* TheOtherDarrin: Technically James Cromwell since Glen Corbett played the role first, however it goes without saying that more people know Cromwell's performance over Corbett's, making Corbett ThePeteBest.
** Of course, Corbett also experienced AuthorExistenceFailure in 1993, so he wasn't really available.



* StableTimeLoop: The ''Enterprise'' crew creates either this or successfully TrickedOutTime, and itís not completely clear which one. While the crew believe they are doing the latter, itís unclear whether Lily rode with Cochrane in the original timeline and then later Riker and Geordi replaced her, or whether Riker and Geordi were always the ones who flew with Cochrane. Why have none of the ''Enterprise'' crew have ever heard of Lily, especially since they are such fanboys of Cochraneís? It may be that Lily never rode with Cochrane in the ''Phoenix'', and the ''Enterprise''ís role in first contact was understandably excluded from the historical account.

** ENT established that the Vulcans had been observing Earth for decades. First Contact happened when it did because it occurred during one of these survey missions.

* BadPresent: Borgified Earth. The atmosphere is copper brown, the landscape metallic grey, and transport links stretch like cobwebs over the oceans.

* CombatPragmatist: The Borg drone who is slashed up by Worf makes a small hole in the knee of Worf's spacesuit, forcing him to pause and try and close the leak. Of course by then, it's too late for the drone.

** Lily, probably due to her having to live in the post-atomic horror. She's fully willing to shoot at two (seemingly) unarmed men who are claiming to help her, even shooting one of them in the back when given the opportunity to do so. When she later finds out that the ''Enterprise'' crew has the ability to auto-destruct the ship and escape she's absolutely flabbergasted that they haven't done so.


Added DiffLines:

** Lily's clearly terrified after she empties her machine gun into Data's back and he doesn't even slow down.

*** The RedShirt getting his ass handed to him might have been because he hit the drone in the chest. The drone that Worf takes down with his phaser rifle was hit in the neck.

* WhatTheHellHero: Picard's crew are visibly hesitant to follow his increasingly judgment-impaired orders, and Worf has a particularly venomous response when Picard calls him a coward for refusing to obey an order that's outright suicidal. Then Lily gives Picard a big one for his willingness to sacrifice his crew to get revenge on the Borg instead of doing the necessary thing. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Picard finally wises up]] and orders the evacuation and destruction of his ship, like he should have earlier.
