* RandomEvent: While Picard is using the Dixon Hill program, a blonde approaches him. Picard's mild surprise in encountering her even though he specified the chapter for the program to run suggests that her presence works as one of these.

** Data, being made of metal and all. RuleOfFunny also plays a small part, as well.
** Averted with the Borg, fortunately for Picard. This started a long fan debate over why Starfleet doesn't issue firearms, which ignores the fact that Picard's submachine gun worked because it was unexpected, not necessarily because it's a WeaksauceWeakness (it successfully killed two drones, but the number of drones that get sacrificed before the Borg adapt is usually about three).

well. Leads to a ContinuitySnarl given how he was only semi-resistant to arrows in the episode ''Q-Pid''.

There is on-screen evidence that the Borg were already starting to adapt as early as the second drone given how Picard took twice as long to gun it down.

* 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.

* 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.

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