* AlienInvasion: Implied as to the Borg's motives- had they succeeded they'd have invaded and assimilated the entire Earth, as the Enterprise detects whilst in the time vortex.

** One of the ships in the Fleet vs. the Borg was the ''Bozeman'' from the television episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS5E18CauseAndEffect Cause and Effect]]." They even brought back Creator/KelseyGrammer -- who played the Captain of the ''Bozeman'' in that episode -- to voice the ''Bozeman''[='=]s acknowledgement of attack orders.
** When the Borg Queen asks Data when the last time he had sexual intercourse was, his answer (including Data's comment that's he's "fully functional" and "programmed in multiple techniques") dates back to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'s second episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS1E2TheNakedNow The Naked Now]]." (On a side note, this means that he never had sex with Jenna D'Sora in the episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E25InTheory In Theory]].")
** The holonovel Picard runs in order to access a Tommy Gun is ''[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS1E11TheBigGoodbye The Big Goodbye]]''. This callback is especially apt as the plot of that episode is not only the first ever {{Holodeck}} malfunction, but also features a character being maimed with a holographic gun. In this case, the safeties were deliberately turned off to achieve the same effect.

* KnowWhenToFoldThem: Picard, being a Determinator when it comes to the Borg, is (initially) utterly opposed to any notion of retreat or surrender regarding them. Lily makes Picard re-evaluate his priorities when she compares him to Captain Ahab, being so bent on revenge that he doesn't think about the painful- but more effective- way out.
