* TheFutureIsNoir: Very noticeably so, compared to the way the exact same USS ''Enterprise'' sets appeared on [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the TNG television series]]. The set designer on this movie knew that the sets had been built for the considerably lower resolution of television, and that they'd never stand up to the scrutiny of a cinema screen. The solution? Turn off all the lights, so the audience can't see the joins.
** This is a rather common technique, and is one big reason why a lot of SciFi shows have dark sets. And in this case, they only had to do it for a single movie, since the sequel traded up to the 1701-E with movie quality sets.

* {{Heaven}}: The Nexus. It's not explicitly Heaven... but it is functionally. It's essentially a HappyPlace in physical space that can give you your hearts deepest desire, free of any Aesoptinum fees.

* OutrunTheFireball: An unusual instance, in that it's the ''Enterprise''-D's saucer that's trying to outrun the stardrive section before it explodes. Also subverted in that the saucer ''doesn't'' outrun the fireball -- the explosion's shockwave destroys the saucer's impulse engines and knocks it sharply out of orbit, causing it to crash onto the planet below. Played straight earlier with the supernova, though it wasn't the case of outrunning it safely, it was outrunning it safely and making sure the Away Team was on board before it destroyed the space station it was at.

* RunningGag[=/=]RuleOfThree: Quite a bit of the ''Enterprise''-B's equipment and essential crew will not be available until next Tuesday, much to Captain Kirk's compounding frustration and Captain Harriman's embarrassment when a crisis breaks out.

* WasItReallyWorthIt: In the Nexus, Kirk laments that his years of service to Starfleet only seemed to earn him an empty house, noting the relationships he missed because he was too busy being captain. He changes his tune when he sees the Nexus for what it really is.

** In the alternate opening scene, Kirk boasts about his precision skydiving. Chekov 'helpfully' announces that Kirk was off by a few meters. Definitely a Spock line.

As is Scotty's, after Kirk keeps getting up and sitting down as he struggles with countermanding the new, way-out-of-his-depth ''Enterprise'' Captain's orders: "Captain, is there something wrong with your chair?"

* {{Foil}}: Doctor Soran and Captain Picard: Both characters had lost loved ones to certain circumstances (Soran to the Borg, and Picard to a fire), and both were also devastated by the deaths. The difference is that while Soran is perfectly willing to destroy entire worlds so he'd at least be reunited with his family in some fashion (by the Nexus), Picard isn't.

* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: One of the most subtle examples on record. At the beginning of the film, the main cast is wearing their [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration ST:TNG]]-era uniforms, with the black shoulders and colored torso. Then a few [[RedShirt Red Shirts]] in the background are seen with the updated [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine ST:DS9]] color scheme with the black torso and colored shoulders. Then Data starts wearing it. And then Riker, and Geordi, and finally Picard. In at least one case with Riker his uniform literally changes between two scenes where he couldn't possibly have had time to do so in real life. See the entry under ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy below for a possible explanation for all this uniform madness.

** As Harriman is worrying about helping the El-Aurians, asking Kirk "What about the gravimetric distortions? They'll tear us apart.", Kirk answers "Risk is part of the game if you want to sit in that chair.", echoing his [[DareToBeBadass "Risk is our business"]] [[RousingSpeech speech]] from TOS' "Return To Tomorrow".
