* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: As far as we can tell, Geordi still has that camera in his VISOR and no one even knows about it. Luckily, this doesn't cause many problems given his switch to prosthetic eyes in the next film.

* YearOutsideHourInside: The Nexus is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - a nexus for ''all'' points in time, thus time is meaningless. So, no matter how much "time" is spent within the Nexus, no time actually passes, so anyone exiting the Nexus hasn't acted a femtosecond.

** This line is extra funny if you know Picard was born only a couple years after Kirk's "death" on the Ent-B.

to:

** This line is extra funny if you know Kirk entered service approximately 50 years before Picard was born. If we assume his father and grandfather were born only a couple years after Kirk's "death" on the Ent-B.when their own parents were in their twenties or thirties, it works out.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: El-Aurians are "a race of listeners". Well, Dr. Soran shows what happens when they use their powers of observation for evil, as he expertly manipulates Picard in a quietly malicious manner.



* AppealToNovelty: Many of the more infamous storytelling decisions were made in an attempt to be more "unexpected" and "unconventional," but frequently forgetting that TropesAreTools and TropesAreNotBad. As WebOriginal/SFDebris put it, Moore and Braga were basically saying "Did that story suck? Great, that's just what we were going for!"

* {{Irony}}: Soren, a LongLived El Aurien, rambling about aging and the passage of time to Picard, a human that Soren could easily expect to outlive by centuries under normal circumstances.

* {{Irony}}: Soren, a LongLived El Aurien, rambling about aging and the passage of time to Picard, a human that Soren could easily expect to outlive by centuries under normal circumstances. Earlier, Scotty refers to the ''Enterprise''-B as "a damn fine ship". That's hilarious, considering he spent the previous 8 years (movies 3 through 6) insulting the ''Excelsior'', which is the same ship class. It's due to the fact that Scotty at the time was not pleased with the ''Excelsior'' being touted as a better ship than the ''Enterprise''.

* FailureHero: Picard. As {{SF Debris}} put it, the story is less the team-up of two legendary captains like we were promised, than Picard putzing around for an hour until the real hero finally shows up.

** Shortly after the D12 is destroyed, the movie cuts to Geordi in engineering examining an open panel and in the middle of a conversation about the damage the ship's taken. He turns around and communicates with the bridge, only to be cut off as the panel he's just walked away from [[ExplosiveInstrumentation explodes]] and engineering rapidly degenerates from being a mess to being an outright hazardous environment. As he's ushering everyone out, Geordi tells the bridge that they're a few minutes away from a warp-core breach he can't stop. This scene mirrors one from the episode "Yesterday's Enterprise",'' where the ship was fatally damaged fighting Klingons in an alternate timeline. It helped that David Carson directed both "Yesterday's Enterprise" and ''Generations''. It's even the same panel which blows out. The only difference is the time to breach is increased from two minutes to five (to make the subsequent evacuation more believable).
