* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The Captain of the Enterprise-B is clearly in over his head and does not know how to proceed when an actual emergency occurs. Kirk is shown as wanting to intervene and take over, but restrains himself because he's not the Captain of the Enterprise-B and simply tries to give quiet advice under his breath to the Captain in order to not be seen undermining him. The problem is, ''people are dying.'' Kirk is an Starfleet Admiral with decades of experience, and would have been perfectly justified to immediately relieve the Captain at the first sign that he wasn't up to the task and focus on saving as many lives as he could. In any military, senior officers are ''expected'' to immediately relieve anyone who can't accomplish the mission. Sure, the Captain of the Enterprise-B was shown as a decent, responsible individual who simply lacked the necessary experience, but if that was the case, ''he never should have been put in command of a starship in the first place.'' Kirk should have immediately recognized this and taken over right away.

* DefectorFromParadise: We have the case of Jean-Luc Picard and the Captain Kirk attempting to escape the Nexus. Kirk is reluctant to leave the Nexus at first, but soon realized that the ability to make a difference in the real world was more important to him than anything the Nexus could offer. [[spoiler: The tipping point is when he jumps a ravine with his horse, one he jumped numerous times in the real world, only to realize here that the element of danger which made it feel exciting when it was real is absent since he knows he's in the Nexus.]]

* AbsenteeActor
** They couldn't get Creator/LeonardNimoy or Creator/{{DeForest Kelley}} to return as Spock and Bones for the opening scene, so Kirk is instead accompanied by Scotty and Chekov. As a result, Chekov seems to be acting in the capacity of a doctor when they pick up the refugees and Scotty calls Kirk "Jim".
** In the alternate opening scene, Kirk boasts about his precision skydiving. Scotty 'helpfully' announces that Kirk was off by a few meters. Definitely a Spock line.

* 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.

* 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.
