**** But wouldn't treating Archer's genetic disease go against the "evolutionary predestination" Phlox believes in?

** Well, thanks to [[StarTrekIntoDarkness J J Abrams]], we now know that the monologue is the in-universe "Captain's Oath", meaning all Starfleet captains recite some version of it. Even Sisko ("...Five year mission to kick ass," indeed!). It's very likely the tradition still started with Cochrane and Archer, though.

* Consider the automated repair station from Dead Stop. It tried to kidnap Travis to wire his brain into some kind of computing matrix, and towards the end we encounter a room filled with all the aliens it has captured. Terrifying though this is, it could be worse. This is a ''trading'' post, so it's conceivable that it accepts long term contracts as well as simple repair jobs. So, there may well be a species out there that, for whatever reason, steals people's bodies and is willing to trade with amoral robots for them.

** It's a common, if understandable misconception that Q Who was meant to be the first encounter of any kind between the Federation and Borg. In a neat bit of FridgeLogic, Picard actually recognizes the Borg cube, and, without referencing anyone else or the computer at all, calls Guinan and asks, 'you're familiar with this life form?' This interaction makes no sense if the El-Aurians never informed the Federation about the Borg, which is backed up later by both Generations and Voyager.

* Actually a reaction to a [[Website/SFDebris]] review, but that work's Fridge page is reserved for Chuck's in-universe conclusions. In his review of "Carbon Creek", Chuck tears into Stronn for making StrawVegetarian arguments against killing a deer, then turning around and [[AlienNonInterferenceClause trying to justify leaving humans to die]] because [[WeAreAsMayflies TheyAreAsMayflies]]. He (Chuck) points out that the deer wouldn't live even as long as a human, so the Vulcans should be justified killing and eating it. But my FridgeBrilliance is that ''Stronn doesn't know that''. He's never seen a deer. For all he knows at the time, that deer could live another two centuries. -- Classified

* Maybe this doesn't belong here, and maybe I've subconsciously taken it from somewhere, but why did Picard have to tell his replicator he wanted his tea hot? Because one of the guys working on the replicator since before it was used for food and drink was from the South, where tea is iced! -- Tropers/Alvin

** While any fan is loath to use "These Are the Voyages" as an example, it's subtly implied that the "modern" introduction may have been first paraphrased by Archer. Which means that he was the one most likely responsible for flubbing Cochrane's grammatically correct "let us go boldly", into the more famous version, "to boldly go".

** It's explicitly stated in ''Voyager'' that there were at least rumors of the Borg before Enterprise-D encountered them. Seven's parents went looking for them about a decade before official first contact. Also in the first episode with the Borg, they mention that a planet attacked by the Borg looks just like the remains of Federation and Romulan outposts that were destroyed along the Neutral Zone. Which implies the Borg were already making moves into the Federation's neighborhood. So yeah, the ''Enterprise'' Borg episode actually fits surprisingly well. --Tropers/DrLunar
