* The "alternate" opening to ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'''s MirrorUniverse episode "In a Mirror Darkly" still says "Based on ''Franchise/StarTrek'' Created by GeneRoddenberry." Do we even want to ''know'' what ''that'' looked like?

** There's another bit of Fridge Brilliance on the part of the Borg that was dinged by ''Website/SFDebris''. In his review, Chuck dinged the Borg for not including the "We are the Borg" part of their standard greeting. Given that these Borg were from the future, so they know how it plays out, they wouldn't want to give the Federation any heads up. If they did their standard greeting, then when Picard got back from J25, all Starfleet would have had to do is type "Borg" into LCARS-Google and they'd get ways to resist/stop assimilation, ways to modify weapons to work, etc. and already be at a post Best of Both Worlds level of tactics and tricks. Or even better, when the El-Aurians started talking about the Borg, they would start preparing nearly 70 years ahead of time. But this way, all they have are some vague 200 year old references buried deep in some archives somewhere that probably just has vague references to cybernetics, which could easily be confused with something like, say, the Bynars. -- Tropers/Zatman

*** They're not talking about phaser rifles. They're talking about something more like an AK-47. Sometimes KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter.

* Another entry related to "Carbon Creek." I always felt the episode offers a great, organic explanation for why T'Pol has such difficulty controlling her emotions and is so rebellious: her great-grandmother T'Mir. She displays most of the same characteristics that her descendant eventually would, so clearly it's something that runs in the family. This idea was strengthened when we find out that T'Pol's mother T'Les, as a high-ranking Syrranite, is a revolutionary. The female line kept that story alive, and kept that purse preserved, for four Vulcan generations. T'Pol not only had the purse with her on Earth, but took it with her onto Enterprise. She never took a vacation, but she took a pilgrimage to the place where her ancestor made first contact with Earth, violated the Prime Directive in numerous ways, and lied to her superiors. T'Pol combines the mindset she shares with her female family members, the rebellious attitude they've fostered for centuries, with actual experience with humans that exceeds even T'Mir's. No need for her father to randomly be a Romulan spy.

* Remember that BewareTheNiceOnes speech that Quark gave Nog in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' about how when pushed hard enough, "hoo-mans" can become as dangerous as [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Klingons]]? "The Expanse" demonstrates this subtly but effectively, and not just the part where ''Enterprise'' blasts Duras' bird-of-prey to hell. The area where ''Enterprise'' is headed, called the Delphic Expanse, is considered so dangerous and unpredictable that even the Klingons are afraid of it. When ''Enterprise'' is just about to enter the Expanse, Duras' wingmen bug out, and his own crew think he's nuts for wanting to chase ''Enterprise'' in there. Yet our heroes are flying in without a second thought to find the Xindi who attacked Earth. Piss humanity off enough, and they'll charge in where ''Klingons'' fear to tread.

* 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 They Are As Mayflies]]. 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

**** 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.
