* {{Excalibur}}: The Sword of Kahless is the Klingon equivalent. This is played up as part of the whole "Martok is KingArthur" theme in ''The Left Hand of Destiny''.

-->“I don’t fault you for not seeing the big picture, Captain. After what was done to me, it took me a while to understand what I needed to do so that I could be whole again. But when I meet the Prophets, they’ll see inside me, just as they did with your Emissary. They’ll understand what I need to get my life back. And I’ll use the Soul Key to find every other [[spoiler: Kira]] that has laid claim to a piece of my soul”.

* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Trier, though she’s a bit of a subversion in that she’s not just a pretty face - she’s a ruthless businesswoman too, and possibly the first female employee Quark truly respects.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Brunt accuses Quark of being a hypocrite; after his big speech in the penultimate episode about how the old Ferenginar will live on in his bar, he’s quickly integrated into the new Ferengi system, however reluctantly. He works for the government (thanks to Rom bailing him out with an ambassadorship), which means he pays taxes. And he has a female deputy manager. Quark himself admits that his vision of holding out was a little foolish.

* KingArthur: ''The Left Hand of Destiny'' turned the ongoing Klingon saga into this, in part. Martok is Arthur. Worf is Lancelot, Emperor Kahless is Merlin, Alexander is Percival, Ezri Dax is the Lady in the Lake, Morjod is (obviously, {{Meaningful Name}}) Mordred, Gothmara is Morgan Le Fay. Martok's father, Urthog, is another obvious Arthurian homage. And the Sword of Kahless is of course Excalibur.

* MeaningfulName: Morjod; think Mordred from KingArthur. To a lesser extent, possibly Pifko Gaber (as in "gabber"; he never stops talking). And in ''Worlds of Deep Space Nine: Andor'', Prynn and Thirishar discuss the significance of their respective names, and their parents' inspiration.

* ScienceIsBad: The Andorian population are up in arms over the nature of the research rumoured to be undertaken by the Science Academy; the re-engineering of the Andorian genome. In an attempt to solve the Andorian fertility problems and genetic crisis, the possibility of re-engineering four-gendered Andorians as two-gendered beings is being discussed. Such a project would tear the traditional Andorian culture to tatters, and the idea is condemned by many.

* SplitPersonality: Iliana Ghemor, who was implanted with the memories and personality of Kira Nerys as part of an undercover operation. Now, she has both her original memories and Kira's, and considers herself the rightful inheritor to the real Kira's life. Because Kira set the bomb which killed Iliana's bethrothed during the Occupation of Bajor, she also has a split perspective on his death - as both the guilty party and a victim.

--> '''Vaughn:''' You played on my trust, you told me everything you knew I'd need to hear to get me to play your game. You even convinced me to lie to my own CO - your friend! You planned all that very carefully, Captain, so don't you dare stand there and tell me to my face that you didn't have a choice! ''Everyone'' has a choice!

* MortonsFork: The Ascendants react one of two ways when encountering other species - if the aliens worship gods other than "The True", they are heretics who should be exterminated for worshiping false gods. If the aliens worship "The True", they are...heretics who should be exterminated because only Ascendants are permitted to worship "The True".

See also the ''Literature/TerokNor'' trilogy, a prequel series with heavy ties to the relaunch. Another prequel of sorts is the Original Series novel ''Allegiance in Exile", which features the Ascendants, a race introduced in the relaunch.

* WeaponOfMassDestruction: Locken's bioweapon-laden missiles. Also, in a crossover story with the ''StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers'', someone tries to turn abandoned station Empok Nor into a mobile weapons platform. It would have been powerful enough to lay waste to entire star systems had it been completed.

* {{Retcon}}: The ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' finale insisted that the Weyoun clone killed on Cardassia was in fact the character's last, and thus he couldn't return. Despite this being stated quite clearly - the intent was obviously to establish that this time, he was ''staying'' dead - he eventually shows up in the relaunch, freshly cloned again. His ninth, to be exact. It therefore "turns out" that Weyoun's genetic profile was on file in the Gamma Quadrant. To be fair, that would seem to make perfect sense, so his return isn't at all implausible. Still, it clearly defies the intent of the series finale, and the statements made by the Founder leader. When confronted with the little matter of "they said it was your last clone that died on Cardassia!", Weyoun Nine cheerfully dismisses the whole issue. ''Of course'' he's back.

* InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike[=/=]WhoNamesTheirKidDude: Leeta names her daughter with Rom "Bena", after both Ben Sisko and the Bajoran word for "joy". Unfortunately, in Ferengi "Bena" means "underflooring" (which Rom tries to justify as a reference to how children tend to get underfoot)

* AndYouWereThere: During Kira Nerys' vision quest in ''Warpath'', her imaginary troops implicitly correspond to the people she interacts with in the real world. The names are the most prominant clue, being anagrams of the usual characters' names.

Added DiffLines:

** When the devout Colonel Cenn [[spoiler: learns the Ohalavaru have a point]] in ''Sacraments of Fire'', he immediately becomes what Creator/TerryPratchett would call "an atheist of the old-fashioned, angry at God for not existing type."
