Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: Vaughn belts Sisko after his trip to the Mirror Universe in ''The Soul Key'', because Sisko convinced him that he had a "purpose" in going. What Sisko didn't tell Vaughn was his purpose was [[spoiler:to kill the mirror version of Elias Vaughn.]]
--> '''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!

* ''Force And Motion'' (upcoming)


Added DiffLines:

* 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".

* ''Ascendance''



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.

Added DiffLines:

* ShellShockedVeteran: [[spoiler:Kira starts showing signs of this in ''Ascendance'' - with limited exception, she's been fighting one enemy or another for more than half her life and it's finally taking a toll.]]

* 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.

To be fair, that would seem to make perfect sense, sense (Weyoun already existed before the invasion of the Alpha Quadrant, and it would've been rather silly to delete the genetic database in the Gamma Quadrant just because a new Alpha Quadrant cloning facility was built), 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

The same goes for Vaughn's vision in ''Unity'', which actually shares a setting with Sisko's "Benny Russell" visions.


Added DiffLines:

** "I think that ship has gone to warp" (said by a Bajoran, but probably general Federation)


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."

** [[spoiler: In a very twisted way, Kira contributes to the mess that is Iliana Ghemor by killing her fiancé in a bombing]].



* CrisisOfFaith: [[spoiler: Taran'atar; Cenn Desca]].



* HeelFaceTurn: Taran'atar. On a lesser note, Captain Solok is surprisingly gracious when he crops up at a key moment in ''Lesser Evil'', even though Kira uses a reminder of his humiliation in ''Take Me Out to the Holosuite'' in order to get him there. Finally, ''Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts of Empire'' reveals that [[spoiler: Raiq and some of the other Ascendants now live and study on Bajor]].

* HeroicSacrifice: Amng others, [[spoiler: Sirella]] in ''The Left Hand of Destiny''.
* {{Heroic Vow}}: Used satirically in flashbacks with Dukat, who likes (liked) making "heroic" vows (not understanding he's in no way a hero). Fellow Cardassian Ataan makes a few too, and there it's simply tragic; he's a good man, but is in over his head and clearly doesn't qualify as a hero.

* HolierThanThou: Vedek Yevir, who has ambitions to be kai. At first he looks like a retread of Kai Winn in some regards (tensions with Kira included). However...he got better later on, particuarly in ''Worlds of Deep Space Nine: Cardassia'', where he has a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]], and one befitting a religious minister (he talks a 14-year old would-be suicide bomber into standing down). He might well be worthy of the kai position after all.

** A Hirogen also shows up in ''Demons of Air and Darkness'', and the Hirogen culture is also based entirely on this trope. The Hirogen in question meets his match in Taran'atar.



* {{Journey To The Center Of The Mind}}: The Annuated of the Trill symbionts, their eldest and wisest members, take Dax on one of these after she pesters them for information. One of them essentially "pulls" her into its mind telepathically, so she can search through its memories.

* {{King Arthur}}: ''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.

* TimeSkip: The relaunch continues, more or less, in ''Literature/StarTrekTyphonPact'', which is set five years after the latest books in the series proper. One of the plot threads in ''Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony'' explores how Shar and the Andorians are doing in the aftermath of ''Literature/StarTrekDestiny'', and the Borg attack on Andor. Also, ''Rough Beasts of Empire'' deals with Sisko's increasingly problematic family life, as well as revealing what Kira and Vaughn are up to. Finally, ''Zero Sum Game'' catches up with Bashir.

** The five-year gap is finally filled in ''Sacraments of Fire'', where we see how the Ascendant conflict unfolded.


Added DiffLines:

** The Ascendants acquire a few, with which to destroy those who dare to worship falsely - and to ignite the Final Conflagration as prophesied in their sacred texts.
