* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In ''Fearful Symmetry'', Corbin Entek's speech to Iliana Ghemor during the early part of her Obsidian Order training could have come out of Yoda's mouth in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack''. Pretty chilling coming from a ''bad guy.''

-->“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.

* 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.

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.
