* CombatPragmatist: Kirk and the Romulan Preytor, both. As noted below the Romulan is prepared to use the body of his dead crew to fake their destruction, and Kirk learns pretty rapidly from his earlier mistakes in confronting the Romulans. This leads to them ultimately acknowledging each other as [[WorthyOpponent Worthy Opponents]].

* DueToTheDead: The Romulan commander orders the dead Centurion's body dumped into space along with a bunch of debris to [[PlayingPossum make it seem that his ship has been destroyed]] -- but he is clearly distressed about it, and [[TalkingToTheDead asks his late friend to forgive him]].

Added DiffLines:

* FatalFlaw: The destructive capabilities of the Romulan plasma torpedoes give everyone an OhCrap moment, but it soon becomes apparent that it has very limited range.


Added DiffLines:

* YouLookFamiliar: Mark Lenard, who plays the Romulan Commander here, would go on to play Spock's father in "Journey to Babel" and a Klingon Commander in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture''. Some fans humorously call Lenard's Romulan Commander [[SdrawkcabName "Keras" ("Sarek" spelled backwards)]].
