* IdiotBall: When Wesley barricades himself in Main Engineering, using his portable tractor beam to forcefield the door, the Chief Engineer has to go through a complicated process to cut power to his device. No one thinks to just grab a phaser and melt the unprotected glass.



* LegendaryInTheSequel: Averted--when the crew looks up the original ''Enterprise'', none of them seem particularly familiar with the ship or James Kirk. This is in contrast to ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', both of which play this trope straight with Kirk being famous and much admired.
** Which is weird, considering that Bones gave the show a send-off an entire episode ago.

* [[NotHimself Not Themselves]]: Just about everybody by the end of the episode -- Worf is the only main character not to be affected at all, Riker doesn't start showing any symptoms until right before he's cured anyway, and Dr. Crusher is eventually able to shrug off the effects of the virus -- though it's been noted how odd it is to have this kind of story as just the second episode. We've just barely gotten to know these characters, so how is their acting out of character supposed to be any fun?

* {{Retcon}}: The Enterprise looking like the movie version has already been mentioned, but the episode also changed polywater from "The Naked Time's" form of water (as the then-cutting edge scientific concept of polywater said it was) to a kind of virus which for unexplained reasons is called polywater (as polywater had turned out to not actually be possible in the early '70s).

Dr. Crusher decides that Geordi should be confined due to his strange behavior. Naturally, Geordi is left unsupervised and unconfined, and he wanders off. Meanwhile, Wesley has decided to take recordings of Picard and [[TwistingTheWords Twist the Words]] to make it sound like he's putting Wesley in command. Geordi, of course, doesn't see any problem with this and compliments Wesley on his ingenuity. Data finds the relevant information after much difficulty (apparently Google didn't survive to the twenty-fourth century) and then the episode ends. No, of course not--this is a mutation immune to [=McCoy's=] antidote. Instead, Yar gets infested from Geordi and Troi from her. Yar becomes hot for Data and improbably infects him. Troi throws herself at Riker, who takes her to Sickbay and infects Crusher. Crusher now wants to get it on with Picard. Interesting how the infection causes the women to get horny, but not the men.

* LampshadeHanging: The crew finds computer records that point out that this is exactly what happened in ''[[Recap/StarTrekS1E4TheNakedTime The Naked Time]]''.



* {{Vaporwear}}: Tasha Yar. That outfit has the least amount of cloth possible to make a wrap out of; it's clear there's nothing under it.
