** In "The Battle", one Ferengi expresses amazement that the Federation would construct their communicator badges out of gold, considering using such a valuable metal for such a utilitarian purpose as wasteful. In ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'', it's established that [[WorthlessYellowRocks gold is actually considered worthless]] in a society where it can be easily replicated, and that Ferengi only use gold to encase latinum, a rare liquid metal that cannot be successfully replicated.

They're also described as man-eaters, later {{Retcon}}ned to mean in a financial sense.

* NobodyEverComplainedBefore: In "Half a Life", the entire species of people who ritualistically kill themselves on their 60th birthdays seems shocked and baffled when one of their own refuses to do so so (because he needs more time in order save the whole planet - also, he'd fallen in love with Lwaxana). Apparently none of their 60-year-olds had ever had any qualms about dying before. Or alternatively, looking at how closed-off and ritualistic the society is, we don't know that no one has ever complained before. No one is going to check that all these suicides aren't occasionally... "assisted."

* AlikeAndAntitheticalAdversaries: The Federation is a multi species organization, most of their enemies are [[PlanetOfHats at least a bit one dimensional]]. The Borg take the cake though, being a HiveMind that removes individuality.

* AlasPoorVillain: In-universe in "Elementary, Dear Data" and "Ship in a Bottle." After being accidentally made sentient, the Moriarty hologram never does anything overtly villainous, indeed acting polite and well-mannered at all times. The reasons he hijacks the ''Enterprise'' twice are due to his frustration that he simply cannot leave the holodeck and his belief that Picard failed to keep his word about researching a way to give him autonomy: the fact that he somehow managed to [[AndIMustScream remain consious]] during the 4-year gap between activations didn't really help his mood either. Picard even laments having to thwart him, as while he was programmed to act as an arch-villain, Moriarty is still a decent man.

* TookALevelInBadass: Roga Danar in The Hunted. He escapes from a prison especially designed to hold him, repeatedly avoids capture by the Enterprise, takes out several crew members with his bare hands, manages to escape his cell while being transported, overcomes Worf and the entire security force while making his way off the ship, resists both phaser stuns and anesthesia gas, successfully infiltrates his home planet's government building, and forces the leaders to hear his ideas for a peaceful solution.

* FirstContact: ''First Contact'' (the episode and the movie. The first one reverses the polarity by having the aliens be the ones experiencing first contact with humans).

* FirstContact: ''First Contact'' (the The episode and "First Contact" shows the movie. The Enterprise crew making first one contact from the aliens point of view. The movie of that name reverses the polarity by having the aliens be the ones experiencing first contact with humans).humans. In a similar manner, the episode "Homebound" involves Worf's brother sneaking a handful of people from a pre-contact dying world on to the holodeck. One of the people accidentally gets out and we see from his point of view the sheer terror of not only the situation he was in but the very premise of aliens.
