Added DiffLines:

* AbsenteeActor: Some episodes struggle to include all the actors, even with the MandatoryLine.


Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** The characters received new two-piece uniforms starting in Season 3 because the original one-piece suits were intentionally made one size too small (to look good on camera) and were causing serious back problems.
** "The Defector" was supposed to open with another Sherlock Holmes pastiche, but legal issues forced the writers to retool it into a holodeck simulation of ''HenryV''. This doubles as foreshadowing: Jarok, like King Henry, is forced to go undercover as a 'commoner' in this episode.
** "The Best of Both Worlds" introduces a job opening for Riker on another ship, as well as a new female commander for him to butt heads with. The showrunners were grooming Riker to take over as Captain if Patrick Stewart didn't want to return.

** In The Nth Degree Barclay who has integrated his mind into the computer responds to an order from Picard with "I'm afraid I cant do that, sir," in a manner very reminiscent of [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL9000.]]

** Through no fault of the writers or actors, however; they tried several times, and WhoopiGoldberg even changed some of her dialog. When explaining the concept of love to Lal, which was initially written from a purely heterosexual viewpoint, she pointed out that homosexuality would not be stigmatized in the 24th century of ''Franchise/StarTrek'', and so the lines were changed to be more gender-neutral and inclusive. However, a plan to have a same-sex couple in the background in that scene was nixed by someone on the set calling out the producers in secret, who stood around to make sure that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar nothing slipped by.]] The issue would have to wait for ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' to get any real exposure at all.

* AnachronismStew: Unintentional. The show has not aged well as technology has advanced past some of the 'future' technology. Flashlights are oddly bulky. Medical tests require drawing quite a lot of blood. Handheld computers are outperformed by short-term memory. All the displays use lego sized pixels that only turn green.



** So far the show's managed to avoid falling into this trap ''quite'' as hard and as quickly as TOS did. Mind you there is a general sense of fashion victimism on the ''Enterprise.'' The bridge set feels like the epitome of eighties luxury, all beige leather seats and wood paneling. Cozy-looking seats that lounge waaay back... given that all they are doing is pushing the odd button on an armrest, it's surprising half the crew doesn't fall asleep.

Added DiffLines:

* OldTimeyAnkleTaboo: An episode has the Enterprise pick up a colony who live like stereotype Irishmen from centuries ago. In one scene, Riker is having a conversation with one of the women from the colony and she lifts up her skirt to show her ankles, indicating she wants a relationship with him.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneFantastic: "Rascals" has Captain Picard and three other crew members turned back into children. Instead of examining the fact that they'd just discovered the proverbial Fountain of Youth, with the potential to change life as they knew it forever, the incident is treated as a droll annoyance by all involved.

** In "Phantasms", Data has a nightmare where Counselor Troi is a cake being eaten, which is an awful lot like the music video for TomPetty's "Don't Come Around Here No More".

** In "Arsenal of Freedom", when asked by a computer-generated image of Captain Rice what ship he's come from, Riker responds that he's serving aboard the ''Lollipop.'' "It's just been commissioned; it's a [[ShirleyTemple good ship."]]
