* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Kirk and his highest bridge officers beam into danger in every episode, despite the presence of specialists on board for that purpose. At least when [=McCoy=] is on the away team, Dr. M'Benga covers in Sickbay as acting CMO.

** There is now a remastered version of Star Trek with modern, CGI special effects. In contrast to the changes done on ''Film/StarWars'', the remastering is generally (though far from universally) well-received (it helps that versions with the original effects remain widely available). It should also be noted they ''only'' remastered the original special effects and didn't take the opportunity to [[HanShotFirst tweak any plot points]].

The CGI also embraces a degree of StylisticSuck, so that the improved effects aren't jarring against original footage.

** Also when the Romulans decide to [[HonorBeforeReason self-destruct rather than surrender]] in "Balance of Terror".

to:

** Also when the Romulans decide to [[HonorBeforeReason self-destruct rather than surrender]] in "Balance of Terror". The Romulan Commander considers his mission itself to be this. He's testing new weapons (a cloaking device and extremely powerful plasma torpedo) to see if the Romulans have a sufficient technological edge to win another war against the Federation, and to see if the Federation has grown soft in the intervening years. He's concerned that his mission is going ''too'' well, and a new war will be the result, with senseless wastes of human and Romulan lives on both sides. All serving to highlight he and Kirk being NotSoDifferent.

* StrawVulcan: Among other examples, in "[[Recap/StarTrekS1E16TheGalileoSeven The Galileo Seven]]", we're shown Spock's first command, as the shuttle he is in charge of crashes on a desolate planet filled with savage aliens. Spock determines that a display of superior force will logically frighten away these aliens while the crew make repairs to the shuttle. Instead, as Dr. [=McCoy=] points out, the aliens have an emotional reaction and become angry and attack, something Spock did not anticipate. In the end, Spock's desperate act of igniting the fuel from the shuttle to create a beacon proves to be the correct action since it gets the attention of the Enterprise and allows for a rescue. When called on this "emotional" act, Spock replies that the only logical course of action in that instance was one of desperation.

When called on this "emotional" act, Spock replies that the only logical course of action in that instance was one of desperation. Also, much of the conflict in the episode comes from Spock steadfastly refusing to take the emotional reactions of the men under his command into account, or to even acknowledge that they have them, expecting them all to act like cool, logical Vulcans. Spock's been around humans long enough he should know this attitude is illogical.

*** '''Spock.''' Miss Galliulin... It is my sincere hope that you do not give up your search for Eden. I have no doubt but that you will find it, or make it yourselves.

* SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains: The mirror universe. Though you'd be hard-pressed to take the basic female Starfleet uniform and make it skimpier without violating broadcast codes, they found a way.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Afrofuturism}}: Star Trek, while not afro-futurist in and of itself, did have an influence on the genre due to the presence of Uhura; the fact that a black person had a place on a futuristic space ship left a serious impact on young viewers.
