* ChewingTheScenery: A Klingon in "The Trouble With Tribbles" insults the ''Enterprise'' ForTheEvulz, underlining the last two words of this speech loud and clear with a wide-eyed stare: "I didn't mean to say that the ''Enterprise'' should be hauling garbage. I meant to say that it should be hauled away '''''as''''' ''garbage!''"

* AlanSmithee:
** The writer of "[[{{Recap/StarTrekS2E20ReturnToTomorrow}} Return to Tomorrow]]" had himself credited under a pseudonym in protest against a change that was made to the ending.
** Two episodes in the third season, "[[{{Recap/StarTrekS3E17ThatWhichSurvives}} That Which Survives]]" and " [[{{Recap/StarTrekS3E20TheWayToEden}} The Way to Eden]]", were developed from storylines by Trek veteran writer D.C. Fontana, but bear the credit "Story by Michael Richards" because Fontana felt the final episodes diverged too far for her to feel comfortable putting her name on them.

* GenreSavvy:
** Scotty, whenever he is left in command of the ''Enterprise.'' There's "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me," and the time that he receives an audio message from "Kirk" and the first thing he does is run it through a voice analyzer which proves it isn't really Kirk. Do not fuck with Scotty.
** "Diplomats. [[GunboatDiplomacy The best diplomat I know is a fully armed phaser bank.]]" [[AssInAmbassador Given the quality of the Federation's diplomatic staff]], Scotty definitely has a point.



* WideEyedIdealist: Edith Keeler in "The City on the Edge of Forever", a passionate advocate of peace--[[{{Wrong Genre Savvy}} in the face of Nazi Germany]].

** Kirk vs. Spock in "[[Recap/StarTrekS2E1AmokTime Amok Time]]" is the other classic example. Spock is {{Badass}} enough when he's in his right mind. Spock ''driven beyond the point of insanity'' by his mating instinct is horrifying for Kirk and [=McCoy=]!
