* 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.

* 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.

* 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."]]

* GiganticMoon: Despite deserved praise for its attention to detail with modern science, they have taken artistic license with Earth's moon. From orbit, the moon is no different in size to human eyes than on land.

*** Wee learn that Troi taught Riker to be able to hear her thoughts. Never ever brought up again despite the two dozen or so times it would have been useful.

*** Wee Data in general is ''far'' more expressive than he was in the rest of the series, even smiling quite naturally in his appreciation of Riker's ability to whistle:
--->'''Data:''' ''Marvelous!'' How easily humans do that.
