** In "[=QPid=]", Q transforms the crew into characters from the RobinHood stories. Geordi is Alan A'Dale, and as a result gets a lute to play with. After a few minutes of tuneless strumming, Worf can't take it anymore, and gets up and smashes the instrument, then hands it back to Geordi, muttering, "Sorry." Much like [[Creator/JohnBelushi a certain]] [[AnimalHouse seven-year pre-med student]] did once.

** 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 [[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL9000.]]

* ComicBookAdaptation: DCComics published several series, including a crossover with Malibu Comics' ''Deep Space Nine'' title. Included in DC's run was an adaptation of the the TNG finale episode "All Good Things..." Later, MarvelComics ran a series before DC took the licence back for its Wildstorm imprint, and later IDW Publishing got the rights.

* PretendToBeBrainwashed: In the episode "Conspiracy", Picard uncovers an alien plot to infect the leadership of Starfleet with {{Puppeteer Parasite}}s in preparation for an all-out invasion. He goes straight to Starfleet Command to scope out which of his superiors haven't been infected, but he walks into a trap and is captured. Then Riker appears and seems to have been taken over by a parasite, but it was really a ploy so he could help Picard take them out (he couldn't reveal this to Picard without blowing his cover).

* DiseaseByAnyOtherName: In one episode, Data is damaged and loses his memories while recovering a piece of a Starfleet probe that had crashed on a medieval style RubberForeheadAlien World. Data, with no way of knowing the piece of the probe he had with him was radioactive, has no problem letting the local blacksmith start making trinkets and jewelry out of that odd new metal. Soon the entire village is sick (as radioactive particles have seeped into the water table from smithing) and, predictably, the villagers blame the strange newcomer for their problems.

* ThePunishmentIsTheCrime: In "The Survivors", the Enterprise crew encounter an alien entity who committed genocide against a warlike species after they killed his human wife during an attempted conquest of the couple's colony. Picard decides the only thing they can do is to leave the immortal energy being alone. The Enterprise has no way to pass sentence on him, but he's already mad with grief over his wife's death and filled with remorse for his crime. His self-imposed isolation is its own sentence.

* TooAwesomeToUse: The Borg were this for the show's creators. The Borg were so awesomely powerful (and impossible to negotiate with) that they only got used four times (6 episodes, because of 2-parters) over the entire 7 seasons of the show. It was just that hard to come up with a way to defeat the Borg without making them seem less awesome. Of those 4 times the Borg show up, the crew is saved once by essentially Divine Intervention, once they are merely facing an individual drone and the challenge is to make him an individual, not to defeat him, and only twice during the run of the TV series do they actually defeat the Borg.

** This was made even worse by the trial, in which noone even bothered to point out that Wesley did not intentionally step over the marker (hence violating the law). He was trying to catch a ball, and tripped and fell. One wonders what the legal system on that planet would've said if they had made this argument.
