* AmnesiacCostumeIdentity: In the episode "Conundrum", After an alien ship scans the Enterprise, all of the crew members develop amnesia. Worf assumes that he's the captain because he's wearing his decorated Klingon sash.

Added DiffLines:

* ActingUnnatural: In "Unification: Part I", Picard and Data travel to Romulus disguised as Romulans. The owner of a diner immediately pegs them as outsiders -- however, she assumes that they're members of the StateSec (later named the Tal Shiar in "Face of the Enemy"), rather than foreign agents and says their soup is on the house, "courtesy of a loyal establishment."

* SequelEpisode: "The Naked Now" is a direct sequel to TOS' "The Naked Time". (Surely the oddest request anyone has ever given Data is to look through all known records for an instance of Starfleet officers showering in their clothing.) GeorgeTakei [[PretenderDiss wasn't too impressed]] with this one; his opinion of the episode is one you should seek out. Funnily [=DS9=] also had a stab at this sort of episode ("Fascination") and it wasn't too hot, either.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The fighting style used in the series of striking with open palms and the base of the hand is often mocked as ridiculous and unrealistic by audiences. However striking in this manner is widely recommended in self-defense training as it minimizes the chances of breaking one's own hand when hitting someone's face.

* RecordedSplicedConversation: In the episode "The Naked Now", Wesley has created a device that can splice together sound bytes that he's recorded from the ships comm system. He uses it to create recordings of Picard "ordering" the Chief and Assistant Chief Engineers away from Main Engineering.

** "Decent: Part 1": Data begins to feel emotions after coming across a splinter group of Borg who exhibit individuality. Data becomes so addicted to the feelings of anger and pleasure he felt when killing one Borg that he is coaxed by another Borg into meeting "The One", the splinter group's leader. [[spoiler:That leader is revealed to be none other than Lore, Data's PsychoPrototype brother, [[FaceHeelTurn whom Data has joined]]...]]

** "The Mind's Eye" has a variation of this that finds Geordi on the receiving end at the hands of Romulans who condition him to be mind-controlled via his VISOR implants, starting with forcing him to see horrible atrocities to break his mind.

* ExactWords: In "Tapestry", Q promised Picard that is he was allowed to go back in time to change the outcome of his ill-fated bar brawl with Naussicaans that no one would have to die, and he alone would bear the consequences for his changes. Turns out, Q was right; by preventing the bar brawl, Picard never got stabbed, and no one died. Making this change, however, condemns him to life as a lowly junior lieutenant.



** Data also misuses the word ‘obviates’ (removes [a need or a difficulty]; avoids, prevents) as ‘makes obvious’ in the very same poem.

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Normal operating procedure when dealing with Q seems to be to regard him as an annoying neighbor. Sometimes, [[DoNotTauntCthulhu this works out poorly]].

** "A Fistful of Datas" should be [[AFistfulOfDollars pretty self-explanatory]]. The episode also borrows from ''{{Shane}}'' (which director Patrick Stewart watched to get a feel for westerns) and ''Film/{{Westworld}}'' (wherein the holographic outlaws take the form of Data, giving each of them android-level strength and agility).
