** This action ultimately haunts the Federation a few decades later in StarTrekOnline: [[spoiler: The Prophets didn't actually get rid of the Dominion Fleet, they just moved them into the future, likely to a time where the Federation would be in a far more capable position of fighting them. It still meant they were a huge threat to the Alpha Quadrant.]]

** The Founders can imitate any alien species perfectly, but they appear mostly as the same basic humanoid shape as Odo, since he cannot perfectly mimic a humanoid facial appearance. They presumably appear this way to the Alpha Quadrant because the only Founder they know is Odo, thus they chose to resemble him.

* AesopAmnesia: In ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'', Worf and Alexander eventually came to the understanding that Alexander should not be forced to be a warrior and Worf could be proud of him anyway. During the Dominion War, Alexander shows up again, and he and his father show the same resentful, misunderstood attitudes towards each other as though they'd never learned that lesson. (With the added bonus of SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome [[note]]It's never clearly stated that Klingons ''don't'' age more rapidly than humans, but if they did you'd think it would be explicitly stated at some point given how prominent they are.[[/note]]) The variant this time is that this time the positions are reversed; with a war on, Alexander has decided he wants to serve in the military after all. He's still terrible at it though, and Worf can't understand why he bothers instead of pursuing something he's actually good at.

** During the first half of season 7, we learn that [[spoiler:Quark]] is in love with [[spoiler:Ezri]], and it's even hinted the latter might reciprocate. But later on this arc is completely dropped without any resolution, and when [[spoiler:Ezri]] is eventually paired with [[spoiler:Julian]], [[spoiler:Quark]] doesn't comment it at all.

* AGodAmI: Inverted by Weyoun in "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River." When Odo points out that the only reason the Vorta believe the Founders are gods is because they were genetically programmed to believe such, Weyoun says that of course that's true; after all, creating people to worship them is what gods ''do.''

** Founders that go undercover, however, are quite adept at mimicking features of humans (or whatever race they're impersonating). One Founder that had infiltrated Earth ''deliberately'' took the form of Miles O'Brien, whom Sisko knew was off-world, specifically to [[BadassBoast taunt]] Sisko on their superiority in such matters.
* AfraidOfDoctors: Both Dax and Bashir used to be afraid of doctors as children. The latter because he thought they knew anything and could make him sick, so he became a doctor himself to find out how they worked.

** "Inter arma enim silent leges" and "When it Rains..." Just how much established Star Trek history has Section 31 been directly involved in? Assassination attempts, biogenic weapons, nudging governments to act... The writers could have had great fun ret-conning all kinds of ''Trek'' tales by adding a Section 31 presence, but Ron Moore shows mercy and leaves it to our imaginations. Sloan is the Cigarrete-Smoking Man of ''Star Trek'', up to his ears in secrets and fully-convinced that what he's doing is right and just.
** "Shattered Mirror" is a direct sequel to the lighthearted "Mirror, Mirror". In it, we learn that Kirk's meddling in the mirror universe actually made things worse: when Mirror Spock attempted to preach pacifism, the Terran Empire was swamped by the neighboring Alliance, led by Intendant Kira, Garak, and Regent Worf. Now Earth is nothing but a colony for the Cardassians, Klingons and Bajorans (all of them evil in this reality). This was [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagged]] in later episodes; whenever the grind of a 26-episode season got to be too much, the writers would break out another Mirror Universe episode, take the brakes off, and let their actors be as goofy and toothless as possible. It got to be a big joke after awhile; the Mirror Universe in [=DS9=] makes the first season of TNG look like ''Breaking Bad''.

** The Cardassians left behind a number of half-Cardassian children on Bajor during the Occupation, [[ChildByRape most of them not consensual]] due to forced prostitution or outright rape. The children face considerable HalfBreedDiscrimination due to their fathers being part of the occupying army. RecurringCharacter Tora Ziyal is one such case, fathered by Dukat on one of at least two Bajoran mistresses.

*** Canonically, there is a Ferengi book called ''Oo-mox for Fun and Profit''. Oo-mox is a (partially) sexual act, and at the time only Ferengi males were legally allowed to earn profit. Although, knowing the Ferengi, it's entirely possible that the author of said book simply added "and Profit" as an extra advertising incentive- it would hardly be the first case of the Ferengi not presenting an entirely honest title of something.

** [=DS9=] was in many ways an adolescent reaction against Gene Roddenberry. In his memoir ''Resistance is Futile'', Behr talks of Gene shooting down his scripts because they made Picard look unsure of himself or weak. Moore also complained of the conformity onboard the ''Enterprise-D''. The writers weren't really allowed to embrace cultures other than Starfleet and found it tricky to write for this goody-two-shoes crew; in scripts like "Relics" (Mr. Scott manages to capture everything that is wrong with the 24th Century with his reaction to a synthesised Scotch) you can almost taste Moore's disdain. No such problems here: the Dominion would soon remind mankind of its base instincts.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Odo once deduced Quark was lying to him because Rom was not a good engineer ("He couldn't fix a straw if it was bent"), when in later seasons he is proven to be quite the GeniusDitz. They throw in a handwave with a line from Odo when they started to change Rom's character, "I've been watching you, Rom, and you aren't as dumb as you look…" Rom's first appearance in a speaking role is ''markedly'' different from his subsequent appearances. He acts more like a typical Ferengi, and is rather aggressive, yelling at Nog while dragging him around the room. It is rather jarring to watch for someone used to seeing his portrayal throughout the rest of the series. Also jarring to anyone familiar with only the later seasons was Rom's attempt to murder Quark in the first season episode ''The Nagus''.

* CombatMedic: Dr. Bashir ranks up there with TNG's Beverly Crusher on occasion. He once killed a Jem'Hadar with a stab to the ''neck''. He comments on this once, when someone mentions his skill with a phaser. He replies that he wishes it wasn't needed due to him being a medic - but this doesn't stop him from jumping into the fight when the fur really starts to fly. Unlike most Starfleet personnel who have inexplicable expertise outside their areas of skill, Bashir is justified as [[spoiler: he is genetically augmented, making him physically and mentally superior to almost any human.]] In the pilot episode, Bashir asks Odo if there was a place on the promenade where he could get in some target practice; further justifying this.

** Section 31 was another major deconstruction of Roddenberry's utopia, showing that the Federation has just as many skeletons in its closet as its enemies - they're just better at keeping them hidden. And the worst of it is the idea that those skeletons are often ''necessary'' in "a universe that doesn't share your sense of right and wrong".

** The Romulan Empire is attempting to do this in regards to the Dominion fighting the Federation-Klingon alliance. However, as Sisko points out, this will inevitably backfire. Instead of facing two equal strength opponents with differing strategic goals, the Romulans will face only a much stronger Dominion who would be dead set on taking down the Romulans next.

*** The reason he came to Kira as he was dying says a lot about their relationship, and about him. He was folowing an old Cardasian death tradition: Giving all your hoarded secret knowledge about your enemies to someone you trust to use it in a way that will grant you posthumous revenge. (This led to her learning what he had done as well.) In the end, Kira was astonished by his ability to struggle for every last second of life, even when there was no hope of gaining anything but more struggle.

** Becomes an even greater mess when ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' has both uniforms in use simultaneously on the Enterprise. Finally resolves itself when ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' is out, and the uniforms from that movie are then in use for the rest of [=DS=]9, any alpha-quadrant based characters in Voyager (the characters on Voyager itself use the uniforms they had so they don't have to expend energy to replicate the new ones), and the following two TNG movies.

** Becomes an even greater mess when Uniforms in general were in a bit of turmoil during this time of the franchise. ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' has both introduced the color-switched uniforms (colored shoulders, black body, purple turtlenecks underneath) that are worn in use simultaneously the early seasons of ''[=DS9=]'' and all seasons of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', but [[TroubledProduction Costuming had not yet produced enough copies]], leading to some characters (Worf in particular) stuck in their television costumes. The very next film, ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', introduced yet a third variant (grey upholstered shoulders, black body, and the undershirt in red, blue or yellow depending on the Enterprise. Finally resolves itself when ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' is out, and character's department), which took over on [=DS=]9. The ''Voyager'' crew, who [[PlotAndStoryIntegration presumably never got the memo]], retain the uniforms from that movie are then introduced in use for the rest of [=DS=]9, any alpha-quadrant based ''Generations'', but characters in Voyager (the characters on Voyager itself use from the Alpha Quadrant who appear ''on'' that series wear the ''First Contact'' uniforms, imposing order on Starfleet's wardrobe.
*** When Worf shows up in Season 4, he's still wearing the TNG-style uniform in Security/Engineering yellow (apparently, he still hadn't gotten his new uniform). He wears it through the end of "Way of the Warrior" and his official re-assignment to [=DS9=], at which point he shows up in Ops in ''Generations''-style Command red; he has transitioned to the ''First Contact''
uniforms they had so they don't have to expend energy to replicate the new ones), and the following two TNG movies.when he shows up in that film. As a weird side-effect, Worf was never filmed wearing ''Generations''-style yellow.

** Even the comedy episodes are a deliberate "fuck you" to Gene. Roddenberry's immense dislike of "SpacePirates", for instance, is well-documented. Indeed his dislike of the whole genre was so strong that he even included a ban on pirates (or "space princesses"!) in the writer's bible for ''[=Next Gen=]''. His aversion to space pirate stories makes a great deal of sense; the dude wanted Star Trek to be taken seriously, and not derided as trashy pulp. Of course, ''Star Trek'' has broken this rule on quite a number of occasions (most notably the ''[[WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries Animated Series]]'' episode titled ''The Pirates of Orion''), but [=DS9=] is swimming in these sorts of pulpy elements, even casting mirror!Sisko as a scenery-chewing space pirate. In fact, [=DS9=] revived the Orion Syndicate as a recurring entity.
