** The ''Enterprise''[='=]s EMH program tells Dr. Crusher [[ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder "I'm a doctor, not a doorstop."]]. For his audition as the EMH on ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', Robert Picardo had [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed]] the line "I'm a doctor, not a nightlight". While having ''no idea'' that was a famous line from the franchise.

** The ''Enterprise''-E was originally planned to be another ''Galaxy''-class--they even built a GCS model painted with the letters NCC-1701-E--but decided later to go with the more aggressive-looking ''Sovereign''-class.

** The ''Defiant'' was outright destroyed in one draft of the script. Unsurprisingly, the ''[=DS9=]'' staff objected to what effects this would create for their show, so it was changed. (Incidentally, the ship would be destroyed on ''[=DS9=]'', but not for another 2 and a half years.)

* RecycledSet: Aside from exceptions like the Bridge and Engineering, most of the ''Enterprise''-E's sets are actually modified versions of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'''s sets. It's particularly obvious in Sickbay, whose layout is almost unchanged.
* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: The original Playmates version of the ''Enterprise''-E takes some cues from an unused design for the ship, most notably the uncovered bussard collectors and the large singular impulse engine.

unchanged. (You could argue that's Starfleet design or even budget issues- why make sickbays look different on their larger ships?)

* TheOtherDarrin: James Cromwell replaces Glenn Corbett as Zefram Cochrane, who first appeared in the original series episode "[[Recap/StarTrekS2E9Metamorphosis Metamorphosis]]". However it is now almost a given that more people know Cromwell's performance over Corbett's, making Corbett ThePeteBest.
** Of course, Corbett also experienced AuthorExistenceFailure in 1993, so he wasn't really available.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The ''Defiant'' is heavily damaged and her bridge is darkened and filled with debris because the set was intended to only be shown on television and wouldn't have looked good fully lit on a cinema screen.
