* CreatorBacklash: ** The producers grew to hate cast hated "Angel One" and demanded changes. Believe it or not, the [[ShouldersOfDoom overly-broad shouldered]] uniforms worn by the Romulans.first draft was even ''more'' sexist. There's no salvaging "Code of Honor", though.

** "''Patrick Stewart WILL NEVER BE MENTIONED AGAIN in connection with Star Trek!''" -- actual memo from Gene Roddenberry. Luckily, Patrick had a champion in Rick Berman, director Corey Allan, and others who rigged the auditions in his favor. --->'''Michael Dorn''': Two years later, he's like, [imitating Gene] "...What is ''he'' still doing here?!"\\ '''Jonathan Frakes''': "I told them NO!"

* OfficialFanSubmittedContent- The episode "True Q" was inspired by a fan's suggestion, and may be a nod to the fact that [[ATrekkiesTale the original MarySue]] was a Star Trek fanfic.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: "The Defector" was supposed to open with another Sherlock Holmes pastiche, but legal issues forced the writers to retool it into a holodeck simulation of ''HenryV''. This doubles as foreshadowing: Jarok, like King Henry, is forced to go undercover as a 'commoner' in this episode.

** Eric Pierpoint had guest roles in all four spinoffs: a shape-shifter who attempted to try it on with Picard (yeesh), Cpn. Sanders in "For the Uniform" ([=DS9=]), the Klingon answer to Judas Iscariot in "Barge of the Dead" (VOY), a big game hunter in "Rogue Planet" (ENT), and a Section 31 honcho in the Terra Prime arc (also ENT). He is probably best known for his role as Det. Francisco in the cult show ''Series/AlienNation''.

** Marc Alaimo appeared as a minor RubberForeheadAlien in Season 1's "Lonely Among Us," Romulan Commander Tebok later that season in "The Neutral Zone," Cardassian Gul Macet in Season 4's "The Wounded", and a 19th century gambler in Season 5's "Time's Arrow" before taking on the role of ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'''s Gul Dukat. ** Hey, that Ferengi Dr. Farek in "Menage a Troi" sure sounds a lot like [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Neelix]]... At one point on ''Voyager'' ("False Profits"), Neelix is forced to get makeup and surgery so that he looks like the Grand Nagus of the Ferengi, and the actor pulls it off again with great aplomb. Said actor would go on to be one of the 'first' Ferengi ever, in the [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise ENT]] episode "Acquisition".

** W. Morgan Sheppard is one of those names that crops up in fantasy TV, appearing in everything from Trek and ''Babylon 5'' to ''Doctor Who''. He is first seen here in "The Schizoid Man" as Data's 'uncle'. You can also spot him as a Klingon in ''[[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry Star Trek VI]]'' and the Ahab-like alien in VOY's "Bliss". Most recently he played a Vulcan science minister who Spock told to get stuffed (figuratively) in the Abrams movie.
