* {{Ambadassador}}: S'taass, the Gorn ambassador for the Klingon Empire during the "Second Wave" mission. [[spoiler:When [=DS9=] is boarded by the Dominion his first reaction is to leap over the table and tear a Jem'Hadar apart with his claws! His second reaction is taking up the hobby of running up to Jem'Hadar and pummeling them to death with his bare hands and biting their throats out!]]

* MyNameIsNotDurwood: A fairly common misspelling of "Ferasan" is "Ferasian". This may be due to their CaptainErsatz status which causes [[TheyJustDidntCare players to not care about them as much.]]

* LargeHam: Colonel Hakeev of the Tal Shiar. To such a degree that [[{{Narm}} he can be hard to take entirely seriously]]. For instance at Khitomer: "I don't care if you have a hundred Klingon ships. You will NOT stop me." And then there is his BigNo at the end of the Coliseum episode. Coming at the end of a rather hammy monologue as it does. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhzDY9r8VvE]] TropesAreNotBad, though, as his hamminess is about the only thing adding some levity to what is otherwise [[DarkerAndEdgier a VERY grimdark storyline]] compared to the other two factions'.

**Noye. After his [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn and vendetta against the player character, he brings the hamminess up to eleven]]. Like Hakeev, [[spoiler: Supervillain!]]Noye serves as some necessary comic relief.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: At the Battle of Procyon V, the future Federation is under attack by a grand coalition of time-traveling enemies. [[spoiler: Terran Empire forces from the Mirror Universe]] bug out after the player thwarts a boarding attempt on the ''Enterprise-J'' personally led by [[spoiler: Admiral Leeta]] and beats that leader into the ground.

** Mentioning the word 'Gorn' in zone chat is just begging for a veritable flood of puns based on the word.

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: In the mission "The Doomsday Weapon", the Klingon Captain muses as to why K'Valk betrayed her. In the very next breath, she proclaims that he ''did'' try to explain but, because of Klingon honor, she blew him off because he was a traitor.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Each playable faction has it's own color scheme (carried over from the TV series and movies), which extends to the colors on the walls, lighting, map sections, etc. The Federation is blue/white, Klingons are red, Romulans are green.

The Borg are back, deadlier than ever before, and the galaxy is once more on the edge of war. TheFederation and the [[TheEmpire Klingon Empire]] are at each other's throats again, and the tattered remains of the Romulan Star Empire post "Countdown" may be scattered, but they remain a credible military threat to both, and to the fledgling Romulan Republic. That's only compounded with a newly democratic Cardassia facing a civil war against [[TheRemnant True Way rebels]] helped by Dominion renegades, and the Undine (formerly Species 8472) infiltrating everyone.

In other words, the 25th century ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe has become a CrapsackWorld ([[CrapsackOnlyByComparison relatively speaking]]), and it's up to the player(s) to find a way to make it right.

** Gaul's flagship in Delta Rising is identified as the VSW ''Vozro''z. VSW most likely stands for Vaadwaur Supremacy Warship.

* FromNobodyToNightmare: The Tuterians used to be a relatively obscure and peaceful Delta Quadrant species. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Thanks to the the Alliance]], they've since become the omnicidal [[spoiler:Sphere Builders]].



* MeaningfulName: The R.R.W. Lleiset, to anyone who knows Rhihannsu. ''[[spoiler: Romulan Republic Warbird Freedom]].''
* MeaningfulRename: Sort of. [[spoiler:While they didn't "choose" to rename themselves, the proper name for the Undine makes sense [[CaptainObvious given that they come from "fluidic" space]], and nearly all references to "8472" in-game are replaced with the new name.]]

* MissingTrailerScene: The game suffers from this occasionally, as some content seen in trailers for the various seasons is either changed or outright removed from the actual version, such as a scene from the season 6 trailer showing players in EV suits fighting Tholians onboard a damaged starship.



** [[spoiler:Undine seem to be good at this, given how the ''entire Klingon Empire'' is at war with the Federation because of them.]]
** At least two missions ([[spoiler:"Diplomatic Orders" and "Divide et Impera"]]) have you escorting someone who turns out to be an [[spoiler:Undine]] imposter.

* SacrificialPlanet: Episode "Klingon War", mission "The Doomsday Device", which is for all intents and purposes an expanded repeat of the TOS episode set 150 years later. Another planet killer half-destroys a small moon ahead of it before the player attacks to prevent Ambassador B'vat from siccing it on the Federation.

** You'll be hard pressed to find any area of space outside of Earth that isn't engulfed by millions of miles of stellar gasses, dusts, and nebulae painting the backdrop, and AsteroidThicket is in full effect here. Later maps are much better about this. Mainly because a lot of people complained. A good example is the revamped ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' exterior which ditched the nebula for black space, with a hint of the purple denorios belt that was sometimes seen in the series and a lens flare sun representing the Bajoran star.
