** Arguably, Data would be the element that prevents traged in this situation, as he likely knows all the native languages for every crewmember and can thus translate until the program is working again.

* Picard speaks Frainc-Comtou, an already distinct dialect of French that is likely to pick up influcences from its Swiss and Alsatian neighbours by the 24th century.

Q wants humanity to survive, as he can see how humanity has grown from savage race to something much better over a short time. Since the continuum has a trial against humanity, Q chose to "use" Picard and his crew to prove that humanity was worthy of life in space. Q acting like an antagonist is simply because he knows how to motivate the captain.
** Watch 'All good things...' again. Q's final conversation with Picard is essentially Picard going 'The whole of these past SEVEN YEARS were the trial, and you were helping us along. Thank you.' with Q responding 'Yeah, but only because I thought you deserved the help. Now go explore.' Your WMG is almost made explicit truth!
** Not "almost". Q specifically says that the Continuum had sentanced humanity to death. It was only at his demand that Picard was put in the position to stop the paradox and save the species, proving our fitness for survival. He all but admits that he is a guardian angel for our planet. albiet a {{Jerkass}} one.

* When affected by a subliminal message from a himself in a previous time loop (long story), Data demonstrates he is capable of tracking every card in a deck and shuffling them in such a way to producing any hands he wants. Data claims to be surprised by this. How he could have not known he could do this is not explained.

Initially, the Queens acted as a mere figurehead for the Collective, with no personality aside from what the Collective needed to express. Then, Hugh comes along and spreads individuality throughout the Collective. This effects the Queen, who uses her newfound personality to impose ''her'' control over the Collective, rather than the other way around. This lead to a radical restructuring of Borg activities, resulting in the Borg's ''in-universe'' VillainDecay.

After being beamed into space in the episode ''Datalore'', Lore was never seen again. Data continued to live on for centuries until long after the extinction of the human race and probably a few other species, too. He created an entire race of androids but was ultimately unable to recapture the essence of a world where the former extinct species had existed, leaving him disillusioned about this whole thing. This whole thing ends with a temporal jump which places him conveniently within reach of a Pakled trading ship (the ?fortunate encounter? Lore mentioned in "Brothers"). Data resigns himself to the unchangeability of fate (as is his habit) and ?becomes? his own brother. This also explains why Soong couldn't tell that the "Data" he was giving an emotion chip to in ''Brothers'' was Lore in disguise: if it had been the real Lore from ''Datalore'', wouldn't there already be an emotion chip ''in'' there?

** There has also been a fan theory tossed around that states that B4, himself, is Lor; and that someone dumbed him down prior to ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''. I don't think this is very likely personally, but it ''would'' explain away a few of the weirder inconsistencies.

* It was called the Cardassian Union, perhaps the Union was a form of alliance between them all, wherein the Cardassian were still the dominant power. The Union fell apart due to the pressures of the border war. A tense peace was made with the Tzenkethi and Talarians, however the Cardassians continued to fight until the Peace Treaty was signed.
