** A minor example in ''Sanctuary''. Jake tells Nog that a Dabo girl is studying entomology, and explains that this is the "study of bugs." Nog responds "You mean she wants to be a chef." In the 21st century the taboo against eating insects, particularly grasshoppers and crickets, is starting to fade, and major food companies are looking to them as a more efficient source of protein than livestock.

** A minor example in ''Sanctuary''. Jake tells Nog that a Dabo girl is studying entomology, and explains that this is the "study of bugs." Nog responds "You mean she wants to be a chef." This seems to be an example of the Ferengi as a bizarre alien culture. In the 21st century the taboo against eating insects, particularly grasshoppers and crickets, is starting to fade, and major food companies are looking to them as a more efficient source of protein than livestock.

** Were Li Nalas' exploits really distorted by retelling? He hated his fame so much it's not hard to imagine him making up the "I shot an unarmed Cardassian in his underwear" story.

Even after Sisko convinced him of his importance as a symbol he might have let Sisko continue to believe he was a fraud so that he had someone to talk to who saw him as just a man.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: JMS pitched the entire ''Babylon 5'' series bible to {{Creator/Paramount}}. They turned him down, and then used a copy of it a year later as the basis for creating [=DS9=]. Basically JMS was given a choice: make a case out of the fact that Paramount blatantly stole from him, or do his own show on {{Creator/PTEN}}. He couldn't do both. He chose to do the show, and we got ''Babylon 5'', but he had to be quiet about it and leave out the major plot elements that had already been incorporated into [=DS9=].

** Benjamin Sisko, who holds the respect of the Maquis, Klingons, Founders and the Jem'Hadar as being a WorthyOpponent and as such, demonstrates he can even make them stand down simply by showing up in some episodes. He also [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punched Q to the ground]]. According to SFDebris, if Sisko had been in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', the movie would've only been five minutes long.
