* HarsherInHindsight: Picard spends the movie struggling with his shell shock from being assimilated by the Borg. Years later, Creator/PatrickStewart revealed that his father suffered from PTSD after his service in World War II, which wasn't understood at the time and went untreated, causing him to become abusive towards his family.

** The stardate given in the opening scene puts the film during an episode of ''Deep Space Nine'' where Sisko was away in the Gamma Quadrant. This has caused fans of his MemeticBadass status to insist the Borg are actually ''afraid'' of him, and deliberately waited until he wouldn't be around to stop them.

** The scene where the crew depart via the escape pods would have looked more dramatic, if the escape pods didn't look like tiny pianos.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Can Picard really hear the Borg despite having no implants, or is he just imagining it and his actions are based on his knowledge of them, not a direct connection? This makes him hearing Data unintentionally funny, since it's as if Picard ''just remembered'' that he had been captured after setting the ship to self destruct with him on board.

** Anyone who has watched ''Star Trek: First Contact'' and the team ''[[Film/XMenFilmSeries X-Men]]'' films before ''Series/ChildrenOfDune'' finds it amusing that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnm5wdGMevU the Borg Queen is the grandmother of Professor X.]] (Creator/JamesMcAvoy plays the younger version of Creator/PatrickStewart's [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesProfessorCharlesXavier Charles Xavier]].) By virtue of being a Kwisatz Haderach (a being who can access the genetic memories of its female and male ancestors), Leto Atreides II ([=McAvoy=]) has intimate knowledge of the Lady Jessica (Alice Krige) that he finds very uncomfortable, which mirrors Picard's distress that the Borg Queen knows everything about him when he was assimilated into her collective. Stewart also appeared in ''Film/{{Dune}}''.

* EvilIsSexy: The Borg Queen is horrifying and disgusting, but manages to be strangely sexy. Which makes it even ''worse.'' Creator/RogerEbert commented in his review, "I also admired...the peculiar makeup work creating the Borg Queen, who looks like no notion of sexy I have ever heard of, but inspires me to keep an open mind."
