** In [[http://www.agonybooth.com/star-trek-enterprise-a-night-in-sickbay-part-1-5987 their recap]] of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'''s "A Night in Sickbay", Website/TheAgonyBooth thought this film hurt the series overall by depicting Humans as {{Naive Newcomer}}s and Vulcans as their "big brothers".
-->"TOS showed humans and alien races venturing into the unknown as equals, while ''Enterprise'', on the other hand, was less about 'where no man has gone before' and more about 'where everybody ''besides'' mankind has gone before'."

* FranchiseOriginalSin: Of a sort - while the introduction of the Borg Queen and the general streamlining of the Borg was ''blisteringly'' effective within the movie itself, there's no denying that a lot of it ''radically'' alters the entire concept of the Borg and nullifies or modifies some of the ways in which they were previously intimidating and effective on ''TNG''. Many later ''Trek'' writers, particularly on ''Voyager'', would struggle with the legacy of this movie's changes in ways that ultimately made the Borg suffer from severe VillainDecay.

** The franchise TitleDrop that the crew is "on some kind of star trek." In the commentary, Moore and Braga reveal that the studio insisted on it, and they ''really'' didn't want to do it. They also considered Worf's "Assimilate This!" one-liner to be the cheesiest line of the movie.

** Picard's bellowing the BigNo and then smashing his ship models can be particularly hilarious, to the point it became a meme as mentioned above.

** 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 Creator/DavidLynch's film version of ''Film/{{Dune}}''.

* 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.
