* BaseBreaker: The Borg Queen, also goes for her appearances on ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Some find her an interesting addition to the Borg. Others believe her creation was a huge mistake, going against everything the Borg embody.

** 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.

* AwardSnub: This movie lost the Academy Award for Best Makeup to the Eddie Murphy remake of ''TheNuttyProfessor''. Though the Academy [[IncrediblyLamePun made up]] for it years later by giving the award to the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek''.

** Anyone who has watched ''Star Trek: First Contact'' and the team ''Film/XMen'' films before ''Series/ChildrenOfDune'' finds it amusing that the Borg Queen is the grandmother of Professor X. (Creator/JamesMcAvoy plays the younger version of Creator/PatrickStewart's 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}}''.

* HilariousInHindsight: Picard gets accused of acting like Captain Ahab. Guess what role Stewart would play two years later?
** As he first meets Riker, Cochrane asks Troi "Is he a friend of yours?", to which Troi answers "Yes.". He also asks "Husband?", to which Troi says "No.", making him say "Good!". In ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'', Troi and Riker finally marry.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Destroying the ''Enterprise''-E. Its predecessor had been destroyed in the previous film and the characters even {{Lampshaded}} how short the ship's lifespan had been. Of course they weren't going to get rid of it right away.
* MemeticMutation: "The line must be drawn HEEYAH!"

* {{Visual Effects of Awesome}}: Many examples, including the battle at the start, the assembly of the Borg Queen, and the spacewalk on the hull of the Enterprise. Unfortunately the producers ditched ILM starting with the next film, meaning that the visual effects in this film wouldn't be surpassed until they were called back for ''[[Film/StarTrek Star Trek XI]]''.

** Plus Cochran blasting Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" across the base as the Phoenix lifts off.

Added DiffLines:

** Cochrane's TitleDrop can cross back into this, particularly since he's the "creator" of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe (and an awful lot like a thinly-fictionalized version of the ''real'' creator), and probably the only character entitled to do it!

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the original screenplay, Picard tells Lily her phaser was set to minimum, and would have just given him a bad rash. This original line is still found in the {{Novelization}}.
