** In "Redemption: Part II", when the Enterprise crew first encounters Sela, Dr. Crusher initially believed she was Tasha Yar's clone to try to undermine Starfleet. In ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'', Picard learns the Romulans had created a clone of ''him'' meant to KillAndReplace him, hoping to undermine Starfleet.

* ClicheStorm: Invoked in the episode "The Royale", where Riker, Worf, and Data get trapped in the simulation of a terribly-written crime novel set in the titular hotel-casino. Periodically, their attempts to escape are interrupted by scenes from the book, causing the [=NPCs=] of the simulation to start reciting the hammiest possible lines to each other (complete with a jazzy soundtrack spontaneously starting up to accompany them), all while the crew looks on in bewilderment. After these brief interactions, the music stops and the [=NPCs=] return to normal as if nothing had happened.

*** However, in 2016, Wil has confirmed that [[DiscreditedMeme he insta-bans people that tweet "Shut up, Wesley!" to him on Twitter, even if it's in jest]].

Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: Though Geordi is by no means a stupid man, he does miss a rather obvious solution in "The Next Phase". When he's rendered intangible but discovers he leaves detectable particles when interacting with solid matter, he starts sticking his hand through panels that Data is decontaminating in an effort to be noticed. When Data failed to realizes this wasn't random, Geordi just gives up in frustration rather than trying to draw letters or some other pattern that would make it obvious the contamination had a sentient source.

** "Who Watches The Watchers": Religion is a dangerous tool that inspires hero worship, violence among primitive societies, and can decay societal advancement. Whether or not you agree with that, the episode only functions because that is its anvil.

** "Where Silence Has Lease". Once again Picard is happy to set off the auto destruct but it takes Pulaski (of all people) to remind him what an overreaction that may be. Rather than 50% of the crew being killed, Picard will merrily slaughter 100%

Rather than 50% of the crew being killed, Picard will merrily slaughter 100% 100%. (This is also one of those episodes that ignores the fact that there are civilians -- including ''children'' -- on board the ship.)

* UnfortunateImplications: The much-loathed episode "Code of Honor" features a race of savage black people. How much of this was due to an honest miscommunication between the director and the script-writer is debatable, but either way, director [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Russ_Mayberry Russ Mayberry]] was fired mid-filming for racist behavior and being abrasive with the actors. ''Trek'' reviewer Website/SFDebris discussed this at length in [[http://sfdebris.com/videos/startrek/t104.php his review of the episode]].

** The relationship between Q and Picard. It would be very difficult to explain away a lot of Q's behavior without attributing it to a crush he's harboring for Captain Picard. Q makes it a point to pester Picard with numerous challenges and snarks at the man every chance he gets, ostensibly making him Picard's nemesis. However the level of chemistry and familiarity that Q has with Picard makes the tests seem like an excuse to flirt. This is '''not helped''' by Q's violation of Picard's personal space. Additionally, Q's punishments directed towards Picard's rejections often come off as the reaction of a scorned lover. In "Qpid", Q makes the observation that the feminine wiles of women are a weakness that Picard is vulnerable to; showcased by how embarrassing his interactions with Vash were around his crew. Q muses that had he known this earlier he would have shown up as a woman to exploit Picard's weakness (as an EnergyBeing Q isn't a he or a she, because he lacks a biological gender). Also take a gander at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXefQxyMj_A this scene]] from "Tapestry" shown out of context. [[note]]In context Q has saved Picard's life from a fatal injury received during a mission, and has taken him back in time to fix any mistakes he regrets from his past. One of the changes Picard makes is the decision to pursue a romantic affair with a female friend of his he knew right before his career started. After having sex with her Picard wakes up the following morning to the sensation of a hand touching his face, but when he turns around Q has taken her place. Despite a brief jolt, Picard stays in bed and proceeds to have a quite civil chat with Q while lying naked under the covers.[[/note]] Without context one would think the chat they have is about a relationship ''between them''.

For what it's worth, [[WordOfGod John De Lancie and Ronald D. Moore were of the opinion]] that Q was in love with Picard, but it never really goes beyond subtext.
