** In "Justice", Worf tells Riker rather emphatically how he could only ever have a Klingon woman as a LoveInterest. Then [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]] happened.

* NightmareFuel: Has [[NightmareFuel/StarTrekTheNextGeneration its own page]].



* ReplacementScrappy: Dr. Pulaski in season 2 for Dr. Crusher (Crusher was PutOnABus to take a position as head of Starfleet Medical). Disliked not so much for the fact that she was not Dr. Crusher as for her [[DrJerk abrasive, unsympathetic and arrogant personality]] despite characters [[CreatorsPet regularly claiming otherwise]]. She did have her moments, though.

** Data's [[CainAndAbel brother]] [[PsychoPrototype Lore]] is a thoroughly unsympathetic android who kills his creator, [[BigBrotherBully reprograms his brother to follow his every command]], and threatens to set teenage Wesley on fire. He summoned the Crystalline Entity to his creator's colony when the other colonists petitioned Soong to deactivate him out of fear that he would turn on them, and since then, he's been on quest to wipe out all organic life from the universe. If he ever shows affection, it's just to manipulate Data into collaborating. He also tried to make the Borg an even greater threat to TheFederation than they already were. Given everything else we saw of his true nature, it's obvious that he mostly did it for his own sick amusement.

* UnderminedByReality: Even worse than the original series. The series follows Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future: Earth has embraced enlightened beliefs and has "outgrown" things like greed, grief, conflict and the need for money and things like contemporary 1980s culture was seen as barbaric at best. This is at odds with Gene's rather shady business ethics and the show's writers participated in a writer's strike for an increase in pay, However, it should be said that most of the writers didn't share Gene's vision, often frustrated that their scripts were often rejected or changed for the worse and they began abandoning the his vision as Gene involvement in the series decreased.

** It has been [[http://www.stardestroyer.net/Empire/Database/Query-ST.php?EpName=Face%20of%20the%20Enemy pointed out]] on Website/StarDestroyerDotNet that there are some interesting parallels between Deseve from" [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E13FaceOfTheEnemy Face of the Enemy]]" and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Walker_Lindh John Walker Lindh]].

** Data [[TinMan does have emotions]], his programming just bypasses them deliberately. This is the cause of his ''almost'' emotional moments throughout the series, the times where he states a want to do things (like become more human, serve in Starfleet, paint), expresses friendship for Geordi and the others, and lies about trying to kill Kivas Fajo. The emotion chip just removes the overwrite and allows Data to experience full emotion.

The emotion chip just removes the overwrite and allows Data to experience full emotion. Given that his predecessors turned out to be incapable of growth beyond his most basic programming (B-4), and then turned out to become sociopathic when given free reign over their emotions (Lore), [[ItMakesSenseInContext there is a certain progression in Soong designing Data to be capable of limited emotion, but with an inhibitor in place to supress its excesses]].

** It's broadly agreed that the first bona-fide unquestioned 10/10 classic episode for the series was season 2's [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS2E9TheMeasureOfAMan 'The Measure of a Man']].

** "The High Ground" gives us Alexana Devos, whose dialogue frequently consists of ham-fisted, pithy propaganda about the evils of terrorism.
