* AssPull: The Borg Queen having conveniently learned to teleport the Cube from having only [[AwesomenessByAnalysis analyzed]] [[spoiler: Lady Q]] (or at least that's what we're led to believe).
* BaseBreaker: The deaths (or apparent deaths) of [[spoiler:Kathryn Janeway and Montgomery Scott]].
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: In ''Before Dishonor'': [[spoiler: Remember the Doomsday Machine from the Original Series? Well, it's back. And it's on our side. And ''kicking the Borg's [[IncrediblyLamePun collective]] ass.'' [[HopeSpot For about ten minutes, anyways, until the Borg Ass Pull a teleporting trick and EAT the damn thing.]]]]
** Also counts as a ContinuityNod to the older novel ''Vendetta'' which featured [[spoiler: the ''completed'' version of the thing. You read that right. The one in The Doomsday Machine was theorized in ''Vendetta'' to be a ''PROTOTYPE'' that was launched because the war between the creators of the original machine and the Borg was going badly for the good guys. This series outright ''confirms'' the theory established years ago by ''Vendetta''. The final version went into something like Warp 9.999999999999-ad infinitum (Warp 10 was still "unreachable" at the time Peter David wrote the novel[[note]]Your Mileage May Vary if it still is or not, given that the ''Voyager'' episode ''Threshold'' has largely been written out of continuity[[/note]]), with its pilot, linked to the minds of the ship (essentially making the ship a sentient collective- the irony abounds) intending to go straight for the Borg homeworld and devour it before she died of phaser wounds that should have been fatal.]]
** Picard and the ''Enterprise'' hooking up unexpectedly with none other than [[spoiler: [[StarTrekNewFrontier Mackenzie Calhoun and the]] ''[[StarTrekNewFrontier Excalibur]]'']], who then proceeds to declare Picard honorary commodore of his and the other ships as they head out to engage the Borg.
** It should be noted that ''Before Dishonor'', ''Vendetta'', and ''[[spoiler:StarTrekNewFrontier]]'' were all written by PeterDavid.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: As Picard is giving the command for his company of ships to move out:
-->"[[LampshadeHanging Don't forget to say 'engage,']]" [[spoiler: Calhoun]] cautioned. "[[{{Fanservice}} It's just not the same if you don't say 'engage'.]]"
-->"Make it so."
-->"Damn you, Picard, you tricky bastard," said [[spoiler: Calhoun]].
** Jellico's reaction to [[spoiler:Picard's]] "promotion":
-->"Did I miss a memo? Who promoted him?"\\
[[spoiler:"Mackenzie Calhoun."]]\\
"Oh. Well, figures."
** "[[RunningGag Did you see the giftshop?]]"
** Starfleet admirals Jellico and Nechayev speculating on the fate of humanity should the Borg destroy Earth:
-->"[[TemptingFate At least there's nothing for them to assimilate on]] [[PlutoIsExpendable Pluto]]," said Nechayev after a moment. "The only planet in the system that doesn't have some fool colonists trying to turn hell into paradise."
-->Jellico looked up in surprise. "Planet? You mean dwarf planet."
-->"No. Planet. They changed it back again."
-->Jellico moaned. "Not again. This makes, what, the tenth time in the last three centuries? Can't they make up their damned minds?"
*** [[PlutoIsExpendable Leading to...]]
-->'''Jellico:''' Well, that settles ''that'' debate.
** ''All'' of ''Q&A''.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: For the hope of future humanity, ''Losing the Peace'' places Geordi La Forge's Zefram Cochrane high school in ''Mogadishu, Somalia.''
** Picard and Crusher ''finally'' getting their act together after nearly two decades (at the very least) of UnresolvedSexualTension.
* NightmareFuel: The [[OmnicidalManiac new]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge and]] [[KillAllHumans improved]] [[AxCrazy Borg]].
-->''We are the Borg. You will be'' '''annihilated.''' ''Your biological and technological distinctiveness have become irrelevant. Resistance is futile...'' '''but welcome.'''
