Dr. Tolian Soran (Malcolm McDowell)

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Gets blown up by his own rocket when it tries to launch with the locking clamps engaged.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Guinan. Being the same race, both experiencing the Nexus, they essentially share a backstory. Soran is what happens when those mystical powers are used for evil instead.
  • Straw Nihilist: After his homeworld's destruction, he's haunted by the inevitability of death, to the point that he no longer cares who suffers from his plan to return to the Nexus.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: The Enterprise crew rescue him after the attack on the Amargosa station, and he repays them by nearly getting them killed. Twice.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: If what he said to Picard was true, he claims he wouldn't have hurt a fly before his world was destroyed.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He lost his homeworld and family to the Borg, and then he lost his ideal fantasy in the Nexus when he was beamed aboard the Enterprise-B. He's now willing to destroy entire solar systems as part of The Plan to return to the Nexus.

Captain John Harriman (Alan Ruck)

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When it's clear that he's in way over his head, he asks Kirk for advice.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He makes it quite clear that he is a huge fan of Kirk.
  • Ensign Newbie: How this dweeb got command of the Enterprise-B is anyone's guess.
