These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.

The Fan Fic
Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Many, but Kirk's rallying of Starfleet after the Battle of Sector 001 is perhaps the most magnificent.
Luke Skywalker's escape from and destruction of the Orion Syndicate also scores pretty high on the list.
Artoo whistled and beeped a long explanation that involved the guard, his mother, a randy Gammorean and duct tape.
Evil Is Sexy: Mara thinks this of Darth Nemesis and is therefore disappointed when he is redeemed.
Magnificent Bastard: Khan Noonien Singh pulls this off to a T. He even fools Grand Admiral Thrawn!
Moral Event Horizon: Arguably, the Federation Shadowfleet's destruction of Remus. Darth Nemesis's retaliatory destruction of the Klingon homeworld Qo'noS, though still evil, is more acceptable because Nemesis thought that the Klingons were responsible for what happened to Remus.
The TV Series
Fan-Preferred Couple: A number of people seem to think that the show would be better if Julia were the protagonist and with Roman rather than Emery. The fact that their names are deliberately similar to Romeo and Juliet doesn't help.
Idiot Ball: Why doesn't Roman, who's usually Genre Savvy when it comes to the Trags, ask who "Prisoner #337" is? Even if he took Vega at her word, the prisoner's name was unnecessarily hidden for dramatic plot reasons.
Yes, let one teenager drive a truck with a bomb stashed inside it to meet a government official in a dark, relatively abandoned area. No, the Trags couldn't possibly have a backup plan, and the three Atrians in on the plot who are usually up to savvy about what the Trags can do don't think of this and strongly suggest getting Gloria to send an armed escort as quickly as possible to meet the Mardi Gras float.
What was the point of needing the Iksen's key if the Suvek could be set off remotely in any case?
