* HeroicWillpower: When the Manraloth inadvertently inflict mind-rape on everyone in the area in their misguided attempts to "help" the lower species, only two people resist: Guinan, whose connection to the Nexus allows her to shrug it off, and Tasha Yar, who has no such advantage and just decides not to give in.

* HarmfulTo Minors: 12-year old Jason Garrett and his friend Pahl don't have a very nice time at all, what with all the evil possessing spirits and violent gunmen and loved ones being essentially murdered in front of them.

* LiteralMetaphor: In ''The Buried Age'', Picard recalls an incident where a temporal anomaly had "quite literally blown the ''Stargazer'' into the middle of the next week". (Apparently the resulting temporal discontinuity almost tore the ship apart.)

* BluntMetaphorsTrauma: Pre-TNG Data and Metaphors. After a minute of conversation with him, Picard feels like some of what's left of his hair is probably falling out from exasperation.

** In Picard and Ariel's discussion on precursor species, the entity from the animated series episode "Beyond the Farthest Star" gets brought up. Apparently it's still around, and still stuck on the dead star Kirk left it on, but Starfleet is wisely staying the hell away from it. The mind-switching machines from "Turnabout Intruder" get brought up. They were around in the Manraloth days, but were used for simple body-tourism, rather than psychotic revenge plots on exes.
** When the Organians come up, the ones Archer and co ran into in "Contagion" get a nod, with their different characterization given the justification that they're rebellious spirits about whom the other Organians prefer to not speak of.
** In Data's conversation with Ariel, we see things from his viewpoint, and as mentioned many times over TNG, his attention is never entirely focused on her alone because his android brain is focused on lots of ''other'' things as well.



* DamnedByFaintPraise: Ariel thanks Coray for all her species have done assisting Picard's archaeological expedition to free her. Cobray takes it as an insult, since she knows all her species have done is obstruct and manipulate out of selfish greed.

* NoSocialSkills: Part of Data's problem gelling with other Starfleet personel is that he doesn't have any social skills, often interrupting any conversation he manages to be a part of to ask any question that flits into his mind, derailing the conversation then and there.



* {{Parental Abandonment}}: John Harriman has issues with his father, as does Will Riker. Rachel Garrett and Kyle Riker are essentially heroes who are on the guilty side of this.
