- Anvilicious: The episode is an allegory about neglected war veterans (specifically veterans of The Vietnam War, but really applicable to the veterans of any war), and in true Star Trek fashion, it is not subtle about making its point.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Worf shows up in the climactic scene no worse for wear after Roga dumps a bunch of crates on him. Which is pretty funny after he gets seriously hurt after one in "Ethics."
- Jerkass Woobie: Roga Danar mocks Troi mercilessly, even though she's just trying to help, because he doesn't want Troi's (or anybody's) pity. That said, given how badly he was treated by his own government, it's hard not to feel for the guy, and it's no surprise that he has such a bitter, sardonic sense of humor. Of course, once we see him in action, he borders on Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
- Okay, okay, it's a minor thing. Data was busy on the bridge, so it was up to Worf to stop Danar's escape, but man, how cool would Data vs Danar have been?
- Somewhat more major thing, but Danar and his fellow super soldiers are the Angosian equivalent of old Earth's augments, the super soldiers that almost destroyed Earth. No one points out the similarities.
