(all dialogue examples purely imaginary unless otherwise noted)

Good Cop/Bad Cop - typical Starfleet dressing down of a crewmember, followed by making nice. Example - Picard: "Mr. Worf, your actions were inexcusable! As long as you are a member of this crew, you will obey my orders, is that clear?" Worf: "Yes, sir." Worf turns to go. Picard: "Mr. Worf. <pause> nice work..." (or somesuch)

Identity Affirmation - when a character asserts who they are. This covers many situations, from McCoy saying "I'm a doctor, not a..." to Picard introducing himself to the captain of another vessel: "I am Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise.;quot;

Paradigm Shift - once in a great while, something actually does change in the Star Trek Universe: someone dies, suddenly there are warp speed limitations, etc. We celebrate these occasions with a drink.

Self-referential Star Trek - mention of events or people from past episodes

Same Actor in a Different Occupation - "Directed by Patrick Stewart", etc.

Same Actor in a Different Role - just what it sounds like. Nurse Chapel/Lwaxana Troi for example.

Unacceptable Answer - when a crewmember responds with a line that is more dramatic than practical. Example - Picard: "Geordi, what's going on down there?" Geordi: "Something very strange..."
