  • He may have only been a token Red Shirt and a minor Bit Character but dammit, I LIKED LIEUTENANT HAWK!
    • Pretty much everyone who got hit by a Borg was this. The Enterprise crew has always been portrayed as a "family" of sorts (I keep thinking back to that otherwise generic early episode of TNG where Picard tells an orphaned boy that on this ship no one is alone. So you know that all these people MEAN something to each other, and every one lost is another blow.
  • Data's confession at the end of the film always gets this troper. Just "0.68 seconds". He was so. Damned. Close. To having what he'd always wanted. He didn't betray his crew and captain, of course he didn't, but when he says that this short a time, for an android "is nearly an eternity", you realise that 0.68 seconds was the equivalent of a guy spending a year or two of their life debating whether or not condemning the future to destruction is worth gaining the one thing they've always longed for. And for just one horrific moment, I actually thought he'd do it.
    • Hell that entire fricckin' scene with Data and Picard is equal parts Tear Jerker and Heartwarming. That's the kind of storytelling that only a decade worth of acting together in roles that are virtually a part of you, gets you.
  • It's crazy but... the sequence early in the film, with the en masse attack against the Borg cube and Worf's crew ready to commit suicide in a last ditch attempt to slow it down. And then there's the look of combined disbelief and hope on the crew's faces as they realize which ship just arrived on the battlefield, and suddenly, the whole audience knows it's going to be okay.

  "Sir, there's another starship coming in... it's the Enterprise!"

  • Picard's epic 'hold the line' speech, and his subsequent realization at how his actions were tainted because of his need to hurt the Borg. Picard, a captain known for both his courtesy and calm manner, lashing out verbally and physically and then realizing what he'd become, is one of the most powerful and emotional sights in any medium of Trek.
