I do believe the TNG episode "The Offspring" and the DS9 episode "The Begotten" tell the same story in different ways, and they're both great episodes. (And I admit I always cry when Lal and Data are saying goodbye because FEELS!)

Yes and yes and I mean YES!

Re: Reoccurring Trek Stories

How about holodeck episodes?

Recurring themes in holodeck episodes:
1. Characters get trapped in the holodeck, and can't end the program or physically exit the compartment
2. The safety protocols are overridden, or offline
3. Holographic characters become sentient, or self-aware

The holodeck became a crutch for the writing staffs of TNG and the spinoffs, and was used in far too many episodes.

Re: Reoccurring Trek Stories

Doubles/copies of the main characters - how often has that been done

TOS did it excessively with Kirk, TNG did it too on several occasions.
I don´t know that much about DS9 and VOY, but at least they used that theme a lot less in ENT.

There are at least two episodes of Voyager where we get entire double Voyagers with full duplicate crews.

This is why Harry Kim and Naomi Wildman in the later episodes are not the originals for "our" ship.

Re: Reoccurring Trek Stories

I have a few.

-One person on the crew feels like an outsider or is deemed somehow as "different" (Spock, Data, Odo, EMH, T'Pol) and the theme appears throughout the show repeatedly.

-Person fakes their identity to try and deceive the crew of a ship. Ship's captain or a crewmember finds out.

-Crewmember or Captain becomes possessed by another entity of some unknown species.

-Captain refuses to go to sickbay even though it's necessary.

-Captain or crewmember bends or breaks the Prime Directive in order to do good.

-There is a debate over whether something/someone is actually a sentient being with rights.
