* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The Guild are the ruling class of the planet who live in spectacular structures above the clouds and jealously preserve their advanced technology for their own use alone.

If the ship takes too much damage, the engineers yank a few levers, tear the engine free and let everyone else aboard crash and burn. Sometimes the Guild recalls engines out of ''[[KickTheDog spite]].''

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: The first half of the anime concerns Claus and Lavie (and later, the entire crew of the Silvana) trying to keep Alvis out of the clutches of the Guild. Why they're hunting her isn't revealed until the last episode. [[spoiler: Turns out she's a living "ignition key" for the eponymous space ship.]]

* BizarreWorldShapes [[spoiler: Prester is shaped like an hourglass, which also happens to be the Guild's emblem. It appears that it's also a hollow world and the events take place inside it - presumably "gravity" is produced by the hourglass spinning rapidly.]]
