* LesYay: Akane to Yukari, big time. At one point, Akane even says "if you're asking me to do that...I'll strip!" (Yukari asked Akane to go swimming, Akane didn't have her swimsuit handy, and she wasn't going to let that stop her.)

* RefugeInAudacity: Mostly the premise, although a few bits such as the chase scene in the first episode probably qualify as well.

* TranslationConvention: If you think about it, either the ''Atlantis'' crew speaks sufficiently fluent Japanese or Yukari and Akane speak sufficiently fluent English.

* LatexSpacesuit: Skintight spacesuits are one of the technological advancements the SSA is using as part of its attempt to develop economical manned space travel (since they're a lot lighter than conventional space suits). Amusingly enough, the reactions of the characters themselves to the spacesuits seem a lot more scandalized than the series visuals would seem to warrant.
** There is to add that there is nothing that would prevent such a space-suit to be actually used for short-time missions. Short-time, because of the missing plumbing...
*** The ironic thing is that in the light novels they apparently had said plumbing. To a certain degree.
*** NASA keeps wanting to develop these, but can't seem to get funding. Apparently better spacesuits aren't sexy enough -- they should get more female astronauts, I guess.

* MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness: Despite the premise, this is some of the hardest sci-fi out there. Even the skintight spacesuits are projected to become reality in about a decade's time.

2008.



* LovableTraitor: Director Nasuda. He may be funny, but he has a bad habit of keeping secrets from the girls.



* DidNotDoTheResearch: Despite the technical advice from JAXA and the generally high level of sci-fi hardness, this does crop up a few times. One case may have been deliberate due to a desire to keep a scene from the original novels though.
* GeniusBonus: Jokes about Reverse Polish Notation and Hohmann Transfer Orbits.
