* DumbDinos: The dinosaurs in "Wildcat" are so stupid that they are incredibly difficult to kill, staying active enough to fight even after one is literally gutted by gunfire. The carnivores also do not recognize carrion as food, only attacking live prey.

* PortalNetwork: In ''The Enemy Stars'' (1958), mankind has maintained a program to deploy a portal network for centuries -- while civilizations rose and fell on Earth -- using STL ships to deliver portals to other solar systems. [[spoiler:Aliens have been doing the same thing.]]

Sometimes the men wore peaked caps and comets, sometimes steel helmets, sometimes decorous gray cowls, eventually blue berets with winged stars; but always they watched the ships, and more and more often as the decades passed they brought their craft to new harbors.\\
