Tropes cannot be subverted "heavily." This is cruft.
* EveryoneIsRelated: Heavily subverted. Other than a few marriages resulting later on, almost nobody is blood-related ([[BizarreAlienBiology or for that matter, Ink-related]]) to anyone else (important)! Yet, while blood relations are severely lacking among major cast members, everyone is "connected" in more abstract ways.

trope repair shop: Spoiled Sweet clean-up: misuse and ZCE are being removed
* ShootTheShaggyDog: Think the story [[CerebusSyndrome can't get any darker]]? By the ''Final Hope'' timeline, [[spoiler: Astrabolo]] [[HumanPopsicle has returned]]. The PTG (UN substitute) has now become the PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny, with [[spoiler: Astrabolo]] as TheCaligula. [[spoiler: The original Voyagers]] are dead. All the characters we loved are dead or sent into hibernation/muellexic freeze. If [[spoiler: Astrabolo]] gets [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough desperate enough]], he may release [[OmnicidalManiac Melchar]] ([[SealedEvilInADuel and Alhox]]) from the Muellex. [[spoiler: Port Metaball]] is a nuclear wasteland. Our new heroes are a black dude whose family was killed in a fire, a girl who [[VideoGameLives has unlimited lives]] if she remains a technical virgin, a monk, a chaplain/mechanic, a [[SpoiledSweet rich girl]] with a RapeAsDrama [[BreakTheCutie motif]], and the grandniece of our favorite WalkingWasteland. They must stop the old evil from assembling a DeathRay that can wipe out an entire city at a time, by finding the hidden blueprints first. Meanwhile, signs point to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

Medieval Japan is now Hollywood Medieval Japan. Bad examples and ZCE are being removed.
** Whixtitout can't decide if it's MedievalJapan, TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, TheNewTens, or a planet-sized HiddenElfVillage (albeit, NeutralNoLonger.)

** Subverted in-universe on Neothode, as the population is so used to being bullied by [[ReligionOfEvil Astrabolo's cult]] that they are [[DyingLikeAnimals too far beyond]] the DespairEventHorizon [[ApatheticCitizens to care about]] whether the weirdness in their environment [[TheMasquerade is covered up or not]].

The Messiah has been disambiguated between Messianic Archetype and All Loving Hero. Bad examples and ZCE are being removed; if you disagree, please readd with sufficient context.
** [[{{Jesus}} Minshus]] (TheMessiah,) Richard Ribando (a BadassPreacher) and Clandish Consto (a JackTheRipoff SerialKiller) all have their fates linked to each other's [[MindScrew by some long-dead ancient guy's dream about a zebra]]!

It needs to be famous for that, Citizen Kane or King Kong famous.
** Perhaps the most egregious example is Cybomec, subverted in that it was only ''a'' Cybomec [[spoiler: the one possessed by Richard Ribando]] that joins, not ''the'' Clandish "Cybomec" Consto that nearly killed everyone. [[spoiler: [[ItWasHisSled He becomes Preamble]] instead.]]

Who?
''Stationery Voyagers'' is an allegorical, [[{{Melodrama}} melodramatic]] dry {{Pastiche}} ScienceFiction serial SpaceOpera book (and hopefully, also eventually [[AnimatedAdaptation TV]]) series in development by Dozerfleet Productions (Yes, ''[[CiemWebcomicSeries that]]'' Dozerfleet!)

Removing the personal political commentary and the natter and shoehorned tropes
* AmericaSavesTheDay: Callously averted, if not outright defied. The MoralGuardians are shown to be [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism horribly ineffectual]] at protecting the public from rabid straw liberals, whose violence makes Occupy Oakland look like ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'' by comparison. Because of this chaos, Antia is rendered utterly useless most of the time. And when the Drismabons attack, Antia is just as dependent on Stationery technology as everyone else on Mantith to fight back. The [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent president]] is so inept, that even ''God'' is convinced to give the Voyagers to another country: [[{{Ruritania}} Bulgadia]]. And that country proves to be ''only slightly'' better at protecting the Voyagers' diplomatic safety.

* BetterByADifferentName: The author has very few issues with anyone who conjectures that the series may have been better as ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'', or ''Franchise/StarTrek'', or ''Film/BladeRunner'', or ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'', or as any of the countless other things it gives a ShoutOut to [[{{Pastiche}} all over]]. ** And the author even agrees that ''Bindaf 3000'' was at least somewhat cooler as the [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astro Megaship]]. * TheBlank: The Voyagers have barely-there, almost non-existent faces. And when wearing their caps, their facial features aren't even depicted at all. Exceptions would be Liquidon and Erasaxo, who are {{FacelessEye}}s.

* BullyingADragon / DoNotTauntCthulhu: Naturally, this happens a lot.

* FurryConfusion: They're living pens and markers; but they keep journals with non-living "dolls." Then again, [[NightmareFuel the alternative]] would have them writing with their own heads [[{{Squick}} using their own blood]].
