* ShoutOut: Several, mostly to ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'', such as Rainbow Dash's callsign (Starbuck), the Everfree Forest Cloudbase, which superficially resembles a squared off Cylon Basestar, and the use of the word "[[UnusualEuphemism frak]]".

* CruelMercy: By WordOfGod what happened to the people running the lab that Twilight came from.
** It's less CruelMercy and more an indirectly-caused FateWorseThanDeath. Not they they didn't deserve it, in any case.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Possibly accidental, but there is an achievement in "SinsOfASolarEmpire" called Space Ponies, which you get via a random event, namely discovering one of your planets has, well, space ponies.

* {{Expy}}: Fluttershy runs into an old friend who acts very much like [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy Weapons Guy]].

* DisproportionateRetribution: The Trade Order's Investigation Directorate. Their response to the actions of the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Horizon]] [[CompleteMonster Corporation]] was to hire a [[MoreDakka Marza-class dreadnought]] to blow up the asteroid their facility had been built on, and then ban the rest of the Traders from doing business with them. Not even to buy ''food''.

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: How the Traders dealt with the [[CompleteMonster Horizon Corporation]]. Along with their lab (and the asteroid it was on) being blown to smithereens, the entire organization was essentially ''erased'': all of Horizon's money and resources were seized, and ''everyone'' who worked for them was either killed or arrested. Moreover, the Traders were ''completely'' banned from doing business with Horizon's employees, via the Universal Trade Sanction--the bastards can't even buy '''food.''' And that's not all: the UTC was handed down by the Traders as a whole, so the various members also laid down their own punishments ''in addition'' to all of the above. Literally ''nothing'' is left of Horizon by the time the story starts.

* TranshumanTreachery: A predecessor to the Trade Order tried to do this, [[FinalSolution in a very complete way]]. They're the reason why [[NoTranshumanismAllowed Transhumanism isn't allowed]]. (See the CompleteMonster entry for details.)

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Averted. ''Hard''. The author goes out of his way to make it clear that space is ''fucking'' '''''huge'''''. He even describes Twilight and Spike seeing the TDN ''Novus'' as a tiny point in the distance as a minor miracle.
