* SnarkingThanks: One episode (when Scorpius was a prisoner on Moya) saw the ship get taken over by pirates. Crichton discovers that Scorpius has also escaped his cell and hatches a plan to retake the ship. This involves handing him a large blaster and staging an ambush. When they actually pull off the ambush, Scorpius tries to fire on the enemy and discovers Crichton gave him an uncharged blaster. His response: "Thank you, John."

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: When John doesn't see much difference between genocidal, authoritarian Peacekeepers and genocidal, authoritarian Scarrans, Scorpius vows to "show you the difference." What he shows as proof is a Scarran raping a Sebacean as part of a genetic experiment.

* TheRashomon: "The Ugly Truth".

to:

* TheRashomon: "The Ugly Truth".Truth" is built on this trope, as each character tells their version of the sequence of events that led to the destruction of a Plokavian ship. In fact, it's actually a plot point in of itself, because Plokavians ''aren't'' affected by individual perspective as other species are, and all see events unfold the same way. Thus they automatically assume that Moya's crew is lying when their stories don't match up. As a particularly nice touch, the version of events told by Crichton have all of the characters mispronouncing the alien species' name as "Plokavoids" the same way he does.

* RandomTransportation: This was the critical downside to a Leviathan's 'Starburst'. For this reason it's most often used as an emergency escape rather than a regular mode of travel.

However subverted later in the series, as Moya becomes capable of performing a [=StarBurst=] with a specified destination, and even perform an ''extended'' [=StarBurst=] (though not without extreme difficulty and discomfort for her passengers).

** A minor and non-Scorpius-related version occurs in "Jeremiah Crichton" when John decides he's had enough of life on Moya and runs off in his module. He is promptly abandoned (though accidentally) and is [[HypocriticalHumor demonstrably upset]] when they finally return for him, since he never intended to leave for real.

* TvTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary: And so will this show. Seriously, just try watching all four seasons in one go and then watch with increasing annoyance as you interchange 'fuck' with 'frell' in real life.

* RockBeatsLaser: "I Shrink, Therefore, I Am". Used literally in "Lava's a Many Splendored Thing", where the mooks have shield belts that deflect pulse blasts. Let's just say that they do not deflect rocks. Or lava.

Let's just say that they do not deflect rocks. Or lava. Crichton's unshielded prototype module is also perfectly safe to use in wormhole travel when massively more advanced ships are not (which is noted in-universe as completely inexplicable).

Added DiffLines:

* TheStoryThatNeverWas: At the climax of "The Locket", the central characters are forced to use the strange properties of the NegativeSpaceWedgie that they are trapped in to reverse time and change history so that they never entered it. One of the two characters with a RippleEffectProofMemory who remember this feels guilt that they might have erased a number of people who were conceived and born thanks to one of the crew having children on a planet on the other side of the anomaly, but the other speculates that they might have split the timeline instead of erasing it.

Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: At the end of season three, when Scorpius has had enough of Crichton being uncooperative he makes a serious threat [[spoiler: that he will destroy Earth.]] Once everything goes pear-shaped, he acknowledges that doing so would gain him nothing and so decides not to bother.

** Although ''Peacekeeper Wars'' ends with [[spoiler: the Peacekeepers and the Scarrans signing a peace treaty]] and this is treated as a good thing that will bring peace to the galaxy. But the ending ignores that both sides are still evil, and all the bad stuff they've done--like the Peacekeepers enslaving Leviathans and occupying client worlds--gets zero resolution, turning what's supposed to be a happy ending into BlackAndBlackMorality.
