* 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.

* 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.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: What happened to M'Lee? And did Natira make it out alive or not?

What happened to M'Lee? And did Natira make it out alive or not?not?
** 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.

* PuttingOnTheReich: The Peacekeepers' standard is a variation of El Lizzitsky's ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beat_the_Whites_with_the_Red_Wedge Smash the Whites With the Red Wedge]]'', a [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet]] propaganda poster. Beyond its distinctive red, white, and black aesthetic, the insignia is used in banners and murals throughout the show, drawing a clear comparison to the swastika.

* WeaponOfMassDestruction: Wormholes, and ''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone how!]]'' They produce [[ApocalypseHow Apocalypses]] in two delightful flavors. Low setting: point one end at an enemy [[ThatsNoMoon dreadnaught]] or planet. Poke other end into star. Result: portable, ''localized'' and '''directed''' '''''supernova'''''. That not enough for you? Okay. [[RealityBreakingParadox Poke one into itself]]. Result:

* TookALevelInBadass: John Crichton takes multiple levels of badass over four seasons: he starts out as a clueless nerd, and by series end is so badass he manages to intimidate two entire galactic empires into leaving him the frell alone by threatening to wipe out the universe. '''''THE ENTIRE FREAKING UNIVERSE!''''' And what makes it {{Badass}} is he can ''absolutely'' pull it off.

** Luxans occasionally experience ''hyper-rage'', a condition in which they become livid for several days and try to fight with other males. Crichton was on the receiving end of one of these from D'argo once ("Thank God It's Friday, Again").

They do learn to control it as they mature (and D'argo does later in the show), but D'Argo is very young for his race.

** Stark's babbling of "My side, your side." It starts when John first meets Stark after having been captured by Scorpius, and Stark begins babbling about splitting their shared cell into "my side, your side, ''my side, YOUR SIDE!"'' As Stark leaves Moya after being rescued, the gag doesn't become a proper running gag until after his ressurection almost a season later; when he does get into the habit, he uses it almost whenever he's under stress- when trying to keep John away from a control panel, when seperating a group of arguing bounty hunters, even when having to share a room with Rygel.

** Crichton's inability to pronounce the names of any of the alien species they meet. Played with ''brilliantly'' in "The Ugly Truth," a RashomonStyle episode in which every character tells the events of the episode from their perspective. When it's Crichton's turn, ''every'' character mispronounces the Aliens of the Week's species name the same way he did, because ''he's'' telling the story.
** The ''rest'' of the cast becomes TheMalaproprer whenever they try speaking English, or use human slang or phrases. IE D'Argo counting "Mippippippi" or saying he prefers to "go out on a swing" (swinging), and Aeryn mentioning a creepy female character gives her a "woody" (she meant "willies"). Crichton himself lampshades it in an image spot in "Dog with Two Bones" when he remarks to a hallucination of Aeryn (who's frustrated at her difficulties to learning English) that it's is a difficult language and that half the time his friends don't understand what ''he's'' saying.

* SoulEating: The apparently-magical recurring villain Maldis claims to eat souls, although this might just be mystification of something like LifeEnergy.
