* AbsentAliens: The characters display absolutely no interest in their computer calculating a 95% chance of intelligent life in a nearby system, with the implication that previous pursuits of such readings had brought disappointing results. Or maybe [[FantasticallyIndifferent they're just that burned the fuck out.]]

* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:Doolittle succeeds at convincing Bomb #20 that its external sensory data is a lie and it itself is the only thing it can be sure exists, in a desperate gambit to make the bomb disregard an order to detonate while still attached to the ship.]] Unfortunately, the character in question uses this new 'insight' to become a solipsist and eventually decides that, in the absence of anything else having any proof of existence, this means it is, in fact, God. And God said "let there be light"... And there was light...

** Note that it does so when coming out of hyperdrive. Modern shows have ships doing exactly the same thing, which is justified if an esoteric Drive is used to subvert Newtonian physics.

* CoolChair: Talby's chair not only looks cool, but is motorised and turns dramatically.

* MagicalSecurityCam: during the asteroid storm, the ship's computer displays an image of the bomb clearly taken from outside the ship, and from the perspective of the audience.

Added DiffLines:

* AllForNothing: Yes, the planets the crew destroy are unstable and could eventually threaten life in that system, but only on a cosmic time scale. It will take thousands of years for the orbits of said planets to destabilize enough to be a threat, which means they aren't really a problem that needs to be dealt with any time this millennium and the Dark Star's mission is completely pointless.
