** The two boys who mock Taggert and the show are known as "Mundanes" in the convention circuit - people who buy tickets to be amused by the slavish worship of whatever IP the convention is honoring. The opposite, of course, are the FIAWOL's[[note]]Fandom As A Way of Life[[/note]] attending.

* WeNeedADistraction: Discussed by Guy as he offers to go into the control room and [[HeroicSacrifice distract Sarris' mooks long enough]] for the Thermians to escape. Fred calls it a SuicideMission and suggests another approach.
* WeWillNotHavePocketsInTheFuture: Parodied with the main complaining about the lack of pockets.

** Jason, before he realizes that everything is real and while he's still hungover, CutsTheKnot with the negotiations with Sardis and simply orders the ship to attack him. While the Thermians freak out at the order, Jason walks off the bridge and asks to be sent home all while the Thermians point out that they would have no chance to win the fight due to being greatly underpowered and outclassed. Jason casually assures him that they'll be fine. Rest assured, the next we see Sarris, his ship is shown to have lost badly because the first officer failed to raise the deflector shield in time to counter Jason's rash order, possibly out of shock of the [[RefugeInAudacity audacity of the whole thing]].

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Guy starts his appearance off as an excited fan greeting the main cast of Galaxy Quest as old friends telling them about the bit part he had in one episode as a Redshirt (since his part was so small and it's been 20 years, no one remembers him). From then on, he becomes the eager TagAlongKid and volunteers himself to go with the cast to what they thought was a job. When they realize that it's all real, Guy spends the rest of the movie freaking out that he's going to die like a real Redshirt.

** Parodied InUniverse with Lebanese-American Tony Shalhou as Tech Sergeant Chen [[FakeNationality somehow]] being representative of a Chinese character. When the Thermians are naming the crew, he narrows his eyes when his character's name is spoken. Apparently, that's supposed to be enough to make him seem Chinese.

** The button that Gwen and Jason must press to deactivate the ship's self-destruct sequence rises out out of the console on a metal cylinder reminiscent of those that Ripley uses in her attempt to abort the Nostromo's self-destruct sequence in ''Film/{{Alien}}''. Also, doubles as an ActorAllusion, since Sigourney Weaver starred in that film.
