** Then again, in reality, research enabling regular space travel appears to have stalled as well, at least in the public perception, but certainly it's stalled more than genetic research (which itself, of course, hasn't resulted in DesignerBabies just yet). It appears RealLife inverted the matter of which research fields would progress faster over others.

* FailedASpotCheck: Whenever they check Jerome's blood, his name and photo show up on a computer screen with the word "VALID". That said, the guy giving the sample is ''Vincent'', who looks nothing like Jerome. Vincent himself brings this up the moment he meets Jerome; the forger explains that photo ID is so outdated Vincent could use the forger's photo (played by Tony Shalhoub) and people wouldn't notice. People have grown so complacent in depending on the DNA checks that they commit the first-week-of-basic-training mistake of not comparing the ID to the ID holder.

* BurningTheShips: Invoked: Vincent, training to become an astronaut, swims across a channel with no visibility. [[SiblingRivalry When Anton does so with him]], he panics in the middle as he sees no way back. Vincent tells him that's how he got to where he is in life: by never considering a way back.

[[SiblingRivalry When Anton does so with him]], he panics in the middle as he sees no way back. they were kids, Vincent tells and Anton would play a game of "chicken" where they would swim out to sea as far as possible with the loser being the one who turns s back first. Anton would always win until Vincent beat him that's by deliberately not saving energy for the swim back, mirroring how he Vincent got to where he is in life: by never considering a way back.

* BuryYourGays: In a deleted scene, when the geneticist asks Antonio and Marie if he had forgotten anything, they mention that they wanted Anton to marry and give them some grandchildren. As he has already taken care of any genetic diseases that would inhibit reproduction, it seems clear that they don't want Anton to be gay.

We are then told that the doctors had done this before they had even asked.

* RetroUniverse: Probably the TropeCodifier. A blend of early 60s fashions and "futuristic" vehicles from the period, and 30s noir. The plot and theme has a very 50s ScienceFiction feel as well. Particularly, there are a lot of notable similarities and parallels in both atmosphere, setting, and characterization to indie and/or sci-fi works by Creator/PhilipKDick (very much so, ''especially'' those written in the 60s), and 90s movies by the Wachowski brothers and Creator/DarrenAronofsky, all of which reflected a similar stylised dystopian bent with works set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture.
