* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: The twist near the end that [[spoiler:the SCOOP Project was searching for materials that could be turned into biochemical warfare agents in space]] (and sets off Leavitt and Burton, who are both somewhat anti-establishment) is given in a backstory InfoDump on the second chapter of the novel, and none of the characters in it are concerned about that detail so much as the horror of the SCOOP-7 mission having GoneHorriblyRight.

* As mentioned before on ConvulsiveSeizures, the Wildfire team would have found a potential cure for Andromeda earlier in the story if Leavitt hadn't been alone in the lab and the computer wasn't set to show the results with massive, blinking red letters.

** After the self-destruct alarm sounds--and [[FromBadToWorse professional decorum deteriorates]]--incidental characters flee, having observing Leavitt's ''grand mal'' seizure. One assumes, "She's got the germ!" Less dramatically (but of more significance to the plot) she'd had an absence seizure while monitoring lab results. When a substance is found to inhibit Andromeda's growth, red text flashes on a screen: causing Leavitt to "blank out" for a few seconds. She reports to her colleagues that no cultures were affected.

** Dr Leavitt often doesn't take a lot of things happening in the Wildfire complex or what is expected seriously. On noticing the crops at the isolated U.S. Departmemt of Agriculture research station which conceals wildfire, she says "Great place to grow pot." Later, she ducks looking at a flashing hazard light on a construction sawhorse, and to hide the real reason for not looking (she has epilepsy) she says, "I never did like red lights. Reminds me of my years in a bordello."
