* UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: The Death Blossom device in Alex's Gunstar has never been tested. Grig tells Alex that using it might overload the systems and blow up the ship. Alex convinces him to use it anyway, and it destroys all of the Ko-Dan fighters.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Centauri does (due to having spent a significant amount of time on Earth), but the Rylosians don't--Alex has to wait a bit until they give him a translator.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Centauri does (due does, due to having spent a significant amount of time on Earth), already being familiar with Earth from producing and distributing the ''Starfighter'' video games, but the Rylosians don't--Alex and other aliens don't. Alex has to wait a bit until they give him a translator.translator. Afterwards, aliens '''are''' heard speaking English even when Alex isn't around, but this is likely TranslationConvention.

* BigBadWannabee: Xur ''thinks'' he's in charge of the Ko-Dan armada, who are actually only tolerating his guts until they get the information they need from him. Then they get rid of him.

* SeriousBusiness: Getting a high score in a video game is so important that it gets the entire trailer park's attention. Given Alex' complaints about how boring his hometown is, it may well be the most exciting thing around.

* SeriousBusiness: Getting a high score in a video game is so important that it gets the entire trailer park's attention. Given Alex' complaints about how boring his hometown is, it may well be the most exciting thing around. Also, Alex seems to be well-known and well-liked (at least among the older residents), so it may have been less about breaking the record, and more about ''Alex'' breaking the record.
