Added DiffLines:

* ColonyDrop: A side-effect of the Wyndham's plan in the first film. When the Zequel starts, the Space Station has been shifted out of its orbit enough that that this is a very real possibility, and preventing it is the real reason the army is so aggressive about dismantling the station.

* TheBadGuyWins: Selena, the moon goddess of Greek mythology pretty much manages to scare off everyone off the moon in third sequel because "they were polluting her planet." It was just a little space dome at best and there was room for compromise. But nope, either it goes or she'll destroy Earth, she gets her way and the story presents this as a good thing. Yeah, no.

--> '''Zenon''': Mr. Numbar, if you thought Selena was hard to handle, let me just point out to you that Mars is the god of war.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Strangely enough since the Disney Channel was entirely in charge of the trailer, the trailers for the third movie spoiled both the existence and true appearance of Selena the moon spirit, when quite a bit of the movie is Zenon trying to figure out her "viral moon dreams" and other weird supernatural things that keep happening to her. Oh, gee, it couldn't be that moon spirit the trailers showed, could it?

** [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief It could happen.]] The United States is one of the few nations in the world to still use non-Metric measurements at all, so it's possible that they'd use Fahrenheit in a classroom. [[FridgeLogic Not everybody's as international as the people on the space station.]]
*** Celsius is used for Science in the United States.
**** In the present day it is- but apparently not in 2049, according to the movie.
*** When the movie was made, science classes would use both American and Metric measurements[[note]]mostly Metric though, because it's simpler to teach and do conversions in[[/note]], but being able to do conversions between the systesms is a necessary skill in math and science classes... one which a student from a strictly-metric education program would of course lack.



* TheOtherDarrin. Shadia Simmons replaces Raven as Nebula in the second movie. Zenon's parents in the second movie and Protazoa in the third movie.

Added DiffLines:

* HaveAGayOldTime: The word "viral" is used as (and explicitly described as being) essentially a synonym for either bad or disgusting. Cut to several years later in real life the age when the internet rules with an iron fist, and "viral" all of a sudden takes on the meaning of "shared frequently online."
