* CaptainErsatz: Chiaki is basically [[LightNovel/{{Oreimo}} Kuroneko]] + [[LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties Futaba Aoi]], with all three [[Creator/KanaHanazawa sharing the same Japanese VA]].

* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: Despite being set in space in the far future most of the clothing worn by pirate raiders is based on the clothes worn by pirates in the 17th and 18th centuries.

* FlawedPrototype: [[spoiler: The ''Grand Cross'' could be an example of this. It is certainly a deadly opponent with its gravity control which allows high-speed zig-zagging, its [[BeamSpam Beam Spams]] and other systems. However it often powers down after using these to a certain degree. Also, while its shields can cope with beams, they aren't as effective against physical bombardment.]]

** Heavy automation, with only a single living crewmember, also means that this ship is ridiculously vulnerable to being boarded.
** No underside weapons whatsoever

** Heavy automation, with only a single living crewmember, also means that this ship is ridiculously vulnerable to being boarded. Bonus point for the relatively small amount of robots guarding the interior of the ship.
** No underside weapons whatsoeverwhatsoever.



* ForScience: Marika learns that [[spoiler: the ''Grand Cross'' is attacking pirate ships in the region partly to get combat data for the prototype ship, and partly because, according to the ''Grand Cross'' captain, "pirates are no longer needed".]] Marika doesn't take that message very well.

* {{Made of Explodium}}: Thoroughly averted. Most ships could take a lot of damage before getting destroyed, and when they got critically damaged, would simply go "silent" (read: have their systems knocked out with the hull relatively intact) instead of exploding. The only ships that exploded throughout the TV series are the 'Big Catch', a ship that got an on-board fire reaching the [[{{Made of Explodium}} magazine]] AFTER all of the crew escaped, and the three 'Grand Cross'-class prototype battleships, which were [[{{Self Destruct Mechanism}} self-destructed]] to [[{{Destroy the Evidence}} destroy the evidence]].
