* StarshipLuxurious: Averted. The first ''Vorpal Blade'' being a converted ''Ohio''-class [[SuperiorFirepowerMissileSubmarines SSBN]], space is at a premium - though the bunks themselves are awesome, basically being the ultimate in entertainment, filled with nearly every TV series, video game, film, and music ever (and can survive in space, if the ship explodes).

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: All the book titles are {{Literary Allusion Title}}s to Lewis Carroll.



* LiteraryAllusionTitle: Ringo apparently reads a lot of Lewis Carrol, judging from the novel names. It was worse before some of the book names were changed. ''Claws That Catch'' was once ''The Tum-Tum Tree''

* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: Despite the lasers, plasma guns, and chaos guns, the most powerful weapon the humans get is mounted on a captured Dreen dreadnaught, a stupidly ''HUGE'' mass driver shows up at the end of ''Maxome Foe'' and ''obliterates'' a Hexosehr warship. Captured and re-named the ''Thermoplae'', the ship's mass driver throws a round weighing as much as a WW2 destroyer-2,100 tons, give or take, at 0.3''c''.

* FunWithAcronyms: '''A'''lliance '''S'''pace '''S'''hip ''Vorpal Blade''. First met with uncomfortable silence and implied {{facepalm}}s from the ceremony before the launch (exception of one laughing man from the Presidential crew), and subjected to really bad puns made by Two-Gun. Let's just say the Adar still don't have a grip on human language.
** One cleaner is called "ID-10-T (idiot) Decntaminant", and is used to clean up radioactive spills. When the two get into proxemity, the cleaner goes from highly toxic and acidic to being ''safe to drink'', so you look like a tool for being so careful about it.

* MisappliedPhlebotinum: One book describes an EnergyBeing getting stuck in a neural implant used as a universal remote and being upset that the microprossessor wasn't being put to better use. It's likened to a mouse using a computer fan to provide motive power for a "little mouse car".
** The FTL engine makes a huge explosion when electrified. The military was trying to turn it into a bomb when someone zapped it with a particle beam...

** Most of the characters from the first book as well. Though most of them were extras to begin with they aren't even brought up in the later series. Most likely a consequence of the GenreShift.
