* ImmortalRuler: Emperor Gray is just as immortal as anyone else who can afford an aTan. It's just that his resurrections are paid for by the Empire.

* ResurrectionTeleportation:
** Resurrection for humans is commonplace, and the moment anyone dies, that fact instantaneously spreads through the whole universe (OurSoulsAreDifferent) and they can be cloned again immediately in the respawn chamber. Made into a plot point many times:
** The prime motivation for the main character to work for the CorruptCorporateExecutive is that if he doesn't, he will eventually die and then resurrect in his own private chamber to be [[FateWorseThanDeath tortured to death infinite amount of times]].
** At one point the party is trapped by Silicoids - their only way to escape is to kill themselves and respawn, except they can't do that, because the moment they try they'll be reduced to a BrainInAJar.
** At another point the party attempts to bypass some sector of space by coming close enough to be under jurisdiction of a respawn point on the other side and then killing themselves so that they will be transported there.

* MonumentalArtifacts:
** Curtis van Curtis owns a lot of land on Terra where parts of his enormous palace are located (connected by portals). When walking through it, Kay notes a circular collection of standing stones, likely Stonehenge, right near van Curtis's wartime ship.
** Lyka Seiker's bath chamber is topped by the Art/SistineChapel's painted ceiling. She reflects that the reclining figure on the central panel always reminds her of Kay.

'''Line of Delirium''' (''Линия грёз'', Liniya gryoz; can be also translated as ''Line of Reveries'' or ''Line of Dreams'', which are more appropriate titles) is a SpaceOpera trilogy written by the popular Russian science fiction author SergeyLukyanenko. The setting of the trilogy was influenced by ''VideoGame/MasterOfOrion'', although the only things that can be tied back to the game are the names of the alien races and several planets. The novels describe a distant future where humanity is living in a [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack Universe]] still recovering from a devastating interstellar war and dealing with a radical new technology called aTan (anti-Thanatos) that allows a person to be [[ResurrectiveImmortality recreated in case of death]], essentially granting immortality to anyone willing and able to pay for it.

* FutureImperfect - During his second arrival to Grail, Kay calls himself Literature/DavidCopperfield and Tommy Literature/OliverTwist. When the customs officer gets suspicious, Kay explains that the two of them belong to a cult of anonimists. Not only do they not carry any identification, but their names are borrowed from a book by Creator/MarkTwain about the [[Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer adventures of two close friends]], clearly confusing them for two titular characters from separate novels by Creator/CharlesDickens. The customs officer seems to accept that, including their statement about [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy hitchhiking across the galaxy]].

* SpaceIsCold - surprisingly averted. When jumping out into space in PoweredArmor (not in a proper EVA suit), Kay's main concern isn't air, it's overheating, since armor was never meant to spend a long time in vacuum, so cooling has never been an issue.
