Added DiffLines:

* GrievousBottleyHarm: A more realistic example than most. The bottle doesn't break, despite being swung with a human's full strength. It also does some serious damage to the target.


Added DiffLines:

* TwoShotsFromBehindTheBar: It should come as no surprise that Dyorbid, as the proprietor of a BadGuyBar, keeps a plasma rifle behind his bar. Unfortunately, during the [[BarBrawl brawl]], it winds up in the hands of the {{cyborg}} [[WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture slavers]].

Added DiffLines:

* JustLikeUs: The Alliance covert infiltration team gets a dose of this during the mission. It's also heavily implied that they've infiltrated the Radiant Throne before, so [[FridgeLogic they really should have already known]].

** Because the ''Fool's Errand'' uses older gravity technology, they can't have the artificial gravity on while they're [[FasterThanLightTravel in tach]]. Well, technically they ''can'', but it's dangerous.

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Surprisingly averted, for the most part. Planets are portrayed as being a realistic size, and it takes close to a week for a ship to leave a solar system. However, [[StandardStarshipScuffle space combat]] has all the hallmarks of combat at point-blank range. At one point, one of the characters laments that their ship is too large to fit underneath the other ship's shields, since that would have given them a free shot at her [[TractorBeam gravlock]].

* WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture: We never see any slaves, but there are slavers, which would [[CaptainObvious tend to imply the existence of slaves]].

* WhatDidIDoLastNight: Grif and crew have a huge celebration with several of the other crews in port. They all get so smashed, the next morning, they can't remember what happened. This isn't the first such party, either: They've had to institute [[CapitalLettersAreMagic The List]], a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin computer record]] of everyone's possessions that they had entered the party with, bets that were made, and the winners and losers of those bets.
