* MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat: Subverted. [[spoiler:Julian is monitoring Despreaux's blood pressure and heartrate. When both go up, she's having an argument with Roger. When the heart rate goes up and the blood pressure drops, it's time to send in a MomentKiller.]]

** Several Mardukan poisons are shown to not work on humans, and vice-versa. One poison, which to Mardukans is tasteless, tastes like rotten fennel to humans. Another poison fails much, much harder-- it turns out to make an effective ''dietary supplement'' for human biology, ''saving'' the lives of much of the expedition by stretching out the dwindling supplies of manufactured supplements they need to survive on the partially-indigestible Mardukan diet.

* DeadlyDecadentCourt: Qnkok is a relatively innocuous example - or at least easily fixed. Mashad is ''much'' worse but what really shocks Pahner is that Roger seems completely unaware that he's lived in just such a court his entire life.

* BreakTheHaughty: Prince Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang [=MacClintock=] starts out the series as a bit of a vain, arrogant fop, partly in rebellion to the [[TheUnfavorite generally negative or dismissive treatment he gets from others]]. [[spoiler:His father, whom he physically resembles somewhat, was banished from the Empire of Man for treason, but no one told him about the reasons for the banishment.]] Between being stranded on a DeathWorld and finding out why he was treated as he was, the fop is quickly blown away in the course of a HeroicBSOD, and the [[spoiler:ones who overthrew the family in a coup]] find Roger [[TakeALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]] when he demonstrates just why you don't screw with [[BadassFamily a MacClintock]].
