* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Destroying the Centre, ruining the plan to save the country, not following safety instructions when making planet sweep to begin with.]]]] This has consequences in the larger 'verse, with Maxim's blunder being the final nail in the coffin of the program that allowed private citizens to explore the galaxy on their own. The program is shut down, and exploration is left to the professionals.

There are three versions of the novel - the original (all but impossible to find), the censored version (896 corrections) approved by the Soviet government (the basis for all official foreign translations) and the 'restored' version that reverts many -- but not all -- of the changes (the only version still in print). A movie adaptation premiered in Russia in December 2008. It has received [[AdaptationDecay rather poor reviews.]]
