* AnyoneCanDie: It's masked a little by Johnnie's [[UnreliableNarrator optimism]], but pretty much anybody he mentions by name has about a fifty/fifty chance of buying it by the end. WordOfGod says that Johnnie [[DeadlyEuphemism bought his farm]] on Klendathu.

* NoodleIncident: At the end of Rico's training, he mentions that he left a lot out, specifically, that he said "...nothing about the time we dropped everything and fought a forest fire for three days, no mention of the practice alert that was a real one, only we didn't know it until it was over, nor about the day the cook tent blew away..."

* PsychicPowers: Not focused upon, but present; one "sensitive" is brought in to draw a map of a tunnel network near the end. It's the real deal, but Rico himself is skeptical. Rico also refers in passing to the "talents" assigned to Logistics & Communications (including "telepaths," "sensers," and "lucky men"). Even after the sensitive's skills are proven, Johnnie still doubts the guy is psychic. His theory is the guy might just have really good hearing. Several comments made by the sensitive and his "handlers" would seem to back this up, but it's still ambiguous.

** However, nobody thinks the Arachnids are inferior or evil. It is just everyone's bad luck that "two tough, smart races want the same real estate."

** However, nobody thinks the Arachnids are inferior or evil. It is just everyone's bad luck that "two tough, smart races want the same real estate."" It's even implied that, rather than seeking annihilation of the Bugs, the Federation is seeking the higher castes in order to find out what kind of leverage they'll need in order to negotiate a peace.
