* InfoDrop: The author seems particularly averse to exposition, so the only hope a reader has to figure anything out is to piece all the disparate tidbits together. [[LoveItOrHateIt Depending on your disposition]], this is either part of the series' charm, or horribly frustrating.

* ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth: Perhonen's avatars aboard ship take the form of a bunch of butterflies whose wings make a human face. Rather fitting since she's a gogol made from the uploaded mind of an ancient Oortian who Meili recalled from [[TheAlternet the alinen]].

* AppleOfDiscord: The original legend is referenced several times, although with a peach instead of an apple. Peaches tend to come up a lot in relation to Meili's romantic life. Make of this what you will.



* BarbarianTribe: The Oortians are seen like this by the rest of the Solar System. They live in hollowed out comets in small family groups and construct handcrafted spaceships, AIs and other fantastic creations out of smartcoral through religious rites.
