* QhamefulSourceOfKnowledge: In [=PartnerShip=], the five {{Royal Brats}} that [[LivingShip Nancia]] ferried to their [[ReassignedToAntarctica remote postings in the Nyota system]] are all planning to use their positions for various kinds of corrupt practices (they even have a bet going; the one who makes the most shady money in five years gets a cut of the others' operations). However, Nancia can't tell anyone about it because she got the information by refusing to introduce herself and letting them think they were aboard a mindless drone, which is considered tantamount to spying.

* ParentalAbandonment: Theoretically, once parents give consent for their babies to become brainships, they have no further contact with them and the kids grow up knowing nothing about their background. Nancia of ''[=PartnerShip=]'' and Tia of ''The Ship Who Searched'' avert this totally, however. Nancia's parents belong to the wealthy and powerful 'High Families' class so they could [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney screw the rules]] setting a precedent for Tia's parents continued involvement in her life.

Tia is also a rare case of having become a shellperson in childhood rather than infancy, and thus had several years of normal family bonding before a disease paralyzed her body.

In TheFuture, infants with severe birth defects are placed in self-contained life-support shells in which they will spend their entire lives, and are trained to become the "brain" of a starship (and later, space station, megacity, etc.), into which they will be connected in such a way that the facility is effectively their body. Most "brains" are then partnered with
humans, dubbed "brawns", who act as representative and counterpart, going where the brains cannot.

* CoolStarship: Depending on how inherently cool you consider the idea of a brainship. The actual ship body is usually something ordinary and middle-of-the-range.
