* {{Badass}}: The entire crew of Clear Skies count.
** Mr Tarquin Smith is one too : [[spoiler:Turns out he's Jovian, a master hacker, and that he's hiding a ''freaking machine gun in his suitcase !'']]
*** And early on in two, he throws a chair through a glass plate in the Clear Skies' kitchen with enough force to disable a couple mooks.

''Clear Skies'' is an EveOnline machinima fanfilm that uses footage from EVE itself for its exterior space scenes, much like ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' is filmed entirely in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. As the game had no interior areas at the time of filming, interior shots are done using the ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' engine. While ''Half-Life 2's'' character models are reused, all the 'sets' are newly designed to great effect, and windows looking out into space are accomplished by blue-screening EVE footage onto them.

** Sol treats the idea of a microwarpdrive on a battleship as flirting with insanity[[note]]and his fears turn out to be justified[[/note]]; within the game of EveOnline, however, battleship pilots (and higher-end NPC battleships) will routinely fit microwarpdrives.

** The Phantom Fleet of ''Episode Two'' has a lot of pirate faction ships (several Machariels and Nightmares, at least one Bhaalgorn) that are rarer and more expensive in EVEOnline than their standard variants.

** In ''EVEOnline'', a ship is piloted by a capsuleer, someone who resides within a [[PeopleJars specially-designed life-support pod]], [[WetwareCPU wired]] in such a way that the [[ManInTheMachine pod]] (and through the pod, [[SpaceShipGirl the ships they pilot]]) [[ManInTheMachine becomes the capsuleer's body]]. [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist They don't die permanently]], as they are cloned, and are transferred to the clone upon their death. As such, one person has absolute control of every aspect of the ship, they are not going to be able to wander the halls, and [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist death's not much of a risk]]. This can make for a very boring story. Now, while canon does indicate that [[http://www.eveonline.com/background/potw/default.asp?cid=20-04-09 ships have normal crews]], Rourke, Burke and Fodder are all actual players and, thus, capsuleers as far as canon is concerned. Since this leads to a less-exciting story overall, the series puts them in the role of crew members of an otherwise non-player battleship.

** In 2, Sasha is initially referred to by Rourke as "One unit of Damsel In Distress." A regularly occurring mission in [[EVEOnline]], called "Damsel In Distress," involves the player rescuing exactly that.

* GenreSavvy: In the first episode, the fact that the pay for Mr. Smith's job is ''way'' too high for the amount of effort involved instantly clues the crew in that something is wrong. Unfortunately, the only other job available is so comically mundane that running it could very well result in a net loss, so they take the deathtrap job.

* VillainBall: In ''3'', Ghost could have just actually paid for the power supply while [[spoiler:still inpersonating Smith]] and neither Rourke nor Smith would have had any idea what was going on until it was much too late. Money certainly wasn't an issue. Instead, Ghost unintentionally [[NiceJobFixingItVillain made an incredibly dangerous enemy]] by [[spoiler:blowing up the gang's ship]].
