*** The Israel one is particularly devious, as the Foreign Office civil servant that Hacker sent was well-known to [[ArabIsraeliConflict side with the Arabs]]. The actual reassignment doubled as a [[Funny/YesMinister Crowning Moment of Funny]].

** One example which is not played for laughs is Hacker's fear of being sent to [[StrokeCountry Northern Ireland]]. The series is set when UsefulNotes/TheTroubles were in full swing, and being a senior British government official in Northern Ireland carried with it a significant risk of being the victim of terrorist attacks and assassination attempts. Even if he wasn't blown up the Secretary of astate for Northern Ireland couldn't do anything which would make him popular in Great Britain (thus limiting his future career) while he'd be blamed for anything bad happening involving the Troubles.

** Colonel Klink and Sargeant Schultz were often threatened with a transfer to the Eastern Front (which again is more of a SuicideMission than a remote posting.

** Colonel Klink was often threatened with a transfer to the Eastern Front.
** Stalag 13 itself is a form of this trope, as none of the other senior-level German officers on ''Series/HogansHeroes'' take Klink (or his assignment) anywhere nearly as seriously as Klink takes himself. Klink, Schultz, and presumably most of the other guards are WWI veterans too old for frontline assignments. In fact, the only reason Klink's general incompetence hasn't been discovered is that Hogan and the rest of the prisoners [[BetterTheDevilYouKnow contrive to keep him around (as a more competent commandant would discover their sabotage/espionage activities).]] The Eastern Front is more a case of FromBadToWorse...particularly for [[GeneralFailure any troops who find themselves under Klink's command]].

Added DiffLines:

** The station itself was initially billed as such, a remote backwater that nobody in their right mind would willingly visit. That all changes in the pilot episode, when they discover the wormhole.

** Being remotely reassigned is even possible within the Order of the Wall. Lord Commander Jon Snow tries to send troublemaker Janos Slynt to Greyguard, a remote fortress far from their home base. Janos refuses to accept such a "demeaning" assignment multiple times. This was not the smartest move he could make. Janos' assignment is actually a subversion. He was being tasked with the important job of restoring one of the Watch's many derelict forts to fighting condition, even after he fled a battle and would have ideally been be headed for desertion.

** Ironically, Antartica has become a tropical paradise due to improper activation of terraforming equipment (or so the rumors claim), so in the world of Defiance, it's actually a nice place to go.
