* JerkAss: Uvanov. At first, he seems to care about little more than getting as much sand (read: money) as possible. Of course, this is before he realizes how truly screwed he is.

* JerkAss: {{Jerkass}}:
** Every crew member is a jerk, but Borg is the most pointlessly nasty and spiteful. His EstablishingCharacterMoment is describing a freak accident where a robot masseuse pulled off a man's arm, to a man having his arm massaged by a robot. He constantly interrupts other characters when they try and talk, makes (empty) death threats to his coworkers in order to control them, and then when called on it immediately backtracks and protests that he's done nothing wrong. He slaps Jelly Babies out of the Doctor's hand, and starts choking him in response to a sarcastic joke the Doctor makes at his expense. At one point he becomes affronted that people are accusing him of murdering his friends, causing Zilda to retort, "you don't have any friends!"
