* CluelessAesop: This is a DrugsAreBad story about intergalactic drug smugglers. It started out quite reasonable and relevant (and in a show that had been and later continued to be quite good at dealing with serious political issues in an allegorical format) but all three series lead actors, especially Lalla Ward, were concerned that the script might glamorize drug use to young viewers. The FantasticDrug was renamed from the vaguely fun-sounding 'zip' to the nonsensical 'vrax', and everything about why anyone might want to take the drug was removed, with the result of turning vrax into something instantly addictive and invariably fatal that doesn't even make you very high.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Tryst is mostly sort of German, but occasionally slips into a sudden Italian accent. The actor was deliberately trying for an accent unlike anything on Earth, to show that the character wasn't from Earth.
