* {{Prospector}}: Milo might live on another planet in the distant future, but he doesn't let that stop him from living this trope to the fullest.

* EverybodyLaughsEnding: A potentially MoodWhiplash-inducing one, given that the Doctor was desperately defusing a bomb less than two minutes earlier. --> '''Doctor:''' Well, [the TARDIS is] no problem. It's orbiting Lobos, Milo's home planet, in one of the beacon sections.\\ '''Vicki:''' Oh, no problem, eh? Well, how are we going to get to it?\\ '''Doctor:''' Milo's very kindly offered to give us a lift in [[TheAllegedCar the LIZ]]!\\ '''Jamie:''' Oh, no. Not the LIZ again. Frankly, I'd rather walk.\\ '''Doctor:''' Walk? You never know. You might have to.\\ '''Everyone:''' ''[Uproarious laughter]''

* ClearMyName

* AsYouKnow: Early in the first episode, the SpaceNavy officer announces his theory that the pirates are after "Argonite," which wouldn't be quite so {{egregious}}, until he adds, "the most valuable mineral known to man." %%* ClearMyName

* MacGuffin: The Argonite that everyone's after
to:
* MacGuffin: The Argonite that everyone's afterafter. It's stated early on the be "the most valuable mineral known to man", which is about the end of its meaningful role in the plot. * NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: The name would suggest that it's just [[SpacePirates Pirates]] InSpace The introduction of Clancey quickly turns it into a strange blend of SpacePirates in a SpaceWestern.

* SleepCute: The Doctor, Jamie and Zoe. See above * SpaceIsAnOcean * SpaceNavy: The Interstellar Space Corps * SpacePirates ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Obviously]]) * SpaceWestern: If you think of the titular pirates as actually being a gang of outlaws, suddenly the fact one of the main characters is a grizzled old prospector makes a lot more sense.

And if his plaid shirt and over-the-top facial hair didn't make it clear enough, the SpaceNavy officer and his XO have a conversation in the second episode that seals the deal, about similar "old-timers" who ran wild in the early years of space travel, and now resent the advent of law in space.
