* 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]''

* 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."

* 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.
