* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: Type 2 utilised when Crichton actually tries to punch Maldis in the head, only to almost break his fist on the wall behind him. Also, in a much later episode, it's revealed that Zhaan and Crichton's apparent takedown of Maldis was [[spoiler: a Type 1. In spite of being dispersed, Maldis was eventually able to put himself back together again]].

* PropheciesAreAlwaysRight: Maldis gloats that thanks to his actions, Crais will ''never'' return to Peacekeeper home territory and only carry on deeper into the Uncharted Territories. [[spoiler: As the next two seasons show, Crais did exactly this, ultimately dying in the Uncharted Territories.]]

* HowUnscientific: Maldis is one of the most loathed characters in the whole show, for being an outright fantasy villain in a fairly hard sci-fi setting.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Liko (along with several of the background characters) is, by all appearances, a red-skinned Delvian with dark red hair (note the similar earlobe design, for instance). All other Delvians that appear later in the show are blue and usually bald or have white hair.

Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: The episode was designed to subvert it. Crichton actually gets to clear up that the death of Crais' brother was a freak accident, but by the end of the episode Crais has another reason to hunt him.

Meanwhile, the duel between Crichton and Crais continues from one end of Maldis' lair to the next; Crichton is always on the defensive and always trying vainly to convince Crais that the death of his brother Tauvo was an accident, while Crais is always on the attack and refusing to listen. At one point, however, when a flaming bottomless pit temporarily ends the duel, Crichton tries again and actually appears to be getting through to Crais; however, Maldis appears and shows Crais a series of illusions designed to get him angry all over again- the first, a memory of his father ordering him to keep Tauvo safe; the second, Tauvo in full uniform, looking pretty happy to see Crais; finally, [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel Tauvo's flaming corpse.]] After managing to escape from the enraged Crais, Crichton finally realises that Maldis is actually feeding on their rage and fear; Maldis confirms this, and also informs him of the fact that the life of one of the two combatants will form the main course. To that end, he offers him a deal; if one of them were to die, the other would be returned to his ship, safe and sound.
