* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Oddly, it applies to androids as well, specifically the third point on that page: "Male characters get more explicit and brutal deaths." To wit: As the crew is dropping {{Logic Bomb}}s on the androids, the Alices are shown simply closing their eyes and slipping placidly into sleep mode. However, Norman's death by Logic Bomb is much more visually torturous, as smoke and sparks pour from his ears... because ''his brain is on fire''. This is perhaps justified by the fact that Norman is the HiveQueen and required a stronger bomb to take him down.



* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Kirk says nothing about his plan until he sets it into motion--which involves SlippingAMickey to Mudd in order to get back to the ''Enterprise''. It looks like it might work until Uhura blows the whole plan out of her desire to stay and become an immortal android. Kirk looks like he's about to chew her out big time--and then congratulates her, revealing that this too was part of the plan. On to Phase 2...

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The androids want to take over the galaxy, coddling everyone into a state of blissful dependence, in order to protect the cosmos from all the hubris, aggression and whatnot they observed in Harry Mudd.

* ThatCameOutWrong: [=McCoy=]'s explanation of why he doesn't trust Norman -- he never smiles, he doesn't do small talk... -- accidentally insults Spock. He tries to explain that it's different for Vulcans, which doesn't really help.

It seems that after Harry decided to release himself on his own recognizance (i.e., he broke out of jail) he crash landed on this planet of androids who immediately made him their emperor. It seems the androids are very much like [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Lumiere and his friends]]. They're just not happy without people to serve. And now that they have an entire starship full of people to serve, Mudd can now leave his android followers for a permanent vacation.
