* YouHaveFailedMe: Not uncommon in the Federation, but appears to be standard operating procedure for Servalan specifically (Travis is the major exception, and even then he eventually has to go on the run).

* TheQuincyPunk - the Space Rats are violent Outlaw Bikers [[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE]] who have gigantic mohawks and glam-rock facial make-up. Not so much "stereotype punk" as "three different countercultures shoved in a blender".

* MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness: Way down on the soft end in the original series. Way up at the hard end for the audio dramas, which have retooled away Time Distort drives in favor of talk about fixed mass points and delta-v, depict the Federation as lacking artificial gravity technology, and even remove Liberator's teleport.
