** The moon is variably described as being billions of kilometers, miles, and light-years from Earth, resulting in roughly equal difficulty in returning despite the fact that the first case would put the moon closer to Earth than Saturn, while in the latter case the moon would be vastly more distant from the Milky Way galaxy than the Great Wall, currently the largest known feature of the universe. It (the moon) passes between star systems at speeds fast enough to go through a star system per week, yet remains close enough to each and slow enough to reach a planet via shuttle for days at a time.

* StableTimeLoop: The final twist of [[WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue "Message From Moonbase Alpha"]]: [[spoiler: Benes' final report from Alpha, pleading those on Earth to remember them and sent through a boosted carrier wave back to Earth but with the Alphans not knowing when (or ''if'') it would arrive, went back in time and was the Meta Planet's wave, which pretty much was the trigger for ''the whole series''.]]

* CustomUniformOfSexy: Averted. Despite Dr. Russell being the only female part of consequence in the first season, and Barbara Bain's obvious star status, she wears exactly the same uniform as everyone else (with the exception of not having a zipper down one sleeve -- but that was for the actress's comfort, and not for cosmetic purposes). And so does Maya, as she joins the doctor as a female lead in the second season.

* PreCap: The introduction to each first-season episode contains a montage of action shots from the episode, often of Eagles blowing up or people being thrown across rooms by explosions. This gives away nothing of the plot since it is presented without context.

This gives away nothing of the plot since it is presented without context. This is similar to the brief pre-title sequence used in the Anderson's ''{{Thunderbirds}}'', and their only re-use of the idea.

*** The second-season episode "The Taybor" starts with a scene in the solarium, which seems to be occupied only by women in skimpy bikinis.

** In the second season the women's uniforms are somewhat more feminine, with skirts as an alternative to trousers.

** The thin fabric of the first-season uniforms makes it rather obvious that some of the women aren't wearing bras.
