* BullyingADragon: Harlan does this to Radu, rather a lot. Given that we've [[BewareTheNiceOnes seen what he's capable of when an alien virus drives him over the edge]], it's a damn good thing for Harlan's welfare that Radu's a [[ActualPacifist harmless]], [[{{Adorkable}} socially-awkward]], [[{{Dojikko}} somewhat klutzy]] [[NiceGuy sweetheart]] rather than the violent savage Harlan seems to think all his species are.

* NotSoDifferent: Harlan hates all Andromedans for the death of his father, while Radu hates all Spung for enslaving his race. Elmira notes in "Spung at Heart" that both are afraid of their prejudices being proven wrong.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Part of the reason Catalina had to be written out was because Jewel Staite had a commitment to the Disney Channel/Family Channel (CA) series ''Series/FlashForward'' (no relation to [[FlashForward2009 the '09 series]]). Peter David knew this going in; thus the creation/reveal of Suzee. %% Do not argue with this post. If it is incorrect, then change it. %%

* {{Retirony}}: A variation of it in the first episode. Commander Goddard was demoted to teacher following a "space pirate" incident (see Noodle Incident). After the Christa was sent seven-light years from the academy, he said he was three weeks away from leaving the academy to return to space with a crew, and now he stuck in a strange alien ship... [[{{Irony}} with]] [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits a crew]].
