* ExpositoryThemeTune: As quoted above. In the first season the original opening theme was orchestral, with a narrator (Creator/HarlanEllison) giving a preamble, and the theme tune was used over the closing credits. The closing theme moved to the opening in the second season, re-recorded to fit Catalina's replacement and new descriptions of the characters. It was further re-recorded for first season episodes after the series ended, but with Catalina featured in, and a new opening sequence was created, according to ThatOtherWiki, making the original opening a truer example of KeepCirculatingTheTapes.

A live-action science fiction show for children that aired on {{Nickelodeon}} from 1996-1998. It told the story of a group of Starcademy students from different planets who sneaked aboard a mysterious space ship called The Christa. After two of their teachers come looking for them, the ship takes off with all of them aboard, right through a white hole that drops them off over 7 years from home. They become ''Series/LostInSpace''...

* 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. %%
