* InstantSedation: Used when another team shows up with a sick member, who convulses and is sedated (instantly!) to stop the convulsions.

** [[spoiler: Grace Day, the school counselor, is kind, warm, understanding and patient. Always going beyond the call of duty to help her students. Traveler 0027 is exactly the opposite, being a cold, heartless bitch with zero people skill and no intent of faking it, which raises the question of how the hell was she going to masquerade as her host]].

** However, it is uncertain whether he will actually be punished. It seems unlikely once they find out [[spoiler: she murdered her family with pencils]].

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:After spending the entire first season causing problems for Carly and indirectly the rest of the team, domestic abuser Jeff gets his comeuppance through his one decent act, shooting a Traveler who was trying to kill Carly only to have her abandon him to what looks like he just killed an innocent teenager.]]

* TheWorldIsJustAwesome: It becomes a common sight of travelers arriving and being marveled by how alive, green and beautiful the earth is, looking at roadside trees in amazement, tasting the most normal food ever, and wondering at living animals. Before [[spoiler: what they think is]] the final mission, a critically important [[TheCavalry back up team]] arrives late ''because they stopped to look at a dog'' -- apparently having never seen one before.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Original Marcy's disability is described as a "congenital underdevelopment of her brain" which, despite being a meaningful diagnosis, could refer to any of dozens of disorders.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Original Marcy's disability is described as a "congenital underdevelopment of her brain" which, despite being a meaningful diagnosis, could refer to any of dozens of disorders. Even after this, the Traveler who takes over possibly has something as well, since she's very surprised at David's reaction upon finding her performing minor surgery on herself, acting like this is perfectly normal.



* CaliforniaDoubling: Well, UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}} doubling for some US city in the Pacific Northwest.



* DisposableSexWorker: One man kills a number of cam girls when he bombs their building for revenge when they stop him contacting one he'd been obsessed with, claiming it's God's will. Pinnock later gets disgusted when the state cuts a deal to get him life with a chance of parole, rather than life without parole or death, thinking it's because they don't think such victims matter. [[spoiler: It's actually because he's become a Traveler.]]



* HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath: After [[spoiler: successfully completing their final mission, and not disappearing due to a temporal paradox]], they come to realize that they must live their host's lives indefinitely. They don't take it too well. [[spoiler: It doesn't help that their hallucinating badly due to an antitoxin's side effects]].
* HeroicSuicide: Gleason attempts what seems like one from his perspective, trying to shoot himself so he is not taken over and forced to set a bomb off. [[spoiler: It's actually powering a device which will save the world from disaster, but he doesn't know that.]] He's out of bullets though, so this fails.



* HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath: After [[spoiler: succesfuly completing their final mission, and not dissappearing due to a temporal paradox]], they come to realize that they must live their host's lives indefinately. They don't take it too well. [[spoiler: It doesn't help that their hallucinating badly due to an antitoxin's side effects]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: It comes with the territory given that these are moral people being forced to do [[BlueAndOrangeMorality immoral/amoral things]] [[TheNeedsOfTheMany in pursuit of a far greater good.]] The true hypocrisy may vary wildly depending on a lot of unknown factors but some particular points do get explicitly pointed out.

The show is notable for being created by [[Franchise/StargateVerse Brad Wright]] and starring a not-quite ProductionPosse of several people who worked on ''Series/StargateSG1'' and its many spinoffs (the final episode being directed by none other than Creator/AmandaTapping) sharing some of the writers, directors and producers. It is also surprisingly original in its execution of the sci-fi tropes, taking several already seen concepts (many of them already shown in Franchise/StargateVerse) and giving them unique new twist, or analyzing them from new perspectives.
A second season was greenlit early february and scheduled to begin in shooting in march.

* BlatantLies: The Travelers use information from online databases to choose their hosts. However, some of those records end up being false. Marcy's mental disability is missed because Marcy's online profile is entirely made up as a wish-fulfillment exercise thought up by David. Trevor's addiction is missed because his family arranged for the official records to state that he died using drugs for the first time rather than that he was a long-time junkie.
