* RetroactivePreparation: The "Memo From Your Future Self" card effectively works like this, instantly negating the last card another player played. The German Chocolate Cake artifact can also be used as a Memo and the image on the card shows it having a postcard attached. Though, WordOfGod says that it is not the postcard but the cake itself, and that the cake is just so good that it distracts the other player from [[TimeTravelTenseTrouble doing what they did were going to]].

* {{CoolStarship Cool Time Machine}}: Two you can get, with different bonuses. One is tiny, the size of a pocket watch. The other is very fast, which in context presumably means you spend less subjective time in hyperspace and more rushing about history altering things.

* MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight: See "Set Right What Once Went Wrong" below; this is what happens from the other guy's perspective when your "Went Right" is their "Went Wrong." The biggest example, though, is probably Squa Tront, who has to ensure that WorldWarIII [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt kills off humanity]] to ensure that his race of superintelligent cockroaches evolves in the far future in order to return home.

* AmericaWinsTheWar: Averted. If the US don't enter WWII, D-Day still happens and the Nazis winning the war is only one of the possible outcomes.

* ShoutOut: To several other time travel stories, including ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' ("Grey's Sports Almanac") and, of course, H. G. Wells' "The Time Machine." Most are found on the identities (like Crazy Joe's post-time line restaurant). The creator keeps a (somewhat incomplete) list [[http://wunderland.com/LooneyLabs/Chrononauts/Mysteries.html#13 here]].
