* NaughtyTentacles: Horadrim in human form can still further reshape their human form to extrude tentacles for various purposes, from snaking under closed doors and unlock them from the other side, to sexual purposes in one memorable and {{squick}}-inducing shower scene.

* DoomsdayDevice: The 3D weapon, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: A Dooms Day Device, a weapon that can cause a sun to go supernova. Used to end the Vin Shriak War in backstory, conveniently offscreen. Weapons capable of destroying a planet are depressingly common, mostly involving Kinetic Interdiction Strikes by starships moving at near light speed or gigantic asteroids plucked out of orbit and dropped on an enemy world.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Herbert Gergenstein, to all outward appearances a [[{{Nerds}} nerdy]] low-power mage and failed Tech Infantry soldier serving out the rest of his term of service in the Fleet, but who in actuality is a very powerful mage and an undercover agent for Internal Security. Later, Lwan Eddington hides as Tiller, a mercenary working for James Welthammer.

* SuperSoldiers: The Tech Infantry is an entire ''army'' of these, with werewolves, vampires, and mages in PoweredArmor. But that's not enough for the Federation. No, they have to have multiple secret projects to create even MORE powerful SuperSoldiers, or convert [[Muggles ordinary humans]] into magic-users.

* Mauve Shirt: Herbert Gergenstein and Nirav Patel started off as bridge officers, just a name given to the voice reporting range to the enemy fleet. One ended up head of Internal Security, the other Grand Fleet Admiral and savior of humanity against the Vin Shriak.
