** And their criminal records involve such gems like "[[Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace Invented nine ridiculous plans from outer space]]" and "[[ThePhantomMenace Pretended to be a phantom and menaced people]]".

** Arona Daal is basically [[Literature/{{Discworld}} CMOT Dibbler]]. He even uses the 'cutting my own throat' line occasionally. His name comes from Arthur Daley, a similar character from the British TV series ''{{Minder}}''.

* LukeIAmYourFather [[spoiler:Arona Daal]] claims this in the ending sequence. Which is rather odd, when you consider [[spoiler:VAL effectively implies the player's home planet is Earth.]] Most likely a ''StarWars'' parody.
* MatterReplicator In the game any non-living, non-moving mater (no droids) can be replicated, but doing so is less efficient than buying it from a trader or manufacturing it.

* NoBiochemicalBarriers: Used and averted, all aliens breath the same air without complaint and synthetic food can be eaten by all species. However, some species will find certain biodeck environments highly unpleasant and specialist food can cause problems if eaten by some species. There are also diseases that can be caught by any of the aliens races, but hit some races harder than others.

''Startopia'' is a surprisingly complex game, with [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything the developers programming things to happen that the player might not realize]]. An extremely thought-out [[http://www.rakrent.com/rtsc/rtsc_startopia.htm game guide online]] that details many of these, and many of the tropes below.

''Startopia'' is a 2001 simulation game where the player is tasked with the administration of a [[RingWorldPlanet toroidal space station]] in the aftermath of a galactic war. It met mediocre reviews, but became a cult classic. The developer, Mucky Foot, was founded by ex-Creator/{{Bullfrog}} employees.

Added DiffLines:

* HolodeckMalfunction: Less so by malfunction and more by SeriousBusiness. [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Kasvagorians]] take the Holodrome simulations too seriously sometimes and wind up taking a massive hit to their health, sometimes in the rare case in which they can ''die'' inside of the 'drome.

*** Though the shape seems right, the fact that the gravity is relative down, instead of relative outward is not consistent with von Braun.
