** Although not expanded in the comic itself, the DAVE drive ([[FasterThanLightTravel FTL drive]]) used to get between star systems is short for "'''D'''angerous '''A'''nd '''V'''ery '''E'''xpensive" drive.
* FurryWebcomic: Somewhat borderline, in that there's only one anthropomorphic character in a human and robot dominated cast, but that doesn't seem to bother much of the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom.

* OctopoidAliens: Sam Starfall is implied to look like an octopus or squid wrapped around a stick figure artificial skeleton under the environment suit that protects him from Earth-like atmospheres, and humans from going insane from looking at him.

* DeathWorld: Earth, by Sam's standards.



* DeliberateValuesDissonance: A major source of humour is how Florence and Sam misinterpret each other.

** After he succeeds at saving the robots from being wiped out, Sam finds that [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2800/fc02768.htm some are less than happy about it]]. Even relatively friendly ones [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2800/fc02771.htm aren't sure that owing him a debt is a good idea]].


Added DiffLines:

** In a later strip, Sam notes that between this and the lack of evolution on his planet (they don't even have ''beetles''! No insects have learned to fly!), a cheaper way to inflict mass extinction on his planet than firing nukes at it would be to drop ant colonies on it.


Added DiffLines:

* StopBeingStereotypical: A variation on the topic; Sam notes that unless his species is given some kind of serious push, they're going to end up becoming extinct through irrelevance comparatively soon. As he observes, Earth's biology has hundreds of millions of years of evolution, and far greater evolutionary challenges, on his own world. Moreover, humanity has reached the stage of planetary terraforming and designing artificial lifeforms, whilst the sqids are just starting to mess around with steam power. If things continue as they have, humans will probably have colonized every planet in the sqids' stellar neighborhood before the sqids have discovered the hula hoop, with the gap between them just continually getting bigger and bigger.
