* SpannerInTheWorks: The presence of a squad of the Toughs on bodyguard duty (along with [[spoiler: their advanced ship and tag-along UNS Lieutenant/Captain Sorlie]]) are the only things that keep the plot described below under StagedPopulistUprising from going off without a hitch.

** Schlock deciding to remain behind with Elf during the ship evacuation in ''Mandatory Failure'' terminally derails the Uuplechan plot to [[HeKnowsTooMuch keep everyone silent, including the dead that were about to be revived]].

** When the crew first meets Petey, having dedicated AI systems running a ship is presented as unusual. It has since been established as a galactic norm, and their first ship not having one is an oddity that has been left unexplained. Much later the company acquires another ship of the same class and it ''does'' require one.

Meanwhile the RPG states that organic pilots flat-out don't have the reflexes and calculative ability to pilot warships.

* ClonesArePeopleToo: All clones are considered real people with little debate. The surviving gate clones who were freed were given status as legal individuals, including every Gav, who was duplicated nearly a billion times. There were most likely political ramifications, but this didn't affect the Toughs, so it wasn't expanded on.

There were most likely political ramifications, but this didn't affect the Toughs, so it wasn't expanded on. It was later established that a clone is considered the same person as the original for anything done before cloning, but for anything after that they're separate people. One unlucky gate clone found that the original had been sentenced to multiple death sentences for a crime committed before the cloning.

* AfterTheEnd: While the main setting is generally prosperous (and been around long enough for one ship's AI to see Post Scarcity ''at least'' three times in just the last 600 years alone), [[https://www.schlockmerceneary.com/2016-01-10 a conversation in Eina-Afa]] points out that things don't always stay the same[[note]]with one of the speakers being an unwitting survivor of one such case [[/note]]:

* ViciousCycle: [[spoiler:In the ancient past, various species would invent the Terraport, annoying the Pa'anuuri {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, and get driven to extinction when the Pa'anuuri responded with their GravityMaster abilities. The Gatekeepers were eventually able to fight them to a draw, and they agreed to a treaty, stalling the cycle for a while. But the Pa'anuuri enacted a plan to sneakily wipe out the Milky Way galaxy anyway, resulting in Petey going to war with them.]]
