* RedShirt: In a clear ShoutOut to the TropeNamer ''Franchise/StarTrek'', the "redheaded" protocol officer Quine is stabbed through the heart on the ''Paradigm'''s first mission, five minutes after landing on the alien planet. It's not until ''after'' Vanderbeam mourns his death that we find out about the BodyBackupDrive.

* RedShirt: Subverted. In a clear ShoutOut to the TropeNamer ''Franchise/StarTrek'', the "redheaded" protocol officer Quine is stabbed through the heart on the ''Paradigm'''s first mission, five minutes after landing on the alien planet. It's not until ''after'' Vanderbeam mourns his death that we find out about the BodyBackupDrive.


Added DiffLines:

** Quine continues to die on subsequent missions, making him a ''recurring'' RedShirt and moving the whole trope into ZigZagged territory.

* UnreliableNarrator: Mr. Jinx's information of his biology is occasionally countered by other Cirbozoids (like not needing their vestigial eyes to see) or himself (being unable to smell as Cirbozoids can only exhale).

* CrackPairing: Deliberately invoked to screw with the future. When Deep Time invades, they're invulnerable so long as they know what the future will be. Holiday decides that the most random and improbable thing to do to mess with the future is to start making out with Cutter right there on the spot. Leads to a possible "LastMinuteHookup".
