Added DiffLines:

* IncitingIncident: Ned Nova's flight from mission control counts as this. After Ned Nova flees from mission control in order to escape from an enforced retirement; mission control changed their policy on retiring old captains. Captain Star's marooning on the nameless planet is apparently now how they deal with retiring certain captains who are [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BoldExplorer adventurers at heart]].


Added DiffLines:

* ReassignmentBackfire: For whatever reason Captain Star always finds trouble that needs resolving despite being on a barren nameless planet; and sometimes finds himself going back into space to solve it.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Captain Star who is normally dogmatic about following mission control's orders does this to help his old captain Ned Nova. Using technicalities Star reports that Ned Nova is not the man that they found; since Ned Nova would normally be in his 100s yet due to his encasement in worm goo is still around 50-60 years old. Captain Star lets him go to continue adventuring in the stars.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: In ''The Gravity of the Situation'', Star receives a teddy bear which he thinks has his orders, and spends the episode interrogating the stuffed animal, while everyone else assumes it's because the captain is suffering from boredom-induced depression. At the end of the episode when Star cheers up, he throws the bear away, and it turns out the bear was a scout for an alien invasion; so everyone was wrong about the bear, but Star's attempted interrogation was right anyway. The bears then have their own example when the scout tells his commanders that Star is a major {{Badass}} and should be avoided; he's right that Star is a badass, but was wrong in thinking Star was onto them.

* EveryEpisodeEnding: Each episode ends with Captain Star narrating an extremely subdued summary of the episode's event often with some irony peppered on. Captain Star also does this while sitting on his wheelbarrow and gazing at the stars.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Captain Star is a raging egomaniac and seems at times completely oblivious to the events surrounding him. However, he is still the best captain in the fleet. In ''Written In The Stars'', with the planet about the be destroyed and Scarlet depressed that her first tenure as acting captain is going to result in them all dying, she asks for a hint on how to save the day, and he easily points her in the right direction.
* BystanderSyndrome: In ''Written in the Stars'', Captain Star dismisses the planet's imminent destruction because he can go back to space.
