* HellIsThatNoise: In one episode, Rico hears a mysterious and creepy grinding sound while in a [[PeopleJars recovery vat]] after sustaining heavy injuries in battle, a sound no one else can hear. His crew and the medical team working on him all worry about his mental health[[labelnote:*]]to the point that the [=REMFs=] are seriously considering having his ''memory erased'' to treat his "psychosis"[[/labelnote]]. Ultimately, bugs emerge in the base and they realize he could hear them tunneling in because the tank, being bolted to the floor, was amplifying the noise .

* AlwaysNight: On Pluto. Justified as, even at its closest approach, Pluto is over ''four billion kilometers'' from the Sun.

* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Bugs apparently do not respire at all. They are seen surviving without equipment on atmosphere-free Pluto, the methane-atmosphere of Tophet, the not-quite-oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere of Klendathu and the oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere of Earth. They are also seen, on occasion, underwater, although there appear to also be water-specific bugs used for aquatic missions.
