Infections CAN be caused by viruses (in addition to bacteria, fungi and unicellular parasites).
* AlwaysNight: On Pluto. Justified as, even at its closest approach, Pluto is over ''four billion kilometers'' from the Sun.

* ArtificialGravity: The first time the Roughnecks are on the ''Valley Forge'', they are shown floating around the cabin in zero-g. After that they apparently had gravity carpets installed.

* 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.

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Doc keeps using "virus" and "bacteria" interchangably, along with related terms such as "infection." An infection, by definition, is not caused by a virus, and a virus, by definition, can not be defeated by means of an anti-biotic.

** In the Tesca Campaign, Rico is injured and stuck in a medical People Jar while he screams that he hears Bugs approaching, "...they're coming, they're almost here, can't you hear them!?" The doctor believe he is traumatised from his injuries and plan to classify him as Section Eight, which involves a MindWipe to remove the memory of the traumatic event, thus "killing" that version of Rico. It turns out the tank he is in is conducting sounds from underground, where the Bugs are digging their tunnels.

Minor formatting fixy thing. This new formatting will require some getting used to, but so far seems somewhat improved.
