** It is also mentioned that Kip uses his home chemistry lab to make explosives, ForScience When he accidentally sets fire to the barn, his father just warns him to be more careful. While it is understandable that his father couldn't care less about what society thought, there is no feeling that he needs to keep this secret from the authorities. Of course, in modern times he would be branded a terrorist.

** Turns out [[spoiler:Kip's mom was his dad's smartest student. It's not specified if she was his student when they started the relationship, but even if she wasn't, and it took place in the modern day, a bright young man like Kip would have some concerns about professional ethics until he was assured otherwise. Our Kip is only mildly surprised.]]

* AlienScrappy: Subverted. The Mother Thing is a frightened human's best friend.
** 'Highly advanced' aliens turn out to have secret ulterior motives so often that it's a DeadHorseTrope. How nice to see an 'ancient, wise, elder race' that really ''is'' morally as well as technologically advanced. She's an AllLovingHero... well, tritagonist.

** Then again, Kip also was going to sell his suit. He likely pitched his request in that light, as a fully-refurbished and stocked suit would sell better than the condition he got the thing in.
*** Regardless of that reason, ANY reason that a doctor or pharmacist gives out amphetamines besides medical necessity is illegal and no reputable doctor and pharmacist today would do so.

* ValuesDissonance: The above mentioned Dexidrine that helps Kip jog forty miles across the Lunar surface? It's mentioned that Kip asked a doctor to write prescriptions for dexidrine and other drugs so Kip can legally make his hobby space suit just like the real thing. And the pharmacist fills the prescriptions. A modern doctor and pharmacist caught doing that would lose their licenses and face jail time.
