* CriticalResearchFailure: Even in ''this'' fic, there are moments. For instance: Jay Gordon and Alexander might be the only kids with those names on the ship, but it would still help to clarify that they mean Jay Gordon ''Graas''[note]That's [[TheDanza the actor's surname]], which appears on the plaque at the end[/note]and Alexander ''Rozhenko''.

* TheDanza: the name "Flores" was simply the last name of the actress originally portraying the character in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Disaster," presumably since it was a one-time appearance and so there was no need to invent a fully-fictitious name. (Little did they know....)
** The actress, [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0282810/ Erika Flores]], later played Colleen Cooper for the first two-and-a-half seasons of ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'', and appeared in an episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' and of ''[[TheLoveBoat Love Boat: The Next Wave]]''. Coincidentally, her sister is named ''Melissa'' Flores.
** Someone familiar with the fanfic has listed the character on IMDB as Marissa Flores (although this is how it appears at the end of the episode)


Added DiffLines:

* OldShame: Ratliff has since admitted he regrets writing "Time Speeder". Unfortunately, he chose to try to revise it rather than totally erasing it from existence.

** What follows is the monster then being attacked by two of the 24th Century's version of the [[Manga/SailorMoon Sailor Scouts]] (this particular Sailor Mars is a half-Klingon girl). The two scouts (who, like the monster, just appear out of nowhere) vanquish the monster and then leave. Jay and Martin actually [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] the absurd situation after the two Sailor Scouts leave, and of course the whole thing is never mentioned again. Indeed, even in the context of a Ratliff story, this scene was 'way over the top in terms of ridiculousness'.

* {{Squick}}: Exemplified by newly-engaged Marrissa, aged sixteen, bantering with Daddy Picard about being in a hurry to lose her virginity. After which she develops a predilection for skinny-dipping[[hottip:*:And for pushing into the pool any man daring to stare at her]]. Ratliff eventually dropped all pretense and wrote an unabashed pornfic in which young Marrissa meets her male counterpart from another dimension.

* SoBadItsGood: The main reason that ''all'' of Ratliff's Marrissaverse stories have been [[{{MST}} MSTed]]. Some of the regulars at rec.arts.tv.mst3k.misc would sign up to MST his works ''before he even posted them.''

** To be fair, most 16-year-olds ''do'' feel driven to sex. What makes it squicky with Marissa is that Ratliff normally presents a heavy prudishness in his stories.
** Yeah, that, and the whole 'presents the sixteen-year-old having a flirtatious conversation with her ''father'' about sex.' thing, that doesn't help much either.

* MisaimedFandom: AsYouKnow, [[UnwinnableTrainingSimulation the Kobayashi Maru]] exam was a SecretTestOfCharacter to force cadets to learn how to deal with failure. How long they survive is thus completely, utterly meaningless. In ''these'' stories, Marrissa and other Kids' Crew members trade their [[EndlessGame survival times]] in the exam with each other like it's their PowerLevel.
