* FunnyMoment: Almost the entirety of "Pirx's Tale". The mission consists of hauling junk for a ludicrously frugal company, the hired crew is a [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits ragtag bunch of misfits]]: most of them is stricken down with mumps for the entirety of the story, the radio operator is a passive-aggressive, alcoholic Mexican, and the engineer, quite a decent guy, really... is a highway engineer who signed up by mistake. The ship is in better shape than the cargo, but [[TheAllegedCar not by much]]. Pirx, completely exhausted, resigns himself to reading sci-fi pulp novels in his bunk, hunting the radio operator's booze stashes, and snarking about it all.

HilariousInHindsight: For the readers. ''Albatross'' was written in 1959. It begins with Pirx sitting on a deck of an enormous, luxurious (space)ship called the ''Titan'' which is uncrashable, musing on the ridicules of high society and admiring a beautiful lady who's traveling first-class. Sounds familiar? The plot shifts to entirely different things in a few pages, though… And the ''Titan'' DOESN'T crash.
