* ActionMom: Pam. She's a divorced mother of two.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Winky.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Lampshaded at least once.
* APlanetNamedZok: Zorgo, the home planet of the Zorgons.
* AppliedPhlebotinum / MisappliedPhlebotinum / JustThinkOfThePotential: Benevolent aliens decide to give humans [[PowerSource an unlimited]] [[PureEnergy energy source]]. Dr. Mel's first thought is how to [[HumansKillWantonly weaponize it.]]
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Brewster, principally.
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Tim Rickard sounds like [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Picard]].
* BangFlagGun: Because of gun control laws, the Death Moon [[http://www.gocomics.com/brewsterrockit/2013/02/20 tries to destroy planet Alderaan]] with a bang flag.
* BigBad: Dirk Raider.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Parodied [[http://www.gocomics.com/brewsterrockit/2013/05/06 May 6, 2013]], when the Superior Four lose their superpowers.
--> '''Irritable Belle (Pam):''' I'm not angry about this.\\
'''Empathy Lad (Winky):''' I don't feel bad for you!\\

* CrushKillDestroy: Killbot's campaign slogan.
* DarthVaderClone: Dirk Raider is a take off of [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]], though the man himself shows up now and again. Dirk Raider has his own stormtroopers and a giant sphere, the [[http://www.gocomics.com/brewsterrockit/2012/12/10 Death Moon]] (that's no moon). Not only is he similar in appearance to Darth Vader (although his helmet is more similar to Boba Fett), he even has a similar backstory to Vader's StartOfDarkness in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''. A notable difference, however, is that Dirk Raider's more of a CardCarryingVillain instead of a complex character.
* DeadTVRemoteGag: Ended in a StableTimeLoop.
* DoesHeHaveABrother: Spoken by Pam of a flattering male-voiced smartphone app.
* DumbIsGood: Maybe not in general, but Brewster reportedly was a much less likable {{Narcissist}} before his brain damage.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Brewster once had a dream where he and other newspaper comics were being threatened by [[RippedFromTheHeadlines a dangerous ink spill]].
* TheMasquerade: No one on Earth knows about the aliens... [[TooDumbToLive somehow]].
* MeetYourEarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Whenever the crew travels into the station's past, the characters are drawn as they were back then.

* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: ''Dr.'' Mel has one. Doubles as a MadScientist.
* NonPoweredCostumedHero: Meet the Superior Four! Irritable Belle (Pam), Empathy Lad (Winky), Captain Hindsight (Cliff), and Short-Attention Span Avenger (Brewster). They wear costumes and claim to have powers, but they merely act their normal ways. Need a hero? Irritable Belle will yell at you, Empathy Lad will feel bad for you, Captain Hindsight will give you a useless hint, and Short-Attention Span Avenger will forget you.
* NoodleImplements: The strips for September 18 and 19 of 2007.
* OnlySaneEmployee: '''Pam'''.
* OnlySaneMan: Pam and occasionally Brewster.

* PlanetOfHats: Planet of the donut people, anyone?
* PingPongNaivete: Brewster is shown to be somewhat competent in his job in some strips and downright idiotic in other strips. This is explained by Pam as being caused by one too many alien abductions, which "swiss-cheesed" his brain, meaning he can be an intellectual leader at one time and a total moron at other times.
* PunnyName: Just about everyone who doesn't have a MeaningfulName. Pamela Mae Snap, Dr. Mel Practice, Cliff Clewless, etc.
* RedShirt: [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Ensign Kenny]]!
* RightHandCat: In several strips, Dr. Mel has a cat.
* ShoutOut[=/=]TheCameo: Numerous ScienceFiction references. Dozens of Franchise/StarTrek {{Shout Out}}s.
* ShownTheirWork: Sunday strips will often focus on Dr. Mel a lecture on the planets and stars, often ending in a GeniusBonus joke. Not surprising, since Tim Rickard is a MENSA member.
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: The standard alien abduction restraining method.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Brewster loves his ham.
* TooDumbToLive: Multiple characters.
* UranusIsShowing: Comes up pretty much whenever the unfortunately named O-Dor of Uranus appears. Certain members of the R.U. Sirius [[HehHehYouSaidX still haven't gotten over it]].
* UselessSpleen: Winky appears to have an endless supply of replacement spleens.
* WorryingForTheWrongReason: Recurring joke. "[Planet Name Here]... Isn't that the planet with the giant poisonous snakes?" "Good heavens, no. Those were all wiped out by the giant poisonous tarantulas."
* ZombieApocalypse: The presumable origin of the Zombie Planet.
