* ActorAllusion: Morgan Primus, who is apparently "Number One" from the original Star Trek pilot (played by Majel Barrett). A RunningGag has her constantly compared to ''every'' character Majel Barrett played. And she eventually ends up inside the computer (Barrett also provided the computer voice in modern Trek).
** In ''Stone and Anvil'', Picard is asked if he runs Starfleet Academy. He responds he wouldn't want to run a [[Film/{{X-Men}} school of gifted youngsters]].
* CrazyAwesome: Pretty much what the series thrives on. It combines a Marvel comic book mixture of sci-fi, mythology, fantasy, and Pulp action with a WorldOfSnark GenreSavvy sillinness before merging it with ContinuityPorn ''Star Trek'' fun. It is awesome as well as crazy, not just CrazyAwesome.
* DesignatedVillain: Edward Jellico, until "After the Fall".
* FridgeLogic: Why bother giving [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Hermats]] their own set of [[PronounTrouble pronouns]]? If the pronoun in Hermat language doesn't translate, they're welcome to borrow one from a language whose pronouns are not gendered. [[UsefulNotes/ChineseLanguage Chinese]], for example has ''tā'', which is gendered only when written, and ''then'' only when written in the logograms 他 or 她.
** Pretty sure that hir/xie and already existed as potential genderless pronouns in English before the series was written.
* HolyShitQuotient: Series average of 2 per book. That's not surprising when we consider some of the content: a giant energy being shaped like a flaming bird, which hatches out of a planet and later impregnates a starship; a one-eyed, one-horned, giant purple people eater; a woman who looks like Lwaxana Troi and Christine Chapel, and is immortal...who then dies, except that her consciousness is now inside a starship; a helmsman who regularly sleeps at his post and is part Greek god; a hermaphrodite chief engineer (hir whole species is hermaphroditic) who impregnates a Vulcan, of all people; and a book partially set inside a pocket universe that is, for all intents and purposes, a jellyfish. Basically, the series is one giant MindScrew.
** PeterDavid. That is all.
