*The context of the fic makes it extremely likely that the Crichton and Chiana depicted here are ‘just’ other creations of Kaarvok’s ‘twinning’ machine, with the result that the events of the series are still taking place as they did in the original show. This is reinforced when Crichton hears a report of himself, Crais, Aeryn, and others trying to evade a Peacekeeper retrieval squad on Talyn as they were in canon.
**Of course, that translates to a degree of FridgeHorror with the implication that what Furlow picked up from working with this version of Crichton contributed to the death of the Crichton on Talyn when she tried to complete her wormhole research…


* In a moment unique to the 2000 movie, Carpathia ''hisses'' "''Do not. Lie to me!''" in the same breath as accusing his closest allies of being "serpents". A year later -- ''oohhh...''

** Speaking of FridgeHorror, if you're a ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' fan, this series has a metric ton of FridgeHorror, especially since it could have easily been written from [[ShinMegamiTenseiI a Messian]] [[TheFundamentalist perspective as in-universe fiction.]] God as depicted in this series has a LOT in common with [[GodIsEvil YHVH]]. The followers of Lucifer are depicted as depraved degenerates who [[DesignatedVillain have no one worth saving]] [[DefectorFromDecadence unless they see the light]], otherwise [[KillEmAll they die as divine punishment]]. In fact, the ending plays out like the Law ending of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney''.

* Carpathia forces the president of the United States to give him Air Force One mostly because... [[ForTheEvulz he's the Antichrist.]] Except that this shouldn't be possible. For one thing, the president has more than one plane. For another, Air Force One is specifically the ''presidential'' plane - meaning any plane the president is currently on is given the designation. If the president gave Carpathia his plane, it would cease to be Air Force One.

* Much of the [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/slacktivist/ Slactivist's]] [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/slacktivist/category/left-behind/ critique of the series]] consists of FridgeLogic, and a fair amount of FridgeHorror.

* At one point in the story, it is noted that the American militia movement (whom the authors are, as expected, supportive of) is the ONLY force who are opposing the antichrist when he calls for the world to disarm. Not only does this imply that ACTUAL armed insurgency/anti government groups throughout the world who actively fight government forces (Lords Resistance Army, the Taliban, Somalian insurgents, IRA groups to name a few) are suddenly more than happy to disarm when politely asked, but that that these same militia whom the authors like so much are not "true Christians" as not only were they not raptured, but enough remained for them to be a noted power.
