Added DiffLines:

* WackyWaysideTribe: Entire planets of them. Aldebaran's eighth planet, the Empty Planet and Sheshineru have nothing to do with the main plot whatsoever (except being first brought up by Dr. Verkhovtsev). To a lesser extent, Arcturus Minor the scouts from its base do provide a clue related to the Three Captains, but it's not crucial. There is a reason all of this got AdaptedOut from the movie.


* LateArrivalSpoiler: There is a reason why this book is recommended as one of the first to be read in the ''Alice'' cycle. If you have read the later books, such as ''One Hundred Years Ahead'' or ''A Million Adventures'', [[spoiler:it will hardly take you long to figure out why Dr. Verkhovtsev takes turns being NotHimself]].

Added DiffLines:

* RewatchBonus: When Seleznyov meets Dr. Verkhovtsev on Bluk, he notes, among other things, that the latter seems to be even thinner than he remembers him. [[spoiler:You realize the significance of it when you know it's not the same Dr. Verkhovtsev from the Three Captains' Museum]].

Added DiffLines:

* CoolStarship: The Second Captain's ''Blue Seagull'' has amazingly strong engines and is made of diamond alloy, whatever that is, that renders her invincible to any potential intruders. She is also very beautiful, painted in blue and silver colors.


* FriendToAllLivingThings: Alice gets on wonderfully with all the animals in the collection, from the Govorun to the robotic beasts from Shelezyaka.

* JustFollowingOrders: [[spoiler:Jolly U]] tries to assure everyone he was just an UnwittingPawn in [[spoiler:Rat]]'s hands. Nobody believes it.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringReturnJourney: The voyage from Moon to Medusa takes almost the entire novella. The voyage back takes several small paragraphs.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticFlora: The Third Planet is full of it. There are mirror flowers ([[spoiler:or rather, filming flowers]]), gossiping flowers, fighting flowers, flowers growing in the air, and dozens of others.


* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: The villains need to silence one govorun bird. Their solution? To kill each and every govorun on Bluk they can find, and then to try to destroy the planet's atmosphere. The latter is not just monstrous but useless, since govoruns are able to survive without air. Not to mention that the bird they actually target escapes the massacre.
