!!This novel contains examples of:

* AlienNonInterferenceClause: The usual ''Star Trek'' non-interference directive is mentioned. In fact, the Federation Council chooses to grant an exemption to it so the ''Enterprise'' can visit a planet occupied by a pre-contact society -- a sign of how serious the threat they're facing is.
* BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce: The Sivaoans use the berry of a native bush as a spice. They call it a "tail-kinker" and a favorite prank is to slip a few of the fresh berries into a dish rather than the processed version. Think getting something you think contains a bit of red chili flakes but instead has whole Sichuan peppers in it.
* CatFolk: The Eeiauoans and their relatives the Sivaoans.
* FascinatingEyebrow: Spock's eyebrow technique is lampshaded -- "Eyebrow on stun, Mr. Spock!"
* GodzillaThreshold: It's a sign of how serious the situation is that the Federation Council gives the ''Enterprise'' permission to break the Prime Directive if Kirk judges it necessary to do so.
* NoBiochemicalBarriers: The Federation is threatened by an epidemic that starts with the catlike Eeiauoans but crosses into other species including humans.
* PhotographicMemory: The Sivaoans have this kind of memory. It does turn out to have some shortcomings, one of which is a major plot point.
* SchizoTech: The Sivaoans. [[spoiler:Turns out they were Luddite aesthetics that make up for their lack of a high tech infrastructure with photographic memories, and the related Eeiaoans were a technology-embracing splinter group that was exiled from Sivao.]]
