* HumanAliens: Terrans and Sabans have very similar genetic make-up, so they both look roughly the same, even though the former are humans and the latter from another planet than Earth. It's also lampshaded in the prologue. Because of the similarities, both species have a tendency to compare themselves to eachother.

As the days pass, the eleven cadets, each from different cultures, species, and walks of life, must deal with their suspicions of each other as well as the sudden knowledge that the orbit of the spaceship is gradually decaying, rising the on-board temperature as it gets closer and closer to the star. With this rise in temperature, a mysterious sickness begins to spread among the crew as they work to stabilize their orbit and determine who among them is the spy.

** No, but the ship coulb be 'knocked' from a round orbit to an elliptic one due to speed loss (caused by a leak maybe?) . Although the presence of the planet should attract the ship instead, unless the ship is on the edge of the gravitational influence of the planet vs. The blue star...

* FriendOrIdolDecision: [[spoiler: Frol catches the sickness after the students save the ship. Despite Frol's desperate pleas, everyone else agrees to activate the beacon, sacrificing the test and their own dreams to save his life.]]

However, if Frol gained admission into the Cosmo Academy he would be allowed to pick his own gender, which is why he's here. Knu delivers the exposition because his species is similar.
* ILied: [[spoiler: The BigRedButton is supposedly a full forfeit, and will cause everyone to fail the exam. In reality it's fully expected for the test-takers to press the button; they are actually graded on how long it takes them to reach that point, and how they dealt with each crisis that evolve.]]
* SamusIsAGirl: Played with. The other students react this way the first time they see Frol out of his spacesuit, until he corrects them. Later, when another student sees Frol in the shower and notices that he's missing something important, most of the other students conclude that Frol's pulling a SweetPollyOliver until Knu makes TheReveal.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler:Beside the obvious test of ingenuity and survival skills, the exam tests how well would-be students can handle pressure with no outside support. The eleventh examinee is actually a supervisor: he throws everything off-balance right away and performs sabotage throughoutm to pressure the team to press the button. Of course some of the things that go haywire weren't part of the test but the cadets get extra points for those.]]
* TenLittleMurderVictims: [[spoiler:Subverted. No one ends up dying.]]
* TrainingAccident: The vine-sickness was not part of the test. It only happened because one of the explosive charges the crew had to disable at the beginning of the test went off and knocked the ship out of orbit; it then got close enough to the system's sun for the vines to start growing again.
* "WhereAreTheyNow?": In the anime movie adaptation, done in the style made iconic by ''Film/AmericanGraffiti''.
