* FriendshipMoment: When Spock is told Bones is dying, his reaction is simply to arch an eyebrow and allow his hand to linger on Bones' arm a little longer than need be after helping him up. Coming from TheSpock, this may as well be a tearful embrace.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: The Fabrini have their own written language that was considered dead. (Though conveniently enough, Spock can read it.) It's never explained how the Fabrini can speak English, being cut off from any outsiders for centuries.

* GirlOfTheWeek: Natira. Nah, she and Bones don't settle into HappilyEverAfter. Their ending is closer to Rick and Elsa from {{Casablanca}}. Well, they'll always have Yonada.
* [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Get A Migraine Headache From The Revelation]]: The "Instruments of Obedience" causes anyone who finds or tries to find the truth about Yonada to suffer painful headaches.
* HollowWorld: The page quote for that trope is the TitleDrop for this episode.
* JerkassGods: Kirk gives the Oracle the standard "WeComeInPeace" line. The Oracele responds with "Learn what it is to be our enemy." and gives them a severe electric shock for no reason other than a show of power.

* TheissTitillationTheory: Natira wears a backless cut-out toga made of a green-gold satiny material. This contrasts with the psychedelic muumuus the other Fabrini wear. Whatever takes our attention away from those Highlanders meets Hell's Angels outfits the soldiers wear!

* KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge: Natira guards a book that explains everything. Reading it is blaspheme. Just looking at it is an honor reserved only for the High Priestess and her husband.
* LoveAtFirstSight: An insight into the brain of Bones: "OK, I'm gonna be dead in a year, but I'm still gonna protect my friends with my bare hands! So get ready for a knuckle...whoa! Check out the babe in the barely there toga!" Natira falls for our curmudgeony doctor fairly quickly.
