* FinalSolution: The androids have standing orders to "execute Procedure Seven", the murder of all the human prisoners, once they are no longer needed. At the end, when Prisoner 98843 exposes them, the commandant orders this, but the human prisoners manage to overpower them and escape.

Added DiffLines:

* WastelandElder: The episode features an odd version of this, given that the wasteland is a post-apocalyptic concentration camp run by robots. The prisoners are led by a man known as the Elder. He is executed and replaced by the next oldest prisoner for making speeches about what the outside world used to be like.

* CoolOldGuy: Both Elders, with the first giving a speech to bring hope to the others and remind them of their heritage even at the cost of his life, and the other charging them, swigngin his cane once the riot at the end starts.

* ThemeNaming: Almost all of the former slaves have given names which are derived from Hebrew such as Rebecca, Tali, David, Isaac, Caleb, Ruth and Joshua. This is in keeping with the storyline's resonance with the Literature/BookOfExodus. Exceptions to the theme include Alex and Henry.

Added DiffLines:

* CategoryTraitor: Prisoner 98843 is deemed a traitor when she starts working with the camp staff. It doesn't help that she can't tell them why, and also is given one of their uniforms. They also view the staff in general this way, believing they're humans (not androids).

Added DiffLines:

* KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade: The commandant mentions that in the past some other humans discovered the camp staff were androids, and he killed them to keep this secret.

Added DiffLines:

* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: The androids are, by design, indistinguishable from humans. Indeed, the only thing which sets them apart is a cold, dispassionate attitude, which isn't too out of place in the guards of a labor camp.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: The androids have this-the commandant grabs the sharrak's tentacle and holds it back easily, then actually rips one off with one hand.
