** Starts out as a pretty hard type 5. The technology on the research station could all conceivably exist based on our current technology, and the depiction of Mars is based on what modern science tells us about the planet. [=LEVi=] might stretch the limits of what we know our current tech can do, depending on how advanced his AI was, but that's about it. In some respects, this remains the case; the temperature, atmosphere and water in the cavern are subsequently attributed to geothermal vents, for example, so the jury's still out on this one.

* BeneathTheEarth: Most of the story is set in a complex system of partly flooded caverns beneath Mars' surface, [[spoiler:which are still inhabited by a variety of Martian organisms and OrganicTechnology]].



* BodyHorror: First, Mike gets a compound fracture to his femur. Then [[spoiler: said femur gets some weird parasitic growth that appears to have a mind of its own. Now there's [[FesteringFungus something]] on Mike's face... something that seems to be living, and ''stuck.'']]

'' Downplayed later on when it turns out that these turn out to be largely beneficent changes -- the thing in his leg, for instance, helps him breathe underwater while acting as an organic split for his broken leg -- but it doesn't detract from the underling sight of a flower-like fleshy growth spiraling from his leg while shelf fungi cover half his face.]]

* UsefulNotes/{{Mars}}: The setting, apart from flashbacks on Earth.



* OrganicTechnology: [[spoiler: The basis for the ancient Martian civilization. It currently exists as/maintains a pocket of life under the martian surface. At first glance it is indistinguishable from a naturally evolved ecosystem or organism. Mike appears to have some growing on him that's somehow allowing him to breath the atmosphere, a martian resident describes this as about as disturbing as seeing someone with "a toaster fused to their face".]]
* ParentalAbandonment: It is revealed [[spoiler: Bex is part of the "First Wave Initiative", meaning she is a permanent colonist on Mars. This is in spite of the fact that she has a husband and young children back on Earth. Mike calls her out on this during his FreakOut.]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Mike [[spoiler: rather cruelly rips into Bex when he finds out she left her family on Earth to become a permanent colonist on Mars. His treatment towards Bex doesn't improve one bit as the two reunite after a caving accident, mainly due to Mike stumbling across Bex having killed his friend Kallakore in a desperation for food.]]
** Bex, after tbe events where [[spoiler: Kallakore returns to life, Mike and Bex reunites, and the Processor goes rogue and attacks Mike and Bex]], finally has enough of Mike's critical behaviour and calls him out, forcing Mike to rethink his stance on Bex.
