* MostAnnoyingSound: The "score" by Evan H. Chen, consisting of a series of repetitive and annoying EarWorm tracks with any sense of harmony or melody sounding like the composer hitting random notes on a keyboard until something resembling music came out. Any and all attempts at sounding exotic and otherworldly fall flat and instead serve as a test of patience. The soundtrack would be more at home with the low-rate video games made in the '90s than a spinoff to one of the most popular sci-fi TV shows in recent history.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Daniel Dae Kim got his break here, having been relegated to 'token' Asian roles in the past. Kim is one of two actors to play both a [[{{Series/Angel}} Wolfram & Hart]] lawyer and a survivor of [[{{Series/Lost}} Oceanic Flight 815]]: The other is Sam Anderson. He currently stars in the ''Hawaii Five-0'' remake.

* RecycledPremise: It's basically ''[[SpaceBattleshipYamato Space Battleship Excalibur]]''. The [[WhatCouldHaveBeen planned five-year arc was going to be]] more like ''Series/BlakesSeven''.

** Back when this actually aired on TV, this troper showed a Galen[=/=]Gideon scene to a friend who was not familiar with the show, was not into slash or familiar with shipping. I asked if I was imagining the HoYay. His response was unequivocal: "It's not your imagination!"

* GrowingTheBeard: Sadly averted. The written but unproduced mid-season episode "To The Ends Of The Earth" would have been to ''Crusade'' what "Signs And Portents" was to ''BabylonFive''.

* HoYay: A fair amount of it between Galen and Gideon over the course of the series. Starting with Galen getting himself in trouble with the order for saving Gideon's life in the first place, and, well, this scene in "The Memory of War" sums up the rest:
