  • Acting for Two: Hannah John-Kamen plays both Dutch and Aneela, using completely different mannerisms and accents for each character.
  • The Cast Showoff: Thom Allison (Pree) does his own singing on the show, with his cover of 'Wayfaring Stranger' at the ending of 'Reckoning Ball' being the most memorable.
  • Disabled Character, Disabled Actor: Many of the actors playing Hackmods are real-life amputees:
    • Havigan is played by Prince Amponsah, who suffered severe burns over his face and upper body and lost both of his hands and a significant portion of each arm.

    • Miko is played by "bionic pop star" Viktoria Modesta, who suffered a debilitating injury to her left leg at childbirth and had it voluntarily amputated at 20.
    • Averted with Clara and Olli, played by Stephanie Leonidas and Tommie-Amber Pirie respectively, both of whom are able bodied.
  • Dueling Shows: With Dark Matter. Interestingly, fans of both franchises strongly associate their show with that of the other, especially given the similar settings. The are even those within both fandoms who are hoping for a crossover at some point in the future.
  • Hide Your Pregnancy: Mayko Nguyen (Delle Seyah Kendry) was pregnant during Season 3, so she spends a lot of time wearing very full dresses or standing behind tables (when she's not being filmed from only the chest up). The pregnancy was later worked into the script, at which point they stopped trying to disguise it.

  • The Other Darrin: Young Dutch was played by Ava Laferriere in all Season 1 and 2 flashbacks. She was replaced with Jordana Blake for Season 3's 'The Wolf You Feed', in a remake of a flashback that was initially shown in Season 1's 'Enemy Khlyen'.
  • Spiritual Successor: To Firefly. A scifi show with stark contrasts between the lawless, Western-like poor areas and the sterile but highly advanced rich classes, its own slang, and a crew of rogues who uncover a vast conspiracy involving supersoldiers.
