    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Goof: The episode's title is supposed be a reference to the Latin phrase "una salus victis nullam sperare salutem", but "victis" is spelled as "victus", making the phrase nonsense.

      • The motto of the High Guard Argosy Special Operations is "una salus victis nullam sperare salutem", which translates as "the only safety for the conquered is to hope for no safety."

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Cuchulain: Until now, all I cared about was Tyr, and what he stole from us. Now, I care very much about you.
        Dylan: Well, you see, that's what the universe needs more people caring for each other. Have a good trip out!

      • Harper: Yeah, well, I don't feel very lucky. In fact, I feel like a big, old can of unluck that's just about to open up on someone.

      • Parvati Quechua: (upon finishing the repairs on her ship) It's time. I've enjoyed talking to you, Beka. I won't insult you by asking for your surrender. If you want, I can relay any last messages you have to your friends or family. Is there anything you'd like to say to them?
        Beka: Yes. I'm sorry. (she fires at the Nietzchean and blows up her ship)

      • Tyr: Well, we might let God sort them out, but someone told me he was dead. (laughs)
        Dylan: That Nietzsche, what a comedian!

      • Tyr: You're right. This might have been easier had we been able to follow your plan.
        Dylan: Damn! That was almost an apology!
        Tyr: It was nothing of the sort.

      • Parvati Quechua: You're not so bad, as far as kludges go. I have to admit, I like you, I really do.
        Beka: Enough not to kill me?
        Quechua: Well, no, but I promise to feel bad about it after.

      • Harper: On my mark- attack pattern 'Last Act of Freakin' Defiance!'

      • Beka: The Eureka Maru, proudly saving your ass since AFC 291.

      • Maru Computer: Warning, specified proximity exceeds safety margin.
        Beka: Override safety protocols, authorization code: 'Shut up and do what I tell you!'
        Maru Computer: Authorization accepted.

      • Dylan: I can't see them, but sensors insist there's a squad down there.
        Tyr: We've got two options: One, a frontal assault.
        Dylan: And two?
        Tyr: Sprout wings, make ourselves invisible with a pocket full of pixie dust and fly inside.
        Dylan: I don't know about the pixie dust part, but flying- that's not bad.
        Tyr: It was a joke.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Athena:

        The Nietzschean woman says that her mother would "have you believe she sprang fully formed from the head of Drago himself". This is an allusion to the Greek myth of the goddess Athena emerging from the head of Zeus, likewise an adult.

      • Tyr: Well. We might let God sort them out, but (laughing) someone told me he was dead.

        This is an allusion to the famous statement "God is dead" by Friedrich Nietzsche, which appears prominently in The Gay Science and Thus Spoke Zarathustra
