*ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: [[https://gineipaedia.com/wiki/The_Inquiry_Committee_(episode) Episode 31]] is dedicated to this trope; after successfully putting down a coup, Yang gets put through the wringer by civilian government for trashing the orbital defenses in doing so. He has to ''explain'' that he did it because he was worried the coup would execute the civilian government unless he broke through as fast as possible.

** Probably slipped by unnoticed, but that one scene in Episode 17 got me: when Kircheis and Yang are signing the exchange of [=POW=]s, Kircheis uses a red pen while Yang uses a blue pen as per their hair colour.

** The ''Ulysses'' (Pennant number 913-D) is a standard Alliance battleship with no bells attached. What makes it special is that its career rivals that of most flagships appearing in the series, and it eventually becomes a flagship itself near the end. InUniverse it is regarded as a lucky ship for surviving all of its encounters with the enemy virtually undamaged.

The meat of the story is this: sometime in the 36th century[[note]] The narrative of the main series takes place between January 3596 and July 3601[[/note]], humanity has spread out amongst the stars and has split off into two great superpowers which are now sadly engaged in a decades-long knock-down, drag-out war with each other. Fighting in the forces of the Galactic Empire (whose government is based on 19th century Prussia,) is an ambitious young noble named Reinhard von Müsel, better known by the name granted to him later, Reinhard von Lohengramm. Fighting for the opposing Free Planets Alliance (a government which resembles a crumbling, bloated 20th century democracy,) is Yang Wen-li, an easygoing historian who reluctantly joined the military because he was broke. Together, these two men (both tactical geniuses) are destined to commit great deeds, eventually becoming the series' titular ''Galactic Heroes.''

The story is played very straight and seriously and is crammed with detail. (It's also crammed with [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters characters]], from the big players at the top of the government to the lowly farmers and grunt soldiers at the bottom who get everything done. There's so many, in fact, that each episode always shows a character's name when he first shows up on screen in case you forgot who he was.) At times, this can become confusing--to the point where one really needs a scorecard of some sort to keep all of the character's names and ambitions straight. Also, the pace of the story can be very slow. It's possible to watch an episode where the heroes prepare for an invasion, skip ahead three episodes, and find the heroes ''still'' preparing for that same invasion.

** Prevalent in the earlier seasons in the BluRay edition, due to a digital remastering. It ''did'' fix some of the most off-model shots and botched perspectives, but ended up changing the character design somewhat.

** Somewhat subverted with the Alliance. A good example is Vice Admiral Paetta, Yang's commanding officer at the start of the series. While he looses the few battles he appears in, according to several characters he was by all means a competent officer. The issue, rather, seems to be that he was going up against Reinhard von Lohengramm.

* SuicideMission: The first time Yang Wen-li is sent to capture Iserlohn, it was in fact a suicide mission given by superiors who wanted to get rid of him.

* {{Expy}}: Rudolf von Goldenbaum is a clear Hitler expy.
** Oberstein is arguably an expy of (a loyal and reined-in) [[UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution Maximilian Robespierre]]. The aforementioned loyalty and dedication to country are what keep him from becoming ''just'' like his distant predecessor.
*** Even more so of an Irish revolutionary [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfe_Tone Theobald Wolfe Tone]]. Given Tanaka's massive knowledge of history, that's not improbable.
** The aforementioned Goldenbaum emperor who suddenly abandoned his power and status in order to be with his male lover could be an expy of Lucius Cornelius Sulla.
** Reinhard, Kircheis and the relationship between them bears many striking similarities to that of Alexander the Great with ''his'' [[HeterosexualLifePartners BFF]], Hephaestion. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hephaestion Check it.]]
** Reinhard himself shares many traits with UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte. Not so much with a love for cannons, but rather on his military and political acumen which not only make him both a hero to the Empire and a threat to his superiors. [[spoiler:But also gain enough influence to become Emperor himself.]]
*** Not to mention [[spoiler: Reinhard himself has a scene much akin to Napoleons return to France, in which he lays himself before the betraying troops and tells them only one man can kill him. Feels an awful lot like "Let he who has the heart fire upon his Emperor."]]

** [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale Tropers Have No Sense of Scale]]: when one takes into account the sheer, jaw-dropping ranges battles are generally fought at (between 1 and 20 '''lightseconds'''), you'd find that the third dimension matters less and less. If both sides have more or less identical maneuverability and sensor resolution, any shifts on the Y-axis are bound to be noticed and corrected for. Your ships could gimbal about all they like, but so can the enemy's. And when freakin' ''light'' takes it's sweet ass time schlepping from one end of the battlefield to the other, there's more than enough heads-up to correct for enemy maneuvers. The 3-d fighting we DO see is typically at melee range, where it belongs, otherwise it's just a waste of fuel.
