** [[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.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Even though the empire is more modeled after the [[ImperialGermany Second Reich]] rather then the [[NaziGermany Third]], Rudolf von Goldenbaum, the man who made the galaxy-spanning republic into a galaxy-spanning empire, was very much an {{expy}} of AdolfHitler [[RecycledINSPACE in space]]: He became the head of state in a democracy and converted it into an autocracy, was a horrible tyrant and [[SocialDarwinist even adopted the Nazis' policy of killing the physically and mentally disabled]] [[BuryYourGays and gays]].

** The Computer of [[spoiler:the Earth Cult on Earth Julian infiltrated]] seems to use some kind of optical or magneto-optical data storage technology which is still severely anachronistic.

* TwoDSpace:
** It's both played straight and subverted at the same time. On one hand, the ships tend to always move 2-dimensionally. On the other hand, their fleets are so freaking huge that in order to pack them into such small areas (since long-range communication is now impossible due to how advanced EM jamming has become), there are ships flying above and below others, so obviously they CAN move 3-dimensionally.
** There was a battle early on in the series where the Alliance, who were lower in space than the Empire fleet, took advantage of the 3rd dimension in space and attacked the Empire at a 45 degree angle, obliterating the Empire's ships that had only forward-facing guns.
** Author tried to justify it by complicated explanations about how their ships are designed, controlled and managed, but it didn't sound very convincing, really.
** The real justification for the two-dimensional space has to do with the fact that all of the battles and tactics are a direct parallel to 19th century naval warfare. If you throw out the fact that oceans are (for all intents and purposes) flat, the parallel doesn't really work.

* FeudalFuture: The Empire. Justified, since its founder specifically modelled it on Prussia (with a dash of the [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany the Third Reich]]). Reinhard's reforms means that it ceases to be this, however, and more resembles 19th Century Austria crossed with WorldWarI Germany.
