** For that matter, the entire combined Grayson-Manticoran navy's cold fury towards the man is a darkly satisfying CMOA in and of itself. The Masadans were deluding themselves in thinking they ever had a chance to politic their way out of anything. They were dead the minute they touched ''Madrigal'''s crew.



** One has to wonder--is the overwhelming response simply because it's Honor Harrington in danger, or is it at least partially due to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge what happened to their sisters]] on ''Madrigal?''

** Later on, it's expanded even more: Harkness implies that he admitted to [=BuPers=], the department in charge of managing personnel, that he's been hacking their systems for years in order to always be assigned to the same ship as Scotty Tremaine. Not only does [=BuPers=] not penalize him for it, they make a note to never break break up [[HeteroSexualLifePartners Scotty and Harkness.]]

* When Commander Truman has been sent in HMS ''Apollo'' to evacuate the wounded and summon the cavalry, knowing that every day counts, she [[TimTaylorTechnology orders her engineer to remove the hyper generator safety interlocks]] and cuts ''thirty hours'' off her transit to Manticore.

* While we know Manticoran reinforcements are on the way no matter what, the system is still a small and relatively unimportant one. Which means the soft, silent, unnoticed arrival of ''sixteen'' battlecruisers, ''and their assorted escort ships,'' is enough in the middle of an increasingly hopeless battle to trigger cheers in the reader--at least once it's confirmed in the next paragraph that they're Manticore, and not PRH.

** Hibson's actions so impress the Commandant of the Manticoran Marine Corps that when he learns that she wanted to join the Corps when she grew up, he ''personally'' reserved a slot for her at the RMMC academy several years before she could legally apply.

We later discover that Hibson was awarded the Monarch's Cross for Bravery the second highest award for bravery behind the Parliamentary Medal of Valor but is only awarded non-combat situations.

* [[NewMeat Aubrey Wanderman]] spends the beginning of the book being bullied and getting a beating, which makes his CurbStompBattle of the bully after Chief Harkness mentors him ''so'' sweet.

* [[NewMeat Aubrey Wanderman]] spends the beginning of the book being bullied and getting a beating, which beating. Chief Harkness notices this, and takes some steps to help the young petty officer adjust... by bringing him along to the unarmed combat training sessions of the ship's Marines. The horrible beating that Wanderman suffers early in the book only makes his CurbStompBattle of the bully after Chief Harkness mentors him near the end of the book ''so'' sweet.
much sweeter.

* ''Beauty And The Beast'': Lieutenant Karl Alfred Harrington is attending medical school on Beowulf, and has become infatuated with a female student named Allison Chou (unbeknownst to him, she is similarly infatuated with him). When she is kidnapped by a group of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Manpower Inc]] thugs who want to blackmail her brother, Alfred tracks them down to their hideout and [[OneManArmy single-handedly]] launches a rescue. Alfred, who before going to medical school had made [[SergeantRock Platoon Sergeant]] in the Royal Manticoran Marines, and had left the Marines because [[TheBerserker he enjoyed combat far too much]] and didn't like those feelings. It turns out that ass-kicking runs in the family, and that Honor Harrington is most ''definitely'' her father's little girl.

* The Havenites manage to pivot from near total defeat four years ago to rebuild their fleets and reverse engineer the technology that gutted them to make ships that can very nearly go toe to toe with Manticoran ships, which they had always been at a tech disadvantage to. Even better, after [[spoiler:Operation Oyster Bay]], that tech would go on to [[spoiler:save the very people they reverse-engineered it from]] as Haven [[spoiler:rode to Manticore's defense against the Solarian League]], ending with [[spoiler:those two navies standing side by side against the very forces that manipulated them into war in the first place]]. ''Thank you, Shannon Foraker.''

Even though their tech is still less sophisticated, less efficient, and less powerful than Mantie technology, the Havenites ''still'' manage to figure out how to beat the Manties with careful tactical thought.
