* WrongGenreSavvy: Jasmine thinks she's in an 1980s Creator/StevenSpielberg alien movie, where the aliens are nice and helpful. Instead she's in a 1990s Creator/RolandEmmerich alien movie, where the aliens are evil and destroy everything.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: David, as in DavidVersusGoliath. In a cast full of military officers and government officials, it's the nerdy Jewish cable guy who finds a clever way to defeat the more powerful enemy's defenses.

* GenerationXerox: Like his step-dad, he grows up to be a fighter pilot. {{Lampshaded}} in the promotional videos, where he states that given his father's accomplishments, his career choice was pretty self-evident.

A variation from the typical trope in that Dylan isn't related by blood to his predecessor.

Added DiffLines:

* OutrankingYourJob: Inverted. Command of an extremely secret military research installation seems like something that would go to someone higher ranking than a Major. In terms of typical US Air Force organization, a Major would be in command of a smaller squadron or a flight, or he'd be in a staff position working for a commander of a larger unit. Rank of leadership becomes further inflated for particularly important or prestigous units. Compare to ''Franchise/StarGate'', where we typically see a Brigadier or Major General commanding a similarly secret but admittedly more active Air Force installation.

* KilledOffScreen: [[spoiler: her death is not shown on-screen, and it's implied the aliens killed her in the bunker. It's revealed in a deleted scene that Landford was originally to be taken to the Queen's ship to be interrogated, and subsequently crushed by the Queen]].
