* FlingALightIntoTheFuture: Shortly before they went fully pacifist, the Alderaanians loaded all of their weapons into a cruiser called the ''Another Chance'', crewed it with droids, and sent it off into space with a trio of automated frigates to serve as escorts. The intention was that Alderaan could call the cruiser back if the planet ever needed to rearm. Then the planet got blown up. The Alliance eventually found the ''Another Chance'' and one of the frigates around the time of ''TheEmpireStrikesBack''. [[spoiler:The third frigate had become separated from them and returned to Alderaan, where it saved the Rogues' bacon in ''The Bacta War'']].

** It also doesn't hurt that [[spoiler:General Cracken, a member of the Tribunal and Tycho's greatest critic thus far, declares he's known all along that Tycho wasn't the traitor in Rogue Squadron and was using Tycho's trial to draw out the real traitor.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Phannan, to a lesser degree, due to people reacting to his cyborg status as opposed to recognizing his talents as a doctor.

* InsaneTrollLogic: Before Tycho's trial, one person suggests that the reason they are finding so much evisence against him is that Isard wanted him to face justice if he were ever caught spying for her. [[spoiler: Justified in this case, as the prosecuting team knew that Tycho was innocent and were using thr trial to draw out the real traitor.]]

** Both Lara Notsil and Dia Passik get their own breakdowns in ''Iron Fist'': Lara because of the whole double-agent thing, and Dia because of having to shoot Castin Donn (having been ''pretty'' sure he was dead, but not certain). Lara's is more drawn-out, Dia's more immediately catastrophic (to the point of attempting suicide).


Added DiffLines:

** Lara Notsil's breakdown includes having something like three different identities go to war in her head.

** The "''Redemption'' Scenario" in ''Rogue Squadron'' is based on an [[ThatOneLevel infamous level]] in the [[VideoGame/XWing PC game]], which also later appeared in the ''RogueSquadron'' game for the N64.

** Hallis Saper. Her initial stated reasons for wearing "Whitecap" (A 3PO droid's head with her holography equipment inside) were that 3PO droids were found to be reassuring to children. (Whitecap actually provoked other reactions in-universe; Wedge noted the creepiness of the setup.) [[spoiler:It turns out to be a cunning method of disguise; while she wore Whitecap, people paid attention to the droid head and not to Hallis's face. Hallis also had other, more covert methods of disguising her holography equipment, some of which were seen later on]].

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Subverted with Kell. While inside a building during an escape in ''Solo Command'', he notes a metal support column. Face, knowing that Kell's main role is [[StuffBlowingUp Demolitions]], informs Kell that blowing up the building with them inside it is a bad idea. Kell replies that wasn't the idea; he wanted to use the column as a makeshift antenna to signal Rogue Squadron for help.

** Averted. Bail Antilles, the Alderaanian captain killed by Lord Vader in ''ANewHope'', happened to be the former owner of the Wraith's quartermaster, one of the droids aboard ship. He's pleased to be serving another of the same name, though they aren't related, and he hopes he has better luck. It's implied that "Antilles" in ''Franchise/StarWars'' is like "Smith", a rather common last name. For example, there's a Jedi named Jon Antilles (his real name is unknown, with the alias being chosen apparently to be as generic as possible).

* BarBrawl: ''Iron Fist'' features a ZanyScheme where two Wraiths start a bar fight with some off-duty soldiers so that other Wraiths disguised as military police can arrest the drunk and disorderly soldiers, and thus get waved through the gate of their base when they show up at the gate in the role of [=MPs=] escorting the drunken losers of the fight to the provost for punishment. The fact that the Wraiths consider starting a bar fight to be a perfectly sensible way of starting a covert operation says a lot about them.

* BarBrawl: Staged twice in ''Iron Fist'' features Fist''. At the very beginning of the story, Zsinj's operatives start one involving the Wraiths so that other agents posing as [=MPs=] can capture or kill them. This plan is later adapted by the Wraiths into a ZanyScheme where two Wraiths to start a bar fight with some off-duty soldiers Imperials, so that other Wraiths disguised as military police can arrest the drunk and disorderly soldiers, soldiers... and thus get waved through the gate of their base when they show up at the gate in the role guise of [=MPs=] escorting the drunken losers of the fight to the provost for punishment. brig.

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: Castin Donn, established early in ''Iron Fist'' as having a [[FantasticRacism deep-seated loathing of alien species]] due to his upbringing, ultimately meets his end trying to rescue one of the non-human victims of Zsinj's experiments. However, the other Wraiths know only that he was caught after disobeying direct orders not to try and infiltrate Zsinj's flagship.

* HospitalSurprise: Wraith Squadron pilot Garik "Face" Loran is injured pretty badly when his X-wing is screwed up beyond repair by enemy laser fire. His behavior and the little detail we're given as to the exact nature of his injuries lead us to believe he's dying, but then he wakes up in the hospital at the end.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: While the [[SyntheticPlague Krytos plague]] ''severely'' strained the New Republic, it is estimated that the outbreak was not as bad as it could have been due to the fact that the virus debilitates and kills its victims so quickly that its ability to spread person to person among effected species is limited.
