* ValuesDissonance: In-universe, the Empire has a strong dislike of transporter technology, since they believe it kills the user.

* ValuesDissonance: In-universe, the Empire has a strong dislike of transporter technology, since they believe it kills the user. The Federation think of it as no big deal, of course.



* ZergRush: The big reason the Empire wins is that, thanks to its hyperdrive, it can keep its whole fleet together and attack with hundreds or thousands of ships at once while the Federation has a hard time rallying together more than a few dozen at a time. The Federation's best battle is their stand at Earth, which was the only battle in the war where both sides had equal firepower.

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: A major reason the Federation loses is that they can't rally the galaxy together the way they did against the Dominion. The Romulans refuse to be paceful and employ their ChronicBackstabbingDisorder with disastrous results, the Empire approaches the Klingons first and gives them ships and free reign to conquer other territories, the Cardassians and Dominion aren't interested, and the Borg are too stubborn and proud to ally with anyone. Even the Federation member worlds don't take long to turn their back, after a series of {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s and Halsey's abandonment of them.

* ALighterShadeOfBlack: Emperor Solo's new Empire is a few shades lighter than the old one; the Senate still has a degree of power, the racism isn't as obvious, and they're actually willing to negotiate. They still wipe out planets on a daily basis, mind.

* PyrrhicVictory: Picard makes a plea towards this to Halsey when the latter boasts that his fleet can defeat the Empire at Earth, pointing out that at this point, Halsey's method of abandoning member systems to cluster his forces together has made the Federation government so unpopular among its member worlds that they're seceding en masse, and even if he does beat back the Empire, they can just build another fleet, and the Federation can't.

** The Romulans decide to follow up the attack on the wormhole by taking a small flotilla of warbirds through the wormhole. They're greeted by about half the Imperial fleet, and don't survive the first salvo.

* CurbStompCushion: The Federation versus the Empire. They're relatively on par in terms of weapons, which lets Starfleet give the Imperial fleet a bloody nose when fighting ship-to-ship, but the Empire has so many strategic advantages (cross-galactic travel, much greater numbers and manufacturing, access to superweapons, control of the wormhole) that the Federation can win battles but hasn't a prayer in the war.

** Early on, the Enterprise-E faces off against forty Romulan warbirds. It manages to take down several of them, including the flagship, through clever tactics on Picard's part and overconfidence on the Romulan's, but it's so badly outgunned that it has no hope of winning.
