Added DiffLines:

* CoolShip: The ''Surprise,'' which was constructed under Felix's supervision. It's a ''Defiant''-class starship with a Colonial FTL drive.


Added DiffLines:

** Twenty Romulans beam over to the ''Galactica''. One survives only because a Vulcan got to him before the Colonials could, with only one person injured on the Colonial's side.


Added DiffLines:

* MacrossMissileMassacre: The ''Galactica'', once upgraded with Federation technology, tends to spam Photon Torpedoes like they're going out of style.


Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: anyone who died after mid-season 3 of Battlestar Galactica, due to meeting the Federation.
** [[spoiler: Thanks to Starbuck, the crew of the ''Valient'' never goes on their suicide mission and are absorbed into Felix's mini-fleet.]]


Added DiffLines:

** ''Going Forward'' has ''plenty'' towards Starfleet, which is viewed as naive, stubborn, and willing to stick their heads in the sand. Scientists are openly dismissive of the colonial FTL drive as "inefficient" and a waste of time, and those who say that Starfleet needs ''actual'' warships are mocked and ridiculed, even after the Borg attack on Wolf 359.

Added DiffLines:

* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "Welcome to Sick Bay. Do you need a bandage?" Spoken by Cottle before he [[LudicrousGibs blows open a Romulan's torso with explosive ammo.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RockBeatsLaser: Hoo boy. When 20 Romulan Centurions (no relation to the Cylon robot) beam onto the ''Galactica'', they expect it to be a cakewalk, as they have disruptors. Only one of them survives the fight, and that's only because one of the Vulcan doctors managed to nerve-pinch one while he was distracted by Doctor Cottle blowing open another Romulan's chest with explosive rounds. Only one injury is reported by the ''Galactica'' crew, and he survives thanks to the doctors on the ''Enterprise.''

** Some paranoia is shown towards human-looking aliens among the Colonial Fleet- which is understandable, given that until recently they had to worry about human-looking ''robots'' that wanted to murder them all in their beds.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: Starbuck can "feel" which pilot candidates will do well or not, and later on, it's revealed that those with Pallamas Indicators have a limited ability to sense one another.]]



* TakeThat: there are a few towards Battlestar Galactica, such as the nepotism that Adama shows or how the Colonials are more violent than starfleet... but for the most part, these are very minor things, and most of them are done from the perspective of a very pacifistic, aethiestic society- the Federation. For the most part, the Federation shows great respect for the Colonials and their troubles, and especially their endurance. In addition, it shows that some of those problems are not because the Colonials are bad people, but in their situation, some of the problems become far more likely. Riker even comments that he wonders if this is what the Federation might have turned out like if the Borg hadn't been stopped in "The Best Of Both Worlds."

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetVictory: The Humanform-Cylons did destroy the Colonies, yes... [[spoiler: but it turns out that they were never in charge at all, the machine-models were. Human-Model Cylons are actually human clones with nanites inside of them, and this revelation getting out leads to the Human-Models getting wiped out by the machine-types. There are currently nine hundred Human-models in existence, their religion was a lie to get them to obey commands by a false god, and even though they can have children, their kids will be assimilated into the federation and not be able to have all the special abilities of the Human-Models (strength, interfacing with machines, resurrection), and ultimately the Human-Models will go extinct.]]

Added DiffLines:

** While Starfleet goes on about the Prime Directive being one of their nobler concepts, more than one Colonial notes that it sounds more like "Stand by while other people die."

* HalfHumanHybrids: Felix and his sisters (well, technically, they're three-quarters human hybrids), as descendants of a PhysicalGod. [[spoiler:As is Kara Thrace]]
* InMediasRes: The story begins with Felix aboard the Enterprise, having a therapy session with Troi.

Thrace, though how far back her ancestry is is unknown.]]
** Due to Pollux IV Life Forms having ''heavily'' interfered in Colonial Society, it's strongly implied that a good deal of the Colonial population has at least ''some'' non-human DNA in its makeup.
* InMediasRes: The story begins with Felix aboard the Enterprise, having a therapy session with Troi. The scenes of how this happened are added to the end of the first story.
* NotSoDifferent: Riker compares Gaeta's situation to being similar to that of his Transporter Clone, Thomas Riker- out of contact with the rest of the Federation for many years, and ending up psychologically damaged as a result.
** Upon seeing the Fleet, Riker also wonders if this is what the Federation could have turned out like had the Borg succeeded in "The Best Of Both Worlds."

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3396972/1/Going_Native Going Native]]'' by Rap541, is a fanfic crossing the reimagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' and ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', in which Felix Gaeta turns out to be a Starfleet officer stranded in the Twelve Colonies by an experiment gone wrong ten years ago, forced to blend in in order to uphold the Prime Directive, and has been quietly directing the Rag-Tag Fleet towards the Federation. When the RTF stumbles onto the Enterprise-D, his secret is revealed, and things get interesting...especially when it's revealed that Felix's grandfather was the god Apollo (as depicted in an episode of the original ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Trek]]'' series (the episode "Who Mourns For Adonis?", specifically)). Features CultureClash, politics, action, romance, and Felix dealing with the consequences of [[TitleDrop going native]].

* AlienNonInterferenceClause: The infamous Prime Directive is brought up a few times, and is a source of anger for Starbuck, who claims that Felix could have pointed them towards Earth or given them Photon Torpedoes.



* DeletedScene: A few chapters depicting the inital meeting between the Enterprise and the Galactica are appended to the first fic.

* GoingNative: Obviously.Obviously, but forms a major plot point- instead of going native out of love for a place, he went native because he had to- and the decisions he's made since then are a source of considerable stress for him, ranging from Prime Directive violations to lying to everyone he swore to protect to his divided loyalties to the Colonies and the Federation.



* OddFriendship: To the suprise of everyone, Starbuck and Reg Barclay get along splendidly. While less remarked on, Doc Cottle gets along great with the Vulcan Dr. T'Kil.
* ProphecyTwist: According to the Scrolls of Apollo, the son of Apollo may be either a savior or a destroyer; most Colonials consider Felix the former, but Starbuck spends most of the story convinved he's the latter.

** Kara's... ''issues'' are given some time in the limelight, and she doesn't come out looking good.

* ActorAllusion: The call-sign Kara bestows on Barclay, "Mad Dog", is an oblique reference to the fact that Barclay's actor had previously played "Howling Mad" Murdock on Series/TheATeam.

* ActorAllusion: The call-sign Kara bestows on Barclay, "Mad Dog", is an oblique reference to the fact that Barclay's actor had previously played "Howling Mad" Murdock on Series/TheATeam. Perhaps a double allusion- while on The A-Team, he co-starred with Dirk Benedict, who played the ''original'' Starbuck.
