** The Sentinel Alliance doesn't like the Citadel Council, though, for their handling of the Relay War. When the conflict was only between the humans and the turians, the Citadel (in the Alliance's eyes) did nothing to try to halt the war so long as the turians were "punishing an upstart race." But as soon as the rest of the Alliance took to the field in an invasion of a turian colony, the Citadel scrambled diplomats to try to secure a peace with this new interstellar coalition of species. This unfortunately gave the Citadel the appearance of a callous and uncaring group of bureaucrats to the Sentinels and is one of the reasons for the Cold War between them. Not helping their case is that one of their stated reasoning behind starting negotiations when the rest of the Sentinels Alliance took to the field was because since the humans were cooperating with different alien species, they could in fact, be reasoned with, instead of being ruthless barbarians like they though we were due to misidentifying humanity for old School Zentraedi due to using similar tech bases. And to add insult to injury, they never bothered to verify the accuracy of the intel from the Turian Hierarchy for themselves, who would later take it as a matter of pride to win the war and couldn't really be trusted to be objective anymore.

* HoldingBackThePlebotinum: Something always keeps happening that delays the adjustments and upgrades of Shepard's personal Veritech, which in turn, delays it getting deployed.

* DeusExMachina: Invoked by Corporal Dennis Nicholson in "Blue and Red," where he lists his options for what the humans could do after the Turians breached the Fold-Comm relay as "Fight to the death, surrender, or be saved by something ridiculously improbable that no one could ever predict. [[LampshadeHanging Hey, given some of the weird shit that happened in the Robotech Wars, that was a perfectly valid possibility.]]" [[spoiler: They surrendered instead.]]

** During the Battle of Shanxi, two ''extremely'' old Tomahawk Destroids are capable of routing a Turian force for precisely this reason- they were some of Mankind's first destroids, and thus wasn't designed to fight off lasers, plasma guns, or particle weapons, and thus weren't equipped with armor specialized for holding off those types of attacks. What they ''did'' have was armor developed to stop attacks from ''human'' opponents, which at the time meant bullets and other kinetic weapons... which the Turians rely on.

** Surprisingly for a Mass Effect crossover, which have a tendency to stomp on the Turians in the First Contact War in order to show how "Bad Ass" the crossed faction is, this is largely averted in the story. The FCW lasted ''three years'' and ended in a stalemate, and pains are taken to make sure that everyone knows that the Sentinel Alliance is about equal to the Citadel Council in terms of technology.
