* AttackItsWeakPoint: Starbuck points out that while, yes, Colonial machine guns mounted on their Vipers are pretty much useless against the armor the Wolverines use, the glass canopies that said fighters use are not ''nearly'' as tough, and the same goes for the engines. This on top of Raiders and Vipers being much faster and more maneuverable mean that it's quite possible to get shot down and killed, so, as Starbuck says, don't get arrogant. In fact, exploiting this weakness is ''exactly'' how the Cylons manage the kill they do get in their first encounter with Wolverine fighters.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Nike accidentally makes Doral into a monster, who kills both the Cavil Cylons New Circe had in custody, and attempts to rape the Three in custody.

** A explanation to both why the cylons spines glow and how the final five came to be that makes more senses than the show's.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: How convenient that there was a Greek-speaker on the spacecraft intercepting Racetrack's Raptor. On the other hand, the need for interpretation and translation efforts between Caprican/Greek and English is a running effort.

On the other hand, the need for interpretation and translation efforts between Caprican/Greek and English is a running effort.effort, and it is shown that people who ''do'' speak both languages are highly valued and in short supply.



* FragileSpeedster: Compared to Inner Sphere and Clan technology, warships and fighters from the Cylons or Colonies are this. They can't take the sheer firepower that Terran-derrived tech is capable of dishing out, but superior jump drives, maneuverability, and superior kinetic weapons mean that it's not as one-sided as one might imagine.



** One epigraph for a chapter notes that phrases such as "Seyla" and "Frak" are making their way into the parlance of both languages.



* WeakButSkilled: Compared to Inner Sphere and Clan tech, Colonial and Cylon ships come up short in terms of armor and firepower... but their fighters are much faster, their kinetic weapons are better, and they have superior FTL maneuverability, and are used to thinking outside the box in order to defeat their foes.

* AIIsACrapshoot: The reason for the distrust of Nike - Colonials see her as an overgrown Toaster, Wolverine ancestors had to fight through her kind to get to Terra in the Amaris Coup.

* AIIsACrapshoot: The reason for the distrust of Nike - Colonials see her as an overgrown Toaster, Wolverine ancestors had to fight through her kind to get to Terra in the Amaris Coup. Averted for Nike herself- she's loyal to the idea of the Star League, and sees the Wolverines as one of the only groups who still tries to uphold their values.


Added DiffLines:

** Due to not really understanding how human psychology or relations work, Nike accidentally turns Doral into a nightmarish, rapist, serial killer when she unlocks his blocked memories.
* TheDreaded: Nike quickly becomes this due to her ECW capabilities for the Cylons. She also counts as this for the Colonials and the Wolverines, as she's an incredibly powerful Artificially Intelligent Warship.


Added DiffLines:

* RammingAlwaysWorks: Played with. A Heavy Raider piloted by an Eight slams into the side of ''Nike''... but though this damages Nike, it doesn't put her out of commission. Interestingly, what's worse for ''Nike'' is ''not'' the impact, but rather that the Eight survived the crash. When she dies, she resurrects and gives the exact position of ''Nike'' to the Cylons.

* UnfortunateNames: When Geoffrey Cale marries Cally Henderson, Cale's commanding officer chews him out for it, and for saddling the poor girl with a pornstar name. Geoffrey promises said officer an asskicking (that he probably can't deliver, but will die trying) if he doesn't stop talking smack about his wife-to-be, and says that she's decided to go by her full name, Calandra, instead.

* CurbStompBattle: Adama speculates that out that fear of this was why the Cylons used the "Infiltration computer virus" tactic instead of all out war. He points out that a single forty-year-old Battlestar (which was nearly totally decomissioned) was able to fight off modern Basestars on an even footing, and that mark two Vipers (practically antiques) were capable of wiping out whole squadrons of Raiders. He then goes on to say that fleets of the more modern ''Mercury'' class Battlestars, loaded up with the latest model mark seven Vipers, would have done unholy amounts of damage to modern Cylon fleets.

* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Cally Henderson marries Geoffrey Cale. Geoffrey's CO reckons it sounds like a pornstar name, but it's worked around simply by Cally using her full first name, Calandra, instead.
