* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Averted. As a result of breeding with Scandanavian descendents and breeding super-soldiers upwards of two meters in height, those in the Fleet (like Starbuck) who are tall, blonde, and athletic aren't in high demand. Cally, who is petite, short, and brown-haired, on the other hand, is the first to get asked out by a Wolverine. Starbuck even moans that out of all the places in the galaxy they could get rescued by, "They had to find the one planet where Blondes don't have more fun."



* JackOfAllTrades: The view of the Wolverines about Colonial and Cylon ships- both good and bad. They claim that the Colonials had a philosophy of battle that emphasized this with their Battlestars, where they were both Carrier and Aircraft Carrier, and thus wasn't as good at either job. They do note that Battlestars are at least capable of doing both jobs well, just not good as purpose-built warships or carriers. They have the other opinion about the Cylons- that they have Carriers[=/=]Missile Platforms with mass fighter attacks, but are terrible at ''both.''
* JustFollowingOrders: The Wolverines savagely disagree with the Pegasus crew's attempts to pull this, claiming that anyone who gave the sort of orders Cain did should have been put up against a wall and shot by their own soldiers before doing the things they did.

Added DiffLines:

** The Epigraph of chapter 19 starts out as a nearly word-for-word repeat of the original Battlestar Galactica opening.


Added DiffLines:

** The Wolverines claim that the Colonials have an unsettling tendency to discard their laws and principles when the going gets rough. The Colonials fire back that at least ''they'' don't have "Trial by combat" as a legitimate way of settling their problems.


Added DiffLines:

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: One of the big problems the Cylons encounter is that once they ''do'' recover some Inner Sphere technology, they can't read any of the computer systems or even books since they're not in Colonial Greek, but in English... which they can't read. ''Then'' they find Vietnamese writing, and they realize exactly how hard this is going to be.


Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: One again suggests lobotomizing the Raiders, although for a different reason this time.
** One of the SLDF jokingly suggests that if the Colonials were to name the new life-supporting planet they found, it would be named "New Caprica."
** The Cylons find that yes, they can get sick... although thankfully this one can't follow them through resurrection.


Added DiffLines:

** Thanks in part to the defeats suffered at the hands of the SLDF[=/=]Colonial alliance and the attacks of ''Nike'', the Cylons are actually starting to learn how to make proper warships and think tactically.
** Played with. One of the marines finds Doral raping Three... [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil so the marine does the only sensible thing he can think of.]] Unfortunately, while well-intentioned, this means that the Cylons now know where New Circe is.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: [[spoiler: Nike and Gibson's plan for his Trial of Grievance failed to take into account how he was supposed to brake safely.]]
** 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.

* 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.

** 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:

* 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.

* HoldYourHippogriffs: Some Terran phrases get adapted into Colonial-appropriate forms. For example, "viper-Ha'la'tha" is used in place of "fighter mafia".
