* SpellMyNameWithAnS: From Baronh to English by way of Japanese. Varying degrees of research failure and TheyJustDidntCare, depending on whether you're talking about the English anime, manga, or novel releases. As noted in CotS's entry on the trope page, the information on Baronh ''is'' out there -- [[ShownTheirWork Morioka was very thorough]] in his ConLang creation. The English phonetic spellings (like "Lafiel" as opposed to "Lamhirh") are sometimes called "American Dialect Baronh" by the fans.

** The non-Abh factions are also down on any other human colonies that used any kind of other genetic modification, even if this had nothing to do with the Abh. One man with tweaked genes for a longer lifespan talks about how he's treated as a second-class citizen and is overzealous in his attempts to prove his loyalty. The United Mankind is even harsh on people who ''dye'' their hair an unnatural shade.

The kicker is, he ''inherited'' those genes: the experiments were done in his grandparent's generation. The United Mankind is even harsh on people who ''dye'' their hair an unnatural shade.

Added DiffLines:

** Actually, it used to be due to physiology, during the infancy of space travel, which is the purpose for which the Abh [[spoiler: were created in the first place]], but now with CasualInterstellarTravel, it is very much racism/classism.

* FantasticRacism: Abh and Humans. Considering that 'abh' can mean either 'part of the Human Abh Empore' ''in addition to'' 'part of the abh genetic race' this can get complicated.

** Subverted by the views of the Abh towards "normal" humans, who can become members of the Abh (Jinto/Ghintec being an example) and usually get treated equally. Then double subverted as there are two meanings to "Abh": Abh ''nationality'' and Abh ''genetic traits''. The latter are not required to acquire the former, but all (noble or otherwise title bearing) newborns including descendants of human-born Abh must have both (through pre-natal gene tweaking).Then Zigzagged as the Abh themselves tend to think anyone of the Abh nationality as their kin regardless of their genetics. For instance, they've been shown to assume human-born Abh can stand the same extreme accelerations as genetic Abh. Which they don't. Humans in general and the human nations in particular, on the other hand, squarely define as "Abh" whoever possesses their genetics. They look down on human-born Abh as defectors.

* FantasticRankSystem: The Abh have one. See a unique rank system; commissioned officers are for example collectively known as "flyers" and are divided into two categories, namely "flyer by His/Her Majesty's decree" (general officer) and "flyer by memorial to the trope page for details.throne" (field and junior officers). The specific ranks (with real life naval equivalents in parentheses) are as follows:
** Imperial Grand Admiral (Admiral of the Fleet)
** Admiral of the Star Forces (Admiral of the Fleet)
** High Admiral (Admiral)
** Admiral (Vice Admiral)
** Rear Admiral (Rear Admiral)
** Kilo-Commander (Commodore)
** Hecto-Commander (Captain)

*** Justified in that authentic Baronh spellings would drive anyone but hardcore linguists crazy. "Lamhirh" is most closely pronounced "Lafiel"? It's questionable why authentic latin-alphabet spellings even exist for Baronh, seeing as it has its own alphabet...Then again Japanese has both its own alphabet and authentic latin-alphabet spellings. Presumably it was done to facilitate communication.
