** A Nazi French battleship from the same universe as the above-mentioned sub appears in ''Deadly Shores'' to threaten the Republic in breaking off their ties with the Alliance. It's called the ''Savoie'', and Garrett even recognizes the name. However, there is no RealLife ship matching the name and the time period. The closest match would be the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_battleship_Lorraine Lorraine]]'' or the fourth unfinished ''Bretagne''-class battleship, which was originally ordered by the Greek Navy and was to be christened ''Vasilefs Konstantinos''. After WorldWarOne, the French considered finishing her under the name ''Savoie'' but ultimately scrapped her. The ''Savoie''[='s=] description in the book matches the post-refit design of the ''Lorraine''.

* PuttingOnTheReich: The [[spoiler:Confédération États Souverains from a parallel world, where France and Spain became fascist after WorldWarOne and joined with Italy (as well as Germany as a minor ally), declaring war on the UK, US, and Russia (which never became communist). A large fleet sent by the fascists to take British Egypt was swept up by a squall and taken to the Lemurian/Grik world, where they established the League of Tripoli. As expected, they treat Lemurians as little more than animals]].

* PuppetKing: Governor-Emperor Gerald [=McDonald=] was one to the Honourable New Britain Isles Company until the intervention of the ''Walker'' and her crew. Entirely averted by [[spoiler:his daughter Governor-Empress Rebecca Ann [=McDonald=], despite her young age]]. Kurokawa speculates that [[spoiler:the new Celestial Mother is likely to be one, with General Esshk and the Chooser running the Grik Empire in her stead, in stark contrast with the previous Celestial Mother]].

* LowCultureHighTech: The Grik rarely innovate, preferring to capture and reverse-engineer technology from other factions. [[spoiler:This changes with the influence of the Japanese and, after the Grik-Japanese alliance is broken, General Eshhk ensures that the Grik continue to innovate, having realized the importance of innovation in war]].

** Unfortunately, the same is true for the crew of the ''Amagi'', who manage to help the Grik increase their technical knowledge and tactics. Furthermore, "General of the Sky" Muriname pretty much single-handedly [[spoiler:builds Kurokawa a powerful air force that rivals that of the Alliance]], despite the fact that [[spoiler:the ''Amagi'' was a battlecruiser, not a carrier]].

It's hinted that, even without Kurokawa and his officers, General Esshk has realized the importance of innovation over brute force and will continue to develop the Grik technology and tactics.
