* BondCreatures: Some Korunnai form Force bonds with their akk dogs--large, armored, reptilian wolf-bear-''things''. The bond means the akk trusts its rider completely, is instantly obedient, and they can share senses and orders at the speed of thought, which lends the pair unmatched agility and reaction times. If the human partner dies, though, the akks generally become despondent and/or given to rages, and are usually put down.

Added DiffLines:

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Actually, Stover ''does'' have one. The book includes commentary on the much-maligned 1.2 million clones number (a result of the ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' novelization), with the explanation that, yes, that's roughly one clone for every planet in the Republic, and that most of the fighting is actually being done by member militaries with the clones reserved as an EliteArmy for critical battles.

* NemesisWeapon: Mace Windu notes that the [[{{Vibroweapon}} razor-edged vibroshields]] used by Kar Vastor and his acolytes are a twisted mirror of the Jedi lightsaber; he uses his sword as a shield, while they use their shields as swords.

* FlippingTheBird: Mace does this to a pair of [[DirtyCop dirty cops]] just before [[CurbStompBattle beating the crap out of them]].
-->"I can read your mind," [Mace] said darkly. "You only have three ideas, and all of them are wrong."\\\
"Huh?"\\\
Mace flipped up a thumb. "You think being armed and ruthless means you can do whatever you want." He folded his thumb and flipped up his forefinger. "You think nobody will stand up to you [[DefeatByModesty when they're naked]]." He folded that one again and flipped up the next. "And you think you're going to look inside my bag."

"Just the opposite," Mace said. "Haven't you heard? There's nothing more dangerous than a Jedi who has finally gone sane."\\\
