* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: A lot of readers of the XWingSeries don't realize that "uglies" (fighters mashed up from parts of different fighters) first appeared in these books, although they are set chronologically later.

It's one of the few EU series to deal with these implications, and to make use of plausible and frankly terrifying superweapons since they are based solely on the LostTechnology of NeglectfulPrecursors twisted to nefarious ends, rather than yet another newly-designed or discovered Imperial project.

Also, the shot that targeted the uninhabited system still had the highest death toll simply because [[spoiler:the power storage battery had been converted into living space in ages past]].

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Once Thrackan [[spoiler:captures the children]], he chooses to turn off the communications jamming (even though he knows this will allow the masterminds being the plot to lower the interdiction field and enter the system) so that [[spoiler:[[IHaveYourWife he can broadcast images of them]] [[{{Blackmail}} to coerce Han and Leia]] [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse into complying with his demands]]]]. The results? Bringing down the communications blackout allows Ossilege to get in touch with [[spoiler:Ackbar]] to set up a BigDamnHeroes fleet; seeing Thrackan [[spoiler:[[ThisIsUnforgivable threaten his own flesh and blood]]]] [[DefectorFromDecadence turns the Corellian system against him]]; Han is galvanized by the broadcast to deliver a ReasonYouSuckSpeech to the Selonian Overden [[TrueCompanions on behalf of Dracmus]], eventually resulting in the latter standing up to the former and instituting a HeelFaceTurn for all of Selonia (and this in turn provides the instruction manual for the repulsor that helps save the day from the Starbuster); and knowing [[spoiler:the children are in danger and will either be held prisoner indefinitely or killed depending on Leia's answer]], Ebrihim and his Aunt Marcha urge an escape...one that ends with the children shooting Thrackan down in the ''Falcon'', his capture, ''and'' the capture of the Drall repulsor. All of this is lampshaded by the chapter names where the events are set in motion: "Casting the Stone" and "The Ripples Spread".

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Corellia, in contrast to its usual Space {{Eagleland}} portrayal, is Space Yugoslavia -- a multi-race polity where one race is politically superior to the others and all sides are involved in acts of genocide as their respective planet strives for independence in the absence of the leader and government that once held them together.

* ArmyOfThievesAndWhores: The Human League is comprised of open drunks and malcontents; none more open than their leader. And one of the brother-rebel groups are apparently ''worse'', [[spoiler:though that group is taken down when Anakin activates the Drall repulsor]].
--> ''In moments of honesty, Thrackan knew his own Human League were not exactly the cream of society. [[DumbMuscle Thugs, most of them]]...\\
But, thugs or not, compared to the Drallists, they were perfect gentlemen and leading scientists, every one of them. ... [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the Human League wouldn't have taken on humans as low-down as the Drallists]]...''.



* ShorterMeansSmarter: The Drall as opposed to the taller Humans and Selonians, though they are a bit on the roly-poly side...



* TrueCompanions: Han invokes this Trope to explain why a Selonian [[LesCollaborateurs Collaborator]] making Dracmus pull a Face Mook Turn are NotSoDifferent from what Thrackan did to him and Leia [[spoiler:kidnap their children]].

* [[spoiler:ThisIsUnforgivable: The general reaction to Thrackan kidnaping Han and Leia's children.]]
--> [[spoiler:But [Thrackan] had paid a price even trying to use [Leia's] kidnapped children against her. ... His attempt at blackmail had no doubt ... turned millions against him ... It must have gained sympathy for Leia - and the New Republic.]]
** [[spoiler:Even his own assault commander was repulsed when, after the children escaped, Thrackan wanted fire control so that the commander could focus on pursuing them.]]
---> [[spoiler:"Do your own dirty work, then, and welcome to it," he said, and switched over gunnery control. "But I never thought I'd met a man who thought it a special point of pride to shoot down his own flesh and blood."]]
