* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: In many other settings, the half-crazed military seed AI fighting a guerrilla war against galactic society would be the bad guy. Here, she's arguably mankinds greatest achievement.

The story opens with the the death of a Compact Chariot at the hands of the first Human Dreadnaught. The Compact is a collection of alien species that seeks to conquer Humanity and absorb them into their ever expanding empire. They outnumber and out-gun Humanity, and their flagships, the Chariots have never been defeated. Nemesis breaks that streak, being the first to slay a Compact Chariot in combat. Despite this Nemesis is nearly crippled and her crew decimated. Oh, and one Compact ship get away with Earth's coordinates.

* ProudWarriorRace: The Tribunes make up the bulk of the Compact's military. The Verrish aren't quite as strong as a tribune, but they're faster, and they're one of the few species that has ever managed to wrangle concessions out of a Compact occupation force, no matter how minor. The Askanj Illth, who make up much of the Principality's military, over half tail and fast, very ''very'' fast.

* ShoutOut: Two characters are named "Usul" and "de Vries," characters from Frank Herbert's Dune.



* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Adrianna Leblanc, literally blue. It's geneticly modified. It's where her moniker 'the blue fire' comes from.

* MookHorrorShow: Any combat sequence involving Nemesis that is not from Red's perspective will be this. She does it on purpose finding enjoyment, and practicality, in destroying the enemy's moral and sanity before finally wiping them out for good.

* HollywoodHacking: Averted. Nemesis can do some really impressive tricks with electronic warfare, but denying her access by hardware means or keeping the lag time high enough that her hacks can be dealt with stops her cold.

* FantasticRacism: And how! The Verrish are officially refereed to as 'Brute' while the Humans are 'Broken'. The Tribunes look down upon conquered species as inferior in every way and dismiss ships like ''Bequeathed'' as PR stunts that give the masses false hope.
