* VestigialEmpire: The Systems Commonwealth, which once spanned a million worlds in three galaxies, is now reduced to a single ship and a few out-of-the-way CargoCult [[CultColony Colonies]].
** The Nietzschean Empire shattered in a big way after Witchhead, with the separate prides going their own way. Large prides like Drago-Kazov and Sabra-Jaguar are still significant intergalactic power-players, but in general the Nietzscheans spend more time jockeying among themselves for power, resources and mating rights than doing anything else. Besides, even if a single leader could re-unite the Nietzscheans, a resurrected Nietzschean Empire would still be a far cry from the force that shattered the Systems Commonwealth.



** Dyan returning to Andromeda to mope that he had accidentally given children access to 80 Nova Bombs in ''To Loose a Fateful Lightning'' instead of ordering them to stand down and surrender control over the weapons to Andromeda. Keep in mind, at this point Dylan knows they revere him as [[MessianicArchetype "The High Guard"]] and would likely ''easily'' have done so. Instead, his inaction causes one heavily populated neighbouring system to be destroyed and only narrowly averts them doing similar kamikaze runs with the rest of the arsenal.

* IdenticalGrandson: "Genetic reincarnation" is a proven phenomenon for Nietzscheans due to their low genetic diversity (caused by having all possible negative mutations or genetic defects removed). Telemachus is played by the same actor as Gaheris and Tyr's son was apparently the reincarnation of the first Nietzschean (and therefore their Messiah). It's lampshaded that the odds of this are still in the millions, but since there are billions of them it still happens often enough.

* IdenticalGrandson: "Genetic reincarnation" is a proven phenomenon for Nietzscheans due to their low genetic diversity (caused by having all possible negative mutations or genetic defects removed).(The original Nietzschean population was only about 8000, the Nietzscheans deliberately stripped their genome of a large number of "genetic defects" such as haemophilia and predispositions for diabetes and various cancers, and breed for [[ProudWarriorRace a very specific set of traits]]). Telemachus is played by the same actor as Gaheris and Tyr's son was apparently the reincarnation of the first Nietzschean (and therefore their Messiah). It's lampshaded that the odds of this are still in the millions, trillions, but since there are billions trillions of them Nietzscheans (with more being born every day) it still happens often enough.



** Nietzscheans tend to give themselves names that are [[BadassBoast Badass Boasts]], like ethnic groups with a warlike reputation [[BadassIsraeli (Sabra)]], military leaders(Guderian) or even [[WarGod War Gods]](Tyr).

Added DiffLines:

** In a meta-sense, the entire Nietzschean race. At the time of the fall of the Commonwealth, the Nietzscheans, intended by their progenitor to be a race of WarriorPoet-[[{{Ubermensch}} Übermenschen]] had, if not reached that level, at least a reasonable claim of striving towards it. By the time the series rolls around three-hundred years later, the intellectual and spiritual aspects of the progenitor's vision have all fallen by the wayside and the Nietzscheans have degenerated into little more than roving bands of [[MoralMyopia morally myopic]] supremacist thugs.

Added DiffLines:

* MySkullRunnethOver: In "Harper 2.0", Harper had a database downloaded into his brain, via the computer port on his neck, and the information made him super smart, and also kind of crazy. Besides speaking dozens of different languages and being terrified of Rev, Harper began and abandoned dozens of projects.

** In one episode, they're trying to get to Tarn Vedra (the lost capital planet of the old Commonwealth) by following a ridiculously complicated sequence of slipstram routes. Several of the steps are jumps between ''different galaxies!'' The lanes were purposefully scrambled this way to keep away the Nietzcheans after the Commonwealth lost the war.

* IAmXSonOfY: The Nietzcheans will give their given name, family name, name of pride, and name of both parents when introducing themselves formally. For example: "I am Tyr Anasazi of Kodiak Pride, out of Victoria by Barbarosa." Considering the importance of lineage to the Nietzscheans, this makes sense.

* HyperspaceLanes: Several star systems are strategically important because you need to travel through them on your way from one slipstream to another. Just the place to lay in ambush, or place a {{BFG}} InSpace.
