* GoodBadTranslation: A certain DVD release suffers from this. The entirety of Season 2 and some episodes of season 3 are the worst offenders by far. So what if the subtitles don't remember proper punctuation in season 1? And there are no capital letters, except the first in every line, even when not supposed to be there. The subtitles in season 2 are way worse than that, by being translated... from an Asian translation. And they're not even correct most of the time.

* {{Frameup}}: One episode had a conspiracy try to pin an assassination on Tyr. Although Tyr was in fact enraged at the man for something he'd done, the crew doesn't believe it for a minute. Tyr is a professional assassin, and it was far too incompetent and obviously him to be true.

Added DiffLines:

* KnightTemplar: The Templars are a remnant of the High Guard dedicated to taking down the Nietzscheans and restoring the Commonwealth, the Knights of Genetic Purity were a more extreme splinter faction that believed genetic engineering itself was evil.

* Captain Hunt -- TheHero, a human from the now-lost Commonwealth capital on Tarn Vedra (He eventually turns out to be not-quite-human after all: he's a [[HalfHumanHybrid Human-Vedran hybrid]], or rather Human-Paradine: Vedrans who have [[GoalOrientedEvolution become something more]]), and his human half comes from a genetically-enhanced {{Heavyworlder}})

* 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).
