** "Eyes" has a brief mention that a far-right party led by Nicholas Chaput was responsible for France seceding from the UsefulNotes/EuropeanUnion. 20 years later it was actually France's traditional frenemy Great Britain that wanted out, led by the right-wingers of the UK Independence Party.



* WhatAnIdiot: The human race. Created a slave race only to have it turn on you? The solution is '''''not''''' to ''create another slave race!'' [[TooDumbToLive Dumbasses.]]
** Also, when an almost unstoppable alien enemy force finally decides to negotiate, you don't get all irrational and emotional, endangering the talks. And you ''especially'' don't allow the negotiator to get killed. Geesh...
*** Even more so when said negotiator outright tells you they know all about your "war ending" battle plan and only entered into talks because it might damage their holy breeding grounds.

** Given Vansen and Damphousse, it's apparent the Marines have opened combat jobs to women in the {{Verse}}. As a side-effect of the UsefulNotes/WarOnTerror, in December 2015 Defense Secretary Ash Carter ordered all combat jobs opened to women starting in 2016, despite resistance from USMC General Joseph Dunford.

* UnfortunateImplications: Wang is the one Asian guy in the squadron. He is often portrayed as being nervous or afraid, is unable to issue a Marine Corps BattleCry during the pilot episode, and is the guy who gives a false confession while being tortured, and later [[spoiler: collaborates with a group of Silicates and secretly gives them some of his squad's sparse and much-needed equipment in order to prevent the confession from being used against him.]] Joel De La Fuente, the actor who played him, complained about this.

* TooGoodToLast
** ScrewedByTheNetwork: Fox actively moved or pre-empted the show on a fairly routine basis, which made it hard to follow.

* HighOctaneNightmareFuel: In one episode, the Chigs are testing a weapon that basically ''weaponizes'' HighOctaneNightmareFuel. It causes your deepest fears to be cranked UpToEleven. The only way the squad is able to escape is by marching in lockstep out of the weapon's area of effect. ''Through a minefield''. It helps them overcome their fears because [[ThePowerOfFriendship they trust each other that much]].
