* Contemplate for a moment the frustration the Dancers' must have been feeling over the Humans refusal to talk to them in anything but 'baby talk'. It casts a whole new light on the Dancer's insistence on personally returning the Jump Space pioneer's body to 'Kansas' they were trying to demonstrate that they were worthy of being taken seriously - and it seemingly didn't work. Imagine the scene aboard the Dancer ship:

** This would be highly unlikely considering Geary is a firsthand witness to one of the opening engagements of the war. It's unlikely the Alliance could have attacked the Synics and Geary been in the dark about the war long enough for the Syndics to counterattack.

* As shown in the novels, the general idea so far is that the Enigmas may have mislead the Syndicate Worlds into starting the war, making them think that they had their support when they didn't. The war started, they pulled their support and started attacking Syndicate Worlds colonies.

* Why? [[spoiler: Because Aliens, that's why. The Enigmas were wiping out their colonies, seemingly with impunity. Maybe they figured they needed the resources of The Alliance to be able to stand up to them in the long-run.]]

[[WMG: The Syndicate Worlds were larger and had more resources and manpower than The Alliance because they were closer to the galactic core and had more room to expand through colonisation]]
* This is implied in the ''Beyond The Frontier'' series, and could explain why The Alliance was only able to stalemate The Syndics despite their greater military-industrial inefficiency and backstabbing.

colonisation, whereas the Alliance had been boxed in by the Syndics on one side and various small states on the other. This geopolitical set-up is strongly implied in the ''Beyond The Frontier'' series, and could explain why The Alliance was only able to stalemate The Syndics despite their greater lesser military-industrial inefficiency and backstabbing.

* In order to comfort the herd-accustomed bearcows, some system (designed to be always-on or activate in an emergency) generates the sensation of more bear-cows being present. This way, space-bear-cows are kept from going crazy by the 'presence' of a large herd at all times, even if they're the only living bear-cow on the ship (probably not an issue for the superbattleship, but way more important on smaller vessels). This causes the humans on the captured superbattleship to feel the continual presence of bear-cows, which they interpret as ghosts.
