Tropes for the novel:

  • Bad Ass In Distress:
    • Spock and Chekov, as they are threatened with torture as the rebels view the Federation as their enemies as Kirk and the Enterprise try to locate them
  • Single-Biome Planet: Akkalla is mainly a water based planet with very little land.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: The rebels view themselves as freedom fighters against a government that can be viewed as corrupt and out of touch with the public.
