* Is it by accident that the fleet has the number 5? "5th fleet" sounds as if the original idea was that the [[Pegasus (TOS)|Pegasus]] was a second survivor of the [[Battle_of_Cimtar|battle of Cimtar]] (the only battle we know in which 5 [[Battlestar_(TOS)|battlestars]] participated); It smells a bit like a late script change that took place after someone mentioned that the battlestars at [[Cimtar]] had all already been named.
 
* It is at least a bit strange that the Colonials did not name their fleets by Colonies (e.g. "Caprican Fleet" or "3rd Caprican Fleet").
