- Is it by accident that the fleet has the number 5? "5th fleet" sounds as if the original idea was that the Pegasus was a second survivor of the battle of Cimtar (the only battle we know in which 5 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").
