I loved those screen caps of the news paper... or was that pics of an actual prop used?
One change that would happen quicky is a rapid pruning of the language. Any English words that the Destiny crew didn't use would disappear out of the language. And even of the words they used, some of them would have little or no meaning on Novus, some technical terms, and they would fade. words would also change their meaning as the people on Novus repurposed to the words.
Much of the culture would be pared down. For example, they would only know the story of the Trojan War if someone recorded it in the Kino. But they wouldn't record the whole thing, just highlights from memory. Over time, people would flesh out the stories with their own experience, turning the skeleton of the story into something of their own.

I chose the Gate avatar, because it was very difficult to choose between SGU character pictures of someone I'm like and someone I like : >
i'd image the language would change but not as much as if they had contact with another group of people. though i imagine new words would be added to describe the planet, and as people have said old words would seize to exist.
Na, since its a cap, i can do it myself.. but man that was a score getting the prop.
It would be easy to see them NOT attacking every city at once, as depending on where/the size of the city, it would 'show' more of a technicial signature the bigger it was..
Though i wonder if they ever thought to make tunnels, to hide in.
Why wouldn't their be more cities. Our species is social, we're much more likely to live in cities than to be hermits, but we don't all congregate in one city. It probably wouldn't have been too long before people started spreading out and starting new villages.
All plot and no character makes for a dull story... All plot and no character makes for a dull story... All plot and no character makes for a dull story... All plot and no character makes for a dull story...

I think we're forgetting that Novus had recordings of the Destiny crew that survived up until they fled the planet.
It's likely that the language didn't change much because they were able to listen to from the source rather than have it taught and passed down from generation to generation.
Plus maybe they reviered that language since they did say they called them the ancestors!
