* Schlock shutting down Kevyn wanting to confiscate his trademark Plasma Cannons:
---> '''Kevyn:'''You're arguing a lot more than you used to, Sergeant. Do these epaulets mean nothing to you?
---> '''Schlock:'''They mean you outrank me. You still don't get shot at enough. So there is a bomb the size of the whole world sitting on an annie-plant and we need to disarm it. And if we screw up, everybody dies. ''Fine.'' We'll take full loadouts of no-heat goober, DT stunners, cold-flash-bangs, and gas grenades, plus stun batons for up-close-and-personal work. But for that unexpected clump of stun-proof, shielded bogeys who plan to kill us before we can get close to our target we ''will'' be bringing the heavy stuff. Just in case. ''Sir.''

* Sanctum Adroit foils a pair of criminals just by ''arriving'' at Eina-Afa. They didn't actually do anything, the crooks just booked it once they realized who was coming to town. Now ''that's'' reputation.

* The Space Station Eina-Afa, aka the Can Full of Sky. That it was created in the first place in-universe is impressive enough (although, as noted in-comic, once you have a story beat about a literal Dyson Shell, engineering achievements lose their luster a bit). But the real credit goes to Howard for coming up with the inside of it, figuring out how the weather systems inside a giant, spinning can of sky might function without use of technobabble or SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale.

** To put that in perspective, the ''Morokweng'' was one of the largest, most powerful ships in the galaxy, with a crew of over 50,000. Tagii took it down in SECONDS, and in the process outsmarted literally everyone else around her.
