** Ana Bjorgman was a fairly prominent, but ultimately supporting character in the reboot's Hostage Crisis arc. Here, she's the second human POV character to appear.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Celestia, who almost single-handedly shut down Alex in his tirade [[spoiler: while he's threatening Fluttershy]]. Amazingly, [[CrowningMomentofAwesome it worked]].

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Alex, who is even more cool-headed about it than Marcus was. Unlike the original story, however, none of the ponies are driven to a sobbing mess like Celestia and Luna was then, even if they're still horrified by it.

* SchrodingersCanon: A lot of the previous Spectrumverse are in limbo regarding their canon status, though gradually elements of it are being reintroduced. Chapter 4, for example, recanonised ''Starvation'' (with some alterations), while mentions of Stephan Bauer and the Dragons of the East seemingly confirms ''Europe'' and ''Asia'' to have a reboot. Furthermore, it's also suggested that some elements of ''Last Train'' are canon in some form, the aftermath of Adlaborn's destruction seemingly confirms ''Joy to the Worlds'' as recanonised, the mention of Celestia and Luna's childhood in Adlaborn does the same for ''A Sun in Winter'', and Fluffy has confirmed that he's going to be working on a reboot of ''Light Despondent'' - Kraber's appearance supports this.
* SettingUpdate: The story now takes place during Season 3 of the show, instead of between Seasons 2 and 3. However, there are mentions of locations and races only introduced in future seasons. In the first Earth chapter it's confirmed that first contact occured in 2016, setting it firmly in a different timeline compared to the original.

** WordOfGod also states that certain crossover elements have similarly been preemptively cut out. One such case is the GTAV crew.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: Chapter 3, which definitively shows the [[EvilCounterpart Solar Empire]] as the foe fighting to eradicate humanity. While this could count as a LateArrivalSpoiler given the story's reboot status, what makes it a WhamEpisode is ''how'' the reveal is presented.
