** Centauri has his share of moments (Robert Preston seems to be having a grand ol' time) and Grig has one or two as well.

* GreaterScopeVillain: The Ko-Dan Emperor is never seen or heard in the film, only being mentioned a couple of times by other characters. However, they provided the armada Xur uses to breach the Frontier and attack Rylos (and presumably gave Kril permission to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness get rid of Xur once his usefulness]] in getting past the Frontier was over).

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Granted, beating a difficult video game is worthy of a high five or two, but when Alex goes for, and beats the Starfighter record, the trailer park acts as if The Beatles just came to town.

* SuperPrototype: The Gunstar that Alex and Grig use is stated to be an "advanced prototype" featuring numerous improvements over the current line of Gunstars, such as better armor, better weapons, and experimental systems such as Death Blossom. Since it was a work-in-progress kept in a separate part of the base from the main hangar, it's also the only Gunstar to survive Xur's sneak attack.

[[spoiler:It also ''breaks down'' after annihilating the armada, and Grig has to hot-wire the life support systems to propulsion in order to get them out of the way of the charging command ship]].

** The distance from Rylos to the Frontier is apparently really short as well, given the brief flight in the Gunstar. Grig says they'll be there in "twenty klicks" and that he'll have a solution to getting past the fighters to hit the command ship before they do. When he finishes speaking, an alarm sounds, and they're at the Frontier.[[note]]By the look on Grig's face, however, it's more likely he made a mistake in distance.[[/note]]

** The running gunfight at the end concludes a few minutes after it started just inside the Frontier with the out-of-control Ko-Dan flagship colliding with Rylos' moon. Either both sides continued to travel at superluminal speeds throughout (which seems unlikely given how long it took the Mothership to close on the stationary Gunstar) or the Frontier really is inside the Rylos system.

[[note]] Logically, as the (only?) military base and primary launch/training platform of the Starfighters, Rylos would be close to the border of an obviously hostile star nation. [[/note]]

** It's even worse in the novel: the spy has a helmet placed over his head, then the helmet ''shrinks'' around the poor guy's head, ''crushing his skull, [[ToThePain slowly]].'' At the end, all that's left of the spy's head is a pointed nub of neck bone.
