** ApocalypseHow/{{Class X-2}}: At the end of the first book, Weaver is given a device of unknown functionality. Using the [[PortalNetwork "Looking Glass" portals]] the device is taken to an uninhabited star system for testing. After the testers return to see the results of the test, they find ''the entire star system'' just plain ''gone''. As noted elsewhere, turns out they were using it wrong.
** ApocalypseHow/{{Class X-3}}: Later books include [[HordeOfAlienLocusts the Dreen]] wanting to devour the entire galaxy.
