* Unfortunately, [[InvertedTrope inverted]] by ''Film/Serenity''. While on [[spoiler:Miranda]], the crew finds the [[ApocalypticLog last recording]] of a woman who explains the creation of [[spoiler:the Pax and the Reavers.]] She also explains that "they're trying to break in," and attempts to shoot herself before they do. Sadly, she's a little too slow, although the [[spoiler:Reavers]] do [[GoryDiscretionShot tackle her out of the shot.]]

When he enters the ravine, LaResistance taunt him via loudspeakers, showing they know all about him and his mission. He finds a German outpost and gets on the field telephone to complain to his superior, only for the line to be cut.
