** Alpha Squadron knows a hell of a lot better than the superiors whats going on, to the point where they can regularly ignore orders and are unable to be punished. This means they are forced to take actions that directly violate commands in order to do their duty.

* '''Deconstructed''': It turns out that the direct orders were given for a very good reason: Although the pirate attack was successfully repelled and hundreds were spared, it allowed enemy terrorists to slip past the post Alpha Squadron had abandoned. The total fatalities they caused would later number in the millions. Alpha Squadron is court-martialed and imprisoned as a result...
* '''Reconstructed''': ...however, the weapon developed at the attacked station is later used to defend from an extra-planar attack, and the entire universe is saved. They are then released and hailed as heroes...
* '''Zig Zagged''': Until the terrorists bring him back and destroy it again, or they would except Captain Bill and Beta Squadron kills them, only to be obliterated along with an entire solar system when the dead-switch bomb owned by the terrorist leader goes off, except it turns out that the systemw as only ever inhabited by warring terrorist factions anyway, and Captain Bill had teleported out in time.
