** Jaeger is given some backstory as being disgraced on Earth for stealing data from an academic colleague.
** Varan's son is given a name, Vorn.
** There is a secret passage underneath the Marshal's desk.
** The Marshal is given back story as having come to Skybase as a security guard and worked his way up the ranks, meaning he has no connections on Earth.
