* PostScarcityEconomy: There's Creation Engines producing free food and clothing on every street corner, the Russian member of the Cabal complains that they can no longer control the people by seizing the means of production.
* PretentiousLatinMotto: If the name of the CoolShip wasn't [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antaeus pretentious enough]], the motto is ''Pugio in Averso Belli'' (a dagger used against war).
** [[FridgeBrilliance Works well given the storyline]], though.

Okay, so that pretty much clarifies the premise of this particular RealTimeStrategy game written by WarrenEllis. There are, however, a few things that must be made clear:

* AuthorAppeal: Evil corporations plotting the downfall of an ultimately idealistic world? Nanotechnology used for the good of mankind? Nightmarish organic technology? You can tell this is a WarrenEllis script before you even know he wrote it.

* VideoGameFlamethrowersSuck: Averted. While it is the weapon with the shortest range in the entire game, the flamethrower is very useful. It deals high continuous damage, and it is possible to set both enemy structure and units on fire, which will slowly damage them until destroyed. The flamethrower is particularly effective when coupled with a cloaking device and used for quick surprise attacks on enemy facilities.

It's also the only weapon capable of killing hives in a reasonable timeframe.

* CloningBlues: The excuse given for why you can't simply create five copies of the same guy, thus limiting your autonomous forces to whatever chips you have on hand. It's said that they attempted running multiple copies before, which just made them go berserk since the participants couldn't accept that they were no longer unique. You'd think a little psychological conditioning could take care of such a thing. Then again, given some of their psychological profiles, perhaps these are the only people they could get to willingly sign up for such a program.

* MutuallyExclusivePowerups: You can equip a unit with both a cloaking device and a shield, but the former drains the latter as long as its active, rendering the combination somewhat pointless.

The mission which introduces the Behemoth exploits this, equipping the unit with both a cloak and a shield so you have to sacrifice one for the other.
