* EarthThatWas: Subverted - it's still there, and doing quite well for itself, but they're [[ColdWar not exactly on friendly terms with the Cooperative]] and, as such, it has been expunged from all commercially-available navigation computers in [=GalCop=] space (meaning that for all practical purposes it might as well not exist).

* FlyingSaucer: Many Thargoid ships are saucer-shaped. Communist police ships from the [=OXPs=] also use saucer designs, probably in reference to RealLife ColdWar paranoid speculations.

* DiscOneNuke: Your starting Cobra Mk 3 is [[WithThisHerring woefully under-equipped]] and upgrading it enough to safely enter even mildly dangerous systems will entail some painful LevelGrinding... but it's quite a valuable ship. Trading it in for the slightly less capable Cobra Mk 1 or similar sacrifices two-thirds of your cargo space (which you'd never be able to use at that stage anyway), a few equipment slots and a bit of speed in return for a large chunk of additional cash with which to purchase some useful upgrades like a bigger gun or [[NitroBoost witchfuel injectors]].



* FanNickname: The game's community has a whole language's worth of slang, jargon, nicknames and euphemisms, many of them carried over from the ''Elite'' fan community. A merchant vessel kitted out for heavy combat, for example, is generally referred to as an 'iron ass'.

'''''[[http://oolite.org Oolite]]''''' is a [[FanRemake fan-made open-source remake]] of the famous WideOpenSandbox space trading game ''VideoGame/{{Elite}}'', first released in the early 2000s. It has been under constant development since then, with new versions released every few months. It is unusal in that both the game itself and the established backstory and canon are mainly fan-generated; the game is designed to be easy to modify and expand, and literally ''hundreds'' of 'Oolite Expansion Packs' (or '[=OXPs=]') can be found on the site's wiki, which do everything from change the graphics slightly to add entirely new ships, stations, missions, AI types, gameplay elements, etc. The vast majority of them have been incorporated into the game's official canon, combining with the original {{Elite}} backstory to create a rich and expansive sci-fi universe that is constantly growing and changing.

* AdventureFriendlyWorld: Of the "Maximize Setting Fluff" variety. The Galactic Cooperative of Worlds is a multi-system alliance which regulates trade and traffic between star systems, but each individual member world runs its government completely independently. It's also implied that [=GalCoop=] has overstretched itself trying to fight the Thargoids, so it uses the Elite Ratings and the [[BountyHunter bounty system]] to encourage spacers to police themselves.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Thargoids. Their entire purpose seems to be to terrorize the locals. They and Galcoop are engaged in an ongoing war.

* ScaryDogmaticAliens: The Thargoids. They're incomprehensible[[hottip:*:and they find humanity equally so; on being destroyed they get to shriek out a curse before dying, but while the words are meaningful, the sentence is... bizarre]], technologically superior, and the only thing they want is to kill everybody else. Hey, allegedly they have even their fear-glands surgically removed.

* TheBattlestar: The Galactic Cooperative Navy's '[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Behemoth]]' class warships, massive vessels that function as flagships for [=GalNavy=] task forces, carry large fighter complements, are [[MoreDakka bristling with guns]], and even have full-service repair and refit yards. They were designed for fighting the forces of the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Thargoids]] and the [[HumansAreBastards Galactic]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Federation]], but [[MundaneUtility they're extremely effective at dealing with pirates and smugglers as well]], as they're effectively unkillable by a single civilian spacecraft, now matter how well-equipped it is.
