** The Slylandro Probe is always moving at maximum velocity and can't ever slow down. On the other hand, it can reverse its direction of movement instantaneously.

* WeaponsGradeVocabulary: Eternal One's full name is this to Daktaklakpak. It caused extinction of that species, as name is full summary of what Eternal one is, starting with name, the genetic material, so on and on. There is no computing system that can calculate its full name.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The octopus-[[{{Starcraft}} zerg]]-esque monster in the boxart never appears ingame. Some people argue it is the VUX Monster (who just gets text and a distinct monster sprite in the game, but nowhere near as detailed as the box picture); others suggest that it's a very off-model Ur-Quan. In the fan sequel Project6014, [[spoiler:a new major villain race is introduced that uses this portrait, the Lurg]].

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight:
** While the Utwig obsession with the Ultron seems like a ridiculous religious obsession to most other races, once you actually repair it (and, in the backstory, before it was broken) everything they say it tells them turns out to be very important, from not giving the Precursor bomb to the Druuge to specifically attacking only the Kohr-Ah.
** Virtually everything the Pkunk say sounds like lunatic ramblings. Ignore them when they tell you where they got their information... but don't ignore the information itself.

%%* PreexistingEncounters

to:

%%* PreexistingEncounters* PreexistingEncounters: Most battles result when an enemy fleet (readily visible beforehand) makes contact with your flagship. This can happen in planetary systems (where you can see the approaching fleet and its type, but not its strength) and in hyperspace (where all you see is an approaching gravity well, with no indications of precisely what's causing it). In both cases, a fast-enough flagship can maneuver to avoid the encounter altogether. The game also has several set battles, which cannot be avoided in order to finish the game.

* LostForever:
** Certain events can make you lose the ability to build certain ships, such as the Spathi Eluders and Thraddash Torch. You can keep the ones you have in stock, but can't build more.
** It's also possible to sell the Portal Spawner to the Druuge (although you would have to be utterly mad), and to offend some races so thoroughly that you forever lose the option to ally with them. Plot-essential races, though, will shrug off any number of insults.
