* LostForever: Annoyingly, certain weapon mods. Did you remember to make a blueprint of that limited "planet cracker" plasma cutter you just altered? Have a spare rotator cuff to rebuild it if you made a blueprint copy? ''Enjoy your weaker, smaller line gun if you don't have both.''

** The flagship of the Sovereign Colonies fleet orbiting Tau Volantis is the CMS ''Roanoke''. Roanoke was an English Colony in what is currently North Carolina in the sixteenth century; the colonists all disappeared mysteriously.

** Really, every S.C.A.F. spacefaring vehicle encountered in the game is named after a historical, usually ill-fated explorer, expedition, colony or a combination of all three. One might wonder how is this naming scheme will not doom the fleet to destruction.
