** Yahtzee of WebVideo/{{ZeroPunctuation}} eloquently summed up the experience, "You could spend all your scrap on fuel and keeping your various bits together, until you're five sectors in facing [[DemonicSpiders triple-shielded dreadnoughts]] with nothing more than [[CherryTapping a bag of dried chickpeas]] and a dustbin lid."

* WinsByDoingAbsolutelyNothing: If you encounter a Rebel scout ship with no shields in an asteroid field, and provided your own ship has functioning shields, it's possible to do nothing and watch as the asteroids blow the scout into pieces. If you have enough shields and evasion, it's possible to win without taking any damage.

If you have enough shields and evasion, it's very possible to win this way without taking any damage.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Averted--you can find reasonable and friendly members of all races. Even some of the rebels aren't too happy with the situation and [[PunchClockVillain are just following orders]]. Perhaps the closest you get are the telepathic ConMan Slugs, who were excluded from the Federation because of their incessant exploitative antics. Even then, individual Slugs may work for the Federation regardless and you do come across the occasional trustworthy one.
