* MightyGlacier: The Y-Wing, emphasis on "Glacier", and B-Wing, emphasis on "Mighty". The Y-Wing is relatively powerful but very slow, and it's outclassed in every way by the B-Wing, which is still slower than the X- or A-wings but noticeably faster and better-armed than the Y-wing, with a larger warhead payload and three ion & laser cannons where the Y-Wing has only two of each.

The Y-Wing is relatively powerful but very slow, and the Alliance's mainstay bomber; it's outclassed in every way by the B-Wing, which is still slower than the X- or A-wings slow, but noticeably with four beam weapons and a generous supply of torpedoes it packs a sizable punch. It can double as a fighter is nothing better is available, but suffers badly when pitted against faster and better-armed than the Y-wing, with a larger warhead payload and three ion & laser cannons where the Y-Wing has only two of each.craft.

* GlassCannon: The TIE Interceptor has twice as many lasers as the more widespread TIE Fighter, but is just as unshielded. This makes it significantly more dangerous when it's pointing at you, but just as much target practice when you're pointing at it.



* LightningBruiser: The [=TIE Advanced=] which starts making its appearance late in the game, it's fast, nimble and shielded; fortunately it appears very sparsely, usually as an Imperial reinforcement should the player decide to linger on a mission.

** The expansion pack's B-Wing has ''much'' heavier armament, heavier shielding ''and'' a significantly faster speed than the Y-Wing it replaces. Its only real downside is the odd placement of the guns which makes it somewhat impractical to target fast moving craft, otherwise it'd be superior gameplay-wise even to the famed X-Wing.

Initially the game lets you fly either an [[JackOfAllStats X-Wing space superiority fighter]], [[MightyGlacier Y-Wing heavy assault fighter]] or [[FragileSpeedster A-Wing high-speed interceptor]]. A later expansion pack adds the B-Wing, which is a vast improvement over the Y-Wing, as well as extra missions rounding the campaign to 50 total and bringing the game up to just before the Battle of Hoth.

* SdrawkcabName: Many freighters are named after Creator/LucasArts [[DuelingGames archrival]] companies back in the day; Nigiro, Arreis, Orcim/Esorp ([[VideoGame/WingCommander Origin]], {{Microprose}}, and Creator/{{Sierra}}). Since freighters are often [[ButtMonkey sitting ducks]] and there is also one called ''Diputs'' (Stupid in reverse) the whole thing seems like a stealth TakeThat.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Feigning sympathy for the Alliance in the aftermath of Yavin, Imperial Overlord Ghorin offers a huge supply of food for the Rebels after their original supply was destroyed, secretly having poisoned the grain he shipped in the hopes of crippling the Alliance. Turns out the Rebels weren't desperate enough to consume their newly acquired foodstuffs without testing it first, a betrayal that would bite Ghorin in the ass much later.


Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Overlord Ghorin attempts to poison the Rebel Alliance with a generous supply of tainted foodstuffs, without the knowledge of the Emperor. The Rebels retaliate by raiding a convoy of healthy grain for themselves while sending their agents to return the poisoned grain to the Empire. [[ForegoneConclusion It doesn't end well for Ghorin when Darth Vader confronts him after the fact.]]

* InterfaceSpoiler: The settings' menu contains dials for the detail level of the Death Star´s surface, this spoils the final 2 missions taking place on its surface.

* CanonForeigner: The Imperial Assault Gunboat fighter made it's debut in this game; it was created specifically to give the Empire a shielded craft that could be equivalent to the more powerful Rebel fighters.
