* EarthShatteringKaboom: The already unstable Aegis VII explodes when the gravity tethers fail, with the debris heavily damaging the ''O'Bannon''.



* FrameUp: Cho is framed by [=EarthGov=] as a terrorist responsible for the loss of the ''Ishimura'', the ''O'Bannon'', and the Aegis VII colony. She's in no position to argue seeing as it done after [[spoiler:she was lobotomized]].



* GenreBlind: Despite everything she's witnessed about her interrogators, Cho doesn't realize she's in both a horror story ''and'' conspiracy thriller until it's too late.

Added DiffLines:

* IgnoredExpert: Borgas warns Captain Campbell that twelve gravity tethers is no near the amount necessary to hold the planet together and that it's just a matter of time until the planet just straight up explodes. Campbell ignores him and predictably Aegis VII suffers an EarthShatteringKaboom when the twelve tethers prove insufficient for the task.

* AndIMustScream: Stross ends the movie locked in a stasis pod and waiting to be turned into a medical test subject for the [=EarthGov=] marker program. However, this stasis pod appears to keep its victim conscious while their encased, which makes it all the worse for Stross who's claustrophobic.

Added DiffLines:

* FauxAffablyEvil: The Overseer and leader interrogator are polite to their victims, which only adds to the creepiness of their schtick of torturing the truth out of the ''O'Bannon'' survivors. The Overseer even offers Cho a job, [[spoiler:right before having her lobotomized while fully conscious.]]

* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: Cho is given one from the Overseer, who gives her the chance of joining the Earth government conspiracy surrounding the Markers with the obvious implication being she'll be killed otherwise. She unwisely tries to refuse, which goes about as well as you'd expect.



* GenreBlind: Despite everything she's witnessed about her interrogators, Cho doesn't realize she's in both a horror story ''and'' conspiracy thriller until it's too late.



* NoNameGiven: All the Earth government officials are never identified beyond their job assignments, IE the Overseer.



* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Borges]] is unceremoniously executed once they determine he has had no contact with the Marker, and thus is of no further use. [[spoiler:Cho]], on the other hand, gets the unfortunate honor of being useful after that fact is determined, since there were no other potential subjects to examine.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted and played straight. [[spoiler:Kuttner is the first main character to die onscreen, but as the flashbacks show, he wasn't the first main character to be killed in the storyline.]]

'''''Dead Space: Aftermath''''' is a {{direct to video}} {{sequel}} to ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' set in the ''Franchise/DeadSpace'' universe. The movie is told mostly in flashback by the remaining crew of the ''USG O'Bannon'', explaining to the crew of the ''USG Abraxis'' what happened to the rest of the ship.

Following the events of ''[=Dead Space=]'', the crew of the ''O'Bannon'' are sent to Aegis VII to collect [[spoiler:any remaining traces of the Red Marker destroyed by Isaac Clarke]]. A member of the survey team, Nickolas Kuttner, stumbles upon one such shard and is driven mad in short order. Seeing visions of his deceased daughter, Vivian, he accidentally disables one the planetary stabilizers in a misguided attempt to save her. The resulting chain reaction destroys the planet and cripples the ''O'Bannon''. The survey team barely makes it back.

** Also subverted for (very, very, extremely) darkly humorous effect. [[spoiler: At the very end of the film, the interrogator is executed by the overseer in the exact same way Borges was under his hand, complete with an unspoken, casual order given to a nearby security officer.]]
