** Between missions, Levi tells a story about how he tested his Kentauroi's afterburners while the fighter [[DidntThinkThisThrough is still clamped to the docking bay]], and recalls Simms chewing him out about it. [[CassandraTruth Everybody calls bullshit]], because what idiot would do something so stupid? Not to be beaten, he concludes the story by beginning to apologize to a nearby sleeping Simms, [[NonSequiturThud causing her to start ranting at him again at the top of her lungs, still asleep, then promptly wake up by falling out of bed.]]

** Act 1 contains Delenda Est, which goes from a triumphant victory [[spoiler: to a straight up slaughter]].


Added DiffLines:

*** Most pilots die with dignity, or confusion. In Delenda Est, [[spoiler: if he gets killed, Levi straight up screams for help]].

-->'''Indus''': That's impossible. The ''Atreus'' was engaged near Luna five minutes ago. He can't jump like that, he'll wreck his reactor, blow his own ship's guts out.\\
'''Brie''': So it's true, what they say. He's insane.\\
'''Simms''': Not insane. Reckless, relentless, and lucky. He's a gentleman psychopath.

** Also, ''Delenda Est'' to an extent, mainly because a [[http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=80146.0 leading amount of factors]] made it UnwinnableByMistake, [[spoiler: even though it's supposed to be [[UnWinnableByDesign failed in]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption the first place]].]] ([[http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=82080.0 That bug was shortly patched.]]) It doesn't help that you most often notice this during or shortly after an incredibly frustrating sequence where [[spoiler: you have to destroy all 4 main beams of two Deimos corvettes (which have the second-best anti-fighter defences of any FS2 capital ship), both of which are parked next to a number of Aeolus cruisers (which have the best anti-fighter defences of any FS2 capital ship). To make matters worse, the beams are small, hard to see, can only be fired at from a few positions and they are only 4 of the 8 beam cannons on the ship (destroying the other 4 doesn't really help, and there's no way to tell which is which other than placement).]]

The ''Complete'' version mitigates the placement issue by assigning a hotkey to the turrets.]]

*** With the addition of voice actors, this particular battle gets even more horrifying: several ship captain's last words are cut off mid-sentence by the sound of a beam cannon breaching their ship's hull.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The true objectives and motives of both the Vishnans and the Shivans drive the greatest mysteries of the plot. And there's no guarantee that any information that's been given about either one of them is true or not. At one point, the same conversation is shown to the human characters twice, once by the Vishnans, and once by the Shivans. The dialogue was completely different, though thematically and topically similar.

** Two missions in Act 3, first is ''Everything is Permitted'' which is a StealthMission where there are seemingly many possible ways to complete the mission and the game doesn't directly tell you how. The other is ''Her Finest Hour'', in which there are so many secondary objectives that can get players overwhelmed, and so many buttons to press. In both cases however, these are more [[GuideDangIt confusing]] than NintendoHard. They're the kind of missions that depend more on note-taking and precise tactical micromanagement rather than piloting skill.
