Deslar's Pet the Dog moment in episode 8. Shultz and his crew of second-class Gamilas have just died fighting the Yamato, their direct superior Goer is trying to blame them for the failure of the operation (planned by Deslar himself), and Deslar replies by cutting off communications with Goer and ordering that Shultz and his men are promoted two ranks posthumously (incidentally making Shultz of higher rank than Goer) and their families made honorary citizens (of higher social position than pureblooded Gamilas), and puts the blame of the failure on the Yamatobeing just that good.
In episode 17 many of the crew are discussing about Yuki being Human or Iskandarian, with the latter being considered bad. Upon hearing such a discussion, Shima butt in, stating that they had better things to do during a mission and making clear he doesn't care: Yuki is Yuki.
Redof Hyss, Vice President of the Empire, gets one in Episode 23. The Gamillan palace is about to be evacuated because Desler is making a Colony Drop on it and the surrounding city. Hilde Shultz, the daughter of the above, gets trampled down in the surrounding chaos. Hyss, while fleeing, sees this and picks her up. The second highest man of the Gamillan Empire stops and picks up a servant girl and carries her out. Its just a beautiful moment showing that while they are the enemies, not all the higher ups in the empire are evil.
