And Now for Someone Completely Different: Interestingly, the narration jumps not only between different characters (five in total) and places, but even times (mainly Victoria and Julia's respective time frames, but there is one level seen from young Julia's POV).
Cycle of Revenge: As befit its name, the game runs on this. An incredibly short summary: Rebel Leader Daniel is tricked into killing the Emperor Tiberius. He is in turn killed by the Emperor's daughter Victoria. Victoria is hunted down and killed about 6 years later by Daniel's Dragon Jericho...which inspires Victoria's (and Daniel's) daughter Julia to find and kill him. However, Mercury steals that kill from her, so she kills him instead. In process, Julia also finds those originally responsible for the... miscommunication, and kills them too. Good lord.
Dueling Player Characters: Happens often. First is when Victoria fights and kills her lover Daniel after he is tricked into killing her father. Then subverted when Julia chases after Jericho, only to be one-upped by Mercury (who is also a player character) but played straight when she fights and kills Mercury himself.
Reentry Scare: In the end of the game, Julia pulls off an atmospheric reentry protected by nothing but a medium armor and her sheer badass.
The Remnant: As shown in CyberStorm and CyberStorm 2, a handful of Cybrids has survived the events of Starsiege and continually eluded The Empire's hunt for them. Additionally, the manual for Starsiegementions the Metagen, a faction of Cybrids who had come to respect humanity and fought with it during Starsiege. Mercury is simply the natural progression of the Metagen philosophy.
Rescue Romance: Victoria and Daniel's relationship starts with them saving each other's lives.
Robotic Reveal: Imperial general Albrecht is, in fact the Cybrid assassin Mercury.
Time Skip: The storyline flips between the lives of Victoria and Julia, about 20-25 years apart.
Tribal Face Paint: Unique facial markings are worn by the Tribesmen and, ironically, by the anti-Tribal extremist Julia, who is unknowingly a half-Tribal by blood herself.
The Unfought: Julia kills two Dragons in close succession, yet when it comes to killing the actual Big Bad Olivia, the latter promptly hops into an escape pod and runs for it. Granted, Olivia has never displayed any fighting prowess whatsoever, but if she is anything like her little sister, she had to put up a hell of a fight.
Vehicular Combat: There are a few levels where land (jeeps, tanks, etc.) and even air combat are of essence.
You Killed My Father: Julia is after Jericho's head for killing her mom. In front of 10-year-old Julia, no less.
