YMMV / Clear Skies

  • Crowning Music of Awesome - Even if you hate U2, the use of "Elevation" here is brilliant, as are the other music choices.
    • Mike Oldfield's "Far Above The Clouds" is an excellent accompaniment to the massive gate battle in Episode 2.
    • Again, Mike Oldfield's "The Inner Child" during the ship reveal in CS 3.
  • HSQ:
    • The battle at the gate in Clear Skies 2. An epic space battle, brilliant directing, awesome music, and a microwarpdive on a battleship.
    • The battle in Messoya in Clear Skies 3, starting when the clock strikes hot drop o'clock. Fighters, supercarriers, dreadnoughts, Titans, doomsday beams, and JR and crew maneuvering their battleship through a free-fire zone in ways that would make any capsuleer green with envy. (Rolling a ship to maneuver between the firing turret beams of a dreadnought? Shaking off hostile fighters by flying at full afterburner through a station's superstructure?)
  • Tear Jerker:
    • The sacrifice of the Magellan.
    • Haffa's sacrifice on the Teskanen gate.
  • What an Idiot: At the climax of 2 the Gallente commander defending the Teskanen gate from the rogue fleet clearly knows his mission- stop anyone getting through, especially Clear Skies. But when Haffa jumps in and takes out the tackler that's pinning down Clear Skies, he orders his fleet to "Destroy that widow!" even though Haffa isn't as important as stopping Clear Skies, keeping enough fire off Clear Skies to let them get through..
