!!Homeworld 3

* After 20 years since the first game, 16 years since the sequel, 4 years since the remastered, and 3 years since the prequel, it's '''finally''' been revealed that Homeworld 3 is coming! As of writing this, [[https://www.fig.co/campaigns/homeworld3 fans can even pledge towards supporting the game's development]].

Added DiffLines:

* A small moment in the second mission. After the fleet comes in contact with enemy forces, command carefully analyzes the enemy forces and then calmly states that they are vastly inferior to your own forces. In their first naval engagement, no one panics, no one freaks out, and they just proceed with eliminating the enemy forces.


* The Mothership itself; a gigantic GenerationShip designed for cross galaxy voyage, capable of carrying millions of people, built by the best of the best from all over Kharak, a barren world whose history was riddled with internal strife and civil wars. It was an ultimate culmination of technologies and personnel, made possible only by everyone on the planet putting aside their difference and moved on toward one shared goal.
** In retrospect, a civilization forced to start from scratch with technologies they re-invented on the fly managed to topple a full-fledged empire with massive warship armada. That's one hell of a feat.

* Saving all the cryotrays in the third mission. These are the last remnants of your entire civilization. One hundred thousand souls are crammed into each tray. You can hear the undertones of heartbreak turning to anger in the bridge officers voice as he issues the mission orders.

** The crowning moment in that mission comes as a constant flow of enemy reinforcements begins to overwhelm you... until the most recent arrivals turn out to be a fleet of rebels who immediately spearhead a charge right through the Emperor's forces, dying while clearing a path for your own final attack. ''Barber's Adagio for Strings'' plays through it all - the same song that plays when the Mothership was first launched, and when discovering that [[spoiler:your world had been firebombed into lifelessness]] in the third mission. Retribution was never so awesome.

* The last-minute return of the Mothership/[[spoiler: Sajuuk]] Fleet to Hiigaran space in ''Homeworld 2'''s final mission. You can see the last remnants of the Hiigaran defense fleet who stayed behind to protect the planet getting chewed up by a huge Vagyr onslaught. They've been pushed to the final defensive line, directly in orbit over Hiigara. Then the screen cuts to your fleet jumping in. Cue Karan, [[PreAsskickingOneLiner calmly announcing the arrival of a legend]] and the total reversal of a CurbStompBattle:
--> '''Karan S'jet:''' [[spoiler: Sajuuk]] has returned.
** A mythological tale [[spoiler: turned to be a goddamned ship!]] Think about it!
** Once your forces notice that the Vaygr are preparing to [[spoiler:drop [[AtmosphereAbuse Low-Orbit Atmospheric Deprivation Weapons]]]] on Hiigara, Fleet Intelligence, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness normally known]] for being just as calm as S'Jet, repeatedly yells "BRING [[spoiler:SAJUUK]] TO BEAR!"
