* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPfY1D3O7C8 Agnus Dei]]'', a chloral of Samuel Barber's ''[[CherubicChoir Adagio for Strings]]'', potentially one of the saddest instrumental pieces ever written, plays during the launch of the Mothership (giving a spiritual "we're putting our whole race's effort into this" feeling), as well as two other highly dramatic moments, potentially bumping the first one up to TearJerker status and serving as a ThemeMusicPowerUp for the second one, at the end of the final mission, as enemy rebels courageously - suicidally, in fact - charge straight at their Emperor to clear a path for you to attack.
** There is also a somewhat minor one that slips past the radar of many every now and then. The mission where you save the Bentusi, and they share with you a recording of your ancestors' exile from Hiigara, all while being accompanied with ''Agnus Dei'', the choral version of Adagio for Strings.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2re702QU6Ls Taiidan Empire's theme]]. It's subdued and threatening--and the herald of another [[TheUsualAdversaries Taiidan]] fleet coming in. It makes you crack your knuckles and prepare to fight your WorthyAdversary.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTKakINXjl8 Turanic Raiders' theme]]. Ominous and sinister in equal measure, with a lazy snakelike tempo that suits the predatory mercenary/scavenger culture of the Turanics well.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY1fVrI2NFQ Kadeshi battle theme]]. Slow, and with a lo-o-ong buildup, but VERY menacing, and it fits them perfectly. You aren't taking revenge on the Taiidani or routing pirates. You're just trying to get out of the nebula ''alive''.
