** There was also going to be a female lacertian named Tonan [=LaLune=] who lived on a surface, but built a craft to start a new life. She was cut because of the later storyboard decision that surface life was extremely rare, if practiced at all.

* '''Code 0A''' ([[spoiler:SPFONEMILLION]]) = Rad Inhabitor (X-type, resists Luminous/Hull and Thermal/Hull)
* '''Code 0D''' ([[spoiler:THREEBASKETSAPIECE]]) = Pali Cannon (B-type, Luminous, Systems damage, 3 AP, no added effects)
* '''Code 0E''' ([[spoiler:ITHINKIMESSEDUPAGAIN]]) = Fool's Errata (A-type, Luminous, Pilot damage, 4 AP, Acc+ III)

!!Weapon cues

Most enemies have hidden clues to their weapon's shell, property, and type in their sprite.

* '''Short, thin projection(s)''' tend to signify the weapon is '''Auroral'''.
* '''Large, round openings or cannons''' tend to signify the weapon is '''Ballistic'''.
* '''Long, blade-like projection(s)''' tend to signify the weapon makes '''Contact'''.

* If the weapon bay(s) are '''tipped with an arrow''', the weapon's property is most likely '''Thermal'''.
* If the weapon bay(s) have '''jagged, lightning-like shapes''', the weapon's property is most likely '''Electrical'''.
* If the weapon bay(s) are '''simple and lacking in adornment''', the weapon's property is most likely '''Kinetic'''.
* If the weapon bay(s) are '''split or have multiple protrusions''', the weapon's property is most likely '''Pulse'''.
* If the sprite contains '''bright, cathode-like structures''', the weapon's property is most likely '''Luminous'''.
* If the weapon bay(s) have '''large, bulbous chambers''' on them, the weapon's property is most likely '''Chemical'''.

* If the weapon is positioned '''in the center of the sprite''', the weapon most likely targets the '''hull'''.
* If the weapon is positioned '''between the center and edges of the sprite''', the weapon most likely targets the '''systems'''.
* If the weapon is positioned '''on the sides of the sprite''', the weapon most likely targets the '''pilot'''.

In addition, there is a naming convention among enemy weapons as well:

* '''Beams''' are Hull-targeting Auroral weapons.
* '''Overloads''' are Systems-targeting Auroral weapons.
* '''Shocks''' are Pilot-targeting Auroral weapons.

* '''Shots''' are Hull-targeting Ballistic weapons.
* '''Disruptors''' are Systems-targeting Ballistic weapons.
* '''Disablers''' are Pilot-targeting Ballistic weapons.

* '''Cutters''' are Hull-targeting Contact weapons.
* '''Impedors''' are Systems-targeting Contact weapons.
* '''Lances''' are Pilot-targeting Contact weapons.

!! Splices 6/7:

* '''(1-1):''' ''"...that last Flash was the worst yet. All five senses firing at once. It hurts. I don't know if I can take it..."''

* '''(1-B):''' ''"...immortal, all-knowing, omnipresent...immortal, all-knowing, omnipresent...immortal, all-know..."''
** Possible {{Foreshadowing}} of fih'jik predecessors, or some other type of religious cult
** Alternatively, it could be {{Foreshadowing}} a third "superpower" -- EROS could be said to be all-knowing, and Typelog is omnipresent. That raises the question of what would be "immortal" -- perhaps the Inquiry Project itself? A religious cult like the fih'jik could also be possible.
* '''(1-C):''' ''"...No, Father, please. I am not ready yet, despite what he told you. Just let me stay, if for a brief time longer..."''
** Speaker: Almost certainly Mahk
* '''(1-D):''' ''"...harvesting Lessers to make chemical components for weapons? That's gross, and kind of dangerous too..."''

** Subject: Probably from a discussion on spacecraft's self-preservation technology before it was finalized
* '''(2-2):''' ''"...beyond the ninth Splice? Impossible. All sensors indicate zero-levels of energy and matter in that range..."''
** Subject: The "negative splice zone"
* '''(2-3):''' ''"...proposed Credits be divided into eighths. Preposterous. What civilization would measure anything in pieces of 8?..."''
** Probably {{Foreshadowing}} that fih'jik (who count in base 8) will appear at some point
* '''(2-4):''' ''"...got away. The H-ID says it's destroyed, so he probably hijacked another and got away before we could..."''
** Speaker: Neff, referring to [[spoiler:the Black One]].
* '''(2-5):''' ''"...weird bunch, I'll say. All SOL too. They think lacertians and people with augments are, well, inhuman..."''
** Subject: Either Purity Point or EROS
* '''(2-6):''' ''"...I say, why not? It's data in our heads, it's still data in the Typelog systems. She should go for it..."''
* '''(2-7):''' ''"...Why'd it have to be lizards? Of all the forms they could take! You know, there's something in our brains that..."''
* '''(2-8):''' ''"...The collective knowledge of all minds is supposed to be an unrestrained thing, unbound by mechanical..."''
* '''(2-9):''' ''"...Sikohlon guys rip you off. They gave me 50 half-cred for a perfectly intact A-Shell. What a bunch of..."''
** LampshadeHanging on the KarlMarxHatesYourGuts economy of the game
* '''(2-A):''' ''"...swear it weren't no LAC! It was huge! And it reeked! But it just, like, ignored me. Like it had some place to be..."''
** Subject: The Black One (presumably)
* '''(2-B):''' ''"...consumes enough space dust to offset any separation damage. Durable, and self-replicating. But is it safe?..."''
** Subject: L-Skin
* '''(2-C):''' ''"...so he says, 'it's all scope'. What does that even mean? We don't need limits. We need to know everything!..."''
** Subject: The CentralTheme of the story
