If you die in the mission but get to a checkpoint, when the game restarts the checkpoint your hull and missiles have been reset back to full (same for the hulls of any ally you were protecting at the time, or at least to the level they were at the start), making some of the more frustrating parts of some levels a little more bearable.Quotes
Control: "Colonial frigates have folded in. The best strategy is to ignore them and hope they go away. The frigates are not dangerous. You can see this for yourself by flying directly at them. For example, you can try ramming one with your ship. Alternatively, you could try ramming one of the torpedoesEaster Eggs
Contains a number of references to various mecha shows: Fold is likely a Super Dimension Fortress Macross reference. The general conflict is very similar to the One Year war in Mobile Suit Gundam. The Flux energy used in Strike Mode is held in a capacitor. Strike Mode seems to be a reference to the Strike Gundam. The fighter craft trails were inspired by TRON. Although this can be said that it draws from fighter trails in Homeworld. The final level is obviously very much inspired by Star Fox 64, namely the tunnels before you fly through (also has aspects of moving through small gaps like in Venom). Shooting down torpedoes also evokes memories of Sector Z from the same game. Historical reference: the Battle of Taranto (torpedo bombers damaging or sinking docked battleships). Could be unintentional, but there are a lot of voiceclips about Cruisers being operational
