  • Captain Butler's traditional question before going with his troops into battle:
Butler: "Any heros on board?"
Platoon: "No sir!"
Butler: "Good, the only heros I ever saw weren't breathin'. Now let's jump!"
  • Praetorius, creator of the Neo megas, complains to General Drusus about his decision to use them as soldiers:
Praetorius: "The Neo megas have been created to think, not to fight."
Drusus: "Then let them think in battle!"
  • Pelligrino had been carrying the Neo mega, when he notices a problem and goes to tell Butler:
Pelligrino: "Captain , about that weird Neo we captured, there's good news and bad news."
Butler: "I could use some good news."
Pelligrino: "The good news is that, uh, his air supply is holding out."
Butler: "What's the bad news?"
Pelligrino: "He's stopped breathing."
O'Reilly: "You call that bad news?"
  • When DeLeon approaches O'Reilly after the battle, intending to talk about the Neo mega:
DeLeon: "I'd like to talk to you about a topic of mutual interest."
O'Reilly: "And what makes you think I'd be interested in anything you'd have to say?"
  • After the Neo mega talked about the superiority of his species:
Weston: "Hmm, too bad they left out the gene for modesty."
Neo mega: "Modesty is a Terran weakness, like pity."

Significant events, revelations, and other notes[]

  • Timeline of the Neosapien base on Ceres.
  • We are introduced to the Jumptroops.
  • What was the Alpha 627 incident? Considering that it involved the jumptroops and an E-frame squad, it must have been a battle against the Pirate Clans.
  • We see the tension between jumptroopers and e-frame pilots.
  • Admiral Winfield is putting the ExoFleet on the offensive.
  • Ceres is by far the largest asteroid in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Ceres alone contains about 25% of the mass of all the asteroids combined. It is a little less than twice as far from the sun as Mars.
