After dying the 3rd time (when you're about to get a game over) and right after your ship blows up, press Start on another controller and join in with a new character. Your first character will come back to life. Then just quit with the second character, and keep playing until you die again.
After level 16 you can buy a "super" Ultratech, called Shiva,
at the Allied Starbase for 50,000 credits. This item gives you
infinite energy and more shots fired.
After level 32 you can but another "super" Ultratech, called
Disrupter, at the Secret Base for 95,000 credits. This item
kills Armada ships in one hit (I think).
After level 44 (the last ship upgrade) you get unlimited
While playing a game if you decide you would like to try out another race, but you don't quite feel like giving up your 20+ hours of work then just follow this little trick. Load up the game and as you are playing with your main char hit X, Y, A, B, Start to reset the system. Now start a new game with whatever name, and race you desire. Your new guy will have as many EXP as the previous one, but you have to kill one Armada ship for each level you had previously gained. The only down side is all the credits you previously had will be lost, and the ultra techs will be gone. But, if you do some trading with a friend beforehand you can keep the UltraTech as well.

-Only the top 4 items in your inventory are equipped.
-You are awarded a new ship every fourth level up to level
44. Even after the last bulk upgrade your stats (I wish I
could see them) still go up when you gain a level.
-The last mission is #31. Even after you beat it though
you can still play forever, but their is no ending.
-There is no way to contact the Armada, you can only frag
-The "special" weapons, such as the Phoenix Missile, are
fired randomly by your ship.
-The large green dots on your radar are a chance to do a
escort mission. Use your Scanner to talk to the large ship.
By doing this you can earn up to 1000 credits.
-Small green dots on your radar are ships that will become
your wingman when you scan them.
-The red dots are the Armada. The large ones are more harder
to kill, but give more experience. White dots are your
The best places to get money and experience are the different
planets. These ships are harder to kill (because of their
higher levels), but the money and experience are worth it.
Hold down the Scanner when leaving a planet. This way you pick
up anything you forgot to in the heat of battle.
The Eldred are possibly the best for single player because of
their experience boost, critical hit, and their ability to warp
without using energy.
The Vorgon are possibly the best for multi-player because their
homing shots can steal the most kills and also help pick off the
enemies that dodge.
How to beat nearly any boss: If it is a boss located out in
space, then be sure to have a wingman (small green dots). Fly in,
use all your power pods, and then blast away at it. Try to get
behind it because most can't fire out their rear. If you have the
Pod Syphon it is a lot easier.

When you finish escorting a ship to its destination, stay with it after you are paid. The ship and the others will destroy enemies for you, leaving credits behind. At times, you can receive 200 to 300 credits before returning home.
Begin game play in an established game, then use the "In-game reset" feature to return to the main menu. Create a new name and race. Your new character will have the same experience as the last character after one Armada ship for each level is destroyed. Note: You will not have the Ultra Techs or credits from the previous character.
Once you reach level 48, you will have unlimited power pods.
The following are the coordinates to all 31 missions, in X,Y format.
The color you become when you get hit or shoot is brighter than usual. To stay this way temporarily, get hit or shoot, pause game play while bright, then select "Return Home". If done correctly, you will remain the brighter color until you either shoot or get shot. You can enter or exit any structures or planets and still retain the brightness.
