Mine is the description for ill-advised modifications "This ship has suffered from unqualified maintenance"

The Knight Templar's Rhon and Longinus are implied to be lightsabers. They use "Force Crystals"

I think is easy for Simba and Mufasa sing the Circle of Life when they're on the top of the food chain, I bet the zebras hate that song.

Cigarettes are a lot like hamsters. Perfectly harmless, until you put one in your mouth and light it on fire

When going into combat, you have three options - run away (which is sometimes gone), deploy ships, and open commlink. I feel people don't understand that this commlink option exists, and the fact that you can get randomised, amusing flavour text from different mod factions depending on your relationship with them. Blackrock has some good ones when you're friendly with them, like one asking what colour their ships are, and why their faction colours don't match. In vanilla the pirates have one where they are hostile to you, and on combat they're confused that you actually picked up the commlink and spoke with them. You can also bribe Luddic Path fleets into not killing you through this dialogue option.

I love the quotes from the Starlight Cabal. My favorite bit of flavor text used to be from the Interstellar Federation's ship descriptions.

Very few problems can't be solved with gratuitous violence and epic explosions.

I am pro at Paradox-Billiards-Vostroyan-Roulette-Fourth-Dimensional-Hypercube-Chess-Strip-Poker. Fight me.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Eagles and Falcons on fire off the L5 of Sindria. I watched Tachyon beams glitter in the dark near the Perseus Nebula...

I thought this was a "low" risk bounty hunt...but the captain says "Oh look at the time, it's Death O'Clock!"

...and proceeds to smack the bejeezus out of me with a pair of modified combat freighters and their friends
