- Track 32, is named "Exosuit" because the original name for the Prawn Suit was Exosuit, and the track had been made prior to the name change.
- Rock It! was originally called Void and Cuddlefish was originally called Dive Buddy.
- In Alien Expanse, Donald Trump saying "China" can be heard at around 1:17.
- One track called Docking was used in the Coffee and Castles trailer but is not on OST or in the game.
- Docking was first used in Natural Selection II.
- In the properties of almost every music file, in the comments there are random characters, fun sentences, possible origins of the music, and shout outs. These were probably made by Simon Chylinski.
- There is no OST for the Eye Candy trailer.
