Let's meet stuff you would have seen in the tutorial levels, plus the Erinyes!

And a really good ship.

This is one of several "best ship in the game"s. It's my personal favorite, though, like many times in these LPs, I break my traditions and learn to use more resources than usual, and don't just use it every single level the rest of the game. Still, four-gun Kayser is so ridiculously deadly that it's hard to pass up. Its weakness, other than high power use, is small secondary banks, which you don't notice here with Tempests. It makes Tornadoes a less-than-ideal choice, though one I spent years making anyway.
