Is the lack of a "you lose" taunt intentional? Seems odd that there isn't one.

FS defence fund deployment.              "Didn't think it would be that easy, did you?"           
FS exogalactic transciever activation.   "Alerting central processing"
Killing an irreplaceable.

If warheads can't solve it, use more warheads.

Hmm, that's actually an interesting oversight.  Don't know why I didn't think of that!

Maybe one for when you've gone from (multiple planets) to 1 again?

"Pathetic."  "Sector Cleared."  "Creators Erased."  "Resistance is Futile." could all work for game loss. 

Edit: "Checkmate." It's a classic for a reason.

This might be slightly to cheesy to do in an ominous voice: "Obey gravity, it's the law." - when the AI wipes your raid starships/transports in the presence of a gravity drainer.
"Nuisance Suppressed" - Player homeworld eliminated.

Guardpost or regular announced (counter)wave hitting an undefended planet: "Are you even paying attention?"

I like 'Checkmate'.

Possibly also 'No.' for when you lose a numerically superior force (but sorta rubbish in comparison otherwise, like a big chunk of MkIs thrown at something with not much support)

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

If you reach the AI homeworld, the first time it releases its "mega response" (startegic reserve, fallen spire response fund, whatever) of a sufficiently large strength AND out strengths the fleet you are attacking with,
"Enough of this foolishness". One time only per game.


Also, figure out why the "failed attack suite" of taunts don't seem to be playing often.
