Before that, however, I encountered a rather odd bug while playing as Sera Degana when she's just been brought aboard the Orion for the first time, where Kobayashi warps into Sera's body, and you get stuck. Did that twice before I realized I had the "Turbo" cheat enabled, however, so that may have done it. I restarted the game, reloaded the save and it fixed itself.
I got this t0o my first playthrough. Very annoying bug.
