Tricks / Glitches / Technical:

Auto-scroller - A level that—under conventional gameplay—advances at a set pace, regardless of the player's actions. Rendezvous on Barkhesh and Escape from Fest are both examples of auto-scrollers.
Bonk - Destroying an enemy ship by means of crashing into them, with the intention of not also dying.
Canyon-hopping - Clipping through canyon walls; commonly used in Imperial Construction Yards and Assault on Kile II.
Crosshair Glitch - Crosshairs fail to render with vehicles that cannot swap between green and yellow crosshairs. More information can be found here.
Cutscene skip - Deliberately performing actions that cause a cutscene to either fail to play entirely or end prematurely.
Death manipulation - [See respawn manipulation.]
Dialogue skip - Deliberately performing actions that cause dialogue to either fail to play entirely or end prematurely.
Kamikaze - Deliberately destroying an enemy unit by means of crashing into them, knowing that the impact will destroy the player's ship.
Lumie - a PC-exclusive speedrunning trick named after Rogue Squadron speedrunner Lumie, who first documented it. The trick involves dying in such a way that the ship enters a 'falling' animation and—due to artifacts of PC gameplay—gains increasing speed as it flies through the air and across the level. The player respawns where the ship ends the animation, resulting in a respawn manipulation.
Reloading - Deliberately dying so as to refill one's supply of secondary weapons.
Respawn manipulation - Advantageously positioning one's ship such that it respawns, either after a death or a cutscene, in a desirable location. [See also Lumie.]
Sequence break - Performing events in an order other than which was designed by the game developers—usually used to describe destroying enemies before or during a cutscene in which they are shown.
