The plot of the DLC missions takes place within the timeline of the main campaign, just before the assault on Farbanti and after the destruction of the first Arsenal Bird; the LRSSG is tasked by Osean Brigadier-General Howard Clemens with hunting down the Alicorn, an Erusean submersible nuclear-powered aircraft carrier thought to be missing since the Erusean government purchased it from Yuktobania. The submarine greatly concerns Osea due to its WMD capabilities, but Osea wishes to capture rather than destroy it to force Erusea to surrender. Osean forces supported by the LRSSG engage the Erusean forces tasked with defending the Alicorn while it is docked in Artiglio Port, but the Alicorn's captain, Matias Torres, suddenly deserts. He uses the firepower of the Alicorn to destroy the attacking Osean fleet and launches a formation of fighters carrying a WMD cruise missile, which are all shot down by Trigger. Torres, furious at the destruction of the cruise missile, nonetheless resolves to continue his plans and orders the Alicorn to escape in the confusion. Trigger also encounters "Rage" and "Scream", a brother-sister team that together comprises "Mimic Squadron," who are apparently under orders to kill him. Trigger repels Mimic, but Scream addresses Trigger on an Osean frequency promising to kill him.

Controversy has arisen when games have charged the user for access to content that was in the game's original distribution. This originated the term "on-disc DLC". Some games include some portions of planned DLC on-disc; a notable example is Mass Effect 3 by BioWare and Electronic Arts. The game disc/distribution included portions of the content in the "From Ashes" DLC; when the user purchased the DLC, it unlocked this content and downloaded additional patches to complete the content. According to Electronic Arts, this on-disc DLC was done because they needed to have the appropriate hooks ready to go within the main game, comparing the content on-disc to scaffolding for constructing a building. Specifically, because the content was planned to add a new playable character which then could be played in the main campaign, they needed to have that content on-disc for all. From BioWare's perspective, having some of that support already in the game allowed them to finish off the main content of Mass Effect 3 and turning it over to Electronic Arts to publish on schedule, thus allowing them to focus on completing the "From Ashes" content at their own pace, which would be downloaded once the DLC was purchased. However, players felt they were being cheated by Electronic Arts since the majority of content was already on disc, and believed Electronic Arts had simply locked the content away behind a microtransaction to get more money from players.
The game features both free and paid DLC. The first three free DLCs add a number of multi-player maps as well as units to existing factions, while the paid DLC adds entirely new playable nations.

The same internal stress that benefits the hardness of DLC materials makes it difficult to bond such coatings to the substrates to be protected. The internal stresses try to "pop" the DLC coatings off of the underlying samples. This challenging downside of extreme hardness is answered in several ways, depending upon the particular "art" of the production process. The most simple is to exploit the natural chemical bonding that happens in cases in which incident carbon ions supply the material to be impacted into sp 3 bonded carbon atoms and the impacting energies that are compressing carbon volumes condensed earlier. In this case the first carbon ions will impact the surface of the item to be coated. If that item is made of a carbide-forming substance such as Ti or Fe in steel a layer of carbide will be formed that is later bonded to the DLC grown on top of it. Other methods of bonding include such strategies as depositing intermediate layers that have atomic spacings that grade from those of the substrate to those characteristic of sp 3 bonded carbon. In 2006 there were as many successful recipes for bonding DLC coatings as there were sources of DLC.
