Capella Supernova = Fizzle
So I have been replaying FS2 under Knossos with the latest media VPs.  I was playing the final mission and forgot exactly when the supernova began and was too far out.  I was racing for the node as fast as I could (flying an Ares) and heard the wave approaching.  I used my hat switch to look aside to see it and it came up on me and I got the external 'you're dying' image, but as the counter hit zero I was suddenly returned to my cockpit, and my ship was fine, as were all of the rest of the surviving ships.  I watched as they all reached the node and departed.  Command announced as each one (save the two surviving Lambda transports) departed safely.  When I jumped out I still ended up with the 'Alpha 1 is dead' cutscene following the supernova one though.

I have no clue how that happened, my best working theory is that something in the supernova code freaked out, I'm not a code person though.

It's the final boss from the game Hollow Knight: "The Radiance". Basically a Moth Sun-Goddess. The Meme is that you decided to fight the sun and still won.

Heh.  This could be a bug.  Can it be reproduced, or was this a one-off occurrence?
