The title "Five Year Mission" is a reference to Star Trek: The Original Series, as well as to the fact that the band had existed for about five years when the album was released.

The sound is very synthetic, with a good measure of sound effects thrown in here and there. The lyrics are mostly dark and gloomy, especially in "Last Man on Earth":

The human race is dead
There is not a single head
Where ever I see
There's no one but me.
(...)

As a side note, "Last Man on Earth" is also the exact english translation of "Sista Mannen På Jorden", a side project of one of the band members.
