"No, did you hear that?!"
I don't think "No" can be used as an interjection here. I get what you're trying to convey but it doesn't work in English. How about "Did you just hear that?!"

Just the smallest taste of the translation issues which would occur with actual separately-evolved brains and language.

I actually kind of liked the original phrasing. Really conveyed the sudden outburst, like "this is the exact moment where my reserve of silence runs dry". Also, removing it left the start of the sentence uncapitalized.

TRIVIA
So far there hasn't been a single instance of a massive interstellar war. Due to the vastness of space, there's no territorial or economic gain from it. The presence of armed spaceships is still warranted for keeping space travel safe and for peacekeeping or policing missions since unexpected events or rogue states can still happen and might require force as a solution.
