Re: Having a viable missile ship/bombship

In my last run on Kestrel A, I started out with a second burst laser 2 and steam rolled through the first few sectors, taking surrenders when they offered lots of resources. I ended up with nearly 50 missiles saved up by the end of sector 6 when I found a free hermes launcher floating in space. Then...

Double Hermes and double anti-ship drones

Killed the final boss with this loadout. It was pretty exciting. I send a double volley of missiles, dealing 6 damage total at the shield room. This should knock it down to 1 shield bubble left and usually sets it on fire to finish it off, then I power up the Anti-ship Mk 1 and Mk 2 drones to deal a...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

You can use Zoltans to free up power from the teleporter or cloak room while it's in cooldown. While it's in its cooldown (same effect as ion weapons) you cannot add or remove reactor power from the system - but when you move a Zoltan into the room, it will still "kick out" 1 reactor powe...

But the same is true for your ship too. You can jump away if your pilot is under attack.

Re: How do you keep enemy ship from escaping?

Some events are scripted to jump. The rockman test of endurance for example. It will jump even without a pilot in the helm. I've seen it. We were at the sun and a solar flare hit their cockpit and the fire destroyed it. then it said jump imminent, and they jumped away without a working helm.

Re: The Basilisk

The system repair drone is all you need to fix your ship while your entire crew teleports to the enemy ship. Buy more men at the stores. The only weapon you need is a ion blast 1. only needs 1 power, so you don't have to waste tons of scrap to open up the weapons system, and it can lower the zoltan ...

Re: Post your Highscore

Consider a stealth ship build that never has shields.
Max engines, max stealth, strong weapons. Defense drone and hull repair drone. It would give you a high chance to beat the flagship without shields.

And hull repair drones can be used during battle if needed.
