My RNG was so bad lately that i didn't get any Store even after 3 deep space jump. Was living with 7 HP left and i kept surrender to big muscle ship. If surrender is not an option, i just cloak my ship and hack their weapon until i can jump.

Why are Phase Ions listed as AE content? As far as I can tell, putting shield-pierce on an ion weapon isn't a feature exclusive to AE.

[Changed the image. Apparently wikia really doesn't like being hotlinked. Apparently this also means that the image on CE wiki is permanently blurry now. Thanks wikia.]

Well, pretty much anything that was added after AE is considered AE content. The only thing that really needs updating is the Effector images, they are still using the old non-glowy images when they were meant to be hacking weapons rather than field projector weapons.

Also, I noticed the Plasma thrower drone is left out of the Drones collage. Poor thing... :(

Why would Slugs care about enslave other people anyway? I though Slugs, and Mantis don't give a damn about enslaving other people :S

Really? Well Slugs are very interested in the black market trade where possibly selling of slaves of other races would be in high demand I assume for the war and stuff. .. perhaps.

But the Mantis... they are the only race in game that are enslave other races REGULARLY. Particularly the Engi.

You ever wondered why Engi would serve on a mantis ship with mantis crewmembers regularly during a war with the mantis? I doubt they simply forgot which side they are fighting on the war considering the fact they do not trust other races much and would often sacrifice others instead of betray there own kind.
(The part I talk about the Mantis is all vanilla content and not CE only)

Well going by my Game of Thrones knowledge here... if you torture a slave enough, they eventually break down and serve you loyally. Perhaps the Engies serving on the Mantis ships had that happen.

Or the Mantis simply reprogrammed them... or the slave traders did it before handing the Engi slave over. This would also explain why on a Mantis ship there are no other alien races serving onboard with them. Because the others take longer to reprogram.

And according to that one out-of-fuel event with the Engies, they can be reprogrammed to fight rather than give you an I/O error.

The thing that is sort of problematic with your ideas is one does not simply reprogram a engi. They are a sentient being with a 'Hive" like mind from each nano-bot to nano-bot that makes up the whole organism. Kinda like how a biological being have there cells communicate to each other... but in a more advance method which could be going along the ideas of like having a engi being more like a country with it's own 'goverment'. a colony of nanobots to form a larger physical being so to say... my idea on the take that is.

(note: there is evidence supporting that engi med bot dispersal are actually engi themself.)

I think 'brain washing' engi (regular term) is probable but the thing is out of all the races that can be manipulated I doubt the mantis could do that... they can't even hold a rench let alone reprogram and rewrite a organisms 'brain'.

I still think the engi are simply there as war slaves. forced as labour. It doesn't want to die. it want's to continue it's existence.

if it was some other race I think under those harsh conditions they would have jumped out of the air lock quite soon... probably is the reason why there is no human slaves on mantis ships.

Shouldn't Slug, and Mantis don't get penalty from forcing slave to work on their ship? I understand about Rock since they really don't like other species to present with them. Lanius ship should get something that make them special. The Requisition License pretty much suck imo. If both A and B start with unique augmentation or scrap recovery arm, it would make more sense since they like scrap anyway.
