I might do, but not separately, it will come with other changes I do then.

Rock Plating for an FTL Recharge Booster
You could keep the ion blast to get through Zoltan shields I suppose,
It would be interesting to start with no weapons or weapons power at the start, but have a scrap recovery arm from the start.
Well I agree mostly, I thought the Rock Plating was more useful, not more lore correct. Just to give it a better chance. Due to battleclads suggestion I made it to a Titanium System Casing. I though I like both these ideas evenly. I removed the heal bomb, but kept the Ion blast for the purpose it serves and to get a bit extra scrap for when you sell it.
And thanks for the kind words .

A lot what you suggest here, I straight out disagree with, cloning and hacking is not fitting for a boat as the firefly. Boarding drones seem further from the lore than the teleporter, like Russian Rockman said:
Russian Rockman wrote:I don't like the boarding drones idea because they didn't have "drones" in the Firefly series. I was thinking of ways to make it a more authentic Serenity. That would mean giving it no weapons, but they often boarded other ships in Firefly so that would mean giving it a teleporter and Scrap Recovery arm for scavenging.
If possible I would really have liked a dual purpose room, but from my understanding of the XML data this is not possible. :S, but thanks for your input . I added the Titanium System Casing as you suggested, and went down on the amount of weapons, though I stuck to the Ion Blast.
I might consider so of your suggestions Battleclad if I get around to doing a Load-out of the previous firefly types.
As well as some of the other suggestions I couldn't meet with this load-out.
My thought is to make a Firefly Series 1 that has no shields, larger engine - relies on dodge change - has no weapons systems, but instead boarding drones.
