Hi Guys - new to the forum, not new to FTL. Pretty addicted to this badboy.
Okay, this shit is the hardest, unless you're lucky. 1 crew member, no sensors, no doors, small rooms (weapons and shields only 2!)...but there are advantages. Sell the drone reactor asap - it's useless.
FTL is a gamblers game. Buying certain options increases the odds of blue options - this ship has plenty. Both drones give plenty of options, ion weapon as well. Heavy laser my fav weapon in ftl...breach, fire...amazing.
This ship lacks offence, so get a combat drone asap. The quick recharge on the green laser is great with a combat drone. Then get shields and med bay asap. Man up and man your weapons - attack is the best defense.
Try get lanius and slugs - slug pilot can't be mind controlled and lanius loves vacuums.
IMO this ship is a teleporter. get shields and defense drone, and use boarding. Mind control also shines - when an enemy boards you, use him to man your systems, and suffocate.
Good luck guys - this is the hardest ship, but my fav. I love a challenge - this is the ultimate challenge.
