The ship still has a working Arty Beam lvl2 and enough power for both BL2.
Try moving the ship a little to the left, it sits too near the enemy.
Ship is too powerfull. With huge engines, maxed drone control, six crew incl. 2 Mantis, a Defense Drone MkII, two Burst Lasers MkII and an Ion Bomb right at the start, there is very little for the player to actually to in the game. Having this ship around sector 6-7 would be nice, but starting with it all is very boring. There is no danger whatsoever.

Don't give it everything, leave something out. If you gift maxed engines at the beginning, reduce crew or weapons. Speaking of weapons, the ship starts ready to blow up the boss. That is not good balance, those are wet dream weapons, so if you are going to give them to the player, nerf the ship in other ways, for example by removing defenses. It's not necessary to have a balanced ship for the sake of balance itself. Ideally the ship should be fun and challenging to play. The way it currently is, it's far too easy to stomp everything.

Nobody gets it right the first time, and FTL is a difficult game so making overpowered ships is natural. For your next one, i suggest you think of a way to challenge and reward the player. Give an idea of how the ship should be played and upgraded, but don't provide it all. Let the player try and put the pieces together.

Do you mean by "rotate" how do you shift it? Go into Edit and select "Calculate Optimal Offset"

And could we have some pictures? A stat sheet is nice but seeing the ship gives me all the info I need in one glance. :)

Actually I was hoping for a picture of the inside, maybe of the Hangar screen, so we can see the rooms and weapons and whatnot.

And yeah, that's in SuperLuminal where you Calculate Optimal Offset.
