I mostly find two-three weapon ships with one or two levels of shields. Even the giant auto-cruisers generally only have two weapons at this level, not to mention the larger Rebel ships. That Zoltan station is kind of ridiculous.
I once encountered a Rebel Cruiser with all the systems (including the battery) and packing a lot of firepower and 3 layers of shields in Sector 2/???
The text about it pretty much was saying "GTFO NOW!" so I painstakingly waited for my crappy drive to charge and fled!
By the way Sleeper, there's still that random event with the Mantis Fleet you sometimes encounter at the entrance beacon of deep space. Sure I know I can't avoid it and intruders beam onboard, followed by the escort beaming onboard, then more intruders beaming onboard as you damage the escort...
What I don't like is that my only option is to then "Attack the undefended fleet!" and then have even more intruders beam onboard, probably while you're still fighting off the other 4 Mantises.
Is there any option to get the hell away from the Mantis fleet after smashing their escort? I didn't choose to attack the fleet like the Mantis sector event's choices give you, they attacked me!
Lastly, I found that when jumping back to Normal Space and the next sector is a Federation/Contested sector, you get the Hyperspace event and it plays as normal until the exit which allows you to jump into deep space.
