That's nothing. Once they run out of missiles, should be easy enough to deal with, provided you got the Shields and O2 fixed quickly.
Of course that missile might not miss, but yeah at least it can be tanked if you're persistent.

What can't be tanked is that you have 2 layers of shields, piss-poor guns and the Slug bastards have that same layout and systems, except instead of a Heavy Laser II and a missile, it's 3 Burst Laser 1's.

Also: Why didn't you use the teleporter when it cloaked for the first time? I'm not seeing any medbay, so crew-killing would have been easy.

Had one earlier today:

Forgot to turn on my oxygen, everyone died.

FTL should tell you AHEAD of time that kind of thing is happening.
This is no easy mission...

BUT YOU SON. YOU WERE BORN FOR IT.

Were your crew already at critical health before you turned the oxygen off? Usually there's a loud BEEP BEEP noise, along with the crew manifesto entries on the left side of the screen blinking red.

I don't think you can really blame the game for that one. Sorry.

On topic: A couple of days ago, I had a slightly damaged Zoltan crewman repairing a system, when the enemy ship launched two Small Bombs. Not only did they both hit the ship, and they both hit the room with the Zoltan in it, but the Zoltan was two tiles away from any doors, so I couldn't even move him out of the room before he died. I guess I should have been a bit more careful and started moving him out of the room before the bombs appeared...

In his defense, the first few times I'd left my oxygen off in AE was a bad time. Pre-AE, there was a huge O2 LOW! warning (like the nebula, intruders, and other warnings) and an alarm sound when you got below 25% so it was REALLY obvious when your air was running out. So if you're on the other ship and turned your air off to power something else, and were relying on that alert to tell you something was wrong, then yeah, people gonna die.

I wish the current game had the alarm when going from 25 to 24 percent, but no on-screen alert (they took it out because it'd be annoying for Lanius ships to always be telling you air was running out).

That said, AE's been out a year. Glance at your ship sometimes :D

Nah, power surges are pretty trivial matters. Oh sure, the Drone Swarm could spell your doom, but the Death Blossom is a joke.

I'm with Dirka on this one. Missiles! Grr!
Although I've never seen the enemy use Pegasus Missiles. Is it possible for them to acquire one or are they just restricted to Hull/Breach Missiles to ruin your day?
