Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

Re: Speculated History of the Federation to Present

Maybe this is just my perception, but the Rocks seem the "proud warrior" type to me - they believe that might makes right, and will side with whoever is the strongest. Thus they currently fight for the Rebels, but (as far as I've seen) Rock ships often surrender if you're clearly beating t...

If you beat a slave ship by killing its crew, you'll be offered a choice of slaves to take aboard your ship.

Re: Suggestion: Boarding Party Event Compensation

I think that would be great, especially because an early-game boarding can kill your chances at victory... or just plain kill you. There should be a nice reward for surviving that.

Re: Most useful crew type?

Zoltan and Rockmen are my favs. My ideal crew would probably be 3 Zoltan manning weapons, shields and engine, 3 Rocks on repair and boarder-fighting duty, and 2 others.
