So when you're fighting the flagship...

And say, theoretically, you forget that there is still crew onboard when you defeat the first or second stage.

For the sake of argument, pretend that either most of the flaghsip crew is dead, or your own crew is in one of the rooms that is seperated from the rest.

Why do you lose those crewmembers?

You ever do something with the reason of "because I can"?

http://i.imgur.com/nGQlKsH.jpg I had a burst laser III for the whole game as my only way of breaking shields, and suddenly I happen upon a glaive beam in a shop. I decided "what the hey?" and bought it, sold all my other weapons. 1 sector later, I stumble upon a weapon pre-igniter in anoth...

Re: (bug report)I didn't think to get a screenshot of it, bu

I thought back on it, and I realized that I didn't actually kill the opposing vessel before jumping out. Rather, I jumped out while cloaked while escaping an opposing ship, and that created the situation where the remaining duration bar was stuck while it was on cooldown.

Re: You have 8 power in your weapons system:

Do ion weapons have an effect on Zoltan shielding? I can't recall... but either way my vote is for the burst laser setup. There's just something about lasers(and their lack of reliance on ammo) that I love! for every 1 point of damage the ion weapon deals, it will hit zoltan shielding for 2 damage....

Re: You have 8 power in your weapons system:

yeah, I ended up going for 2x burst laser II, but I had been using two heavy ions before I got a burst laser II and spotted one in the shop at the next jump. I was very torn.

You have 8 power in your weapons system:

And 3 weapon slots.

You are given a choice between two loadouts:
Burst laser II
Burst laser II
Glaive Beam

or

Heavy Ion I
Heavy Ion I
Glaive beam

Came upon this decision earlier... I've never been so conflicted. Both are so tempting.
