Re: I want to tell more than I want anyone to read this

Nice! Beating the boss with a less than optimal loadout is always the best victory. Sometimes you get to sector 8 and you know, based on past experience and how your ship is equipped, that unless you make a huge mistake, like losing your boarding team to an auto-fire incident (never happened to me, ...

Re: Burst Laser Mk3

Where the MKIII really shines is on the ships with only 3 weapon slots - helps you max out your firepower, which is hard to do with 3 slots , and will take down shields so the less powerful weapons you have can do damage - only downside is waiting to fire in volleys to get full effect - it has a dam...

Re: Worst Run Ever

Ouch dude! I feel your pain, that's a worse defeat than mine, simply because you were far enough in to be A) reasonably confident of success and B) emotionally invested in your ship and the crew.

Zoltan Exploit?

it seems that when playing either of the Zoltan ships you can sell the Zoltan Shield for scrap (40) and the game plays as though it is still installed on your ship. You are taking hits, and the green numbers are coming up, and your main shields aren't depleting till you have had 5 points worth of da...
