I'm sure there are at least 3 blue options for that mine thing, but I can't remember for sure what. I think some kind of drone is one of them.

The most infuriating encounter in the game.

You know what event does the best job of upsetting me whenever it occurs? When I get a quest for a "hidden federation base" that can help me more, I have to detour a bit from my planned path to reach it, but when I get there it tells me "there is nothing here at the coordinates you we...

Re: Suggestions and "bugs"

Those aren't bugs, there are good reasons why it was designed that way. The gameplay wouldn't work as well if it went in most of the ways you suggested.

Re: [HOW TO] Beat the final boss (With variants!)

Um, that post isn't much more than "fire lots of weapons at it if you want to destroy it". This really isn't useful at all. It doesn't tell you anything that anyone wouldn't try to do in any case.
