There is no official wiki. I hate wikia (the company), so I'd probably favor the former. That's just me, though.

Answer to your question: there is no official wiki.

ftlwiki has more accurate info, ripped straight from the game files. It seems to be edited mostly by one guy who's a hacker.
ftl.wikia.com has lots of old wives tale, inaccurate or plainly wrong data. Like all wikias, it's edited by swarm of "look what I've discovered" folks.

Here's a professional tip from a several year wikia veteran editor.

If it's a wikia, it's gonna suck. Stick with wiki.
