Consider a stealth ship build that never has shields.
Max engines, max stealth, strong weapons. Defense drone and hull repair drone. It would give you a high chance to beat the flagship without shields.

Haha... that's quite an idea...
Although, I'd be worried about the enemies damaging my systems. Especially phase 2, with the two attack drones + drone spam... having powerful weapons won't do much good if they land a few shots in the weapons bay.
But if you wanna try it, let us know how it goes...

My High score : 6780

Of course, I played with Infinite Space and my own ship, The Lost Hunter !
It's the link in my signature for the download, it is overpowered.

I don't think high scores obtained by cheating are valid. But thats just me.

Woohoo, victory with the Slug A!
It definitely helped that I found a Burst Laser Mk I in Sector 1! And then some Hull Laser I's later on, which I replaced after I got to the secret sector. Also I got to the secret sector for the first time without savescumming! Woohoo!

That's also the most scrap I've ever gotten on Normal... enough to fully upgrade everything except cloak and sensors, which I didn't ever buy. I even fully upgraded drone control, hehehe!
I also found a Weapons Pre-Igniter for sale... in a shop in Sector 8, which was scheduled to be taken over right after I visited, so I had to buy it RIGHT THEN. Sold my other augments to get it; it was nice and def worth it!

4920 with the Basilisk on Normal, full completion. To be honest I don't know why it's so high, I didn't think it was a great run. Might be because I completed "Living off the Land" while doing it?

Did you take a lot of ships intact? Taking ships intact means better rewards which means more scrap which, I think, means more points.

Just got a high score of 5757 with the Basilisk on my first play through with the ship! A 4-man teleport pad is just ridiculous! Also I had a lot of luck early on, finding 2 rockmen in the first sector and a Burst Laser Mk II as well.

Hey guys I've been playing this game like a maniac for 28hours so far. Time to switch off easy I suppose. Or maybe it's better to unlock the other ships on easy...?
Full Play through at least 5 times, I can't remember, my first game I got to final boss but auto-loss because he went to close to the base lol
