  • What difference will the more skillful (1 star or 2 star) crew members make compared to a non-skilled one in FTL?
  • How do you collect all the crew types?
  • How close does the final boss have to be to lose?
  • Does air pressure equalize more quickly if the doors are open?
  • How can I counter enemy away teams?
  • Tips for killing enemy crew without use of boarding parties
  • In this instance, I found the pod just before leaving sector 7 and ended up finished the game before discovering what it does, if anything. I recall having seen it once before, but in that case was destroyed shortly afterwards.

    So, for the next time I find it, how do I repair it (as the description implies is possible)?
    And what does fixing it do?

  • How do drones choose their targets?
  • Is there a preferred way to move through the 'Sector Map'?
  • How do I unlock all the other ships in the hangar?
  • How can I beat the final boss in Faster Than Light?

  • What are some effective strategies for boarding enemy ships?

    There’s an event where some Zoltan scientists will ask if they can run some tests on your ship and crew. If you have this pod, when you meet with these scientists, you can instead choose to allow them to inspect the pod.

    From the pod:

    You’ll gain a new crewmember, who is of a race that preceeded the Rock people. He will ask you to embark on a quest near the Rock homeworld. He is sort of a cross between Rock and Human, and has a “Lockdown” ability that is unique.

    Once you’ve completed this quest stage, you’ll get another for the Rock Homeworld sector. If you’ve already passed this or don’t have it on your route, you’re out of luck. If you manage to finish this stage of the quest:

    You will unlock the “unidentified cruiser” – the Crystalline Cruiser in the ship hangar.
