    I am stuck in a never-ending fight in FTL. Is it possible to escape the fight?

    I have no fuel, and no missiles left. My shield and my engine are top notch. The enemy shield has 3 slots. My best beam cannot pierce through shields with 2 slots or more. My best laser shoots 2 bullets at a time. The enemy rooms have no oxygen, so any teleportation for a sabotage would lead to the death of my crew.

  • Normally you wouldn't be able to escape a situation like this, but your halberd beam should be able to do 1 point of damage per room through a 1 bubble shield, which is what the enemy will have immediately after your hull laser hits. You can destroy the enemy and be on your merry way.

  • While kotezot's answer is the best course of action, there is an ugly alternative.

    Sacrifice a crew member. Teleport them over to start destroying the shield generator. Then do everything you can with your other weapons to bring it and keep it offline. Crystals, Mantes and Rockmen are best suited for this task with their improved attacks or protection. Humans and Slugs can do some damage, but won't live to return. A single Zoltan or Engi won't do enough damage before suffocating.

    Unfortunately, you'd have to expend two crew members to pull this off, leaving you in a dire situation.

    This reminds me of an episode of Start Trek: TNG, Thine Own Self.

    On the Enterprise, Troi asks Commander Riker if she is allowed to take the Bridge Officer's Test. Riker wonders why, and is told that she has considered it off and on for over two years, but was motivated by her class reunion, as well as being in charge during the events of Disaster. She is allowed to take the test and does so at the holodeck.

    Geordi La Forge and Worf are the senior officers in the simulation, where the insulation of the antimatter chambers is breaking down. Troi has to make fast decisions, but fails. Riker tells her that all parts of the test went well for her, except for that last and most important part of it, resulting in Troi failing the whole test.

    After having entered the holodeck, Troi starts the test's simulation again. She is in engineering, and the antimatter is about to leak out of its container. She asks La Forge if he can repair the damaged parts. The Worf hologram says that La Forge never will survive the operation, but Troi, well aware of this, orders the holographic La Forge to repair the damage anyway. As an anguished Troi watches him enter the turbolift, Riker, having known she would not give up so easily, enters and congratulates her on passing the test. She immediately deduces that the point of the test was to see if she could order someone to their death, which Riker confirms. Having known this was part of being in command, but having still hesitated when the time came, Troi admits that he may have been right about her being ill-suited for the job - to which Riker counters that she passed with flying colors; she had tried every possible solution she could think of, and when nothing else worked, she made the painful but necessary decision required to save the ship.

  • As you can see, I cannot escape because my fuel is empty. The enemy can't penetrate my shield but I can't damage him either. What could I do other than killing my crew by opening my airlocks?

  • I've never bought fuel at a fuel depot, but I sometimes find the Normandy has returned to 1000 fuel. I've found fuel a few times while scanning, but definitely not that much. Are there other actions that cause the Normandy to refuel?

  • So, the Normandy is pretty cool. Her scanners have been upgraded, and I can check a few planets at once now to see if they have a shiny rock I might be interested in. Unfortunately, those scanners attract unwelcome attention. I don't like Reapers, and running away from them in between scanning planets is tedious - especially when I have to go running in search of a fuel depot every third system I visit. In Mass Effect 2, I could upgrade the Normandy's scanners and fuel tanks, to make scanning more efficient and to allow for fewer trips to a fuel depot in between systems. Are there any

  • . Waited a while and... nothing. I didn't have scanners level 2 so I didn't know for sure what was going on but all the enemy crew must have died, no? In any case the ship kept firing and I...

  • Among all the discussion surrounding FTL, one thing I have not seen is a verdict on the wisdom/idiocy of upgrading to level 3 sensors. For those of you who never have, doing so allows you to see the power distribution and damage status of the enemy systems in the same format by which you see your own. (individual upgrade bars, repair status, etc.) I've gone to level 3 twice, both times I was spoiled with scrap. I found it mildly interesting but it did not influence my SOP in combat. Where or when would level 3 sensors make sense, if ever?

  • In Mount & Blade, I was recently attacked by a Lord whose army outnumbered mine 2:1. I tried my best to avoid the fight, as I knew I wouldn't stand a chance, but he was adamant about fighting with me. Needless to say, I lost. Badly. I managed to get captured, along with my 54 men. However, I was fortunate enough to escape from my captors. Unfortunately, it was only me and 2 of my heroes, leaving me with only 3 troops. Is there any way for me to get them back? Say, if I were to capture a Lord from the Kingdom in which my men are being held?

  • I've been searching, and couldn't find the answer anywhere! How can I use an item unloader to unload all Items except for the fuel in my modular cart? Is it even possible? I've also played around with it a bit, but can't find out how... It just unloads everything, including the fuel.

  • I bought the Eclyps Towers apt. 31, which has 10- vehicle slots that'd never given me any problems, the garage also contains a bicycle rack with 8 slots on the wall, but I can only fill 3 of them.
