** Certain events can cause crew loss. They do not make exceptions if you have only one crew member left.

** Certain events can cause crew loss. They do not make exceptions if you have only one crew member left. If you start a game with the Engi B cruiser, which starts with a single crew member, [[PressStartToGameOver it is possible to get a game over after only one jump]].

* PracticalCurrency: Scrap (metal) is the game's primary currency, used for buying items at shops, sometimes being used to barter with passing shows, and can be put towards upgrades for your ship.

** The ''Artillery Beam'' system on the Federation Cruiser. In exchange for never being able to use a cloaking device and having no target control over the weapon, you get a beam that can pierce all shields except Zoltan shields, and dish out serious damage as a result.

**** Actually averted with the Rebel Flagship, as the reason that they don't fire battery shots is because they are currently engaged with the Federation fleets, as stated by Admiral Tully in the Last Stand start beacon event.

* BittersweetEnding: Your ship and the flagship can kill each at the same time. If the Flagship is destroyed in this way at stage three, you win and the Federation is saved, but your entire crew died.

** The chain-laser series in ''Advanced Edition'' start out with a long recharge time, but it decreases with each shot, to the point where they fire faster than most weapons in the game. The Vulcan takes this to the extreme; it's a four-power, single shot laser needs to be fired five times to reach its minimum reload time of ''1.1 seconds''. That's faster than shields can recharge.

*** This means that, even allowing for misses, the Vulcan alone will take out any ship in the game. If you can get it- and that's a big if- you can spend all your scrap on shields, engines, and other systems to help you survive while the Vulcan chews through anything and everything in front of it.

**** Since you proceed to kick the shit out of that flagship... clearly, 'not advanced enough'.

* ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler:The third form of the Rebel Flagship; while it [[DamageSpongeBoss can take a lot of punishment]], it's a far cry from the murderous second form. With good evasion and a well-aimed shot at the missile launcher, it will be practically incapable of hurting you. Its wings are even ''literally'' clipped, since the wing-like nacelles on either side blew up in the last two rounds]].

The ''Advanced Edition'' of the ship could [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagg]] the trope, however, since the Flagship now has Mind Control, which can be extremely hard to counter if you don't have one of your own, and will take you a while to break through the ship's Zoltan shield before you can disable it. If the Flagship still has large crew contingent left, the enemy boarding team and mind control together has a very good chance of wrecking you.]].

** In fact every other species had some advantage, humans had to wait until Advanced edition to get theirs, the ability to learn faster.

The player controls the crew of a lone spaceship affiliated with TheFederation, which is currently on the losing end of a massive rebellion. The objective is to deliver important information to the remains of the Federation fleet in a distant sector. Unfortunately, as those familiar with Roguelikes will suspect, this is [[NintendoHard far, FAR from easy]]: the galaxy is an extremely dangerous place for a lone vessel, filled with dangers such as pirates, deadly environmental hazards, rebel scouts, hostile alien races, and others. Not to mention that the vast rebel fleet is in hot pursuit...
