Sector 2

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 56
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 56

I have collected a rather large sum of scrap, so I give the store a visit.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 57
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 57

I buy some fuel because having fuel is crucial.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 58
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 58

I also fix a bit of the hull, not all of it though because some missions could provide you with a free repair of your hull.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 59
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 59

I choose the blue option,

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 60
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 60

but they refuse. I choose to give them the requested 5 missiles because I do not like missile based weapons.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 61
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 61

Rather unfortunate but if I had repaired my ship completely I would've gotten nothing.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 62
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 62

Next location has nothing to offer.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 63
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 63

I choose the 1st option

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 64
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 64

and after that the blue option.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 65
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 65

I choose the 1st option

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 66
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 66

and receive an additional crew member. While not an engi, he will be useful for future boarding.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 67
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 67

For now, I send him to the doors system.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 68
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 68

I participate in their study

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 69
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 69

But it can't always turn out well. Having these doors improved and manned by Smith, the intruders have chosen a bad location,

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 70
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 70

Venting them out like this should be enough.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 71
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 71

While that is happening, I shoot at their weapons system. Mantis deal twice as much damage so Smith should have no problem dealing with one human.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 72
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 72

After that, Smith takes care of the other two intruders.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 73
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 73

Open the doors to distribute the oxygen once again.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 74
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 74

Finish off the ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 75
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 75

Some decent rewards, but the Defense Drone Mark 2 won't be used.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 76
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 76

Another location with nothing happening.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 77

As you can see, there is another store, but before visiting it straight away

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 78
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 78

I jump to some other nearby beacons to collect more scrap.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 79
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 79

I respond

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 80
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 80

and choose to accept their quest.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 81
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 81

The quest is in the next sector, it doesn't matter which one you'll choose.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 82
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 82

I travel to the next location

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 83
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 83

to be attacked by pirates.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 84
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 84

There is a pulsar, meaning that it will disable some systems throughout the fight.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 85
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 85

Both shields are disabled and I just focus on the weapon system.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 86
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 86

Having the Mantis is useful, put him into the door system to reinforce the doors or in the sensor system so see what happens in the enemy ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 87
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 87

The fights early on are easy so I continue my way.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 88
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 88

I choose the 1st option

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 89
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 89

and get my reward.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 90
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 90

So we are at the store. I am going to buy

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 91
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 91

the crew teleporter

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 92
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 92

and fuel once again.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 93
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 93

After that I sell both the Drone II and

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 94
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 94

The Chain Ion I aquired earlier in the game.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 95
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 95

With the teleporter, I will now start to board ships. If the enemy ship has no living crewmembers (an exception to this are automated ships, do not ever board those!) you win the fight without destroying the ship, resulting in higher scrap rewards and possibly more.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 96
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 96

Now close to the end of the 2nd sector it is time to do a few upgrades to the reactor.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 97
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 97

More energy is required with the new teleporter system.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 98
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 98

I upgrade the shields and add the same 2 levels to the power bars because it will need the same amount of power.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 99
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 99

This will be our first ship and I'll explain boarding a bit. There are a few factors which are important BEFORE boarding a ship: medbay, doors, cloak and environmental hazards. If the enemy has upgraded doors it might trap your boarding crew which can result in the death of your boarding crew.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 100
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 100

I know that 1) the ship can't get through my shields (Ion Stunner and a single laser) and 2) 2 Mantis, one in the piloting system and one in the shields.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 101
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 101

I shoot at the piloting system so the Mantis in there will take some damage.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 102
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 102

I send my crew member from the shield system to the sensor system to see what's happening and I send the human manning the engines into the teleporter room.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 103
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 103

I shoot once again into the piloting system so both take damage. It is important to have autofire toggled OFF to avoid unintended destruction of the ship followed up by the doom of your boarding crew.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 104
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 104

I send them in

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 105
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 105

and let them fight it out. I should have the upper hand since both of them are quite low on health and there is no medbay on their ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 106
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 106

Remember to call your crew members back on your ship before you jump.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 107
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 107

This is a very good reward for me, a weapon I will use and a new crew member, an engineer.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 108
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 108

I invest some scrap into a sensors upgrade

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 109
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 109

Heal the boarding members and send the engineer to the weapon system. Engineers are useful crew members, they have a doubled repair speed but deal half damage, so try to avoid letting them fight.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 110
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 110

Also saving your stations can be very useful. There are 2 buttons on the left side in the middle, the one on the left saves the current location of your crew members and the right one sends them to the last saved location. This can be useful if you are sending crew members to different rooms and can't remember which crew member was specialized for what room.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 111
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 111

As always, I jump to the exit beacon. As you can see, I play it quite risky due to the close rebel fleet, but this way I can explore a lot of beacons for more ressources.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 112
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 112

I decline because an upgrade to the piloting system is in my opinion unnecessary, because it gives you the option to have an auto pilot, but he retains only 25% of the total evasion. It is useful so your piloting system can take one hit more, but I skip it in this case.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 113
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 113

This time I decide to jump to an Uncharted Nebula instead of a civilian sector because a nebula allows me to explore more beacons due to the rebel fleet being slowed down.
