Sector 4

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 177

I move up to be able to explore more beacons on my path towards the exit.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 178
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 178

I pick

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 179
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 179

the blue option

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 180
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 180

and receive a nice reward.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 181
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 181

The enemy has a Charge Ion weapon and a beam weapon, so disabling their weapons should be enough. In addition to that, there are 3 engineers which are easy to deal with in combat.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 182
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 182

I keep focusing on the weapons

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 183
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 183

After they put out the fires, I teleport in.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 184
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 184

I am able to kill them, but I forgot a crucial system. The fight is not over because there is a clone bay. This is a mistake on my part.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 185
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 185

I move the boarding crew into the clone bay, but it spawned the engineer preventing me to destroy the clone bay.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 186
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 186

This continues so what I decided to do is

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 187
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 187

to teleport 2 more of my crew into the enemy ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 188
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 188

My original boarding crew is very low so I keep on moving them to avoid damage.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 189
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 189

I teleported group 1 back and put 2 energy into the medbay to heal them. Meanwhile is group 2 keeping the engineers busy.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 190
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 190

1 of group 2 is low so I keep him moving while I wait for the teleporter to cool down. I should've put 1 more energy into the teleporter to reduce the cooldown, but you can also "grind" some fighting levels like this.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 191
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 191

I teleport group 1 in, while 2 crew members are destroying the clone bay, 1 crew member keeps the engineers busy in the shield room.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 192
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 192

After the clone bay is destroyed I move group 2 away because both of them are low and let group 1 fight against the 2 remaining engineers.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 193
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 193

The longer fight is slightly over, but it was worth it receiving a new crew member.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 194
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 194

I already have 8 crew members so I dismiss the human Jack.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 195
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 195

Having 2 engis can be nice if one considers the doubled repair speed.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 196
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 196

I move the new engi into the engines because he already had full levels on engines, so I use the Slug and Mantis to board. I save the new station setup.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 197
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 197

On another location, I choose to help them

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 198
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 198

but it was an ambush.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 199
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 199

I keep the 2 Mantis busy by sending my boarding crew in, because the enemy ship does not have a teleporter means that they will not be able to be called back.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 200
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 200

I switch between the boarding crew and the 2 humans who manned the sensors and doors because Mantis are very strong in combat.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 201
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 201

I dealt with the intruders and heal the 2 humans.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 202
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 202

I can't break the shields, the Defense Drone II of the enemy ship can shoot down any projectile, rendering my attacks useless.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 203
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 203

So I board them.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 204
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 204

My boarding crew is at a slight disadvantage because they have 2 Mantis fighting while I have only 1 Mantis and 1 Slug.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 205
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 205

I run away with the boarding crew

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 206
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 206

call them back

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 207
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 207

and heal them up. The enemy does not have a medbay which I can use as my advantage.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 208
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 208

I take some damage by the beam, since it destroyed my vital oxygen system

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 209
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 209

I move my engineers from the weapon system to the oxygen system because I can't pierce their shields anyway. Meanwhile I am boarding the enemy ship

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 210
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 210

I am able to kill of 2 of the Mantis.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 211
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 211

and I can overpower him due to the 2 versus 1.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 212
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 212

I get a pretty high scrap reward and a lot of fuel.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 213
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 213

It is finally time to upgrade the engines. I prioritize engines over shields, but the reason I upgraded shields before engines is that shields are more reliable earlier on. Evasion is superiour though, having around 50% evasion halves the damage you take as long as engines and piloting system are running, this can save you from a lot e.g. missiles which pierce shields.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 214
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 214

After jumping I accept this quest

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 215
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 215

to get more ressources.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 216
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 216

After jumping once again, this dialouge can appear. Do not send help, it often ends with you losing crew members.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 217
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 217

I continue my way towards the quest beacon

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 218
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 218

to encounter this. I sell 6 drone parts, reason for this is I will not need many of those for the endboss, so I don't want to sell 12. Those will be used later once I aquire a drone control.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 219
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 219

I continue my way and encouter a ship, I attack it.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 220
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 220

I try to attack the weapons, but I miss.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 221
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 221

The shots hit after a second time

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 222
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 222

and I teleport my boarding crew in.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 223
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 223

I have the upper hand, my Mantis has more fighting experience and the engi deals only half damage to my Slug.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 224
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 224

I move into another room and let the Slug take the hits by the engineer while the mantis hits him.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 225
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 225

I get a lot of scrap out of it.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 226
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 226

I heal my boarding crew

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 227
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 227

They repair my hull

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 228
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 228

and reveal their store.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 229
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 229

I buy the Reverse Ion Field, a 50% chance to negate ion damage is pretty good and the boss uses Ion weapons too.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 230
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 230

I jump to the next location with another store, but I don't buy anything.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 231
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 231

There is another store which I jump to.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 232
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 232

It doesn't offer anything I need right now, so I keep going.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 233
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 233

I receive some supplies at the exit beacon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 234
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 234

Looking at the map now, I could've explored one more beacon, but it's too late for that.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 235
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 235

The next sector I go to is the Rebel Controlled sector because that will give me the option to choose between 2 sectors after that.
