The Last Stand

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 411
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 411

After some dialouge, my hull gets repaired. This is the final sector and I will have to face the Rebel Flagship. He has 3 stages. I will explain these in greater detail after doing some last preparations.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 412
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 412

I have to get to the base, so I move to this beacon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 413
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 413

I try to avoid fighting this enemy so I hack its drone control. The weapons can't pierce my shields.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 414
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 414

My teleporter and shields get hit because my shields get overwhelmed by the high amount of drones.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 415
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 415

After my FTL drive is ready, I jump to the Repair beacon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 416
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 416

My hull gets fully repaired and I get some nice ressources.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 417
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 417

I fix the teleporter, shields and doors which have been hit,

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 418
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 418

heal my crew members

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 419
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 419

I now do some upgrades on my ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 420
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 420

I upgraded my shields to 3 and my engines up to 45% evasion. My weapons have enough energy to run all 4 weapons.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 421
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 421

I jump to the location of the Rebel Flagship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 422
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 422

This is the final fight. Stage 1 consists of the Rebel Flagship shooting all of his 4 threatening weapons.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 423
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 423

He cloaks at the beginning of the fight.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 424
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 424

He hacks my hacking system, this allows me to ignore his hacking system because it will do no harm to my engines/weapons/shields.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 425
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 425

I teleport my boarding crew into the missile room, the advantage of that is that once that guy is dead there won't be anyone manning those guns in future stages, making the boss easier.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 426
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 426

I then attack their laser weapons, ignore the Ion weapon (very left) and the beam weapon (very right) for now because if you disabled the missiles and laser weapons in this stage he can't do any harm.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 427
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 427

He hits my drone control so I move my humans in to repair it immediately.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 428
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 428

He will cloak again, but in the meantime my boarding crew keeps on hitting the missile weapon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 429
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 429

After the missiles launcher is destroyed, I teleport my crew back

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 430
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 430

and heal them up.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 431
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 431

I destroyed the beam gun by shooting at it and now board the Ion weapon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 432
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 432

I teleport my crew back once again.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 433
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 433

I then destroy the laser gun, the ship is now not able to attack in any way.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 434
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 434

I then attack the shields, I don't need to be careful since every weapon is disabled.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 435
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 435

That was the 1st (and probably easiest) stage.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 436
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 436

I do a reactor upgrade with the little scrap I have

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 437
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 437

and jump to the Rebel Flagship's next location.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 438
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 438

The second phase, note that the Ion weapon is cut off the ship and there is noone manning the guns. The boss is focused on drones in this stage so disabling the drone control is crucial.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 439
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 439

I teleport my boarding crew immediately into the missiles launcher room while waiting for my Charge Ion to get additional charges. I also disabled the medbay and the hacking system and put that energy into the Defense Drone. Reason behind that is that the Defense Drone I will shoot down boarding drones which are very hard to deal with. They create a breach in the room they crashed into, have 150 health and are strong so having the Defense Drone I is very useful here.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 440
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 440

I teleport my crew back and fired a few shots with the Ion weapons to reduce the shields. The missile launcher is destroyed so I do not have to worry about that.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 441
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 441

I focus my efforts on the drone control because the ship uses power surge drones. This is a short period of time where the Flagship sends a very high amount of drones to attack my ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 442
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 442

I keep firing on the drone control and teleport my crew into the laser weapon room.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 443
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 443

After taking care of the laser weapon, I teleport them back.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 444
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 444

I now focus on the drone control since the enemy has only a small chance to inflict damage on my ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 445
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 445

I killed off another crew member while he was trying to repair the drone system

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 446
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 446

and finish it off by keep attacking it.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 447
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 447

I use the scrap to do another reactor upgrade

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 448
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 448

and jump to the beacon the Flagship will go to.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 449
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 449

I fire all of my weapons straight away to destroy the Zoltan shield as soon as possible. Meanwhile I keep my mind controlled crew member busy. This stage is dangerous because it either shoots 8 heavy laser shots at once or regenerates its Zoltan shield.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 450
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 450

I continue to fire my weapons at the Zoltan shield. He tries to board me and I keep the mind controlled crew member busy.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 451
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 451

My teleporter is on fire and my doors are broken.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 452
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 452

My piloting system is also damaged.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 453
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 453

I take a lot of damage and can't deal with this current situation so

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 454
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 454

I jump away. I have now time to take care of the fire, the teleporter etc.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 455
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 455

After I repaired everything and healed everyone

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 456
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 456

I wait because my current location is the one the Flagship will jump to.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 457
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 457

My crew member is mind controlled.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 458
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 458

I shoot everything to disable Zoltan shield. I also activate the Defense Drone I to shoot down some missiles.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 459
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 459

I send in a crew member to keep the mind controlled crew member busy. After I took out the Zoltan shield, I teleport my boarding crew into the missile launcher room.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 460
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 460

The crew member keeping the mind controlled human is low on health so I send him to the medbay. My engines have been damaged, but only a bit and my hacking module is destroyed and on fire.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 461
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 461

I send in both engineers to take care of the hacking system. The missile weapon is also disabled.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 462
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 462

After extinguishing the fire, I send the engineers back. There is no need to repair the hacking module since I'm not using it. My engineer in the weapons system is mind controlled which is quite a big deal.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 463
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 463

This situation looks bad, my teleporter is damaged, the piloting system is on fire and destroyed resulting in 0% evasion and the weapons system can't be repaired until the mind controlled engi comes back to his senses. On top of that, my hull is pretty low.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 464
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 464

The engi finally regains control and barely survives. I send him to the medbay immediately. The fire in the piloting system has been taken care of.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 465
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 465

I keep on shooting the mind control and try to repair the teleporter.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 466
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 466

I send in the Mantis and the human who repaired the teleporter into the laser weapons room to disable it.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 467
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 467

The other human, the engi and the slug are now fixing the breach. I open every door inside to spread the oxygen.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 468
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 468

The weapons are fully fixed and I keep the focus on the mind control.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 469
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 469

After finally destroying the lasers, I teleport both back. My pilot has gotten mind controlled though.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 470
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 470

This is a huge mistake, but I tried to take down the mind control. I killed every human so the AI takes over which is more difficult to deal with.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 471
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 471

It charges a new Zoltan shield which I try to destroy. The pilot has come back to his senses and I move the slug towards the teleporter.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 472
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 472

I heal the engineers a bit because I am afraid of them dying by a stray shot.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 473
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 473

The AI can repair the weapons, so I teleport my boarding crew into the missiles room again because it is currently the biggest threat.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 474
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 474

After doing so, I teleport them back. Meanwhile I charged my weapons and I am waiting for the Charge Ion to get its 3rd charge.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 475
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 475

I have a lot of problems to get through the shields because it evades a lot of my shots.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 476
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 476

And again I missed a lot of my shots.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 477
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 477

I send in my boarding crew out of desperation because my hull has currently only 3 HP. I send them into the engines and try to do as much damage as I can.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 478
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 478

With the broken engines I am finally able to get through the shields

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 479
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 479

and destroy the Rebel Flagship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 480
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 480

I beat the game, unfortunately I lost my boarding crew but it was all for the greater good.
