FTL: Waverider

[Part of the Adventures in Space journal]

Yeah, lots of the team are busy elsewhere.

"Shouldn't we wait for the others?" asked Zari as she put on her seat harness. "Nah, they'll be fine!" assured Sara as they powered forward with their new goal, but almost immediately bumped into a Rock trade ship who, fearing pirate attack, were asking for an escort to a nearby planet.

"We have to help them," declared Zari. "It's what heroes do!"
"Not heroes," Amaya corrected her. "Legends."

Sighing with agreement, Sara turned the ship around - taking the Rock merchant safely to his desired planet, only to find the rebel fleet arriving at the spot at the same time! Sara is forced to use some advanced piloting to avoid blasts from the elite cruisers until the Waverider can FTL jump out of there! It is a time ship after all!

Flying into a nebula sector to lose them, the girls then encountered another Rock ship under attack from pirates! Without hesitation they flew in and rescued them, eliminating the pirates and freeing their Engi prisoner Shirai who joins the crew. As with all Engi, she gains a bonus to repairing while is less proficient at combat.

As thanks the Rock merchants who are actually Federation loyalists donate a good amount of supplies, as well as a powerful glaive beam which Zari installs. Sara manages to try it out on a few unfortunate rebel scouts. It takes long to charge, but it is awesome to use.

Insight: Hold down the mouse to draw a line for beam weapons to strike, hitting as many rooms as you can by specifically using angles and edges. You only need to touch a room to damage it!
