comment Which kinds of objects are worth destroying for fragments?
I started getting the 2.5K shards on New Game+, with only 0-1 idol activated, so I think it's a bonus to substitude for the upgrade you already have.

comment FTL - What happens when your crew is full? will you still be offered new crew? can you elect to swap crew members?
Also worth noting that several of the encounter options will change to specifically note that you're full and will have to dismiss someone. (I've seen it on the slavers and the long survivor encounters).

comment How can I repair my O2 Generator in an oxygen deprived ship?
Which is a good reason to upgrade O2 early (even if you don't power it).

comment How do beam weapons damage enemy crew?
Commenting because I'm not sure it's authoritative, but I'm fairly sure damaging the room damages the crew inside. Will pay more attention next time I play with beams.

comment What difference will the more skillful (1 star or 2 star) crew members make compared to a non-skilled one in FTL?
Can confirm that two-star melee is +20% damage (been abusing my teleporter privileges).

comment What is the best ship to start with?
One downside of the Fed Cruiser is that you have to beat the game to unlock it, which means you probably don't need help beating the game. :)

Update: one-star melee is +10% damage according to the tooltip.

comment Does ion weapon damage stack with cloaking and teleporter cooldowns?
Ah. Sadly, not as good as I had hoped - was hoping that the similar countdowns would mean the five seconds would add to the recharge time.

comment Does ion weapon damage stack with cloaking and teleporter cooldowns?
Just to confirm, you mean that if I shoot them with a 1power (5 second) ion, that will add 5 seconds to the normal cooldown? Or is it overlapping?

That's my recollection, but I'm at work right now and can't look to confirm. Will update.

comment How much does the Repair Arm augment repair?
I need to double-check this, but if memory serves, repairing a point at the store costs 2 scrap. So once you're collecting more than 14 scrap you're losing money (or paying for the premium of repairing on the fly).

comment What happens if I jump with crew members away on another ship?
Also worth noting that you'll lose the crew if the opposing ship jumps away while they're on board. (Learned that lesson the hard way.)

Also, repair - decrease time 0%/10%/? (never got anyone up that high).

comment What is the best ship to start with?
I haven't had the no-damage problem with the Engi (well, once, and that's because I was stupid and bought a Beam instead of an Anti-Ship, so that's my fault).

comment Is the Wii-U compatible with Gamecube games?
Not really - GameCube will be two generations old at that point. At some point they have to stop supporting the old stuff.
