I finally managed to obtain my first Crystal crew member (finally!). I note that he has a "Lockdown" power, as shown in the screenshot below:

Crystal crew member with Lockdown power

What does this power do? None of the tooltips I've seen provide any explanation. When is this power useful?

Lockdown: Active ability that coats the room they're in with crystals, preventing anyone from entering or leaving and making the room itself invincible to damage. The crystals wear off over time, or when attacked. This ability requires time to recharge after being used.

  • Yeah I saw that. And we had nearly identical posts – Lawton Feb 10 '14 at 1:10
  • Ah well, I'll just have to be quicker next time :P. – Robotnik Feb 10 '14 at 1:11
  • BTW I think that wiki is outdated. I definitely remember being able to attack and damage the room with my crew while they where in a locked down room. – l I Feb 10 '14 at 2:05
  • @z- It says that you can attack the crystals, which will make the room vulnerable faster. Thats probably what you saw – Lawton Feb 10 '14 at 2:12

The Crystal's Lockdown ability will block off a room with blue crystals, preventing damage & restricting movement by both friendly and enemy units.

From the FTL wiki:

Lockdown: Active ability that coats the room they're in with crystals, preventing anyone from entering or leaving and making the room itself invincible to damage. The crystals wear off over time, or when attacked. This ability requires time to recharge after being used.
