I've encountered a spaceship that stated that I have a virus.

I've sent an Engi to talk with them, he disappeared, we had a fight. After the fight he returned 'improved': enter image description here

It looks to good to be true, so - is there a catch later on? or is it part of a quest?


Nope - no catch, at this point he's just a regular crew member (albeit a very skilled one.) He will behave as any other Engi crew would, and will stay with you until your victory / demise.

    So I assume that nothing happens if he dies, or traded also, right? – ShloEmi Sep 23 '15 at 16:45

    @ShlomiOhayon Besides losing the best crewmember you'll ever have, no. – Studoku Sep 23 '15 at 17:28

    It may interest you to learn that he is not the only super-skilled crewmember that you can get as a reward: ftl.wikia.com/wiki/Special_Event_Crew_Members – psyk0 Sep 23 '15 at 19:55
