While trying to achieve the 'Tactical Approach' achievement, I've encountered with the below event (see picture).

Scans reveal a large asteroid field nearby. Short-range scanners may discover useful materials while we wait for the FTL to recharge.

If I attend this event, will it affect the 'Tactical Approach' achievement? enter image description here

  • BTW - This happened more than once in the game, so keep in mind...

According to http://ftl.wikia.com/wiki/Tactical_Approach

It also seems that any "normal" beacon where you choose to, for example, explore an asteroid field, will cause you to fail the achievement.

It goes into more detail about other failure events but this suggests that if you choose to explore you will fail the achievement but if you ignore it that it won't.
