What happens if I jump with crew members teleported away on another ship? I've never dared try.


They die. Same when the ship is destroyed when they are still boarding it. I have tried it sadly. :(

The game does warn you if you try to jump away before you gather your crew. But the game doesn't warn if you teleport crew unto a ship without life support.

Your crew is also gone when the enemy ship jumps away.

    I like to think they carry on, surrender to the other crew. Become slaves. Someday the escape and settle on a nice planet. Eventually starting a family and struggling to survive in a galaxy torn by war. But they'll always remember the day they had a chance to turn the tide of war. That day they were on a very important mission. The same day you left them behind. – MichaelHouse Sep 23 '12 at 19:15

    Look on the bright side: you only try to board an Auto-Assault ship once. Then you learn that they have no air, and that was a bad idea. I learned this hard, hard lesson before I upgraded my teleporter, so my crew sucked vacuum for thirty long seconds.... – PotatoEngineer Sep 24 '12 at 18:37

    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.) – Allen Gould Oct 11 '12 at 21:42
