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

1 Answer 1


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.

  • It's also sad to see them FTL away with your boarding crew. They are lost forever :(
