The image probably speaks for itself.

The first stage of the final boss in FTL; a deactivated boarding drone is occupying the isolated gatling missing launcher area.

Is there any way I can entice my boarding drone to come back? If I deactivate/reactive it with power allocation it just goes to sleep and wakes up. It can't go anywhere else and it can't do anything useful where it is.

  • At least it hit the missiles.

    @aslum: Actually, it managed to hit the missiles I had already blown up. :(

  • That is AWESOME. I thought it was going to be a request to recover the drone part, but that is fantastic.

Wow, that's an interesting case.

I'm going to guess that you can actively fire on the room with ships' weapons and then destroy the drone, which would ready it for re-deployment. It's not a fast solution though, and there exists the real possibility that you will have destroyed the enemy before you "free up" the droid.
