|The Kestrel, the starting ship design|
|The Rebel fleet advances, slowly catching up to you|
|Opening the airlock to starve the fire of oxygen|
|Standard Rebel ship, fighting in a nebula|

Finally, I couldn't talk about FTL without mentioning modding. The game has a solid modding community, producing everything from alternative ship designs to total conversions and the tools required to do some modding yourself. A good modding community can easily shift a game from being good to being great, giving you the ability to change the game in small or significant ways to truly enhance the longevity of the game. One of the more popular mods is for increased difficulty - something I doubt I will ever be using!
|Game over man, game over!|
