Each ship comes with 3 of its own specific achievements. Accomplishing 2 of these will unlock the Type B layout for that ship.
- Have six unique aliens on the Kestrel Cruiser simultaneously.
- Have every system and subsystem installed on the Kestrel Cruiser at one time.
- As the Kestrel Cruiser, repair back to full health when it only has 1 hp remaining.
- The easiest way to do this is to build up some scrap and find a store near an asteroid field. Once you've killed the enemy, unpower your shields and let yourself get hit until you're at 1 HP (remember to have your crew constantly repairing the ship or damage systems could destroy) then jump to the shop and repair.
- With the Engi Cruiser, have 3 drones functioning at the same time.
- With the Engi Cruiser, destroy an enemy ship using only drones (no weapons).
- This achievement is easiest with Auto-scout ships in Sector 1.
- Have 4 enemy systems or subsystems ioned at the same time while using the Engi Cruiser.
- Note: ion damage from ion storms counts towards this achievement.
- Have your crew kill a burning enemy on their ship while using the Rock Cruiser.
- While using the Rock Cruiser, destroy an enemy ship which has a defense drone deployed using only missiles.
- Find the secret sector with the Rock Cruiser.

- With the Stealth Cruiser, get to sector 8 without jumping to a beacon with an environmental danger.
- Use only the Artillery beam to destroy an enemy ship while taking no hull damage.
- This is easiest in sector one against an enemy with no missiles.
- While using the Federation Cruiser, use your crew in 4 special blue event choices by sector 5.

- Artillery and Drones can be used to improve your damage output without new weapons.
- Destroy a ship before it gets through the Zoltan Shield.
- With the Zoltan Cruiser, have 29 power in systems at the same time.
- This does not include subsystems; you will need all 25 reactor points and 4 Zoltan crew members powering systems.
- Using the Backup Battery subsystem will count towards this achievement in the Advanced Edition.
- Get to sector 5 without upgrading your reactor in the Zoltan Cruiser.
