    • You obtain a L1 Transporter, Level 2 Med Bay, and a Mantis crew member.  Then you travel through as many Mantis sectors as possible seeking the ship, possibly with the aid of Long Range Sensors (possible ship detected), at a beacon that isn't distress or shop.  Randomly you stumble upon the event.  It's not necessary to cheat, may require a few attempts.

      To cheat:

      [Windows PC, where currentuser=current user name logged into the OS]

      C:\users\(currentuser)\My Documents\My Games\FasterThanLight\continue.sav

      C:\users\(currentuser)\My Documents\My Games\FasterThanLight\prof.sav

      [These are the data locations, continue is current save, prof is global.  You can create backups of continue.sav to "save scum" and return to alternate saves by pasting the save file into location while out of game, then loading and using the continue feature.  You can also edit the prof.sav with some experience to unlock them manually.  Both will just ruin your experience.  The game is just repeating a timeline to unlock ships and doing it again, skipping this pretty much makes playing the game pointless.]

    • On mac, the file locations are at:

      ~/Library/Application Support/FasterThanLight/

      [Really, not recommended to do this.  Game experience isn't worth cheating.]

    • Make sure you're playing on easy mode since it'll obviously be easier

      Always aim for red sectors when you jump to the next sector, use common sense and choose a path which will allow you to pass by as many red sectors as possible

      When you get to the Mantis Homeworlds, make sure you have a level 2 medbay and a teleporter (and decent close-combat crew, zoltan and engi not recommended) and ignore distress beacons because you won't find the legendary thief kazaaakplethkilik there

      When you do find him, attack him (or you can hail him if you have mantis, doesn't make a ny difference at all) and teleport your crew over and kill their crew, be warned because it might take a few teleport trips back and forth to heal.

      Once you killed the crew, pick the teleporter option to send crew to search for survivors and when you find kazaaakplethkilik dying in the corner, choose the option to bring him to your medbay to save him and you have unlocked the cruiser!

    • Adding to what Kazaaak said; most likely the enemy ship will have a teleporter as well. It might be helpful if you let them teleport into your ship and kill them there. Less enemies to worry about if you can kill them before their teleport warps them back.

    • If you can get a slug ship, it should be easy, just get level 2 medbay and level 2 sensors. Assuming you don't have one, this will still work, only you'll need to take care not to destroy the ship.

    • Do we really need a teleporter? judging from the event text, it seems we could opt for level 2 sensors instead.

    • Nevermind, already tested this. I spammed ion to their O2 supply, plus one lucky hull laser which blew a fire on their weapons room. They managed to put out the fire but after a while they all died of asphyxiation, fun times. Didn't even know there was an achievement for that.

    • I almost got the mantis ship just now! When the hull was on 3 I remembered what you had to do to get it, and quickly stopped the weapons. Only 1 crew was still alive, so I hoped the fire fire would kill him. Annoyingly, the fire kept destroying systems, eventually making the ship's hull go down to zero! 😰

      Forgot to say that there was currently a fire on the ship xD

      If you have the Slug(A/C, B sucks)/Rock B/Fed C ship, this will be by far easier for you. If not, get a fire bomb asap, upgrade your sensors to level 3, get a level 2 Med/Clonebay, kill Kaz, and enjoy!

      Recommended that you don't cheat, it's so much more fun to toil through it!

      Best of luck
