damaged stasis pod Crystalline Cruiser quest
Is that thing bugged? or am I missing something? I keep finding the damaged stasis pod but I never find the freaking Zoltan research facillity or get a quest to go there..

you need to get to zoltan space to find one of those facilities. there is no quest marker for that. Nor for the rock home world after that. Quite a few random elements have to line up together for that ship.

I came so dang close to completing this quest... I got the pod, found the research facility, but I couldn't get to the dang Rock homeworld... At least I got a cool looking crew member, until I blew up in the next sector. I freaking hate this game so dang much!!!
(Goes back to playing more FTL)

It takes a lot of luck, but it's meant to. Not only does it help unlock the unknown ship, but it also brings you into an entirely new sector that has unique encounters, shops, etc. throughout.

Check out the 2nd video in this thread, it'll give you an idea of what you're looking for and what you'll encounter.

I was lucky enough to get this unlocked, but yeah it requires all the random events to que up, and for that it requires that you actually have zoltan sector and rock homeworld in your flightpath.

So I've got this unlocked(and it's B version, which is better), but I still don't have stealth ship, or rock/mantis/slug ships.

I managed to get the Crystalline ship last night, it's quite strong ship early on as it has 2 piercing weapons at the start (no ammo needed). Later on you will need something vs stronger shields or you won't be able to do any damge. The Aliens themselves have 125 health and an ability to lockdown a room (i.e. stop anyone entering or exiting) for about 10 seconds.

The special augment for the ship gives you a 10% chance to launch a broken shard when you take hull damage which acts as a missile vs enemy ships.

The events can actually be found in several sectors(except for the rock homeworlds one, which only shows up in rock homeworlds). While the first one has a distress beacon(I think), the second and third do not. The Zoltan Science event happens in some of the same sectors as the Damaged Stasis Pod event, so you have a chance of immediately unlocking the pod.

Oh and btw even if you unlock the stasis pod and get to Rock Homeworlds, there is no marker or tip to where the wormhole is. You have to get pretty lucky to hit the right area (rebel fleet might even make it impossible it some instances if you've gone too far out).

I was able to get the crystal dude, but died later in that sector before I could even try looking for rock homeworlds.

Couple days ago I wasn't able to get the stasis pod, but then I ran into like 4-5 of the zoltan facilities. Just kept accepting the experiment for the free scrap but was pissed that I didn't have the pod.
