Crystal Cruiser (??? Ship) -
Requirements - Not really required but highly recommended...Long Range Scanners and the Rock Cruiser
Have fun with this. This is by far the most annoying ship to unlock. It will require 3 random events to happen. One of those random events happens in a sector that may not even show up for you. So let's get started:
Random Event 1 - The stasis pod
This will come from a distress beacon in the Engi, Zoltan, Rock, or Pirate sectors. The beacon itself will not show an asteroid field (for LRS) however there is one in the event dialogue. If you are in the rock ship, you are guaranteed success for retrieving the stasis pod. Everyone else, there is a chance that the asteroid field and ship just start breaking all around you and you get nothing. But get the pod and we move to the next random event! (As a note the pod does take up an augmentation slot)
Random Event 2 - Opening the pod
This event can be done in the Engi and Zoltan sectors. There is a beacon (nothing special about it for LRS) that some Zoltan will wish to study you, however with the pod you can ask if they can open it. Do so and you will now have a Crystal crewmember! Don't lose him! He's required for part 3!
Random Event 3 - Rock Homeworlds
Finally. You got the pod, you opened it. Now hope and pray rock homeworlds are still on your map. As that's where this ends. The final beacon has nothing special about it for those with LRS. So do yourself a favor and try and cover as much ground as possible. Try to get close enough to every beacon that you can see what's there, go to everything that isn't a distress beacon, or doesn't have a ship, or doesn’t have an environmental hazard
. The beacon should have a quest marker on it due to a recent patch! If and
When you find the beacon you are looking for your Crystal crewmember will give you a blue option and you will get transported to the secret Crystal zone! This is the end. You're good now. There's a quest beacon here so just survive. Survive and then congrats you got it!
Sweet Revenge - Destroy an enemy with a shard from the Crystal Vengeance augment
No Escape - Trap 4 enemy crew in a single room using the Crystal being power or a lockdown bomb
Clash of the Titans - Destroy 15 Rock ships (Pirates count)
1st and 3rd are the 2 I got. First one I found a drone (the crystal pierces 1 shield so in sector 1 doesn’t matter if it has them or not) got it to 1 hp and then turned off my shields and got my pilot out of the room so the drone couldn't miss. 3rd one, find as many rock sectors as you can and fight all the ships you find. Most will be rock. The second one I don’t have yet as I've been trying to test whether or not it works on your ship as well, or if it has to be the enemies’ ship, Michael's comment on this is just below.
From Michael - The crystal achievement lockdown only works on an enemy ship. Bring level 3 teleporter to retrieve your guys as they likely won't survive being trapped in a room with 4 enemies for very long.
The above I disproved on a run I was doing. The achivement No Escape can be reciveed by using lockdown with 4 enemies in a single room on your own ship.
