FTL Mods Add Ships from ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Firefly’

We’re loving the addictive, punishing time-suck that is FTL: Faster Than Light, but the ships you can earn and fly are not exactly the sexiest of space exploration machines.

That all changes, however, with new mods for the game that can allow you to pilot iconic vessels from various science fiction properties. PC Gamer has done a fine job of running down three great ones from hellcatv. Included are the Star Destroyer from Star Wars, the Enterprise NCC-1701-A from “Star Trek,” and the Serenity from “Firefly.”

You’ll want to start with Grognak’s Mod Manager, found here, which will make it easy to install multiple mods to FTL. After that, you can grab the Serenity mod here and the Enterprise mod here (both replace the Kestrel). The Star Destroyer can be found here (and replaces the Engii ship).

We’re working on more mod coverage for FTL; check back next week.

Why would you want Captain Needa?

He couldn’t spot a YT-1300 Stock Light Freighter if it was hanging off the back of his Imperial II-class Destroyer.

You have Ozzel in there too??

He’d throw away all tactical strategy if he thought he could get the element of surpise.

The only compitent one is Veers and he lost his legs taking hoth because he was to stupid to dodge a snow-speeder.

@Zach

Hilarious :)

There have to be other destroyers in the fleet, though, right? Some that aren’t filled with incompetents?

I’m imagining this one of the ones that drove the Rebels off Dantooine after the Battle of Yavin (mostly because I have no specific knowledge of that battle [other than Battlefront]).

@Phil Hornshaw: The Imperial navy did indeed have competent admirals and pilots and general crew, the most iconic probably being Thrawn and Pellaeon.

Ugh, I read the Thrawn novels when I was like 10 and that dude still creeps me out.

@Zach,

Ah, I didn’t realize those guys were actually on the crew in-game, having not looked closely at the image. Hopefully this is earlier in the careers of Ozzel, Needa and Veers, when they were still swabbing decks and asking why storm troopers weren’t at their posts.

Also, where’s Piett?! The only dude who didn’t get choked out by Vader and he doesn’t get to be on your crew?

As the main idea comes from Battlestar Galactica, that ship should also be there.
