We drove over to Rileys and met up with Jeremy there.  Wit and his gf stopped by, but didn’t stay for the festivities.  We watched Startrek: Into Darkness and played with the expansion of FTL.  I did pretty well, getting to the final boss on hard mode.  My strategy of choice in the expansion was area control boarding with the crystal ship style b.  It was very powerful, except if running into an automated ship early on.  Luckily the failures made for some early deaths, so I didn’t have to deal with terribly annoying deaths mid game.  I made it to one jump away from the final boss, but the regular ships in the last stand were able to take me down on hard mode.  I should have used the cloak more often, but it kept slipping my mind.
