On accident I took the medicine needed for an entire planet to survive.
it happens. As for a real review/message to newcomers in case if people get pissed by my quick and unoriginal comment, here:
The game is fun, but can be RNG based, so a great deal of luck is needed for a beginner to win at first. After you start learning your own tricks and tips, the game will be less RNG reliant and more based on skill since you can use that skill to make the best out of a terrible RNG result or maybe even avoid an RNG tragedy entirely.
Learn to play different ships since they are EXTREMELY varied because one may be more fun or easier for you (Those Lanius ships, horry ♥♥♥♥ lol they are fun and easy to command).
You can board, shoot, hack, set aflame, and send drones to kill off a ship.
Don't be discouraged by early deaths since there will be a learning curve. It will get increasingly fun until you actually complete it. Also, Advanced edition made the game very fun. I highly recommending it for a first playthrough.
