FTL: Faster Than Light!

So now that Day[9] has sufficiently (and hilariously) humiliated himself over this fun multitasking game, I wonder if anyone else around here has played this game?  And for those of you who haven't but want to, it's $10 on Steam and GOG, and it's great fun~

I feel like it would be great fun if anyone wanted to come discuss gameplay, tactics, items, and strategy~
