Secret ALT Codes:
When you are on the Planet screen, hold the ALT key and type in moola to receive a
bunch of currency. During gameplay, you can hold ALT and type in galaxy to reveal
the local galaxy.
With some careful preparation, you can produce a situation where your enemy is
helpless against your attacks. First, build a ship that has a single missile
equipped (make sure that you're not equipping torpedoes or scatter packs, as those
don't count). As an extra, equip something like the Neutron Stream Projector that
can disable armor. As for general ship specs, make sure that your ship is both
fast and tough. Once you engage in combat with your sleek new ship, disable your
missiles and get close to an enemy ship, until you are within 2 spaces. Now,
fire your weapons at the enemy group, then select the "Wait" option. Provided
you survive any retaliation, you'll get another turn. You should still have
access to any extra weapons, which you can use again. Then wait, then fire your
extra weapon, then wait, then fire the extra weapon, and so forth. Repeating
the process prevents the enemy from being able to fire, and you can keep the
chain going until you finally win.
