Hand-to-hand strategy for taking down the mothership
I've been attempting to take ships by killing all their crew hand-to-hand, and was going to attempt the mothership in a similar way but I noticed they had what seemed like, a million doodz.
After barely scraping by the first stage, I got quickly polished off by a Rebel bomber. I was wondering, if I kill a few of their guys, do they replenish between boss stages?
To answer your question on killing the crew: no the crew won't replenish, so once you kill them they will stay dead. They will of course heal up if they get to the medibay. However there is a drawback to this, if you kill the human crew then the ship will become automated and becomes harder to kill, as it no longer needs humans for repairs / weapons etc.
