  • A "ghost" race is hidden within the FTL files. According to the events file, they were to have been encountered by the player's crew during the exploration of a wrecked "ghost ship". It was also suspected to be found in the cancelled "Quarantine" sector. The "ghost" race is available with savegame editors and some mods.
