The rebel ships use advanced technology, and are often better than the other ships at their stage. Rebel crews can be destroyed by boarders, as they only have humans. This is not true for pirated ships, which can even have Mantis.

Rebel Fighters typically use Basic Lasers, Burst Laser Mk 1, and Small Bomb in earlier sectors, with Heavy Lasers also commonly used but initially depowered. In later stages these can become quite a threat with Burst Laser II and sometimes even Burst Laser III, Heavy Laser II, and breach Missiles. In sectors 5 and up crew teleporters are common but luckily the rebel ships always have a crew of only humans. Even if the ship has a medbay it can be defeated with a 4 size teleporter and at least 3 mantis for boarding with one other crew member.

Rebel Riggers often use drones, countering missiles and often ships without combat specialists as they send in boarding drones. Rebel Riggers are usually encountered trying to jump away for some reason so target the cockpit and drone control before moving on to the weapons after shields are down. System Repair Drones are almost always aboard these ships after sector 4. Beam weapons are often encountered on these ships and it is not uncommon for a Rebel Rigger to have one Beam Drone and a Mini Beam with no shield damaging weapons.

They can have up to at least 4 Drones, some time they "overcrowd" the drone control room and, as a result, make repair impossible after it's shut down.

You will encounter Elite Fighters if the rebel fleet catches up with you, or at the last sector, The Last Stand, where you will commonly fight these at different beacons. It is recommended to stay away from the rebel fleet in the early stages until you manage to upgrade things like your shields, engines and such. Except for encounters with these ships in The Last Stand, it is generally best to jump away once your FTL is charged, as the pursuing rebel ships provide no reward other than one fuel. Note: Elite Rebel fighters can have TEN in weapon levels.
