"strange pod" -> Strange Pod
The undamaged tile looks exactly the same as its normal counterpart, while the damaged tile has a faint, yellow glow originating from inside it. This special tile variant may spawn already damaged at the start of a mission.
Destroying the tile will reveal a '''"strange object"''' hidden inside it; upon being picked up it will broadcast a signal. After the end of that turn, a '''
"strange pod"''' will fall from the sky, similarly to a [[Time Pod]]. Protecting or rescuing the Pod will unlock one of three special [[Pilots]] and grant the [[Distant Friends]] achievement.
== Notes ==
* The special pilots are a reference to [[Subset Games]]'s earlier title, ''FTL: Faster than Light''.
** The sound that plays during the signal broadcast is the same as the FTL jump drive.
pod resembles a broken section of the Federation cruiser from ''Faster than Light''.
