......Is Volkov overpowered? O.O

I killed the Kronosaurus in the system just before Charon, and I got Volkov right after. Taking him into Charon made things ridiculously easy. It would have been easy enough with a +fast Lancer cannon, but Volkov seemed to be nearly invincible against the pirates. What's he carrying on that Wolfen o...

Upgrade to something other than laser. (check the F1 menu to see all the damage types, in order I believe) Heavy plasteel armor, for example, resists laser and kinetic by +300%, but particle and blast by only +25% (meaning laser damage is ~1/4thed against it). as armor level goes up, so does resist...

Aaaand yet another stupid death...

I just did my first Korolov mission. Got hurt pretty bad. My forward segment of armor was down to 10 hp, and the Korolov station didn't want to repair it (though it repaired all the others). So I undock and I'm about to use armor patches, when the station gets swarmed by Vikings and a Charon Frigate...

Stats

I've seen a lot of posts with statistical readouts pulled from ingame. The only info I can find so far on how to get those says to press F2, which doesn't work for me. I'm playing v 1.01.

Korolov will give you a targeting rom instead of the visual display enhancer if your visual display is enhanced already. Haven't seen any Korolov outposts yet either. Usuallly I find one no less than two systems in. Oh, well, I'll keep looking. I've had to resurrect twice already, so I may just sta...

Yeah, I've got about 70 Stilletos in my missile queue, along with just under 200 Longbows and 10 Brutes. I do pretty well with the Longbows, if I'm shooting at long range (eyeball a shot towards the bright red dot :)) My main weapons are a Shuriken and a Flenser, with a mining laser for backup. And ...

Where are the targetting ROMs? Seriously?

So, I'm about 6 systems in. I've made it to Rigel Aurelius. And somehow, I haven't seen a single targetting ROM. Anywhere. I'm about at the point where it's essential for survival. Should I be looking anywhere in particular to find one?
