Yes; I believe you get a "blue" option.

Some of the stories are very convoluted and require choices made over two or more dialogues; sometime sthese need more than one upgrade. checkout the wiki fir info. the crystal story (with the life pod) is crazy.

This is a great game :)

My pro tip - Never take on the giant spiders!! Unless you have a blue option.

Other than that, visit as many stars in the first two sectors as you can, leave it as late as possible to jump to the next sector.

Build your shields up to level 2 by the end of sector 1.

There are other tips, but i am on my phone and would take too long for me to write :)

Sorry for the thread bump, but I wanted to share just how well my latest FTL run went. I used the second layout mantis ship so its all spoilered for those of you that haven't unlocked it yet and want the new ships to be a surprise

I took the second layout mantis ship. It might not start with any weapons but I managed to pick up a pretty impressive arsenal along the way without spending a penny.
I also lucked into a pretty good crew, letting me use 4 mantises for fighting (that 4 man teleporter is amazing), and a selection of others for running the ship.

By the time I reached the final stage of the boss everything was fully upgraded except for the oxygen, piloting, sensors and doors, which were all one off of the max level.

I completely smashed my previous best score too

The devs working on FTL have announced a few more details on the advanced edition update: http://www.ftlgame.com/?p=621

The major addition is the new race called the Lanius and its ship. Not only do the lanius not need oxygen, but they will drain the oxygen from the room they are in. I can imagine this will make a few laniuses a fearsome boarding party, but incredibly difficult to work with for other races. I just hope that these laniuses dont make the already overpowered method of teleporting aboard the enemy ship and killing them off even easier than it is now
