An interesting premise of a story. I rather enjoyed it! It was unique and each mission organically lead into the next. A+ work with one minor bug in the last mission. Definitely give this one a whirl

A fun battle. Getting disabled in the first mission was a bit different. Minor bug in Mission 6 prevented it from a higher score.

A very original battle, this one. The first mission was a bit tricky to understand, since I hate being disabled, but you will have to in order to succeed the mission. The rest of the battle has an interesting set of assignments in the B-W that will keep player in a challenge. The plotline was very good and the missions almost perfect, if not for the last one which has an innerving waiting that blows off a bit of the excellent experience. For hardcore lovers of the B-Wing. If you hate this fighter, look elsewhere, but if you want something a bit different, certainly give it a try.

Good story, worth more than a 2 were it not for the last mission and that terrible 'Dire Wolf must complete mission' goal. Eight minutes of waiting after the SHU was captured :(

I got my first high score on a mission in this battle, so it HAS to be good...

This is a great battle. Mission 1 has is an extremely well put together mission from a technicial point of view. The plot and ideas really make a lot of sense. I liked how your B-wing slowly ran out of missiles as you went through the missions. My only real problem was in mission 6 there was a bunch of waiting at the end. Besides that, it was a very good fly.

Mission 6: TIE/F Blood attacks TRN Strongarm causing a mission fail.

Mission 1: The traitor craft INT Starnet is marked as friendly. Message about the approaching Gunboats appears when they are already disabling Crusader flight. 'We need to destroy those B-Wings before we can run' should be Interdictors, since B-wings don't prevent hyperspace travel. It isn't clear that you're meant to be disabled either. Briefing icons\\factory label are too close together.

Mission 3: Your flight can leave before the INT Starnet is destroyed. The INT does not fire on the pirate M/CRVs. The TIEs referenced in an in-flight message never launch.

Mission 4: The messages 'Roger that Axis' and 'The Hun is withdrawing' appear far too late.

Mission 5: Briefing icons\\factory label are too close together.

Mission 6: The goal for the VSD Dire Wolf to escape prolongs the mission unnecessarily.

Plotline:
Intel has recently found a hidden Rebel manufacturing facility 
in a remote sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It is believed that a small flight 
can penetrate this deep into hostile territory. Some Imperial signatures have been 
spotted in that area, and we fear an ambush. This is where Crusader Squadton comes in. 
Your flight has been chosen for this assignment. You are to simply go to the 
Manufacturing Facility, destroy an incoming freighter group, and then report back 
to the ISD Dire Wolf.

Mission 1: The Capture.*
                  A simple mission that doesn't go as planned.
Mission 2: The Escape.
                  A daring escape against great odds.
Mission 3: The Pursuit.
                  Trapped and surrounded, how are you going to survive this one?
Mission 4: The Reload.
                  Since you have to go close to the Manufacturing facility again on your 
way back to the Fear, you stop at an Imperial Asteroid base.    
Mission 5: The Revenge
                   At last, Your attack on the Manufacturing Facility.  But does it go 
well?
Mission 6: The Homecoming.
                   Your return to the MC-90 Fear is cause for Celebration, but good 
things never last very long.

*note:  You are meant to be disabled along with the rest of your flight in the first 
mission.  This battle is story driven and requires you to be disabled... so do as 
much damage as possible, but when all other primary objectives are complete, you may 
have to "allow" yourself to become disabled.
