GN Triji Boliv



Whee! Interesting plot line. Any battle starring Locke and Chris is instantly a classic.

COL Dirty Vader



I like this battle. Why? Because it makes use of uncommon ships, we are not used to fly. I agree with the others that the E/S is a pain, because of it's lasers. Though the plot is excellent and the caracter of Chris McCollum is an exact replica of the real man :P

VA Locke Setzer



I recently played this again for kicks and am giving myself a 4 because, well, the Escort Shuttle really does suck ;P It was a last minute change though... originally I had it designed so that you flew the YT-1200 and had to depend soley on missiles... I believe the TAC office, however, required me to change that, so I just choose a ship, mayhaps out of a bit of anger that my YT was getting scrubbed, that would be a pain to hit anything with so that I 1) wouldn't have to change the mission design much and 2) the final mission would still be rather difficult for high scores :P Anyways, it's still my favourite battle I ever made and gives me a laugh, so have fun with it and give it a try, I promise it'll be an experience ;)

COL Rau Aznable



This battle is very good and original, and the briefings and debriefings are really worth it. But those transports... bad idea. It's really hard to aim in the escort shuttle, cause those lasers do not converge. The only poor mission is the first one, the rest are cool.

CPT Jaques Landeux



Yay, great battle because of excellent story! I loved mission 3 :P shuttle in miss 4 was strange to fly though

FA Brukhar



bleh unnecesary use of annoying ships i like some interesting ships, but c`mon, we dont need a mission with a SHU, a T/B, a TRN and an E/S...thats just annoying because the Shuttles have wide cannon fire, and the TRN and T/B have like no defense. :P i liked the plot tho, was cool

GN Master



Only loses a point cause the Escort Shuttle is a pain to fly. Other than that its great, and im featured which is always a plus.

Colonel Locke Setzer, bored with his life as a FM in Omicron Squadron onboard the ISD Colossus, calls
up his long time friend and protege, Captain Chris McCollum. McCollum, however, is not in good shape.
He is on the verge of an emotional break-down, having begun to crack under the pressures of commanding
Tempest Squadron, Locke's former squad, on board the ISD Challenge. Locke decides Chris needs to get
out of there for some R&R, and proceeds to steal a shuttle from the Colossus hangar bay, plotting a
course to the system where the Challenge is stationed. Upon arrival, Chris quickly launches into an
escape pod and board's Locke's shuttle. The two quickly attempt to leave, with Chris being left in
charge of navigation. But, math has never been one of Chris's strongest subjects...

Note: Keep in mind, this battle does make full use of difficulty levels. If you're looking for a challenge,
set it on Hard. If you just want to go through a battle and enjoy it, set it on medium. If all you want
are FCHG points, put it on Easy. As for high scores, I didn't really design this battle for that, and
would really prefer if it was not flown for the purpose of obtaining them.
