    I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.


    All was fine and well with this mission until that one mission where your squad destroys the platform when they shouldn't. Its like guys, come on, don't you see our transport trying to capture it? Like missile boat guys, stop shooting it please. In the end I became a traitor and received a demotion for following orders and capturing the platform while killing my entire squad for sabotaging the mission. Fun missions either way.

    I love this battle. Storyline, briefing etc everything is great and the last mission is also a great one. The problems are in the details, which keeps it at a 4 our of 5 and I do agree the first missions are a bit repetitive. Could have had some variation there.

    pretty good battle, no issues with bugs or anything. i played this as part of rtf 21 with unlimited waves. i liked the last missions where all of the star destroyers showed up. i shot out the shield generators and by the time i finished the mission was over

    Excellent plotline and everything revolving the story was very well written and worked to the details. The missions, however, were a bit repetitive, protecting a CRV throughout the campaign, which felt logical since you were the Senator's hired security, but nevertheless the same formula replicated over and over, inspect, protect and dogfight. It even became slightly confusing of who were the enemy since the double-crossing was happening along the missions, so better look after your IFF. With some minor tweaks this could have been one of those jewels, because had it all, originality, a compelling story and sadly, a not-so-good action in the missions.

    An...interesting mission, in which you act as a Senator's bodyguard/muscle as they attempt to create a treaty with an Imperial Warlord. Suffice to say, shenanigans ensue. The story wasn't bad and the missions are mostly bug-free, but the repetitive nature of the missions brings the score down.

    A nice battle, it's flawless in its creation and actually easy to complete on easy. It's held back a bit by repetitiveness (protect CRV several times, and CRV docking sith something every other time), and the dockings cause a little too much waiting time. Not a bad one at all.

    As others have said, it's a pretty straightforward battle with interesting mix of missions. You get a good sense of what it would be like to escort a diplomat to different scenarios. The realism factor is pretty high.

    Bout what i expected from a Senate battle. Reasonable yet long waits at times.

    I must agree... the battle was pretty easy, but, hey, it got me 7 practically free, FCHG points!

    I give it a four because of difficulty. I found it a tad bit easy. However, it's a great way to rack up some easy points. Not bad.

    In the final mission, friendly craft continue attacking the PLT after it has been disabled. I was able to command my wing men to ignore the target, but Vortex Squadron continues the assault and destroys the PLT, making the mission impossible to complete.

    Special Thanks to: CHS Kallath for giving permission to make this battle, Belzedar 
    for volunteering to be the main character and naming everything, Coranel Both for his 
    invaluable knowledge of the Imperial Senate.  And I would also like to thank the 
    Academy for thi...sorry, i got a little confused on that last one :P.
    
    Please read all the descriptions and breifings.
    
    Basic Hints:
    Set the difficulty to easy, most of the missions were completed on easy just by 
    pressing- shift-M and letting the computer do all the work!!
    
    Look for craft attacking the CRV Rociel, these should be your first priority.
    
    In most missions, a flight of T/I's are waiting to reinforce.  Press Shift-S then spacebar.
