Battle Reviews

Overall a fun set of missions that didn't really require all that much effort to be honest. Nothing crazy but also nothing to write home about. The final mission, the easiest thing to do is just go in as a missile boat and destroy the capital ships and then take out all the targets. I do find it weird when two platforms are molded into 1, because it is easy to mess up and kill the other by mistake.

Quite an enjoyable group of missions to be flown. My only issue is that there can be a little bit of waiting around if you finish the dogfighting quickly. No bugs found.

A very good battle. Well balanced missions with a flexible choice of fighters, so player can approach the same mission from different angles. The plotline is well written and throughout the campaign there are a lot of roles to assume. Solid, good battle. Do not miss this classic. The only thing I am not giving it a 5 it's because beam weapons were not available at all.


good plot/storyline to the battle; however, i needed more missiles for mission two & four;p.

A very good battle with an excellent plotline to go with (I love it when ppl pick up EH events and turn them into flying missions). The thing I most enjoyed about it was the choice of flight groups and roles available for the player. The only mission I didn't enjoy was the second one, but the others look good.

Very well designed, very good plotline for a very good comp! However, I doubt my joystick will ever recover from the pain I caused it after mission 3...

A rogue Dark Jedi gets hold of an Astromech containing valuable EHBL data at a transfer
involving the ISDII Relentless. The Command Staff orders the Relentless and its Battle
Group to hunt the Astromech down and retreive it before it falls into New Republic hands.

Story Line

[Read Plotline.txt in your /Misc folder for the debriefings and mission hints.]
[Read the Storyline.htmls in your /Misc folder for the background story.]

To prevent enemy factions listening in on our communications we obviously utilize variable 
encryption on all messages. However, these encryption formats need to be changed regularly 
to prevent giving anyone the time to break it. Previously this process was done manually by 
all officers themselves, which is obviously vulnerable to leaks and very dependant on trust.
To solve this matter the Tactical Office asked the Science Office to device a more 
automatic and secure system, which resulted in the "EHBL Machine" - basically a black box 
that can be hooked up to any transmission device that not only encrypts the messages but 
also alternates the encryption automatically.
Now all Emperor's Hammer craft need to be equipped with the new encryptor, and within a 
short time because a transitional time gives our enemies more chance to break even this 

All kinds of things went wrong at the delivery of the new EHBL Machines to the ISDII 
Relentless. Not only did we have to completely reinstall the software of various craft 
(and some still have problems) it also seemed that many of our crew need complete 
re-schooling to work with it effectively.
Oh, and we had that attack by the NR Spine Security Force on our delivery craft - which 
was not that big a problem for Wing IX. However something did go very wrong in that battle, 
because our Dark Brotherhood contacts inform us that a rogue Dark Jedi somehow got her 
hands on an Astromech droid that carries vital information.
We are hot on her trail though, which has leaded us to the neighbouring neutral Genko 
System. Here she probably hopes to sell off the Astromech to the Genkoan Dons - which is 
about the same as to the entire Galaxy because of their trade ethics.

Although Sword Squadron was successful in catching the rogue Dark Jedi just before she 
actually reached the Genko System, it seems that the damage has already been done: The 
Intelligence Division has reported to us that the Genkoans and the NR Spine Security Force 
have arranged a meeting about "Crypto logical Breakthroughs."
Obviously we do not want this deal to go through: most of our craft have now been equipped 
with the new encryption and it would be a serious blow to our security (if not our budget 
and sanity) if the New Republic got their hands on it.
Dagger, Crossbow and Arrowhead Squadrons will hyper to the location of the meeting, a 
civilian platform on the far end of the Minos Cluster, and capture all craft involved in 
the deal. We need the crews to make sure we have actually stopped the spread of the 

After the right amount of physical motivation the captured crew of the Genkoan Shuttle 
disclosed the location of the Astromech droid that carries the encryption data. They also 
ensured us that no copies had been made because so far the Genko System has not been able 
to crack the Astromech's own encryption.
The Astromech is being held at a lightly defended modified Genkoan Base near Pyrath. We 
again want to capture it in tact to make sure we finally have all the data back. Disabling 
the platform conventionally will however most likely also destroy that data.
This end the crew of the Genkoan Shuttle we captured earlier have been sufficiently 
brainwashed by the Science Office to fly back to their Base and just disable its weaponry 
from the inside. The moment that happens we will launch transports to capture it.

You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) AND the EH Ship Patch for XvT. 
To fly as a team all players need the same version, make sure you all have the 
update by lucasarts installed.
