Battle Reviews

RA Genie



One of Ender's better battles. Well-crafted, the briefing is good the missions are also leading to a very appropriate and fitting climax. The ship selection at the end was also... appropriate. No spoilers, give it a spin.

COL Phalk Sturm



An excellent battle, an original story line, a high level of technical development. Rescuing Mrs. Havok and the Jr. was a very nice change from the usual kill kill kill plots. Flying the Phalanx Gunboat and the TIE Dragon, were also great treats as well. A very good battle, do not miss it.

HA Frodo March



Excellent Battle with a very nice plotline and some never before seen things. I hate M/PLT :P And TIE Dragon's are nifty.

Story Line
Mission 1: Sector Admiral Havok's missus gave birth to a lovely bouncing baby boy in a hospital on 
Aurora Prime and she's taking the newborn to see his proud father stationed on the SSD Avenger. The 
SSD Avenger is currently in orbit around Eos, the moon that houses the headquarters of the Dark 
Spectre Squadron of Wing XVIII is assigned to intercept the Shuttle carrying the proud mother and to 
escort it safely to the Avenger's Hangar. No trouble is expected: with an SSD and its entire escort 
being in the area no-one would be brave, or stupid, enough to try anything.

Mission 2: The insolent and brutish kidnapping of SA Havok's missus and son has caused ripples of 
disbelief and shock throughout the Emperor's Hammer Territories. That anyone would be daring enough 
to attack the SSD Avenger from close up and do such a thing was basically unforseen.
Obviously we are now dead set on freeing the kidnapped woman and child. Because we had the task of 
protecting them, our wing could be seen responsible afterall. Our Wing Commander, LC Andrijas, has 
submitted all his forces to this task.
The first matter at hand is finding the kidnapees. As we have a good indication on who the culprits 
were, the attacking forces were clearly from the mobster run system of Genko, we are heading over to 
their system and do some looking around. There's no need to show any mercy.

Mission 3: The inspection of the last Genkoan platform yielded at least one result: apparently the 
Genko System was being paid by the New Republic Spine Security Force to kidnap SA Havok's family and 
had already handed them over. 
The leader of the NR-SSF, the Duke, has already sent in his "ransom note": The Emperor's Hammer is to 
hand over the Minos Cluster. Obviously we will not succumb to such blackmail and will now look for the 
kidnapees in the Systems held by the Duke already. Our spynetwork is buzzing with activity, so we have 
a good idea where to look.

Mission 4: Our last attack on an NR-SSF platform was partially sucsessful: We were able to free 
Mrs. Havok and she has already been reunited with her husband.
However, it seems the devious Rebels had split up the kidnapees and the baby was no-where to be 
found on the platform. Mrs. Havok did overhear a few conversations though and thinks her baby boy is 
held aboard a NR-SSF Cruiser in the Turnaki System, not far off from the Minos Cluster.

Mission 5: With the Havok family happily reunited and safe aboard the SSD Avenger it is now time to 
punish the culprits responsible for all of this. Luckily we have received information about a transfer 
of sorts between the NR-SSF and the Genko System, probably involving the final payments. This offers us 
an excellent opportunity to strike both parties in one go.
SA Havok will personally lead the strike in his private fighter, allowing him the sweet taste of 
revenge. The SSD Avenger Wings will offer support and escort. 

GENERAL: You need BoP (or at least all the ships involved there) with EHSP and the two patches.
