    Simply excellent. A mission with a lot of moving parts, a nice storyline and all of it packed into a single mission. There is one issue whereby if you don't inspect the CORT before it dies, you are screwed and the mission doesn't tell you are screwed but otherwise an excellent mission.

    This was a nice mission, but could have been so much better. As it happens frequently with budget cuts in the imperial arsenal, some genius is deploying MIS without beams. Brilliant. No rockets, of course, it would have been too easy. But besides these frequent mistakes, the mission was fun to fly and worth a try, though not an easy fast point maker.

    Play it for part of the series then erase it from your mind.

    Plotline:
    
    Subject: Operation Achilles Heel
    Clearance: Level 1 Classified
    
    From Report of General Malik, Commander Praetorian: Approximately six months ago, an operation  
    was ordered to uncover the true nature of a secret project in the Greeop System.  We had been hearing 
    about this project for months.  Typhoon Squadron was dispatched to capture the Rebel Frigate Echo 
    Hawk, which was promptly re-outfitted for a journey deep into the heart of Rebel Squadrons space.
    
    Upon entering Rebel space, we discovered that the Rogue Dark Brotherhood was working in conjunction with 
    the Rebels on the creation of a new Super Star Destroyer that was outfitted with a nearly inpenetrable 
    shielding technology.  
    
    Despite our efforts to destroy the SSD Chi Long before the shield came online, it escaped and has been 
    subject of great concern in Intelligence circles.
    
    Orders: The ISD Challenge will travel to the Verpine Outpost Aragok and meet with the DREAD Argonaut.  
    Our contact there, rogue Verpine, has been developing a means to shatter the Chi Long's shield.  We have 
    paid a considerable sum for that information.  Ensure his safe escape into our hands at all costs.

    LAST WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR:
    
    This mission was created for the competition "XvT Free 200" by Vice Admiral Master.  It is part of the
    Family Affair Series, which will probably feature three battles (1 BoP, Two XWA) and two free missions
    by the time that it is finished.  Enjoy the mission!
