This mission is for competitions, to put it bluntly. You fly against a never-ending series of NR ships, working your way up from Z-95s. The plot and briefing are actually pretty good and make it fairly memorable, but I did find it to be a very frustrating mission. Why? Well, even on hard the enemy can't hit the broad side of a barn. You're actually in very little danger of getting shot down. Unfortunately, the enemy AI is pretty bad at flying, too, and tends to fly right into your unshielded TIE while you're dogfighting. This would be less annoying if you weren't captured and your pilotfile wiped if you did. The only way to complete the mission, at least for me, is to play for X minutes and then quit. I did several 20+ minute runs but kept dying to debris or ramming, so the pilot I submitted for the comp was only a 5 minute run because I was too frustrated to waste my time trying for better.

It's a great concept, but it needs tweaking or perhaps porting to XvT.


Pffff... no bugs. Funny plot. Funny messages and super-funny animated briefing. And since you fly a shieldless TIE Fighter vs. The world and I found it funny I give it a 3.
And I've been so damned kind here that I'd prefer not to explain the 3 any further (I couldn't).

Introduction
-------------
This mission is part of a series of free missions that just test possibilities of the games and create a 
"different" type of mission... ;)


Story Line
----------
During a hard night boozing on SCOtch with the guys from the Science Office in the Sovereign Lounge you found
yourself agreeing to the most insane bet ever: That you'd be able to beat the entire New Republic fleet in a 
single TIE Fighter. 

The morning after the night before, they seem like they've forgotten... And you have a mission scheduled in 
30 minutes.

...

...

(damn that headache)
