As a regular mission, it is good enough. Protect some vulnerable ship while being fast at the guns. Not sure as to whether the mission creator intended it or not, but once you try to reach the highest score possible, then this mission changes. I will give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is on purpose (and for that I change my rating to a 5). Trying to beat the high score is the only challenge. :) The ISD cuts through the strike cruiser like a hot knife through butter (or like a T/D to a T/F). You fly this mission as T/A, but why have Adv Conc Missiles while your enemies have the regular missiles. You are on the clock with this mission. If you are not that fast, don't worry, speed will only matter for high scoring. The mission itself is achievable with more down-to-earth flying.
I found this free mission pretty interesting and not very complicated. There is some dog-fighting, but there are other things involved.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
