Battle Reviews

LC Tempest



It's not a bad mission, but not really innovative (just another dogfight) and, what's worse, you don't have to fight at all if you don't want to. The mission totally solves itself for you.

MAJ Brad Tack



This was a cool mission, but I don't see how Khaen could get that high. :-P

FA Xavier Sienar



Kinda boring, but hey it's a T/F! Challenge... yummy... Nothing like facing a whole squad in a single, unshielded ship.

COL Beef



I always welcome the challenge of flying a T/F. Great plot, too.

COL Scoser



Challenging & reasonably fun--as long as you don't get shot down right away...

LCM Frost



A fun little mission, although a bit easy even on the HARD setting. I would recommend it as an interesting training mission.

SL Jonathan



This mission is a short, easy, yet fun mission. You should be able to complete it within in a few minutes unless you want to take out the platform. The only problem I found is that is it a little too short, but that is a very minor comparison when you look at the fun factor. I highly recommend this mission!

	WC/COL Ricardo sat back, and thought for a moment, 

	"I'd have to say the most challenging battle I've been in, was when I escaped from 
the Rebel think-tank I was imprisoned in."
	"For those of you rookies who haven't bothered to read my biography, I was 
kidnapped at the age of six by Rebels.  I had shown great signs of intelligence, and was 
taken captive on Ryloth.  I served in a Rebel think-tank for ten years, every day provided
a new challenge.  I was forced to study battle plans and tactics, starship systems, and 
Imperial plots.  My mind was being primed for a life as a scientist and technician.

	One day, at the age of sixteen, myself, and two other captives, a Human, Jon Salle,
 and a Rodian, named Quoo.  During the one hour of free time we were allowed a day, us 
three tapped into the platforms internal databanks.  We shut down-Everything- but life
support.  Our training had paid off!  We snuck down the quiet, dark corridors, until we 
reached the think-tanks hangar.  I boarded a battered TIE Fighter, that us pupils had put 
together one day in class, and left the hangar.  Quoo and Salle got into a Y-1300 Freighter
and also exited.  It wasn't until later that I learned that Salle had downloaded the 
platform's entire databank and had it on the Freighter!

	Outside the platform, the Rodian sent a distress signal to a nearby Imperial fleet.
We figured we were going to get away safely, that is, until a Rebel fleet paid a visit to 
the think-tank.  Two heavily Modified-Correlian Corvettes, a couple flights of Y-wings and
three flights of X-Wings quickly began attacking us!  I started to take out the X-Wings, 
one by one.  Quoo and Jon Salle began to fire proton torpedos at the Corvette.  Things 
began to look bad, the Y-1300 was
on the verge of being destroyed, and my T/F's Shield and Damage Indicater showed that my 
hull was cherry-red! Finally, two minutes into the battle, that the Imperials arrived!

	A Victory-Class Star Destroyer jumped right into the battle, and immediately began
taking out the Corvette.  A flight of TIE Interceptors screamed out of the VSD's hangar 
bay.  I was ordered to leave the battle and enter the VSD Nomad's hangar.  The Y-1300 did 
the same.  The think-tank was taken under control by the Imperials as well. 

	After questioning us, the Imperials set us free, and we went our separate ways.. I
became a smuggler, eventually was invited to join Thrawn's fleet, and one day, became a 
pilot of the Emperor's Hammer. And you know the rest of the story.."

	"Pshaw, that's all?" asked a Lieutenant.

	"That's all!?!" said Ricardo. "I'd like to see you take out eight X-Wings while 
flying a TIE Fighter, that barely has a hull, while a Correlian Corvette is firing on you!"
