    COL Triji Boliv



    All in all a rather boring mission leaving me asking how it relates to an expedition of the knights of the Dark Brotherhood. Surely, inspecting transports and defending a standard convoy is a mission below the purview of our Sith allies?

    COL Phalk Sturm



    Nice battle. Not the usual kill kill kill, but actually following a decent plotline. Protect, dogfight and bomb enemy fleets, mostly in a T/A. Worth a try, not only for the points, but also because it was fun to fly.

    AD Hav Antiel



    This is the second COL Fenn Logan battle that I've flown (I think), and like last time, I found it challenging and complex. It's tough to figure out which ships need to be boarded/captured/attacked in order to have another mission-critical flight group hyper in. Sometimes that seems like more than one step, which is tough when the in-flight messages don't provide direct clues.

    Ouch, i didn't like how the first mission was: kill 6 weak enemy in about 5 seconds with 15 friendly craft, wait 30 seconds, fly 10 clicks, repeat. Most of the missions had long waits and the 1 wave of 1 player craft got annoying. But it wasn't too bad, an overall ok battle

    The enemy forces seem to be lacking in co-oridnation. The missions all need to be fine tuning (arrival points,times,FG orders, and all those other orders with bugs corrected), and give the other side some organisation, too many craft just turn up wave after wave, just to be destroyed. Craft seem to turn up after the FG they're should be protecting has already been destroyed. Sorry but as the battle stands at the moment it was not very impressive.

    MAJ Mairin Astoris



    Enjoyed this a lot - well worth flying... And why aren't there morrrrrrrrrrrre???? Somebody make more DB XvT battles dagnabbit! :P

    GN Smitrock



    yes I agree, sweet battle, very straight forward and I enjoyed the R6 titles :)

    MAJ Erryc Lasitter



    GREAT battle. I'm glad to see such great battles coming out for the Dark Brotherhood! Logan, keep up the good work. You are to be commended! Now...we just need to come out with some DB missions for XwA.....(hint hint)

    Battle Bug Reports

    GN Dunta Polo


    Mission 1: Player craft (depending on chosen FG) starts very close to the platform at 100% throttle, necessitating a sudden turn to avoid crashing into it.

    Mission 2: Player craft (depending on chosen FG) starts very close to the platform at 100% throttle, necessitating a sudden turn to avoid crashing into it.

    Mission 3: Plot inconsistency - TIE Fighters suddenly become T/A and Gunboats? There's no explanation as to where the new craft came from. 18 TIE Interceptors fitting inside a CRV is also dubious.

    Mission 4: Mines have no designation (left as 'unnamed'). Pirate CRV is set to protect EH craft instead of attacking them (and still seems to contain a lot of fighters for its size). Bonus points given for primary objectives?

    Mission 5: Whats up with the comp 9 goal? Bonus points are given for fulfilling part of the primary goal to destroy all Rebel forces (there is also an unnecessary 'destroy FRG Solstace' goal). Rebel FRG Solstace is set to protect EH craft instead of attacking them. Entry point of X-W Nightwing causes some of them to collide with the ISD Sirius midway through the battle.

    In a bid to consolidate control of newly acquired territory, House Taldryan has been tasked to aid a major corporation in determining why pirates have been hitting them harder than any other corporation.  As you progress through the missions, it begins to become apparent that all is not what it seems...
    Some of the missions are actually 3-in-1, depending on what craft you decide to fly: TIE Advanced or Assault Gunboat.  Each has different mission objectives to accomplish.
    My thanks to George Lucas fore creating the wonderful universe to play in.  I was almost AWOL to be enlisted into the army the night Star Wars opened up in 1977.
    Also thanks to Troy Dangerfield for making a hassle-free mission editor.  It's still work designing missions, but it is a very user-friendly program.
