This is one of those eccentric missions from Ender. Basically, fly a T/I unshielded, to protect boarding craft back and forth to the ISD, but in Ender's comedic world is about a plumbing gone wrong and how to prevent the flood of smells and dark waters. Challenging and somehow long, it's worth the FCHG point of plumbing work.

Although the plumbing humour doesnt do it for me, the mission itself is decent. Dogfight in a T/I, albeit never felt threatened. Potential high score chaser. Gives you inflight voice as well which is a welcomed bonus. Some of the voices sounded stoned. :P

Story Line
----------
also see http://www.gimmie.tudelft.nl/homes/blok10b/ender/vanguard/vib/

  The plumbing problem on the storm trooper decks is getting out of hand. We need to get 
it fixed and quick or the whole Vanguard will be lost!
   We found a plumber with the right credebtials in the yellow pages and the COM flew his 
M/FTR the Luggage there with Python Flight II as his escort.
   After finding out about our problems a very evil rebel infiltrator got them to drink 
lots of very fine Corellian Whiskey to give his own forces time to attack the Platform of 
the Plumbers.
   The Vanguard has hypered in to save our men and more importantly: the plumbers! Make 
sure that the Platform, The Vanguard, the Luggage and at least one of the Containers 
survive and that the Rebel Frigate is destroyed.

NOTE 
-------------------
You need the XWA (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know
no other patches are needed.
