Having trouble with the hardest mission in the Prologue? Well
here is the trick to it. Your objectives are to complete the mission
while carrying a container full of warheads. But if you get shot
while carrying the container, it blows up and you fail the mission.
First of hyper to RY/2: Twin Suns. Once you arrive target C/C:
Chi 8 and fly towards it. It will be in the hanger on the far side
of the station. Fly into the hanger and pick it up. After you have
secured the container, set your throttle to full and fly out of
the hanger to about 3 km away from the station.
NOTE: Take a course just below the repair arm of the yard and
stick to it. Once you are 3 km away from the station set your throttle
to 0. Now all you have to do is wait for Aeron to activate the hyper
buoy. Be patient, a whole array of enemy craft will enter the area
but none will attack you until right before the buoy is activated.
This is a good time to set your turrets to defensive fire, the "X"
key. The VSDII: Furious will appear with 2 L/C's (Bullpup 1 & 2),
the CRV: Blast Radius, and 3 Rzr/F's. The VSDII will launch 4 waves
of Tie Fighters and 2 waves of Tie Bombers. Once the Tie Bombers
try to get a missile lock on you, you may want to begin to accelerate
your craft from 0 mglt. Once Aeron activates the buoy, dump all
your laser power into your engines and fly towards it. The Tie Bombers
will get a solid lock and fire missiles at you before you reach
the buoy but your turrets will shot down a couple of them and you
should reach it and be able to hyper out as soon as you get within
range. You may want to fire a couple of flares just to be on the
safe side. It is important to hyper out of the area ASAP so that
the missiles do not hit you!
As soon as you come out of hyper space, drop the container, "Shift-R."
Now charge up as needed. 4 Rzr/F will soon enter the area, destroy
them. You can make short work out of them using turret auto-fire,
"F" key. Once the Rzr/F's are destroyed go pick up your container
and fly towards BASE: Azzameen.
Now you have 2 choices. You can wait for Aeron to activate the
next hyper buoy and dump all energy to the engines and hyper out
and watch the next cutscene and complete the mission, or you can
stay and kill as many Imp's from the ISD: Corrupter as your heart
desires. Just be sure to not to let the CORT: Sabra get destroyed
or your mission will fail. If you decide to go after some TIE's
be sure to drop your container first and don't forget to pick it
back up when you have satisfied your thirst for blood. If you have
done everything successfully, welcome to the Alliance!
