This mission is fairly easy to earn a Top Performance on if you
follow some simple instructions.
As soon as you enter the mission, set ELS to 0/0 and go after
the nearest fighter (T/F Zeta). Tell all of your teammates to wait
using [SHIFT-W] as quickly as possible, disable both Zeta Groups
(2 groups of 3 fighters). Hit the ?R? key and go after the nearest
GUN from flight group Nu. I like to use a 75/0 ELS setting for engaging
the GUNs. You need to disable these as soon as possible--one usually
targets your fellow Rebels. If one of the Rebel ships is destroyed,
you must tell their follow up waves to wait or they will destroy
any disabled ships.
Once T/F Zeta and Gun Nu are disabled, the mission becomes easy.
Go after the CNVYR that is in the area (depending on how long you
took to disable the fighters, there will be a different one). I
like to dual fire ATs at the CNVYR to get it?s shields down, and
then disable it. Next go after the CARG that is in the area. Dual
fire another pair of ATs at the CARG and disable it. Be sure to
ID the CNVYR and CARG to gain bonus points. By now the E/S should
have docked with the PLT and hypered out, this destroys the PLT
and gets you 12,500 bonus points.
Now go after the Containers. You get bonus points for ID-ing them,
so go ahead and take the time to do it. Then destroy them. When
50% of the cargo craft are destroyed, two more GUNs from Nu group
will hyper in and attack you. Disable them as quickly as you can.
Then kill the remaining Containers. When you destroy the rest of
the CONs, 66% of all cargo craft (CONs, CNVYR, and CARG) should
be destroyed, and you will get the mission complete message. You
might have to go after the disabled CNVYR and CARG, however, to
achieve 66%. Once you have 66% destroyed, you are free to go home.
By this time you should have 50,000 points which is enough for a
Top Performance. If you want to stick around for some more fun,
feel free to stay and face the ISD and its fighters that hyper in
when you get the mission complete.
Keep in mind that you will lose the mission if 66% of Rebel craft
are destroyed, so you will have to be quick, and not let your teammates
be killed. The ISD will launch 3 groups of 2 T/Is. Disable these
6 fighters and recharge your shields and lasers. Then kill one group
of T/Is and it?s follow-up waves. Repeat with the other groups if
you want to. When all the T/Is are destroyed you can attack the
ISD if you choose to. When it is destroyed, you will have the maximum
points possible, as no more ships will hyper in. Go home and enjoy
a well earned blue ribbon!
