Enjoyable enough battle with cheats on.
A9 is a good fighter but not used right. YW is just painful.
Play for story and fun as it takes a while.

VA Locke Setzer



It's a bit all over the place, both in design and particularly in difficulty. Hard to get much easier than Mission 2, but then Mission 3 can be quite tricky (with a notable bug of A-9s showing up as TIE Fighters, as already recorded). The Challenge is an Interdictor in Mission 1 for unknown reasons, one of a number of bits of sloppy design sprinkled throughout the battle. It's certainly playable though, even though it's rough going from T/Ds in Mission 1 and 2, to a Z-95 in Mission 3, and then a Y-Wing with janky controls in Mission 4 and 5, before finishing with the A-9 in a mission that doesn't particularly showcase the custom ship well.

COL TheBlackxRanger



After spending a good amount of time trying to get the patches to play nice I was finally able to finish this battle. The battle themselves were fine, wave after wave of starfighters if you like doing that. But having this issue with the ship kinda soured the battle for me

LC SkyShadow



One of the best quality battles I have flown to date!
Though quite long at six missions, you'll find an interesting story line focused on the accidental arrival in a new sector of space where you then proceed to capture the newly discovered area.
The mission briefings and officer text are very well made and well written and the missions themselves are challenging but also of a high quality. Flying unique and Rebel star-fighters helped to keep things fresh, though I did find the general theme to winning each mission to be the same.
The missions are very challenging on all difficulties.
An excellent battle!

LC Rando



A somewhat long battle. Most of the missions are the same general theme. Destroy fighters and capture a platform or starship. The plot doesn't really have much going for, mostly serving a reason to fly rebel craft. It's sometimes nonsensical too, particularly the mission with the Z-95. The missions start out somewhat complex, but get weaker and simpler as the battle progresses. They're not entirely bug free, with some potential issues with starships that might require some consideration to work around. The biggest flaws here are that the missions are just boring, and the fighters aren't really utilized to showcase their strengths and weaknesses when most of your threats have advanced missiles. It devolves into a minigame of herding the AI to deal with missile locks, which you would be doing anyway, no matter which craft you were flying.

LC Gen Es'mith



Not much good can I say about this battle. Its one messed up battle and you have to basically hack the thing to get it to work. Make sure that you read the updated patch file to figure out to get thru mission 3. Also instructions need to be added to the readme to make sure that you turn on the rebel fly all patch with the EHBL. Did I mention that I really hate capture missions, especially every mission more or less in a battle? >:(

CM TK-9780



There's nothing you can say really good about this battle, ok story-lines a good idea, although the rest if just .....! Don't play this battle unless you really have too, and only then if someone if threatening to wired your genital's to car battery.

COL Dirty Vader



Annoying battle. Mission 3, you can't even play properly because you need to change the name of a file. Then when you do manage to play that mission, your craft's manoeuvrability is so crap (when you jink to the right it goes to the left) you cant even play properly. In last four missions you fly crap ships, while the enemy launch multiple waves at a time of adv concussion missiles at you. Anyway, dont fly this battle unless you really have to.

MAJ Calvin Senzin



The first two missions were fun, but the rest sucked big time.

AD Troutrooper



The plot is great, though the missions kinda suck. i dont fancy capture operations in every mission. plus, a lone Z-95 v. 4 A-9s w/ missiles is wrong. just wrong.

Battle Bug Reports

GN Master


-Mission 1
--Challenge is a INT not an ISD

-Mission 3
--A9 enemy fighter group 'A-9?' is assigned the wrong ship slot so they appear at T/F -as per previously reported.

-Mission 5
--TRN board wait time is excessive - 7 mins.
Then doesn't head home.

MAJ Hermann


Isnt a bug but a detail
In mission 3 you must face A-9 fighters but appears T/Fs named A-9FG. This is a design bug cause before A-9 patch use T/F slot.
changing ship type by the slot 11 the mission runs as the designer wished
