Battle Reviews

RA Genie



It's ok. Some design flaws and some weird decisions but it's clear the mission creator was aiming for fireworks and in terms of fireworks this mission delivers. Be aware that to inspect a TUG you have to fly to within 0.03 of it.

COL Phalk Sturm



Good mission riding the Space Cadillac and doing what it does best. Lots of dogfighting and some bombing too. Some good minutes of pure fun in the T/D against fighters, bombers and some capships. Worth a try and a joyful FCHG point for the tipping jar.

COL Rau Aznable



This mission has some action with close encounters and it's fun. I don't give it a 5 because of the useless inspection and wait at the start of the mission.

CM Sirik Xirok



Very good, would have goten a 5 but it's just very simple.

GN Abel Malik



heh heh, fun for all;p.

Balance of Power (BoP) Free Mission

Title: 		 First Come, First Serve
Missions:	 1
Author: 	 WC/GN Smitrock/Wing XX/ISD Subjugator
Game Platform: 	 Balance of Power (+patch)
Patch Used: 	 TIE Defender


The Imperial.lst replaces your original file, so back that up!

- This is a little more complicated. Go to the patch archive of the Science Office at and download the TIE Defender 
patch. Read the installation instructions of both and install them accordingly.

1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your BoP one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.
3] Press the Balance of Power button to start BoP and fly the battle.
- Create a new pilot for the mission based on your name or PIN and the mission number. 
For example, SL Stele playing Free Mission 80 would make a new pilot file named "StelFM80." 
or a Pilot with PIN 2883 playing Free Mission 69 would make a new pilot file named "2883fm69" 
- Begin flying the first training mission.

WING XX OPERATIONS: First Come, First Serve


Commodore Grail Soulchaser faces the row of Squadron Commanders which fill the first row.
"It's come to the attention of the Emperors Hammer that a deserted Rebelian Starship has 
been located near the Upsilon Cluster.  The exact coordinates are still being calculated 
and will be ready by launch time."

Commodore Grail steps back then faces Wing Commander Smitrock.
"Please General"

GN Smitrock gestures to RA Grail and steps forward to begin his combat briefing.
"This abandoned Rebel ship holds great significants. During the battle of Endor it carried 
the complete codex of the Empires spy satellite network. When used the Rebels would have 
total manipulation of the satellites causing communitication disruption, classified system 
locations and other important Imperial tid-bits. If our sensor readings are correct the 
satellite codex is still installed in the ships main computer. Remember gentlemen, the 
codex must simply be destroyed. As you guess the primary objective is the destruction of 
the Starship. The Starship class is a MC80a Calamari Cruiser. Be aware that as we speak New 
Republic engineers are already working on getting the CRS back online in attempts of 
downloading the codex. Don't be fooled, theres no doubt that the Republic will have a 
strike force near incase of Imperial intervention."

"Commanders Phoenix Man, Slyth, Tainer, Dae, Falcon, ready your Starfighters, I will be 
joining you on this missions as well."

GN Smitrock stepped back and started towards RA Grail while in the background the pilots 
exited the Breifing Room.

You need XvT, BoP (or at least all the ships involved there) AND the SCO Patch for the
TIE Defender.
