    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.
