Victory rescuing Uncle Antan
After several frustating retries, I finally succeeded in destroying almost everything in the Rescue Uncle Anton mission. I had completed the mission before by leaving once the Imperials arrived, but I wanted to redo the mission and take them on. This time, I did a better job of protecting Emon from the Planetary Fighters so that he would still be around when the VSD jumped in. The XWA Mission Guide at the CRS Morning Star site was a big help.
Once the initial waves of Viraxo fighters were all taken out, I ordered Emon to inspect the containers while I inspected and destroyed the cargo ships. Truth be told, the two Star Galleons and the shuttle that quickly jumps to hyperspace got away from me while I was battling the Viraxo fighters, but I was trying to avoid constant combat so I could recharge my shields fully before the Imperials arrived. Once the VSD showed up, I took down the TIE Fighters with turrets set to defensive fire, and then prayed that I could survive the onslaught of TIE Interceptors. They dropped my shields to about 40%, but I made it. Emon bolted during the TIE onslaught, so I had to take the VSD down myself. I knocked out the shield generators and then used autofire to finish it off. After that, I destroyed the rest of the cargo containers while my shields recharged, which took forever even with max shield settings. When they were back to about 190%, I docked and picked up Anton, using the turret to fend off the first wave of Viraxo fighters. After Antan was onboard, I undocked and shot down the remaining fighters and then slowly destroyed the Viraxo space station. The entire mission took me about 40 minutes, but it was worth it.
