Raiding The Supply Convoy

Setup

An enemy supply convoy has been detected. These slow freighters appear to be lightly armed, but are no doubt full of munitions, spare parts and the like.

Unfortunately for them, they've been caught in a celestial eddy and have dropped out of slipstream and has become separated from its escorts. According to Violet, these issues are common in interstellar warfare, but aren't usually that important outside of 10-15 minute delays. With our ability to go anywhere in the system at will, though, we can punish every little mishap and mistake.

Our objectives are to disable or destroy the freighters. Once the convoy is crippled, we'll Jump back to Grand Junction with the crippled vessels. We must be fast: the convoy was escorted by a handful of enemy destroyers, and they will no doubt be doubling back to face us.

Objectives

  • Primary Objective: Destroy or Disable all four enemy Freighters. Freighters count as disabled by crippling or destroying their Propulsion.
  • Secondary Objective: Disable at least two Freighters.
  • Secondary Objective: Disable at least four Freighters.
