As one of the top pilots in the NTF, you have been assigned to an operation that will change the future of mankind...
Release date: July 09, 2009
Required: FreeSpace Open, build 3.6.10 or higher

The missions themselves are not great, and I had the "Transcend problem": the player has to cross a lot of nodes, without anything interesting happening. I'm fairly proud of my cutscenes in CtS_4 and CtS_10 though.
The campaign has received mostly positive reviews from users. Players praised the cutscenes and found the campaign concept interesting and unique, but execution has received mixed reviews. The second half of the campaign is said to be tedious in comparison with the first half.
