The Aftermath

Mission Filename: sm2-01a.fsm


Command Briefing

Stage 1

GTD Galatea

Ribos System

2/11/35

Tombaugh Station Attack

We've just received some discouraging news from Terran Command, pilots. At 0300 today, after the captured Taranis was towed to Tombaugh installation in the Ribos system, the Shivans staged a major ambush. There isn't a lot of confirmation from the footage yet, but it's clear that a Shivan destroyer of massive proportions jumped in and destroyed Tombaugh station, along with all its defenses. We have designated this new class of Destroyer "Lucifer".

Debris from the station is still falling from orbit on Ribos 4.

Stage 2

The Lucifer

Terran and Vasudan fighters and cruisers engaged the Lucifer, but were wiped out quickly. Footage suggests that the Lucifer was using a new type of shield, impervious to any of our attacks. Needless to say, this is grim news. If the Shivans indeed have managed to shield a vessel of that magnitude, it's merely a matter of time before they wipe out all front-line installations and march through to our home systems.

Stage 3

Dimplomacy

Since all attempts at communication with the Shivans have ended in violence, it appears unlikely that a diplomatic solution will work.

Stage 4

System Status

At this point, the Shivans have control of Beta Cygni, Betelgeuse, Ross 128, Ikeya, and Regulus. Most of the Vasudan forces are gathering in Vega for a counterstrike, while we are gathering our fleet in Antares for an effort to retake Ribos and Beta Cygni. Oddly enough, the Shivans don't seem to be interested in taking control of any planets in the systems, or gathering natural resources. Instead they seem to be focused on controlling individual jump nodes.

Stage 5

New Technology: Flail Cannon

Research and Development teams at Sol have recently completed development on a few new weapons.

A group of Terran scientists has returned from a previously unexplored system known as Laramis, and bring with them a new weapon called the Flail.

The Flail is quite different from our typical energy cannons. Please consult the weapons database in the Tech Room for more details.

Stage 6

New Technology: Interceptor Missile

Our communications with Vasudan technicians have yielded the Interceptor missile. By combining the Vasudan-designed engine with a Terran warhead, we were able to produce the most powerful anti-fighter weapon yet. It's an aspect-seeking missile, and requires a few seconds to lock onto the enemy's engine signature, but its speed and accuracy make it lethal. Use it well.

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

The survivors of the Tombaugh attack must be evacuated from the Ribos system immediately. We do not have sufficient firepower to retake Ribos at this time. Your wing's objective is to escort the Iota transports.

Stage 2

Other wings will be accompanying this convoy. Alpha wing will be in charge of this operation and will have command authority.

Stage 3

The convoy must reach the designated checkpoint. Escort from this point onward will be provided by allied Vasudan forces, led by the PVD Pinnacle.

Stage 4

Hostile forces have been spotted all over this system, and there is a good chance that our convoy will be attacked by Shivan fighters.

Stage 5

All hostile forces should be eliminated.

Stage 6

The PVD Pinnacle will be arriving at the designated check point. This Typhon class destroyer has one of the most skilled crews in the PVE. It will escort the refugees for the remainder of their journey.

Stage 7

Help the Pinnacle until it has dismissed you, then return to base. Many lives depend on this operation. Good luck.

Debriefing

Stage 1

Your primary objective was to escort the transports to the rendezvous with the Pinnacle. They were destroyed and hundreds of innocent lives were lost. Such failure cannot be tolerated in the GTA.

Stage 2

Great job, Alpha 1. You managed to save all three of the Iota transports from the Shivan attacks. We were told by the crew of the Pinnacle to congratulate you on a job well done. The civilians on those transports owe you their lives as well.

Stage 3

You safely escorted some of the refugees in Iota and for that you are to be commended. It is unfortunate that so many had to lose their lives. They will be mourned.

Stage 4

Epsilon lost all of Omega wing. The Shivan war machine is fast taking its toll on our population.

Stage 5

Beta could not protect Sigma wing, and all of the Sigma transports were destroyed. Admiral Halkins, a 10 year veteran of the war and a great soldier, was on Sigma. He will be greatly missed.

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

Red Alert! The GTS Asimov and the GTC Ravage are under attack in the Antares system.

Stage 2

Red Alert! The GTS Asimov is under attack in the Antares system.

Stage 3

The GTS Asimov was working on project Tsunami, which involves hyperreactive substances. These substances are extremely volatile. If the Asimov is destroyed, the reagents are likely to reach critical mass. Analysis predicts a shockwave of up to five kilometers in radius.

Stage 4

The station is in bad shape. We need to clear the area, then transport the scientists out of there.

Stage 5

When the area is secure, the GTT Spomer will jump in and retrieve the scientists. After they have been safely evacuated, return to base.

Stage 6

We have 5 ships waiting in the hangar. We have no time to get them fully loaded out, so you'll need to use what you've got. Suit up! You're launching in two minutes.

Debriefing

Stage 1

Great job, pilot. You managed to protect the Asimov. All the data for project Tsunami has been secured, and it should be completed within days.

Stage 2

The crew of the GTC Ravage thanks you for saving their lives. The Shivans will find their assault on Antares far more difficult with the Ravage on board.

For saving the crew of the GTC Ravage, we are awarding you the Medal of Conspicuous Gallantry.

Stage 3

The destruction of the GTS Asimov has struck a major blow to our attempts to preserve this sector. Due to the loss of the Asimov's data, Project Tsunami is no more.

The prospect of destroying Shivan cruisers without the Tsunami bomb is daunting, to say the least.

Without it, we have no chance of destroying enough major Shivan vessels to win this war.

Command Briefing

Stage 1

GTD Galatea

Antares System

2/15/35

Our Mission

The Hammer of Light has decimated the Vasudan fleet at Vega. Most of the surviving Vasudan forces have retreated to Deneb and Antares. Because our fleet is also holding Antares, relations between the VPE and the GTA have been strained.

In order to quell the tension, we have been ordered to eliminate all Hammer of Light outposts in the vicinity. Fortunately, we have some new tools to assist us.

Stage 2

New Technology: Phoenix V Missile

Our first new weapon is the Phoenix V anti-bomber warhead. This missile can puncture even the thickest of shields, and can also be used effectively against larger targets, like freighters. More details are available in the Tech Room.

Stage 3

New Technology: Medusa Bomber

We have also acquired a wing of the new Medusa bombers. Though they are slower and less maneuverable than the Athena, they are far more powerful. Once again, full details can be found in the Tech Room.

Stage 4

New Technology: Tsunami Space Bomb

The new Tsunami bomb is the ultimate anti-cruiser weapon, and can be carried by the Medusas. Just a few of these will take out any cruiser, and the Hammer of Light Aten-class cruisers are no exception. You'll be using this bomb quite often against major Hammer of Light outposts.

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

Here in the Antares system we have detected a small HOL base of operations. Your squadron is being sent to eliminate it.

Stage 2

You will destroy all Hammer of Light ships, then jump back to the Galatea. The Galatea will be monitoring you in case the situation gets out of control. Good luck.

Debriefing

Stage 1

We are pleased that you were able to suppress the Shivan influence in the Beta Aquilae system. Their arrival was unexpected, and battling the Shivans always takes a heavy toll on our forces. Fortunately, we can take some bitter comfort in the fact that they "helped" us eliminate the Hammer of Light presence in Beta Aquilae.

In light of your recent achievements in protecting GTA space from the Shivan threat, we are awarding you with the Distinguished Service Cross. You are truly an outstanding pilot.

Stage 2

Upon evaluating this mission, we have concluded that the Hammer of Light was gathered in the Beta Aquilae system only to lure the Shivans to the area. Now that a Shivan presence in Beta Aquilae has been established, God help the Alliance.

Stage 3

It saddens us that this mission cost the Alliance so many of her fine pilots. It is our duty to honor their memories. Tragedies such as this must strengthen our resolve against our enemies.

Where Eagles Dare

Mission Filename: sm2-04a.fsm


Mission Briefing

Stage 1

In this mission we will be assaulting a secondary supply and rearming facility under Hammer of Light control. It is located in an asteroid belt in the Antares system.

Stage 2

Intelligence indicates the main defenses will be two sentry guns and one wing of Vasudan fighters.

Stage 3

Recently, the transfer of cargo into this area has increased dramatically. It appears to be coming from the Ribos system.

Stage 4

This jump node to the Ribos system is approximately ten kilometers away. It will be the only means of escape. All of the Gemini transports and freighters must be destroyed before they reach the subspace node.

Stage 5

A wing of GTA Freighters will come in to recover remaining cargo. Keep the area secure until they are finished. Good luck.

Debriefing

Stage 1

While you managed to secure the jump node, it is unfortunate that some of the Hammer of Light transports escaped. We can only hope the supplies they carried won't harm us in the future.

Stage 2

Excellent work. The area has been secured and no Hammer of Light ships escaped. Your persistence in accomplishing your objectives is to be commended.

Stage 3

Because we were unable to secure the jump node, our forces will not be able to reach Vasuda Prime. The Hammer of Light's Typhon-class destroyer, Anvil, has positioned itself at the jump point, blocking our escape. It seems only a matter of time before we are destroyed by the Shivans.

Command Briefing

Stage 1

GTD Galatea

Antares System

2/19/35

The Tombaugh Attack

Terran Intelligence has spent the last two weeks analyzing flight data from the Tombaugh station attack. The data on the Shivan Lucifer has been given special attention. Intelligence believes the Shivans were tracking the captured Taranis Cruiser through subspace to the station.

Stage 2

The Lucifer

Intelligence doesn't know how the Shivans tracked the Taranis escort, but they've got a team of engineers trying to figure it out. They are also analyzing the shield system on the Lucifer. Unlike the shields on the Shivan fighters and bombers, this shield appears impervious, not merely resistant, to all of our weapons.

Stage 3

The Shivans Attack Plan

With the loss of Tombaugh Station, the Shivans have gained control of the Ribos subspace node. That leaves only two subspace jumps between the Lucifer fleet and the Vasudan homeworld.

We must defend Vasuda Prime. Not only is it the humane thing to do, but it's in our own interests. If the Shivans gain control of that system, it will be a short walk to Earth, itself.

Stage 4

The Location of Sol

While their proximity to Earth is cause for concern, we have no reason to believe that the Shivans know the location of our homeworld. There are dozens of star systems off the Ribos node and the Shivans will likely have to examine them all. It is obvious, however, that they are narrowing it down, and we can't afford to give up one more inch.

Stage 5

Our Orders

The Lucifer-class Destroyer was last sighted in the Ribos system, leading us to believe that Antares is the focal point for the next Shivan offensive. We're going to move the Galatea and its fleet to the Beta Aquilae system, in case the Shivans decide to attack Vasuda Prime through there.

Command is sending another Orion-class destroyer, the GTD Bastion, to the Antares system to help us with the blockade. But for the time being we're the only defense.

Stage 6

New Technologies: Hercules Fighter and Synaptic Cluster Bomb.

I am pleased to announce we have two new weapons to use against the Shivans, the Hercules Heavy Assault Fighter, and the Synaptic cluster bomb. You may study these in the Tech Room. They will prove very useful.

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

In order to protect Vasuda Prime, the GTD Galatea will be moving from Antares to Beta Aquilae.

Alpha and Beta wings will provide escort.

Stage 2

The sentry guns surrounding the jump node were severely damaged in the recent Hammer of Light attack. Alpha wing will inspect the sentry guns, to determine if they are salvageable. Beta wing will provide cover.

Stage 3

The Galatea will jump into Antares, reset its coordinates, then jump to Beta Aquilae. Lately, the Hammer of Light has been attacking all ships passing through the jump node. It is your responsibility to destroy all enemy ships that you encounter.

Stage 4

After the Galatea jumps to Beta Aquilae, you will be contacted by the Detiula Installation in the Antares system. There you will receive your briefing and move on to your next mission. Intelligence has specifically requested you and your wing for these missions. Good luck, Pilot.

Debriefing

Stage 1

Jumping out of a mission without even making an attempt to complete your objectives is gross negligence and borders on desertion.

Your hearing is scheduled for 0700.

Stage 2

The destruction of the Galatea is a major loss for the Terran Alliance. Thousands of lives were lost due to your poor execution. Perhaps this task should have been given to a more skilled pilot.

You are hereby stripped of all rank and duties in the GTA.

Shell Game

Mission Filename: sm2-06a.fsm


Mission Briefing

Stage 1

We have reason to believe that the Shivan Destroyer Eva is in the Antares system near the Antares-Vega Jump Node.

You will jump to this subspace node and investigate. Destroy all hostiles.

Further orders will be given to you in-mission.

Delta wing will be flying Medusa bombers and will assist you. If you need further assistance, you may call in Epsilon wing. Galactic Terran Intelligence out.

Stage 2

This isn't a bug because this stage doesn't ever get shown in a Red Alert briefing. Please don't report it as one.

Debriefing

Stage 1

We are disappointed that you saw fit to ignore a direct order and destroy the Shivan cargo. We had hoped to examine the cargo to learn more about the Shivan technology.

Stage 2

We have recovered two of the abandoned cargo containers. Intelligence believes analysis will prove useful so that the Stern and Dobbs won't have been lost in vain.

You are awarded the Good Conduct medal for your continuing service to the Alliance.

Stage 3

It saddens us that so many pilots lost their lives in this mission. Fortunately the recovery of the Shivan cargo containers means their loss was not in vain.

Stage 4

It took great skill to destroy the freighters while preserving the cargo. Well done, pilot.

Stage 5

That you were also able to destroy all Shivan transports is impressive.

Stage 6

Leaving the area before completing mission objectives is gross negligence. Because of your cowardice, innocent lives will be lost. Such conduct can not be tolerated.

Enter the Dragon

Mission Filename: sm2-07a.fsm


Command Briefing

Stage 1

GTD Galatea

Deneb System

2/20/35

Our Orders

We are under general quarters because a fighter patrol detected advance ships from the Lucifer fleet approaching Vasuda Prime.

Somehow, the Shivan forces have circumvented our blockade at Antares, and now control the Deneb system. We are en route to Deneb as we speak. ETA is thirty-five minutes, so when you leave here, report to your wing station for immediate mission briefings.

The Lucifer itself is behind the vanguard force, so we can expect it to make an appearance at any time.

Stage 2

New Technology: Ulysses Advanced Fighter

The Vasudan-Terran Ulysses project has been completed, and the Galatea has received a complement of these fighters. It is the most maneuverable craft ever developed by the PVN or the GTA, and it should be extremely useful in this next series of sorties. It can also be equipped with the Prometheus cannon, the most powerful cannon weapon we've ever developed. Use them both well.

Stage 3

Capturing a Shivan Fighter

Intelligence has concocted a daring plan to enable us to learn more about the Shivans. We are going to attempt to capture a Shivan fighter. Suit up and report to your wing stations for briefings immediately.

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

The Shivans have established quite a base of operations in the Deneb system. They have multiple supply depots scattered across the system, as well as several repair centers for their damaged fighters.

Stage 2

Each of their repair stations consists of a Cain-class cruiser and extra supplies. The Shakti is one such cruiser in the area.

Stage 3

All fighters in the area around the Shakti are damaged and in need of repair. This makes them easy targets. One of our objectives in this mission is to put this repair station out of commission. This will greatly reduce Shivan capability in the Deneb system.

Stage 4

All the fighters in the area near the Shakti are damaged and in need of repair. This makes them easy targets.

Stage 5

One of the fighters being repaired by the Shakti is a Dragon-class fighter, designated ' Arjuna 1'. The Dragon is the Shivans' most maneuverable craft, and the most dangerous.

Stage 6

Intelligence has requested that we capture the Dragon for research purposes. Since the Arjuna 1 Dragon is very low on power, it is in a weakened state, and is the best candidate for this operation. You must disable Arjuna 1 by destroying its engine subsystem.

Stage 7

Once Arjuna 1 has been disabled, the Charon will dock with it and jump back to the Galatea. We must capture Arjuna 1. We cannot allow it to be destroyed. To this end, we've equipped your craft with an advanced disruptor cannon. Use it to take out its engines.

Stage 8

Since this station is so poorly defended, we are sending only Alpha and Beta to attack. Alpha will cover Beta until the Shakti has been destroyed. Then Alpha will attempt to disable Arjuna 1.

Stage 9

Since this station is so poorly defended, we are sending only Alpha and Beta to attack. Alpha will cover Beta until the Shakti has been destroyed. Then Alpha will attempt to disable Arjuna 1.

Stage 10

If Alpha fails to disable Arjuna 1, Delta wing will be available. As Delta is currently guarding the Bastion, we will only send them in if it is imperative. However, we believe you can do it without their help.

Stage 11

Because we are custom outfitting your ship, you will not be able to customize your loadout. You have your orders. Dismissed.

Debriefing

Stage 1

Great work Alpha 1. We've destroyed a Shivan repair depot, and managed to get ahold of an intact Shivan fighter. Our technicians are currently working on reverse engineering it.

Stage 2

For your excellent piloting abilities, the GTA has decided to award you the Distinguished Flying Cross. Congratulations.

Stage 3

Your failure to destroy the Shakti has crippled our chances of holding the Deneb sector. Such critical failures cannot be tolerated.

Stage 4

Good work destroying the Shakti. Delta wing was successful in capturing the Dragon-class fighter. However, due to Delta's absence, the Bastion took quite a beating near Deneb 3. She survived, but is in need of repairs. It is unfortunate that you needed their help to disable a single Shivan fighter.

Stage 5

You were specifically ordered not to destroy Arjuna 1. Yet it was destroyed. Such insubordination cannot be tolerated. While we regret having to do so, we are grounding you for the next three months.

Playing Judas

Mission Filename: sm2-08a.fsm

Command Briefing

Stage 1

GTD Galatea

Deneb System

2/31/35

Our Orders

We have now entered the Deneb system. After your investigation of the Lucifer at Antares, Terran Command has deduced that the Shivans will be attempting a multiple pronged attack on Vasuda Prime coming from Deneb and Antares.

The Intrepid and the Minnow will be in charge of protecting the Antares-Vasuda Prime node, while the Galatea and the Bastion will be guarding Deneb.

Stage 2

The Shivan Attack

We expect the main force of the Shivan attack will come through Antares, led by the Lucifer. A smaller secondary force, led by the Demon-class destroyer Eva, will come through Deneb. The Shivans already control the Vega-Deneb Jump Node, so our defense will have to be at the Deneb-Vasuda Prime Jump Node.

Finding and destroying the Eva destroyer is our top priority.

Stage 3

The Captured Shivan Dragon

As you know, we captured a Shivan Dragon-class fighter in Beta Aquilae. Our technicians have retro-fitted this alien fighter with Terran instrumentation and gotten it into working condition.

However, there are a few flaws with our redesign. We could not get the Shivan weaponry to operate, so this fighter has been equipped with Terran weaponry. We also could not properly operate the lateral thrusters or afterburners, so the ship's maneuverability is limited.

We also have had some difficulty with the Shivan engine systems. In test runs, the Dragon broke down for short periods of time. We are looking into this problem as we speak.

The capture of this Shivan fighter will bring great strides in fighter technology to the Alliance.

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

In this mission we will be using the captured Shivan Dragon-class fighter on a scouting mission in the Deneb system.

Stage 2

The Shivans seem to be bringing in a large number of vessels into the Deneb system through the Vega jump node. We believe this is in preparation for a preliminary assault on Vasuda Prime.

Stage 3

Because the Shivans have tight control over the Vega-Deneb jump node, we cannot send in a Terran scout. By flying the Shivan Dragon, we believe you will be able to slip in undetected.

Stage 4

There are four Shivan fighters in the area, maintaining tight patrol. If you come into close range with these fighters, they will certainly scan your ship, detect your presence, and open fire. Avoid contact with any of the Arjuna fighters.

Stage 5

Arjuna seems to be maintaining consistent patterns in their patrol.

Stage 6

On arrival, observe their flight pattern and plan your course to avoid contact.

Stage 7

In the event that you are engaged by Arjuna wing, return to the Galatea immediately.

Stage 8

Your primary objective is to conduct a close scan of all ships that pass through the Vega-Deneb Jump Node. This includes warships, freighters, and transports. Try to determine the contents of any cargo containers in the area, as well.

Stage 9

We have reason to believe that a Shivan Demon-class destroyer, the Eva, will be passing through this area. If it does, it is imperative that you scan it. Remember that your fighter is only partially functional, and it's flight systems will behave unpredictably. Be careful. Command out.

Debriefing

Stage 1

You failed to scan enough ships for Intelligence to analyze the Shivan forces effectively. With the Lucifer class destroyer in the area, we are in grave danger. Your failure to collect the needed data will have dire consequences.

Stage 2

You were unable to stay in the area long enough to get a clear reading on the Shivan attack force. This failure will cost us dearly.

Stage 3

Pilot, you bring us terrible news. If both the Eva and the Lucifer are here in Deneb, it will be extremely difficult to stop the Shivan attack. Still, you did an excellent job scanning the Shivan warships. Well done.

Stage 4

It is unfortunate you were unable to get readings on the Shivan freighters and transports. It would have been useful to know what supplies the Shivans were bringing into the area.

Stage 5

The fact that you were also able to scan the Shivan supply ships is truly outstanding. Your courage and piloting skills are to be commended.

However, the news is bad. The Shivans have enough supplies in those ships to sustain a lengthy assault on Vasuda Prime. We believe their attack force will consist of at least eight full squadrons of fighters, both Genma cruisers, the Eva, and the Lucifer. Things do not look good.

Stage 6

The cargo you identified contains parts for Shivan fighters. This leads us to believe that the Shivans will set up a base in the Deneb sector, near Vasuda Prime. This information will be invaluable in planning our counterstrike.

Evangelist

Mission Filename: sm2-09a.fsm


Mission Briefing

Stage 1

The Eva has entered the Deneb system. She is fully armed and is poised to attack the Deneb-Vasuda Prime jump node.

Stage 2

She is protected by Arjuna and Krishna wings.

Stage 3

Alpha wing will lead an attack squadron to destroy the Eva. Alpha will fly bombers. Gamma and Beta will cover them.

Stage 4

We suggest you damage the weapons subsystem on the Eva before you launch your Tsunami bombs. This will prevent the Eva from shooting them down.

Stage 5

You may need to call in a support ship to rearm yourself. It is estimated that at least 20 Tsunami bombs will be needed to take the Eva down.

Stage 6

Destroying the Eva is imperative. With the Lucifer in the system as well, we cannot tolerate the presence of another Shivan capital ship. Good luck.

Debriefing

Stage 1

If you were playing this through a campaign, you would never see this. It would take you straight into the next mission.

Stage 2

You failed to destroy the Eva. We cannot hope to defend this system against two Shivan capital ships. We will now be retreating to Vasuda Prime, where we must make a stand.

Doomsday

Mission Filename: sm2-10a.fsm


Mission Briefing

Stage 1

The Galatea is under fire from Shivan forces and looks sure to be lost. Long range sensors indicate at least four wings of bombers and interceptors. The Lucifer is also somewhere in the area. The Galatea must be protected until we can evacuate the personnel.

Stage 2

Good job destroying the Eva.

Debriefing

Stage 1

The Galatea has been destroyed. Many lives, many friends are gone. Everyone in the Terran Alliance feel this loss deeply.

Yet, greater is the tragedy of the Vasudans. There is nothing between the Shivan fleet and Vasuda Prime. Soon their homeworld will be gone.

Our fighters fought bravely to preserve the Galatea, but there was nothing to be done. The Lucifer was too powerful.

Stage 2

The Galatea has been destroyed. Not by the hand of a cruiser or a destroyer. But by a bomber. This is truly a sad day for the Alliance. If a squadron of bombers can destroy one of our flagships, how can we defeat the Lucifer?

Stage 3

You fled the most important battle of your career. The Galatea has been lost and the people of Vasuda Prime are doomed.

Such cowardice is unconscionable. You are permanently grounded.

Stage 4

Many lives were saved by the Hermes escape pods. For that we are thankful. But we mourn the loss of Admiral Wolf. He was a great commander and he died with the ship he loved.

All surviving pilots are reassigned to the GTD Bastion. Though we all lost friends on the Galatea, there is no time to mourn the dead. The fate of the Alliance is grim.

Stage 5

For surviving the death of your capital ship, and saving the lives of many others due to this, the GTA has awarded you the Galatea Survivor.

Stage 6

Countless lives were lost in the destruction of the Galatea. The Shivans even destroyed many of the escape pods.

All surviving pilots are reassigned to the GTD Bastion. Though we all lost friends on the Galatea, there is no time to mourn the dead. We hope for the chance to avenge their deaths.
