Bringing The Hammer Down

Mission Filename: Templar-01.fsm

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

Congratulations, pilot. Because of your excellent service record, you have been chosen to participate in Operation Templar. This is a joint Terran-Vasudan endeavor intended to eradicate the last remnants of the Vasudan fanatics who call themselves the $h Hammer $h of $h Light.

Stage 2

At 2130 hours, $h Hammer $h of $h Light operatives infiltrated Vasudan ranks in an attempt to hijack the $f GVD $f Anhur, a Typhon-class destroyer in the Vasuda system. Security forces are now battling the rebels for control of the ship. Your mission is to provide cover for the marine transports that will dock with the $f Anhur and insert reinforcements.

Stage 3

Supreme Admiral Khu and other high-ranking officers of the Admiralty were on board the $f Anhur for a demonstration of the Scarab stealth technology prototypes. Should the rebels attempt to seize the prototypes or take the Admiralty hostage, we will need to act decisively.

Debriefing

Stage 1

This is a terrible loss. Your incompetence has resulted in the Hammer of Light escaping with the Anhur, high-level Vasudan hostages, and the stealth technology prototypes. We are sending in another team to track them down. You are dismissed.

Stage 2

You prevented the Hammer of Light from escaping with the captured destroyer. They will be that much weaker when we meet them again. But that provides little comfort to those lost on the Anhur. We must somehow eliminate this scourge once and for all!

Stage 3

Great work, pilot! The remnants of the Hammer of Light forces are on the run. We are currently pursuing them into the Alpha Centauri system.

Stage 4

You did not have orders to return to base. By deserting your unit, you have jeopardized this mission. Consider yourself grounded until you can be court-martialed, pilot.


Chasing the Threat

Mission Filename: Templar-02.fsm

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

We arrived too late in Vasuda to prevent the $h HoL transport and freighters from escaping. We are now pursuing them to Alpha Centauri. The rebels demand the release of all $h HoL leaders in government custody in exchange for the safe return of the hostages. The Vasudans have agreed to negotiate to give us time to attempt a rescue.

Stage 2

Vasudan intelligence believes the $h Hammer $h of $h Light has isolated Supreme Admiral Khu and is holding him on board the $h Isis transport. The other hostages were transferred to two $h Taurus freighters. The third $h Taurus contains the stealth technology prototypes.

Stage 3

Your mission is to scan all three freighters and destroy the vessel containing the prototypes. Once you have completed this objective, stand by for further orders. Under no circumstances should you fire on the ships carrying hostages.

Debriefing

Stage 1

The Taurus freighters are taking the hostages to Aldebaran, while Admiral Khu is being taken to Sirius. Your orders are to follow the freighters. Other assets will try to track Admiral Khu.

Stage 2

You disobeyed a direct order, pilot. Your reckless and criminal behavior has endangered the lives of our allies, jeopardizing future cooperation between Terrans and Vasudans. You are confined to the brig pending a court-martial.

Stage 3

You did not have orders to return to base. By deserting your unit, you have jeopardized this mission. Consider yourself grounded until you can be court-martialed, pilot.


Tightening the Noose

Mission Filename: Templar-03.fsm

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

The $h Hammer $h of $h Light freighters carrying the Vasudan hostages seem to be headed for a rendezvous with the $h Tanis, an $h HoL destroyer. The $h Tanis and the freighters are now in the Aldebaran system. Command anticipates the rebels will try to transfer the hostages to the destroyer.

Stage 2

Your main task is to keep those freighters from docking with the $h Tanis. We need to get the hostages back and we won't be able to if they get them onto that destroyer. If you can prevent that rendezvous, we'll send in marines in troop transports to capture the freighters and rescue the hostages.

Stage 3

Do whatever is necessary to ensure the hostages' safety. We don't know what other forces the $h HoL has in-system, but you must handle them. Once the hostages are out of danger, wipe out the remaining $h HoL vessels.

Stage 4

We have been advised that our forces in the Sirius system are preparing to engage the last known $h Hammer $h of $h Light outpost. A decisive victory in both systems will mean the complete annihilation of the $h Hammer $h of $h Light. This is a historic moment, pilot. Command is confident you are up to the challenge.

Debriefing

Stage 1

Because of your outstanding performance, the hostages were successfully recovered. Operation Templar was a total success. All loyal citizens of the GTVA are celebrating the eradication of the Hammer of Light. Excellent work, pilots!

Stage 2

Against difficult odds, GTVA marines boarded the HoL freighters and recovered the Vasudan hostages. This rescue effort would not have succeeded without your efforts. Well done, pilots.

Stage 3

The GTVA has issued a formal apology for our failure to rescue the hostages. The Vasudans have little choice but to comply with the rebels' demands and release Hammer of Light prisoners in exchange for the officers. Operation Templar was a total failure.

Stage 4

We botched the rescue mission, and the hostages paid with their lives. The Vasudans have terminated Operation Templar and will deal with the Hammer of Light on their own. There's a garbage scow with your name on it. Dismissed.

Stage 5

You did not have orders to return to base. By deserting your unit, you have jeopardized this mission. Consider yourself grounded until you can be court-martialed, pilot.


Final Outpost

Mission Filename: Templar-04.fsm

Mission Briefing

Stage 1

Welcome to Sirius, pilots. Vasudan forces have tracked the $h Isis transport to the remote $h Nagada outpost here. This installation was de-commissioned after the Great War, but the $h Hammer $h of $h Light has brought the facility back on-line. Intelligence suspects they have been operating in this sector for only a short time.

Stage 2

The Vasudans are deploying a hostage rescue team to invade the $h Nagada outpost, neutralize the rebels, and extract Supreme Admiral Khu. Your mission is to provide cover for the rescue team's transports. Success in this endeavor is of the utmost importance.

Stage 3

With our victory in Aldebaran, this is the last remaining stronghold of the $h Hammer $h of $h Light. A decisive victory here will mean the complete annihilation of the $h HoL. We believe you are the team to accomplish this historic task. Good luck, pilots!

Debriefing

Stage 1

We rescued Supreme Admiral Khu and destroyed outpost Nagada, the last refuge of the Hammer of Light. The GTVA has declared Operation Templar a complete success. Excellent work, pilots!

Stage 2

Allied Command has formally apologized to the Vasudan Emperor for our failure to rescue Supreme Admiral Khu. The Vasudans are left with little choice but to comply with the rebels' demands and release Hammer of Light prisoners in exchange for the admiral. Operation Templar has failed.

Stage 3

You did not have orders to return to base. By deserting your unit, you have jeopardized this mission. Consider yourself grounded until you can be court-martialed, pilot.

Stage 4

Though the Hammer of Light's outpost was destroyed, we lost Supreme Admiral Khu. The GTVA has issued a formal apology for this failure. Future cooperative efforts with our Vasudan allies have been jeopardized.

Stage 5

After two attempts, we managed to rescue Supreme Admiral Khu. Unfortunately, outpost Nagada remains operational. We are deploying a strike force to eliminate the hostiles you failed to neutralize.

Stage 6

Operation Templar has been declared a total failure. The Hammer of Light's outpost remains operational, and Supreme Admiral Khu was killed during the rescue attempt. The Vasudans have decided to resolve the situation without Terran involvement. You are grounded pending reassignment.
