Fighter squadron: 82nd Nighthawks

Description: Our hero responds to a distress signal at the Delta Serpentis node to Beta Aquilae.



Defend the Hope at all times. Intercept any bombs that rebel bombers unload but assist your wingmen against the incoming rebel transports and freighters whenever you can. Scan the Atens during pauses.

If you stay in the area after authorization to leave, you can participate in another battle and get some more kills.


  • The ST:R team liked the name for this mission so much that they changed the name of the 91st Shadows to the 91st Phantoms so as not to conflict.
  • A shocked Vasudan at one point exclaims: "Somebody has set up us the bomb." This is a direct reference to a 1991 Sega video game, Zero Wing that is notorious for its poorly translated English version.
