Mystery of the Trinity
||Campaign Walkthrough||Next Mission
ACT 1, MISSION 5
Fighter squadron: 107th Ravens
The first mission in the nebula. Take off, even without authorization (you are not yelled at if you do), and follow Zeta 1. During your journey, you encounter several Shivan fighters. I don't think I have to explain what to do with them. In the nebular environment, you can hardly aim, so do not get nervous easily. Use your rockets to better handle the fighters. With Zeta 1, you discover a derelict Terran cruiser (NTC Trinity, GTC Fenris-class) inside the nebula. Try to protect the cruiser as long as you can.
It's very difficult to save the NTC Trinity from the SF Dragon-class fighters, and the boarding party will probably also be lost. Jump out of the nebula quickly. If the Shivans destroy you in the last stage of the mission several times, you can stay away from the battle without engaging the Shivans and see how they vaporize the Trinity. Active your subspace drive and depart. Command tells you that there was nothing you could have done to save the Trinity, but several people claim to have defended the Trinity against all the 2 wings of Dragons (with 5-6 waves each). No-one has yet claimed to have beat back the Shivans on greater than Medium difficulty. If you manage to defend it you won't be permitted to proceed with the campaign, like in the other "impossible" missions of the campaign.
