Swimming with Sharks
The Shivans are suspected to be in the Phi Eridani system, and before a task force can be committed to the system, a recon-in-force team will be deployed from Tau Sigma to evaluate the Shivan presence in case any deathtraps lay on the other side...
- Available ships: Hercules, Hercules Mark Two, Myrmidon.
You only have to defend one Sobek-class corvette from waves of Manticores, Maras, Nephilims, and Nahemas. There will also be two Shivan capital ships in the area, take down the Lilith's beams, she'll cause the most harm. Keep defending the Vasudan corvette until the rest of the task force comes in and destroys the capital ships.
After the capital ships are gone, any Shivan light craft will escape, so you can return to base (despite the fact that you're supposed to dock with the Valhalla, you should jump out).
