Walkthrough

You're going to be doing some close-quarters interception work, for this reason, a recommended loadout is a GTF Perseus with a Prometheus S, Tempests and Tornadoes.

You'll start in front of a jump node, alongside the GTCv Escher, in front of a really mad crowd (all designated neutral).

Listen to the three minutes of dialogue, then the Nyaralathotep will break in. A Fenris crew will panic, so take out its forward beam turret. Then a full-scale riot will happen. Take out any ships marked hostile (if the wing's named after a color, kill them).

Then a bunch of Artemis D.H. bombers will jump in, they'll go after the Sai. Kill them, and break their warheads while you're at it. You're also going to have to deal with some Hercules fighters assaulting the Sai, as for some reason your team mates won't target them.

After all the hell is over, just warp out.
