The following information has not been confirmed by Volition
and is therefore not canon for the FreeSpace universe.

Fighter squadron: 212th Silver Scythes
Description: Um?


  • Alpha leader, I think we're lost. While you were in your sleep stage, we've come out of subspace into some kind of dense gas field. Our instruments are scrambled, and we don't quite know where we are. Keep a sharp lookout. Seems we've stumbled into some kind of rabbit hole that wasn't on the charts. We won't launch any beacons until we can find out where we are...


This is the dream mission. Another example of the Derelict team's creativity. The Volition Bravos actually make an appearance in this mission as a sensor blip, and you can catch a glimpse of them as they jump out.

There is basically no way of failing this mission. The events will unfold themselves.


The nightmare coincides with some dialogue about Kyle Athanas, a pilot who was traumatized in his fighter by something that may or may not have been a hallucination. If the latter is true, this mission likely has some relation to it. Chilling, to say the least.

The Kyle Athanas plot thread, itself, ties into one of the teaser stories that were posted on the Derelict website prior to its release. See this page, which is accessible from clicking the Ghost Stories section and then clicking Previous Story.
