Wing Commander Prophecy mission


I'm having trouble with one of the missions in Prophecy. Every time I start this mission, I instantly get the message "Your carrier has been lost"...there is a technical support document on EA Tech Support web site regarding this problem, but everytime I try to access the link, I get a message saying that there's a problem with EAs website! Fate is just stopping me from finishing this game! Can anybody help?
Play the sim mission 6 or 7 for a minute or two, you don't need to win the mission just play it a little.

Uh excuse me Mr.Cat, sir, but would you mind like ceasing fire for a little while so we can barbecue your god-ugly asses? Todd "Maniac" Marshall Wing Commander Pilgrim Stars
