Wing Commander Privateer
Terrell Mission 1
The Admiral has assembled an entire fleet to destroy the Steltek drone (AKA big green egg). He claims that all you need to do is fly to the ambush area and let the fleet blow it up, unfortunately it isn't that simple. Their guns can't hurt the thing, and neither can yours. Yet.
Travel to Blockade Point Tango Nav 3 and meet Commodore Reismann. When the Steltek drone shows up, destroy it.
Number of jumps to destination
2 (Nitir, Blockade Point Tango)
Friendly Steltek scout at jump to Blockade Point Tango
Steltek drone at Blockade Point Tango Nav 3
- When you meet the Steltek scout, have a friendly chat with it. Eventually it will agree to attach a booster to your Steltek weapon which will allow it to damage and destroy the Steltek drone.
- At this point you should select the Steltek gun as your only weapon (any other weapons won't damage the drone and will just suck up your energy reserves), and jump through to the ambush point. When the drone shows up, destroy it.
- When the drone is destroyed, you'll see the Steltek scout towing away the derelict base. Don't bother going to Delta Prime again because you won't be able to land and refuel to get back, but why would you want to go there anyway? You've won! Head back to Perry and collect your pay. You're now ready for the add-on... Righteous Fire! Although first you may want to talk to Terrell again for the Credits chat.

Mission : Steltek Drone
Comments : This mission really isn't TOO hard... Get behind the drone, target it, and keep blasting. Once it's main shields go down, fire all of your missiles/torpedoes and keep up the pounding with your Steltek Gun. The drone will fall quickly.

Mission : 1
Comments : You really need to avoid the drone's blasts, though. One salvo will rip through your shields and take a nice chunk of armour too. One more is likely to finish you off.

Mission : Terrell Mission 1
Comments : A subtle trap with this one - there are so many Confed ships floating all around trying to take a pot shot at the drone, be careful where you fire lest you hit the Confeds too often ;)

Comments : Fire all of your missiles/torpedoes? Nonsense, they don't work.
In fact, a real tip is to TURN OFF all your other guns, ONLY use the steltek gun, don't waste enery on guns that don't work.

Comments : It's the shields that make the drone impervious. Once those are taken down by the boosted Steltek cannon, normal weapons can hurt the drone. At that point, the Confed fleet can even be useful (just don't get hit by them yourself).
