On this day in 2654, Rapiers from the TCS Tiger's Claw launched in support of operations to recover a captured Ralari in the Kurasawa system. Christopher Blair and Kien Chen fought their way through wings of Salthi and Gratha in order to escort the valuable destroyer to friendly space.
Failure sent players to the Rostov System where their efforts determined a winning or losing path in either Venice or Hell's Kitchen. You can find walkthrough information on this mission and hundreds like it in CIC Teal.
This mission is considered by some to be the most difficult mission of any WC game. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, however it certainly isn't simple. The Salthi in the asteroid field are simple enough, but don't take any damage and don't use any missiles. Nav 1 is the real challenge. There is no perfect strategy to this, it is mainly down to luck. As soon as you arrive, order Bossman to Break & Attack, and let loose with all of your missiles as quickly as you can. If your missiles hit home, and Bossman does his job well, you might just have a chance at taking out all of the fighters before they destroy the Ralari. But don't bet on it. Expect to have to try this mission several times before getting it right. Good luck.
