You are a young pilot assigned to the GTD Delacroix. The rebellion has been going on for almost 15 months now, and the fight with the NTF is in a stalemate. Follow the destroyer in it's war path against the NTF and witness it's destruction at the hands (claws?) of the Ravana..
After the ship is lost you join a newly formed Fast Response Task Force (all fast ships, including a strike carrier, so you move from system to system very often). Fighting the NTF and the shivans, your unit will travel across the known space hoping to shift the battles in the GTVA's favor.
Experience the battles you heard about in briefings and rumors and fight for the future of the GTVA!
The Legion Hulk bug is still present, alltough fixed to an extent. It no more spins like crazy (when the Argo docks), killing everything in the vicinity. The Argo dock path is still strange and it will still carry the Legion into subspace with itself. All attempts at fixing his have failed. The bug won't interfere with the mission tough.
EASTER EGG - scan cargo containers in Mission1 and see what tresures you find.
Well from my POV this has got to be one of the best user made campaigns I have ever played. It is full of twists and turns. You can not find a sigle mission where you are bored. The action is there the drama is there the skill to do your best in this campaign is there (well actualy the skill depends more on you the player). This campaign goes up there next to Derelict Homesick and the main FS2 campaign. I for one think anyone who is pasionate about FS should give this one a try. I for one was not disapointed and I can pretty much bet that you wont be either.
I for one can't wait for Chapter 2 of the campaign since..well....it left you out crawing for more. Let us all hope that T Man hase enough free time to do the second one ASAP.
I wont spoil the surprises for you but let me tell you that you have several new mod's available in this campaign or rather that feature in this campaign. You want to know more? Then go on and play the campaign.
