What a bizzare error. Do the nukes end up launching? Does the carrier also launch a wing of nuke bombers as backup, and do their nukes work?
Nukes are launched (once) but disappear without doing any damage, a couple times they were just headed into empty space and they went away. The bombers (Pi Wing?) are launched but end up just sticking around behind the carrier doing nothing, I can't command them from the coms menu either.
Ended up skipping it for now, got to the last mission, mission 10, and died due to the unknown ship warping out on me (bit slow on the scan) decided to start from the checkpoint and it just throws me into the end briefing with no text and the campaign is over. Guess I'll have to play it from the simulator :')
Edit: Checkpoint in mission 10 works once I got to the rendezvous point.
