Outstanding stuff Colt, not only are the missions tense and a lot of fun, you really did your homework and went the extra mile to make the missions feel "lived in." Trashed bases, damaged fleets, the pacing of the missions themselves. It's pretty much a perfect story set during the Second Shivan war, getting a broader look at outside events and how the GTVA is being slowly, relentlessly, crushed despite their best efforts. That shows with the writing, and the missions themselves.
It makes the survival of the species that much more impressive given FS2's ending.
