Traitors detected in bp2-06 Darkest Hour
After retrying several times this mission, I finally found out why I had so much trouble maintaining Rheza Station alive. It appears that when the first Deimos corvette warps out, all the already launched Jackhammer missiles from Omega wing will try to follow the corvette into subspace, but as she disappears their trajectory leads to the Station instead. As they are friendly missiles, they can't seem to be intercepted, and this friendly fire costs about 20-30 hull integrity to the station.

Do you have any idea how to avoid this 'treason' from Omega wing?

You could instruct them to 'ignore my target' on the corvette, then they wont fire on it. Actually, this is probably a good idea in general since you don't need to destroy the corvette, so Omega should save its bombs for other targets, such as the three AWACSs that turn up later.

I feel like a simple fix would be to make the corvette waypoints turn away from the station before jumping (as you'd expect it to, really). I'll have a look at that mission when I get there in bugfixing.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

To be fair, that's absolutely the kind of "woopsi" I could see happen in real life :P
