Both Basestars are pointed roughly in the general direction of the Battlestars in the mission, and all Colonial and Cylon forces are marked as "friendly" and "hostile" respectively. The Battlestars start farther than 7500, but quickly close the gap to much less than that.
I have attached the mission file, i would greatly appreciate it if someone who has more experience with FRED2 than me could find the issue, as i am out of ideas as to what could be causing the problem.
And yes, i am aware that this mission sucks, you don't need to tell me.
