  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
The FSPort team is proud to bring you today this voice acted mini campaign originally created in 1998, overhauled for 2007!


As Terran forces continue to fall back in the face of Shivan might, accompany the veteran pilot, Lieutenant Rhygar, on a front line patrol.  What you discover there could turn the tide of the war, or seal your doom.







Original Features:
* Two unique missions, plus one "atmosphere" mission (no combat)
* Unique player roles: wingman, and reinforcement wing leader
* Multiple tasks: escort, attack, recon
* Involving storyline
* Real characters
* Asteroid field combat
* Extensive playtesting and balancing

Added by Admiral Nelson:
* Converted for FS2
* Lightspeed nebulae
* Nameplates

Original Creator: Julian Egelstaff

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

A campaign with voice acting is 3.4 MB? Are you pulling our legs? :P

It's always great to see you guys churning out releases for FSPort. Now finish the voice acting on ST:R! *cracks whip*
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

I don't get the ending... What happened? :blah:

All I get is that the Shivans are on their way to Sol... But was there any consequence to the stuff that happened at Tango?

  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
Revised package posted in the first post.  It seem VPMage cut off the end of the file -- that is extremely strange.

As for the ending:

Spoiler:
The idea is that the final mission is the one which alerted Terran Command that the Lucifer was en route to Sol -- thus setting up the series of missions in the main FS1 campaign about its pursuit and destruction.

So is there any contact with the original author of the campaign?

Someone from ten years ago? :) Nope.

Tolwyn’s reputation for risk taking with other people’s lives was considered  to understate the facts. The admiral’s willingness to sacrifice anyone or anything to achieve his objectives had long been lauded in the popular press. He was “the man who got things done”.- Colonel Blair

I start the campaign, and I cannot select a different ship or weapons. I start with absolutely no weaponry. How am I supposed to cover my winglead?

edit:

I used the age old mantra of "RAM IT UNTIL IT DIES" and I got through all of the fighting. Being able to recruit nav buoys sure helps....  And I set it at x64 and waited for five minutes and all beta 1 did was run around in circles for that entire time. Mission has no ending....
