Hm... The first time I played through the game, the "DIVE DIVE DIVE!"-thing just... well, I just plain dove and hit my burners. Didn't know what was supposed to hit me until the next playthrough. Of course, THAT time I was just staring at the Satahanas going "Shiiiii-"SPLAT. I think I tried a climb once, too. Don't do that. GOOOOD moment.
It was rather a while since I played FS1/2 [asbestos-suit put on], so I don't remember much. I COMPLETELY LOVED the feeling in FS1 before you had shield-piercing weaponry. See, I knew it was bound to turn around at some point...? Um. Anyway, I now remember the mission with McCarthy handing the Avenger-plans to the Vasudans special for some reason.
I'll try to create a mission some day with a really special moment in it. (Still haven't completed Blue Planet.)
