Command is a super-duper A.I. program that uses the persona of an African-American that relays mission objectives in a squadron level. ;7

*tries to goad the thread back to its original course by flailing wildly with those glowy sticks traffic wardens use*

The first time you get hit with ECM. It is annoying as heck, blasting away the aspect lock on that manticore and losing a whole Interceptor. Quite disorientating too.

Gotta love the nebulas.

And, of course, the first time you get blown up by a gas miner.
>>; I managed to get minuses on kills...that be bad, right?

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
I forgot the missions and even the campaigns these were in, but:

When I was so close to the end of a fifteen minute mission, and somehow manage to fly into a bomb.
When I was shooting a a bomb and got squered by AAAf form the ship I was protecting.
When I was tailing a bomber and a slash beam vaped the bomber but somehow missed me. (that'll get the heart pumpin'!)

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
I got killed by the GTCv Warspite's Ultra AAA's cause I was tagging Taurvis for it :(
There was also the time the Beleth smoked me with its LRed after I successfully took out all of the Sathanas's beams.

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
The Beleth was probably aiming at the Thebes, and then it saw you and went, "Ooh, headz!" :drevil:

On the other hand, when I was in my Ursa, I kind of got attracted by the beam salvo exchanged between the Hyksos and Alba...so I afterburned towards it. :D

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
One of my favourite moments was when I was launching a Harbinger bomb at a Typhon and a damaged wingmate zoomed in front it and got hit.

"Blink. Blink. I don't think that was included in the Mission Training."

I'm still wondering how they got splashed by my Infyrno missiles...

 :lol:

The best way racking up kills in the 50's per mission is by forcing your weapons to BFReds and just beaming here and everywhere. Gets you most of the enemy kills on your counter and is great for getting points for killing enemy cap ships!  :D

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
Once I was playing though the Port, and every time that the Lucifer makes its strike on the Galatea, I always make a point to rush the Lucifer and try (in vain) to take out its beam turrets.  So I flew towards the Lucifer, making sure to keep out of its firing solution on the Galatea, and launched a bomb at the turret.  Unfortunately, the Lucifer was at that moment preparing to fire on the Galatea, but chose instead to target the bomb I'd just fired, and guess what happennd to be within an LRed's diameter distance from the bomb.  I felt both pissed and honored that the Lucifer had taken the time out of waxing the Galatea to shoot one of those big weapons at me instead.

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
I remember a bug in retail FS1 that seemingly stopped the Lucifer from killing the Galatea if you and your wingmen attacked it as soon as it jumped in.  I had to restart that mission one or two times because it wound up with the Lucifer flying lazily toward the Galatea, never firing once. :p

More recently, I died several frustrating times in a row on the Derelict mission "Rites of Passage" when an incoming enemy Deimos decided to specifically target me with its main beams.  I still have no idea what was going on there.

I think there was only the Ithaca in that mission, Mongoose. Just cleared it.
