Re: Most despised canon mission
That would absolutely undermine the game's narrative and ending, though. The Colossus is supposed to be the incarnation of the GTVA's mistakes. It's the Yamato.

Still, its end was almost ridiculous. The Colossus was disabled, dead in the water, than finally murdered by a Sath with the dialog telling you "we buy time for the Bastion" when the delay was about 30 secs and Command screaming "GET OUTTA HERE!!!" to a disabled ship.

I tweaked that sequence for FS Blue so more dialogue would play but really I think the original holds up pretty well. It goes out about as meaningfully as the Yamato did.

Re: Most despised canon mission
I kinda wish the Colossus did more in that mission. Throwing a couple of cruisers or corvettes at it before the Beast arrived would've been cool.

Oh well, as far as canon missions go I think Their Finest Hour is in the top five missions I enjoyed.

I liked the mission too, from effect value alone it is also one of my favourites. But it seems that during the ending dialog neither the Colossus nor Command was entirely sure/aware whether Colly was disabled or not.

Must. Steal. Trivial Psychics. Subspace Explination.
I used it in a FS fan story I was writing several years ago, but never finished.  Not that it was a critical plot point, merely that the story was a platform to promote my subspace theory when it was appropriate to the story.

Still a good example for explinations :v-old: could/should've made if they bothered to do so. :)

I think the Colossus actually has waypoints set in FRED, and I remember reading that there are some other events that never trigger. Maybe :v: couldn't get the mission balanced right and just disabled it as a rush job fix.

Indeed - For the first time ever I actually jumped out before the Colly gets blown up.

 
Re: Most despised canon mission
Still I'm cursious what :v-old: had intended for Collys end.

Maybe it could do the baseball bat thing and fling the Sathanas into the Cappelean sun.  :D
