Freespace 2 Play-through: Mission 27

I played Freespace 2 years ago and remember it fondly as one of the best space sims of all time. I’m replaying it now for the first time and decided to  write a pilot’s journal detailing the events of each mission.

Pilot’s Journal Mission 26

The last time I saw the Iceni I was defending her from asteroids and a rouge Vasudan attack. This time I was looking forward to training my guns on her and taking her out, or at least disabling her.

Pilot’s Journal Mission 25

As recognition that I’m one of the most damn pilots in the fleet and perhaps the only one with enough skill to finish the job of defanging Sathanas, the brass sends me in again to to take out the last remaining 2 beam turrets.

It’s either that or this mission is punishment for not completing the job the first time they sent me up.

Pilot’s Journal Mission 24

In the military, officers are lauded by the brass for innovative tactics (feint here, ambush there, fly left while your wingman goes right) while they’re hated by the guys on the ground who actually have to execute the mishmash of highly precise orders.

Fortunately my orders for this mission were dead simple: Defang the Sathanas. Take out anything else.

In all likelihood the orders were going to leave me simply dead.

In a mission that smells more of desperation than tactical sense, Command now has me defending light skinned transports as they lay some kind of new fangled bomb to destroy the Knossos portal.

What could go wrong?

Pilot’s Journal Mission 22

In a bid to lure the Sathanas out of hiding, Command asked us to take out a Shivan cap ship.

Readers of my past combat logs will note that we used a similar gambit during the NTF rebellion.

The only thing is it worked against the rednecks of the NTF, it didn’t work against the Shivans.

Instead, the Shivans decided to take the fight to us and the Sathanas was spotted heading towards Gamma Draconis. That freaked everyone out so we’re all scrambling now to reposition ourselves to defend the home systems.

Look out the window, tell me what you see.

Oh, it’s an experimental stealth ship poking around the biggest goddamn Shivan ship ever recorded!

The Vasudans aren’t so bad, a bit stiff but alright. Honestly I was anxious about the reception I would get. Sure we’re allies and we both stared down mutually assured destruction at the hands of the Shivans together; but alliances tend to break down when the common enemy disappears.

All of the Vasudans I’ve met though, my new comrades, have treated me with courtesy if a bit of hesitant aloofness.

It’s nice that they’re not leaving dead rats in my bunk. Now time to see if their flying is as rigid as their respect for protocol.

We stalked out the Knossos portal in another bid to capture the elusive Admiral Bosch. I didn’t have much hope for this mission as all our other attempts at capturing the admiral ended in utter failure.

In what is becoming the story of my professional life we missed Bosch again today. Like before it was due to command’s faulty intel.
