    3)Story
    =======    
    Note:- there are many spoilers in this story, so think well before you read it
         - information, relating the events can be found in Misc section
         - keep in mind, that this game is set in future, so I have written this 
    story, as the humanity would be living in that >> future <<
    
    
    
     It is the 26th century and peace is prevailing in the Sol system after a long 
    and bloody war, named the >> Sol war of freedom <<. However, that may not be 
    true for The Fringe - an outer space of the Sol region. Inhabited by pirates, 
    criminals, fanatical colonist, megalomaniac corporations, seeking only the 
    profit and other powerful individuals, this space is more than dangerous and 
    offers more than a typical getaway.
     However, the humanity would still be in the Solar system, if there wouldn`t be 
    2 very important things: in 2257 - Reed`s special theory of relativity: the 
    Tachyon coil and singularities and the existence of the ripstars: a special 
    classification of a singularity, found naturally in space, that is a vital part 
    of the TCG and enables faster-than-light travel. 
     You are Jake Logan, a contractor of AGT that has a nice job and a good 
    payment. Until something goes wrong on one mission and you get framed for the 
    crime, you did not commit and you are exiled from the Sol region.
     Apparently, GalSpan has begun to take interest in The Fringe as a valuable 
    source of income. But this also includes to invade the Bora region, a home to 
    the colonist, that have jumped trough one-way jumpgate to unknown space (now 
    Bora region) and escaped the tyranny of the Sol government.
     The question remains: will you join the GalSpan, help them defeat the Bora and 
    get back to your home as a reward or will you join the Bora, help them stop the 
    GalSpan aggression and find a new home, where everyone respects you and where 
    the freedom is on the first place?
    
    
    
    
    
    ========================
    4)The Fringe and regions
    ========================
    Note:- minor to major spoilers
    
     The Fringe. . .two words, that can give you thinking for the whole day, but 
    you still wouldn`t come to conclusion, what it really is. Yet as much it is 
    complicated, it is very understandable. 
     Just an part of known and habited space, you may think at first. But it`s 
    more, much more: it`s alive. Just every day, hour, second, something is 
    happening. While at Sol region, Star Patrol and USG are maintaining peace and 
    tourists are going on trips every day, to view solar flare and planets, there 
    are gladiatorial battles at Fenris Arena in Frontier region, where everyone is 
    fighting for their own lives, to win some money for living
    . Where pirates are raiding freighters in Frontier region, an illegal 
    experiments are undergo in Twilight region and various research for better 
    future are in progress in ripstar region. When everyone is somewhat optimistic 
    about the moto >> No more wars, only peace <<, a new war is arising between 
    Bora and GalSpan, one that would be the bloodiest yet. The Fringe has many 
    bright points, but has the dark ones as well.
     The Fringe is composed by several regions, all of them being connected with 
    few MTCGS, that have many sectors, who are connected with normal TCGs: Sol, 
    Hub, Frontier, Galspan, Bora, Twilight and ripstar regions. Each of them is 
    very unique in it`s own way and is a story for itself.
    -----
     Sol region has history of beginnings of humanity`s dreams of reaching the 
    stars. Sol system is the >> mother << of everything, especially native planet 
    Earth. Actually, everything traces back to Earth; everyone has his roots on 
    Earth. Successes, like Mars terra-reformation beginning in 2160, advent of 
    mega-construction technology in 2214, when massive space stations became 
    reality, evolution of relatively theory in 2257 are few successes, that 
    humanity achieved right in this region.
     The democratic ruling body of this region is Unite Sol Government (USG), which 
    is a direct result from Sol War of Freedom, a terrible civil war in 23dh 
    century. The police force, responsible for maintaining peace is called Star 
    Patrol.
     The Sol region is also the home of many corporations, such as Biolith, CMI, 
    AGT, Gate Industries etc.
    -----
     The Hub region is actually industrial region, where business is everything. 
    Many corporations have production stations. Some sectors look like a 
    >> Rust Belt <<, because of large junkyards and unattractive station`s look.
     Star Patrol is responsible to prevent conflicts, illegal business and guarding 
    important persons as well as helping in natural disaster or equipment 
    malfunction.
     This region is also the starting point for independent star pilots, who are 
    seeking for jobs.
    -----
    The Frontier region could be called Wild West. This is a region, where everyone 
    is it`s own master, where illegal things are legal, where life is nothing, 
    where money is life. 
     The safer locations are casinos at New Vegas sector, like Atlantic Casino, 
    where the most rich gamblers are, the Fenris Arena, where visitors can watch 
    gladiatorial combats, in which stronger lives and weaker dies and perhaps baron 
    Malkar`s art gallery, who has many famous, interesting and unique art pieces, 
    including Sistine Chapel. 
     Other sectors are owned by pirates, other asteroid barons and two opposing 
    military camps, Bora and GalSpan. Unless you understand the politics, you are 
    friend with one of them or you are considered powerful, you better stay off 
    that sectors
    -----
    The Galspan region is the nexus of GalSpan military and economy power. Having a 
    number of military bases, research and other stations as well as production 
    facilities are one of the factors, how this company has arisen from industrial 
    company to megacorporation, of which the power should be feared. 
    -----
    The Bora region is the home, the previously unknown space, where the Bora 
    colonists jumped in 2378 from the tyranny of Sol government. Although the 
    stations, that are build there are not famous for their safety, they serve as 
    example, what can be done with hard work and feeling of freedom with minimal 
    resources and old technology. 
     The region is very rich in asteroids, that contain iron and other. Mining is 
    also a primary activity in this region, as many cities have been established on 
    big asteroids.
    -----
    The Twilight region has always been one big mystery, that has yet to be more 
    explored. But 5 things are clear.
     First, League Of Scientist have a base there and are the ones, who were the 
    first to explore this region; second, a mad scientist, actually a genius, is 
    living there who built a completely automated research station and shipyards 
    and has an army of drones and third, it is a home to ferocious pirates, called 
    The Demons, who only preserve their mankind.
     The 4th thing is the fog: beautiful in it`s way but also an evil thing, that 
    causes life support malfunctions, radar jamming and is filled with deadly 
    radiation. 
     The last thing is, that it has some of the most beautiful nebulas and natural 
    objects, such as Opaline crystal in Far Space sector.
    -----
     The Ripstar region is the last region, that is the home of objects, of which 
    we would all be still stucked in Solar system without them: the ripstars. 
     Ripstars are a special classification of a singularity, found naturally in 
    space. They look like bright, red-purple-orange colored, star-like objects with 
    few meters in diameter. But as some says >> Poison is in the small bottles <<, 
    this is very true for a ripstars: they have so immense gravitational field, 
    that can rip any ships apart, that find itself close to it. A field of these is 
    a natural minefield. However, they are very important to humanity and are 
    required for all faster-than-light traveling and communication. The immense 
    radiation in some areas near ripstar fields have created special bright, white 
    crystals, designated KC2, who are used for protection against Ripstar effects.
     The region is also called as disputed region, as major ammounts of fightings 
    happend here between Bora and GalSpan.
     Also, a group of independent mercenaries, called Cinder Mercs have their base 
    there.

    5)Factions
    ========== 
    Note:- (MC) = indicates, that this faction is actually a megacorporation
    - (P) = indicates, that this faction is a pirate gang
    - there may be small spoilers in this section
         - information, relating the other factions, can be found in Misc section
    
    Bora mining guild (A.K.A. Bora): After the >> Sol war of freedom <<, the 
    government wanted to unite all nations, that were involved in this war. But not 
    everyone agreed with this homogenized government. Those, who were outspoken, 
    joined together and in 2378, they jumped to the unknown space, later to be 
    known as The Fringe. Thus was formed the Bora.
     They are the pioneers in mining technology, because mining was their way of 
    life. It is also amazing, how did they succeeded to establish their bases, 
    without having the much needed Sol technology. They had to piecemeal their 
    equipment out of what they could find. Despite those problems and many 
    inhabitable planets, many cities have arisen on the big asteroids. 
     Those people always keep one word in their mind: freedom. They wanted to 
    escape the tyranny of the Sol region and the capitalistic government. And they 
    succeeded. There is currently a hostile climate with the GalSpan.
     
    (MC) Galactic Spanning Corporation (A.K.A. GalSpan): Originally found in 2368 
    as an industrial prospecting company, it has quickly grown to a megacorporation 
    with great military power.
     This corporation has its own region, named the GalSpan region, which is their 
    base of operations. They have a highly skilled research and development staff 
    with some most advanced technology currently available.
     The entire corporation was developed under the credo: >> Profit equals the 
    worth. <<, meaning that if you are good, you will get high pay but still, there 
    will be always a strong military discipline. Currently, they are seeking for 
    new places for an income and because of that, they have came into several 
    conflicts with others, including the Bora.
     Subsidiaries includes GalSpan Propulsion systems, GS Enwiromax and GS 
    Executive Wear.
    
    Star Patrol: This police force was formed in 2333, as a result, when a small 
    problems began erupting again after some time, when the treaty was signed and 
    when a Seven Planets Accord was formed. They have the best ships, highly 
    trained officers and have the authority to enforce the peace in any way 
    possible. The Star Patrol is the second, enforcement branch of the USG.
    
    (MC) Advanced Ganymede Technologies (A.K.A. AGT): Distinction and quality is 
    their moto. It has the longest running underdog of adv. starship desing and has 
    expert contract pilots. 
     Subsidiaries includes Galileo Imports and Airtight Ind.
    
    (MC) Biolith chemical products (A.K.A. Biolith): A company, that has a goal to 
    protect the galaxy and produce safety equipment from laboratory-produced 
    viruses, other forms of biological warfare or natural space dangers (i.e. 
    radiation). It is responsible for over 40% chemical products.
    
    (MC) Core Mining Industries (A.K.A. CMI): Is specialized in producing low-end 
    resource mining equipment. It is also known as a rival for many larger 
    corporations, including AGT.
    
    (MC) Gate Industries (A.K.A. GI): Is a privatized firm of USG and is charged 
    for everything, that relates the TCG.
    
    (MC) Navigational Technologies (A.K.A. NaviTec): Their production involves 
    shipboard navigation and sensor systems. Their name can be found on almost 
    every ship.
    
    (MC) Oberon Incorporated: One of the largest corporations. Subsidiaries 
    includes Lorian Industrial Technologies, Jovian Planets Robotics Inc. and Prime 
    Reality Distributor Mark.
    
    (MC) Phobos Proprietary Systems (A.K.A. PPS): Is an offshoot of Oberon Inc.
    They product superior scanning equipment, engine components and adv. weaponry 
    designs.
    
    (MC) Turbon Enterprises (A.K.A. TE): This corp. deals exclusively with the 
    design and production of ni-military luxury vehicles and vessels.
    
    Asteroid barons: Found only in Frontier region, those individuals should not 
    been underestimated. For many times, they will be answer to many things. Be 
    nice and polite with them and you will live. Do the vice versa and you are 
    dead.
    
    (P) The Blood Clan: Is the most brutal of all clans and they have no self-
    preservation. They enjoy in raiding the unsuspecting freighters. 
    
    (P) The Skavs: The are not so maniacs like the ones from the Blood Clan, but 
    they will not hesitate to shoot everyone, that enters their space or to take 
    away precious contrabands. They hate GalSpan even more than the Bora and are 
    ally with the Bora.
    
    (P) The Void Runners: These man and women are pretty much hanging in their 
    space. They carefully choose their targets and are interested only in profit. 
    They have received a high payment from GalSpan and are allies with them.
    
    Cinder Mercenaries: This is simply a group of neutral independent mercenaries, 
    that have escaped the Sol region. Many factions have hired them, especially 
    GalSpan, from whom the mercenaries received a high payment to take shots at any 
    Bora ship.
    
    (P) Demon Pirates: One of the most dangerous outlaws in the galaxy. Found only 
    in the Twilight region, they are the victims of Cassitor`s twisted experiments.
    Only the most courageous pilots should deal with them.
    
    League of Scientists: Just a simple group of civil scientist, that are 
    currently exploring the Twilight region and analyzing it`s fog.
    
    
    
    
    
    ============
    6)Characters
    ============
    
    Jake Logan: This is the main character, that you will play thorough
    the game. A contractor of AGT and a very talented pilot, possibly the 
    best one in the galaxy has made a daring rescue of the Tally-Ho shuttle. 
    He has has a reputation of a quick thinking pilot, that can stay cool in the 
    thick of the things.
    
    Susan Bradley: She is the leader of the Bora people. Words like good pilot, 
    fierce warrior and brilliant tactician describes her the best.
    
    Anna Highfall: She is the Bora Fringe operations job coordinator and will brief 
    you on any situation, where the Bora is employer. She is quite emotional and a 
    true friend.
    
    regional director Gustav Atkins: All Fringe mining and military operations are 
    headed by this man. He has successfully lobbied for mining rights in several 
    Fringe regions.
    
    Tricia Bales: She is the GalSpan Fringe operations job coordinator and will 
    brief you on any situation, where the GalSpan is employer. The classification 
    for her feelings is >> the robot <<. She is only happy, if you have completed 
    you job at 100% rate and ensures, that you get paid. Discipline and behavior 
    really pays off, as with the most GalSpan employees.
    
    baron Anton Malkar: He is a newer one in The Fringe. He is the most polite and 
    graceful of the asteroid barons. He is also a serious art collector and has his 
    own art gallery.
    
    baroness Mirham Onrald: She is rather a mystery. Since her family name wasn`t 
    on the good voice, she successfully lobbied for her own barony in the Frontier 
    region. Although her barony has suffered over the decades, she still stays 
    competitive with the other barons. It is rumored, that she has been forming a 
    strange alliances with various pirates and smugglers.
    
    baron Hayod: He is renowned for his cruelty and temper. He fears no one and 
    laughs at USG laws. He commands the largest barony in Frontier region with 
    large number of slaves and two sectors, filled with thousands upon thousand 
    iron rich asteroids. You should try to be polite as much as you can, but if he 
    still persists to destroy you, then defend yourself by any means necessary. 
    React quickly.
    
    Rory Denkins (A.K.A. Redship Rory): He was the first mate on a Sol exploration 
    ship, that has murdered its captain and escaped with the ship. He is twisted, 
    cruel and evil person, that will stop at nothing. Everything is for him 
    enjoyment and fun, including killing.
    
    dr. Randal Cassitor: An exceptional good scientist and a madman. He 
    utilizes, has produced and developed many state of the art equipment and 
    technology, that is far more adv. than Sol technology. He is twisted and very 
    frustrated person, that will destroy any uninvited ship in his sectors with his 
    army of drones. Beware of him and if doing a job with him, don`t stick your 
    nose elsewhere but only there, where he tells you.

    Bora ships: The Bora ships may not have good shields or may not be so agile as 
    GalSpan ships, but they have strong, robust hull, meaning that those ships are 
    truly for die-hard warriors, who like destroying everything around them. Bora 
    ships can also carry a lot of weaponry and ammo and have good energy 
    generators, which makes them even more dangerous.

    The biggest warship of the Bora fleet. This mothership can house many fighters 
    and bombers within its hull. However, it has been sometimes lost when fighting 
    GalSpan ships in superior numbers and weaponry. But still, it represents a 
    great danger to everyone.
    
    
    
    GalSpan ships: GalSpan ships have sleek design, excellent shield technology and 
    are very agile. These ships are not for Rambo-style pilots but rather for smart 
    pilots, that can keep a good balance of AE, WE and especially SE and can use 
    the speed and maneuverability to maximum potentials. If that is achieved, then 
    they become deadly.

    ships may be needed.
    
    
    
    Ships of the Cinder Mercenaries, 
    corporations and independent star pilots:
    
    DART
    Ship role: Light Fighter
    
    This fighter is only useful as an escort or as a rear attack force. It is not 
    very fast and is weak in terms of shields and hull. It has however, a more 
    sleek design and can be little hard to hit it with weapons like sappers.
    But for a skilled pilot, it is a target practice.
    SWA:- Boron ML
        - Heavy Mining Laser
    
    PIRANHA
    Ship role: Medium Fighter
    
    Being a more serious threat than the Dart, it was often seen as main attack 
    force of any faction, that is using it. Whenever a squadron is assaulting a 
    Capital ship or going into large dogfighting, it can put a serious damage. But 
    when it comes to escape or evade something, they simply fail: they don`t have 
    great speed nor have good turn radius - but this is a trade for good weapon 
    armaments.
    SWA:- Flare ML
        - Boron ML
        - Swarm Missiles
    
    GAR
    Ship Role: Multirole Fighter
    
    This is a much tougher fighter over the previous two, that can be compared with 
    Orion or Battleaxe. It has great speed, a formidable shields and hull and good 
    weapon armaments. It is sometimes seen attacking the capital ships.
    SWA:- Heavy Mining laser
        - Spire rockets
        - Distruptor torpedo
    
    MAKO (x) - Note: nothing expect the speed is listed in the stats, so this is my 
    best estimation, when I compared with other stats of the ships
    Ship role: Economy-class Light Fighter
    Top speed:  550 SLU ~ good(6)
    Performance rating: average(5) 
    Acceleration rating: average(5)
    Energy rating: good(6)
    Shield rating: below average(4)
    Hull rating: poor(3)
    Medium Mounts: 3
    Heavy Mounts: /
    Rack Mounts: /
    Special Mounts: /
    CPU Slots: 4
    
    Originally from Oberon Inc., this fighter was bought out by CMI and started a 
    mass production of these ones. It has minimum specifications to fly in the 
    space and all pilots (expect the >> green << ones should avoid it because of 
    its lack in weaponry and relative weak hull and shields. It has however 
    impressing energy capabilities and is quite fast.
    RC: 17500 Cr. (my opinion, because it is actually unknown; it is automatically 
    gained after your exile from Sol region)
    SP: 8750 Cr. (automatically sold, after you join either Bora or GalSpan)
    SWA:- Flare ML
    -------------------------
    Capital ship:
    Note:- DlT = Deimos laser Turret(s)
         - PP = Power Plant(s)
         - WP = Weapons Powerplant(s)
         - SG = Shields Generator(s)
    
    
    SPY DRONE FRIGATE:- DlT: 2
                      - PP: 2
                      - WP: 1
                      - SG: 1
    
    A very fast and weak frigate. It is used as armed mobile control center for spy 
    probes, but can be used as a minelayer.
    
    
    
    Skav pirates ships:
    
    MANTA
    Ship role: Medium Fighter
    
    Skav Mantas often presents a very dangerous foe to everyone with their good 
    shields, hull and weaponry but are not very maneuverable and are somewhat slow.
    SWA:- Boron ML
        - Spire rockets
    
    
    
    Void Runners ships:
    
    MARAUNDER
    Ship role: Medium Fighter
    
    Void Maraunders often presents a very dangerous foe to everyone with their good 
    shields, hull and weaponry but are not very maneuverable and are somewhat slow.
    SWA:- Boron ML
        - Spire rockets
    
    
    
    Demon pirates ships:
    
    DEMON
    Ship role: Ultra-Heavy Fighter
    
    An extremely dangerous ship. Superior weaponry, hull, shields and speed but 
    lack for the special weapon. They are shielded from the Twilight fog radiation 
    but have a little akward turn radius and have a robust design. They are even 
    dangerous for the Capital ships.
    SWA:- Pulsar laser
        - Heavy Mining laser
        - Plasma rockets
    
    
    
    Cassitor`s drones:
    
    ASSAULT DRONE
    Drone role: Adv. Defense Drone
    
    A cannon fodder of the Cassitor`s drone army. They have somewhat strong hull 
    and shields for the drone and are shielded from the radiation. Can posses a 
    great threat when in numbers but are slow and have bad turn radius.
    SWA:- Deimos HL
    
    ADVANCE DRONE
    Drone role: Adv. Mainteance and Repair Worker Drone
    
    These drones have much more superior technology over the Sol one and are also 
    armed. They are very small and may be hard to hit but have no A. A good tactic 
    is to ram with them if faced with less than 5 of them - they will be quickly 
    destroyed because they don`t have good shields and hull and you will take only 
    small ammount of damage.
    SWA:- Arc LL
    
    
    
    Star Patrol ships:
    
    ENFORCER
    Ship Role: Heavy Interceptor
    
    A police ship with great speed, maneuverability, weapons and shields. When 
    those ships will help you, you have nothing to fear about. However, if they are 
    your enemies, you better run away. But a skilled pilots will notice, that when 
    the shields are down, it can be blown up pretty quick.
    SWA:- Pulsar Laser
        - Swarm Missiles
    
    CRUISER:- DlT: 19
            - PdlT: 9
            - AAClT: 4
            - PP: 4
            - WP: 1
            - SG: 1
    
    
    Star Patrol cruiser was rarely seen in action, but it was quite enough to say, 
    that it is one of the best armored and armed capital ships in The Fringe. It`s 
    firepower will make pirates and others thinking twice, before trying to attack 
    it. It is an angel, that will guard against the die-hard fanatical pirates and 
    enforce peace with maximum firepower.
    
    
    
    Ships of the Hayod barony:
    
    MIDGE PROTECTOR
    Ship Role: Light Fighter
    
    Good in large numbers and can be a formidable foe for novice pilots, fling the 
    medium or light fighters. But for anyone else, they are target practice.
    SWA:- Glint LL
        - Flare ML
    
    BARACCUDA PROTECTOR
    Ship Role: Heavy Fighter
    
    Somewhat similar to Demons in terms of speed and hull, but have weaker shields 
    and are easier to hit due to their robust design. When you start shooting them 
    in their six, the will be defeated very fast.
    SWA:- Pulsar laser
        - Swarm missiles
    
    
    
    Ships of the Malkar barony:
    
    TREGG PROTECTOR
    Ship role: Heavy Fighter
    
    It has one of the strongest shields and hull of any fighter in The Fringe but 
    is very large and don`t has good energy rating. Has formidable weaponry and is 
    pretty fast.
    SWA:- Pulsar l.
        - Swarm missiles
        - Spire rockets
    
    
    
    Ships of the Onrald barony:
    
    FLARE PROTECTOR
    Ship role: Heavy Fighter
    
    Also a large fighter with superior weaponary but very bad turn radius and 
    speed.
    SWA:- Heavy Mining l.
        - Spire rockets
        - Railgun
    
    
    
    Blood Clan ships:
    
    SHRIKE
    Ship role: Light Bomber
    
    A little stronger hull and shields than a Skav Manta or Void Maraunder, bad 
    speed and turn radius and heavy weaponry.
    SWA:- Heavy Mining Laser
        - Flare ML
        - Distruptor Torpedo
    
    NIGHTHAWK
    Ship Role: Multirole Fighter
    
    A though ships, that is dangerous for both the smaller warships and Capital 
    ships. It can be compared to Battleaxe, but has more sleek design. React 
    quickly and make your action in one deadly turn to destroy it fast.
    SWA:- Heavy Mining l.
        - Chatter cannon
        - Helios rockets
    
    
    
    Non-armed and civilian vessels:
    
    SHUTTLE
    
    Is used transport small amount of people and cargo. There are several versions 
    of these: GS, Bora, Hayod`s Barony, Star Patrol, civil large and civil small. 
    It has shields, has no afterburner and is non-armed.
    
    LIGHT FREIGHTER
    
    A transport with quite strong shields. Designed to transport standard cargo. 
    Can be present in every faction.
    
    HEAVY FREIGHTER
    
    Has very strong shields and is design, to transport large cargo.
    Can be present in every faction.
    
    LUXURY LINER
    
    It carries tourists. Favorite target for pirates, as much of them were raided 
    in the past (if you are tourist guider, say this to the tourists and they will 
    all faint - lol).
    
    SCIENCE VESSEL
    
    It is actually a big mobile lab with engines and shields. GalSpan has a high 
    number of those vessels.
    
    MEDICAL FRIGATE
    
    A simple frigate, that can house about hundred of sick or injured people on-
    board.
    
    
    
    Other space objects:
    
    SPY PROBE
    
    It serves to spy and gather data; it is controlled and is usually located near 
    the Spy Drone frigate. Immobile, easily destroyed and has no shields.
    
    SATTELITE
    
    The satellite gathers, processes and distributes data to local stations. 
    Sometimes, it is also used as a jamming device. It posses weak shields, has a 
    little stronger hull than spy probe and is mobile.
    
    MINE
    
    Mine is an immobile object with no shields left in space, designed purely for 
    defense. When an enemy ship will get near it, it will explode like Blast 
    Torpedo. Some of them are also armed either with Glint LL or Pulsar Laser.
    
    ATACK DRONE
    Drone role: Modern Defense Drone
    
    Small drone, that is very hard to hit. It has weak shields, has A. and is 
    armed.
    SWA:- Glint LL
    
    DEFENSE DRONE
    Drone role: Standard Defense Drone
    
    Has stronger hull than Atack drone, carries A. and has no shields. The turn 
    radius and speed are also very bad, so this drone will not be too much hard to 
    dispatch. It only has forward scanning cone.
    SWA:- Glint LL
    
    MULTI-PURPOSE DRONE
    Drone role: Standard Mainteance and Repair Worker Drone
    
    It`s role says it all.
    
    
    
    
    
    =============================
    9)Weapons and system upgrades
    ============================= 
    Note:- RC = regular cost
         - SP = sell profit (how much money do you get, when you sell it)
         - if there are more than one items to buy or sell (i.e. Spire Rocket 
    (40x)), then I have written also that; otherwise, there is always only one item 
    to sell or to buy
         - missiles and rockets can also be destroyed, but that requires 
    exceptional skills
         - !WARNING!: the ammo regular cost of missiles, sappers, rockets and 
    cannon, when extended by Ammo Hold is only my opinion; for instance, you can 
    only buy Tiger Missiles in a 12x pack - so the Ammo Hold can increase the ammo 
    by 3x missiles, but you can`t buy a pack of 3x of these missiles and there for, 
    you will have to buy another 12x pack: I have calculated and increased the RC 
    value, based on the increased SP, when you got Ammo Hold (i.e. SP for 12x=600 
    Cr., SP for 15x=750 Cr.; 250 Cr. of increase) - that is why I`m not sure about 
    the cost
    
    
    
    Bora weapons:
    Note:- Ammo Hold upgrade has no effect in increasing the ammo of Helios Rocket 
    and Remote Sapper  
    
    Arc Light Laser: This laser is a conversion from an CMI asteroid cutting laser. 
    It has high RoF and is effective on shields. However, it`s power is not 
    sufficient to destroy a hull and there for, it is recommended, that you have a 
    weapon, that can destroy hull easily (i.e. rockets). It is energy efficient.
    RC: 800 Cr.
    SP: 480 Cr.
    
    Boron Medium Laser: Responding the critical need of having a better weapon, the 
    Bora engineers developed this energy weapon. In fact, it was so good, that many 
    factions prefer using it today. It has a balanced power against the shields and 
    hull, so it can be used on its own. It is even more effective against the hull 
    than the Flare ML.
    RC: 1750 Cr.
    SP: 1050 Cr.
    
    Heavy Mining Laser: Is another EW, that was converted from the CMI asteroid 
    cutting laser. However, this one is much more powerful against shields than the 
    Boron ML, but not so much against the hull. Use it on shields and switch then 
    to Boron ML to finish off the target.
    RC: 2650 Cr.
    SP: 1590 Cr.
    
    Pulsar Laser: Is a significant upgrade over the Heavy mining laser and it fires 
    an intense burst of x-rays instead of light. It has extremely high RoF, is good 
    against the shields and devastating against the hull. Its only drawback is, 
    that it drains your WE really quickly and there for, diverting power to weapons 
    may be necessary.
    RC: 8650 Cr.
    SP: 5190 Cr.
    
    Spire Rocket (40x): Bora engineers have converted CMI`s mining rocket for 
    military use. It has moderate effect on shield and major to the hull. Good, if 
    used with a weapon, like heavy Mining Laser, who has high effect on shields. It 
    is unguided.
    RC: 600 Cr. (for 40x); 690 Cr. (for 50x)
    SP: 360 Cr. (for 40x); 450 Cr. (for 50x)
    
    Plasma Rocket (20x): The warhead of this rocket consists of plasma, contained 
    within a ripstar-generated gravity field. It has major effect on shields and 
    moderate on hull. Best parried with Boron ML or Pulsar Laser.
    RC: 1400 Cr. (for 20x); 1540 Cr (for 25x)
    SP: 700 Cr. (for 20x); 840 Cr. (for 25x)
    
    Helios Rocket (2x): This type of rocket was developed by PPS for use on bombers 
    against the capital ship. It`s nuclear warhead is powerful, but it costs a lot, 
    it is slow and unguided and can be shoot down easily: there for, bombers have 
    to get to capital ship very close, in order to score a successful hit. If a 
    fighter will get hit by this monster, it will be vaporized instantly. But with 
    that high cost, there are many cheaper ways to do that.
    RC: 6000 Cr. (for 2x)
    SP: 3600 Cr. (for 2x)
    
    Inertia Sapper (12x): This sapper decreases target`s speed and turn radius for 
    15s. It is very effective for mobile targets (if caught by surprise), to 
    destroy them more easily or to slow the bombers, allowing the interceptors or 
    capital ship`s turrets to destroy them more quickly. As with all sappers, you 
    must have a steady aim in order to hit a target with them.
    RC: 1300 Cr. (for 12x); 1495 Cr. (for 15x)
    SP: 780 Cr. (for 12x); 975 Cr. (for 15x)
    
    Phase Sapper (16x): It drains target`s shields for 20 seconds. Useful for 
    bombers or though fighters, to destroy them more quickly or to simply drain 
    their shield energy and disable them. As with all sappers, you must have a 
    steady aim in order to hit a target with them.
    RC: 1500 Cr. (for 16x); 1725 Cr. (for 20x) 
    SP: 900 Cr. (for 16x); 1125 Cr. (for 20x)
    
    
    Power Sapper (16x; 20x): Drains target`s afterburner and weapon energy for 30s. 
    If you hit an interceptor or any light fighter with him, he will become a 
    target practice. Also useful, if you want to nullify the offensive or es cape 
    capabilities of any fighter or bomber. As with all sappers, you must have a 
    steady aim in order to hit a target with them.
    RC: 1000 Cr. (for 16x); 1150 Cr. (for 20x)
    SP: 600 Cr. (for 16x); 750 Cr. (for 20x)
    
    Remote Sapper (2x): These are actually sticky bombs. It will attach to target 
    and will wait for your trigger command (press the 2nd time the fire button for 
    2s and release). A very good tactic is to to attach a lot of Remote Sappers and 
    detonate them in one massive explosion. Use it on bombers or capital ships: to 
    be more specific, near the turrets or powerplants. As with all sappers, you 
    must have a steady aim in order to hit a target with them.
    RC: 700 Cr. (for 2x)
    SP: 480 Cr. (for 2x)
    
    EMP Projector: This EW combines nuclear reactor with a modified laser weapon. 
    It is a non-lethal weapon and fires light EMP beams, that have a little effect 
    on shields and no effect to hull, but can cause significant damage to ship 
    systems. The use of this weapon may be necessary on some missions.
    RC: 6500 Cr.
    SP: 3900 Cr.
    
    Railgun: This weapon is the most effective weapon against the hull. The uranium 
    slug, that is fired with the support of electromagnetic coils, has tremendous 
    speed and uses about 10% of the WE. 2 or 1 hits required to destroy a ship with 
    no shields and 4 to 5 hits to deplete ship`s shields. Has great range and the 
    effect is instant. It is also very useful against the Capital ships (1 shot to 
    destroy a powerplant and 1 or 2 to destroy a turret).
    RC: 7200 Cr.
    SP: 4320 Cr.
    
    Corona Device: This special weapon turns your ship into a flying blast torpedo. 
    It uses a lot of SE (it completely depletes SE on Cutlass and Mace and leaves 
    some of it on Battleaxe, Claymore and Warhammer) and you have to be extremely 
    close to the target. Best used as a last resort in 1-on-1 dogfigfhting (energy 
    transformation will be necessary) or if you have a lot of SE, AE and WE, as 
    beginning of attack.
    RC: 5250 Cr.
    SP: 3150 Cr.
    
    
    
    GalSpan weapons:- Ammo Hold upgrade has no effect in increasing the ammo of 
    Helios Rocket
                    - torpedos are rechargeable
                    - ammo of the Chatter Cannon is replaced for free after every 
    mission - there for, you don`t have to buy the ammo
     
    Glint Light Laser: Although this weapon has been in service for a long time, it 
    has remained unchanged. High RoF, good power on shields and bad on hull says 
    all. It is energy efficient.
    RC: 1000 Cr.
    SP: 600 Cr.
    
    Flare Medium Laser: An improved version of Glint LL and is favorite among the 
    corporate pilots. It has a balanced power against the shields and hull, so it 
    can be used on its own. It is slightly less efficient against the hull than the 
    Boron ML. 
    RC: 2200 Cr.
    SP: 1320 Cr.
    
    Deimos Heavy Laser: This weapon was designed by PPS for rack-mount on turrets. 
    However, it has shown, that it is very effective, when mounted on fighter or 
    bomber. It is the most powerful laser in the galaxy. His slow RoF and big 
    energy consumption means, that it must be mixed with other weapons.
    RC: 2650 Cr.
    SP: 1590 Cr.
    
    Chatter Cannon (750x): Developed by PPS, this >> ship minigun << can rip 
    thought the ship hull with ease. It has a ultra-high RoF (10 rounds/s) and it`s 
    UT slugs have minimal effect on shields.
    RC: 9100 Cr. (for 750 UT slugs); 10461 Cr. (for 937 UT slugs)
    SP: 5460 Cr. (for 750 UT slugs); 6821 Cr. (for 937 UT slugs)
    
    Tiger Missile (12x): Small and maneuverable. Think of it`s power like something 
    between a Flare ML and Deimos HL and you won`t fail. It is guided. It is harder 
    to avoid this missile, even with countermeasures, but it is still possible.
    RC: 1000 Cr. (for 12x); 1100 Cr. (for 15x)
    SP: 650 Cr. (for 12x); 750 Cr. (for 15x)
    
    Sunspot Missile (8x): Developed by Oberon Inc,, this missile is slow but packs 
    heavy damage to the hull and moderate to the shields. Can be easily evaded with 
    countermeasures, so shoot it near the ship (not too close) and when you have it 
    in sight.
    RC: 2250 Cr. (for 8x); 2588 Cr (for 10x)
    SP: 1350 Cr. (for 8x); 1688 Cr. (for 10x)
    
    Swarm Missile(4x): A weapon, developed by Lorian Industrial Technologies with a 
    goal, to produce a guided missiles, that would be harder to avoid and would be 
    more immune to countermeasures. Each Swarm Missile contains 4 smaller rockets, 
    that will fly in a spiral pattern towards the target and can make a very good 
    dammage to bothe the ship`s hull and shields.
    RC: 3900 Cr. (for 4x); 4485 Cr. (for 6x)
    SP: 2340 Cr. (for 4x); 2925 Cr. (for 6x)
    
    Helios Rocket (2x): This type of rocket was developed by PPS for use on bombers 
    against the capital ship. It`s nuclear warhead is powerful, but it costs a lot, 
    it is slow and unguided and can be shoot down easily: there for, bombers have 
    to get to capital ship very close, in order to score a successful hit. If a 
    fighter will get hit by this monster, it will be vaporized instantly. But with 
    that high cost, there are many cheaper ways to do that.
    RC: 6000 Cr.
    SP: 3600 Cr.
    
    Tesla EMP Missile (6x): Can be easily evaded with countermeasures, so shoot it 
    near the ship (not too close) and when you have it in sight.
    RC: 4250 Cr. (for 6x); 4975 Cr. (for 8x)
    SP: 2250 Cr. (for 6x); 2975 Cr. (for 8x)
    
    Hunter Torpedo: This was one of the first fire-and-forget weapons in the 
    galaxy. It`s fusion warhed is useful for both the shields and the hull. 
    Recommended to use it before you fire your lasers or it is great, when combined 
    with other weapons (i.e. Deimos HL or Glint LL). As with all torpedos, it can 
    be destroyed by weapon`s fire.
    RC: 1700 Cr.
    SP: 1020 Cr.
    
    Solaris Torpedo: Developed by PPS, this weapon is a ship killer. When fully 
    charged, it will vaporize any fighter or bomber, that it hits. Good choice for 
    bombers or fighters, to bombard the capital ship. But beware: it consumes a lot 
    of WE and it slowly charges - there for, a miss can cost you your life. As with 
    all torpedos, it can be destroyed by weapon`s fire.
    RC: 3000 Cr.
    SP: 1800 Cr.
    
    Distuptor Torpedo: It`s warhead consist of magnetically-contained plasma, that 
    can fully deplete ship`s shields in one or two hits. This is a guided weapon.  
    As with all torpedos, it can be destroyed by weapon`s fire, so shoot it near 
    the ship (not too close) and when you have it in sight.
    Can also be easily evaded with countermeasures.
    RC: 4500 Cr.
    SP: 2700 Cr.
    
    Blast Torpedo: This torpedo is filled with dozens of micro-fusion warhead that 
    will trigger a massive radiation blast, when the torpedo hits something. As 
    with all torpedos, it can be destroyed by weapon`s fire.
    RC: 3300 Cr.
    SP: 1980 Cr.
    
    Advanced Blast Torpedo: It is exactly same as the Blast Torpedo but only with 
    this difference, that this is a guided weapon (has tracking capabilities). As 
    with all torpedos, it can be destroyed by weapon`s fire. Can be easily evaided 
    with countermeasures, so shoot it near the ship (not too close) and when you 
    have it in sight.
    RC: 3500 Cr.
    SP: 2100 Cr.
    
    Tractor Wave: This special weapon was designed by CMI as a cargo moving tool, 
    but was soon adapted for military use. It`s beam can slow target and it`s 
    turning radius, meaning that you can get a steady aim and fire with greater 
    accuracy or with little patience, to capture the ship (the beam slowly disables 
    ship`s systems). 
    RC: 7150 Cr.
    SP: 4290 Cr.
    ------------------------- 
    Note:- (SC) = indicates, that this is a type of upgrade, that is mainly a 
    system card (i.e. Ammo Hold = sys. card (software) + extended magazine 
    (hardware)
    
    Lead Target Assistant (SP): Developed by NaviTec, this is a must addition to 
    any starship. It calculates the optimal aiming point (crosshair) for unguided 
    weapons (i.e. rockets) and displays target`s velocity and distance.
    RC: 1500 Cr.
    SP: 900 Cr.
    
    Combat Scanner (SP): This upgrade is a joint effort between AGT and PPS. It is 
    a very useful upgrade, which monitors target`s shields and hull status.
    RC: 3250 Cr.
    SP: 1950 Cr.
    
    Afterburner: No smaller warship must be without Afterburner system: otherwise, 
    it is a sitting duck, even when flying. It give you a tremendous burst of speed 
    and drains the power from shields reserves. When completely drained, you will 
    return to your normal speed.
    RC: 2500 Cr.
    SP: 1500 Cr.
    
    Lock-On Warning (SP): Developed by Navitec, the Lock-On Warning system will 
    show a light when someone has you targeted with a guided weapon. If you have 
    this card, then this is your first clue that you have been spotted by the 
    enemy. A warning noise is sent to the onboard communications system and a 
    visible warning light is displayed on the HUD.
    RC: 3650 Cr.
    SP: 1950 Cr.
    
    Afterburner Reserves (SP): Designed by GS Propulsion Systems, this increases 
    your afterburner reserves (AE) by 25%. This is a must have for any good 
    strategist and can help you a lot in the battle.
    RC: 2800 Cr.
    SP: 1980 Cr.
    
    Shield Reserves (SP): Developed by PPS, this increases you shield reserves (SE) 
    by 25%. This is a must have for any good strategist and can help you a lot in 
    the battle.
    RC: 2300 Cr.
    SP: 1380 Cr.
    
    Laser Reserves (SP): A product form PPS, this increases your laser reserves 
    (WE) by 25%. This is a must have for any good strategist and can help you a lot 
    in the battle.
    RC: 3500 Cr.
    SP: 2100 Cr.
    
    Burn-Off Device (SP): As we know, sappers have an ability, to drain the power 
    from key systems. NaviTec has developed a solution for this threat. This 
    upgrade will fire a concentrated burst of energy, disabling any kind of sapper 
    in the process.
    RC: 4500 Cr.
    SP: 2700 Cr.
    
    Advanced Radar (SP): Do you hate the jamming technology? Well, NaviTec has 
    developed something very helpful to eliminate the jamming effects. A side 
    effects is, that it shields your radar system and there for eliminates the 
    scrambling effect of lighting strikes. 
    RC: 3250 Cr.
    SP: 1950 Cr.
    
    EW Jamming (SP): Yet another product form NaviTec, this card scrambles the 
    targeting systems of the enemy ships, so that it makes your ship harder to hit 
    with guided weapon (i.e. torpedos, missiles) and also jamms the radar - you 
    don`t appear on the radar of an enemy ship, if you are more than 40km away from 
    it.
    RC: 6500 Cr.
    SP: 3900 Cr.
    
    Lock-On Defense (SP): The only upgrade, that CMI has ever developed and a very 
    useful one. It is recommended it for every ship, because it can help you to 
    entirely evade dangerous missiles and deadly torpedos. It releases (press the C 
    button) a swarm of energized particles (countermeasures), that last only for a 
    small period of time.
    RC: 5650 Cr. 
    SP: 3390 Cr.
    
    Tracking Enhanchements (SP): This card is an recent breakthrought by Lorian 
    Industrial Technologies in tracking technology. It will speed up the process of 
    acquiring the target with a guided weapon by 25%.
    RC: 3750 Cr.
    SP: 2250 Cr.
    
    Ammo Hold (SP): Lorian Industrial Technologies have developed this outstanding 
    upgrade to extend the ammunition by 25%. Useful for both the bombers and 
    fighters, if there are heavy dogfightings or extensive Capital ship battles, 
    then this can save you your life.
    RC: 1200 Cr.
    SP: 720 Cr.
    
    Fog Radar (SP): Another great development by Biolith, this enchanches your 
    radar to cut trough the Twilight fog, allowing you to better navigate in the 
    fogy sectors. It is not very necessary, but will help you great, if you will 
    have to locate something.
    RC: 3250 Cr. 
    SP: 1950 Cr.
    
    Radiation Screen: Developed by Biolith, this is the only thing, that will keep 
    you safe from the radiation of the Twilight fog. This is a must addition to 
    your ship, if you are traveling in the Twilight region.
    RC: 4850 Cr.
    SP: 2910 Cr.
    
    Smart Shield (SP): This is surely one of the best upgrades from NaviTec. It can 
    automatically diverse your shields to the front or back section and can 
    increase the required amount of shield`s power, based on the damage of the 
    shields. However, if you prefer changing and manipulating with power on your 
    own, this upgrade can become annoying and there for, don`t buy it.
    RC: 4650 Cr.
    SP: 2790 Cr.
    
    Boosters (SP): Developed by AGT, this upgrade increases your top speed by 25%. 
    This is especially useful for bombers, to escape interceptors and Capital 
    ships`s turrets, but is also great for fighters, to maximize their pursuit 
    chances. 
    RC: 3800 Cr.
    SP: 2280 Cr.
    
    Lateral Thrust (SP): Another great development from GS Propulsion Systems, this 
    upgrade enchanches your ship, so that it can strafe left and right. It is very 
    useful for engaging multipe enemies and to perform tactical attacks.
    RC: 6250 Cr.
    SP: 3750 Cr.

    about 9 GalSpan Posedion and 3 Pegasus will start to attack. I suggest, you 
    destroy first the Pegasus fighter (elm. Pictor) and then start blasting away 
    the Posedions, that are attacking the freighters (elm. Octans will attack 
    Traveler, elm. Mensa will attack Bold and elm. Ares will attack Dromedary). 
    Order your wingman to take care of one Posedion attacking the Medical frigate. 
    Concentrate on one enemy or more ships, if they are close with each other. If 
    it hits A., leave it and shoot the nearest one. When a hull of one freighter 
    will approach critical, Star Patrol will show up and help you destroy the 
    remaining ships. With little >> psycho << shooting, you will save all 3 ships 
    (but Medical frigate has the highest priority!). Jump after this to 
    Independence sector, wait for a little time, then return to home.

                        !!!!!THE BIG DECISION!!!!!
    This next two mission missions, if you will join Bora or GalSpan. I recommend, 
    that you exit the game, copy the current saved game slot to the empty one. In 
    this way, you will not have to go from the beginning to decide, which mission 
    will you go.

    * Withdraw From Independence (go this, if you want to join the Bora) 
    Objectives:- Head to Independence station
               - Protect personnel evacuating the station
               - Engage GalSpan ships if they attack
    Employer: Bora
    -----
    Renezvous with Bora force in Independence sector. Now ambush any incoming 
    fighter or bomber (when it leaves your vision zone, switch immediately to 
    another ship, that will come out from TCG). The 1st wave will consist of 3 
    Pegasus (elm. Pegasi) and 6 Posedions (elm. Cancer(3) and elm. Gemini(3)). Pay 
    attention to elm. Gemini, because it will try to destroy the fleeing Bora 
    shuttles. Order your wingman to engage Gemini-1, you take Gemini-2 and the last 
    one will be pursued by Bora ships. When all enemy ships are destroyed, the 
    shuttle will land with the carrier Inrepid, it will jump into hyperspace and 
    the mission will be complete. You can go home now, but if you feel as a 
    warrior, stay then. The second wave will consist of 3 Posedions (elm. Scorpion) 
    - not too hard to destroy. The 3dh wave will be the toughest.
    It will consist of 4 Pegasus (elm. Serpens), 4 Archangels (elm. Caelum) and a 
    destroyer Pan. You and your wingman should engage Archangels first, but when 
    the destroy wil get near the base, break off your current offensive and destroy 
    it`s weapons powerplant as fast as you can. When you do that, it will be unable 
    to fire it`s turrets and the friendly Bora ships will fight with GalSpan much 
    more easier. Continue to destroy Archangels and Pegasus, destroy a WP on the 
    weapons platform near the TCG gate and blast that destroyer to hell. After 
    this, go home.

    * Recoil
    Objectives:- Head to Industrial Sector

               - Proced to Frontier Gate in Scrap Yards
               - Deliver the to Gate Industries technician
    Employer: Bora
    -----
    Go to Industrial Sector. This mission will be quick and little funny. When you 
    arrive there, the Drake Station and one of their employer will be quarelling 
    about his payment. The diplomatic efforts will fail and so he will activate his 
    drones to shoot at the station. Your objective now is simple - there are 10 
    mines (elm. Anvil) and you have to destroy the mine Anvil 1, because this mine 
    is actually the computer core: all other mines (are receiving drones. With this 
    quick action, all other mines will deactivate, the angry contractor will curse 
    you and the station and he will leave the sector. Land on the docking pad, get 
    the coil and proceed to Scrap Yards. In the middle of way, in Star Patrol 
    Farpost, Commander Obulu will intercept you and question you about the coil - 
    you don`t have to worry about this, because Jake Logan is master of convincing 
    the others. When you arrive in Scrap Yards, just land on the ship Tycho Brahe 
    to deliver the core. In the meantime, you and the technician will quarrel about 
    this coil, but anything will be good, the coil will be installed and you will 
    be able to return to home.

    Objectives:- Escort shuttle Courage to Industrial Sector
               - Protect shuttle crew until it retakes Intrepid
               - Escort Intrepid back to Alpha Station
    Employer: Bora
    -----
    My advice for this mission is to equip your ship with Plasma rockets and Remote 
    sappers. Go to the the Industrial Sector and search for the 4 Darts (elm. Wyrm) 
    and launch the remotes on the two Darts. Now look at the docking pad: go there 
    and you will find a docked shuttle and a powerplant: damage it, until 1% will 
    remain to its destruction. Now, await the friendly shuttle`s report. When they 
    say to destroy the powerplant, do so and destroy the GalSpan shuttle near you. 
    Remember the remotes, that you placed them on Darts? Activate them and watch 
    the firework. All 4 will be destroyed by a big explosion. Enormous save of 
    time. Now intercept 8 Posedions (elm. Nergal) at Hera TCG and destroy them all, 
    one by one. In the meantime, order your wingman to protect the Carrier 
    (Intrepid). And when you are hitting those Posedions, hit them hard: launch 
    doubled Plasma rockets at each of them and finish them of with lasers. When 
    they`r gone and Intrepid escapes, go immediately home, because one GalSpan 
    frigate (Artemis), about 4 Pegasus and 4 Star Patrol Enforces will show up and 
    will be hot on your tail. Just escape
    (Note: anyone, that is experienced, trigger-happy pilot, can eventually destroy 
    them all - I`ve done that multipe times, but then stopped, because killing 
    police officers was bad for me).

    Emerald) will show up, trying to kill you. Order your wingman to attack 
    Piranhas, while you take care of all Darts. Finish then the Piranhas and

    -----
    Go to the Onrald`s Barony. In the middle of the way, you will have some talking 
    with Redship Rory, but he will leave you alone. But his companions won`t, 
    because they need target practice. Show those 2 Shrikes (elm. Death) the eror 
    of their ways. Go to the TCG, that is close to the base, because close to the 
    other TCG, a GalSpan cruiser (named Persephone) is disabled there. They will of 
    course call for help, but when they figure out, that you are Bora, they will 
    start firing on you. Anyway go to the next sector and destroy 4 annoying drones 
    (elm. Shakespeare and Degas), pick up the laser core, destroy 2 Nighthawks 
    (elm. War) in the pirate`s sector and return home.

    right away. Look at these gun platforms: search the WP of each platform and 
    destroy it. There are about 7 of these. Then quickly destroy the landed 
    fighters (elm. Deuce and Dictator) and you`r done. Hajod will then crazy and 
    will order to activate the platforms. Unfortunately, they will not function, 
    because you have destroyed the WPs. Also, his patrol, containing 4 Midge 
    Protectors (elm. Sovereign) will try to stop you. Either have fun with them and 
    destroy them or just leave and get back to starbase.

    You will have to go the Foothold sector. But before you arrive there, there

    say: get to Foothold, follow the buoy`s direction and pick up both crates.
    Now return and you will meet another 4 Mantas (elm. Roach) waiting you to raid.

    Do as the objective states. Ignore the 4 Mantas (elm. Dragonfly), that you will 
    meet on the way. When you will be returning to base, you will see that a Star 
    Patrol Enforcer (elm. Bolt 1) is in serious trouble: about 8 Mantas will try to 
    kill that police officer. You can freely go to the base, but a better option 
    will be to help her. Search for the 4 Mantas that are directly attacking her 
    and quickly shoot them down. Now got to the other 4 and destroy them as well.
    You don`t even have to worry about the last pirate, because she will destroy 
    it. One warning: react and kill quickly, or you and the police officer will be 
    pretty quick dead. Anyway, this action will make everyone happy and Skavs will 
    forget this quick enough.

    -----
    Fly to Portcullis sector and wait for the friendly pirates, 3 Bora Battleaxes 
    and 1 Cutlass (elm. Claw) and GalSpan ships. When the pirates show up, GalSpan 
    frigate (named Orpheus) along with 2 Orions (elm. Lighting) and 2 Posedions 
    (elm. Lynx) will pursue the 8 pirate Mantas (elm. Wasp and Mantis). Of course, 
    the TCGs will close, Valliant station will jamm Spanner communications and they 
    will fall into trap. Bora fighter will tell you to engage enemy fighters but 
    ignore that. First go behind the frigate, where it has engines. Because enemy 
    will be busy with fighting pirates, Bora fighters and your wingman, you will 
    have no problem with destroying the power plant: the frigate will then be 
    disabled. Quickly destroy also the WP on the right side and then deal with the

    -----
    Equip yourself first with EMP Projector and go to the New Dawn sector, as first 
    objective states. When there, go further into minefield and you will 2 GalSpan 
    frigates, Apus and Aphrodite, along with the fighter escort, consisting of 4 
    Orions (elm. Athene). Destroy the first three Orions and disable the 4th with 
    the EMP Projector. Then carefully get close to Apus (not too close, mantain 
    distance of about 7km), where it has engines. Destroy the power plant, then 
    destroy two turrets on the right side, that are somewhat in the same line. That 
    will give you more safety to destroy the WP; just be close to the frigate and 
    they won`t be able to shoot you down. Do the same with Aphrodite. Remember that 
    Orion you disabled? Destroy it. Now a Bora carrier Fortress and its bomber 
    assault force along with fighter escort will show up. The frigates will try to 
    run away, but they won`t be able: you destroyed their PPs. Besides, you 
    destroyed their WPs, so they won`t be able to shoot. Destroy the SGs and they 
    will be totaly defensless: carrier with Armageddon laser and bombers with their 
    ordnance will make a big boom of these frigates. Just watch the firework and 
    then return to base.

    good to leave them alone, but if you manage to destroy them, then good. Go into 
    next sector and you will see natural object along with beautiful nebula (if 
    this would be for real, I would like to be photograph). But your relaxation 
    will be ended because of another two Demons (elm. Shade). Destroy them and now 
    search for smaller asteroid field with crystals: it`s basically 90 grades on 
    the left side. There, you will quickly see a crystal, that is shinning brightly 
    white. Pick up that crystal and another two Demons will show up (elm. Lurker). 
    You can escape right away or have fun with them and vaporise them. Return to

    My suggestion is that you equip yourself with Remote Sappers. Fly to Industrial

    Magellan convoy. Proceed to the element Jade, match speed with Jade 2 and 
    launch a Remote Sapper on it, the another one on Jade 3. When they will start 
    attacking, activate Remotes and at least one Piranha will be vaporised, while 
    other two will be heavy damaged. If you fail, don`t worry. Just kill them. 
    Order your wingman to take those two, while take a sudden and deadly action 
    against all Piranhas in element Amber, when they will be still relatively close 
    to each other. And ignore Leon`s ship. He is just a coward and will run away 
    from you and escape trough Alpha TCG. Don`t worry: his time will come. When the

    Poltergeist). I suggest that you order your wingman to protect you and 
    concentrate on wiping out element Poltergeist, because it will attack the 
    Sightseer. Kill quick as much as possible, because 4 Demons more will arrive 
    (elm. Specter and Phantasm). Destroy them as well. When the liner will jump 
    out, 3 Demons more will arrive (elm. Spook). You can just leave them or destroy 
    them as well. Return again to Dusk sector. 1 Demon (elm. Wisp) will show up. 
    You can also leave destroy them or leave them. Your choice. When the captain of

    -----
    Head to Draconis sector. Now as you will see, there are about 6 drones (elm. 
    Cyclops, Medusa and Gorgons). As the drones only have forward scan cone, they 
    won`t see you, if you come to the station from the upper way: just fly high and 
    drop very fast and close to docking pad of station. The operative will eject 
    the computer core. Pick up and you will have to return to base. Unfortunately 
    for you, the gates will close and 12 more drones will show up (elm. Cupus, 
    Cetus and Cronus). To make things worse, 6 Pegasus, one carrier and a frigate 
    will arrive. But the good things is, that those capital ships and Pegasus must 
    have time to respond distress call from station and to arrive. So, my advice 
    is, to destroy as much drones as possible. When the cavalary arrives, destroy 
    those 6 Pegasus (elm. Nergal) and avoid capital ships.. After some time, the 
    gates will open and you will be free to go. Or you can stay and face 6 Pegasu 
    more (elm. Calypso) and both capital ships. But question is, if you dare to 
    want to really face them. Well, I always destroy them. How? Simple. Destroy and 
    remaining drones and eliminate Pegasus. Then wait, until your energy for all 
    three systems recharge and position yourself at a safe distance from the 
    carrier Ursa Major, on the side, where the WP is located. Now, I hope you have 
    Railgun or Plasma Rockets. Get speed to maximum and have in mind, that you have 
    to destroy the WP. If you do this, the carrier will be a sitting duck and you 
    will have a clear way to destroy this beast. However, if you will not do this 
    quick or you don`t have heavy weapons to destroy this powerplant, you are 
    toasted. Anyway, the frigate will be much more easier. Target the WP and it`s 
    yours.

    * The Grand Plan
    Objectives:- Head to Draconis ripstar field
               - Rendezvous with Susan`s Lance fighters
               - Assist frigate Deliverance in destroying Hephaestus
    Employer: Bora
    -----
    First, make sure you are equipped with Railgun and Plasma Rockets. Fly to 
    Ripping Fields sector. Something weird will happen, as two satellites will 
    explode right away, when you show up. You will soon discover the meaning of 
    this: 12 Corvuses will jump in to eliminate; the gates will also close. 
    Apparently, GalSpan is cowardly, to take you out on his own and yet, they want 
    you dead really bad. Wait for a little and always be close to Liberty TCG: that 
    will be your safe zone. As you see, those Corvuses will be all have formation 
    by 2. Fire some shots at anyone and lure them away from main fleet to yourself 
    and your wingman and annihilate about 4 of them in this way. Be quick and hit 
    hard. Then, locate elements, that will have still 2 fighters: take out your big 
    guns and destroy them all. Also, Susan`s Lance fighters will show up and help 
    you destroying those mercenaries. When they`r dead, return to base.

               - Destroy Hephaestus mining platform
    Employer: Bora
    -----
    This will be your last mission on Bora side and the hardest, so arm yourself to 
    teeth (Helios Rockets recommended. Proceed to Ripping Fields. Wait for Susan`s 
    command to destroy that scouts (4 Orions). Now prepare yourself for though 
    battle. When you arrive, quickly order your wingman to attack one Corvus. Your 
    pick up any other Corvus and destroy it. Also, search for element Colonae and 
    for Orions. They haven`t even started their engines, because this attack has 
    caught the off-guard. Destroy those ones quick and then finish the rest. When 
    the gates for Hephaestus sector opens, go there. This next battle will be 
    massive. Fight te Orions and destroy all of them, while Deliverance will bring 
    mining platform`s shields down. After they are down, go to the back of 
    platform, stop your fighter and launch all of your rockets, sappers, whatever 
    you got and constantly fire Railgun. The GalSpan flagship, carrier Zeus will 
    destroy Deliverance but don`t allow that distract you. Fire your weapons like 
    mad and the platform will eventually blow up. After a nice cutscene, you have 
    completed mission. 
    
    Congratulations on completing campaign of Bora side!

    Employer: GalSpan
    -----
    Head to Honor sector and destroy 2 Cutlasses (elm. Mutiny). Then go into next 
    sector. There will be a lot freighters, but the freighter, that you are 
    searching for has name Burrow. Get close to it and scanners will of course 
    confirm that. Now match speed and destroy it`s PP. When it is destroyed, 2 more 
    Cutlasses (elm. Valor) will arrive. You can also disable another freighter`s 
    PP, if you really want. My choice was freighter Traveler, who carried side-arms 
    and destroyed it, because it was the most moral. Other were things and stuff, 
    that even civilians would require. Anyway, you must first destroy that 2 
    Cutlasses. After you do that, you will have some talking with commander Obulu 
    and 3 GalSpan destroyers will arrive. You can now finish that freighter 
    (Traveler or any else you disabled, except Burrow) or return to base.

    Employer: GalSpan
    -----
    Proceed to Midas station in Venture sector. You will have to question virtual 
    all Frontier to get the answer, that the irritating ship is in Malkar`s Barony. 
    But I always went and questioned in this way: first I went to Skav sector: you 
    will meet the 4 Mantas (elm. Mantis and Aphid), that will want to destroy you. 
    Leave or destroy them. Now go to the Void sector, to meet friendly pirates. 
    Then, go into Slave sector and meet evil baron Hajod. If you go to Fury sector, 
    you will meet a horde of pirates ships, that will also try to destroy you. You 
    can either leave or fly to safety of friendly cruiser Persephone and watch, how 
    this beautiful ship will kill those pirates. Anyway, none of those four will 
    give you correct answer. The only option will be Arman Patrioli in Dark sector. 
    But anything I said you now was only suggestion to get know the Frontier region 
    better and to familiarize yourself with your enemies and friends. If you want 
    to skip all this, go to Malkar`s Barony and there you will find that vessel. It 
    will escape, but you will get the information. Also don`t fight with that 
    Treggs there: you won`t stand a chance. Return to base for your pay.

    Go to the Hajod`s Barony. When you arrive there, don`t destroy the fighters 
    right away. Look at these gun platforms: search the WP of each platform and 
    destroy it. There are about 7 of these. Then quickly destroy the landed 
    fighters (elm. Deuce and Dictator) and you`r done. Hajod will then crazy and 
    will order to activate the platforms. Unfortunately, they will not function, 
    because you have destroyed the WPs. Also, his patrol, containing 4 Midge 
    Protectors (elm. Sovereign) will try to stop you. Either have fun with them and 
    destroy them or just leave and get back to starbase.

    You will have to go the Foothold sector. But before you arrive there, there

    raid. They will ignore you, but destroy them all. Now proceed as objectives 
    say: get to Foothold, follow the buoy`s direction and pick up both crates.
    Now return and you will meet another 4 Mantas (elm. Roach) waiting you to raid.

    the freighter there and 2 Battleaxes (elm. Resolve) will be fighting two 
    Pegasus. Those Battleaxes are actually the source of problems, otherwise, they 
    would be dead: they have jamming devices. Send your wingman to attack the 
    Cutlasses and you take care of the element Resolve. Once they`r gone, destroy 2 
    more Cutlasses (elm. Claw) and you are free to go.

    Wait for Cephius to jump to Skav space and then protect it against attack from 
    8 Mantas (elm. Hornet and Aphid). But shoot just occasional pirate, because you

    care of them. Now, in Foothold sector, the Bora will launch serious counter-
    attack, consisting of 12 Claymores (elm. Honor, Rebellion, Trident and 
    Ballista) and 3 Cutlasses (elm. Sword. Go first to the elements Honor and 
    Rebellion and start shooting like mad. Even if you don`t destroy them, your 
    efforts will distract them from launching their ordinance and help your friends 
    to destroy them easier. After the action is under control, land with the 
    containment pad and release sabo-drone. The pad will be destroyed and a lot od 
    ripstars will come out. The enemy will launch second counter-attack, composed 
    of 4 Claymores (elm. Catapult) and 3 Cutlasses (elm. Faith). Again, leave

    sector, look around you: about 170 Bora mine and 3 minelayers. I know it sounds 
    boring to destroy all this (I always destroy them all, but it takes a lot of 
    time), but I say this: this mission is excellent to train yourself with 
    weapons, that you don`t know well or haven`t mastered it yet. And minelayers 
    are excellent choice to train yourself for fighting against the capital chips.
    Anyway, when your arrive in Canopus sector, there will be 15 Daggers (elm.

    Do as the 1st objective says. You will see, that there are 9 Mantas, as well as 
    2 Cutlasses (elm. Claw) and 2 Warhammers (elm. Triumph). Destroy about 3 
    Mantas, send your wingman to attack Cutlasses, while you start attacking the

    Destroying the satellite will also solve problem, but you will get paid less.

    * Magellan Shipment
    Objectives:- Escort Magellan to Hera sector
    Employer: Alpha Control
    -----
    My suggestion is that you equip yourself with Remote Sappers. Fly to Industrial 
    sector. See that 6 Piranhas (elm. Jade and Amber)? They will attack the 
    Magellan convoy. Proceed to the element Jade, match speed with Jade 2 and 
    launch a Remote Sapper on it, the another one on Jade 3. When they will start 
    attacking, activate Remotes and at least one Piranha will be vaporised, while 
    other two will be heavy damaged. If you fail, don`t worry. Just kill them. 
    Order your wingman to take those two, while take a sudden and deadly action 
    against all Piranhas in element Amber, when they will be still relatively close 
    to each other. And ignore Leon`s ship. He is just a coward and will run away 
    from you and escape trough Alpha TCG. Don`t worry: his time will come. When the 
    coast is clear, go to Hera sector, wait little and get back to starbase.

    land with it. But you will have to evade incoming Bora force, the remainders of 
    the assault: 2 Maces (elm. Catapult), 4 Battleaxes (elm. Morning Star) and a 
    destroyer Integrity. Shoot down those fighters or just leave them. In next 
    sector, you will see another 4 Maces (elm. Sword and Valor) as well as 2 
    Warhammers (elm. Maul). Destroy them all. If you have bomber and good

    ======================================================
    11)FAQ, misc information, general and multiplayer tips
    ====================================================== 
    Note: Q - question; A - answer
    
    1.)Q: Why are there constant crashes; the game has frozen; my ship blew up?!
       A: The most logical answer to this problem is, that you have a bad graphic 
    card. NovaLogic has created a very adv. graphics for this game and some years 
    ago, there were only few really good graphics cards, that could support this 
    kind of graphics. However, nowadays there shouldn`t be no more problems, 
    because there is a big chance, that you have already a good card. Another 
    option may be to turn down your gamma to 1.1 to 1.3 level. It is also 
    recommended, to play the game in software mode and not in the hardware mode.
    Downloading newest patch may also solve the problem.
    
    2.)Q: How can I change to software mode?
       A: Open up your Tachyon.cfg file with WordPad and under the 
    [VIDEO] section, change USE_HARDWARE=1 to USE_HARDWARE=0, then 
    save the file.   
     
    3.)Q: Which graphics cards does this game support?
       A: All major 3D cards, that are supported with Direct 3D, 
    including 3dfx VOODOO II & III, RIVA TNT I & II, ATI RAGE FURY and 
    GE FORCE.
    
    4.)Q: Which side should I join? Bora or GalSpan?
       A: There are many answers to this question, but generally, it goes like 
    this: if you want to be bad and have a lot of money, join the GalSpan. If you 
    want to be good and have some more friends and allies thorough The Fringe, then 
    join the Bora. This choice can also depend, what ships or weapon do you like 
    more, which character do you like more etc.
    
    5.)Q: I don`t know, which ship should I take!
       A: The first limitation is your money: some ships cost surprisingly low 
    while other very high. The next thing is, what you like doing in space: blowing 
    the big ships and relying on your piloting skills or escort for survival or 
    hunting down and killing other fighters and bombers as well as protecting 
    capital ships. I suggest that you take your time and think what suits you the 
    best, because that will affect your campaign for a long time.
    
    6.)Q: There are so many weapons, that I don`t know, which one would I mount on 
    my ship!
       A: First off, you must question yourself, if you like barbaric fights, were 
    firepower is everything or if you are a clever tactician, who can turn 
    seemingly ineffective and low power weapons to deadly ones. If you like the 
    first option, then choose weapons like missiles, rockets, Railgun, powerful 
    torpedos. . .in short, something that really kills. If you like the second one, 
    then choose weapons like Corona Device, sappers, Tesla EMP missile, EMP 
    Projector. . .well, weapons that don`t directly kill and require some more 
    skills and patience, but their effect will pay off, even if you have weak 
    lasers. 
     The second question is, if you prefer bomber (heavy, slow and powerful 
    weapons, more ammo) or fighter (somewhat light, fast weapons and less ammo) and 
    also what type of it: for example if you will fly heavy bomber, it means, that 
    you will have ability to put really destructible weapons and weapons, that will 
    serve you well in battles against the fighters; if you will fly multirole 
    bomber, it means that you will have more speed, will not be able to mount so 
    many heavy weapons, so you will need to think, how to best equip your bomber 
    for fight against the capital ship. 
     After all, those 2 questions are even not necessary, if you like some weapons 
    and you are skilled at them: of course it is good to know other weapons, but 
    sometimes, it is not good to try right away. Learn step by step.
    
    7.)Q: I`m totaly confused from those system upgrade for ship? Which one to take 
    first?
       A: There are 4 basic upgrades, that have to be present on any kind of ship: 
    Lead Target Assistant, Combat Scanner, Afterburner and A.Reserves. The first 
    two will give you basic information about other ship, which is quite important 
    and the last two give you speed, which is quite essential for survival and 
    conquering the others. Besides, the empty slot, where you will give the 
    A.Reserves, is only reserved for this upgrade.
     The next upgrades are somewhat connected with your style of flying and ship: 
    for brutal fighting more energy reserves, for clever tactics jammers, special 
    radars etc.; for bombers more defensive upgrades, such as Lock-On Defense and 
    for fighters more offense upgrades, such as Aim-Point Module or Tracking 
    Enhancements.
    
    8.)Q: I have read your FAQ, but I still didn`t find the information, that I am 
    looking for!
       A: Try finding it at the following websites: 
    - http://www.novalogic.co.uk - NovaLogic 
    - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tachyon:_The_Fringe - basic information about 
    the game
    - http://www.novalogic.com/games.asp?GameKey=TTF - OFFICIAL SITE
    - http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/tachyon-the-fringe - GameSpy source of information
    
    9.)Q: Who the heck are you?
       A: I`m a hardcore FPS gamer, that has been on GameFAQs for a little while.
    
    10.)Q: Will you make more FAQs? And for what games?
       A: Certainly. Expect FAQs for the games like Half-Life 2, DOOM 3,. . .in 
    short, for FPS. But I will also try to make some of them for space-simulations 
    and RTS games.

    Note:- moderate to massive spoilers 
    
    
    
    (SMC) Jovian Planets Robotics Inc. Was founded in 2385. It is the leading 
    developer and manufacturer of robotic pilot programs.
    
    The reason for all tragedy in the Twilight region was dr. Randal Cassitor. He 
    was actually the former member of League of Scientist, but they suspended him, 
    because he was performing an illegal experiments on the humans. He escaped to 
    Twilight region and established his own research station and shipyards. Then he 
    began to his twisted and evil experiments on all unsuspecting scientist, 
    visitors, and even pirates. Thus the Demon Pirates emerged. Now having an army 
    of these psychos, he somewhat managed to order them to attack the Deep Fringe 
    Array starbase, despite their hostility towards the doctor. 
    
    GalSpan was behind the destruction of Halley Research station. They infected 
    the station with deadly virus and when they realized, that Biolith discovered 
    that GalSpan was somehow connected with this mess, they sent their cleaning 
    solution: the medical shuttle Agrosso 149, which actually had bomb aboard. 
    That`s way your ship`s scanner could recognize the Agrosso cargo: it was 
    unknown. Naturally, shielded from scanners. Also, even if that area was 
    supposed to be quarantined, someone was leaving trough Hub MTCG, right after 
    you and the Agrosso showed up. Any you was then the guilty donkey.
    
     Tachyon-Coil generator Gates allows smaller ships to travel long distances. 
    Without them and the travel they allow, there will be no colonization of other 
    parts of galaxy. 
     Adv. designs of gate are powered by a specific type of singularity, ripstar, 
    which is used to form a warp in space. This allows a space ship to catch a ride 
    on a faster-than-light wave and instantly travel long distances. The wave is 
    made up by tachyons, which are sub-atomic particles, that can never slow below 
    the speed of light. 
     For enormous distances, such as between regions, a more powerful gates are 
    required: the mega Tachyon-Coil generator Gates, but not all ships have acces 
    to it. Capital ships and other larger vessels have their own interal TCG, 
    called Tachyon drive. Those drives are far too massive for mount on smaller 
    ships plus they need a lot of energy and time to activate. The ships also relly 
    on nearby TCG for proper guidance.
    
    In Far Space sector, in Twilight region, ther are many crstals there. The least 
    worth is Garnet (red colored), then Citrine (yellow c.), next is Berly (green 
    c.), another is Covelline (blue c.), one of the most important is Tanzinite 
    (purple c.) and the last, rare as well the most precious is Opaline (bright, 
    glowing crystal, white c.).
    
    The freighters in mission Picking The Stone (GalSpan side), were carrying:
    - Traveler: side-arms
    - Burrow: singularity containment device
    - Exploration: robotic equipment
    - Hope: electronic components
    - Victory: refined metals
    - Promise: deuterium fuel cells
    - Inspiration: life-support equipment
    - Exemption: carbon composites
    - Pilgrim: reprocessed scrap metal
    - Camel 47: water ice
    
    The codes for mega TCGs are as follows:
    Hub-Frontier: H/F-006-001
    Hub-Bora: H/B-003-003
    Hub-Galspan: H/G-008-001
    Frontier-Hub: F/H-001-006
    Frontier-Bora: F/B-001-003
    Frontier-Twilight: F/T-006-002
    Twilight-Frontier: T/F-002-006
    Twilight-Ripstar: T/R-006-008
    Galspan-Hub: G/H-001-008
    Galspan-Ripstar: G/R-006-008
    Bora-Hub: B/H-003-003
    Bora-Frontier: B/F-003-001
    Bora-Ripstar: B/R-008-001
    Ripstar-Bora: R/B-001-008
    Ripstar-Twilight: R/T-008-006
    You can also see those codes on the contract picture (left upper corner). Those 
    codes are here just for information and will not help you cheating. As you can 
    see, the 6 number codes and starting letter only change their place, i.e. Hub-
    Frontier code H/F-006-001 And Frontier-Hub is just the opposite, F/H-001-006. 
    Also, the irony is, that if you would like to go to Galspan region, you would 
    only need put the same number code as for Bora-Ripstar and change the letter 
    B/R with H/G and you would have direct access, even if you would be Bora! But 
    who would know that. . .
    
    USG is composed by three branches: the first and social branch is The Ministry 
    of Peace And Wellbeing and is responsible for socio-economic stability of all 
    USG territories as well as attends the needs of law-abiding citizens; the 
    second and enforcement branch is Star Patrol: information about it can be found 
    in Factions sector; the third, judicial branch is Tribunal, that hands out 
    punishment to lawbreakers caught by Star Patrol: the most egregious cases are 
    taken by High Tribunal, which has ability to hand out sever punishments, like 
    permanent exile from Sol space and highly controversial genetic recombination.
    
     In mission The Identity Game (GalSpan side), I said that Quasar was the real 
    agent. How did I found that out? And why she? Simple. Greyhound says, that he 
    reports straight to director Atkins. But the spy was supposed to be agent of 
    Mrs. Bales (your job coordinator). So he fell into a trap. What about Obsidian? 
    He reports to >> Trish <<. Quasar also. But there are two things, that are 
    wrong about Obsidian. First, only you call Mrs. Bales so and he speaks in free 
    style, while Quasar speaks strict and sounds as a real corporate employer. 
    That`s why Quasar is the real agent. 
     Also, do you remember the satellite, that was under the Canopus station? It`s 
    a trap. If you shoot it and destroy it, another satellite will apear about 30km 
    away from station. If you also destroy it, about 6 satellites will appear about 
    20km further away from you. Nothing serious, you would think. But if you 
    destroy any of that 6 satellites, two Bora cruisers will show up. Your only 
    chance is then, to run. But my opinion is to just avoid that, because some 
    could get panic and could actually die there pretty quick. This also proves, 
    how valuable, important and sensible is that information about Susan Bradley. 
    
    ------------------------- 
    
    - learn to use every single weapon(!), because ever single one has its own use
    - sappers can drain energy from key systems, but are hard to master
    - torpedos are slow and cost a lot of energy but have deadly effect
    - the difference between guided missiles and unguided rockets is, that you get 
    more rockets and less missiles and that missiles can be evaded via the 
    countermeasures, but are in general more powerful than rockets
    - learn well the transfer system: it can save you a life
    - master the slide maneuver: if you are using the A., use slide maneuver and 
    you will continue heading with the same speed with no cost of energy, but in 
    same direction; useful for many tactical moves
    - it is good to know, how to use the reserve trust and match speed features, 
    especially when you are using Tractor Wave weapon
    - don`t underestimate the special weapons: they can be very helpful in their 
    own way
    - always watch your afterburner, shield and weapon energy reserves
    - be careful, when selling things back: it can greatly increase your money but 
    buying them again can cost you more
    - take your time and explore every area - you may find interesting things lying 
    around the starbases and asteroid fields
    - TNS news are a great source of information about everything
    - Galactic Map can help you with your strategy
    - prioritize your enemy, based on their danger and importance
    - be sure to use the right weapon in the combat: some weapons good against the 
    the hull, other against the shields, few of them affect only electronic systems 
    of the ship or just have gravity effect on the ship
    - capital ship`s turrets can make a rain of lasers and may look, that it is 
    impossible to destroy it, but is actually very easy: unlike in other space 
    simulations (i.e. Freespace 2), just one turret was very dangerous, but fired 
    slower; in this game, those turrets fire very fast, there are many of them but 
    the laser bolts move slow and the power isn`t very high and all tend to 
    concentrate on one or 2 fighters: there for just two fighters or bombers, who 
    are fast, can make complete chaos with their defense, so it becomes very 
    vulnerable
    - another weak points of capital ships are various powerplants, that aren`t 
    even shielded: for instance, destroy all powerplants and their engines will be 
    dead; destroy a WP and turrets will be disabled; destroy a SG and shields will 
    stop functioning
    - starbases, gun platforms and stations have turrets and WPs, that are heavily 
    shielded (they also don`t have outer SG) and can`t be destroyed; but I have 
    noticed, that if you shoot the turret several times, it will stop shooting, 
    like it was disabled: I don`t know if this is glitch or is a result of an 
    impact between lasers and turret`s shield field, but it definitely works
    - with chaining your primary and secondary weapon ans well as linking firing 
    mounts for primary weapons or for secondary weapons, you can give your enemy 
    deadly strikes
    - it may sound barbaric, but ramming into others can be an effective 
    >> weapon << against others; but use this, if you are really in hurry to 
    destroy someone or the enemy is just a simple drone and make sure, you got your 
    shields recharged: there is no mild damage, such as in Wing Commander: Prophecy 
    - a few collides and you are dead (quite realistic)
    
    ------------------------- 
    
    Arena match:- before fighting, choose a ship, that you like the most and equip 
    it with weapons, that you master
                - conserve your ammo and make every shot count, if possible
                - operating like pirate will get your score high: wait in some 
    quiet and secret places and pick your enemies from afar or quickly vaporize 
    damaged and weak ships
                - you have probably seen some colored holograms in space: 
    that are power-ups:
                      - the green one, that looks like a ball, will restore some 
    shields energy  
                      - the yellow one will restore some afterburner power
                      - purely red, that looks like a cannon will restore some 
    weapons energy
                      - the blue one will repair some damaged hull
                      - red, that looks like a crate, will restore all sappers
                      - red with rocket look will restore all rockets
                      - red with whit sleek and missile look will restore all 
    missiles
                      - the red one, that is most sleek and looks like pipe will 
    restore Chatter Cannon ammo
                      - the green one, that has a look of nuclear warning sign will 
    restore partial energy to all three energy systems
                      - the red-orange one, star like hologram will restore all 
    energy systems to full
                - never fly out with guns blazing: you will be vaporized pretty 
    quick
                - always make judgement, what is better: power or stealth: the ship 
    that has a lot of weapons will kill a lot of other ones but will certainly make 
    attention and the one that is silent, will kill others with guided, long range 
    or otherwise weapons, one by one and will not make attention; however, both 
    ways have their pros and cons
    
    Base wars:- communicating with others, forming elements and developing strategy 
    with others can make your team very powerful
              - every crystal or kill is precious for base: the more powerplants, 
    the higher level and with it, better hardware and weapons
              - take note, that in higher levels, base defenses will begin to 
    function and you will get mines around the base for protection as well as 
    capital ships for support
              - the higher your rank, the better bonuses (i.e. better hull 
    strength, energy recharge rate etc.)
              - you gain more credits and experience by killing higher ranked 
    opponents; killing the lower ones will get you less credits and experience
              - when your base reaches level 10, the other team`s life support 
    generator will become vulnerable to Helios rockets

    $ When you accomplish all objectives in the Security Breach mission, fly to 
    Luna sector, wait and shoot down the shields of the light freighter Ontario, 
    when the shipyards control will request an emergency. You will get some money 
    for this.
    
    $ The New Zurich orbital station in Earth sector will accept all trading goods.
    
    * You will have your first cargo (trade goods) already in your possession. When

    easily, go to the landing pad, turn for 180 degree and fly in narrow way into 
    the asteroid field. The crate should appear in your radar as a green dot. It is 
    landed on one asteroid. Deliver it to the station in Earth sector and they will 
    pay you 200 Cr. Information about this cargo can also be found in TNS news.
    
    * The 3dh cargo is located in the centre of the station in Ganymede sector; to

    tower. There will be a crate with mining equipment.
    
    
    FRONTIER REGION:
    
    $ In the Dark Sector, there is a merchant ship of Arman Patrioli, that is 
    trading with illegal things. He will accept any kind of contrabands: from 
    illegal chemical compounds and weaponry systems to illegal narcotics.
    
    $ When flying Illicit Pickup mission, be sure that you pick up also the 
    contraband crate, that contains surveillance equipment and at the end of the 
    mission, EW Jammer will become  for you.

    pilot.
    
    $ Baron Malkar will accept all lost artwork on his station in Malkar`s Barony 
    sector.
    
    * In Onrald`s Barony, in the outer side of the junkyard, there are two crates: 
    one containing Illegal chemical compounds and the other Lost artwork.
    
    * When in Fury sector, get close to the base. Disable all turrets and look for 
    the other space hotel, in the lower section, where crafts are landing: there 
    will be a crate with Illegal narcotic.
    
    * Again, when you are in Fury sector, look for the first space hotel in it`s 
    rooftop. There will be 5 crates, landed on the rooftop, each containing 100 Cr.
    
    * Go to the Atlantic Casino and look for the farthest space hotel there. Fly 
    close to it and you will soon find a crate, containing 777 Cr. (slot machine 
    joke?!)
    
    * Go to the Venture station and proceed to the active landing pad on station. 
    Near it, you will find a crate of medical supplies. Available only to Bora.
    
    * Fly to Slave sector and directly under the base there. You will find a crate 
    with 13 Cr. there (is this another joke?).
    
    * When flying Illicit Pickup missin, when you arrive in Foothold sector, don`t 
    turn left right away. Instead, fly directly into the asteroid field, that is in 
    front of you. You will find a crate, containing mining equipment. Available 
    only to GalSpan.
    
    * In the Hajod Barony sector, fly to the lower and outer section of the station 
    and you will see a crate with lost artwork.
    
    
    TWILIGHT REGION:
    
    $ When flying The Sightseer mission, destroy as many Demons as you can, when 
    the luxury liner is near you and they will give you a bonus for spectacular 
    battle with Demons.
    
    * When you just start mission, fly immediately to the left and search for the 
    broken part of the base. You will also see a derelict cruiser. Get close to it 
    and in it`s wreckage, you will see a crate with 5000 Cr.
    
    * When on Silicon Hive sector, search every docking pad there. On one of them, 
    there will be a crate with spare parts.
    
    * When in Dusk sector, go to the centre of station and you will find a crate 
    containing illegal chemical compounds.

    RIPSTAR REGION:
    
    $ Cinder Station in Mercenary sector will accept any cargo with food supplies.
    Just dock on their upper and active docking pad.
    
    * In Mercenary sector, go to the centre of the base. Somewhere near the docking 
    pads, there will be a crate with illegal weaponry systems.
    
    * Again in Mercenary sector, fly to opposite end of the station and you will 
    find a crate of lost art work.
    
    * When you are in Draconis sector, go to the active landing pad on station and 
    the fly to the opposite landing pad, which is inactive. Fly about 6km in  
    direct line away from station and you will find a crate, containing 1000 Cr.
