|Location:||Inside the Coral Nebula|
|A Tri-Tachyon fleet commander is playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a large Hegemony fleet searching for the Tri-Tachyon headquarters. She is able to convince the enemy admiral that the headquarters are located deep inside the Coral Nebula, leading him to commit all of his forces to an attack.
Although the Hegemony fleet has much greater firepower, most craft are large and greatly slowed by the nebula, and the Tri-Tachyon advantage in fighter craft should be telling.
|- Using your torpedo bombers is key to victory
- Keep the Astral carrier on the field to repair and rearm them- Defeat all enemy forces
|Order of Battle|
|Tri-Tachyon task force||Elements of the 3rd Hegemony armada|
The important thing to remember about the Astral is: you are not a battleship. You won't do well going toe to toe with the Dominators, let alone the Onslaught. Stay at a distance and use your missiles, leaving the close-in work to the bombers.
Although the mission is described as taking place deep inside a nebula, depending on the random generation the actual fighting may take place in a patch of open space. There are six capturables, three on each side of the map: one Nav Buoy, one Comm Relay and one Sensor Array.
