|Location:||In orbit around a Hegemony mining outpost in the Itos system|
|A Hegemony mining outpost in the Itos system is blockaded by their bitter enemies, the Tri-Tachyon Corporation. Most of the Hegemony fleet is engaged elsewhere - which is precisely the reason for the blockade. The outpost's ground defenses are strong, but they are running low on supplies, and may be forced to surrender soon.
The local Hegemony magistrate has scraped together a rag-tag fleet carrying supplies and fresh ground troops, and secured the services of the mercenary ISS Black Star. If enough ships can get through the blockade, the outpost will hold out until reinforcements arrive.
|- ISS Black Star must survive - At least 25% of the Hegemony forces must escape|
|Name:||ISS Black Star|
