Wing Commander Prophecy: Hellespont and Alcor Systems


Hellespont 048.7 – Callisto Defence

Briefing
Drake: Gentlemen. Let’s get started, shall we? Check your ICIS for the mission objectives.
ICIS: The Midway is the last line of defence between the newly-strengthened alien attack force and a series of quick jumps directly into the Sol system. We will attempt to set up a blockade to stop a formidable enemy bomber force which is approaching at speed. Because we have insufficient time and vessels to evacuate Callisto Space Station, our blockade must centre around them. Should we fail, the station’s entire population will be in alien hands. Alpha Wing will intercept the first waves of inbound hostiles. If our defensive line breaks down, the Midway will signal the retreat and pull back to the Alcor system, where we will regroup and attempt to stop enemy forces if they attempt to enter through the Hellespont jump point. Any pilots who do not immediately return to the Midway after the retreat is called will be left behind.
Drake: Very well, get to it. And be careful out there. Dismissed.

Fly Hellespont 048.7
Anderson: There are thousands of civilian lives depending on you, Lieutenant.
Maestro: There they are! Let’s take it to ’em!
Callisto: We’re certainly glad to see you, sir, but I hope there’s more help on the way.
Stiletto: You and Maestro take out the bombers, Casey. Alpha Four and I will keep those fighters off your back.
Success:
Callisto: That was incredible! We owe you folks our lives!
We’ll send each of you a case of our finest Goddard Reserve.
Anderson: Callisto Station sends their thanks, Lieutenant. All other positions are also reporting success. Looks like we’ll be back on the offensive pretty soon here. I knew you could do it! The deck’s clear for you.
Failure:
Callisto: Hull integrity weakening! We can’t… AAAAAaaaaaahhh! <static>
Anderson: All pilots return to base. Our position has been compromised! All pilots return to base for immediate evac.
Anderson: All our positions are being overrun, Lieutenant. It doesn’t look good for our side. Hopefully we can make a last stand at Proxima. You’re clear.

Hellespont 049.6 – Jump Point Standoff

Briefing
Drake: All right. The rest of you, please be seated. We have a lot of work to do. Here are your objectives.
ICIS: The first alien starships have arrived here in the Hellespont system. Before we lost contact with our SWACS patrol, we learned that an enemy ship killer may be nearing the Hellespont jump point in T’lan Meth. An advance force containing an alien cruiser has already entered this system. Your Alpha Wing will be assigned to take out the defences of the cruiser group so a wing of bombers can destroy the ship. If the cruiser breaks past our defences, the Midway will signal the retreat and pull back to the Alcor system, where we will regroup and attempt to stop the aliens if they attempt to enter through the Hellespont jump point.
Drake: Understood? Dismissed.
Tigershark Launch
Fly Hellespont 049.6
Anderson: This is it, people. If we don’t handle these creeps here, there won’t be anyone left to attend our funerals.
Success:
Anderson: That was beautiful! I love it when you guys work as a team! You’re cleared.
Failure:
Anderson: All pilots return to base. Your mission is a failure.
That’s not good, Lieutenant. One more performance like that and we’ll be out of business. We’re retreating to Proxima right after you land.

Alcor 050.1 – Last Stand at Alcor

Briefing
Drake: Please come in and get seated. All right then. Let’s go over your mission objectives.
ICIS: The alien fleet has pursued the Midway through the jump point and is advancing at full speed. There is no retreat. Failure means death. Lieutenant Casey, you will lead Alpha Wing against the fighter cover, while Maniac will lead Bravo Wing’s strike on the starships. When you have cleared the area, return to the Midway.
Drake: This won’t be an easy mission for any of you. But we have a job to do. So let’s do it. Dismissed.
Wasp Launch
Fly Alcor 050.1
Anderson: This is it, people. If we don’t handle these creeps here, there won’t be anyone left to attend our funerals.
Anderson: Lieutenant, hold your position! We’re sending in a wing of Shrikes. Cover them while they do their thing.
Success:
Anderson: Wow! You really are a hero now, Casey! That was close… too close.
All enemy capital ships destroyed: T’lan Meth System
Failure:
Anderson: This is TCS Midway. All pilots are ordered to get clear of this sector at once. If you survive, report news of this encounter to Confed HQ. That is all.
See you in hell, you bastards! AAAAAAaaaaahhh!
One or more enemy capital ships active: Midway destroyed
