My scouts attack some Taiidan targets.
Note the exhaust trails which help you keep track of your ships as you zoom the view back. In this picture there are three Taiidan fighters. The two on the right are in different stages of destruction, the third had better start some radical evasive manoeuvers!
As your ships duke it out with the enemy, lasers splash off their shields,
and when they blow the whole screen lights up.
These Ion Cannon Frigates and their escorting Cloak Generators are attacking a Taiidan Missile Destroyer. What really hurts is that I captured all of these ships from the Taiidan previously.
MiGMan thanks P.C. for this guide.
