|THE BROKEN JUMP GATE:|
Every race has two special ships - a Destroyer and a Carrier. The Destroyer shows up on the sector radar as a red symbol, something like an arrow in a box; the Carrier is a set of blue dots, also in
a box. (The Teladi Phoenix is the Teladi Destroyer.) Carriers carry LOTS of fighters.
Argon Destroyer tells you:
a. The jump gate to Earth is suspected to be somewhere in Xenon territory, and is broken.
|b. It is feared that the Xenons are preparing to attack, and we need to launch a pre-emptive strike|
|c. You have been selected to enter Xenon territory and find the jump gate (it looks like spacecraft debris).|
|d. It would be a good idea to contact all the races' Carriers and ask them to give you some help.|
|Your success in part (d.) will depend heavily on your reputation with that race. Might be a good idea to kill a few more Xenons in their territory until they really love you.|
|When you find the jump gate,
report back to Argon Destroyer.
(There's more, but I haven't gotten that far yet.
