X-Wing Alliance Strategy Guide
Score: 1081 Bonus: 0
Members of Denari's staff have fled in a Shuttle from the Hurrin forces.  Your A-Wings need to repel the squadron of Hurrin fighters before they can destroy it.

Strategy:

 

Nothing new about this mission.  Save the shuttle to a preset and get ready for a massive engagement of fighters.

Since nearly the entire group emerging from hyperspace will attack the shuttle, you need to spread fire, attack targets that are in your line of sight but not-necessarily your CMD, and fire twin concussion missiles into crowds of fighters when they are pursuing the shuttle. 

Despite the odds, most decent dogfighters should be able to get the Shuttle to safety with relative ease.  Just be sure to follow it into hyperspace - it stops short of the destination in order to stop a homing device.  This in turn gives the Hurrin one last chance, but its a pretty pathetic one.  Concentrate all firepower on the muurian transport, and the rest of the fighters will ignore the shuttle!
