Your sister has discovered a method to track down the location of the mercenary group working with the Sullustans.  She needs you to pilot the Otana while she finds the data.

Strategy:

 

Its a pretty simple shoot-and-survive mission.  Good gunnery skills will keep you alive.

There isn't much else to do besides board the mission craft early on.  As is usually the case, you need to bring shields to full recharge, and man the top (first) gun turret.  The mercenary fighters will tend to attack from the side extremes of the port, so simply line yourself up, fire blindly, and use the r button to keep tabs on who intends to fire at you.

When Emkay lands you in an Imperial target yard, dump lasers, use auto target, and try to outmaneuver the enemy fighters until a new hyperspace buoy arrives.  There are no bonuses for mopping up the fleet.

The second boarding operation (with the platform) ends up with the same situation as before - fighters come to attack.  Luckily the IRDs are pretty fragile, so you should be able to get in some good kills.

From there, the mission is smooth sailing.  Deal with the Starfighters and head home.  Mission results are dealt with immediately in Mission 3: Raid Mercenary Base.
