LEVEL INFORMATION AND GOALS:

IT IS THE END OF THE EMPIRE, THE DEFEAT OF PALPATINE AND THE RETREAT OF THE IMPERIAL

FLEET HAS RESULTED IN A NEW GALACTIC GOVERNMENT,

THE NEW REPUBLIC!

ONE OF THE GOALS OF THIS REPUBLIC IS TO RID THE VERY ESSENCE OF THE EMPIRE FROM THE GALAXY;

BUT THEY HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO...VARIOUS ADMIRALS OF THE IMPERIAL FLEET HAVE PULLED BACK TO BYSS,

THE GALACTIC CORE, AND THE FINAL GOVERNMENTAL SEAT OF THE EMPIRE!

SEVERAL OF THE EMPEROR'S RULING CIRCLE, IN ADDITION TO SOME OF THE REMAINING GRAND

ADMIRALS, HAVE STARTED THE PRELIMINARY WORKINGS OF WAR...SENDING OUT SMUGGLER SHIPS TO: RESCUE

IMPERIAL PRISONERS, POSSIBLY CAPTURE SOME PRISONERS OF THEIR OWN, GAIN SUPPY LINES, AND GAIN

SUPPORT FROM IMPERIAL LOYALISTS.

ONE OF THE KEY SMUGGLER ROUTES USED BY THE REMNANTS OF THE EMPIRE IS THE ANOAT SYSTEM,

MAINLY BESPIN, AND CLOUD CITY!

IN TRANSIT TO ORD PARDRON'S NEW REPUBLIC DETENTION FACILITY, GENERAL CRIX MADINE AND

HIS CARGO, MOFF REBUS, ARE PULLED OUT OF HYPERSPACE IN THE ANOAT SYSTEM BY TWO IMPERIAL

INTERDICTORS, AND A VICTORY CLASS STAR DESTROYER.

MADINE AND REBUS ARE TAKEN, AND THE CREW OF THE SHUTTLE IS EXECUTED. TWO ESCORT B-WINGS

MANAGED TO BREAK FOR SAFETY AND HAVE RECENTLY ARRIVED ON CORUSCANT WITH NEWS OF THE HI-JACK.

WITH THE FLEET ENGAGED ACROSS THE GALAXY, THE NEW REPUBLIC CALLS ON THE SKILLS OF KYLE

KATARN AND JAN ORRS.

SENT TO RESCUE MADINE AND CAPTURE THE FUGITIVE MOFF, KYLE AND JAN MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE

NOW IMPERIAL AND SMUGGLER HELD CITY IN THE CLOUDS...JUST AS THE EMPIRE PREPARES MADINE FOR

CARBON-FREEZE.........

GOALS:

SECURE MOFF REBUS

RESCUE GENERAL MADINE

FIND INFORMATION ON SUPPLY LINES THROUGH CLOUD CITY

DEAL WITH ANY OPPOSITION

WARNING: AS JAN AND KYLE ENTER THE ANOAT SYSTEM, SO DOES SLAVE1...THE EMPIRE HAS FOUND OUT

ABOUT THIS MISSION, AND HAS SENT KYLE'S LONGTIME ENEMY TO DEAL WITH HIM....BUT BOBA FETT

KNOWS KATARN HAS DEFEATED HIM BEFORE, AND HAS BROUGHT ALONG SOME HELP.

GOOD LUCK AND MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU

final cut for 8 meg machines...and a new and improved .bat file if you want to use them

on a machine with more than 8.
