Tie Defender Base

Background from Jan Ors:

Rebel spies have located the base where research and development is being done on the Empire's newest starfighter, the TIE Defender. This development effort is being led by Admiral Thrawn, who is reporting directly to the Emperor. Initial analysis indicates that this new weapon can outrun and outgun any starfighter in the Rebel arsenal. The Rebel Alliance needs more data on this craft and we need to shut down its testing facility. This is where you come in, Kyle.

The Mission:

The base is located in a mountainous area on a small moon in the Parmel system. Imperial test pilots use a nearby ravine for practice runs before entering orbit. The entrance to the base itself is thought to be somewhere in the ravine.

You must find the entrance to the facility and plant a sequencer charge in its main reactor room. At the main reactor, there is an exchange coupling that leads to the central power grid. Place a sequencer charge in this coupling and the facility will explode.

After you've planted the charge, you must find a data tape that contains all of the technical specifications and flight test data on the TIE Defender prototypes. These will be an invaluable aid to Admiral Ackbar's staff in determining the best way to counter this awesome new threat. I'll be in radio contact with you, but once I drop you off, you'll be on your own. To get out, you'll need to hijack a TIE Defender. You will be heavily outnumbered and outgunned here, Kyle. Rely on your quickness always keep moving! This is bound to be your most difficult mission! Reports indicate that the base is guarded by a full platoon of Dark Troopers. Also, there is another secret Imperial weapon under development here - a new type of Probe Droid called the Hunter-Killer Droid. Watch out!

Mission objectives:

- Infiltrate the TIE Defender base.

- Plant a sequencer charge in the facility's main reactor room.

- Recover the data tape containing the TIE Defender tech specs and flight test

data.

- Escape in a hijacked TIE Defender.

Look out for: The Tie Defender making practice runs.

Challenge: Get to the tower where the sequencer charge is to be placed!

Secret: A massive subterranean maze, in the computer room.
