Strategy[edit | edit source]

This is a mission with lots of enemies. All you have to do is send a fighter or corvette to the relay. Send something to it and you will notice the area is defended extremely well.

There are two ways to complete this mission:

Plan A:[edit | edit source]

Take your battle group and a gravity well generator (if you didn't capture any in the previous mission, build one). Now send the Generator forward into the graveyard. It will likely be attacked by some Autoguns so have your Support Frigates heal it. Shortly after it enters the shipyard, the Junkyard Dog will appear.

This powerful version of a salvage corvette can easily steal a capital ship, even a heavy cruiser, and transport it to the nearest hyperspace gate. The captured ship will then become an enemy, which can be an additional troublesome to this mission. However, you can still recapture it using salvage corvettes. The Junkyard Dog is a corvette, but needs to be stunned to be destroyed. That's where the Gravwell comes in. Tell it to attack the dog and then activate it's gravity well. Use your battle group to take the dog out while it is pinned down by the Generator. The dog has a lot of health, so take it out with everything you have. After a while, it will be destroyed, so retire your generator as it won't be of any use, then send the battle group onwards through the shipyard, destroying any Proxy Sensors and Autoguns they meet.

Once a pathway has been made, build either an Interceptor or Light Corvette, then send it to the "ping" on the sensors manager. When it docks with the Junkyard Office, the mission ends and you can hyperspace to the longest level in the game.

Plan B:[edit | edit source]

The easiest thing you can do is simply build an Interceptor or Light Corvette and send it above the wreckage and along to the Office. Beware because the enemy does have some defenses near the final objective.
