Welcome back to this entry of Independence War my friends! In the first mission for this entry, entitled “Routine Patrol,” it’s anything but. We not only find a damaged ship on the brink of exploding, but some sneaky indies. Those devils. We take ’em down, but not before they damage my wingman and kill her captain. Bastards. No time for grief though, as “A New Force” has me shuttling a fleet admiral to a secret test of a new weapon. The test goes well, but is sighted by the indies. I fail to take out the spy ship, which I hated doing, but it felt like the right thing to do. I will likely go back and do it again off camera to get it right. I hope.
