Guide[edit]

The first part is really straight forward, use the abilities they introduce to you. And take out all enemies. When the second part start you should follow the left side and take all the minerals that you can jump to leveling up makes you much stronger. The rest of the mission is quite easy, there is two parts where you want to deviate from the path. When the Hyperion crew talks about the pirate ship, it gives you an ability to stun other ships that are close to you. The other time is the second time you warp in a station you want to go to the left and pickup that mineral cluster as well so that you can reach max level. The final boss shoots mag mines at you. Jump out of their way and you shouldn't have any problems with it.
