Revenge of Snathie campaign: Fleeting up with Guardian ships

Posted on Wednesday, September 19, 2018

In the revenge of the Snathie scenario, one thing that made it hard was that the destruction of the survey ship would cause the game to be lost.

I noticed that if I head for an anomaly with my survey ship under which a Prison Guardian ship is hiding, that I am able to fleet up with the Prison Guardian Ship.   From then on, I can no longer control my survey Ship, but it is no longer attacked by the Prison Guardian ships, and this removes a vulnerability the Snathie have in this campaign.

Later on in the game, I am able to attack this fleet of a Guardian Ship and my Survey ship and destroy it without consequence.  

I don't know if it was planned that way, but this small flaw enabled me to beat the campaign scenario twice already.
