Perfect that is exactly what I did! Instead of autopiloting ahead I afterburned to my highest speed & autoglided ahead to the next waypoint...sure I was up to my butt in furballs but the Armageddon fleet never got a scratch-me on the other hand...well, let's just say it wasn't pretty.

I'm beating this mission for only one reason:
When they said "The Galahads will fly ahead to clear a path" or somesuch, I decided that rather than hit the Autopilot function, I'd actually do that. I kicked afterburner, toggled autoglide, and flew to navpoint 1 ON MY OWN because those STUPID effing spacebarns have ZERO capacity to defend themselves from the goddamn torpedos.
So I get there, and lo and behold, the cats were waiting for the ambush JUST as we all expected--and yet, who would have GUESSED that I was the only effing pilot who reacted appropriately by ruining their surprise premature!! WELL THEN! Once I aggroed those worthless furballs, the other pilots finally get the lead out and afterburn their way over while I single-handedly BATHE THE STARS IN CAT BLOOD.
Not a single bomber got through. Now I'm on to navpoint two. Do you think I'm gonna autopilot my way there?
Fat Chance, pussycat, I'm taking you to the vet for the LAST TIME.
Do not, for the love of GOD, ruin this mission by trying to 'fix' it >_<;
