The Fondor Escort is very simple. The shuttle you have to guard is at a medium distance from you. It constantly take laser blasts from fighters, frigates and capital ships. Fighters are the biggest threat. Forgive me if I am not 100% correct, doing this from memory

Main Objective:
Protect the shuttle until it reaches safety.

Bonus Objective:
Destroy 25 fighters

Strategy:

Your ship follows the same basic course as the shuttle. It likes to fly really close to frigates and big cap. ships. Use missiles if you have them on rows of turrets on the big capital ships for a boost of quick XP. you get 20XP per turret on a Cruiser, and they have about 30 of them in groups of 4 or 8. That was the main XP gain for me in this mission as with missiles and lasers you can clean a Cruiser out pretty quick. Use lasers to kill fighters, should only take 3-4 shots. About half way through you start getting groups coming up behind you, this is the most difficult part of the mission as they blast right past you and go after the shuttle. Stay focused and pay a bit of attention and the shuttle should never drop past half health.

Enjoy!

Seeing as the NDA is lifted, I thought I would spread a little info.

Space Battle basics:

1. The ship flys the basic course on its own. You have to avoid big rocks, ships, and ice chunks.
2. You control 2 different weapons, Lasers and Missiles. Lasers are quick firing, light damage. Missiles have a reload time, but can fire salvos and do lots of damage.
3. Fighters are everywhere and seem to form some part of the bonus objectives in space battles. Shoot them down for easy XP!
4. Save missiles for tough objectives. You have a limited supply, so use them with care!
5. If you don't have objectives to complete, shoot EVERYTHING. Turrets/engines/shield generators on little ships are worth 5XP and go down fast. On big ships they are worth 20XP!
6. They seem to be a daily type of mission. You can do them twice the first day, then once each following day. Easy way to earn XP, credits, and tokens for upgrades/item cases/credits.

There is also an additional 'hidden' bonus mission to destroy the bridge on the capital ship. Since that can't really be done without a proton torpedo launcher (which you can't get until high level) you would need to come back and do this mission later if you want to do that objective.

There is one other "bonus" mission, I believe its called "Take out the enemy fleet" you have to destroy 20 capital ship turrets, don't know how many xp it rewards.

Impossible 7:55 5 com. daily = 15 com. 7848 cred

it's important to note these are all the available bonus missions when going back at level 50 and many require torpedoes. while leveling up pre-50 most of these space missions only have the first bonus available. with about 73 minutes of work a day... a sharp eye and the torpedo upgrade, you can make 118,338 credits and 100 commendations.
