When I reach the point that I can do the other missions, I’ll post those as well.

BASIC CONTROLS:

Movement: You move the ship around by moving the mouse around. The ship ‘glides’ in the direction of the mouse point, so you have to be careful about your movement when around collision obstacles.

Blasters: Just left click and hold to fire your blasters. The speed of your blaster fire is dependent mostly upon your ship’s Beam Generator while the damage of the blasters is affected by the Beam Charger.

Missiles: Right click to fire of your missiles. You have can 4 loaded at a time and the number next to the loaded missiles is how many more you still have left in the bay, which means you have that number plus the number of currently loaded missiles. You can increase the number of missiles your ship can hold by using a Missile Magazine. One of the nice thing about missiles is that they do lots of damage and they don’t take away from the recharging of your shields. When firing with missiles, if you hold down the right mouse button you can mouse over 4 targets and when you release the button you will simultaneously fire all 4 missiles.

Barrel Roll: This simple maneuver is done by hitting the [SPACE] bar. Keep in mind it can only be used so fast and is most effective when you also move your mouse to a different part of the screen. Doing this can help reduce the damage you take. Items such as an Energy Shield and a Shield Regenerator can help reduce the damage you take as well, while Ship Armor increases the total HP of your ship. If these items aren’t very high you’ll need to use tricky flying and barrel rolls to limit the damage you do take on those harder missions.

You’ll receive a quest for each space mission the first time you do them and then they’ll be lumped into dailies afterwards. Just go to the bridge of your ship and grab those quests to earn some extra exp and credits. I recommend letting people know you’re about to do them if you’re engaging in conversation because you lose the chat window while in space (nobody can hear you scream) and it’s easy for messages to get buried in exp spam if you use the general settings for your chat tab.

Tips:

Upgrade your ship. If you try to do these missions without any upgrades you’re going to have a rough time. Grade 1 (hence why I call the missions grade 1) upgrades are recommended and can be purchased from the Starship Upgrade NPC on almost every planet.

Don’t lead the target. This isn’t like most space games where you have to predict the trajectory of your foe. Just hover the cursor over the target and fire a few shots and then move on. I like to RP that the ship’s computer does the calculations for the lasers to hit their intended targets.

Stop firing. If you’re taking damage to your shield, the only way to let them regen is to stop firing your blasters. That means take caution with your targets and take them down quickly OR you can use missiles. If you know you’ve got a few to spare and need the extra protection, take down a few fliers with a missile.

Barrel Roll. Ships flying at you shoot at you and do decent damage. While it’s ideal to take them out before they can get shots off at you (like when ships are flying away; kill them before they turn around and dive bomb you) it’s not always possible. Hitting the [SPACE] bar will let you do a barrel roll which helps with dodging those blasters; just be careful where you roll. Some missions have collision areas (Archenar Interception) and the roll can smack your ship into an asteroid. Also; don’t do your barrel rolls after you’ve been hit (like I did a few times in the videos)

Hidden Objectives There are a couple of objectives that reward decent exp that aren’t displayed in the mission tracker. In the Balosar Outpost you can destroy the com relay under the station and you can destroy the bridge of the massive capital ship in the Makem Te Assault mission. Be careful when going after these because you might spend too much time, and too many missiles, trying to take them down.

Hidden Space Bonus Missions Guide by DarthDemens

Important Facts:
1) I play Imperial side, so the mission names are Imperial names. I assume the bonuses are equivalent for the Republic, and only have different names.
2) For Empire, Frigate = Corvette, and Capital Ship = the larger, oval shaped one.
3) The Daily bonuses can only be completed using Missiles/Torpedoes. And they take a lot of missiles, about 20 for the communication spikes, about 30 for the Capital ship bridges.
4) Some of the bonuses seem to require that you be a particular level to earn them. So while you unlock Skaross at level 34, you cannot get the Fighter bonus until level 38.
5) Objectives in yellow are Daily Bonuses, and can only be completed once per day by each character.

Thanks to emidas for supplying the Republic side names.

  1. Cartell listening station destroy the sattalights or how ever u spell it

  2. Drexel Sweep, as of today, I check the log, after I blow the command center, I got about 680ish legacy xp but I didn't get any credits. Not sure its a bug or they nerf it.

  3. For the Fondor Escort, the last capital ship, I don't even see the bridge, how can the republic side kill the bridge without seeing it? Will one EMP blast enough to kill it? When is the best place to trigger it?

  4. To me TOR space fighting is about the lamest form of game space play that I've encountered since the early 80's. Also, just like the space fighting, the rest of TOR game play is minimalistic. For example, the UI–in this day and age we're not provided the capability of moving interface objects around!!!
