OK so first of all, the obligatory OMG THIS GAME IS SICK. I'm in awe of you guys for creating it.
Secondly, OMG this game is challenging. I remember the original WCs being pretty tough sometimes, but... like this?
Thirdly, my first specific question, concerning the Vega 4 mission. How on earth am I supposed to (a) stop all the antimatter missiles hitting the Vega colony planet AND (b) still have enough afterburner (not to mention shields) to catch all the Kilrathi dropships at the next navpoint? At a certain point, the dropships are going faster than my top speed and I have no fuel left for ABs. And this ship doesn't glide, apparently. Any tips?

Hmm, I don't think you actually need to stop all the missiles, those that slip through your fingers get shot down by a second line of defence ot something. I'd say : don't bother chasing the missiles too far away, and keep at least some AB fuel for the last nav point.
