This is an asteroid-based Build & Destroy scenario. Your starting location doesn't have many resources, so you will eventually be forced to fan out to further locations to gather.

Aside from this, there isn't much to it that couldn't be accomplished by just playing a Random Map on similar terrain. Not bad, but not outstanding.

Balance: 2
Given the story, I expected to face pretty significant enemy resistance. Sadly, I was let down by this. While the Empire starts with a basic skeleton of a base, and a larger stockpile of resources, they are technically on equal footing as the player, who begins only with Luke and a single Worker.

By the time I advanced to Tech Level 3, I discovered that the enemy had absolutely no air defenses, and had in fact just reached Tech Level 2. After some harassment with Airspeeders, they were forced to resign before I could even locate the artifact mentioned in the scenario's plot.

It certainly tries, as evidenced by the story. But there just isn't enough on the gameplay side that separates it from a typical skirmish game.
==========

Map Design: 2
The asteroids mainly consists of flat rock terrain walled by Carbon Rocks, and the occasional deposit of Nova and Ore. The Imperial base is a series of metal platforms bordered by light walls. It's sufficient for gameplay, but not very nice to look at.
==========

Story/Instructions: 4
There's no doubt that the author put some work into fleshing out the plot of this. It unfortunately led me to have rather high expectations of the scenario when I began playing. It's easy to read, and there are no obvious questions as to what you need to do. However, the overall lack of real challenge and the simplicity of the map knock this down down a peg.
==========

Additional Comments:
A very interesting plot marred by less-than-stellar gameplay and no real challenge. Not terrible, just disappointing given the expectations put forth by the plot.
