I figured it out once but then forgot how. If I have time I'll see about doing a little experimentation to work it out again. I know there's a way to input manual coordinates even if the computer is w ...

Further tips:

Mongol battlecruisers can fire plasma bolts too, not just commanders. Beware.

But this happens even if I arrive late into the quad. I thought maybe StarBases will sacrifice themselves to save the Lexington. But what you say does explain why I've never seen a base destroyed righ ...

#1 -- definitely a bug.

#3 -- I warp hop to the next quadrant and back when I get plasma torpedoes fired at me. If you move away (from the Mongol who fired it) the damage will be reduced, but if yo ...
