# 1 Don't use shuttle...

Take a runabout or Delta Flyer.

The shuttle is neat and all, but it cracks like an egg. You will have to fight some and the shuttle is weak (I was destroyed by fighters twice, and I had Aegis gear on it as well as purple MKX weapons). I'll have to wait until I run through with my alt to see how well the runabout works. But even your BOff says, "This would be easier with a runabout or Delta Flyer."

So, when you are able to get on the server, that is my suggestion.

Last time I checked (before this stuff went live) the Type-8 didn't have any BOff stations. So yeah, I can imagine that even the runabout would be a much better choice than the Type-8.

Don't forget to manage your power allocation as well. In a shuttle, you don't have any BOff skills and you aren't likely to be able to break through a cloak, so there's no need for auxiliary power -- boost that to your shields and weapons instead! And don't try to take on too many fighters at once.
Also, if you happen to run into, say, some sort of environmental hazard, that could hit fighters just as much as it could hurt you . . .

To be fair - we fully tested the mission in the Type-8/Toron shuttles with default gear and no consoles and were able to complete the mission by going slow and being cautious not to agro too many things at once. In all cases - it is highly advised to avoid the Mogai in ANY kind of shuttle... it is much more powerful than you.

Yeah. I just tried to run and found myself surrounded by fighters. I then took them out one at a time. But when it came to the Mogai, I just ran as fast as I could.

Pro-tip:
The objective telling you to escape.

Well, that just means travel - not necessarily shooting anyone.
