Well, I'm not going for the 1'000 Nausicaans kill counter, only for the 100 one. However, I'd like to destroy 200 ships in space at least to get the maximum there. How did you get the ships accolade? Also in clusters?
I'll probably do another restart of my main char anytime soon and then I'll just get the mission almost done, then drop it and do it again etc. until I have the Nausicaan ship and troops accolade, same with Orions. I also missed some story accolades on Azura and another early Lieutenant ground mission.
