Ok..'I' cannot complet it. As I said, my crew dies. When I try to protect the gate opener guy, I get overwhelmed.
Well that's odd... because I did just fine solo myself. Drawing fire onto myself, use of abilities, and pounding away with weapon... the usual. Only 'dying' I did on the mission was with the spirits of Dishonor, Treachery and Cowardice (oh, and Fek'lhri himself), but still pulled through.
Maybe you should try again. See if this is a consistent bug, or just a one-time thing
