Your Friend, Sabre, Called

Alignment Mission

One of your contacts in the Feds, code named Sabre, called you today about the individuals you snapped photos of last week outside the club with Captain Anderson. Anderson is the redeemed Sky Raider Captain who is working with Longbow against his old Sky Raider pals. You taped the phone call from Sabre, and this is what he or she had to say:

This is Sabre. Received the ginger-snaps. They're real crisp. They were so good that they reminded me of some old friends; James Weller and Carlos Santiago. Lost touch with them after the Rikti War. Like they disappeared into the sky. As far as I know, they're still up there. I can't share my treats with them, but I think they're working on finding some treats of their own. Send me some more treats later.

You cut through all the double speak and get to the meat of Sabre's message. Captain Anderson is talking to some of his old pals in the Sky Raiders, Lieutenant Weller and Sergeant Santiago. It sounds like the three of them are plotting a job on the down low. Not exactly the behavior you expect for a redeemed man. Especially for one who is working with Longbow to try and take down some of his old comrades. If Santiago and Weller are talking with Anderson, then it's likely that the big operation Anderson is conducting with Longbow is actually a trap!

VILLAIN: Prove Anderson is a double agent to Longbow


For the past few weeks, Captain Anderson has been hard at work redeeming himself, even teaming up with Longbow to take his old unit down. It all seemed a bit too good to be true, given his past in the Sky Raiders, so you started doing surveillance on him. You snapped a few pictures of Anderson meeting some people outside of a night club a few days ago. You sent copies of the photos to Sabre, your contact in the Feds, and after a few days received confirmation of your suspicions. Anderson is meeting his old Sky Raider buddies incognito. He's acting as a double agent!

  • Prove Captain Anderson's guilt to Longbow.

Longbow is currently underway on an offensive operation to take down some of the Sky Raiders, using Anderson's intel. It's obviously a trap. You need to get in touch with the Longbow Field Commander and warn him of Anderson's treachery. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to use extreme measures to convince Longbow that Anderson can't be trusted.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Find the Longbow Field Commander and show him the evidence you have against Anderson. If he refuses to pull his men back then you will just have to kill the commander and blame it on Anderson. At least the other Longbow agents will survive, despite their commander's ignorance. You hope it doesn't come to that.

Mission Objective(s)

You listen to the orders being issued over the Longbow operational channel. It looks like the operation has already begun. You can only hope they will listen to you.

  • Prove Captain Anderson's guilt
    • Find the Field Commander
    • Defeat the Field Commander
    • Find Overdrive
    • Speak to Overdrive
    • Defeat Captain Anderson, Withstand the Sky Raider counter attack!

You rescued Overdrive from Captain Anderson's trap, though it cost the life of a senior Longbow commander, it saved the lives of dozens of Longbow personnel. You did what had to be done.

Field Commander Shattuck
You and Field Commander Shattuck could not come to an agreement concerning Captain Anderson's traitorous actions. You resorted to killing him so that you could pin the murder on Anderson in order to convince Overdrive that Anderson was a traitor.

Captain Anderson's deceit and lies were finally exposed. Too bad it had to cost the life of one of Longbow's senior commanders. Better for one soldier to die than an entire squadron.
