[B6M5] Battle 6 - Mission 5: Steal imperial shuttle

Here we can have in-depth discussions about which missions need to be adjusted because they are broken either by original design or by XWA models.

I have the problem when i found the shuttle inside the station i doch with the shuttle and then nothing happens.
I can wait and wait.
When i pick up the shuttle and start with teh shuttle connected with my ship the ties will destroy the shuttle on my way to the nav point. :?

You’re supposed to dock with the station, not with the shuttle.

Yes, fly inside and dock with the station after you IDed the shuttle. Then suffer through the loooong dialogue and hope you'll be able to defend it on it's way out. Be sure to keep an eye out on the T/Bs. And don't forget the reinforcements.

The star destroyer counts as an inspection target for inspecting the shuttles. Might be worth tweaking that as it makes no logical sense.

I think one of the neutral craft in the outpost area will trip off the ID scan objective should you veer left to not get hit by Karrade's ship.

There's a fair bit of poor user feedback in this mission, the biggest is the docking segment, as mentioned above. Googling the mission reveals this is a long-standing issue well before the XWAU pack. Perhaps some change to the objective summary text - "dock and wait for the commandos to board"

I'd forgotten the call reinforcements button so perhaps a tweak to the mission text to add (shift-S) as a reminder.

There's an alternative tactic of picking up the shuttle and flying it out, but that means you have to swing back to re-dock with the station to complete the docking objective. Perhaps place an override for the objectives if that's the case?
