Station Z-129C
 
    A Rebel raiding party has just entered the system. Presently, the Strike-class Cruiser Pulverizer has yet to complete its repairs and is not completely operational. Its shields and hyperdrive are still offline and its engines are only capable of 2 space units (due to damage). And only 16 of its turbolasers, 4 of its ion cannons and 1 of its tractor beams are operational. Station Commander, you must ensure that the Strike Cruiser Pulverizer is not captured or destroyed. All Imperial Forces in the local area are under your command. Your available fighter forces are 3 TIE Fighter Squadrons and 5 TIE Interceptors (from the Strike Cruiser). The Rebel raiding party consists of 2 X-Wing, 1 Y-Wing and 1 B-Wing Squadrons and 4 ATRs.
Note that no reinforcements are available. None of the Imperial fighters are equipped with warheads. The X-Wings, Y-Wings, B-Wings and ATRs are only equipped with 4 Proton Torpedoes each.

Correct Response Number 1
     First the Strike Cruiser would move directly behind the platform so it can use to platforms shields to protect it and add it's firepower to the platforms.  T/I Gamma 1-5 would proceed to Grid B1 and engage in B-Wings to keep them away from the Pulverizer. T/F group Alpha Beta & Ceta would attack X-Wings Gold and Red untill they were destroyed.  Once the T/I's with their superior manuverability and speed have destroyed the B-Wings they would move on to the Y-Wings and make short work of the slow and sluggish wishbones.  Once T/I group Gamma had destroyed all the bombers and fighter/bombers they would assist the Tie Fighters with the destruction of the X-Wings.  Once all the rebel fighters had been destroyed my remianing TIE's which would probably be around 12 to 18 Tie Fighters and 3 to 4 Tie Interceptors would fly back to the Platform at top speed.  Once the Tie's arrived they would wait to pick off as many incomming missiles as possiable fired by the rebel ATRs.  Once within range of Turbolasers the Platform would concentrait it's firepower on Storm 1 and 2 while the Pulverizer would concentrait it's firepower on Storm 3 and 4.  The Tie's would stay out of firing range of the deadly ATRs untill they were destroyed, surrendered, or attempted to flee.  If the ATRs attempted to escape the Tie's would engage and destroy the ATRs.

Correct Response Number 2
At the opening of the battle begin moving the Strike Cruiser behind the XQ1 platform. Launch all TIE Fighters and Interceptors. Have all of the TIE Fighters go after the 2 X-wing Squadrons. Once they are dont with them send them after the Y-wing Squadron. Meanwhile have your 5 TIE Interceptors chew on the B-wing Squadron. If they get done early enough send them after the emaining X-wings. For the Y-wings lack of speed thy should not even be in range yet. Have the remaining TIEs wipe them out. Pull back all remaining TIEs to the platform. When the ATRs get in range to fire their torpedoes have remaining Interceptors go after the torpedoes. If the Interceptors are already destroyed send 6 TIE Fighters. Once in range of the platform have it open fire on the ATRs and only once the platform has engaged move the cruiser into range for additional support along with having all remaining TIEs engage.

    Immediately launch all remaining fighters. Order the Strike Cruiser Pulverizer to move behind the XQ1 Platform to use it as a reprieve against the Rebel ATRs. This will also allow the Strike Cruiser and the XQ1 Platform to combine their firepower. All of the Imperial fighters would allow the Rebel fighters to come to them, so that they enjoy the fire support provided by the warship/platform combination (and to help break up the Rebel formations). Once the Rebel fighters arrive, the TIE Interceptors would concentrate their efforts against the Y-Wings. Two of the TIE Fighter Squadrons would attack both the X-Wing Squadrons to keep them busy. While 9 TIE Fighters from the last TIE Fighter Squadron would engage the B-Wings; the remaining 3 TIE Fighters would assist the TIE Interceptors to quickly eliminate the Y-Wings. The Strike Cruiser would use its sole remaining tractor beam against the ATRs. Once an ATR is caught in it, the Pulverizer would concentrate all available weapons to quickly destroy it. As soon as the TIEs had engaged the Rebel fighters, the platform would then concentrate its fire on the Rebel ATRs. Once the Y-Wings had been eliminated, those Imperial fighters that had engaged them would assist in taking out the B-Wings. Once the B-Wings had eliminated, half of the remaining TIEs would move to assist against the X-Wings, while the other remaining TIEs would move against the ATRs with the duties of harassing them. It would not be long until the Rebel raiding party would be defeated, to either be forced into retreat or destroyed.
