Part 21: Asajj Ventress and the Storm over Ryloth
STORM OVER RYLOTH
As ordered by Ventress, vile Separatist leader Wat Tambor has invaded the Twi'lek home world of Ryloth. While his droid army plunders the planet of its treasure, his fleet of ships have formed a blockade in orbit around Ryloth to prevent any relief getting to the starving civilians.
The Republic responded by sending Admiral Yularen with Jedi Generals Kenobi and Skywalker to break the blockade and defeat Tambor. . .
Taking out the Battleships
-- Opening Act --
The opening CS shows the fleet arriving over the planet and being attacked, but still able to launch a ground offensive as it one Battleship goes down in flames.
You take control of Anakin's fighter as it approaches the worst of the blockade, -- you can use the booster engines to get past the clustered gun platform fire and to the upper part of the battlefield but you really should not as that is not where your supposed to go... If you did just find another set of boosters and go back down -- that is what they do, sort of serve as a switch to take you to the different areas.
-- Right Rear Pad --
The first pad we land on is the one on the right side towards the back, where we cut open the wall at the Jedi Spot and plug the power cable into the slot we revealed doing that. This causes the nearby hatch to open, and we go inside!
Inside we find the turret controls for the right side of the ship and, using them, take out the three white turrets on the ship across from us, thereby destroying it! Good for us!
Now head back outside and get in your fighter and take off!
-- Left Rear Pad --
Land on the pad on the other side and basically do exactly what we just did, but over here, but this time assemble the switch, then throw it and plug in the cable to open the door -- the rest is the same. We get a nice CS of the ship exploding this time too!
When you are done get back in your ship and take off!
Use the booster to head up to the top side and land above the Bridge, then run down the ramp through the hole in the top and pull the switch to engage the drive system to move the ship -- this results in two new enemy coming in along side, so go back out and boost down and use the turrets on each side to disable the new enemy ships!
Once you have done that head back out and fly to the front of the ship, landing on the pad towards the front of the ship on its right side top, you immediately come under attack by enemy forces -- and while you are here and it being convenient and all, as there is a never ending supply of Battle Droids this is a good place for you to pick up the Achievement "UH OH!" (10 GP) that you get for picking up a Battle Droid with The Force and using it to kill 50 other droids.
The Battle Droids re-spawn fast enough so that it will not take you long at all to unlock this -- and as it is not a cumulative Achievement (you have to do it all in one sitting) as I say, this is a good place to get it. Once you have it, then you should power up the torpedo dispenser and then launch your fighter and scoop up some torpedoes, and then launch them at the markers on the two ships.
After you take the two out the arrow points you back above to the bridge so head there now, and then flip the other switch, causing the Battleship to ram the enemy carrier, destroying it and triggering the CS that ends the mission!
You unlock the Achievement "You can have my ship" (10 GP) and you unlock Anakin's Jedi Starighter, and the V-19 Torrent Starfighter. You also unlock 2 more Gold Bricks!
