Mission 30 A
PSX 20171115 085527

Mission 30, named Shuttle Rescue, is one of the missions and the former last mission in Space Agency. After a micrometeoroid hit the Space Shuttle and has been left adrift nearly 4,000 NaviComp units from HOM, the player's task is to rescue the crippled Shuttle, replace its batteries, refuel the shuttle, return it to STA and dock it to the Oxygen Garden.

A good strategy is to fly to Y:1920, then fly to X:635, or to just hit a direction that is near the purple planet.

  • Dock the Shuttle to the Oxygen Garden

Tips[]

  • There are no checkpoints on this mission, so if you do anything wrong, you have to restart the entire mission. It is currently unknown why there are no checkpoints in this mission.
    • It and the Tutorials are the only missions that lack checkpoints.
  • Leave the refuel/resupply craft (preferably a Station Builder Tug) docked on the shuttle until its fuel has been completely depleted.
  • The Shuttle is also moving slowly further from SOL, so if you take too long in attempting to rescue the Shuttle, the Shuttle may go too far from its original coordinates.
  • A small collision with the damaged Shuttle on the opposite side of its rotation may reduce its rotation.
  • If you can't find the Shuttle, unzoom and drag to corner of the screen. You can see a distance of approximately 160 NaviComp units horizontally and 190 vertically.
  • If you run out of fuel from your first refuel craft, you can stop the shuttle and put a waypoint at its position. Then, you can use your remaining money to send another refuel craft to that waypoint.
  • Build the rocket as it follows:
  • If you head south of ADS in a vertical line, then once you hit +1000 Y units, and that's the time where the Space Shuttle is seen.

Mission briefing[]

The Agency’s only Space Shuttle has been struck by a micrometoroid while on a routine scientific mission. It has been left drifting in space with no power and no fuel. It’s last known NaviComp coordinates were:
X:635 Y:1915
It needs rescuing urgently! Launch a mission to take replacement batteries and fuel to the stricken Shuttle. Once you have located it, transfer the batteries and fuel to it. Then, power on its electrical systems and its NaviComp. We believe that the shuttle's heat shield was also damaged by the collision. Therefore, re-entry is impossible.
Fly the damaged Shuttle to the Space Station (STA), and dock it with the recently installed Oxygen Garden module. Hopefully the heat shield can be repaired at the station and the Shuttle can be returned to HOM in a future mission.
