I need help with Federation mission 9 - I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do! I have the fleet of ships warp around the map looking for this borg staging grounds, but nothing happens once I find the borg base. And if I go to far into Borg territory, they destroy all my ships! I have my ships on green alert, but I'm still attacked. Why can't I just get a construction ship from the begining of the map? It'd make it a lot easier.
At the begining of your mission put your ships on green aler and send them waiting for reinforcements. When reinforcements arrive you will get 2 construction ships. Then build a starbase, shipyard sience and vulcan and research centers and lots of defenses. You will need at least 32 ships in two fleets to completed this mission. You will be facing both Borg and species 8472. Borg staging ground is in far bottom right corner, very carefull contains two nexuses and lots of defenses. Attack nexuses with combination of Galaxy and sovereing class battleships. They kill them quickly. You will need 32 or more ships. And also your base will have to be strongly defended against borg and species 8472 when they attack. When you destroy borg staging grounds return your fleets to your entry point and mission will be over. good luck and let med know if my advice helped.

Once you have your base established and bigger fleet for god sake man put them on red alert so that they will fight back
Where am I supposed to wait for reinforcements? How long do I have to wait? I hate waiting.
You will have to wait few minutes for reinforcements other wise your fleet will be toast. After you build defenses and shipyards and other stations start building ships. You will need lots of to ward of several atrtraks by borg cubes
You have to wait for reinforcements in far upper left corner for your back up fleet. And when your rteionforcements arrive do not allow them to chase attacking borg ships to far or you will lose them Remmember you need lots of ships when you go against borg bases they after all have two nexudses in far right lower corner of the map
16 sovs worked for me.
Don't put your ships on green alert unless there is an enemy ship you must not destroy or you are going after a target that must not be destroyed, instead put them on yellow/red alert and set movement to green.
