When you enter the Alioth System, head for the 6th planet. Go to Green Alert. At that point Data will give Kiska navigational plots to follow. Take the "Nav Alpha" route. Then orbit the planet. Once in orbit have Miguel scan the planet's surface, this should prompt the next movie sequence. You will be detected eventually. Follow Data's recommendations to the letter.Take out the sensor posts. You will not be able to take all the Cardies on by yourself.
Once you have completed your objective. Warp back to Starbase 12.

Actually, every time I've played this mission the satellites are in a different location. Use the Map (M key) to view the overall situation. Enter orbit of the planet when both satellites are as far away from you as possible. If you want, use the nav points to move yourself around and get into that spot faster.
It's difficult to know where the different NAV points will take you...it's a little weird...Alpha goes in which direction? Left? Right? Up? Down? Diagonal? LOL. They didn't take the time to explain it very well. We're the captains...we want options! clear and concise responses...
Fine then. Sit and WAIT for the sattelites to move out of range before you enter orbit. It takes a while sometimes, but it's the easiest way.
I have a section on this mission on my site in the "Mission Strategies" section. Take a look sometime.
I looked at your site...I have to say it is most helpful. It's like a wlakthrough for Bridge Commander and I was never able to find one until now...thanks!
Oooo... got that warm, fuzzy feeling all over now... oh wait... I need to shave... LOL
