I am trying to complete the Romulan mission where you destroy the Federation convoy disguised as a Klingon.. (I forget the name of it)

Anyway... no matter how many times I try it I can't get all the freighters dead before they warp out. I am using a pretty well equipped Shrike class ship, no hacks or mods here.. hehe.

The best I have done so far is I only let two get away.. but obviously the mission is a failure unless they are all dead.

TIA!

edit: uh.. I should point out that this is for SFC3

That's odd.. by the time I got to that mission, I had a fully equipped Raptor (Double Myotronics, 4 Type 3f's They're pretty nice...).

The escort is usually an Akira or an Excelsior. This is how I did it: 1) Warp straight into the pack of freighters and open fire on the LEAD freighter. All of the ships will fire on you, but since you're in the middle, the phasers (which are pretty damn powerful) willl hit all four shield grids, which would disperse the damage, and if you're lucky, the shields will still be on.

2) Ignore the escort until all of the freighters are dead.

If the escort manages to do damage, turn on your evasive maneuvers and pray to your Romulan god that your helm officer is good enough to evade those torpedoes. :)

If that doesn't work, load your auto save and try and buy a Raptor... you should have enough money for one...

Here's what I would do: 1)Get a more powerful ship (either a raptor or warbird---I would go with the bird) 2) Have enough marines to capture... let's say 2 freighters. 3)Have a really good tractor beam. Now I would do the opposite of the above and go after the escort first. The freighters will make a turn for the side of the system as soon as a single shot is fired at one of them, but you can pound the escort all you want and they'll remain on course. Of course, you probably won't have time to destroy him before the convoy, so just disable his impulse engines and then go after the rest of them. Go after any ship that is on the left side of the convoy and get to within transporter range. Then match speed with the ship, and fire away. The first volley from your weapons should eat through any of the shields, so you're free to beam your marines over. Do this to two of the ships to take a little strain off of your weapons. Now, the others, just use your tractor beam, and pound the terd out of them (don't wait for the ships to be approaching the edge of the system before you start to tractor them because by then it's probably to late unless you're on the last ship.

This one gave me trouble for a while too. Good luck.
