Does anyone know a way to skip this level (PC version)? I'm short on time and would like to get through it. I've read the walkthrough, and if nothing else is available, I'll try new strategies. How about a mod? Is there one that would help? I can put up with the game, if I can just get through this darn level without expending an entire day.
I don't spend enough time here

OK.. Take the following ships, if you got enough money... Miranda refit Apollo refit Apollo Refit Alright, do not play the game in the normal view, use tactical.. Alrighty.. Use every ship to destroy one asteroid.. That means, order Stargazer to go at planet one, miranda refit to planet two, apollo refit_1 to planet 3, and apollo refit_2 to planet 4.. Now, see those asteroids which are bordered red, aka.. well, they look like selected asteroids.. And they are.. YOu need to destroy them, So, destroy them. After a while, the turrets will come available.. Use miranda class to warp to them and to drag them to the designated coordinates. Soon, the BIG asteroid will come.. What you gotta do is.. Use all ships, that means, select stargazer, come near one asteroid (be careful not to go through it or it might destroyed (you dont get damaged, but you loose an asteroid) and then tractor the asteroid. Then order Stargazer to go infront of the BIG asteroid. Same for all other ships. This mission was one of the easiest for me.. Passed it with first try.
Ok. Saw the red asteroids. Bought the ships you recommended. Ran out of time to play for now, but I'll get back to it later. Thanks for the tips.

You can do this mission quite easily with 3 Stargazers. Even though you'll have less ships, they can rip asteroids to pieces, and keep them at bay for you to collect the turrets (you only have to control the ship long enough to make it tractor, you can easily tell it to go to the base and the planets with the map).
