Ok, 2 things, guys... I am at the last ( I think... could be wrong) mission where you have to destroy a Romulan fleet and base, and as you capture the admiral, the Romulan reinforcements show up. they are "doubled in size". I am getting my butt handed to me by what appears to be super tough warbirds.. and second.. the bigger bummer...

Twice Ive attempted to play this mission, and twice, my PC has locked.. hard. I need to do a hard shut down on it. Suggestions?

Also.. when a mod mentions "Improved hardpoints", what does that mean? What a "hardpoint"?
