2/9/2012: Version 1.2 of the guide is complete. Now with more correct data, Operation names and rewards, and Commendation rewards as well. Added the Potential Bug list as well. Also, lets see if we can find a Daily Bonus for the Minefield missions!

Important Facts:
1) I play Imperial side, so the mission names are Imperial names. I assume the bonuses are equivalent for the Republic, and only have different names.
2) For Empire, Frigate = Corvette, and Capital Ship = the larger, oval shaped one.
3) The Daily bonuses can only be completed using Missiles/Torpedoes. And they take a lot of missiles, about 20 for the communication spikes, about 30 for the Capital ship bridges.
4) Some of the bonuses seem to require that you be a particular level to earn them. So while you unlock Skaross at level 34, you cannot get the Fighter bonus until level 41.
5) Objectives/Rewards in yellow can only be completed/earned once a day per character

Thanks to emidas for supplying the Republic side names.

[On the mission Skaross Fortification you can blow the command up with missiles. Its a bit tricky though. Several times as you pass the station on your right you can hit it with missiles. You can not see it but you can lock missiles on it through the station. Just aim for where it should be and you will be able to target and blow that sucker up. -Thanks to Shazrad for the tip]

Bonus 1: Destroy fighters and turrets (75) - 1526 credits
Bonus 2: Destroy the capital ship's bridge - 2538 credits(CoV awards 0 currently) - Daily (possibly bugged) Bonus
[With the Ship Bridge not awarding credits, unless you have a severe hankering for 680 Legacy XP, my recommendation is to use all 4 torpedoes on the shield generators]
[Despite being a rehash of Serapin Assault, there is no Frigate Shield/Engine bonus]


Operation Ascendant Pride / Operation New Eclipse - 7,848 credits, 15 Fleet Commendations, 2 Daily Commendations

As of patch 1.1.2, Operation Ascendant Pride / Operation New Eclipse now awards 2 Daily Commendations.

Only the main objective needs to be complete to earn the commendations.

Starting in patch 1.2, the individual missions will no longer reward fleet commendations, and the commendations will be moved to the daily operation reward. In addition, crafting materials will be purchasable with Fleet Commendations. Thanks to Dulfy for the info, and read more here


Space Mission Bugs:
1) Destroy the Bridge bonus mission on Clouds of Vondoru currently awards no credits. Zosha Advance rewards 2538 credits. Thanks to Jackii for confirming that only the Empire-side mission is broken.

Possible Space Mission Bugs:
1) Several of the "Hard Mode" space missions lose bonus objectives from their "Normal Mode"cousins. Ex. Ship Bridge on Aeten vs Skaross, Fighters on Sullust vs Nez Peron.
2) There does not appear to be a Daily bonus in either of the Minefield missions. Bug, WAI, or are we just not looking hard enough?

I'll try to add as much info as I can to this list, as I find things out.

Of note, my level 22 character no longer gets xp from Jabiim Escort (5xp from bonus and completion) however the destroy turrets still does not unlock when I destroy a frigate turret. I want to say that these kind of bonuses (not the daily bonus) is put in there so that higher level characters still get some kind of incentive to do it. If you notice, the credit amount from the bonus non-daily is higher than the mission and primary bonus objective credit combined on all of the missions..

Thanks, I do my best.

Also, I'm out of town for a few days, so I can't test this personally.

I noticed, and a couple people have pointed out to me as well, that there's a Capital ship that shows up near the end of the Jabiim escort mission. (About 1 min remaining on the timer)

You'd probably have to be a pretty hot stick to take out its bridge with missiles, but if anyone can take it out with a torpedo just to confirm if it is/isn't a bonus objective, let me know and credit will be given.

I'm of the opinion it is impossible with missiles. I try to take it down with all of my characters, it never works. I believe the missile count is closer to 25 to take down a bridge, after some testing, but you just can't get that many missiles into the bridge in the time alotted. If anyone has level 50 characters with protons, help would be appreciated it in testing.

On the Cartel Listening Station, after the first time you do Bonus 3, doing it again nets only 500xp.

Correct. That is a Daily Bonus, and can only be completed once a day per character.

I'll edit the main list to try and make the differentiation more clear.

Lemme clarify this stuff for ya =) I like this space stuff way too much..

For destroying the array, you always get 500 xp. Even when you destroy it first and get the objective credits and XP.

This objective is repeatable - consider it a daily quest. It is reset in the morning when the other space combat missions are reset. I assume you probably tried to do it twice in one day. Don't get discouraged, it is still repeatable.. but just once a day.
