I've tried Kanz, Kabal, Cradle, Cha Raaba and Lotra so far. Kanz, Cradle and Lotra were easy, Kabal was a little difficult, and Cha Raaba seemed insane. I'll update this with more info after I've finish all of them. Ignoring what you said, these space missions DO take skill, and if you can't beat them, you honestly do need to just learn to play better.

it's not the end of the world or anything, I just think it would have been nice to be exclusive to the fleet/daily vendors and cybertech crafters.
Yeh.... I felt screwed over, spent 15 mill getting mats ready to craft T7 ship parts, and now they are buyable from cartel market, and already flooded GTN at a cheaper price than the cost to craft them....

I've completed them all (did some on the PTS in tier 6 gear, so I had a head start). I geared up the old-fashioned way on the live server, collected 2900 fleet comms between 4 level 50s, and then bought/made all the upgrades as soon as I logged on. I think it will be easier to gear ensuing characters (if I choose to do so...) because, assuming the quests reset daily, I can now make 160 fleet comms/day in @30 minutes on my main. And I think that I can complete some of the missions while incrementally adding the tier 7 upgrades. Don't necessarily have to have everything right out of the gate, at least now that I have the hang of them.

The one problem I have right now is that I can't seem to figure out the 14th bonus mission in my codex.

I finished:
two for Ardis Outpost Fortification (Annihilate the Enemy and No Pilot Stands a Chance)
two for Baros Ambush (Cripple the Enemy and Annihilate the Enemy)
two for Hypori Escort (Annihilate the Enemy and Eliminate the Enemy)
three for New Cov Asteroid Field (Eliminate the Enemy, No Pilot Stands a Chance and Annihilate the Enemy)
three for Regnant Station Assault (Annihilate the Enemy, No Pilot Stands a Chance and Eliminate the Enemy)
one for Thanium Disruption (No Pilot Stands a Chance)

I initially assumed it was the Minelayer in Thanium Disruption, but II think I've since destroyed every attackable spot on it (there appear to be 6 of them - 3 engines, two bays in the middle, the bridge in the front) a couple of times with no joy.

So...any idea what I'm missing? Can anyone who's finished take a look and tell me where I'm short?

Aside from that, I really enjoy these missions. They're difficult but doable, and none of them are really cakewalks like the old missions, even with all the upgrades. It's pretty easy to fail if you're not paying attention.

I dont agree here you shouldn't have to pay for something that you need to actually complete a mission in a game that you pay money to monthly. Most people have the advanced class 5 gear on their ship right now with these new missions its almost impossible to complete unless you have the class 7 gear in your ship.

I'm not sure which is which... as I only tried 2, but seeing the description, it was Cha Rabba(sp?) that I managed to beat... although after 5 tries...

then I went after the space station assault one (again, don't know the name) and failed twice... then gave up for the night because it was late...

if Cha Rabba, really was the hardest (which I've managed to complete on my own) I think the rest, I can persevere to pass them all... I'll see in the coming days...

it's the one from the Ilum zone on the right side right?

I'm finding that without the T7 missiles, I just cannot put enough damage into the hardened satellite point in the new ice field mission. I'm THIS close every time, and I can survive the mission easily. I've tried mixing up where I use my EMP but so far it hasn't helped me make any more progress. It's aggravating since this seems to be the easiest of the missions to complete (for me at least).

I personally hate railshooters, i suggest bioware just make a freaking space sim and remove this lame excuse for space combat.

Someone mention previously that you can get grade 7 gear with daily comms, where do you buy those to cause I can't seem to complete heroic space missions on grade 6 stuff.

Go to a one of the mission support vendors (the one that has the relics rather than the armorings/hilts) at any of the daily mission hubs and you'll be able to buy the Improved EMP and the G7 Shield Regenerator. The other G7 pieces have to be gained through other means (Fleet comms and crafting).

Here is a table that summarize how to get the Grade 7 parts outside the Cartel Shop. The crafted parts, especially the Improved Electronic Warfare Pod are pretty cheap on some servers (only cost me 200k on Harbinger)
