Favorite Missions or Mission-sets (of course spoilers)

Wing Commander Saga has some varied and interesting missions. So my question is which ones did you like most and for what reasons: story, gameplay, art environment, etc.

My favorites have to be the Caliban system missions. I really enjoyed the new take on the nebula environment. The lightning in the background, the graphics, the mission gameplay is enjoyable. I didn't mind the story for mission in the middle with the cruiser; though it was very predictable. It was definitely a nice change of pace from the empty space environments while still being unique from of most simulators (ie in the air). I would describe the feel of the environments as cozy, actually. Like wrapped in a warm blanket.

I thought Caliban was pretty fun and well done. There are a lot and I am trying to remember them all...

I like the mission where you encounter the asteroid base and the docked carrier, it was fun and challenging. Also, the mission where you face off against Stalker was entertaining as well.

Really, there were very few missions that I didn't like, most of them were pretty fun and entertaining. I do loathe chasing capship missiles, so I suppose missions involving swarms of those were probably my least favorite.

Actually, I can tell you which ones I didn't like at all. Any mission where I had to fly a Longbow! It is really hard to jump out of the Thunderbolt into that pile!

*SPOILER* Hate Stalker. Hate him. That mission was fun; the first time, I almost made it. Got all the way to the 2nd encounter with Stalker, thought "hey, I'll beat this next time". Wrong. Fifth time around, it's not so entertaining, going through all those Sorthaks and trying to come out unscathed enough to take a couple of missiles, cuz I think Stalker may have the Infinite Missile, and I can't dodge 'em all. Hate him.

Liked the Challenger mission (unfortunate ship name, seems like. Too soon? :p ), the emotions were running high on that one :D. Also really enjoy taking down capships. The Longbow sucks, and I've only flown it once so far (as you can probably tell, I'm on the Stalker mission), but damn it's fun blowing up big things. Combined with it's healthy missile payload and a good fighter escort, the I didn't really have to tangle with fighters too much.

F*#k Stalker. F*#k him

I loved the first atmospheric mission.
I also liked the "story mission" with the cruiser in the nebula.

@GBOOM: The good thing is that when you get past the Stalker mission you will feel incredibly badass. :D

I think I hate him more because I know I don't get to kill him. That's Blair's job. But the the next time I play WC3, I'm gonna take some extra pleasure in destroying him...

Hyperion 4. No question. I posted waaaaaaaay too much about my experience with that particular mission here. If you've got about 45-60 minutes to kill, it's totally worth it, at least I think so...
