- 6 (Attack speed), 8 (Weapons system). It is vitally important to engage attack speed, otherwise you are a sitting duck and will lose the space battle for sure.
- In the weapons system view you must manage the shields. If radar says target is in rear, activate back shields by hitting B. If radar says the target is in front, activate front shields by hitting F. This is the most important part of the space battle, as a single hit in an unshielded area will destroy the shuttle. Otherwise just align the target to the crosshair, and fire to destroy it. After destroying five enemy ships the enemies will leave.
- Hit O to turn off weapons systems.
- Watch the cutscenes and credits.
