The thing that bugs me is the excuse for only getting 1 fuel from elite fighters. I don't care that the cruisers are coming, I'll kill them too, just give me some scrap!

it's a gameplay element. if you got rewards for fighting the rebels you'd no longer be 'on the run' from them, and you could take your time and just farm the front of the approaching fleet.

You start off with a damn fine ship (which ever model you choose) because you have a load more hull than any other ship you come across. By the time you get to the final sector, your ship should be a murder machine capable of destroying the best rebel ships you come across. It's entirely plausible to me that your ship is the best single ship that the Federation can throw at the rebel flagship.

Only for a somewhat limited time, because you'd lose when that "jumps until in range" counter hits zero.

I believe he was referring to the rebel ships that attack you if you stay too long in any particular sector, which don't have the gameover timer.

What bugged me was that the story doesn't set it up that way. Yes the ship is more powerfull than the enemies you encounter and with upgrades becomes so strong that it really is the best hope of defeating the Mothership. But when the game begins you are told to run from the Rebels and expect a desperate struggle to reach the Feds.

The change in the story from "Scout running from the Rebel fleet with vital info" to "Rebels worst nightmare and hero of the Federation" is very sudden. I guess it was done that way to surprise the player first time they get to The Last Stand. Just wish the wording was a bit better.
