My favorite strategy is similar to that above, however: I like to have just a level 3 space station and either Maradur or Broadside Missile Crusiers. When the pathetic force hypers in, I'll send my fighters & bombers to disable their engines, while the missile crusiers use their "Barrage Area" ability to entirely pwn anything in the way.
Favorite Generals and ZH quotes:
Helix: "I'm Going To Ruin Somebody's Day."
Missile Defender: "I wanna blow some'n up!"
Dozer: "That one's pretty banged up."
Dr. Thrax: "Ah! You destroyed my command center! Ah well, I always hated my commanders anyway. Heh heh heh."
