I just couldn't let that shuttle and the Star Galleons get away like that, so I revised my tactics slightly. This time, I targeted one of the Planetary Fighters in the first wave, told Emon to ignore it, and disabled it so that the next wave wouldn't launch. That gave me the time I needed to chase after the escaping shuttle and destroy it without being harassed. Then I looped back and circled the Star Galleons with turrets on autofire. Next, I destroyed the disabled fighter, dealt with the remaining waves of Planetary Fighters, picked up Uncle Anton, and inspected and destroyed the cargo containers and the freighters until the VSD showed up and launched its TIE Fighters and Interceptors. After I survived the TIEs and took down the VSD, I destroyed the rest of the Viraxo property and completed the mission with a score of 7522 plus 4825 bonus points. Not too shabby, I think.
