Well actually, you only have up to your skirmish mission cap to lose...
Instead of give the scums free kills, you send your ship i and concentrate your attack on his expensive ship, bring a few down as you go...
Then you hyperdrove out when you have most nothing on the map (except maybe that little s-foiled xwing and stuff at the far corner)
Don't ever give the scums free things, make them pay with every bit of their blood.
