I second this
I must have tried 5 or 6 times to beat that mission. I nearly gave up on the game, and then I read your strategies on it. First try back I nailed it.
Thanks to everyone who posted in the past on this.
I used the, "head towards the nebula after dropping off Aeron, make sure shields are fully charged, and take out the shuttle before more then one squad is launched" strategy. Worked like a charm. Only had two Zero-G workers to take out right away, then mop up the ones attacking me, pick up Aeron, take out all the TIEs (my favorite part of any mission), and hyper out.
