Our members are engaged in an armed struggle against the Biesmaan Dictatorship, a brutal regime that has invaded and occupied our homeland. We're in desperate need of experienced commanders to lead our forces in combat. Would you be willing to help us?

Galaxy 5 Operations Map

Breaking news from Galaxy 5: a major power in the sector, the Biesmaan Dictatorship, has launched a surprise invasion against its neighbour, the independent system of Zabe. With its significant technological and numerical advantage, the Dictatorship has quickly overwhelmed Zabe’s small defence force and in a matter of days the system has been forced to surrender.

Despite sustaining heavy losses, many of Zabe’s senior military figures have been able to escape from the conflict and have since found refuge among sympathetic governments. With GalCop refusing all appeals to intervene, there are now rumours that these exiles have set up a resistance organisation and plan to wage a guerilla war against Biesmaan in a bid to retake their homeland.


The ship selection screen

Resistance Commander is a mission/gameplay OXP set in Galaxy 5 that allows players to take command of a small squadron of ships in combat operations. Serving with the Zabe Resistance, you are engaged in a long campaign against the Biesmaan Dictatorship, taking every opportunity to inflict maximum damage on the enemy.

With this OXP you will be given the unique ability to:

  • undertake a range of different dynamically-generated mission types
  • give precise orders to your squadron using a specially-developed command system
  • manage your squadron personnel, including performance-linked promotions
  • assign a different selection of ships depending on the needs of each mission
  • monitor the overall status of the campaign

The Resistance will be relying your superior leadership; only by making full use of your squadron's skills and resources will you succeed. Note that players must have a minimum of 1000 kills to be eligible for service; in addition, the squadron command system requires that you have at least 6 missile pylons available on your ship.
