The missions now are a little more challenging. Finished a series of five missions for the Gallente agent I was sent to. In the last two missions there were about 10 frigates and a cruiser to kill. I turned on the invulnerability field for a bit, though the shield booster was still not needed.
Do not see much impact on my Gallente standings yet, and it is possible that the Gallente stint is over, as I am being sent behind "enemy lines" to Caldari space!
