If you don’t know how to use Proton Torpedoes, maybe this image will help you.
5m 40s This is an opportunity to use your proton torpedoes here to finish the objective. You have time to fire off two torpedoes. Just make sure all your power is diverted to shields so you don’t take any ship damage.
5m 08s You will encounter the first group of six bombers here. You should destroy them using just blasters in order to save missiles for later parts of the mission where shield regen is important for survival.
4m 37s Once you destroy all six bombers and take a dive under the station, you will emerge with a Jedi ship in front of you taking peashots. Focus your blaster fire and missiles to destroy it ASAP and then work on the frigate nearby.
4m 07s You are going to take a lot of damage here, most from the turrets on the side of the Destroyer. Dodge as much as possible and make sure you go in with a full shield.This is also a good time to pop your EMP when you get near the frigate as this will take out the turrets on the side of the Destroyer, which is very handy as you will be making more passes here later in the mission (see 2m 29s). Use your missiles on the frigate if you can while dodging the enemy fire. Don’t take too much damage here or you will have trouble later on. Alternatively, you can just use your EWP here and turn on full blaster power.
3m 37s You will get a few seconds to take some shots at the frigate here before facing another set of six bombers. These guys are escorted by a Jedi ship that can dish out a lot of damage to your ship. You will want to get at least 10/30 bombers here or otherwise you might have trouble later on meeting the objective.Use your missiles if you can so you can regen shield and take less damage from the Jedi Ship.
2m 54s You will get an opportunity to finish off a frigate you encountered at 4m 37s.
2m 29s You will get a 2nd pass at the two frigates near the Destroyer. Hopefully the EMP you set off in the first pass took out most of the turrets on the destroyer. Pick the frigate near the back and finish it off when you come around.
1m 48s You will be taking massive damage from all the bombers here. Turn on your EWP and go full blaster power to take out as much as you can. In a few seconds, a Jedi ship will join them, forcing you to regen shield power and use missiles.
1m 09s Once you dive down towards the space station, make sure you have full shield power and then switch to full blasters and unload on the bombers below. You will take some damage here but take out as much bombers as it is safe to do so. Once you dive down, you will be following groups of bombers. Use full blaster power here and save up some missiles for the last frigate.
20s Here is your opportunity to finish off the last frigate. Unload everything you have on this frigate. I am not sure on which pass you encountered this frigate previously but it was lightly damaged. If you focus all your blaster fire and missiles on it, you can destroy it relatively quickly.
