Note: This is only for those that started to play as a Terran. There is not much fighting in the Terran sectors. After receiving the mission to follow some pirates and scan their base, deactivate the tracing system for that mission. You will notices that many stations have a red target (those are missions to kill, patrol, or protect). Because you do not have a good ship yet, it is best that you accept only missions to protect stations. In addition to a reward, you get a bonus for every kill. There can also be another bonus for you -- some of the ships might get abandoned. This gives you a chance to claim the abandoned ships and sell them, or keep the ship if desired, then upgrade it and have it as a wing man to help on harder missions that give even more money. Note: Other ships in the sectors also will help occasionally. Your Terran mission will not end because there is no time limit. Fly around the sectors and look for missions where you need to protect a station. Do this as long as desired, and save the game after every mission.
