I recently completed the Diphidia II missions, where you uncover the Astex conspiracy, and I have a criminal legal status in the Diphidia system. I think it's because I blew up the bulk freighters, but that's part of the mission. Is there a way to finish the string, and have a good legal status ?

I beleive there is no way to avoid that. I currently assume it is a mistake in the programming. You must live around it.
I never bother with that mission. A really waste of time, when I do do it, it is so easy, I am normally pillar of Society in all the systems with enough credits to kill myself tones of times and still purchase cruisers. My advice, ignor the mission.
Those who stand, will always fall.
On the other hand, you could be a rebel with a good ship who doesn't give a rat's behind about his legal status in Confed systems...
Capt. Splendor, you must not realize that you get 1 million greds for that mission.

Diphidia is an independent system, mad cow disease.
My other ship is also a Kestrel ...

Actually I do know that it gives 1 mil. Frankly, in the given time that you do the mission without killing any confed ships, I can make 3-4 times that much, just disable and board a bunch of kestrels and corvettes and their you are. 1 mil is nothing, same as 10 mil.
The one mil is not enough for the missions, I think they shoulda payed you more, same as the 10 mil for the alien mission (mind you it is easy to destroy the alien ship). They shoulda payed 20 mil atleast because you were saving the entire galaxy and the human race :).
I never got into trouble with the Diphidia government when I did that mission string..... You were probably just unlucky... Or what side do you support, Confederation or the Rebels....?

I support the Rebels. I'm usually a Confed, but I decided to do something different with this pilot.
Ahhh, the ol' Diphidia missions. They just don't make missions like that anymore. They make them much better. Anyway, out of all the times I've done those missions, I've only been demoted to criminal status a few times, and that was when I didn't have a Good Egg or higher rating in Diphidia and surrounding Confed systems. It's a good mission to do if you are just starting out with a new pilot file and need some quick credits (without using cheat plugs) or you just want to wipe out some harmless defenseless Confeds. I prefer the latter.
The wheel's still spinning, but the hampster's dead.
I never had that problem - even though I didn't have a super high rating in Diphidia. Maybe you blew up a confed ship, or got a couple of argosies when the freighters went up - they produce quite a bang, and 3 explosions next to the same ship can destroy it.
Maybe it's just the version of EV you have. I've got 1.0.3, everything seems fine, though, I would like 1.0.5. Shame I don't have the internet on my trusty performa 630.
