Well this is fun. A thread. In the EVO forum! In modern gaming parlance I feel this should be purple in colour to represent its rarity :)/>.
Anyway ... if you haven't done the Paaren Station missions, I would recommend moving on with them - check for deliveries in the mission computer as you most definitely will have done the mission to start it all off. Then you end up with a mission to retrieve the last shipment from Chorca where Voinians somehow managed to get, despite its being pretty safely way inside UE space. Leave that mission active and you will have a rather impressive escort wherever you go, including to kill the dreadnought ... should work the odds in your favour a bit :D/>.
Ok, i'll look out for them. Over the weekend i worked hard and upgraded my Lazira to a crescent warship. Took hours.
