Wave 9
NOTE: The last two sub-waves have a built in time-delay for when they spawn. I was starting to "finish off" the ships in the corners when sub-wave Saturn Avenger (the 4th sub-wave) spawned right ON TOP OF ME. Fortunately I had repaired before I went into the corner -- but it was quite a surprise to see those ships all appear at once. The last sub-wave spawned the same way.

Good Gray~Hawk causing 31,831 damage. NOTE Hellfire missile half way between "Evil" and
"Good" Gray~Hawk ... fired by "Evil." Also in the screen shot are a couple of Evil Iris's, the 
one at the far right can be seen shooting a blue laser.

The Kronos and Home Galaxy Gates on the Battle Map

I  used the following 2 configurations for the entire gate.

1. Speed 
Ship:  15 G3N-7900 Speed Engines, 15 LF3 lasers.
Drones:  4 LF3 lasers, 12 BO2 Shields 
If you have the Apis and/or Zeus Drones – Add 2 BO’s on Apis and 2 FE3’s on Zeus.
Pet in Guard Mode.

2. Slow Tank

Ship:  9 G3N-7900 Speed Engines, 8 BO2 Shields, 15 LF3 lasers.
Drones:  4 LF3 lasers, 12 BO2 Shields 
If you have the Apis and/or Zeus Drones – Add 2 BO’s on Apis and 2 FE3’s on Zeus.
Pet in Guard Mode.

3. PET
 - I had my PET out but in Auto Looter Mode so it would get the PET EP and have it pick up all the NPC cargo. I did not use the PET kamikaze so I could get a good feeling for how strong the aliens were.

The Kronos Galaxy Gate in 3-1

Here are the resources that I used to complete the Kronos Gate:
Lasers - seprom used = 55,775 (which means I fired 55,000+ rounds of x3, x4 and RSB laser ammo)
Rockets - seprom used = 1922 (which means I fired 1,922 PLT-2021 rockets)

UBR-100 rockets used = 1,640
PLT-2021 rockets used = 1,992

x3 ammo used = 8,608
x4 ammo used = 27,712
RSB ammo used = 19,455

TOTAL Rewards from all sources

TOTL EP gained = 25,399,000 (from GG reward, NPC rewards and EP Booster on ship)
TOTAL honor gained = 638,534 (from GG reward and NPC reward)
TOTAL credits gained = 14,424,900 (from NPC rewards and from cargo collected and sold)
TOTAL Uridium gained = 35,544 (from GG reward and NPC rewards)
I USED UP = 3,216 Xenomit in using my ship to refine all the cargo (I got MOST of the cargo, but not all of it). The enemy ships do NOT give any Xenomit.

Time 
It took me around 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete. I was not in a rush to finish it. I did not get killed, but did have to run and repair a number of times.

Wave 13

8 -=[ Evil Iris ]=-

Well, not exactly -- the enemy iris's fly separately from your ship and each hits around 2K, shooting blues. The Iris's are each named "Evil Iris." MY evil ship (also named "Gray~Hawk" but the name was in red) hit me at 32K using x4 white ammo (not "fats") and the Hellfire Missiles in salvo's of 3. I took the ship first as it posed the greatest danger. The Evil Iris's were hard to lock on to because they are so small and the move around pretty fast. I also found myself trying to lock on to MY OWN IRIS's by mistake. It was humorous, but I was glad they were only hitting at 2K because it took me a while to kill them all.

NOTE: Once you finish this wave YOU HAVE TO REENTER THE KRONOS GALAXY GATE in order to actually "finish" the galaxy gate and collect your rewards.

What follows is a list of the 13 waves of ships in the Kronos Galaxy Gate. The Kronos gate has also a special twist: The NPCs in the gate will not look like ordinary NPCs, but will look like the player ships. They are from a parallel dimension, in which Saturn is another faction that has come to destroy MMO, VRU and EIC alike. 

I found it a bit disconcerting at first to be firing at "ships" -- but you have to simply think of them as NPC's that look like ships with pilots.

Most waves have what I call "sub-waves" which I have listed for you in order of their appearance. 

KRONOS GATE REWARDS - NOTE: I had EP and Honor Boosters
10 green booty key(s) collected.
Kronos Gate completed.
15 log-disks collected.
You received 15,000,000 EP.
You received 540,000 honor.
Extra energy for galaxy gates received (250)

There is a "chance" that you can win a gold colored "Saturn" ship, I was not lucky enough to win it. I did get the coveted "crown" for my ship's tag however.
