A nice play-through, but in Wave 3 you made some mistakes.

Round 8
First- Bomber: Tap Hyp. Boom. Hyperion needs a damage source to use it's effect. It doesn't just deal 4 damage, has to trigger off another damage source. Also note that, even if you could do such, using the Hyperion effect on the Bomber causes the base damage from the Bomber's effect.

Round 9

First- Shocker: Discard Shotgun on Hyp (B). Tap both Hyp to kill it. Same issue as before, Hyperions need a trigger, so in this case you'd need to use the rifle or your Hyperion and Shocker would have traded.
Second- Bile Slug: Pulsar Shield on Hyp (A). Kill it with Hyp (A).
Third- Shocker: Discard Shotgun. Med Pack and FM tapped to prevent all damage. 1 Bio Enhancer on Hyp (A). Kill it.
Final- Swarm Caller: Tap ST for 2 damage. Attack with Hyp (A). Hyp takes 2 (4). Kills it in 1. Victory.

Otherwise seemed to go well.
