I bought this at 2011 GenCon and have never played yet.

I play to run it tonight at my board game night and get some play in before I get the new KS version.

Is there a starter mission? Jeff's video review mentions a starting scenario fighting another ship. I paged through the book and did not notice a designated starting mission.
Is there one?

Don't have my books handy, but look at the first mission in the book.

i thought it was suppose to be the boot camp mission, but really that mission is next to impossible but it is a lot of fun and very stressful for the players (which is half the fun in this IMO)

That's the one... (My books are 1500 miles away at the moment)

also keep in mind there is a second edition. you could use the second edition starter mission which i think is available on the website, and use that with the first edition rules, if you want a gentle introduction.

try these quickstart 2nd ed. rules (this is a draft):

There's a couple sample starter characters here, but note that there's two pilots shown here, which is not ideal. Better to have one of each profession.

I've seen the latest draft of the full 300 page book and things are getting very good.
