The Old Republic without space combat is a cold, dark place so it’s fortunate that there is spacefighting action amongst the stars. You’ll be able to undertake space combat missions after you gain possession of your ship.
The Cartel Listening Post (Sith) and Balosar Outpost (Republic) missions are one of the first three space combat missions that become available after you get your ship. The two missions are exactly the same with only the identity of the opponents changed. The objective of this space combat is to destroy an enemy space station by blowing up a number of turrets, shield generators, hangars, and antennae on the station. The final objective is to calculate the jump to light speed, but this is done automatically if you succeed in the mission so you can ignore this objective.
