So for those who have played the demo, how do you win the space battle?
Seems that you can build a few units, but you then quickly reach the limit of how many units you can support. Take them into the asteroid system and you get smoked.
Am I supposed to just repeat this a few times, or is there some way to expand the # of units? (didn't see much else I could build)
You have 2 options. Money is no object in this battle nothing will attack you.
1. Sell all your land units, make loads of space units. I tend to make 5-7 x-wing and 9-11 y-wing bombers, You should be able to take everything out with these.
2. Leave your land units and take ships but concentrate on taking out a ship each attack, if you don't they just repair.
I work on the biggest ship first, take down the shields then the hanger and engine, it can then not move much has little defense and cannot launch ties.
I often just repeat this and take out the hanger and engines and shields on both ships and the station, they are pretty much sitting ducks then.
It is good to try and take out the big ship first though but i have taken all 3 out by hangers, shields and engines first.
Keep a solid eye on the empire 'mini ships' make sure you have one xwing to each one at all times, need to keep an eye on these as tie mincemeat your bombers.
Use the pause often to re-target and analyse things, i hate RTS in general but i like this game as i can pause think and submit orders then unpuase.
Hope this helps, i have done th land one also, thats great fun enjoy it when you get there.
If you need tips then let me know but its worth working out yourself, i beat it first time but after another 3 goes you can really streamline what you do and you learn alot, much fun

My advice is to make sure you bring the Millennium Falcon into battle with you (I didn't realize I had it my first few tries). Build only X-Wings and Y-Wings. When you reach the asteroid field, you might want to send the falcon out a few times by itself to kill some tie fighters. After that send everything you have at the enemy (X-wings and the falcon first, then Y-wings), killing ties with the X-wings and falcon, and targeting the components of the space station with your bombers. After that it should be relatively straightforward to destroy the rest of the enemies.
I still took heavy losses though, but it doesn't really matter since its the only space battle in the demo campaign.
Hell i was beating it without the falcon, i didn't even know you could use it! That will make it much easier i must give it a go
just used falcon for stealing credits!
