11:34pm 2007 Sunday 18th February 2007 There is a VERY quick way to knock Whispers in the Dark out.

Mission 1: Kill everyone - no way around this step.
Mission 2: Just kill the haulers, buy the Construction Blocks on the market - the agent will accept them because it doesn't specify (specific item). If you're going to be running L2 missions for a while, just buy like 50 of them to get five runs of this storyline out of the way.
Mission 3: Haul the stuff
Mission 4: Kill everyone in the first room, then in the second room, just kill the Worker's Quarters.

Mission's finished. Ideally you want a ship that can hit out to around 30k and just kite the enemies.
