Completing your first space mission earns you the Flyboy or Flygirl title. E.g. Flygirl Kindral
In this mission enemies won't target you much. They will mostly attack the shuttle you are escorting. The shuttle you need to escort stays a medium distance in front of you throughout the mission. It will have a small green bar on it. This is like a health bar and when it is all gone, the shuttle is destroyed and you will fail the mission
The key is to destroy enemy fighters as soon as you can before they can do much damage to the shuttle. Doing this will easily complete the first mission objective.
The final bonus objective is to destroy the bridge on the capital ship. This can only be done using a proton torpedo launcher which you can't get until high level. You will need to come back later if you want to try that objective.
