I find anything above 3 shields is next to useless; it's somewhat mandatory to get evasion up to 40% so the effect of cloaking is maximized.

For the Rock ship achievement you can't kill the other ship's crew, you have to blow up all 15 ships.

Re: How many attempts? Any successes?

It counts restarts, and if you're playing with certain ships you'll want to do dozens of those. Beat Normal with the Red-Tail on my fifth or sixth attempt after playing easy to unlock all the ships.
