Just so you know, I'd be all for buying a t-shirt sporting the phrase "The dick swoops down, Andy." Just putting it out there.

Dan "Reading Prompts/Using Cover is for Goobers" Ryckert. Watching this was much like watching someone run serpentine through a minefield "because, well, fuck it." I loved it. Painful at times, yes, but entertaining. If it wasn't for the dismissals and power problem, I'd say good job overall. But well done with the mission at least! ^.^

To fix your tilt, or inclination relative to your target's (which was your main problem here) you want to make an maneuver at a point where you and your target share a rough intersection point (which you did kind of make happen) with your orbit-normal or orbit-anti-normal maneuver nodes. This will tilt your inclination from that exact point and fix that issue.

From there you just want to roughly match orbit shape and size by burning at apoapsis and periapsis if you need to, but leaving a small gap so that you're either travelling faster or slower in relation to the target. After that you can wait until there's an intersection window, warp to that then slowly burn into the target's orbit, thus matching relative speed. Then, provided you are indeed close enough to see your target, get out your ship and start flying!
