Quickie Version

 UTAD, via any of the left orbit star rollovers, right spinner or center-left saucer (this ejects through a gate to the top), unless you can hit the left 50,000 lane reliably.
 Go-To Flipper:  Balanced.

Full Detail

Can you hit a tight shot? Really tight? If so, shoot the left 50,000 lane all day from the right flipper, and be rewarded with both big points and a unique screeching sound effect. If not, go for bonus. Base bonus is built by 1000 for each drop target. Completing sets of five lanes (A-B-C top lanes plus D-E return lanes, lane change is not available), shooting the top saucer, or completing both target banks to spell “pinball” increases the bonus multiplier. The saucer shot is tight, and missed shots at it yield drainy rebounds, so opt for the sides if your accuracy level isn’t that high. Maximums are 29K and 5X for 145,000 total. I believe finishing A-B-C also lights the spinner.

I tend to stick with UTAD and ignore the bottom target bank. You should always ignore the two red side standup targets.
