- “Empire Defense Against Federation Spies”: A Federation task force is hiding in the Kahless Expanse.
- “Officer of the Watch (Daily)”: One possible assignment is to escort a battleship carrying a Starfleet dignitary to the starbase.
- “Starbase 234 System Patrol”: A Federation battleship makes up the last line of defense the player must defeat before taking on Starbase 234.
- “Surface Tension”: Numerous battlecruisers help defend the Sol System from the Undine. Later, six of them accompany the U.S.S. Enterprise-F in the Qo'noS System.
- “Capture the Flag”: A battleship is one of several alliance vessels under attack by the Vaadwaur in the Orlitus System.
