Mission Text[]

<rank>, what do you know about the Borg nanovirus?

The Borg aren't just assimilating individuals anymore. They've found a way to assimilate entire areas. They infect the technology, the water, the flora ... even the air. After that, it's only a matter of time until the entire planet is Borg.

If this process is allowed to continue unchecked, they'll assimilate the entire sector. And from there? They could assimilate the entire Federation, the Klingons ... everyone. You've seen what happens when Borg technology is used to bad ends.

Starfleet has a team working on a counteragent. They went to Kessik IV to collect more samples, and after that, Starfleet lost contact with them.

We need that team and the data they have collected. Our defense plans are useless without them.

I need you to take the <ship name> to the Kessik system. Find the researchers and bring them back.

I don't need to tell you how dangerous this is, <rank>. Watch your back ... and may the Elements watch over you with favor.


Rescue a Starfleet team working on a counteragent to the Borg nanovirus in the Kessik System, located between the Galdonterre and Cestus Sectors of the Gamma Orionis Sector Block.

  • At the Turning Point phase of the episode, Damaged Borg can all be found hooked up to stasis chambers. Get their health down to 0 and they will turn friendly, you can then reprogram them.
  • Some Damaged Borg can be tricky to find. They are all located inside the inner area that was originally blocked by the force field. Nearly all the Damaged Borg have a pack of Drones very near or next to them.
  • This mission was merged with “Collateral Damage”, and replaced by the revamped version “A Gathering Darkness” with the release of Season Nine: A New Accord on April 22, 2014.
