In Assimilation the player helps defend the Vega Colony against the Borg Collective.

Synopsis[]

The player beams down to a fortified position on Vega IX. Commander Kelly is coordinating the defense of the colony. He explains, that the Borg are rounding up colonists, but have not made a move to assimilate them. He orders the player to get equipped by Ensign Byarnez, who hands out rifles and kits. When armed and ready, the player heads out to rescue colonists from the Drones.

Kelly realizes, that the Borg are building communication arrays in an attempt to contact the Collective for reinforcements. Thus he orders the player to disable the heavily guarded installations. After disabling the structures defenses, the player is able to shut down the array. Kelly restores contact with Starfleet and the player returns back to the ship for new orders.

In orbit of Vega, Admiral Quinn hails the player to coordinate a final maneuver to push the Borg out of the system. The ship warps out to meet with the Federation fleet.
