Freeing a Falchion Dreadnought.

Azure Nebula Rescue is a 5-person space mission in which the players rescue Romulan ships being held by the Tholian Assembly in the Azure Nebula.


After the briefing, the team will have twelve minutes to rescue as many ships as possible by disabling the tractor beams holding them. T'liss Light Warbirds will reward 1 point, Dhelan Warbirds 2, Ha'apax Advanced Warbirds 3, and Falchion Dreadnoughts 5. The number and type of Tholian ships guarding each Romulan vessel varies depending on its type, and the number of Romulan Marks and Fleet Marks rewarded depends on the number of points collected by the team.


Mission Text[]

The Tholians are holding captured Romulan ships in the mysterious Azure Nebula. Assist the Romulan Star Empire by penetrating the Tholian defenses and freeing the captured ships.


Approach the Tholian bases and deactivate the tractor beams, allowing captured ships to escape. Collect as many points as possible before time expires.

  • This mission was remastered on April 17, 2021 with improved visual updates, bug fixes and mission objectives. Furthermore, Tiaru Jarok and the R.R.W. Lleiset has been added providing the opening briefing and joining players in the battle, replacing Subcommander Mivek and the R.R.W. M'sarr.
  • This mission was added to the game as part of Season Seven: New Romulus.
  • The ships the player had to rescue were originally T'varo, Mogai, D'deridex, and Scimitar-class vessels; as of the June 20, 2013 update these have been replaced by T'liss, Dhelan, Ha'apax, and Falchion-class Warbirds, respectively.
  • Occasionally a bug will appear where a captured warbird will be destroyed in the crossfire between the players and the Tholians, but the tractor beams and icon will remain.
  • The second Free Ten Points Worth of Ships optional activates around 1 minute and 30 seconds after the first one finishes.
