Mission Text[]

Federation[]

<rank>, I'm getting dozens of reports of raiders hitting civilian ships near the Badlands. Starfleet Intelligence believes that the raids are related to True Way activity in that region.

We know that area is a haven for smugglers and criminals of all types. It stands to reason that the True Way are using it to avoid capture as well. They might even be using some kind of Maquis base that was abandoned before the Cardassian war.

I know the Badlands are dangerous, but I have complete confidence in the <shipname> and her crew.

Klingon[]

<rank>, we have received reports of so-called "True Way" activists in the Badlands, a region of turbulent nebula-like activity near Deep Space 9. The True Way are made up of Cardassians and Dominion elements that refuse to recognize the treaty signed by their government after the Klingon Empire destroyed Cardassia's military power.

The Badlands are a haven for smugglers and criminals of all types. It stands to reason that the True Way are using it to avoid capture as well. They may have even occupied old fortifications used by criminal Federation elements from before the Dominion War.

The Badlands are dangerous and filled with hostile ships. This should be a worthy challenge for the <shipname>. Show the True Way why they should not be so quick to draw the ire of the Empire!

Romulan[]

<rank>, I'm getting dozens of reports of raiders hitting civilian ships near the Badlands. Starfleet Intelligence believes that the raids are related to True Way activity in that region.

I know that this is a bit far from the Romulan Republic, but this kind of commerce raiding has a tendency to get out of hand if it's not handled quickly and decisively. The last thing we need is the True Way expanding its operations and becoming involved with the Tal Shiar or other organized groups.

The Badlands are a fairly dangerous region of space, but you've already shown that the <shipname> can handle a little danger.

Goal[]

Find a True Way raiding base in the Badlands in the Cardassia Sector of the Beta Ursae Sector Block.

Strategy Notes[]

  • When investigating Moon Alpha it is wise to only engage one Heavy Orbital Weapons platform at a time (stay out of range of the others). If three of the platforms manage to get a lock (this is possible if you simply fly toward the planet), along with the Galor cruiser in orbit, you are unlikely to survive!
