Mission text[]

This is Captain Kuumaarke of the L.S.S. Reskava. My research group is under attack in the Andoria System. We believe the attackers are allied with House Mo'Kai, in service to Matriarch J'Ula. Their flagship is using some kind of... superweapon... we've lost three ships to it already!

To all vessels within range, please -- we require immediate assistance! We can't last much longer against -- [static]


Go to Andoria, in the Beta Quadrant, and repel J'Ula's assault on the system.
