Mission Text[]

<Rank> <Name>, we know that attacks from the Iconian forces are imminent. Their gateway technology means that distance has little meaning for them. Once the war begins in earnest, we will be racing to cover too much territory with too few ships. But we cannot fail.

To fight a war, we first need a plan. Admiral Quinn has requested your presence at a briefing on Earth Spacedock.


Travel to the Sol System in the Vulcan sector of the Beta Quadrant.
