Synopsis[]

As the Tzenkethi threat menaces the Alpha Quadrant, a new hope presents itself in the Beta Quadrant. Team with General Rodek for a covert operation in the Briar Patch and seek the aid of one of history’s greatest Klingon generals.

Outline[]

Mission Text[]

Federation[]

Starfleet Intelligence has learned that Martok, the former Chancellor of the Klingon Empire... is alive. Quite a revelation - until now, everyone thought he was killed in a duel with the current Chancellor on Qo'noS.

Martok is being held in a Son'a facility in the Briar Patch. Officially, it's a research facility built to study metaphasic radiation. In reality, it's a high-security prison used to hold political prisoners.

General Rodek is leading a covert rescue operation in the Briar Patch. Meet with him there and help him bring Martok home.

Klingon[]

Imperial Intelligence has learned that Martok... is alive. I thought him dead by my hand, and yet he lives. WejpuH!

Martok is being held in a Son'a facility in the Briar Patch. Officially, it's a research facility built to study metaphasic radiation. In reality, it's a high-security prison used to hold political prisoners.

General Rodek is leading a covert rescue operation in the Briar Patch. Meet with him there and liberate Martok. Even an enemy should have the chance to live - or die - with honor.

Romulan Republic[]

Republic Intelligence has learned that Martok, the former Chancellor of the Klingon Empire... is alive. Quite a revelation - until now, everyone thought he was killed in a duel with the current Chancellor on Qo'noS.

Martok is being held in a Son'a facility in the Briar Patch. Officially, it's a research facility built to study metaphasic radiation. In reality, it's a high-security prison used to hold political prisoners.

Notes[]

  • Brushfire was released on July 18, 2017 with the launch of Season 13.5. A special event was held until August 10. During this time, the mission had a minimum rank of 10 and rewarded a new special [Featured Episode Weekly Reward] once per account, per week for an effective event total of three. The Reward Box contains a choice of either one [Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade], or one Specialization Point (claimable by all, but only usable on Level 50+ characters).
  • The I.K.S. Charghwi' begins the final battle as an enemy vessel, but becomes an ally after Martok takes command of the ship from Torg.
  • With the April 9, 2020 patch, the accolade "Riker's Apprentice" was altered to be easier to obtain, previously requiring kills instead of the current requirements.
  • The final space battle was updated with new cutscenes featuring Worf's and Sirella's updated models, as well as Sirella's updated voice over by Shannon Cochran, from Season Twenty-one: House Shattered.
