After arriving at the camp and delivering supplies and weapons to the survivors, and teaching them how to fire, the Taureans strike again, but this time the away team and the survivors were forced to hide in the wreckage and to electrify the hull as a way to force the Taureans to withdraw.

However, two crewmen were captured by the natives, forcing the away team to go search for them. As the team returned from the Taureans' refuge they encountered Klingons searching the wreckage. By defeating the Klingon away team, the player discovers a PADD revealing the true reason of their presence. The mission comes to an end as the away team and survivors return to the shuttlecraft.
