This article contains information that no longer applies to the current version of Star Trek Online. The mission has been removed as part of the Romulan Mystery revamp, released with the 5 Year Anniversary Event on January 29, 2015.

Some parts of this mission have been repurposed in the new mission “Desperate Measures”.

Mission Text[]

Before the U.S.S. Nobel went missing, it and a top-secret research team were assigned to find and investigate a Borg Sphere that we had picked up on long range sensors.

It was Starfleet Command's intention to secure the sphere and its technology before the Romulans could do so.

We failed. The Romulans captured the sphere and our team. You saved the Nobel and her crew, and now we need you to find the sphere.

Our most recent intel puts the sphere in the Pilatus system. Find it and keep it out of Romulan hands. Recover any survivors from the research team and data that you can, but you must scuttle the Borg vessel.

The Romulans are looking at anything they can use to build their military might. They won't shy away from using Borg technology.


Go to the Pilatus System, which is in the Vendor Sector of the Alpha Centauri Sector Block and find the Borg Sphere that the U.S.S. Nobel was studying. Recover any Federation survivors and data left behind and then scuttle the sphere.
