Mission Text[]

<rank>, Starfleet has been asked to send a representative to escort famed peace activist Cerin Teresa on a pilgramage to Bajor.

On this trip, she is scheduled to return several cultural artifacts to the Bajorans. In addition, she will tour the archaelogical digs at the Fire Caves with a contingent from the Vedek Assembly.

Cerin Teresa has dedicated her life to promoting peace between the Bajorans and the Cardassians. She uses her mixed heritage as a bridge, and she has made major breakthroughs in normalizing relations between these former enemies.

As you might expect, there are those who oppose her good works. The True Way has threatened her life on multiple occassions. I don't want anything to happen to her on our watch.

You will meet her ship at TRD-071944. Keep her safe, and keep your eyes open for the True Way.

Good luck.

Mission Reward[]

With the release of the Legacy of Romulus expansion on May 21, 2013, all missions originally rewarding a choice out of three profession-specific Kits, now reward a packed up Profession-Specific Mk <> Kit Reward, that automatically scales to the player's level and his chosen profession. (Release Note 2013-05-21)

Mission Replay[]

This mission is repeatable through Mission Replay, although the Rewards for completing may be reduced. Items scale to a player appropriate level (Scaling Rewards), as followed:

Level Rank SP Exp Mark <>
42–49 Rear Admiral LH & UH 1935 1856 X
50 Vice Admiral 2126 1856 XI


  • As of June 15, 2012 the Fire Caves part of the instance has terrible NPC pathing. This leads to the likely scenario of your bridge officers either getting constantly stuck or rooted in place. The same also happens to enemy NPCs.
  • As of February 2010, this quest can sometimes bug right at the end. It will say Depart System, but when you do the quest will not update.
  • During the Burn portion of this mission, you must complete the hostage rescue all at once. You cannot exit and return or you will only be able to rescue 4/5 hostages because of a bug that has you respawn at a point after rescuing the first hostage. As a result, the final fire barrier will not drop and you will be unable to progress.
  • You can acquire the mission when you enter TRD 071944 in Kora Sector in Zeta Andromedae Sector Block.
