Before the information gathered in the Nular System “previously” can be further investigated, Alliance Command directs the R.R.W. Lleiset and the player's ship to respond to a distress call from Alliance ships under attack in the Orlitus System. Upon arriving in the system, the Lleiset moves to outflank the Vaadwaur forces while the player's ship helps Alliance ship separated from the main group. After assisting three ships, who form up with the player's own, the player moves in to attack the main Vaadwaur force. Despite winning the battle, the Lleiset is boarded and an away team is sent to help repel the Vaadwaur boarding parties before they can capture the flagship of the Romulan Republic. Moving swiftly, the player's away team and the crew of the Lleiset liberate Sickbay, the Armory, and the Brig before a Romulan security team makes an attempt to retake the bridge. The first attempt is a failure, leaving the player to make the second attempt, only to find that the Vaadwaur are no longer there; the system lockouts have held and, unable to take the ship, the Vaadwaur Overseer now plans to destroy it from Main Engineering. Unfortunately for the player, the Overseer is immune to conventional weaponry, but with help from the Lleiset's crew, they are defeated. Now the Alliance has two mysteries to solve: tracking down the Vaadwaur bases and discovering the secret behind the 'invincible Vaadwaur'...


Mission Text[]

<Rank>, the alliance needs your help.

A group of alliance ships are currently under attack by the Vaadwaur in the Orlitus system.

The Lleiset is making its way there to render assistance. I want you to back them up. We don't know what the Vaadwaur have there, and I want to give us the best possible chance of victory.
