In City on the Edge of Never the player confronts B'vat as he attacks the U.S.S. Kirk and kidnaps a Starfleet officer.


After helping Captain Thelin of the U.S.S. Kirk against a Klingon ambush, he reports that Miral Paris, the supposed Kuvah'magh, was kidnapped by B'vat. The player follows him to the Gateway System, where B'vat takes Miral through the Guardian of Forever.


Mission Text[]

Starfleet Intelligence has completed its initial analysis of the data you found in Amar Singh's laboratory.

Preliminary results show that Singh wanted to use a combination of Klingon, Augment and Gorn DNA to create his master race, but that his initial results were less than encouraging.

What troubles Starfleet Intelligence are references in Singh's notes to past events. Since Singh has said his employer was interested in time travel, do you think he and B'vat could have been planning on manipulating the timeline for their own ends?

We want you to meet with the U.S.S. Kirk. It has thwarted several Klingon attacks on medical facilities in the past few weeks. They may have another piece of the puzzle. The Kirk is on a routine patrol in the Hromi Sector within the Pi Canis Sector Block.


Meet with the U.S.S. Kirk in the JFS 47 System in the Beta Quadrant and investigate the Klingons's[sic] attempts to manipulate time.

The mysterious "Visitor" aboard the Kirk

  • The mission has been slightly reworked as part of the Season 8.5 update patch tied to the 4 Year Anniversary Event on January 30, 2014. Significant visual updates have been applied to the U.S.S. Kirk interior – including the new Origin Bridge – as well as to the Gateway Planet surface.
  • Since the update, a mysterious "Visitor" wearing the outfit of a Temporal agent can be found in one of the turbolifts adjacent to the Kirk's bridge. He cannot be interacted with. With the launch of Agents of Yesterday in July 2016, this was revealed to be Temporal Agent Barrett.
  • City on the Edge of Never can be resolved without being asked to leave the planet/system, allowing players to acquire “Past Imperfect” and continue directly through the Guardian of Forever.
  • Since Delta Rising, players can now choose an option when talking to the Guardian, asking him of the Iconians.
  • During the Delta Recruitment Event, Delta Recruits had an additional dialogue option when speaking to the Guardian, which served as an additional objective: "Delta objective.png What do you know about the Iconians?"
  • This mission was one of several that were temporarily removed from the game with the launch of Season 15.
