Mission text[]

Hostile activity has been reported in the Beta Quadrant.

This is unfriendly territory to say the least. Roaming Borg vessels are constantly looking for a chance to slip past and disrupt our massing fleet.

We need to stop hostile vessels before they can reach the fleet. Patrol the Beta Quadrant. If you encounter an enemy vessel, I'm authorizing you to use whatever force necessary to deal with the problem.


Locate and secure three wandering enemy signal contacts in the Beta Quadrant.


  • Defeat Enemy Signal Contacts (3)
