In Dust to Dust, the player and Captain Harry Kim return to Kobali Prime to repel a Vaadwaur attack, and discover a secret the Kobali have been harboring.

This mission introduces the Kobali Samsar Cruiser, which players could obtain through the “Collect 2015 Anniversary Event Rewards” Event Reputation project during the 5 Year Anniversary Event.



Mission text[]

<rank>, we have a situation on Kobali Prime. You and I were both asked by name to help.

All that we've been told is that the Vaadwaur have launched a large offensive and have retaken the area in front of their "temple"... the place where they keep unconscious Vaadwaur stored.

They need our help to retake the area, though I have a feeling something else is going on. Can you help with the situation?

  • Feature Episode, released as part of the 5 Year Anniversary Event on January 29, 2015. Until March 2, the minimum level requirement was 10, and the mission also rewarded 400× [Anniversary Qmendation] upon the first playthrough per character, as well as a choice of a [Kobali Uniform] reward.
  • The [Kobali Deflector Array Mk XII], [Kobali Hyper-Impulse Engines Mk XII], and [Kobali Regenerative Shield Array Mk XII] became available on February 5; February 12; and February 19, 2015, respectively.
  • An additional reward is hidden in the maze section (The Long Maze) of the mission: a lost Kobali Engineering/Command Officer Candidate can be found before finishing the maze. Her location is randomized, but can be found by going to the "!" on minimap and listening for the sound of a tricorder scanning.
  • This mission functions as a sequel to the Star Trek: Voyager episode, "Ashes to Ashes." It also follows up on the death of the "original" Harry Kim in the episode "Deadlock."
    • However in an error, the flashback to "Deadlock" at the start of the mission mistakenly places it as having happened 34 years ago. The episode actually occurred in 2372 - 38 years before the 2410 setting of this mission.
    • Also in the final dialogue with Keten the player character will tell him that he died 32 years ago - contradicting the earlier titlecard in the flashback.
  • For Delta Recruits, the console to read the Kobali Past Life Records is located to the rear of where Ensign Kim beams up to the Flagship, even though it is listed earlier in the map events.
