When you visit the mysterious Federation Holding Facility 4028 to seek aid from an old enemy, you'll find that you aren't the only one that wants her blessing.



Mission Text[]


The Federation Council has authorized the release of the Founder from the detention facility where she is currently being held.

I need someone the Founder will respect to complete the transfer. You're the best candidate for the task.

I don't expect any problems, but I didn't expect Jem'Hadar from the past to crash the Borg conference, either. So take my recommendations with a grain of salt.

The important thing is the safety of Weyoun and the Founder. We need their help if we want to end this standoff without more bloodshed.



Go to the Ayala System, which is located in the Kassae Sector of the Beta Quadrant and find the Female Founder.

Feature Episode Notes[]

  • Fourth of five missions of the fourth Feature Episode The 2800 released in February/March 2012. The missions were included for all factions at the end of the Cardassian Struggle/Dominion Domination storyline episode.
  • The mission is part of the Feature Episode re-runs, and as such eligible for limited time, special mission rewards.
    • During the second re-run (October 31 to December 5, 2013) the mission was eligible for the daily Lobi Crystal reward (once 15 Lobi Crystal icon.png per player account and day).
  • If you finished this mission on Console before Doff were added you can not get the Doff Cadre even if you re-play.


  • Prior to Victory is Life, Weyoun's role was taken by the original character Eraun.
  • Yes, you can fall off the walkways to your death. Nothing prevents you from doing so.
  • The choice between lethal and non-lethal tactics has no effect on the overall mission outcome.
  • One of the inmates is listed as the leader of the radical group "Children Of Khan", which most likely is a teaser for a future addition to the game.
  • One of the inmates is a Tholian, which most likely was a nod to the then upcoming Tholian Assembly enemy faction.
  • The Duty Officer Requisition - Dominion Cadre quest reward is only granted once per character's lifetime. When you replay the quest a Requisition Pack - Personal Shields will replace it as a quest reward option.
