You will receive the following reward:

A mysterious "person of interest" has surrendered to Starfleet at a secret research station. What secrets do they possess?


Mission text[]


One of our classified research facilities has taken a high-profile person of interest into custody. Starfleet Intelligence sent agents to investigate, but the prisoner refuses to speak with them on the matter.

Here's where it gets interesting - the prisoner says they will only speak to you about this.

Naturally, Starfleet Intelligence wants to get to the bottom of things, and so they've requested your assistance. You've been granted clearance to enter the facility and meet with the prisoner. Get out there and see what's going on.


A curious matter has been brought to my attention. It seems that a "high-profile person of interest" has been taken into custody at a Starfleet research facility. Naturally, Starfleet Intelligence sent agents to interrogate the prisoner, but the results were... unusual, to say the least.

Apparently, this prisoner refuses to speak to anyone but you.

The Federation, through the Alliance, has requested your assistance on this matter. I want you to comply with the request. I am quite interested to learn what a Starfleet prisoner will only say to a Klingon officer.

Romulan Republic[]

Jolan tru. Starfleet has taken custody of a high-profile person of interest at one of their research facilities. Curiously, when interrogated by agents of Starfleet Intelligence, the prisoner refused to speak to anyone but you.

A fascinating response, to say the least.

Starfleet has requested your assistance, of course. I want you to comply with that request. I am quite interested to learn what this prisoner will only discuss with an officer from the Republic - and why.


Glory to the Founders, and the Dominion we serve.

Your new assignment is...unusual, to say the least. It seems Starfleet has a very important prisoner in custody at one of their research facilities. Furthermore, the prisoner refuses to speak to anyone...except you. How intriguing!

Report to the research facility and assist Starfleet Intelligence with their investigation. I am quite eager to learn what this prisoner will only speak about to a Jem'Hadar warrior!

Remember - knowledge is power. And, as always...victory is life.
