Star Trek Online Wiki

Garak's lure has brought the Hur'q upon Empersa. Now the Alliance stands with the Dominion in the defence of their homeworld and find a cure for the Hur'q.



Mission text[]

Empersa, the homeworld of the Founders, is under attack by the Hur'q. This is our darkest hour - if Empersa falls, the Dominion will come to an end.

I'm asking you to join in the defense efforts as soon as you can. A task force will assemble at my fleet's location in the Gamma Quadrant and warp to Empersa from there.

Remember - if we fall, the Alpha Quadrant is next. It's time to make a stand. I hope you'll join in the fight.

  • Home was released on June 28, 2018 as part of the Victory is Life expansion, concluding the Gamma Quadrant story arc. A special event was held until July 26. During this time, the mission had a minimum rank of 10 and rewarded a new special [Featured Episode Weekly Reward] once per account, per week for an effective event total of four. The Reward Box contains a choice of either one [Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade], or one Specialization Point (claimable by all, but only usable on Level 50+ characters).
  • Completion of the mission will grant Jem'Hadar players an accolade as well as remove their dependence on [Ketracel White]. While Ketracel White can still be used to gain its temporary combat and shroud bonuses, Jem'Hadar players will no longer suffer deprivation sickness if they run out of the White.
  • Speak With Jem'hadar Soldiers Optional Is Bugged...your mini-map says the soldier is there but a closer inspection of the mini-map shows its in an area of the map that you can't reach on foot. at this time there is no known fix for this for Romulan Faction Toons, also is unknown if the same bug exists for other factions.
