Mission Text[]

Valiant warriors are being held by the Federation. The Federation's idea of "mercy" is to allow our soldiers to rot in a cell instead of seeking an honorable death.

I spit upon their mercy. We are Klingon!

I will allow you to attempt to rescue your fellow warriors from their terrible fate. But you will need cunning to do so.

The Federation penal colony is highly guarded. Only Starfleet vessels may approach. But I know where you can acquire a Starfleet runabout ... if you are up to the challenge.


Warp to Starbase 157 and capture a Federation runabout to use in your assault on Federation Penal Colony 47.
