Mission Text[]


Thank you for coming to New Romulus, <rank>.

Since the destruction of the Romulan homeworld, Romulan space has been unstable. The Federation tried to offer a hand in friendship, to build connections with the survivors. When that failed, Starfleet Command made the decision to take several pre-emptive strikes to eliminate threats before they could become open warfare.

Whether or not these actions were justified is not for us to debate. With the formation of a new Romulan colony world and the alliance of the Remans, we have a second chance. What we do here, on this planet, will shape the Federation's relationship with the Romulan Star Empire for decades. We can create a new alliance ... or we can wake a sleeping dragon.

I believe in Ambassador Spock's plan for reunification. That is why I volunteered to be a liaison between D'Tan and the Federation. But before that can happen, we need to earn the Romulans' trust. You will help us do that.


Thank you for coming to New Romulus, <rank>.

Since the destruction of the Romulan homeworld, Romulan space has been unstable. We have done our best to keep the situation contained, but as Kahless said, an unpredictable enemy is the most dangerous foe. The Romulans have been blinded by pain and rage, lashing out at anyone who is foolhardy enough to approach.

Normally we would not concern ourselves with yet another attempt to reunify the Romulan people like D'Tan is doing here. The High Council, however, sees this one differently. D'Tan has managed to gain the support of the Remans – something we ourselves are still working to do. D'Tan has strength of conviction, and he does not want to build a military empire. In short, he does not want to be our enemy.

We have a chance here to cut the head off of the snake. If the Romulans change their ways, we will have eliminated one of our most dangerous enemies without a single blow.

There was once a time when our people and the Romulans were allies. It could happen again – with your help.


The Romulans have several projects with which they need assistance. Start building your Reputation with the Romulans by helping them on New Romulus.
