After the events of “Revelation”, the player wakes up aboard the I.R.W. Khnial, which since its last appearance has been further upgraded into a formidable dreadnought. The player is captured by Hakeev and Sela, who brainwash them into serving the Tal Shiar.

The player's loyalties are tested multiple times: they are forced to murder one of their bridge officers (actually a hologram), build a thalaron weapon, and forcibly install Borg implants into a captured Republic officer. Throughout, they hear the voices of Tovan Khev and Sela urging them to fight and give in, respectively, to the conditioning.

Khimek eventually manages to help the player break free of the indoctrination, and signals their ship to come and rescue them. In the meantime, the player infiltrates deeper into the ship and gathers information about Hakeev's activities for the Republic. When the player's vessel arrives, the player beams aboard and leads a Republic task force in an attack on the Khnial, eventually destroying it (although Hakeev and Sela manage to escape through an Iconian gateway).
