The Lukari have discovered lifesigns similar to their own on the Class-M planet within the Gon'cra Nebula. The player is asked for assistance in unraveling the mystery behind the biosigns on the planet, and help in uncovering the reasons for the inexplicable failure of the probe that gathered this information.


Mission Text[]

While searching for signs of weaponized protomatter, one of our long distance research probes made a most curious discovery. It found a Class-M planet at the hearth of the Gon'cra nebula.

That's not the most exciting news, however. The probe detected the presence of sentient life on the planet. The biosigns were very similar to our own.

It is possible that we have discovered a lost tribe of Lukari! We're going to investigate and we'd like some backup. The probe went offline rather suddenly after detecting the planet. These people may not be very friendly!


Enter the Gon'Cra Nebula in the Alpha Quadrant.

  • Mirrors and Smoke was released on April 25, 2017 with the launch of Season Thirteen: Escalation. A special event was held until May 18th. 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).
  • The surface of New Kentar is toxic enough to be hazardous, and exposed characters may periodically be afflicted by coughing fits that may Hold or Disable them. This is rarely an actual problem, but if needed it can be prevented by wearing an activated Environmental Suit or possibly a Rebreather.
