Story Arc:
Tour of Duty

In Prelude to a Crisis the player contacts the U.S.S. Khitomer in distress and is ordered to beam over in an attempt to offer assistance.


The player starts the game in the ship's mess hall, witnessing a raging battle between some Starfleet ships and a Borg Cube outside. The Captain commands the player to the Bridge in order to hail the U.S.S. Khitomer. Since the ship's EMH is in need of assistance to fight back a Borg boarding party, Captain Qat'Anmek orders the player to beam over and offer assistance.
