You will receive the following reward:

In Researcher Rescue, the player is sent to the Kassae System to attempt to regain contact with the Federation science station there.


Summary[]

A Federation archaeology team has uncovered something that will put your crew in grave danger.

Mission Text[]

Starfleet has lost contact with the Federation science station in the Kassae System in the Kassae Sector of the Regulus Sector Block.

Because all communications from Kassae II must be boosted by a satellite that compensates for metreon isotopes prevalent in the system, it may be that the communications array is in need of repair.

Please make the necessary repairs to the communications array and re-establish contact with the science station.

Goal[]

Proceed to the Kassae system in the Kassae Sector of the Beta Quadrant and re-establish communication with the Federation science station.
