Outline[]

Mission Text[]

Federation[]

We have reports of a True Way fleet entering the Neutral Zone and picking a fight with the Klingons near the Donatu system.

Having two of our enemies fight is good for the Federation, but I want to know why the True Way is so far out of their territory. Intercept them and deal with them. If you need to engage the Klingons as well, do so.

A Starfleet task force has already been sent to the area; you'll need to join them in the Donatu system as soon as possible.

Klingon[]

We have reports of a True Way fleet entering the Neutral Zone and engaging our ships as well as Federation vessels near the Donatu system.

We need you to intercept the True Way and learn why they are so far away from their territory. While you're there, destroy the Federation ships as well.

A small fleet has already been sent to the area; you'll need to join them in the Donatu system as soon as possible.

Romulan Republic (Federation-allied)[]

I always collect my debts, <rank>. I provided Tal'Mera with assets and materials to assist you in your recent encounters with the Tal Shiar. Now it's your turn to assist me.

  • The mission is part of the Feature Episode re-runs, and as such eligible for limited time, special mission rewards.
    • For the first Feature Episode Rerun week (May 12-19, 2011) new mission rewards were added to this episode, including making the rewards previously only available through mission replay ([Covariant Shield Array [Cap]x2] and [Regenerative Shield Array [Reg]x2]) available for selection on the first run, adding the [Phase-Shifted Personal Shield] (a permanent addition to the mission rewards), and adding the choice of level-appropriate badges for the duration of the Rerun week.
    • During the fourth Feature Episode re-run (October 31 to December 5, 2013) the mission was eligible for the daily Lobi Crystal reward (once 15 Lobi Crystal icon.png per player account and day).
