This article refers to the new cross-faction mission from the Cardassian Struggle arc. For the previous Klingon mission, see “Spoils of War (original)”.


Mission Text[]

The True Way has stolen an Orb that the Obsidian Order failed to return after the war. Although we don't know for certain where they have taken it, we have been getting dozens of reports of raiders hitting civilian ships near the Badlands. Starfleet Intelligence believes that the raids are related to True Way activity in that region.

We know that area is a haven for smugglers and criminals of all types. It stands to reason that the True Way are using it to avoid capture as well. They might even be using some of the Maquis bases that were abandoned before the Cardassian War.

We believe that the Badlands are therefore the most likely place for the True Way to be hiding the stolen Orb. I know the Badlands are dangerous, but I have complete confidence in the <shipname> and her crew.


Find a True Way raiding base in the Badlands in the Alpha Quadrant.
