Mission Text[]

Excuse me, <rank>! I've discovered something and I don't know who to talk to.

While repairing a communication subsystem, I intercepted a transmission from Cardassian ships in orbit and discovered something unusual.

There is a subspace distress signal buried within the transmission. I can't tell which ship is sending it, but one of them is clearly in distress.

Both captains are part of the Cardassian Civil Defense Force, but it sounds like tensions are high and possibly coming to a head.

With everything happening on the ground, I can't get anyone to help me. Is there any chance you could look into this for me?


Resolve the conflict between Cardassian ships in the Bajor System.
