Plus one of the following:

The player is called to a summit between the Alliance and the Dominion on Deep Space 9, where Odo appeals for help on behalf of the Dominion in countering the Hur'q threat.


The player arrives at Deep Space 9 and is met by Captain Nog. Nog guides the player round to meet with the 4 major faction leaders, then other Alpha Quadrant leaders and advisers including Rom, Kira Nerys and Julian Bashir. The player proceeds to the summit meeting in the Ward Room and after greeting a few more attendees, Odo begins with his briefing.

Odo outlines that the Dominion is on the verge of collapse due to Hur'q assaults. They have one fleet remaining and need aid from the Alliance, arguing that once the Dominion falls the Hur'q will turn to the Alpha and Beta Quadrant powers. Many leaders are supportive, but J'mpok is not willing to commit the Empire to the conflict.

The summit is then interrupted by a Hur'q fleet passing through the wormhole. DS9 comes under attack again and is boarded. Most of the boarding parties are in the damaged pylon where ore processing has been taking place. The potential for a large explosion from the processing center means the player is dispatched to secure the pylon.

Nog guides the player through reactivating safety procedures in the pylon while eliminating Hur'q boarding parties. Once the player has secured the pylon they return to their ship to assist with fending off the remaining Hur'q fleet.


Mission text[]

The Alliance has agreed to a summit meeting with the Dominion to discuss the return of the Hur'q, and what can be done to prevent their aggression from devastating all four galactic quadrants. Despite recent events, we've agreed to host the summit at Deep Space Nine - none of the galactic powers are comfortable hosting a Dominion fleet deep within their territory. Meet with me at DS9 prior to the beginning of the summit. I'd like to discuss our options.


Go to Deep Space Nine and meet with your Faction Leader.
