Mission Text[]


With the war over, it's time for us to rebuild, to take stock of our situation, and to return to our roots as explorers.

We've recently noticed that a star in an unexplored system near Ferenginar has become unstable. There's nothing to indicate any change to its stellar lifecycle, so this is a perfect opportunity for us to chart the system, investigate the star, and improve our understanding of what's happening.

I want you to head up this investigation. Find out why this star is suddenly dying, and make sure that it isn't going to be a threat to any nearby worlds or systems.


Now that the Iconian War is over, it is time to rebuild the Empire. That means looking for new places to expand.

On the edge of the Alpha Quadrant, near Ferenginar, our astrophysicists have noticed a star that is suddenly fading. They do not understand why it is dying, but they want more detailed information before the star goes out. They also say that there may be valuable resources to harvest from the system, so we should take this opportunity before the Ferengi do.

I want you to prepare your ship for deep space exploration and head to this dying star. Discover anything that might be useful to the Empire.

Romulan Republic[]

The Iconian War is finally over, and we can concentrate once more on securing the future of the Romulan Republic. We've recently learned that an unexplored star system near Ferenginar has suddenly become unstable. Nobody seems to know why the star is dying. In the interest of exploration and expansion of the Republic's knowledge -- and potentially its borders -- I want you to head there and see what you can learn. To secure our future, we will need resources and allies. Turning our ships toward exploration is the best way to find both.



Go to Deep Space Nine to pick up a solar specialist. Then, go to the unexplored star system at the edge of the Ferenginar sector in the Alpha Quadrant and investigate the sudden instability in the star there.
