Synopsis[]

We have discovered that the Sphere Builders have been conducting operations in other universes. They aren't just looking to make changes in time, but in other dimensions as well.

Their experiments in the parallel universe have produced results that will aid them in forming Expanses here. We need to travel to that reality and stop the Sphere Builder research... while we still can.

Mission Replay[]

This mission is repeatable through Mission Replay, although the Rewards for completing will be reduced. Items scale to a player appropriate level (Scaling Rewards), as followed:


Notes[]

  • The Fire Suppression Device obtained from "Mission: Researcher Rescue" cannot be used to put out the bridge fires on the U.S.S. Yorktown.
  • A Slusho Mix can be obtained from the replicator on the bridge of the U.S.S. Yorktown. The replicator can only be interacted with after receiving the prompt to beam to the Delphic Sphere. The player must choose not to beam out by closing the dialog prompt. The replicator console does not glow, unlike most consoles that can be interacted with. The replicator is to the left of a Starfleet Officer across from 0718. It can be used to breed a Kelvin Timeline Tribble. Multiple Slusho Mixes can be claimed on replay or by placing the item on your Bridge Officers and constantly reclaiming it.
  • Admiral Garrett also recognize your character's faction, If you're a Romulan Republic character, he remarks that you are a long way from the Romulan Neutral Zone, if you're a Klingon Defense Force member, he remarks that your assistance is unexpected considering that they have been ambushed by the Klingons, if you're a TOS Starfleet member, he recognizes that you are a Starfleet Academy instructor in this timeline.
