You will receive the following reward:

The Centre Cannot Hold sees the player attending J'Ula's speech before the Klingon High Council where she challenges the authority of J'mpok, pushing the Klingon Empire close to a Civil War.


Mission text[]

The treacherous J'Ula has requested to speak before the High Council on Qo'noS. A little-used Klingon law has restored her house - temporarily - and as Matriarch of her House, she has the right to speak before the Council if she wishes. Whether she leaves the Great Hall alive or in chains remains to be seen. She has much to answer for! As part of the task force assigned to deal with J'Ula, I have requested your presence during this... meeting. Should the barbarian make a nuisance of herself, I expect you to do what must be done.


Go to Qo'noS to attend J'Ula's meeting with the Klingon High Council.
