In The Core of the Matter the player joins Temporal Agent Daniels in uncovering the truth behind unusual temporal activity in 23rd century. Envoy, a mysterious individual from the future, reaches out to Romulan Star Empire and offers them powerful weapons in exchange for their help in his war across the timestream.

Mission Text[]

<Rank>. We've detected significant temporal activity in the Galorndon Core system, circa the 23rd century. I'm going to investigate it, and I'd like you to join me.

We believe the Na'kuhl are involved, along with a planet-killer... a Doomsday Machine. If so, we need to stop them at all costs.

I'll provide your ship with holographic camouflage - it's best if the Romulans of that time don't see a vessel from the future.
