You will receive the following reward:

In The House Always Wins the player assists the House of Martok in uncovering the Great House which has conspired with the Romulans to bring about their destruction.


Together with his son K'mtar/Alexander, Worf assists the player in the fight against the House of Torg in the Gorath System. During Torg's eventual discommendation and the dissolution of his house in the Great Hall of Qo'noS, Alexander is stabbed and dies in the arms of his father Worf.


Mission Text[]

The idea that one of the Great Houses is conspiring with Romulans to attack the House of Martok is troublesome, <Rank>.

Come to the Ketha lowlands. Worf and I would be honored if you would participate in M'Ven's Heghtay.

Once we have put our family matters to rest, you may work with Worf and K'mtar to determine our plan of attack.


Go to the Ketha Lowlands to mourn the death of the heir to the House of Martok.

Mission Replay[]

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

Level Rank SP Exp Mark <>
10–19 Lt. Commander 1158 675 IV
20–29 Commander 1552 1338 VI

  • Warning There is a random bug in this mission at step 3 (in the Gorath System): When destroying Freighter 1 before the other 3 satellites the last one might not count. There are 3 Satellites to destroy, before destroying either Freighter. The Freighters won't respawn so you might need to leave the system to restart this step again.
  • The first new ship will be awarded after this mission. If you get to Level 10 before, you will not receive the new ship. This is the only playable faction where the reception of the first new ship is tied to the storyline.
  • Upon completion, the optional mission “Tournament on Forcas” automatically gets accepted.
  • Marta refers to Alexander's death and the feud between Houses Martok and Torg in “Treasure Trading Station”, therefore the latter mission takes place after the events of "The House Always Wins".
  • This mission was remastered on 6 October 2020 with new environment and character art, voice-over and streamlining. In addition, Rodek has been added attending M’ven’s Ak’voh in the Ketha Lowlands.
