Timeline Change Imminent!
This article contains information that no longer applies to the current version of Star Trek Online. The mission has been removed as part of the Cardassian Struggle revamp, released with Season Eleven: New Dawn on October 27, 2015.

In The Long Night, the player is sent to Empok Nor, in the Trivas System, to apprehend the leaders of the True Way Alliance.


The True Way is hiding on DS9's long-abandoned sister station. Penetrate its dark halls and find the leader of the insurrection.

Mission Text[]


Starfleet Intelligence has received information that leads us to believe that the leaders of the True Way are on Empok Nor.

The Cardassians abandoned the station decades ago. It's practically space junk now, and lingering memories of the Occupation keep most people away.

A good friend of the Federation, Elim Garak, has provided us with a passcode that should get you into the Central Corridor. But to use it, you'll have to dock at Empok Nor and send an away team through the docking ring.

I know this is dangerous, <name>, but we have a chance to end the threat of the True Way for good.


Romulan (Federation-aligned)[]

Starfleet Intelligence has received information that leads us to believe that the leaders of the True Way are on Empok Nor.

The Cardassians abandoned the station decades ago. It's practically space junk now, and lingering memories of the Occupation keep most people away.

I've acquired some personal passcodes that will allow you to enter the station and get past some of its internal security. We need to end the threat of the True Way, and capturing their leaders from their own base is a good way to solve this in one swift strike.

I won't undersell this: the True Way are dangerous, and this mission won't be without risks. I wouldn't ask for your help if I weren't confident in your ability to pull this off, <name>.

Romulan (Klingon-aligned)[]

Our analysis of True Way movements in the area has led us to believe that their leaders are using the ancient Cardassian space station known as Empok Nor.

The station was once a base for Cardassian work impressment and defenses, but it is now little more than space junk. It is remote enough and secure enough for the True Way to use it while avoiding detection.

The Klingon Defense Force has acquired certain military override codes that will grant access to much of the station. I'm sure that your people would be just as interested as mine in accessing whatever information the True Way has hidden away in the station's data banks.


Find the leaders of the True Way on the abandoned space station Empok Nor in the Trivas System, located in the Almatha Sector of the Alpha Trianguli Sector Block.
