You will receive the following reward:

In The Lost City of Paradise, the player keeps investigating reports of thalaron weapon triggers on Nimbus III.


You'll need to gain the trust of the townsfolk to begin unraveling the mystery of Nimbus.


Horace Jones directs you to the local bar and a Liberated Borg named Two of Eight, who tells you that operatives sent to Nimbus previously went missing in the desert outside of town. With few clues, you head out looking for traces of your missing allies, only to discover that the sands of Nimbus are the home of dangerous animals - not all of whom walk on two legs. Surviving the scorpion-infested sands and returning to Paradise City, a confrontation with Two of Eight leads to a Romulan called "Law", a former Peacekeeper who the Orion Syndicate made an example of to the people of Nimbus. After convincing Law to help you, you make your way out to the old ruins north of Paradise, now home only to Aehallh Worms, but once the site of a Nausicaan mercenary camp, to gather information. The only intact information, however is a mysterious message...


Mission Text[]

Funny seeing you folks here. No one seems to bat an eye about our little planet until the Orions get their hands on something nasty. Now between that and the Romulans, this joint is jumpin'!

You want info? Sure, I'll give you info. The owner of the local bar, a reformed Borg by the name of Two of Eight, has his ear close to the ground.

He can tell you more about the Tal Shiar. Just don't tell too many people I told you, alright?
