The Measure of Morality (Part 1) is the first in a two-part mission celebrating the 10 Year Anniversary Event of Star Trek Online and includes retrospectives of the game's past episodes as well as tie-ins to Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard and the wider franchise. It takes heavy inspiration from the Original Series episode The Savage Curtain.

Outline[ | ]

Mission text[ | ]

The long-range sensor arrays in the Traelus System went offline recently. The last thing they picked up before that happened was a Borg scout ship. I'm heading to Traelus now to investigate. If this is the beginning of a new Borg incursion, I could use some backup. Meet me there as soon as you can.

Notes[ | ]

  • From launch, the mission rewarded [Assault Squad Phaser Rifle Mk XII [CrtH]x3]. On 6 February 2020 this reward was swapped out for Seven's Tetryon Rifles.
  • In the “Cutting the Cord” simulacrum, the Iconians have come to Hakeev's aid earlier and are aiding the Tal Shiar in open combat against the Reman Resistance.
    • If Obisek is saved, Hakeev convinces the Iconians to follow a scorched earth policy, leading to a far more bloody war.
    • If Obisek is sacrificed, unification between Remans and Romulans fail. The Romulan Republic is never formed and the two species engage in a civil war.
  • Noye's logs in the “Ragnarok” simulacrum reveal that Noye killed Picard and Vash on Risa, obtaining the Tox Uthat. With it, the Na'kuhl sun was restored. Krog desired to use the device against Alliance worlds, tempered only by Noye's desire to use it at Procyon V first. His logs also reveal that the Temporal Liberation Front is fractured, yet unlike in the normal timeline which saw the defeat of several members before Procyon V, all members of it are still fighting during the battle. The strength of the TLF at this point led to the intervention of the Female Changeling.
    • If Noye's life is spared, and the Female Changeling killed, he is impressed by your actions in his defence and agrees to stand down. He hopes the alliance will act to try and restore the Tuterians. However the loss of the Female Changeling would eventually lead to the early fall of the Dominion during the Gamma Quadrant arc leading to the Hur'q rapidly overrunning the rest of the galaxy.
    • If the Annorax is destroyed, the TLF will see him as a martyr and use the Tox Utat against every alliance world.
  • In The Red Angel simulacrum, Control caught up with Discovery and the ship was destroyed. Burnham took on the role of the Red Angel while Control reanimated the Discovery's crew (including a still-living Lorca and Landry).
    • If Burnham is inoculated, the data is saved but she will no longer be able to use the suit and thus cannot move the data into the future. Control remains a threat.
    • If the data is destroyed, Burnham is killed and Control continues to exist.
  • The stardate provided at the beginning of the episode, stardate 84999.22, would place this mission in late 2407, and is likely an error, as the opening cutscene has a subtitle that explicitly says it takes place in 2411.
