Mission Text[]

We have a lead on the Krenim, <Rank>.

Voyager went to Krenim space looking for them a few months ago, but didn't find much more than Vaadwaur and some anomalous sensor readings. But now we've found a Ferengi selling what he claims are Krenim artifacts.

You are authorized to negotiate with the Ferengi and obtain these artifacts. Follow the trail where it leads. We need a weapon against the Iconians, Admiral, and the Vaadwaur have gone to a great deal of trouble to keep whatever secrets the Krenim have out of our hands.


Go to Drozana Station, which is located in the Beta Quadrant, and obtain a Krenim artifact.

During this time, the mission has a minimum rank of 10 and rewards a new special [Featured Episode Weekly Reward] once per account, per week for an effective event total of 3. The Reward Box contains a choice of either one [Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade], or one Specialization Point (claimable by all, but only usable on Level 50+ characters).

  • This is the only episode where the surviving Iconians besides M'Tara, T'Ket, and L'Mirren are seen in their modern day energy being forms. They would not appear again in-game until the episode “Midnight” where they are seen in their ancient Iconian forms.
    • Note: The nine other Iconian survivors are in the Foundry and can be seen in UGC content.
