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.
