Mission Text[]

If you want proof, Centurion, then I'll provide it.

I'm transmitting several classified Tal Shiar files to your ship now. Read through them, analyze them yourself, and then you'll see the truth – D'Tan and his kind are terrorists and a threat to the survial of the Romulan people.

After that, I hope you'll reconsider your options. The Tal Shiar are trying to help the Romulan people and you should be fighting for us. We've been fighting for you all this time.
