The Hobus system has a long history of hosting nefarious activities. The Hobus star was the epicenter of the supernova that destroyed Romulus, and Taris used it as a testing ground for her experiments with Iconian technology. Any activity detected at this location must [be] followed up on in order to ensure that nothing that could endanger the quadrant occurs there again.

Rendezvous with Lt. Cmdr. Kyla VanZyl to investigate these readings.


Mission text[]

<Name>, I'm currently on leave from Voyager and I was passing near the Hobus system in a shuttlecraft when I picked up some odd energy readings.

I took a detour to investigate – you can't be too careful where Hobus is concerned. But I wouldn't mind some help. Can you rendezvous with me at these coordinates? Having a real starship here would be a big help.


Rendezvous with Lt. Cmdr. Kyla VanZyl in the Hobus system, which is located in the Beta Quadrant.

  • Uneasy Allies was released on March 26, 2015 as the intro to the Iconian War arc. A special event was held until April 16th. During this time, the mission had a minimum rank of 10 (while Romulan characters were additionally required to have completed “Bigger Picture”) and rewarded a special [Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade] once per account, per week for an effective total of 3 per account.
  • Pieces of the Romulan Imperial Navy ground set, the [Romulan Imperial Navy Personal Shield Mk XII], and [Romulan Imperial Navy Career-Specific Kit Reward Mk XII] became available on April 2, and April 9, as weekly rewards.
  • The accolade "Curse Your Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal" is a reference to the sci-fi series Firefly, a quote used by Wash as he plays with toy dinosaurs.
  • At one point, Sela says, "Who even builds rooms like this into a structure, anyway?" which is a reference to Galaxy Quest.
