Mission Text[]

I need a capable ship and crew to check on reports of Borg activity in the Burgus system.

The <ship name> is more than up to the task, and I know you have previous experience with the Collective. There's no better officer for this task.

Stay alert. There have been reports of other ships in that region, including Tal Shiar vessels. The Burgus system is well out of Romulan space. I'd like to know what their purpose is out there.


Investigate reports of Borg activity in the Burgus system, which is located in the Beta Quadrant.
