In Within the Briars, the player must brave deadly pockets of Metreon Gas in the Briar Patch to protect spore colonies from the agents of House Mo'Kai.

Mission text[]

Starfleet's been reading a lot of Klingon ships operating near the Briar Patch. Normally, I wouldn't be too concerned, but there's a spore colony in there. If any of those Klingon ships belong to House Mo'Kai, then J'Ula might have a harvesting operation in there too.

Dangerous as it is, I think we need to go see what's going on inside the Briar Patch.


Complete the Briar Patch patrol by going to the Briar Patch or using the patrol launcher to start "Within the Briars".
