Episode Arc - Delta Quadrant.png Episode Arc - Yesterday's War.png

The Iconian War story arc is a chain of cross-faction missions available to all factions.

Everything has changed when, after 200,000 years of absence, an Iconian appeared on Qo'noS and killed the whole Klingon High Council, warning the forces of the Beta Quadrant to not attract their attention again. "Demons of Air and Darkness" were no longer a myth - the threat they posed became real and an invasion was imminent.

Now the Iconians are here with a huge army of Heralds at their disposal. Through their use of gateway technology, the whole quadrant could fall in a matter of seconds. Now is the time to unite old friends and enemies, put differences aside and work together to stop their advance. Conventional tactics won't work; only ingenuity and great sacrifice may help win the battle. Even that might not be enough to win the war.

List of missions[]

EP - Uneasy Allies.png “Uneasy Allies”

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 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.
