Outline[edit]

Mission Text[edit]

Federation[edit]

Starfleet Intelligence has completed its analysis of the data you recovered in the Nopada system.

There is a 67.47 percent chance that the Iconians are using the Tal Shiar as a way to influence the Romulan Star Empire, and that their persecution of the Remans is directly related to this. Command is considering lending assistance to Obisek and his forces, but before we come into direct conflict with the Romulans we want to try a more ... discreet approach.

The data you recovered indicates that Hakeev is operating out of the Brea system. Long-range sensor scans indicate that there may be a major Tal Shiar installation there. We want you to infiltrate this system, apprehend Hakeev and destroy the Tal Shiar's base.

Hakeev must not escape. He may be the only person who knows how extensive the Iconian influence in Romulan space is.

Klingon[edit]

Klingon Intelligence has completed its analysis of the data you recovered in the Nopada system.

The Iconians are using the Tal Shiar as a way to influence the Romulan Star Empire. Their persecution of the Remans is directly related to this. They will hound the Remans until they are broken, or until they are too suspicious and beaten to ever trust an ally again.

This is a coward's way to wage war. Are they too afraid to face us directly? We will stop these machinations now. Then we will see if these demons are brave enough to show their faces!

The data you recovered indicates that Hakeev is operating out of the Brea system. Long-range sensor scans suggest that there may be a major Tal Shiar installation there. We want you to infiltrate this system, apprehend Hakeev and destroy the Tal Shiar's base.

Hakeev must not escape. He may be the only person who knows how extensive the Iconian influence in Romulan space is.

Romulan Republic (Federation-aligned)[edit]

Starfleet Intelligence has completed its analysis of the data you recovered in the Nopada system.

There is a 67.47 percent chance that the Iconians are using the Tal Shiar as a way to influence the Romulan Star Empire, and that their persecution of the Remans is directly related to this. Command is considering lending assistance to Obisek and his forces. As you have directly opposed the Tal Shiar in the past, your assistance has been requested.

The data indicates that Hakeev is operating out of the Brea system. Long-range sensor scans indicate that there may be a major Tal Shiar installation there. You understand Hakeev better than any of our officers, which gives you an advantage in destroying his installation.

Hakeev must not escape. He may be the only person who knows how extensive the Iconian influence in Romulan space is.

Goal[edit]

Go to the Brea system, in the Psi Velorum sector block, and investigate a Tal Shiar base there.
