Mission: Hearts and Minds
When the player enters the station the away team is attacked by an automated defense system, that the player needs to override. While investigating the base the player finds evidence of medical experimentation. Finally, the away team finds a laboratory filled with clones of Doctor Sibok, all but one in stasis.
When talking to the clone, he attacks the away team, trying to stop them from obstructing the research. Finally, the player finds another room filled with clones, who immediately attack. After swiping the station, the away team finds no evidence that Sibok experimented on any other sentient life forms than his own clones.
 Mission text
I've lost contact with an old . . . colleague. Doctor Sibok was a Vulcan priest, but he worked with the Vulcan science academy studying psionic phenomena.
A few years ago he went into seclusion on a remote research station in the Donatu system. He hasn't been heard from in some time. I'd like someone to check up on him.
Don't worry, He's just a typical Vulcan by himself. You shouldn't have any problems.

- Reportedly, Hearts and Minds was created by Jesse Heining during off-work hours.
- On the STO forums, the limited availability of the mission created a controversy in which at some point Daniel Stahl interfered by commenting:
- "In defense of the kind soul who spent their own personal time making this mission quite some time ago but was asked if they would hold of publishing it so we use it for a fun little Friday the 13th event - that person doesn't deserve the crap laid on them by this thread." (sic)
