Mission: New Romulus: The Power Source
This mission is only available to players who have completed Tier 4 of the Romulan Reputation System.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
The player and their away team enters the Underground Ruins (as requested by D'Tan in “Latest Findings”) and studies geological instabilities, Dewan artifacts, and Tholian equipment. Eventually they reach the end and must shut down the ancient Dewan power plant before the Tholians inadvertently trigger another seismic event.
Outline[edit | edit source]
Mission Text[edit | edit source]
<Rank>, we've detected a power source under the Hwael Ruins.
The location is a series of lava tubes that lead to an underground volcano, but the energy readings are not geothermic in origin. We need to learn more, but the mineral content of the lava tubes is affecting our sensors, and a probe simply won't be able to do the kind of tests we need.
I know it's dangerous, but would you be willing to explore the area? You and your team will need to use environmental suits – the heat and pressure would be too much for anyone but a Tholian.
