Mission: Secrets of the Ancients
- [Friend of New Romulus] (title)
D'Tan and a Head Researcher A'dria enter the underground power plant to find an Iconian gateway and playback an ancient recording. 200,000 years ago, an Iconian is seen talking with another life form, likely a Dewan (though the universal translator is unable to decipher the conversation). Several explosions occur and the Iconian escapes through the gateway. Another recording, 150,000 years old, shows the power plant being connected to a giant machine. The Dewans seem to try to power the gateway, but fail, again resulting in a catastrophic explosion.
Excited about the discovery, D'Tan thanks the player for assisting them and pledges to share any research information they gather from this site.
