In The Vault the player is sent to investigate mysterious sensor readings emanating from a derelict Romulan starbase.

Synopsis[edit]

The Vault itself.

Intelligence reports indicate renewed activity at a top-secret Romulan research facility that was thought to be abandoned. The player is ordered to conduct a covert investigation using a shuttle. Immediately on arrival at the Haakona System it becomes clear that the facility is no longer unoccupied. Though the massive station is too large to cloak, there is no telling how large a force is garrisoned there, and so the player finds a way to bypass the sensor grid to enter the station undetected.

Inside, the player finds the sparse remnants of the once mighty Romulan Empire's secret endeavors. The station's still active power and security systems slow the player down as they move deeper into the station, though the Romulan military presence is mysteriously absent. The player encounters some interesting activity, including a salvaged Borg Sphere, but the source of the anomalous sensor readings is found in the final chamber; a massive Thalaron generator.

The player is confronted by a Reman captain identifying himself as Obisek. Obisek explains that a rift has opened in the Romulan Star Empire between the Romulans and Remans since the fall of Praetor Shinzon and the destruction of the Hobus star. He goes on to explain that his resistance movement requires weapons to liberate the Reman people, and that he has no qualms in resorting to barbarism to save his race from subjugation. Obisek suspects the player of acting as a spy on behalf of Empress Sela, and with regret informs the player that he cannot allow anyone to interfere with his agenda.

The player's shuttle is attacked by several wings of Reman Scorpion Fighters as it makes it's escape, as well as some larger vessels from Obisek's fleet. On leaving the Vault the player finds that the cavalry has already been dispatched to deal with the Reman vessels in the system. Due to the environmental effects of the micro-nebula surrounding the Vault, the allied captain asks the player's help in fending off fighters and heavy torpedos.

The allied ship retreats at high warp to draw the Remans away to allow the player's shuttle to escape. The whereabouts of Obisek or the Reman resistance are left unknown, and the stage is set for what could descend into civil war within the Empire.

Outline[edit]

Mission Text[edit]

Federation[edit]

The Romulans had a base known as the Vault that they used for research into Borg technology.

This facility was abandoned in the chaos after the destruction of the Romulan homeworld, but intelligence suggests that the work there was far enough along that it was used to retrofit Nero's ship before it disappeared along with Ambassador Spock's vessel in the Hobus system.

Long-range sensors have detected energy spikes in the Haakona system, and Starfleet Intelligence believes that someone is bringing the Vault back online. We need to know who and, more importantly, we need to know if there is still Borg technology or restricted weaponry on that base.

I need you to proceed immediately to the Haakona system and investigate the Vault. Engage if you must, but I would prefer if you could gather the information we need without conflict.

You must use a shuttlecraft for this mission, such as a type 8 shuttle, a runabout, or a Delta Flyer.

Klingon[edit]

The Romulans researched Borg technology at a base known as the Vault. The Vault was abandoned in the chaos after the destruction of the Romulan homeworld. We sent a group of scout ships into the region a few years later, but they were lost in an ambush by an unknown vessel. Since then we have been monitoring the region for signs of activity.

Long-range sensors have detected energy spikes in the Haakona system, and Klingon Intelligence believes that someone is bringing the Vault back online. I want you to find out who. I also want to know if there is any Borg technology or restricted weaponry on that base.

Good luck – and good hunting.

You must use a shuttlecraft for this mission, such as a Toron-class shuttle.

Romulan Republic (Federation Aligned)[edit]

Before the destruction of Romulus, the Imperial Navy and the Tal Shiar operated a base known as the Vault. It was a massive starbase in a remote system, designed to facilitate illegal research and construction projects on a tremendous scale. I am sure, however, that a breach of interstellar accords is no surprise to you.

Research at the Vault led to the use of Borg technology in various Romulan ship refits. While the facility was abandoned in the wake of the Hobus supernova, long-rang sensor scans have reported activity and ship traffic in the Haakona system, where the Vault is located.

Starfleet wishes to be certain that nobody is able to use the Vault to acquire Borg technology or Restricted weapons. Command has recommended that you, as a former subject of the Star Empire, may have an advantage in entering the Vault by subterfuge instead of force.

I need you to proceed immediately to the Haakona system and investigate the Vault. Engage if you must, but I would prefer it if you could gather the information we need without conflict.

You must use a shuttlecraft or fighter for this mission, such as a Tiercel Shuttle or Kestral runabout.

Romulan Republic (KDF Aligned)[edit]

Before the destruction of Romulus, your people's Star Empire researched Borg technology at a base known as the Vault. The Vault was abandoned in the chaos after the destruction of the Romulan homeworld. We sent a group of scout ships into the region a few years later, but they were lost in an ambush by an unknown vessel. Since then we have been monitoring the region for signs of activity.

Long-range sensors have detected energy spikes in the Haakona system, and Klingon Intelligence believes that someone is bringing the Vault back online. I want you to find out who. I also want to know if there is any Borg technology or restricted weaponry on that base.

Good luck – and good hunting.

You must use a shuttlecraft or fighter for this mission, such as a Tiercel Shuttle or Kestral runabout.

Feature Episode Notes[edit]

  • First of five missions plus an epilogue mission, of the third Feature Episode Cloaked Intentions released in February 2011. The missions were included at the end of the Federation storyline episode Romulan Mystery, but still form a separate episode (also titled Romulan Mystery) in the Klingon storyline. In the Romulan Republic storyline the episode is called Freedom and contains an additional short prologue mission.
  • The mission is part of the Featured Episode re-runs, and as such eligible for limited time, special mission rewards.
    • During the forth Feature Episode re-run (October 31 to December 5, 2013) the mission was eligible for the daily Lobi Crystal reward (once 15 Lobi Crystal icon.png per player account and day).

Notes[edit]

Hints & Tips[edit]

  • You can avoid all the sneaking around and just fly your shuttle directly into the Vault. You'll trip security alarms, but nothing prevents you from completing the mission.
  • Failing to enter the interior security codes correctly will lock you out but allow you to talk to some of the station inhabitants (as detected by the Romulan Shuttle). The Romulan Survivor gives you information about the station and a security code override.
  • The player does not need to destroy the Mogai Escort or the Bird-of-Prey in order to escape the Vault. It is advised that the player utilizes the superior speed and maneuverability of the Shuttle (or cloak, if the player is using a KDF or Romulan craft with such capabilities) to evade these larger vessels, rather than trying to fight them one-on-one. If you must fight them, one strategy which works is to stay behind them and use your torpedoes.
