Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Summary: A Borg attack on a Federation museum (to obtain experimental Federation warp technologies) may aid their assimilation of the Alpha Quadrant.

The Federation museum known as Camelot Station

After lengthy deep space patrols, your vessel is summoned to Earth Spacedock for resupplying, plus a debriefing with Admiral Quinn's staff. Despite requests for shore leave, your debriefing is cut short when Starfleet Command receives distress calls from the Federation museum known as "Camelot" in System L-374. You are ordered to warp to System L-374 to rendezvous with the Aurora-class science vessel U.S.S. Valley Forge to render assistance.

Upon reaching System L-374, the Valley Forge is transmitting its disaster beacon. Your vessel must first render aid to the disabled Valley Forge, recover important data to conduct tactical analyses of the situation, and rescue survivors.

Given the escalating emergencies, Starfleet Command has dispatched the Fifth Fleet, led by Captain Talurr of the Avenger-class U.S.S. Righteous, to help you. You are under orders to continue your mission until their arrival.

Your ship continues to the Camelot Station, facing space-borne Borg adversaries, neutralizing Camelot's defenses, investigating the nearby fleet museum shipyard, then beaming aboard the station itself to assess the situation.

The reasoning for the Borg attack is revealed during the course of play.

The mission concludes with the arrival of Starfleet's Fifth Fleet to help you stop the Borg from completing their mission. New insights into Borg developments across the Alpha Quadrant are also revealed.


Note: System L-374 was part of Star Trek lore, first mentioned in the TOS television episode "The Doomsday Machine" (televised October 20, 1967) as written by noted sci-fi author Norman Spinrad. Despite the location, the doomsday device does NOT make an appearance, although it is referenced within the character dialogue.

Outline[edit | edit source]

Mission text[edit | edit source]

Located in System L-374, the Camelot Station was established in 2404 as an archival museum of Federation history. Over twenty million significant historical items, ranging from experimental Starfleet warp tech to the famous (and infamous) Captain Garth of Izar's hand-written journals, are part of the vast public museum collection. Your vessel is responding to a distress signal...

THIS IS A 30-40 MINUTE MISSION.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Players are asked to accept the dialogue assigned to their established characters for the sake of the storytelling.
  • "Camelot" refers to the mythical castle and court associated with the legendary King Arthur. Many of the museum displays within Camelot Station herald back to a different time -- the "Golden Age" and "Silver Age" of the Federation. These displays include preserved elements from history, including actual technologies, relics and artifacts.
  • The U.S.S. Excalibur is not assigned anywhere near Camelot Station. (Excalibur was the mystical, mythical sword wielded by King Arthur in Camelot to rule England.) Camelot is not a Starfleet base. It is a Federation museum!
  • The ship name, U.S.S. Valley Forge, pays homage to the 1970s motion picture, "Silent Running."
  • The Camelot fleet museum shipyard vessels (all, but two) may have disappeared at the end of the episode. But they will return in the sequel episode, "Dreams of Salvation and Glory." Their location at the end of "Camelot Under Siege" is a mystery.
  • It is presumed that the Camelot fleet museum shipyard vessels a.) escaped System L-374 for the nearby space lanes; b.) were assimilated by the Borg, with two museum ships surviving/abandoned and the other museum ships destroyed (hence the debris near the abandoned ships); or c.) escaped System L-374 by entering the active Borg transwarp gate. In the case of "c", the museum vessels would be stranded in the Delta Quadrant (Borg territory) with sub-light propulsion capability. The odds of their survival would be difficult; their likely return to the Alpha Quadrant would be unlikely. (Although that didn't stop the U.S.S. Voyager...)
  • The original plan for this episode involved shore leave by the player and his/her staff aboard an orbital Federation museum (Camelot), including an orbital shipyard with mothballed museum starships from NX-class to Galaxy-class. When the Borg arrived in the system, the player would be forced to fend off Borg invaders while trying to rescue museum staff and visitors. Simultaneously, a nearby inhabited Federation world would be threatened by the Borg's arrival. Limitations within the Foundry application prevented the implementation of the original scope and scale of mission objectives.
  • Normally, Camelot Station hosts 10,000+ visitors at a time. During this mission, visitor rotation is taking place, so the station has less than 500 souls aboard, including the staff.
  • Players can explore the maps to find additional items of interest, such as the Starfleet personnel waiting in Admiral Quinn's office, or the various Starfleet ships orbiting Camelot following its liberation, or scavenging the destroyed Borg cube at the episode's end, or orbiting Camelot Station.
  • There is nothing of interest within the cometary debris, seen within the first map to System L-374.
  • This episode takes liberty with the Borg attempting another incursion deep into Federation space (within the Alpha Quadrant). This does not conflict with established Star Trek Online (STO) canon; the Borg are routed from this system.
  • This episode also assumes that Admiral Quinn is still stationed on Earth Space Dock. Quinn is not actually shown in this episode, though.
  • Lastly, this episode also references Starfleet's "Fifth Fleet" -- as homage to the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet. There is no direct correlation between this fleet and any fleets within STO that might be similarly labeled. The same applies to other contacts (ships, characters) used or referenced within the episode. Such usage is merely coincidental.
  • Star Trek Online (STO) Foundry developers are welcome to re-purpose this episode into non-English, localized languages supported by the STO game, provided credit is given to "Tucana" for the original episode concept ("Camelot Under Siege").
  • The sequel episode is "Dreams of Salvation and Glory." A third mission in the Camelot series is under development, pending future changes to the STO Foundry tools, due to a lack of needed assets.
  • The characters "Captain Andros", "Commander S'lor", "Captain Talurr" and "Commander Darcy Wyatt", plus the starship U.S.S. Righteous, will factor into future Camelot missions.
