Playable Area[edit | edit source]
Since the Delta Rising expansion, it became the only quadrant of the Milky Way that cannot be visited outside of a specific mission. However it has been confirmed that the Gamma Quadrant will become playable, like the other quadrants, with the DS9-themed expansion due in the summer of 2018.
It can however currently be visited by the player in the following missions;
- “Operation Gamma”: Starfleet sends Alpha Quadrant representatives to the Idran System to negotiate with the Dominion. There a Ferengi named Farek promises to get the player in touch with the Dominion, and references the Dosi System.
- “Time and Tide”: The player visits New Khitomer in the year 2769 to witness the signing of the Temporal Accords.
- “Temporal Reckoning”: The player travels to New Khitomer again in the 28th Century to stop a temporal incursion.
It is also mentioned in the following;
- “Second Wave”: The missing fleet from 2374 suddenly returns in 2409, attacking Deep Space Nine in the Alpha Quadrant. Fleet commander Loriss has lost contact with the Gamma Quadrant, however.
- “Sphere of Influence”: The player accesses Iconian records of Vandros IV, viewing a live image of the world, while stranded at Storage Facility Z98.
It was previously mentioned in the following;
- “Rapier”: The player is sent into the Bajoran Wormhole to retrieve the lost U.S.S. Rapier and prevent it from falling into the hands of Dominion forces which have entered from the Gamma Quadrant side.
- “Forging Bonds”: The freighter S.S. Batris was en route to New Bajor when it was attacked by the True Way in the Algira system, implying that the colony had been rebuilt since its destruction early in the Dominion War.
