Hassan the Undying
History[edit | edit source]
- 2387: Hassan assassinates Orion Syndicate leader Raimus on Farius Prime, allowing Melani D'ian to assume control of the Syndicate.
- 2396: Hassan moves his base of operations to the former Orion homeworld, which observers speculate was ordered by Melani D'ian as a move to run Syndicate operations outside of Klingon space.
- Date Unknown: Hassan arranges to purchase shipments of Decalithium from Quark, who had discovered a vein of the ore beneath a pergium mine he owned. The Orions intend to use the decalithium as a power source for long-rance subspace transporter technology. During the first shipment, Hassan's lieutenant Raka is exposed to catalyzed decalithium and reverts to his true Undine form. The Undine is killed by Starfleet security.
- 2409: Hassan's forces control much of the planet Nimbus III. There, he maintains a stronghold within a crashed starship, and runs an underground nightclub known as Shangdu. He dislikes taking orders from Orion women other than Melani D'ian, and keeps them out of his organization.
Missions involved[edit | edit source]
- “The Undying”: The player confronts Hassan in his bar on Nimbus III about the thalaron triggers he sold. Hassan initially suggests he will tell the player who the buyer was, but forces the player and their away team to fight in Shangdu's combat arena. After defeating all opponents in the arena, chasing Hassan into orbit, and defeating Hassan's dreadnought over Nimbus III, the player can decide whether to kill Hassan or take him prisoner. The player also learns from Hassan's personal files that he delivers prisoners and abductees to a Tal Shiar agent he refers to as "One Eye". Temporal Recruits discover a video of Krog attempting to buy the thalaron triggers from Hassan; he mistakes her for a Reman, and tells her he has already sold them to her associates.
- “Jabberwocky”: A Prophet takes the form of Hassan.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Some players have drawn comparisons between Hassan and the character Kingpin of Spider-Man fame; both being bald, heavyset antagonists controlling powerful criminal organizations.
- The choice players have with respect to Hassan's fate is similar to the choice given with Farek in “Operation Gamma”. Neither choice has any impact on the story progression however.
