Mission Text[edit | edit source]

<rank>, we have discovered a station near the center of the Solanae Dyson sphere that controls the station's ability to "jump" to other areas of space, utilizing the vast amounts of Omega particles it generates as fuel.

This could be disasterous for the Delta Quadrant. If the reaction is not perfect, vast areas of subspace would be damaged, rendering space travel in that region almost impossible.

Our intel indicates that the Voth intend to take control of the station and jump the sphere back to their space. We cannot allow this to happen.

Report to Joint Command. We'll need your help to stop this.

Goal[edit | edit source]

Go to Dyson Sphere Gateway in the Beta Quadrant, and then proceed to Dyson Joint Command.

This is a single player mission.
