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.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Feature Episode, released on January 30, 2014 as part of the 4 Year Anniversary Event. Until February 27, the mission therefore also rewarded 400 [Anniversary Qmendation]s upon its first playthrough per character.
  • During the Retrieve an EV Suit objective, the mission additionally rewards one of three Solanae Environmental Suits, that remain in the player's inventory. A full set plus 50 Lobi Crystal icon.png can be exchanged at the Lobi Crystal Consortium to obtain one of two upgraded Dyson EV Suits.
  • The EV Suits are determined by the defense option the player chooses, as followed:
  • The same EV Suit can be picked-up multiple times by placing it into the inventory and equipping it on a bridge officer. The suit will respawn instantly on the map as if the player never picked it up in the first place.
  • During the first part of 'Into The Void', there is a chance that the captain of the Dyson will still be alive, though he will be killed shortly by a Voth Stalker. This seems to be limited to engineering captains; for tactical and science, he will already be dead.
