Mission: Second Wave/Walkthrough

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Start by talking to Captain Karen Andrews in OPS. She'll direct you to go find and talk to the diplomats, who are either in Quark's or somewhere around the promenade. Some of them will have optional objectives, detailed below. After finding and talking to all of them, she will tell you to find the missing speaker, who is in a "quiet spot" (the Bajoran temple) on the promenade. Once this is completed, you can move on to the next section, Discuss the Borg Threat.

Optional Objectives[edit | edit source]

There are several optional objectives during the first portion of this mission. For Fed-aligned characters, they provide no significant rewards other than easier completion of the diplomatic conference, during which you will have a Mission Completion option when talking to each of the ambassadors. Without this option, you will otherwise need to fall back on dialog options unlocked by your current diplomatic rank.

However, for KDF-aligned, these optional objectives must be completed in order to successfully complete the conference.

(Optional) Diplomatic Distractions[edit | edit source]

Offered by Surah in Quark's:

  • Talk to Quark (the text incorrectly references Hadron) and persuade him to give you a Holodeck slot if you can convince one of the patrons to give up theirs.
  • Talk to the three patrons in Quark's. The third one, no matter what order you talk to them, will be Zar, will offer to give you her/his slot, if you can find a buyer for an inventory of Self Sealing Stem Bolts. (When in a team, it seems to be broken if this is done by different team members. It works ok if the same team member speaks to all three bar patrons.)
  • Go to the shipyard on the west side of the Promenade. Captain Va'Kel Shon will be happy to take them.
  • Return to Zar in Quark's to report.
  • Approach Quark about giving you the slot. However, the Ferengi will want to have a fee 10,000 Gold-Pressed Latinum icon.png to transfer the slot to you. At 2,000 Gold-Pressed Latinum icon.png you can get an accolade "Lobes for Business." You can barter to lower the fee to 100 Gold-Pressed Latinum icon.png. If you don't have that much GPL, play some Dabo to generate it.
  • Return to Surah.

(Optional) Home away from Homesick[edit | edit source]

Offered by Elim Garak on the lower floor of the promenade:

[Bajoran Distilled Kanar] is character-bound on pickup and therefore unavailable from the Exchange. The regular [Cardassian Kanar] can't be used to complete this mission.

(Optional) USS Belfast Duty Officer Assignments (FED)[edit | edit source]

Offered by Captain Va'Kel Shon in the shipyard, to Federation players only:

These duty officer assignments do not count towards the running total of 20 allowed assignments. If you currently have 20 assignments running, they are just included like Sick Bay assignments.

If for some reason, Captain Shon does not offer you one or more of these assignments, check the Personal tab of your Assignments page on your Duty Officer menu. They may have been added there already even though you never accepted them directly from the Captain.

(Optional) S'taass Duty Officer Assignments (KDF)[edit | edit source]

Offered by S'taass in the eastern Preparation Room, to Klingon players only:

These duty officer assignments do not count towards the running total of 20 allowed assignments. If you currently have 20 assignments running, they are just included like Sick Bay assignments.

If for some reason, S'tass does not offer you one or more of these assignments, check the Personal tab of your Assignments page on your Duty Officer menu. They may have been added there already even though you never accepted them directly from the Captain.


Discuss the Borg Threat[edit | edit source]

In order to complete these objectives, you either need to have reached the diplomatic rank of ambassador or resolved the above mentioned optional objectives. FED/FED-ROM officers are allowed two Diplomacy attempts, KDF/KDF-ROM officers will have no such choices regardless of their marauding rank. Note: In order to take a seat. You must holster your weapon "H", then target one of the chairs and "fire" at it (left mouse). Alternatively you can target with your right mouse button.

Convince Cardassia to Join the Fight[edit | edit source]

Cardassia cannot be convinced until the optional mission "Home away from Homesick" is done with success before the conference, by offering the Bajoran-distilled Kanar.
  • Choose the following conversation options:
  1. What about your people...
  2. [Mission Completion]

Convince Defera to Join the Fight[edit | edit source]

Defera cannot be convinced unless the optional mission "Diplomatic Distractions" is completed with success before conference OR you have a Diplomatic level high enough.
  • Choose the following conversation options:
  1. This isn't about balance...
  2. [Mission Completion]

Convince Starfleet to Join the Fight[edit | edit source]

  • Choose the following conversation options:
  1. I thought mutual protection was one of the tenets on which the Federation was founded.
  2. [Mission Completion]

Convince the Klingon Empire to Join the Fight[edit | edit source]

  • Choose the following conversation options:
  1. You talk about honor...
  2. Is it honorable...
  3. As an empire you are strong, but is the quadrant strong without you? The Borg will not take sides; they oppose everyone.
  4. Our needs are shared. If any single planet falls to the Borg it will only make them stronger.
