Mission: Tenebris Torquent
- [Ketracel White] x20
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Arriving at Havas-Kul, they find the planet abandoned but with significant subterranean development and technology. The atmosphere in the tunnels isn't breathable so the team don EV Suits before beaming down. Shortly after establishing their basecamp, the team is attacked by a Hur'q and fall through the caverns. Now separated, the player works their way through the tunnels learning more about the Hur'q. While the player manages to escape further encounters with the Hur'q that attacked the team, and meet up again with their officers, Bashir and Garak, most of the crewmen from the Defiant are picked off one by one.
Eventually the player gathers the data necessary for Bashir to deduce that the fungus the Hur'q depended upon, which the Dominion removed, was a precursor of Ketracel White. This is then confirmed by the Female Changeling who beams down with Weyoun, Loriss, Dukan'Rex, and some guards. After admitting that her attempt to enslave the Hur'q made them go wildly out of control, Odo reveals himself (hidden amongst Garak's equipment) and challenges her. The Female Changeling orders everyone, including Odo, executed. Garak counters with his own Hur'q signalling device; calling the Hur'q not to Havas-Kul, but Empersa.
Suddenly, the Hur'q from earlier arrives and attacks the Female Changeling, killing her. The team then are forced to take out the Hur'q. Weyoun is determined to carry out the orders to kill them, especially since his Founder is dead. Loriss and Dukan'Rex side with Odo, winning over the Jem'Hadar guards. The team escape through some Hur'q ships in orbit before proceeding to Empersa.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Tenebris Torquent was released on June 5, 2018 as part of the Victory is Life expansion.
- The episode title, Tenebris Torquent, is Latin for dark twist (or an approximation there on). This mirrors the on-screen message after the anti-gravity tunnels referring to dark, twisting passages.
- Garak mentions how he is not fond of dark, narrow passages; referencing his claustrophobia and time in Internment Camp 371. (By Inferno's Light)
- As the Hur'q "must not like antigravity", running into the antigravity shafts and holding there for a few seconds will result in the Mutant shrouding itself and running away, skipping combat entirely.
- The second data crystal the player needs to collect is not found on the ground level, like the other crystals, but can be accessed via the antigravity zone which leads to a series of ducts above the normal corridors.
- The fates of Crewmen Ishimura, Kane, Weir, and Williams reflect the Star Trek redshirt trope: being previously unmentioned low ranking crew who are rapidly killed off to add drama. Their fates in being picked off one by one in a dark, hostile environment also mirror the fate of the engineering team in the DS9 episode Empok Nor. Each also appears to be a reference to the horror, or sci-fi horror genre. Similarly, the accolade for discovering Williams' body ("Game over, man!") is a quote from the movie Aliens.
- After everyone warps out, the screen fades to black and the words 'To Be Continued...' are shown.
