Omega Stabilization is a Mini-game introduced with the mission “Omega Molecule Stabilization”. The game is started when the player attempts to stabilize an Omega molecule. It rewards the player with a Common Omega particle trace on completion. Additional traces and Uncommon, Rare and Very Rare Omega R&D components are awarded for achieving higher scores.

About the omega molecule[edit | edit source]

An omega molecule is a highly unstable particle believed to be the most powerful substance known to exist. With sufficient amounts of boronite the molecule can be synthesized. However, unless properly contained, the molecule can destabilize violently, destroying subspace and rendering warp travel impossible in a large area.

A single Omega molecule was synthesized in the late 23rd Century by the Federation physicist Dr. Ketteract on board a classified research station in the Lantaru sector. The molecule remained stable for a fraction of a second before it exploded, killing 127 leading Federation scientists and consequently rupturing subspace throughout the sector.

Following the discovery of the Solanae Dyson Sphere in the 25th century and subsequent conflict with the Iconians, it was found that the Iconians use Omega molecules to fuel their phenomenally powerful technologies including the Iconian gateway network and the Dyson spheres' ability to 'jump' from one point in space to another instantaneously.

Objective[edit | edit source]

The interface shows a stream of Omega particles, moving from left to right, which the player must collect by moving the bracket (marked with an arrow) up and down. As particles are collected, the molecule shown on the right is stabilized. Each molecule stabilized increases the value of the particles allowing higher scores as more molecules are stabilized. It takes 20 particles to stabilize each molecule.

Scoring[edit | edit source]

The number of points per fragment depends on the number of molecules stabilised so far.

Molecules stabilised Points per fragment
0 5
1 10
2 15
3 20
4 50
5 100

Rewards based on final score. Scores at the higher end of the range have a small chance of dropping an [Omega Shard] or an [Omega Fragment] in addition to the below.

Score range Rewards
2,700 - 2,300 3 x Omega traces +
1 x [Omega Sliver]
2,200 - 2,000 2 x Omega traces +
1 x [Omega Sliver]
1,950 - 1,700 1 x Omega trace +
1 x [Omega Sliver]
1,650 - 1,300 3 x Omega traces
1,250 - 860 2 x Omega traces
840 - 0 1 x Omega trace

Locations[edit | edit source]

During the annual Anniversary Event Q scatters Omega molecules around the galaxy for the player to stabilize, each colored trace appearing in different locations. See individual articles for locations.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • During the mission “House Pegh”, when the player acts to stabilise Omega Molecules before the Iconian base is destroyed, they do so through a variant of the mini-game that rewards no Omega Traces and ends at 100 points.
