Only one out of six planets is settled upon. Although the system is located within the Cardassian Union it is claimed by the neutral New Link and their servants/allies, the Alpha Jem'Hadar. The system is quarantined by Starfleet since 2409.
System Description[edit | edit source]
The Orias system has six planets. Of those worlds, one is M-Class. Orias III is uninhabited, and for decades was used by the Obsidian Order for training exercises and as a detention site. In 2371, the order used the system as the location of a fleet intended to enter the Gamma Quadrant and attack the Founders' Homeworld. The attack failed, and the Obsidian Order ships were destroyed by a Jem'Hadar counterattack.
Missions involved[edit | edit source]
- “The New Link”: After having learned the secret location of the New Link, the player arrives in the Orias System and has to fight several Alpha Jem'Hadar vessels as well as disable the defenses of an orbiting space station. After Laas is defeated on the surface of Orias III, the player follows the New Link's request of being left alone and places a quarantine buoy in the system.
Missions formerly involved[edit | edit source]
- “The New Link (original)”: In 2409, Starfleet send a taskforce, led by the U.S.S. Indianapolis, into the system to remove the threat posed by an alliance between the True Way and the Alpha Jem'Hadar. Both the True Way space forces as well as the Indianapolis are destroyed and when Starfleet beams a team down to rescue the Indianapolis's survivors, the leaders of the Jem'Hadar, First Lamat'Ukan, and Laas of the New Link, are killed, thus prompting the Changelings to sever all ties with the True Way and entering a pariod of isolation.
