The Solanae Dyson Sphere story arc is a chain of cross-faction missions available to all factions.

The story arc serves as an introduction to the Solanae Dyson Sphere Adventure Zone. After an attempt to use the restored Iconian gateway on New Romulus goes wrong, players are forced to reactivate the whole Iconian gate network to bring their people home. One such gate has appeared in the Jouret System, inside Republic territory. At the same time, the Jenolan Dyson Sphere, discovered by Starfleet several decades earlier, has disappeared.

The plan to scuttle the new gate changes when the U.S.S. Enterprise detects omega molecules on the other side. What you find there is nothing short of marvelous - another Dyson sphere, on the verge of the Delta Quadrant. But you are not the only one to find it.
