Temporal Beacon item description:

This device is extremely sophisticated and exhibits signs of recent chroniton flux. Activating it results in the holographic display of a being that appears human but is dressed very strangely. He speaks the following message:

"My name is Drimex. I am a member of an elite Temporal Investigations Unit from your distant future that has run afoul of nefarious forces that are attempting to thwart our efforts to repair the effects of key temporal incursions. Contained within this device is a mission briefing for an assignment too dangerous for us to undertake ourselves, as our ranks have been compromised by our enemies. This beacon - and many like it - have been sent out into the time streams in hopes of recruiting brave and steadfast individuals willing to perform these missions on our behalf. Good luck. Tempus Fugit."

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Temporal Beacons of the same type will stack.
  • The Temporal Beacons are not bound and may be freely traded or sold. It is possible to buy individual beacons from the exchange by searching for "beacon" under Personal Equipment / Personal Devices (common rarity).
  • These duty officers are freely tradeable.
  • These duty officers are very hard to distinguish between their Federation and Klingon versions!
  • Gallery of Temporal Duty Officers.
  • "Tempus Fugit" is a Latin phrase which translates as "time flies". It is a reference to a Star Trek: Voyager episode "Relativity", spoken by Ducane, a First Officer of the U.S.S. Relativity.
