Activating this consumable device will allow you to send Duty Officers on a single Temporal Research assignment, garnering large experience, dilithium and R&D materials as rewards.


Temporal Research Assignment is not bound and can be traded, mailed, sold or purchased from the Exchange.
At the Exchange, it can only be found under "All" tab with "Any quality" selected as rarity type. Choosing Common rarity will not result in successful search. When typing keyword such as "research assignment" in Search window, it can be mixed up with [Mirror Incursion Research Assignment], which has the same icon, but isn't part of the same assignment set.
