Taris” is a mission in Star Trek Online available to Federation player characters. It is the fifth mission of the "Romulan Mystery" episode.

Description[]

How much do you know about the destruction of Romulus, <rank>?

The initial explosion did not occur in the Romulus System. It was in the Hobus System, which had planets being mined for decalithium.

The supernova acted counter to almost all we know about this type of phenomena. The initial explosion converted the mass of the planets it consumed into energy, which then traveled through subspace. Ultimately, the Romulus System was destroyed, and along with it, the Romulan homeworld.

Unchecked, the force of this chain reaction detonation could have threatened the entire quadrant. It was Ambassador Spock who sealed the rift by using red matter to create an artificial black hole.

Until recently, the cause of the supernova was a mystery. However, the nascent Romulan Republic, our new ally, has shared information with us that Taris, former Praetor of the Romulan Star Empire, may have been responsible for the Hobus supernova. They attempted to apprehend her, but she escaped through an Iconian gateway.

Recently, the Romulan Republic has discovered new information that could help us track down Taris. We want you to rendezvous with the R.R.W. Lleiset, the new flagship of the Romulan Republic fleet, and provide any assistance you can.

Summary[]

The player travels to the edge of the Hobus system (which is under quarantine due to its explosion in 2387) and rendezvous with the RRW Lleiset. Conferring with Commander Jarok, the player learns that the Romulan Republic believes former Praetor Taris to be responsible for the supernova, and the Llieset’s intelligence officer, Gaius Selan, beams onto the player’s ship to help him/her find Taris.

The player and Selan travel into the system. After taking several scans, they discover all the materials that were used in Taris’s device to detonate Hobus. A “shield” is detected over a large crater and the player scans it, and the IRW Sithesh, a D’deridex-class warbird commanded by Reman Commander Xikalen, arrives to investigate their presence. The player disables the Sithesh in the ensuing skirmish and hides his/her ship in the supernova debris when a warbird commanded by Arranhu arrives to investigate.

Arranhu’s warbird leaves, and the player follows it to Iconia per a suggestion from Selan. He/she destroys the IRW Intrakhu in orbit to gain the command codes for another shield on Iconia’s surface, and Selan disables the shield.

The player and Selan beam down to an underground facility in Iconia, where they find Taris speaking to Arranhu. The player defeats the Reman guards and pursues the two to a gateway. As Taris activates it, a trio of Reman guards push her back and escape through the gateway, and the player captures Taris. He/she beams Taris to the brig on his/her ship and destroys the gateway, beaming up himself/herself when the machine is destroyed.

The IRW Leahval arrives in the vicinity of Iconia. Empress Sela demands that they turn Taris over to her, but she is warded off by the arrival of a Starfleet taskforce led by the USS Belfast, and the player beams Taris over to the Belfast's brig. The Llieset arrives in the area, and Selan beams back to his old ship.
