USS Pioneer (Archive): Mission 1 – Operation: Shadow Strike

Dominion forces have reclaimed a secret Ketracel-white on a rogue planet nestled deep in a Mutara class nebula. Previously unknown to Alliance forces at the end of the Dominion War, this facility has helped temporarily jumpstart Ketracel production and, in turn, an increase in Jem'Hadar forces. The facility needs to be located within the nebula and destroyed.

Mission Description

A rogue planet, named Saxue by the Dominion, was a former Ketracel-white production facility during the height of the Dominion War. Located in a calm pocket deep in a Mutara class nebula, Saxue was, by Dominion War standards, a minor production facility. However, with the current crisis, it has enough manufacturing capability to jump-start the Jem’Hadar forces into unmanageable numbers.

The Pioneer, after serving with distinction in the Dominion War, again finds itself with the difficult task of facing the Jem’Hadar in a renewed conflict. Their objective is clear: go behind enemy lines and enter the nebula, locate and confirm the facilities existence, and if possible, destroy it by any means necessary.
