Greetings Captains!!! The STO Report is LIVE! Let’s get started
Season 8, Dev Blog #1 Live!
The Romulan Republic has a long-range sensor grid in on the edge of Tau Dewa, and it’s in a better position to get a look at the area. But what they’re getting doesn’t make much sense, either. There’s high metallic content, including massive amounts of boronite. Since that mineral isn’t normally found in asteroids, I don’t think it’s a normally occurring phenomenon. We’re also picking up sarium, carbon-60, kelbonite and even some alloys.
The presence of the alloys would make me say that it’s an artificial construction, and there’s enough kelbonite to block long-range scans. But it’s too big for the simple explanations. It’s bigger than any planet I’ve ever seen. It’s bigger than some star systems!
Barclay says it’s a Dyson sphere, and he might be right. Can we get someone from the SCE team at the Jenolan Dyson Sphere to take a look at these readings? I’d like an expert opinion, and the engineers there have been studying their Dyson sphere for forty years, ever since the Enterprise-D found it and Captain Scott.

Starbase UGC Publishes First Mission In Foundry Series
Cerberusfilms, and Starbase UGC.com have announced that they are releasing a 6 part Foundry Mission Series titled Purity, with the first episode, Purity: Of Denial being released back on 10/1, at 12 Noon PDT. Here’s the trailer for the episode:
(Mission will be available for all level 31+ Federation and Fed Aligned Romulan Captains to play)
The Federation has been in the throes of war on multiple fronts for multiple years and Starfleet has directed its priorities from exploration and science to efforts to sustain its military machine in all sectors of the quadrant.
Exploratory missions are delegated to under-qualified personnel with little or no oversight by Starfleet Command. Their missions have also begun to include the acquisition of resources to aid in the war effort at any cost.
Now rumors have surfaced of a low ranking Admiral who may be taking advantage of the situation and Admiral Kardena of the Starfleet Exploratory Division has finally gotten the authorization to launch an investigation.
Now what he needs is a ship, with an able crew.
This mission begins at the Malon System in the Beta Ursae Sector Block.
(To play this Foundry mission, log onto a level 31+ Federation or Fed Aligned Romulan character, open your Mission Journal (J), click on ‘Foundry’ tab at the top, and then the ‘Spotlight Missions’ tab on the left. You’ll be able to accept the mission from this tab.)
The next episode, Purity: Of Thought will release 10/8
