The crew hears an transporter beam and rematerializes on the bridge of their ship.

Dark Legacies provides greater insight into elements and characters used in my Iconian War Anthology entry: Glimmer of Hope, for those who enjoyed it.
Why do I still play and put money into STO?

    Here we are... I admit this is probably my least favorite episode because of the first few maps- I've never been able to get the redesign working the way I want it to.

    Summary: This is a good mission in the series although there were several locations in the dialogue that need work on spelling. The number of errors I came across almost made it feel as if you were rushing to complete the story. You need to take a look at all the dialogue throughout to make sure there are no errors. I am pretty sure I did not hit you for any Canadian spelling versus American English but if I did you can ignore those and resolve the others. The battles were tough but fun throughout with a few that were very tough in places. The map designs are great with a few things here and there that need to be adjusted. Overall I really enjoyed the mission and the series so far. I would definitely recommend this mission and the series to other players.

    Below are some things I noted while playing the mission that I wanted to let you know about. Everything in this write up should be seen as suggestions on ways I felt you could improve certain elements of the mission. They are yours to do with as you see fit.

    Mission Entry Prompt: This is a good use of the entry prompt. I noted no spelling or grammatical errors with this dialogue.

    MAPS:
