T'Nae.

Just imagine the possible consequences
Walker probably picked her up and did the same thing to her as he did to you. That, or there are two T'naes just like there are (or were) two Tasha Yars.

Then he could have beamed her aboard along with yourself, but she wasn't on that timeship's bridge as the timeline got restored, which means she did travel into the past on board the Enterprise. Which would mean that

He may not have done T'nae and yourself at the same time. Remember, the Pastak is a timeship. He can grab anybody from anywhere at whatever time he wants.

It is a possibility. But seeing that their timeline is getting erased anyway: Why not beam them aboard at the same time if the only objective here is to prevent them from traveling into the past?

While not totally discarding the possibility, I think that the option of alternate T'Nae travelling into the past as well is more likely. Which opens a LOT of questions:
  • Did she survive the battle at Narendra III?
  • Was she taken prisoner as well?
  • Did she survive imprisonment?
  • What did she do afterwards?
  • Did she survive the destruction of Romulus?
  • Where is she now?

This list can be continued even further, she could have offspring like Tasha as well. And if the latter is the case we could be in for a huge surprise in the future, just as Picard was surprised as he met Sela the first time.

True. And an alternate T'nae messing with our timeline is a much more interesting idea. Perhaps worthy of a Foundry mission or two ...

Just wanted to echoe the thoughts of those who appreciate this mission. I played it on Sunday, after what has been a not terribly great week.

I haven't played STO since Christmas, and this anniversary mission was a great reason to do so. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but as the mission was finishing, I realised I had a big goofy smile on my face. There were some great moments in the story (I loved my captain's parallel universe incarnation, and exploring the alternate lives of STO chracters - including my own crew). Of course, by the time I crossed the docking bay taking in the approaching Enterprise-C for the fir, I knew I was in love with this episode. Commanding her was the icing on the cake, even if it was only for a short time.

So thank you, Cryptic, for making me smile on an otherwise depressing day. More great story episodes would be appreciated!

Yes, the voices, and story, funny easter eggs, etc, is all neat. Yes, there were some funny bugs (like my Adapted Maco head with no neck... and my KDF boffs showing all wrong), but there was on specific element that I thought was absolutely great and I REALLY hope to see it used much more widely: The layout of the tunnels is random and different every time you run it. That is a new thing in my experience with STO, and something I can't wait to see more of.
random layout? nah... I made a map: http://www.stowiki.org/File:Map2.png

I've run it several times and it's always had that layout. Now I have seen the accolades in different spots though.... look at the compass rose I made, the doors in the maze have Tholian symbols for north, etc. above them.

I have seen the issue with the mission not completing properly. I have gotten around this by turning in the mission before leaving Azure.
HAIL HYDRA!

So, I'm new to the game and I just finished this mission - but I can't find the uniform you get as a reward nor can I figure out how to get the ship. Any help for a noob? Thanks!

It's not a full uniform but a costume option. The part fall under "chest gear" and "Belt".
