Solve codes of varying complexity to gain the required levels of access and control.


The Borg are cybernetic organisms living in a hive mind called The Collective. They replicate by injecting nanoprobes into their victims, causing the victim to form Borg implants that connect their mind to The Collective. The Borg Cube has been temporarily placed in a sleep state leaving you with a small window of opportunity to rescue your crew mates. You will need to find ways to hack into their Borg implants and remove them from The Collective so their humanity can be restored and they can become ex-Borg (xBs).

Completing Projects using Missions

Using the Scout Method of Plan, Do, Review, you can demonstrate your capabilities to your Unit Council once you have completed this Mission.

Use Terrain to record your goals based on the missions you intend to complete during Star Trek: Survival for presentation to and approval by your Unit Council.

Complete any pre-work that might help you to complete the Mission, such as practicing using maps and radios, or doing research into particular concepts that missions mention that you may not be familiar with, or any other technologies or concepts you are curious about that might help you find success.

Complete the mission at Star Trek: Survival 2024.

Get your Starfleet Report Card from this website at the conclusion of the event to summarise your achievements. These accomplishments can be presented to your Unit Council for Project approval and recorded in Terrain to keep track of your progress.
