Star Trek Online has
posted the latest "what would you do?" scenario! The scenario asks what you
would do if you encountered a source of Omega on an alien planet. There is, of
course, a twist! The locals think it's a gift from the gods and will fight you
if you try to take it!
Here's the Kobayashi Maru Scenario:
We're still running strong with our Kobayashi Maru scenarios! This week's scenario is brought to you by JPJappic. Good challenge sir!
Stardate 85138.7. Your ship is cruising at warp five in the final frontier when suddenly your computer screens go black and the Omega symbol appears on every display. Your scanners have detected the presence of an omega particle.
As per Starfleet regulations, the omega particle must be destroyed at all costs and all records of its existence erased from the ship's computers.
You find the particle on a planet in the midst of a heavily populated area. Upon further investigation you find that the pre-warp civilization on the planet below revere this particle as a gift from their gods.
As per your orders, do you destroy the particle at all costs risking the destruction of a species and all of subspace for lightyears or do you continue on your way, disobeying Federation orders and removing all known information about the discovery from your databanks?
