It's been a long while since Star Trek Online captains had to fear the Undine. This mysterious race has moved off of the radar as the Federation and KDF have explored the Solanae Dyson Sphere, fought back against the Borg and the Tholians, and sought allies upon New Romulus.

The past couple of weeks I've been cursed with a flu that made it virtually impossible to play any game, let alone Star Trek Online.
