“Captain Soolin’s log, stardate 98876.76.
After investigating the damage on the Federation’s orbital starbase we discovered proof of an experiment gone wrong. It appears the scientists were intentionally scuttling the base trying to prevent a containment breach. Unsure if the source is a lifeform, or something viral or mechanical. Prior to our arrivial, the scientists had already left in haste in several runabout class ships, with different destinations.
I am currently in pursuit of one runabout which fled towards Klingon space. It left a very faint warp trail with indications of some sort of engine damage. It appeared as if it was heading towards Drozanna, but then changed course towards Qo’Nos. Halfway the trail stopped and apparentyly never entered the Qo’Nos Sector.”
“Captain Soolin’s log, supplemental.
We searched all nearby sectors around Qo’Nos and detected a faint Federation emergency signal on a forgotten world deep in Klingon space. No response but we can confirm several scientists have beamed down. I don’t understand why they fled Federation space for the Klingon Empire. I am leading an away team to the surface to recover them and find some answers.
Welcome back to Search for Soolin, April edition!
Your job is to “find” the location shown by posting a picture matching the one above as close as possible. There are hints given in the story where to go, and this challenge is open to all ranks and all factions in the 44th. Post your picture in this thread.
To take a picture you can either use PrntScrn or type /screenshot in your chatbar. You can find the picture in your Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots folder.
If you post the right location you earn 200,000 ec, plus the Search for Soolin forum ribbon!
As a bonus, you can rescue the scientists. In addition you will find that this location is a handy map for completing future Endeavors which require you to do x-damage on ground, and is much more convenient than either Nimbus or Defera. It will save you a lot of needless trekking across the stars.
This event runs untill April 22nd’s “patch Thursday”, after it will be archived in the Activities sub-forum.

“Mel here. I’m at the place, but Soolin’s gone.”
“I don’t know where she went. She’s not. Here.”
“Oh, no way. You don’t send me down to this asscrack of a system and then get to tell me to ‘keep looking.’ You want to find her, you fucking look for her.”
“Go blow a goat. I’m out of here.”

Mel’s accompanying away team party observes from nearby.
Tellarite: “The Universal translator is malfunctioning”
Vulcan: “It is not. You are experiencing human colorful metaphores. They are part of the captain’s repertoire and an integral part of this crew’s communications protocol.”
Ferengi: “What’s a goat and where can I buy one?”

Serving under Mel can be a…learning experience.
The ones who stick around get used to her.
