* For all those who are tired of watching the Na'kuhl failing at everything they try, [[http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/10058533-my-own-worst-enemy My Own Worst Enemy]] is here to remind us all what ''competent'' evil time travelers can do.

* Remember the [[HumanoidAbomination Sphere Builders]]? Turns out they haven't been idle since their defeat in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'': the "Agents of Yesterday" expansion reveals that they've been experimenting with better ways to create [[EldritchLocation Expanses]], and they're just about ready to come back to the Milky Way for round two... this time with new allies in the [[spoiler:Vorgons, Na'Kuhl, Krenim, and Terran Empire]].

They may be the best example of {{Omnicidal Maniac}}s in the whole Star Trek franchise. And they're only just getting started.
** They've also been messing around in the [[Film/StarTrek Kelvin Timeline]], and appear to have turned at least some of the Klingon factions there into proxies, just like they did with the Xindi. Considering how strained Federation/Klingon relations are in that time period, this alliance does ''not'' bode well for anyone living in that universe.
** There's also the Battle of Procyon V (the climatic battle between the Sphere Builders and the Federation), which due to TimeyWimeyBall is constantly replaying itself every time the timeline is tweaked, but with subtle changes each time. What worked for Starfleet in one iteration of the battle may not work in the next one, so they constantly have to be on guard for shifts in the timestream that could turn the tide against them. Even worse, the battle is a perfect case of EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce: if the Sphere Builders ever do manage to prevail, there will be no way to hit the ResetButton because their victory will allow them to create a galaxy-wide Expanse that completely ruins our laws of physics and makes time travel impossible, dooming all that lives to a [[BodyHorror horrific death]].

* The fate of [[spoiler:the Krenim]], as revealed in "Time in a Bottle". [[spoiler:The Imperium fell to a genocidal Vaadwaur invasion that saw nearly the entire species exterminated to ensure their temporal technology could never be used against the Iconians. The only surviving colony worlds, Kyana Prime and its moon, had to shift themselves out of phase with the rest of the universe to escape destruction, and now they're trapped in a terrifying PhantomZone where the slightest malfunction in the system could A) return them to normal space where they would be wiped out within hours, or B) cause them to be LostForever as their pocket of spacetime collapses altogether.]]

* [[TheLegionsOfHell The Fek'Ihri]]. Alleged demons from the Klingon underworld who have returned to avenge Molor's defeat at the hands of Kahless hundreds of years ago. They take many forms, from ghostly apparitions to massive troll-like beasts, and can field fleets of powerful EldritchStarship{{s}} capable of giving the KDF a run for its money. In their introductory appearance ("Blood of the Empire") they bring Qo'noS to its knees, and over the course of the next few missions they nearly conquer the Klingon Empire before the player manages to stop them at the source. But it's hinted in "Mine Enemy" that they aren't done yet and are merely hiding somewhere in Klingon space, waiting for another opportunity to strike...

** It's not much better when you learn ''what'' the source of the creepy gloating is--[[spoiler:It's a HardLight construct (read: "Hologram") working in that CreepyBasement you're stuck in, driven mad by the [[EnergyBeing Devidians]].]]

** ''What Lies Beneath'' was complete NightmareFuel. All throughout the mission, the corridors are so dark you can barely see at all (the optional flashlight doesn't help much), you're assaulted by not-there-before groups of Devidians and these cat-sized spiders, and at the beginning, you and your away team find yourselves not at the level you expected, then next thing you know, the ''doors close and lock behind you''. And that's not mentioning talking to a person through an intercom, suddenly they scream in terror, then silence... and when you force the door open, you find a body with phaser burns so fresh, they're still warm. And your scared tactical officer asks what could have possibly killed her in a locked room...? Sweet dreams!

** ''Slightly'' downplayed in one the game's missions: the Undine still need regular injections to maintain their assumed form, so there is a relatively easy way to test it if you think you might be an Undine, assuming you have time and reliable allies that you think aren't Undine.



* With ''Legacy of Romulus'', we get a new look at the [[spoiler: Elachi]]...and it isn't pretty. [[spoiler: It turns out that they are trying to convert Romulan colonists into creatures like themselves. [[BodyHorror The results]] are anything but pretty and anyone you cannot save [[MercyKill you decide you need to destroy to be merciful]]]].

* One mission in the Romulan faction, Mind Game [[spoiler: forces your captain to undergo Tal'shiar mental reprogramming. You ''can'' resist, but the [[GoodAngelBadAngel will of Empress Sela drowns out your first officer]] and [[ButThouMust in order to continue]], you have to do [[UnwillingRoboticisation some]] [[KickTheDog pretty]] [[FaceHeelTurn awful]] [[PlayerPunch things.]] The worst part is, even if you try to resist, Sela just tells you some reason you can't. [[MindRape Mind Rape]] at its worst.]]
* The first mission of "Undine Advance" (formerly the Undine Front) is merely called "Assimilation", where your Federation captain investigates some unusual Borg activity. [[spoiler: There you find out the Borg have '''assimilated some Undine''', something once thought to be impossible.]] OhCrap.
** At least we stopped them before the knowledge could be transmitted. ''But there's nothing saying it can't happen again...''

* The Featured Episode "Sphere of Influence" [[spoiler:Thanks to dumb luck and disaster, you've tossed yourself into the ''Iconian Gateway System''. Even worse, there's evidence that they've been watching ''everyone'' - the Federation, the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Republic, the Dominion. You've found their plans and what they want to do with everyone, including wiping out everyone in the Sol System, wipe out the Romulans (with the hint that they may kill Empress Sela if they can't brainwash her) and when everyone's conquered, head for the Dominion and destroy them, too. ''They even have gateways in the Delta Quadrant''.]]

** And worse than that? [[spoiler: Them having well explained reasons for ''why'' they're taking each action. The Sol System and Humans? Too creative and hate captivity (in a nice CallBack to The Cage). Klingons? Well they're warrior society has already turned everyone into a walking soldier and ease of taking orders: take control of the Great Houses and install puppet leaders and control them that way. The Romulans? Tried it once, didn't work out. We underestimated them. Not this time, ''eliminate them'' OR get Sela pacified in captivity and send her back as a new Hakeev. The Dominion? Both sides are fighting to a stand still. Do what the Dominion failed to do and take the Alpha and Beta Quadrants and use the resources to take them out (which says everything about [[WellIntentionedExtremist the Dominion]] in hindsight).

Make the servant races terraform the homeworld back to it's native beauty in the cosmic equivalent of making the dog smell his own duty on the rug.]] ''Damn.''
