Added DiffLines:

* The entire tragic story of K'mtar's life [[spoiler: a.k.a Alexander Rozhenko]] who was a diplomat from the Federation and tried to get the Great Houses to work together against threats. This got him thrown in Rura Penthe along with his suspicions of the House of Torg. Ultimately, it's clear no one takes him seriously in the Klingon Empire and even his own father [[spoiler: Worf]] considers him a joke. It's not until he [[spoiler: sacrifices his own life and is proven right in all of his suspicions that he earns his father's respect.]]
* The death of Martok's grandson at the bat'leth tournament. You crossed the entire Beta Quadrant and fought through legions of House Torg soldiers only to fail to protect him. It gets worse at his funeral as he died as a warrior but lost all of his potential. [[spoiler: The fact Martok never even got to know his grandson when he comes back doubles the tragedy.]]
* While technically an All-Factions mission [[spoiler: the discovery Martok has been alive this entire time and drugged for decades is both a Heartwarming moment as well as a horrifying one. Everything Martok has worked for all these years has been destroyed by J'mpok and his grandson perished in a cowardly assassination.]]

* "Survivor" [[spoiler:has the player, Agent Daniels and Sela arrive at an abandoned Tal Shiar prison and find evidence that Tasha Yar and the crew of the ''Enterprise''-C is still alive when you hunt down the T'Nae from "Temporal Ambassador". You're given HopeSpot after HopeSpot that, somehow, Tasha is still alive only to learn that Tasha was one of the last to die, passing of old age and that her last request to T'Nae was for her to tell everyone the story of the ''Enterprise''. At the end, Sela, once again in jail, is confronted by a Starfleet officer, who gives her a hologram of Tasha. Sela ends the mission by asking the person "Tell me about my mother...", the same thing Guinian asked Data of in "Yesterday's Enterprise".]]

** And Sela's [[VillainousBSOD reaction]] when she realizes [[spoiler:the destruction of Romulus, and probably the entire Iconian war, are ''all her fault''.]] It's the only moment in the game where she truly loses faith in herself, and for a second you think she might actually [[DrivenToSuicide shoot herself out of despair]].

** In "Painful Omens" [[spoiler:you get to see what caused the Tholians to go after the Na'khul - time travelling Na'khul ''massacred'' a colony of Tholians and their Queen opted for a TakingYouWithMe to gain revenge, but not before telling the other Tholians that the Federation was not to blame.]]

They might have been arrogant, but they were trying to protect other races and those races didn't like it. Even more, it turned out that it was ''Sela's'' fault that they were set on the path that they went on to.]]

* "Butterfly" [[spoiler:has the team decide to use the Krenim weapon to stop the U.S.S. ''Yamato'' from discovering Iconia. It would stop the Iconian War altogether and bring back Romulus. Then, to your horror, you discover that, by doing so, ''the Borg'' have taken over Romulus.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In the same mission there is a point where a Herald dreadnought is too powerful and Tom Paris gives the order to fall back. A Klingon captain says "I can't do that.. Today is a good day to die", as he revs up his engines and does a kamikaze to give everyone else a chance at hitting it.

* For the ground portion of Broken Circle, you will quickly round up a platoon of RedShirts as backup, making the early parts of the mission quite easy. But as you travel between repeated engagements with [[MarathonBoss M'tara]] expect your forces to [[DwindlingParty dwindle]] until it's just [[PlotArmor your usual away team]] again. After that's done, the next map consists of flying through the ruins of [[spoiler: ''your fleet'' which had been so huge at the start of the mission.]]. Your listed objectives are to scan for survivors, but the game cuts you off with instructions to just leave when you try.
