"Relics" is a Foundry mission for Star Trek Online written by Kirkfat. It was featured in the STO blog's "Spotlight on the Foundry" feature on October 19, 2012, and was also the winner of Foundry Challenge #4. It is playable by Federation captains of any level.Starfleet Intelligence receives word of an increased Klingon presence on the strategically unimportant world Minkara V in the Otha System in the Eta Eridani block. The player is dispatched to investigate and fights off a few Klingon ships, but your ship takes damage and has to hide from their reinforcements in a nearby nebula while Damage Control sees to repairs.Inside the nebula you discover a derelict ship belonging to a long-extinct race, and inside the ship is a Human Popsicle kidnapped from Earth in 1537. You thaw him out and, after convincing him you and your ship's counselor Shree aren't demons or agents of the Inquisition, learn that he is a Lithuanian mathematician and scientist named Johann Rymut. You explain where and when he is and hand him off to Shree for his long recovery.You return to Minkara V and paste the Klingons' reinforcements, then discover they're doing some sort of archaeological dig on the planet surface. You beam down and blast your way to what turns out to be a sister artifact to the Guardian of Forever, the Guardian of Balance. It states there is a disturbance in the timeline and that the only way to correct it is to send Johann Rymut back to 1537.
