The Foundry for Star Trek Online gives players a chance to create and share their very own stories with the world, and during the month of May, four of these stories were spotlighted. These Spotlight Missions were designed by members of the Star Trek Online community and are great playable examples of what you, too, can add to the Star Trek Online universe.
