Rebellion Summary Preamble Intro Missions Merrol Filler Short Track Long Track

The Rebellion Storyline of EV Nova features a band of plucky Federation-born insurgents that save their nation from the clutches of the Bureau using military conversions of popular civilian ships. Unfortunately, it's quite difficult to access as it has no onboarding except through other storylines.


In the Rebellion intro missions, you save a Federation Councillor from being arrested from the Bureau, then head to a planet under blockade to begin building trust with the Rebellion. After many freight runs, you are reassigned to their intelligence division. Your first possible task is stealing renewed hypergate codes. You are then chosen to ferry an ambassador to the Polaris, but the Rebels base must be defended from an attack fleet. Finally, the ambassador must be taken home and whether her involvement is detected determines the future.

Merrol missions for the Rebels summary: as a 'good' string, the small Federation ships at the travel destinations do attack the pilot.

Intro Missions[]

Merrol Missions[]

  • Jay: Merrol's jovial dock-master. Doesn't like to be disturbed during his time off. Is grateful for the assistance you provide to the Rebellion.
  • Burton: a food wholesaler in the organized Las Vegas marketplace that is willing to sell food to unknown people. Gives a fair bargain.
  • Arpad: an equipment vendor in the disorganized Menin marketplace who is willing to sell with no questions asked. Appears to be a better negotiator than Burton.
  • Anna: a rebel informant who believes her cover has been compromised.
  • Cade 'Sundown' Smart: a "retired" general who is now working for the Rebellion. A brilliant tactician who saved the Federation from the Auroran onslaught after taking the reigns away from his incompetent predecessor. Appears to congratulate you after rescuing an agent.
  • Fiona: a new rebel informant who needs to be inserted into her new job.
