Task Force 72

For much of the Federation, the end of the Dominion War in 2375 signaled a return to peace, prosperity, and exploration. Occupation forces withdrew, leaving colonists behind to rebuild their lives in the midst of fire and ash. While the Cardassian and Breen governments fell silent to regroup, Starfleet resumed its primary mission of exploration. New areas of space, such as the Gavarrian Corridor and Inconnu Expanse, provided new wonders for Starfleet.

Starfleet wasn’t the only one interested in these new ventures. The Breen, Cardassians, Romulans, and even the Tzenkethi stood by to deny the Federation access to these sectors, seeing the new space as means to expand, regroup, and resupply. But none expected the sudden appearance of indigenous species to oppose all of the major powers.  

With everyone distracted, the Cardassian Union made several quick moves, restoring its pre-Dominion War borders and reclaiming half a dozen systems from the Breen, all the while maintaining a second front against the struggling Romulan Star Empire in the Gavarian Corridor. With the Breen Confederacy on the verge of collapse, the Cardassian Union’s renewed patriotism, the Ferengi’s reformed economic initiatives, the Ravagers forcing all powers out of the Inconnu Expanse, and many other powers exhibiting uncertain characteristics, the Federation must do what it can to maintain the status quo and keep the entire Quadrant from total destabilization.

In 2270, the Starship Providence vanished without a trace en route to Starbase L-5 where First Officer Greyson and Helmsman McGavin were assigned to command a brand-new exploratory Starship. Its fate has long been a mystery to the Federation, with no trace of either ship or crew ever discovered. Starfleet conducted memorials, the crew’s loved ones grieved and for years, people wondered what had happened to such a prestigious ship of the line. Now, in the year 2389, the old mystery is finally solved as the Providence emerges a century out of its time…but the galaxy is very different to how they left it.
