USS Proteus

Visit Site

Millions of years ago, powerful civilizations, giants of their time, walked among the stars. Although their footprints have mostly faded with the winds of time, the discovery of the Reliquary has given a glimpse into the distant past and the furthest reaches of the Gamma Quadrant from the time of its creators all the way up until its last monitoring equipment failed a mere thousands of years ago.

In response to the discovery of the Reliquary, the USS Proteus, home of the Advanced Science, Technology & Research Activity (ASTRA), has been dispatched to the Gamma Quadrant to track down some of the most extraordinary leads from the Reliquary’s ancient data archives. While out beyond the edge of known space, the USS Proteus is also to extend the hand of friendship to species it encounters through its diplomatic mission-at-large and lay the groundwork for future Federation activity via its the Hammer of Hephaestus marine engineering company. But as the USS Proteus explores ancient worlds, makes first contact with new civilizations, and charts out strange stellar phenomena, there’s something waiting in the darkness of the great unknown.

Lieutenant Raevos Ibaxal
Chief Intelligence Officer

Raevos' current posting aboard the USS Proteus is one he was eager for, and applied for the billet as soon as he learned of it. Being able to serve as Intelligence Officer aboard such a massive ship, and exploring the Gamma Quadrant speaks to the explorer spirit within him, though he knows much of the time will be spent in his office going over briefs and information. By and large, he's fine with this.

Much of Raevos' history is redacted to all but Flag Officers, or those he grants the access to. He is happy to do this to any officer to whom he reports.

The Tale of the Eazal
started September 2, 2018

Long after the Reliquary was abandoned, it continued to watch and observe. It witnessed the rise of powers, and their fall. But, when its last monitoring buoys went offline, the tale of two blossoming civilizations within two hundreds light years of the Bajoran wormhole was left incomplete. One would go onto become the Founders of the Dominion, but the other, an expansive and blossoming humanoid civilization with a passion for culture and science all but vanished. What ever happened to them?
