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.

Cardassia took advantage of both the Federation’s distraction, and the Breen’s constant failures, and restored its pre-war borders by reclaiming half a dozen systems from the Breen Confederacy. Unable to fight off the Cardassians, the Breen turned to the Federation for help, who quickly denied the Breen, citing several unfortunate conflicts with the Breen in the last ten years. The Breen had anticipated this, and already had a plan of their own. Days later, a new power emerged in the Inconnu Expanse. The Breen, along with the Tzenkethi Coalition, Talarian Empire, and the mysterious Ravagers, joined forces under the Alrakis Pact.

Between the new and uncontested Alrakis Pact, the Cardassian Union’s renewed patriotism, the Ferengi’s reformed economic initiatives, 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.

  • Visit the simms of Task Group Hermes, spreading throughout the quadrant.
  • Learn about the Task Force’s history, the current conflicts, and more.
  • Apply for your own command in Task Force 72.
  • Accept a priority mission from Task Force Command and push back the tide of the Alrakis Pact.

Recruitment Spotlight

Something strange is happening in the Inconnu Expanse. Deep Space Seven has been destroyed, our ships are encountering resistance, and our colonies are being terrorized. Most importantly, we don’t know why. Eager for answers, we have called on the USS Victorious-A, a Starfleet Intelligence asset, to seek out what is really happening in the Expanse. Led by Captain Aaris Parry, the Victorious will be thrust deep into the Expanse, hopefully to one day return alive.
While the Cardassian Union is held back from expansion in the north-east, it retakes grounds in the south-west from the Breen. These are the stories of a patriot ship that serves the idealism of The Union, secretly known as the Order of 12. The Union made strong political standpoints in the Detapa Council. They made publically statements that the Cardassian Union has been held back from regaining the client planets that they had lost in the Dominion war. CUS Milithra is one of the key pieces of the Union, their Commander, Gul Diar is still bitter over the results of the Dominion War and the weak deals made to end the Gavarian Wars. The Union is grateful towards the Federation, without their interference they would never have gained such a great piece on their board.
The pieces of the are being moved into place, ready for the checkmate. The Inconnu Expanse is the chessboard in turmoil. The Breen, the Tzenkethi, the Ravagers, the Federation... all their pieces are on the board. The USS Magellan is a new piece on the board. Who loses their King first? The destruction of Deep Space 7 was only the beginning...
