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 the introduction of the Freedom’s Legion (a homegrown terrorist group within Federation borders), the Federation must do what it can to maintain the status quo and keep the entire Quadrant from total destabilization.

In 2381, Starfleet sent 3 ships into a tight corridor of space between the Romulan and Cardassian Empires, hoping to explore the vast frontier which reportedly lay beyond it. With the destruction of the Romulan Homeworld, the situation in the Gavarian Corridor became volatile, and Starfleet was forced to abandon it’s holdings. Recently, the Federation has signed an Armistice with both the Romulan and Cardassian Empires, allowing for continued exploration and operations in the Corridor and beyond. Owing to this, Starfleet has sent an advanced force into the Gavarian Frontier, to continue the Federation’s tenets of peaceful exploration, and humanitarian aid. The crew of the USS Boadicea have served with each other for some time, and have been re-assigned from their duties in the Core of the Federation, to aid with the exploration of the Gavarian Frontier.
Since the formation of the Alrakis Pact, protests have begun springing up on the border colony worlds along the Cardassian Union and pack nation borders. The USS Sutherland has been assigned to the area of space to reinforce the position of Starfleet, and to stand guard against those that would tarnish the distinguish reputation of the Federation and its Citizens. Join the USS Sutherland, make your mark in Starfleet History; and leave a lasting impression on all that stand against the Federation.
Deep Space K-17 is a K class station on the Tzenkethi border, originally built following the Federation's war with the Coalition as a monitoring post watching Tzenkethi movements. In the decades since the war, the station has fallen into ramshackles due to the isolationist ideals of the Tzenkethi. Things have changed. The Alrakis Pact is on the rise, with the Tzenkethi on the forefront. Soon things in this quiet forgotten corner of space are going to become quite different.

Objectives

  • Establish a foothold to conduct exploratory, scientific and diplomatic operations within the Inconnu Expanse.
  • Protect Federation interests against threats both external and internal, such as the emerging Freedom’s Legion.
