Welcome to Dark Frontiers
Over a decade after the Dominion War, the United Federation of Planets stands stronger than ever as a beacon of democracy, enlightenment, and interstellar cooperation in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Advances in technology and prosperity brought on by a post-war expansion boom have positioned the Federation and her Starfleet as a major galactic power going into the 25th Century. Away from this bright center, though, there are shadows and ripples of uncertainty. Starfleet must work diligently to protect this future for the Federation, ensuring that the values of the Federation and her citizens are safeguarded against the forces of chaos, standing as a barrier between civilization and the Dark Frontiers.
On the Neutral Zone, the Seventh Fleet has the weighty task of monitoring the rapidly-destabilizing Romulan Star Empire. On the one hand, the Hobus Supernova destroyed the Romulan central government, leaving various factions scrambling for control, but on the other hand the collapse of the Imperial ministries and infrastructure has allowed client states and conquered races to emerge from their oppression and start to join the galactic stage. Based in the Sierra Sector, Starbase Sierra 6, USS Lancelot, and the USS Vanguard must navigate this complex situation, to promote peace, reach out to these emerging races, and protect the Federation’s interests.
On the other side of Federation Space, the 12th Fleet has been assigned to exploratory endeavors in the space between the Ferengi, Cardassians, and Tzenkethi, which is now under Federation influence. Bearing a torch into these unknown regions, Starfleet elements in this region have been tasked with finding allies, identifying threats, and otherwise illuminating the darkness. Based in the Cyngus Sector, the USS Achilles and her survey group are the first Federation ships in this area, truly going where no one has gone before.
These three writing groups present excellent opportunities for character development, explorations of Star Trek canon, and a firm commitment to producing excellent Science Fiction. Consider joining one of our sims, if you would like to be part of our journey along the Dark Frontiers.
