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.

Recruitment Spotlight

Serving as a Research and Development testbed, the USS Kitsune is a one of a kind Retrofitted Saber Class Refit, equipped with powerful new subsystems and designed to be able to tackle any situation presented to her. Punching and running above her weight class, the USS Kitsune proudly tests the untested.
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.
