Gateway Station

Spacedock-class • SB-23 • Fourth Fleet

Starbase 23, code-named Gateway Station, is a Spacedock-class space station located on the Federation border to the Romulan Republic and the Independent Romulan Factions. Positioned on the border in the late-2390s, it was designed to replace border infrastructure that dated back to before the Romulan supernova and the collapse of the Romulan Neutral Zone. Gateway Station is now the hub of Starfleet operations in the Midgard Sector, a region that stretches across the territory of the Federation and Republic, as well as the collapsed Neutral Zone and the former territories of the Star Empire of Rator. Its mission is to maintain stability in the area through humanitarian operations and diplomacy with local Romulan factions. It is also the base for scientific operations to explore territories once inaccessible to Starfleet due to treaties with the Romulan Star Empire through survey missions, negotiating access with local powers, and the sharing of scientific knowledge with regional stakeholders.

Gateway Station is the headquarters of Sirius Squadron, whose primary mission is to further Starfleet’s ambitions in the Midgard Sector.

Sirius Expeditionary Squadron

Sirius Expeditionary Squadron, also known as Sirius Squadron, is a squadron centered around the Odyssey-class USS Sirius under the command of Commodore Matt Rourke, based out of Gateway Station in the Midgard Sector on the Federation’s Beta Quadrant frontier. The squadron serves two missions: the secondary mission of supporting the sector-wide responsibilities of the Gateway Station, and its primary mission as a rapid deployment force beyond Federation borders.

In its expeditionary capacity, Sirius Squadron stands ready to deploy outside of Federation territory at short notice to respond to emerging situations across the galaxy. With multiple versatile and powerful ships at its disposal, the squadron is capable of operating independently and without support for extended periods, and is flexible enough to face a range of missions, including under volatile circumstances where objectives and conditions can quickly change.

Outside of such deployments, the squadron maintains readiness in case of need, and supports Gateway Station’s operations. From its HQ, its ships pursue Starfleet’s mission to maintain regional stability through diplomatic and humanitarian operations and pursue avenues of scientific research and exploration into the former territories of the Old Romulan Star Empire. Since the escalation of tensions with the Klingon Empire and their interest in the territory of the fallen Star Empire, Sirius Squadron has been a cornerstone of protecting both the Federation border, and Starfleet’s allies in the Romulan Republic.

‘I thought you were going to talk to him.’ Draven returned from the replicator to pass the cold pack over to Rhade, slumped back on the sofa in the Romulan’s quarters. ‘I did.’ Rhade pressed the pack to his lip with a faint hiss. He’d bitten the inside of his mouth somewhere inside the [...]

The rumour mill on Gateway was working overtime; Rhade barely beat the crowd to the main security office.

‘I told you, we didn’t follow Voler’s every move.’ The elder Romulan woman who’d answered most of the questions when Rhade originally came down to the refugee section with Kowalski didn’t look best pleased at being asked again. ‘If he had friends, contacts, people he might have gone [...]
