Task Force 9
Barzan Sector Operations
The Barzan Sector is on the rimward end of the Federation’s border with the Ferengi Alliance, home to the eponymous Barzan system and Barzan Wormhole, which is the only stable connection between Federation space and the Delta Quadrant. As such, it plays host to Task Force 9’s headquarters: Starbase 90, aka Guardian Station, which serves as the last line of defense for the wormhole from the perspective of its Alpha Quadrant defense and the first line of defense for the Alpha Quadrant from anything that might come through from the other side. This sector anchors Task Force 9’s operations in this area of space, which also stretch into the neighboring Trill and Chrysalia Sectors. The Federation’s territory here intersects with neutral space near the Ionite Nebula, which is a major strategic barrier between Breen and Tzenkethi territory and the Federation, and continues down along the Tzenkethi border.
The Federation’s priorities in the Barzan Sector are:
- Protecting the Barzan Wormhole from Alpha Quadrant threats.
- Protecting the Alpha Quadrant from Delta Quadrant threats.
- Managing the diplomatic situation with the Tzenkethi and nearby neutral worlds.
- Maintaining the Federation’s defensive installations in the region.
The Dvorak is open for new game managers. If you are interested, please contact the TFCO. A science ship, the Dvorak has been assigned to chart the Ionite Nebula to determine how Breen raiders have been penetrating this mass of gas and dust.
The Spartan is open for new game managers. If you are interested, please contact the TFCO. This Saber-class frigate has been assigned to routine patrols along the Kzinti border, keeping Federation colonies safe from their predations.
