Star Trek: The Alpha Frontier
Star Trek: the Alpha Frontier
StarDate 3367 It has been ten standard years since the Khitomer Conference ended the Praxis Crisis and brought to a close 70 years of Cold War between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire.
Over these past ten years, a period of peace has settled around the once-turbulant Klingon-Federation border and Romulan-Federation Neutral Zone. For the first time since the Constitution-Class starships started their Five-year missions, the Federation Council has directed StarFleet to begin a new exploration mission beyond the Federation territory into the Alpha Quadrant. A new fleet of Constellation-Class Cruisers is being constructed at shipyards and fleetyards throughout the Federation with a mandate to, ”Explore strange, new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before.”
Even at this early stage of the Alpha Frontier Missions, StarFleet has encountered powerful interstellar nation-states in the Ferengi Alliance, and the Cardassian Union. In addition to these newly encountered civilizations, expeditions from the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Star-Empire and the Orion Syndicate have also begun to explore the unclaimed sectors beyond this new Frontier.
