The Gamma Quadrant Awaits

« Back to Mission Groups


An aging Galaxy class cruiser that survived the war, sent out for one last major mission to explore some of the far reaches of the Gamma quadrant. With a brash commanding officer that has ruffled a few feathers at Starfleet Command, the assignment for the Solaria is supposed to be more of a punishment than an opportunity as the crew are sent into the wilderness to try and stay out of commands way. But what weird and wonderful things will they find along the way?

Episode 1: The Gamma Quadrant Awaits...

Post Count: 43

Solaria limps through the wormhole having had a number of engine troubles since leaving Starbase 565, her reputation seemingly preceding her as she arrives at DS11 to little fanfare despite the TF's recent losses. It seems like no one particularly wants the ship, nor her Captain, in the area. The crew are given as much assistance as possible so that they can get the ship up to full operational capacity in a bid to get them as far away from trouble as possible. But trouble is always just around the corner for the crew of this aging Galaxy-class cruiser...

Episode 2: Lady Luck

Post Count: 67

Lady luck never seems to smile on the crew of the Solaria. After a seemingly disastrous first contact with the Rakhar people, the ship travels to her next destination via the Moray Nebula. Before entering the Mutara-class nebula, Captain Azulas orders the crew to evacuate much of the lower decks and baton down the hatches for a potentially rough ride. With the crew prepared to cross the point of no return, they are shocked when the Lexington appears with orders for the crew to return home to New Bajor.

What will await them when they return to their home port? Will Lady Luck finally give them a break?

Episode 3: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Post Count: 92

All is well aboard the brand new USS Nogura, the first vessel to be constructed in the Gamma Quadrant. Captain Azulas finally feels settled once again, Lieutenant Rashkae has a fully functioning science suite and Lieutenant Yole finally has all the supplies she needs. With everything seemingly going to plan for once, the crew receive their new orders.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the whereabouts of a Consortium fugitive leads an away team to the surface of Bopak I, the past site of a now infamous battle between the Nogura and Consortium forces. As the investigative team follow their leads, the main mission gets under way.

With terraforming well under way in the Kylata system the crew of the Nogura are ordered to respond to a request for help when the scientists running the project run in to several problems with key systems. When the Away Team arrives however, there is a distinct feeling of tension, as if they are hiding something. Whilst the team render the required assistance, Azulas orders some discreet enquiries in an effort to discover the reason for the tension from the scientists.

Things take a disturbing twist when a member of the team meets with an 'accident' and ends up in a coma in sickbay. Captain Azulas uses her authority to suspend all operations on the planet until an investigation has been carried out, but things take a more sinister turn when one of the scientists is found dead in his quarters...

Episode 4: Whispers In the Dark

Post Count: 26

Four weeks on from the quarantine of Kylata and the loss of the terraforming team, the Nogura remains on patrol in the outlands of Federation controlled space when the ship finally arrives in the nearby Nerey'n system to scout for further possible colony sites. Unbeknownst to the crew, a Federation archaeology team is on the fourth planet in the system and they contact the Nogura with information about a discovery that could have quadrant wide repercussions...

Meanwhile, word reaches the Nogura that a child has gone missing aboard a Federation starship near the wormhole. When it becomes apparent that the child has not only been abducted but also belongs to one of their own, Captain Azulas promises to pull out all the stops to find the child and bring the kidnappers to justice...

Episode 5: In Purgatory's Shadow

After the startling discovery during their previous mission, newly promoted Commodore Azulas leads her crew into the Ophinas star system, the final stop before entering unknown territory beyond Federation controlled space. There, the crew investigate some ancient ruins that lie in the shadow of the planets tallest peak but they are soon presented with a life or death situation when they inadvertently discover a cloaked facility in the side of the mountain. They soon reach the worrying realization that their intelligence was not only wrong, but significantly so. Once again, the crew come face to face with the Consortium fugitive they previously apprehended and are forced to work with him to prevent yet another tragedy...
