Threats linger around every corner…


Over a decade after the most devastating attack on Federation soil since the Dominion War, Starfleet has changed. Gone are the care free days of scientific exploration and diplomatic overtures. Instead, the Federation has sealed its borders and limits contact with those beyond them, its mighty fleet aggressively protects vast swathes of territory from threats both internal and external. With a focus on developing Starfleet into a stronger military presence, technological advancements have significantly enhanced the operational capacity of vessels that are long past their usual hull life. Among those to get a new lease on life, the Sovereign-class USS Nogura.

Once believed lost with all hands far beyond Federation space, the Nogura eventually found its way back into Federation hands and was returned to Deep Space 5 where she now undergoes a massive refit to bring her up to modern specifications. On the eve of her relaunch, one of her former commanding officers takes the helm once again for a dangerous mission to explore an area of space known as the Maelstrom in search of clues as to Nogura's past.

Located deep in the Alpha Quadrant the Maelstrom is a realm of danger and intrigue on the edge of Federation, Breen, and Cardassian Space. Most of the region seems designed to kill the novice explorer. Stars emit triple the amount of radiation as elsewhere in the galaxy, subspace rifts threaten to rip space apart at the seams, and quantum destabilizations can tear the timeline to pieces. When the threat of the Romulan Supernova emerged in the 2380s, the Federation withdrew Starfleet forces and left the worlds of the Maelstrom to fend for themselves. Now, the Maelstrom holds all the clues as to the fate of the Nogura's former crew, and it is up to her new custodians to solve the puzzle.

Deila took a deep breath, drawing on her years of Starfleet training to quell the flurry of emotions she felt. The shuttle that had carried her from Starbase 210 finally docked inside the Nogura's shuttlebay, a final reminder that her life was heading in a new direction.
