Description

In the darkness of space, dozens of lightyears from anything or anyone, one could be forgiven for believing that storm clouds had gathered. The black heavens of space, magnificent on any given day, were made all the more enchanting by the plasma storms irradiating the nebula clouds and particle pockets that made up the outer layer of the phenomenon. Beyond the lightning, the thunderous claps and the solar winds were stars that emitted triple the amount of radiation as elsewhere in the galaxy, subspace rifts that threatened to rip space apart at the seams, and quantum destabilizations that could tear the timeline to pieces. As if dealt a cruel hand by fate itself, the phenomenon known as the Maelstrom throughout the Federation and beyond, seemingly held all the clues as to the mysterious fate of the starship Nogura's former crew. And in true Starfleet fashion, it was up to the ship's new custodians to solve the puzzle.

Thus, on the periphery of the swirling mixture of quantum fissures, gravimetric shockwaves, spatial distortions and twister-like currents of phased plasma energy, the mighty Sovereign-class starship had come to a stand still, silently observing the massive scientific conundrum before it. Once inside, communication with those beyond the boundaries of the phenomenon would likely cease, meaning the crew of the Nogura would be on their own. Yet somehow, somewhere, a signal, decaying in strength with each passing second, called like a siren from the deep, luring the sailors of the starship into the eye of the storm...
