Current year: 2404



Battle of Sector 001. The USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-E travels back in time to prevent the Borg assimilating Earth and preventing First Contact from occurring.


Federation/Dominion War occurs. Star Fleet loses 1/3 of its combat fleet. The Dominion withdraws to their side of the wormhole following the Treaty of Bajor. Captain Benjamin Sisko joins The Prophets in The Celestial Temple.


The USS Yoritomo is sent by RAdm Kwalin (Star Fleet Intelligence Corps) to recover the lost starship USS Whitney. It's discovered that Kwalin was secretly researching inter-phase technology, a technology banned within the Federation. Upon returning to Starbase 1, an attempt to arrest Kwalin failed as he had already fled. Kwalin was also believed to be involved in the theft of several mothballed Star Fleet ships. "The Juggernaut Incident" occurs, destroying two space stations: one Federation, one Romulan.

Titan System Incident: The Kam'Jahtae Awakening occurs along the Romulan Neutral Zone; the ancient race plans the invasion and conquest of the known galaxy. Further investigation unveils the Kam'Jahtae as a guardian-caste of the ancient Hur'q species. the The Kam'Jahtae are eventually defeated by the forces of the USS Typhon and Valkyrie Squadron.


Kwalin engineers the theft of the USS Pulsar. With both the USS Yoritomo and USS Valley Forge damaged beyond immediate repair, both crews team up. In a desperate measure, the museum ship, USS Enterprise-E, was activated and gave chase manned by the combined Yoritomo/Valley Forge crew. Using inter-phase technology to cloak the Enterprise, the joint crew was able to achieve the impossible and recover the Pulsar.

The Vesuvi Incident occurs: the sudden and unexplained explosion of the Vesuvi sun is later discovered to be the work of rogue Cardassian forces under the command of Legate Matan and an unknown species called the Kesssok. After creating a fleet of powerful vessels mixing Cardassian and Kessok technology, Matan betrayed the Kessok but was ultimately defeated by a combined force of Federation, Klingon, Romulan and Kessok craft. Matan himself was killed when his disabled craft fell into the gravity well of the binary stars of the Omega Draconis system. Diplomatic relations with the Kessok begin soon afterwards.


Shinzon Incident occurs, sparking the First Federation/Romulan War. Shinzon loyalists from the Romulans cross the Federation/Romulan border in attempt to take advantage of the weakness caused by the Federation/Dominion War. Initially, the Romulans make great gains, capturing numerous key systems but begin to lose momentum. Romulans defeated in the Battle of the Sheridan Nebula by combined fleet, and are slowly pushed back towards their home space. The Sendarian Accords, signed at the end of 2379, restore the neutral zone and declares a cease fire.



The The Borg Collective returns to the Sol System. Borg destroy the Romulan attack fleet, Starbase 1, San Francisco Shipyards, USS Avenger, USS Valley Forge. Fleet Admiral Jonathan Beckett initiates the Armageddon Directive.


Borg Invasion continues, all ships operating according to Armageddon Directive. New ships are launched from hidden shipyards to combat the invasion. In May, the Borg are finally defeated by a combined force of Klingon, Romulan, Mirak, Tholian, and Federation forces. In late 2381, a Task Force is created under the command of Admiral Jean-Luc Picard in order to assist the evacuation of Romulus from an impending supernova.


After the Borg Invasion, Federation member worlds have begun to secede from the weakened UFP. The economy has gone into recession and Star Fleet struggles to maintain its exploratory and scientific research under the strain of rebuilding and assisting the Romulan evacuation effort. Skirmishes with pirate races further weaken the fleet.

Alien vessels enter Federation Space in several key locations and engage Federation forces. The incident is brief but costs many lives and causes the destruction of several starships.


Orion Pirates deemed a serious threat the the Romulan Star Empire. Travel by all Orion ships into Romulan space is completely forbidden. Orion pirates respond by forming organized cartels. Orion pirate activity in the Romulan Empire increases by 300%. During this time, Orion pirates steal Romulan technology, including the highly valuable cloaking device. When the Orions start selling the technology to interested parties, the Romulans quickly negotiate a settlement allowing Orions free access to Romulan space. Though the Orions never sell the cloaking device technology, cloaking devices are installed on most Orion ships.


The Federation President was murdered by the Changeling Kwalin during an attempted assassination of the entire Federation Council. Kwalin was killed by Star Fleet Intelligence Officer Tom Chase, who lost his life trying to stop the attack. The surviving Federation Council, in an emergency session, elected Fleet Admiral Jonathan Beckett to the position of Federation President. Vice Admiral Talon Merrick of Star Fleet Intelligence was appointed Vice President, Former Fleet Commander Rear Admiral Rasmus Benestead was promoted to Fleet Admiral and selected as CINC of Star Fleet and former Fleet Commander Rear Admiral Raymond Gage was appointed as Minister of Diplomatic Affairs.

Attack on Mars occurs. Romulan rescue armada destroyed. Federation Council bans research into synthetic life. As a result of the attack and now-diminished construction capacity, Starfleet moves towards focusing on a single class of powerful ship based on advances made in the past decade. Initial designs for the Inquiry Class are drawn up.


A period of relative calm for the Federation. Abandoned due to the Armageddon Directive and thought destroyed by the Borg, Starbase Sierra-18 is reclaimed from pirates, repaired, and returned to Federation service. Amid growing tensions between the Democratic Romulan Republic and the RSE, Romulan forces begin making isolated contact with Federation ships in order to safeguard their own futures.

A conference between the Klingons, Federation, and Romulans is called on Carraya IV to address the imminent destruction of Romulus by a supernova. The UFP and RSE sign a formal peace treaty and, with the help of the Klingons, combine their technology and manpower to save the Romulan home world. The Romulan Exodus begins.


Romulan Supernova occurs. Desperate Romulan forces make a cross-border raid in an attempt to retake systems they believe the Federation is illegally occupying. The Federation responds by ending their longstanding ceasefire agreement with the Romulans and by officially recognizing the Democratic Romulan Republic. Encounters between the two galactic powers increase in intensity. Romulan forces capture Acamar and space station Sierra-18. The hostilities culminate in the Battle of 157, with both sides taking heavy losses and neither admitting defeat.


Tensions within the remnants of the Romulan Star Empire come to a boiling point, resulting in a coup that replaces the government with an isolationist coalition. The new Romulan government redirects its focus to the internal threats posed by the ousted Admiral Tei, withdrawing all Romulan ships from Federation space. The Third Romulan Civil War begins. Strange spatial anomalies appear near many of the major Federation home worlds.


The spatial anomalies that threatened Federation planets are sealed with the help of the Terran Empire, a benevolent empire from an alternate universe. The Klingon Empire, under the rule of Kalok the Infamous, is attacked by an ancient foe, known only to outsiders as the Hur'Q. Admiral Tei continues his efforts to return to power by mounting terrorist attacks within the RSE.



The First Attack from the Krynar Confederation starts at Star Base Charlie, posing as two Jem’hadar vessels. The Federation Immense-Class: Starbase Charlie was destroyed within moments. Shortly after that all sensor feed for Bajor was lost, the USS Louis confirmed that Bajor was destroyed. USS Democracy is lost upon entering the Bajor system in an investigation, Vice Admiral Shields and all hands were lost. Star Fleet attempted to maintain exploration missions, but in the end had to restrict scientific missions due to Krynar interference.


The USS Chin’toka was stolen by terrorists with several officers onboard including: Captains Yvette and Nielson as well as Vice Admiral Grayson. USS Pegasus, Philadelphia, Yeager, and James Madison are sent in pursuit, weakening the Inquisition front. The Chin’toka was recovered with no casualties. Federation News reports blame the Krynar for enlightening the terrorists. Identification of fleet of Krynar capital ships at the previous location of Starbase Sierra Eighteen, and the Staarc system is lost to the Inquisition.


This following section has been released by the JAG: In 2413, the Tal'Shiar seized the Neutral Zone and militarised it, unilaterally ending the Treaty of Algeron and closing the border in the name of security. Forced to act, the government attacked, and the ensuing Fourth Romulan Civil War turned the region into a battlefield as the Tal'Shiar and Uihvueri allied with each other to overthrow the ruling coalition on Eilhuann. After the Tal'Shiar was defeated and disbanded, the Imperial government kept the zone militarized, ending its neutral status and officially pulling out of the Treaty of Algeron.

Bioweapons and terrorists to the Federation are found on Nimbus III. All of the weapons and terrorists are seized. USS Sheridan, DD-4086 and USS Gettysburg combine efforts in an attempt to create weapon against the Krynar. Inquisition forces were found to be coming from somewhere in the Badlands, USS Dover and USS Intrepid, CA-1708 were assigned to investigate being equipped with the Sheridan and Gettysburg proto-type weapon. Dubbed ‘Graser’ the finalized version of the prototype is tested on board the USS Chin'toka, CA-1375 with its creator (at the time) Lieutenant Commander Edward Gregg observing. Federation Vice President Prenn attends Krynar peace conference. A ceasefire is called, and valuable information is transferred to the Federation. Battle Group Epsilon-1 is lost to the Krynar.


The Krynar get bolder by invading Tellar Prime, several vessels are dispatched to assist in breaking the invasion. An Engineering fleet is waylaid by warp gate miscalculations and ends up in a Magellanic cloud, holding up warpgate constructions for Federation attack groups. Sol System comes under attack from the Krynar. Both Krynar and Federation retreat is called, the Titan Flotilla is severely damaged. After months of fighting, Inquisition forces retreat breaking the siege of Tellar.

Bajor reappears, having been shifted three years ahead in time by The Prophets. According to Bajorans, only minutes had passed.


Finally, Federation forces attack the Krynar home system. Hundreds of ships engaged the Krynar in a final assault. An engineering flotilla was also sent to construct a temporary warp gate for a possible Federation retreat. There were minimal casualties to the Federation, although Krynar Enlightenment orbs managed to persuade Captain Tokat onboard the USS Ticonderoga to fire upon the USS Avenger. Once the situation was contained, all graser-equipped vessels fired upon the Krynar home system which resulted in its ultimate destruction. Most Star Fleet ships made it to the warp gate: except the Ticonderoga. After the war Star Fleet Engineering, Star Fleet Science, and JAG discontinued the Grazer weapon program and removed most if not all Grazer weapons on starships. Shortly after the war Star Fleet resumed exploration efforts in an attempt to continue their tradition. Several pre-warp species are located and recorded. A handful of pre-warp civilizations had been affected by criminals, and the Krynar, as well as Star Fleet vessels that were destroyed and crashed on the planet. During shore leave the USS Avenger was stolen from dock. Thankfully the USS Voltaire was on hand and carried the crew to locate the stolen vessel. The Avenger crew attempted to reclaim the ship, but not before the USS Gettysburg arrived with orders from the 1st Fleet to destroy the ship: with the crew on board. The Avenger was destroyed per 1st Fleet orders. Additionally, once the crew of the USS Voltaire attempted to beam onto the USS Gettysburg a anti-intruder system was activated vaporizing the entire original crew. So the Avenger crew was able to use the Gettysburg to return to starbase.


Because of the fiendish orders from the 1st Fleet, a cold war instigated between the 1st Fleet and 4th Fleet. Admiral Thomas Grayson declared for a different kind of government versus the current centralized government of the Federation. The stand-off continues for several months before the 4th Fleet rejoined the rest of Star Fleet. Exploration missions become more vigorous afterwards. The USS Pegasus is dispatched to the Gamma Quadrant-Delta Quadrant border through the Star Base Bravo warp gate. A warp gate was set up on the border of the Gamma Quadrant for Star Fleet to access; however during the time in the Gamma Quadrant the USS Pegasus encountered several problems. In short expeditions to the quadrant will require Star Fleet escort vessels.


Federation training exercises are interrupted with Mercenaries attacking the S.E.R.E trainees on Ryla, Federation personnel make their escape successfully. During a Diplomatic Meeting between the Democratic Romulan Republic and the United Federation of Planets, Ambassador Whitten was shot and killed--not by the Tal’Shiar assassin who attempted at killing Whitten, but by one Ensign Mazikeen Black of the USS Sheridan. Because of such a situation, political channels between the two governments have been left extremely tense. Aboard the USS Intrepid their own ambassador, Ambassador T'Loko was kidnapped, leaving the Federation two Ambassadors short.

The Cardassian/Talarian War begins as the Cardassians move into the unclaimed space between the Union and the Talarian Republic. Truthfully a series of border skirmishes, they will continue for the next several years.


The USS Beckett, CX-2000 is launched as part of a high-profile reorganisation of Star Fleet. The first flight is a disaster, with several crew killed, and the ship is immediately mothballed with construction of further units suspended. Admiral Grayson retires. President Barnett decides not to seek re-election. Star Fleet returns to its roots and begins exploration efforts in all four quadrants. The Kzinti reproductive crisis is discovered, and tensions between the Kzinti and their offshoot race the Mirak begin to rise.

Pioneer Outpost is established past Cardassian Territory, and the Expeditionary fleet is consolidated.


The brief but bloody Kzinti-Mirak war comes to a close with the near-destruction of Mirak society as the Star League is reabsorbed by their parent race. Tensions with the Cardassian Union escalate due to the construction of Pioneer Outpost and the actions of the USS Intrepid, CA-1708.

The 25th Century


Pioneer Expedition and reinforcements from First Fleet conduct a large-scale assault on the "Borg Megasphere", the planet-sized mobile base of the resurgent Borg Collective - the result is tactically a victory, strategically it is a draw. Star Fleet expands exploratory efforts with the Shackleton Expedition and recommissioned Pathfinder Project.

Tal'Shiar sect known as the Zhat Vash revealed as the perpetrators of the Synth Attack on Mars in 2385. Borg Cube known as "The Artifact" crash-lands on Coppelius. Coppelius granted Protectorate status.

Ban on Synthetic Research and Synthetic Life is rescinded by the Federation Council.

After two years of skirmishes, the Talarian Republic and Cardassian Union declare war upon each other. Due to superior technology, superior preparations, and superior intelligence, the Republic falls in a matter of hours, and the Talarian Republic becomes a puppet of the Union.


First long-distance journey made by a fleet powered by Quantum Slipstream Drive. Starships from the Pathfinder Project enter the Delta Quadrant and make contact with the Talaxian Colony first visited by Voyager.

April 2401 - "Frontier Day Incident". Following incursions by Changeling infiltrators, the Frontier Day celebration turns into a massacre. Starfleet personnel aged 25 and under are absorbed into a new Borg Collective, and use the new "Fleet Formation Mode" to attack Earth. Several starships, including the USS Excelsior, are destroyed during the fighting, and Probert Station is heavily damaged. Fleet Admiral Elizabeth Shelby and Captain Liam Shaw are killed during the fighting. The incident is resolved when the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-D destroys the Borg Transmitter Cube from within - ending the Borg threat seemingly once and for all.

USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-F Decommissioned.


While exploring the Shackleton Expanse, the USS Philadelphia makes first contact with the world of Jateran and its inhabitants, the J’Shashians. After inadvertently causing, then quelling a coup d’etat, they take active part in the birth of an infant Crystalline Entity. This event causes tensions with the Tholian Assembly.

USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-G commissioned.
