Welcome to Deep Space Twelve!

Located deep in the Alpha Quadrant the Maelstrom is a realm of danger and intrigue on the edge of Federation, Klingon, 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.

The final frontier has never been as scary as it is today.

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. After almost two decades the Federation has set its sights back upon the Maelstrom as a potential source for energy to power the galaxy into the next century, but what challenges will they face in the far reaches of the final frontier?

Ensign Viradi sat back and admired his handiwork. He and a team of engineering technicians, botanists, and vendors had transformed the massive cargo bay into a nightclub. But a nightclub unlike any other. The widest variety of flowers the young man had ever seen. The formerly drab space was now,…

Viradi made his way from the bridge to the Falchion’s sickbay. The small ship was easy to navigate, and the Angeleno was quickly beginning to feel at home. Having some training in first aid, the diminutive man had volunteered to help out in sickbay. The new Denobulan science officer seemed…

Personal log, Stardate 60114.3. My transfer request to Deep Space 12 has been accepted. I believe that this posting will be significantly different from my previous posting aboard the USS T'Kumbra. Serving with an all-Vulcan crew has taught me that Vulcan logic is not perfect. I believe that it will…

I've been re-assigned to the USS Falchion. Leaving the USS Serenity will be bittersweet, but the Falchion needs an Operations Officer and has important work to do. Or so I'm told... To be honest, I'm not really sure what to expect. I was told I can make a big impact…

Personal log, November 15th, 2398

The commanding officer of the USS Falchion, Commander Xerix, arrived today. I had hoped to make an excellent first impression, but I fear my comment about a certain money-obsessed race of swindlers may of ruined any chance of that. Perhaps later I can rectify my…
