“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them." ― Rabindranath Tagore

It’s 2394, and new threats lurk around every corner...

In the last decade, the galaxy as we know it has changed beyond measure. Mars and the Utopia Planitia were attacked by rogue synthetic lifeforms, and the hub of ship design and production spread around the Federation. With the subsequent ban on synthetics, holographic technology advancements surged. Elsewhere, the after effects of the synth attack were felt far and wide. A rescue armada gathered together by Admiral Jean-Luc Picard was destroyed, leaving the Romulan people to suffer in the wake of a disastrous Supernova in their home systems. Cyberneticists from various empires saw their work wiped out and tensions with the Federation suffered. In the aftermath of these life changing events, outlying Federation worlds continue to spread dissent and threaten to cede from paradise, but a newly elected President seeks to unite the worlds again and seek an end to growing tensions.

However, on the evening of her inauguration, President Iden Morr of Bajor was assassinated in an attack that sent shock waves across the Federation. Fleet Admiral Clancy has ordered Starfleet to its highest level of alert since the synth attack on Mars. Border patrols have increased with all major powers and Ambassadors recalled as investigations take place. In the outer rim, Federation starships begin to assert their dominance in a crackdown on rising tensions. Despite the dark days behind us, there is still hope for sense to prevail. The Starfleet mandate of peaceful exploration and scientific discovery remains, and it is our job, the crew of the Polaris-class USS Ulysses, to carry out that mandate.

Together, we will boldly go where no one has gone before…

Lt. Marcus Miridon hadn't waited long after the mission briefing to set about drafting an itinerary for his department; they'd already checked and dry-tested and remodulated the ship's sensors, though the unforgiving terran set some ensigns about doing it again.
