Victory Conditions

Post Count: 309

With the Cardassian 127th Tactical Wing of the Sixth Order flexing its muscles close to DS5, Starfleet is going to make its own demonstration, to let the galaxy know about its latest ship developments, and their potential to actively defend the Federation.

In a series of exercises and drills of fleet ships, the USS Svikari is trialling a new form of shields and weapons, and her captain is keen to make sure everyone knows just what enemies of the Federation will be dealing with in the future. Can the crew of DS5, acting as adjudicators and coordinators of the exercise, keep the rivalries within the fleet from turning a simulation of war into the real thing? There's just one question...

A subspace anomaly passes slowly through Deeps Space Five drawing to it transdimensional aliens long stranded in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

Who are these creatures so beguiling to behold?
What is their mission, and what secrets lie untold?

This is a free posting period running from now until the end of September.

In game time this period will cover several months whilst scans and surveys are conducted to ensure that there is no sentient life on the planet before exploration begins.

Pangaea (Wrap up)

Post Count: 496

Following an unprecedented astronomical event that saw a complete solar system emerge from between dimensions Deep Space Five has successfully established a geostationary orbit around the largest of three planets that orbit a yellow sun.

Dubbed Pangaea the M Class planet is approximately 1.2 times the size of Earth – scans, probes and reconnaissance sweeps have established that Pangaea is resource rich, and though all three planets have ruins left by an advanced trans-dimensional space-faring civilisation known as the Fae there is no extant sentient life in the system.

Until now the major powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants have been content to let Starfleet and the Federation operate DS5 in what was a void of extra-solar space on the fringes of Federation territory, all finding our presence a useful and convenient stepping stone for trade and exploration beyond the borders.

Things have changed.

A diplomatic summit has been convened - the Ferengi, Cardassians, Klingons, Romulans, Lissepians, even the mysterious Rowa'ni have sent delegates. But interest in the Pangaea system goes beyond that – DS5 has become a magnet for independent resource strippers and land grabbers keen to exploit what natural resources Pangaea and the rest of the system may conceal.

Until now we’ve utilised the Prime Directive to keep all parties at bay but our time is running out. While our initial teams commenced exploration both above and below the planet’s surface our fighter wings intercepted no fewer than six independent attempts to land survey teams on Pangaea and the other planets in the system.

It is up to the crew of Deep Space Five to manage the conflicting interests of all parties, and ultimately to establish who should inherit these new worlds without the sector descending into war.

Interlude - Day 1

Life aboard DS5 returns to normal and in a rare period of respite no new threat emerges.

This is a time to relax, to get to know your fellow crewmates, to lose yourself in a holosuite. Time to take that well earned leave or just prop up your favourite bar once the day's work is done.

After all, they do say that a little bit of what you fancy does you good ...
