The Federation is torn apart by war and on the verge of losing everything.
From the ashes of what remains of Starfleet, Atlantis Fleet is born in the Federation's greatest hour of need.
The Romulans were nearly decimated by the explosion of their sun and the destruction of Romulus. The Federation was severely crippled from the Dominion War, when they lost Deep Space Nine to the Dominion. Which was later destroyed, to prevent Captain Sisko from retaking it. As well as the last Borg invasion at sector 001, where the Enterprise - E was lost with all hands back in the late twenty first century as they blew up the ship to save the Earth.
The Klingons seized upon the 'glorious' oppurtunity and turned on their allies to gain the dominance of the Alpha Quadrant as they had always dreamed of, but could never acheve before. The Romulans are unable to defend themselves and Stafleet is being forced back to defend it's core worlds, but are being ripped apart by the Klingon advance.
Atlantis Fleet is the home of Starfleet's last defence force. Some of the most powerful ships-of-the-line can be found in this fleet. Charged with the defense of what is left of the neutral zones and the Federation core world's, this Fleet's mission is no easy task.
Atlantis Fleet is the last hope for the Federation. The answer to all civilizations who cry out for peace. The Light in theDarkness. A beaconofhope.
