“Never before have we witnessed galactic turmoil on so many fronts, whether or not Starfleet and the UFP can continue to make a stand on so many fronts is simply not yet known. But we will try...”


In the post Dominion War and fall of Romulus galaxy the challenges are the biggest Starfleet and the UFP have ever faced; resources are scares and every faction is jostling for control. Starfleet have renewed their mission of exploration and briefly established a working, if occasionally hostile, coalition with the Klingon and Romulan Empires in the Shybal Expanse – A relatively unexplored area of space between the Cardassian Union and the Talarian Republic.


Ultimately both the Klingons' and Romulans' pulled their operations from the coalition leaving the UFP in sole control of the area and the locally known space mining station Themis Rock. Re-designated Outpost 319 it has now become the central base of operations for the Starfleet and UFP in this part of space.


NOW RECRUITING: Themis Rock - Outpost 319


In 2376 the 3 remaining power bases in the Alpha quadrant (Federation, Klingon and Romulan) embark on a joint mission to the Talar System in the Shybal Expanse – the area of space between the Talarian Republic and the Cardassian Union - in search trilithium and other rare minerals, these were finally discovered in large enough quantities on asteroid 07114. Soon teams of workers were working round the clock excavating the precious ore and remodelling the asteroid interior into a working outpost with a base of operations, living area, processing plants and all the other facilities needed for such a large mining operation.


However things went wrong, badly wrong. After only 7 years of intensive mining the supposedly endless supply of trilithium began to dry out. The first to pull out of the venture were the Romulans leaving the Federation and Klingon empire joint custodians of a rock in the middle of nowhere with nothing to show for it, eventually even the Klingons left citing political instability on Qo’nos, but everyone knew the real reason was they didn’t trust the Romulans and having so many personnel tied up in a white elephant so far from Klingon space was far from ideal so ownership of asteroid 07114 was handed over wholly to the Federation, a mere 6 months later the once promising rock on the edges of known space within the Shybal Expanse was silent as the last Federation ship ferried the remaining skeleton crew home.


The Rock Reborn


In 2387 Themis Rock was re-designated as Outpost 319 but is still colloquially known as Themis Rock. The Outpost was retrofitted and is large enough to provide a strategic base of operations for Starfleet and Federation concerns within the sector but small enough to be considered a frontier station.


The outpost’s re-launch coincides with Starfleet’s return to galactic exploration. Starfleet wishes to press the expanse’s Federation controlled interests in each direction thus setting up a power base at the outer limits of its operations.


Its operation fell under the joint command of Commander Ro Lorne and Commander Hal Cirrix. Shortly after they assumed command they were joined by Lt. Commander Doctor Isabelle Royce who assumed the mantle of Chief Medical Officer and Lieutenant Elly Doral as Chief of Security.


Their first act aboard the outpost was to give sanctuary to a group of time lost 21st century military veterans who arrived aboard an alien shuttle. From their ranks Lieutenant Jg. Tom Ford joined the team as Chief of Operations.

Themis Rock - Outpost 319 // 02 Brave New World Story Arc Recap


With its nearest Starfleet neighbours, Galen Station, some three weeks at maximum warp away Themis Rock is considered the next logical way station within the new frontier of the Shybal Expanse’s outer reaches.


The surrounding sectors of space are largely unexplored and thus Themis Rock has been assigned the Nova class USS Artemis – NCC 91763. As well as providing strategic support for the outpost she is a vessel of science and exploration.


The USS Artemis is one of the new breed of Nova class refits. The interior of the ship is almost the same but features state of the art science facilities. The refit also had superior tactical firepower and shield strength to that of its predecessor.


These new science and tactical enhancements soon proved to be invaluable when the outpost crew made first contact with the Morlo, an aquatic space faring race located approximately seven light years from the Talar System. Having made first contact the crew aided the Morlo overcome their natural predator the despair squid who’s ink contained a psychotropic poison which ultimately caused Commander Hal Cirrix sever neurological damage which placed him in a coma and he was returned to Bajor by his family.


Upon returning to the outpost the crew picked up a distress call from the long since thought destroyed USS Nehru an Akira class starship that had been lost during the final days of the Dominion War. Having been set adrift after being hit by a new kind of Dominion weapon the crew fashioned solar sails to try to propel it back to Federation space.


The Nehru crew placed themselves in to suspended animation in an effort to preserve their lives during the long journey back home. During their long sleep one of the solar sails failed and knocked the ship further off course eventually ending up close enough to the outpost to be rescued where the two surviving crew members, Lieutenants Remm Anar and Xeren Ra-Yaltreii, joined the outpost as Chief Science Officer and Chief Engineering Officer respectively. The ship was towed back to the outpost where it was placed in dry-dock for repair and refit.

Themis Rock - Outpost 319 // 03 Grand Theft Cosmo Story Arc Recap


After a series of explosions rocked Outpost 319 the base and the crew were pulled through a temporal subspace funnel arriving in 2345 shortly before the events of the Khitomer Massacre and landing them between the Romulan Neutral Zone and Andoria.


Shortly after their arrival they were contacted by the Federation timeship USS Omega and their enigmatic captain Milo van Dahl who had rescued former Antares Station XO and personal friend of Commander Ro, Commander Audrina Calista from the time steam.


Commander Calista explained that the explosions had been a botched attempt to steal the outpost by an organisation called The SHARD, an anti-Federation terrorist cell, and that having travelled through time the outpost's crew were now in the perfect position to stop a Romulan assault on Andoria which would have destabilised the Federation in the same way the Khitomer Massacre destabilised the Klingon Empire.


Thankfully a Klingon Bird of Prey the IKS Honour Bound, which had been docked at the outpost, had also travelled back in time with the crew.


Dividing her crew in two Commander Ro sent the honour bound off under their commanding officer Major Nortak along with Lieutenant's Ra-Yaltreii and Anar, to deal with the Romulans while the remaining crew dealt with their now captive saboteur and the repair of the outpost.


In a shocking twist the SHARD saboteur turned out to be Ro's own daughter Ashla who had been abducted from Antares Station, her previous command, shortly before it's destruction during the final days of the Gregarii Wars.


It later transpired that all the events so far had been a cunning ruse to divert attention away from the USS Omega and her crew, who turned out to be trans-temporal trans-dimensional pirates and were planning to steal Outpost 319 to use as their own base of operations.


Thanks to the quick thinking of the crew the pirates were stopped and the Romulans quashed. However, the pirates managed to activate the trans-temporal trans-dimensional reactor core modulation devices before they left which transported the outpost back to its proper time.


However, one of the deceives malfunctioned and left half of the outpost in Andorian space while the other returned to the Shybal Expanse. The two halves of the outpost remain connected via a localised subspace distortion bisecting the three umbilical turbolift shafts that connect both of the rocks that make up the outpost.


Having returned to their own time Starfleet Command has assigned a specialist engineer from the Starfleet Corp of Engineers to take over as Chief Engineer and further study the unique phenomenon.


In a final twist the crew discover that their actions aboard the Honour Bound were directly responsible for the Khitomer Massacre and had they not averted the attack on Andoria the Klingon's would have remained unscathed.


Once returned to their proper place and time (more or less) Lieutenant Anar and Commander Calista departed for Trill on extended shore leave to recuperate from the effects of the mission. Doctor Royce has been recalled to Starfleet Medical and in her place Doctor Sorjei Keval is Acting Chief Medical Officer. In addition Lieutenant Doral has returned to Galen Station on a leave of absence and in her stead Lieutenant Jg. John Ray takes over as Acting Chief of Security.
