About The Sim

“In every war zone that I’ve been in, there has been a reality and then there has been the public perception of why the war was being fought. In every crisis, the issues have been far more complex than the public has been allowed to know.”
~ John le Carre

The year is 2375 and the Dominion War…is over. The Treaty of Bajor is now in effect and the Allies look to their own societies. The Klingons fall back within their own borders and begin to rebuild their fleet and society. The Romulans…we rarely know what they are really doing.

The Federation however faces the daunting task of rebuilding broken worlds and broken lives, rebuilding most of her fleet. Its most important task though is to rebuild its broken self. Gone now are the idealistic explorers, in their place wary, often times jaded veterans and wide eyed graduates the Academy keeps churning out. Time will only tell if these two polar opposites of a once united society can work together, if they can serve under the Federation’s original remit of exploration and self betterment. With a few more weapons than before.

Herein enters the USS Taniwha, an Akira class starship, freshly repaired out of the Okana shipyards on Bajor. As with many others, Starfleet faces a shortage of commanding officers and crew, so individuals are promoted to positions they may not have sought but now must accept, for the greater good.

Such is the case of Commander Xanthe Rahal, formerly the Intelligence Officer assigned to the USS Al-Haytham. Having been forced to take command of the Al-Haytham during the Battle of Cardassia and successfully getting the ship and her survivors through it, Commander Rahal is assigned as the new Commanding Officer of the USS Taniwha, in place of the late Captain Erihel Sand.

Current Mission: Whispers Of Change

Going back to the place that has brought you grief, loss and nightmares is never easy. USS Taniwha must, however do so. As part of the Task Force: Phoenix, Commander Rahal and her crew travel to Cardassian space, the place that left so many scarred, the place of so many losses.

The Taniwha heads for Cardassian space, carrying supplies and personnel to help in the rebuilding effort of the devastated worlds.

Task Force: Phoenix is a joint Klingon and Federation task force tasked with helping Cardassia make the necessary transitions and to keep the peace in the area until the New Detapa Council could establish a firm foothold and stabilize the Cardassian people and society. Starships that were combat capable would take rotations in the area to help things along and eventually fully run the oversight role, as the Klingons were phasing out their ships and returning to their own territories to re-inforce and repair their own society.

Only things do not go according to plan at all. First the encounter with the enigmatic CDS Madred and Gul Par Soran and his crew, then the dire distress signal sent by the USS Kensington about the attack on the Federation Embassy on Cardassia Prime.
