We are a play by nova role-play.
Our Year: 2388
After the natural disaster that was Hobus, the Federation is now stretched to her maximum. Her thinning forces spread about the known quadrants. Assisting the Romulans remains their top priority, all the while preventing what seems to be an all out Klingon Civil War with several of the Klingon's military forces moving to finish off what's left of the Romulan Empire.
Mission I: The Colonial Inferno
While loading new personnel, and leaving old ones behind at Starbase 39 the U.S.S. Scorpion receives her first assignment. Much to Commander Grisham's disappointment it is not entirely diplomatic. The Scorpion's crew is to investigate several Federation colonies that are along the Neutral Zone. The investigation involves looking into the ever increasing plate tectonics on the planet, to find the cause and how to slow the progression or perhaps stop it altogether.
The constant moving of the plates has caused pockets of geothermic energy and gasses to be released and thereby causing harm to the residents of the planet. Upon further investigation the Scoprion's crew finds that this is not a natural state of progression for this planet's age. In fact, perhaps some unnatural means and manipulation from outside is causing this, but who and why?
The answers to these questions will come about soon, on the first voyage of the U.S.S. Scorpion.
An arms race seems to be in the process with the Federation quickly massing newer technologies, in preparation for war. Whispers of war spread among the Gorn as they seek to enter a territorial grab with the Klingon Empire. The Borg have been discreet, Seven of Nine warned that they'd return and perhaps they are returning sooner than thought.
The U.S.S. Scorpion named in honor of the United States Submarine Scorpion, emerges as a Norway-class vessel ready to engage those who would penetrate the Federation's borders sworn to protect her from enemies both foreign and domestic.
