"Star Trek: Avalon" - by Jason K.S. Hauck
Synopsis: 3 Years have passed since the Dominion War. The signatories of the one-time "Alpha Quadrant Alliance" have all granted Starfleet & The U.F.P. safe passage across their territory to explore on their behalf. The U.S.S. Voyager has safely returned to Earth. Advances have been made. Now that the war is over, some are free to resume making long term arrangements.
Sophie Grimes & her fledgling crew have been hand-picked from throughout the tattered remainder of Starfleet to handle this important five year mission.
The U.S.S. Avalon-C NCC 27936-C
, (an upgraded Loknar-style starship with modern Sovereign-Class attributes) has been slapped together by the S.C.E. & dispatched on a TOS-style adventure to the furthest reaches of charted Beta Quadrant space to peer over the edge of the detectable horizon toward the Delta Quadrant.
Just remember, Trouble comes in ~all~ sizes and shapes....
