Coming Soon-ish: Task Force Vanguard

Coming this spring from the writers of United Trek:

It’s been two years since the end of the Dominion War. The Alpha Quadrant is still reeling in the aftermath of the most destructive interstellar war in over two millennia. The Romulan Star Empire teeters on the brink of economic and social collapse as the Klingons struggle to come to grips with a failing warrior ethos that has left their society riddled with nepotism and corruption. What remains of the Cardassian Union is in shambles with a road to recovery that will be measured in decades.

As the great powers of the quadrant lick their wounds, the second-tier governments vie for position and spark a firestorm of ‘minor’ conflicts that further sap the strength of the beleaguered Federation. The Alshain/Son’a War, the Talarian Incursion, the Benzar Plebiscite Crisis, the Velk Incident, a resurgent Maquis movement and religious terrorism on Bajor… the crises mount as an overwhelmed Starfleet struggles to cope.

Amidst this turmoil, a new shadow takes shape, a potential catastrophe the likes of which has never been seen in the Federation’s history. Keeping the truth of the impending danger from their wartime allies, Starfleet engages in a desperate plan that just might give the UFP the time it needs to meet the rising threat head on, and more importantly, on the Federation’s terms.

Task Force Vanguard

Task Force Vanguard
It would be cool if this was about those purple parasites from TNG's Conspiracy, and they could start infiltrating the Federation again...

I have no doubt it'll be up to the usual high-standards I've come to expect.

Looking forward to it.

Damn you, damn you, damn you!

I have posted on the UT forums for the first time in six months.

The gist of the posts: The Return of BrotherBenny.

New ship and new crew, specially for Vanguard.

With both Gibraltar's and TLR's excellent work on TFV so far, it makes me wish I was in United Trek--this seems like such a genious idea!!

Keep it up gentlement
