    Ok
    We know the federation was going to blow qronos up in discovery.

    Well that bomb is still floating around.

    2293 Klingon power is at a all time high. Klingons have pissed off the romulans aswell.

    So my theory is to end the Klingon threat once and for all, S31 and the Tal shir team up and are behind the destruction of praxis. The destruction and crippling would benefit both powers. They stage it as a accident though.

    It back fires however when the Klingons come to the federation for peace.
    S31 want the Klingons off the board and the romulans certainly don't want peace between the feds and Klingons.


    So the Tal shir provide chang with a experimental cloak and both S31 and Tal shir team up for there own reasons with the sabotaging of the kitomer accord

    This doesn't work and the peace was signed, with the romulans coming out the worst.

    Resentments simmers with the romulans with them blackmail the federation threatening to reveal all ruining there reputation.

    This results in the treaty of algerion with the federation agreeing to no cloaking, in exchange the romulans don't release the federation's dirty little secret plus forgoe development of the advanced cloak that was given to chang.

    ...Or then the Klingons, wary of attacks of this very sort, went overboard with placing anti-intruder mines in the moon-sized powerplant, and one of those blowing up caused a chain reaction. Death by overmining made humans and Romulans rub their hands in glee, as they didn't even have to actually send in their operatives.

    With the Klingons weakened and Romulan duplicity revealed in ST6, humans then concentrated on completely whipping the Romulans, forcing them to sign the humiliating Treaty of Algeron where both sides gave up cloaking - a much greater loss to the Romulans, reliant on this form of underhanded fighting, than to the Feds.

    Not so big a concession in the end, considering that a treaty forbidding the development and use of invisible ships could by definition never be observed, least of all by an opponent banished to the other side of the Neutral Zone. But a nice snap on the fingers of a culture that had bet everything on its ability to clandestinely manipulate foreign powers and depended on invisibility in all its contacts with other cultures to begin with.

    I think that treaty just redrew the neutral zone and prevented the Federation from pursuing cloaking tech. The Romulans have cloaks out the ass all during TNG.

    No one knows what exactly happened to praxis as the klingons were not exactly forthcoming with information

    What I do know is moons dont randomly blow up :lol:

    The dude who Excelsior first managed to reach on comms had accidentally pushed the red button instead of the green button, causing a chain reaction that destroyed a huge portion of Praxis. The Klingon High Command, not wanting the galaxy to know the depths of sheer Klingon incompetence, sent out an anonymous news leak to everybody, attributing the "incident" to "over-mining and insufficient safety precautions."

    Haha yeah maybe. I think we can agree over-mining was a bullshit excuse to cover something embarrassing up.

    Then again, whenever we see invisible Romulans in TNG, they are already in blatant violation of the Treaty of Algeron, through having entered and sometimes crossed the RNZ. There'd be little point in adding illegal invisibility to their already damning charges...

    Moons don't randomly blow up? Well, in Star Trek, planets do. Perhaps Praxis exploded out of old age, or because it caught a Moon Flu?

    I've never seen an invisible Romulan in my life.

    Not randomly, but they said it was an energy production facility that blew. The story was a Chernobyl allegory.

    Which pretty much sounded like a cover story. The klingons where pretty secretive and closed off about what happend.
