This is a new Sutherland/Perseus story that takes place in late 2378, just as Task Force: Vanguard and the Refugee Crisis are getting ready to kick in. Some major changes for certain characters take place here. I'd like to thank TheLoneRedshirt for giving me the permission to use his characters from Bluefin. This also heralds the eventual new beginning of a hopefully soon to be seen series of episodes involving the Sutherland and Perseus, with some guest appearances and maybe a few feature stories with the Bellerophon, and Madrid as they and the Third, Seventh, and Twelfth Border Squadrons along with maybe other guest stars attempt to keep the peace and explore the unknown along a long and war-racked frontier. I hope you enjoy the story.
