Star Trek - Campaign Chronology

Approximately 1 million years ago

An unknown race, dubbed "the Builders" by Federation scientists, builds a Dyson Sphere around a G5 type star in the Dobhran Sector. The Sphere is some 200 million kilometres in diametre and is constructed of carbon neutronium. The Builders are actually a species from an alternate dimension called the Finorii, working under the direction of an ascended being named Yaskoydray, known as "the Grandfather." The Grandfather has also created a series of pocket universes known as the "String of Pearls."

290,000 years ago

The Builders abandon the Dyson Sphere, possibly due to instability in the central star.

1982

The television series Galaxy Quest is cancelled due to low ratings, but lives on in syndication. The series has a fanatical following and many prominent scientists and astronauts confide that it played a rôle in their decisions to pursue careers in science. The final 2-part episode is never rerun.

2000

18 years after its cancellation, Galaxy Quest is reborn as Galaxy Quest, the Legend Continues, after a publicity stunt which causes over $3 million damage to a convention hotel. The original cast is reunited for the series, and rumours persist that a new character on the show, is actually played by an alien.

2063

USS Challenger NCC-74695 travels back in time to prevent the Borg from altering the future. The Borg arrive two days later and begin bombarding the Montana launch complex where Zefram Cochrane is preparing to test his newly-invented warp drive. USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E destroys the Borg sphere. Cochrane successfully tests the drive and makes first contact with the Vulcans. Challenger and Enterprise return to the 24th century.

2075

Earth's first extra-solar colony is founded on Alpha Centauri III. The colony is completely independant of Earth and in 2161 becomes a founding member of the United Federation of Planets.

2185

The NX Class starship Excalibur NX-57, commanded by Captain John Adams, arrives at Altair IV on a routine patrol. Dr. Edward Morbius and his daughter Altaira are the only survivors of the Earth colony established 20 years earlier. Dr. Morbius' studies of ancient ruins release an unstoppable force which kills him and devastates a large part of the planet's surface. Dr Morbius is killed and Altaira narrowly escaped aboard the Excalibur. Dr. Morbius is revived by an entity known as "the Grandfather" and ascends to a higher plane of existance. He adopts the nom du dei of "Möbius."

2250

IKV bortaS disappears while returning to Qo'noS after a raid on Romulus. BortaS is disabled and the command boom crashes in the Dyson Sphere. The bortaS is immortalised in Klingon legend as a series of serial holonovels entitled Battlecruiser Vengeance.

2276

SS Leviathan, a Unicorn class Starliner, disappears with all hands. Over the next century, the Leviathan develops into a legend not unlike that of the ancient Earth sailing ship, the Flying Dutchman. Ships all over the Federation claim to have seen it travelling through ion storms at speeds in excess of Warp 9, high-energy plasma bleeding off its hull and nacelles. Some even claim to have been hailed by a skeletal Captain Ivor Thorrsen, beckoning them to approach and match courses. The dead can be seen dancing in the ballroom beneath the transparent forward hull, and all subspace channels shriek with a noise like damned souls. Even a few Klingon ships claim sightings, embellishing the tales with the Barge of the Dead flying in close formation as the Leviathan makes its way to Gre'thor. Ships which fail to make port, especially those lost to ion storms, are said to have "met Leviathan." Most merchant spacers boldly proclaim the legends to be "old space tales," but deep in the core of their souls, they believe...

On a routine mission scouting one of the built-up areas surrounding a portal, the crew of the Lena encounter Farl, a member of the Finori race. Farl claims that the Finori are the "Sons of the Grandfather," the true heirs of the creator of the Sphere. He claims that the entity called "Möbius" is a protége of the Grandfather who rebelled and is trying to destroy the Sphere. Farl is taken back to Freeman's Island for debriefing while the crew of the Lena explore the coordinates given them for Farl's home base, accompanied by Lieutenant (jg) Aquaal Leiliri. A pyramid complex at the coordinates contains a dimensional transporter which malfunctions, triggering a massive solar flare. The complex is destroyed and the Lena is feared destroyed along with it, but reappears 3 days later, having been transported to the 29th century. The Lena has sustained minor damage, and has a severely wounded Möbius aboard. Also aboard are Guurps, who had stowed away; and Lieutenant Willa Tau, a liaison officer from the Havenic Imperial Federation.

He is followed by the USS Lena, which finds itself stranded in an alternate universe. On a planet known to its inhabitants as the Glory Road, the crew encounters a psionic "wizard" named Bowen the Black, who leads them to a dimensional gate which transports them to the "Library" an extradimensional repository of the knowledge of the many universes. There, they learn the true identity of Möbius, and meet a diminutive man named Dhama Gupta. Gupta claims to be a Buddhist monk from ancient Earth, and to be a refugee from the String of Pearls, but is ignorant of Möbius current location. He arranges for them to return to Dyson Base, mere seconds after they entered the portal.

Her first mission is to survey the Cardassian mining station Cretok Nor in the Monaria system. Several hundred Federation prisoners are discovered sealed in mining holds on the station. Most are dead. Among the survivors are Captain Sundown, Ensign Sito Jaxa, and Lieutenants Thomas Riker and Ro Laren. The latter two are wanted for desertion and Maquis activities, but escape before their identities are discovered.

Investigating a stray sensor reading, the USS Lena enounters a revived Starfleet Lieutenant Natasha Yar, who has been living in the Sphere since her escape from the String of Pearls. An attack on her camp by the android Kapecki forces Yar and the Lena's crew to take refuge in the Sphere's maintenance tunnels.

The starship USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E visits Dyson Base to interview Tasha Yar. While the Enterprise is there, a Romulan Warbird commanded by Tal Shiar Commander Sela arrives, also to see Yar. "Ensign T'Zil"–actually a Tal Shiar operative named Tzillia– is revealed to be alive, though hideously scarred from the explosion of her ship, and is working under Sela. After a tense confrontation, both the Enterprise (with Yar aboard) and the Romulan ship depart the Sphere.

As the ships leave the Sphere portal, a subspace anomaly is detected, and is investigated by the USS Lena. The crew of the Lena are transported off the ship into the anomaly, but return seconds later reporting that they have spent several weeks in an alternate universe where they were embroiled in a war between the Kapecki androids and two factions of Finori, ultimately rescuing Möbius and Yaskoydray, who once more takes his rebellious creations in hand.

2377

Lieutenant (jg) Tal is invited to the wedding of the QorveS, the Klingon who dubbed him the "Killer Targ", at QorveS' ancestral home on Qo'noS.

The computers being used by the Romulans to hijack the Sphere maintenance drones are found to contain Borg technology stolen from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. The Borg components adapt to the Romulan and Starfleet computer systems and begin assimilating Romulan and Federation personnel.

The Borg, who have not yet constructed a vinculum and are thus unable to contact the Collective and complete their assimilation, are destroyed after assimilating a village full of simianoids known as the Pongo.

Galaxy Class USS Eagle arrives to assess the Borg situation. Commander Shelby is aboard.

M'Rel, Tal and Seth exchanged minds with their Mirror Universe counterparts. They are detected and narrowly manage to escape. Meanwhile, their counterparts cause mayhem on Dyson Base. Attempting to reverse the mind-swith, they accidentally cause a dimensional shift and wind up in a limbo-like space, face-to-face with their Mirror counterparts. The Mirror-M'Rel and Tal succumb to the deleterious effects of this "limbo," but M'Rel, Tal and both Seths escape to a place known as Centre on a planet called the "Phase World."

Happier news for Starfleet is the successful conclusion of the dispute over the mobile emitter now in the possession of the photonic lifeform known as The Doctor. He agrees to accept a commission as a lieutenant commander in Starfleet and takes the post of chief medical officer at the research facility on Galor IV. Because the mobile emitter will be with him at Galor IV, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers will have the opportunity to study the device.

A strange incident is reported on the Klingon world of Rha'darus. While on shore leave from his duties on the I.K.S. Kang, Ja'rod, son of Torg, is ambushed by three Klingon warriors. He manages to kill two of them, and brings the third back to his ship. Expecting the attack to be from an enemy of the House of Duras, Ja'rod is shocked to discover that his attackers weren't Klingon at all! Application of a painstick forces the captive to change and its shape morphs from a Klingon to a strange tripedal alien. Under questioning by Ja'rod and members of the Kang's crew, the alien reveals that it is a member of a species known by its Borg designation of Species 8472. The alien calls itself an Undine, and reveals that not only was its party specifically sent to Rha'darus to capture Ja'rod and replace him, this was not the first time the Undine have done so. There are Undine infiltrators in every major political entity of the Alpha and Beta quadrants.

2396

A medical crisis puts a strain on the rebuilding Romulan Star Empire. An outbreak of Bloodfire ravages the Kevratas system, ultimately spreading to multiple colony worlds. Nausicaan forces working for the Gorn Hegemony destroy three Klingon outposts with a coordinated surprise attack. A Klingon fleet obliterates a hidden Nausicaan base in the Orelious IX asteroid belt, and then proceeds to hunt down and destroy every Nausicaan ship that escaped before the base was destroyed.

Starfleet observation posts are seeing an increase in ship traffic going to the far reaches of the Beta Quadrant. Reports are that the Dopterians are funneling ships and supplies to Romulan exile Sela and her followers in exchange for decalithium. Ships similar to reports from the U.S.S. Voyager have also been sighted. Since Sela is well out of Federation space, Starfleet has no grounds on which to stop the trade.

Alexander Rozhenko returns to Earth with his son D'Vak. Rozhenko takes a post teaching political science at the Saint Petersburg State University and tells friends that he is considering writing a book about his experiences on Boreth, but that he has no plans to return to the Klingon Empire.

2397

An era ends when Geordi La Forge leaves Engineering for Command. La Forge had been dividing his time between ship design and his duties with Starfleet for several years, but when the opportunity arrives to take his own command he cannot turn it down. La Forge is promoted to captain of the U.S.S. Challenger, and recommends Commander Nog to be chief engineer of the U.S.S. Enterprise-E.

The I.K.S. Kang, missing since the previous year, reappears long enough for its captain to announce that the House of Duras will formally ally with the House of J'mpok. Captain Ja'rod, now calling himself Ja'rod, son of Lursa, says that he is taking leadership of the House of Duras.

In Romulan space, the government of Kevratas, which was decimated by a plague of Bloodfire and the subsequent Romulan quarantine, declares its independence from Romulan rule. Praetor Taris orders General Tebok to put down the insurrection with force, but the general refuses to order his troops to fire on civilians. In response for his insubordination, Taris orders Tebok to resign his position as head of the Romulan military. Tebok refuses and instead appeals to the Senate, which overrules Taris.

2398

In Starfleet, Lieutenant Naomi Wildman is assigned as the new helm officer of the U.S.S. Hathaway. And Miral Paris, another child who was born on the U.S.S. Voyager, enters Starfleet Academy.

On Stardate 75705.90, the Federation-mediated peace talks between the Gorn Hegemony and the Klingon Empire are disrupted by an explosion that rocks the resort on Casperia Prime where the talks are being held. The device is tracked back to Toral, son of Duras, who is wanted for crimes against both the Federation and the Klingon Empire. The Gorkon pursues Toral's ship into the Archanis Sector, but it escapes.

2399

On Stardate 76014.61, dignitaries from throughout the Federation gather to celebrate the opening of the first links of the Federation transwarp network.

On Stardate 76306.19, the I.R.W. Alth'lndor notifies Nova Roma that it is experiencing unexplained malfunctions in several systems, but that the problems should not impede the ship's progress. Tebok assures Velal that the engineers on the Alth'lndor believe the problems are being caused by a computer virus and that they will have a solution for the problem shortly. Two hours later, the Alth'lndor drops out of warp and transmits a final distress signal. The I.R.W. Kaidor is the closest vessel, and it races to the Alth'lndor's location. The Kaidor reports detecting an antimatter containment failure, but before her crew can act the Alth'lndor explodes, killing General Tebok and all hands.

2400

The combined force of the Gorn and Nausicaan fleets initially repels the Klingon advance, earning them a measure of respect for their ferocity in battle. For its part, the Federation is reinforcing outposts and colonies along the border of Klingon space and preparing to handle any spillover of hostilities. However, standard orders are to not seek out a confrontation.

Praetor Taris sways some Senators to her side, but her general unpopularity with the Romulan populace dooms her call for expanded executive powers. The Senate proceeds with its plan to limit the power of the praetor. In another possible problem for the Romulan praetor, agents for Starfleet Intelligence have intercepted and decoded several messages from Nova Roma to a planet deep in the Beta Quadrant. These messages point out irregularities in the reports about the death of General Tebok and the destruction of the I.R.W. Alth'lndor. Sela has ordered her spies to investigate and find the truth of the matter.

2401

Starfleet Intelligence observers report that a possible uprising in Romulan space that could further destabilize the already troubled empire. The commander of the Romulan Second Fleet reportedly met with Sela and some of her exiled followers in the Zeta Volantis system

On Stardate 78092.83, Natima Lang is elected as the castellan of the Cardassian Union.

Two Starfleet advancements of note: Lieutenant Commander Naomi Wildman is appointed as second officer of the U.S.S. Hathaway, and Miles O'Brien is named head of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, the first time a non-commissioned officer has held that position.

Overshadowing everything in 2401 is the Klingon-Gorn war.

On Qo'noS, the Klingon High Council is rocked by the revelation that Councilor Konjah is an Undine. The Undine masquerading as Konjah was killed, and his body taken to the High Council chambers. Chancellor J'mpok then strips the House of Konjah of its titles and status, and its members are either killed or forced into hiding.

2402

After two years of war, the Klingons blockade the Gorn homeworld; it seems very likely that they will soon win the war. A Klingon religious group attempts to kidnap Miral Paris during her senior cadet cruise, claiming she is their kuvah'mah. The group attacks the U.S.S. Pike, but is repelled.

In positive news, Starfleet revolutionizes ship building processes to create a more modular system. This allows for easier customization and repair of Starfleet ships. Ambassador Jean-Luc Picard retires and settles in France.

The Gorn Hegemony falls to the Klingon Empire. One blow for the Klingons this year is the departure of Emperor Kahless. Late in the year, Kahless handpicks a crew from the Order of the Bat'leth and departs on the I.K.S. Batlh.

In Romulan space, the conflict between Prateor Taris and General Velal continues to divide the already fractured empire. Kevatras and Abraxas Prime throw their support behind the rebellion, giving Velal and Sela's forces much needed safe havens and supply bases. The war comes to an abrupt end on Stardate 80957.96, when forces of the Romulan Second Fleet approach Rator III. The Senate names Sela as praetor and General Velal as the leader of the Romulan fleet by acclamation. The reign of Praetor Taris is over.

2404

Starfleet celebrates the opening of more links in the Federation transwarp network.

On Stardate 81753.16, Chancellor J'mpok informs the Federation ambassador that he is invoking ancient claims to the Hromi Cluster and the sectors surrounding it, an area that has been ceded to the Federation for decades.

2405

On Stardate 82001.36, Federation President Aennik Okeg informs the Klingon Empire that the Federation will not leave the Hromi Cluster or the sectors surrounding it. The Klingon response is swift. Three days later a Klingon fleet invades the Korvat system. The Klingons clash with a fleet of Starfleet ships sent to protect the colony and stop Klingon landing parties attempting to forcibly remove Federation citizens from the planet. The Klingons gets more support when a coalition of Nausicaan tribes signs a non-aggression pact with the empire. Nausicaans who choose to swear fealty to the Klingon Empire will be able to join the Klingon Defense Force and own property in the Empire.

2406

The war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire heats up when the Klingon fleets invade the Archanis Sector. Military observers predict that the fight for the Archanis Sector will be a long one.

One thing that may help Starfleet is an advance in power cell technology developed by the research teams at Memory Alpha. The new cells make personal shield generators feasible for Starfleet officers on away teams. Starfleet medical ships, including the U.S.S. Pasteur, U.S.S. Comfort, U.S.S. Curie and U.S.S. Fleming, are diverted to the Federation colony in the Carnegie system to combat a highly-virulent plague that reportedly has affected more than 80 percent of the population. In one Starfleet promotion of note, Admiral Chakotay is named the new head of Starfleet Intelligence. Chakotay promises to bring more openness and accountability to what has traditionally been a very reclusive post.

2407

Fighting continues in the Archanis Sector, with both the Federation and the Klingons reporting significant losses.

The Vulcan Science Academy is working on improvements to transwarp technology.

2408

The Klingon and Gorn invade Cestus III, and Starfleet masses a fleet to defend the planet and its population.

On Stardate 85365.28, years of instability and infighting in the Romulan Star Empire seemingly come to a close with the coronation of Empress Sela. The new empress will have no praetor, and the Senate will serve at her pleasure. Sela calls for a return to the traditions of old, including the carrying of honor blades and blood oaths.

After Starfleet loses contact with Starbase 236 in late September, it sends the U.S.S. Enterprise-E to investigate.

29th Century

The Constitution Class starship USS Excalibur, NCC-1705, accidentally travels to the Havenic Imperial Federation and rescues Major Jonathan David Norton from stasis. Norton returns with the Excalibur to the 23rd century.

Several years later, the HIMS Sophista, the starship on which Princess Callista serves, strays into a wormhole and is propelled back in time to the United Federation of Planets. The Federation starship Excalibur is instrumental in her return to the HIF.

Several decades after the return of the Sophista, the runabout Lena appears in Havenic space as a result of a malfuntion in a complex in the Dyson Sphere. The Scout Service cruiser HIMS Kzinti Lightning assists in returning them to the 24th century.
