The year is 2263. War looms on the Horizon.
The year is 2264. A new, uneasy peace has settle over the Alpha Quadrant.
The conflict between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire has cooled, though trust is hard to find.
Starfleet, taking advantage of the calm, has sent out new exploration missions, looking to reestablish their peace time goals.
The USS Defiant was been purpose built to explore the stars. Filled with all of the technological advantages of its time, the Defiant puts science and exploration first, boasting impressive databases, laboratories, and sensor facilities. However, she is also one of the most heavily armed ships in the fleet. The Constitution class's versatility helps it fit most classes of mission. It’s a good thing too. The Defiant's mission is set to take her far outside of the Federation support network and she's going to face some significant threats.
Searching for a mysterious extragalactic object, the Defiant crew will be forced to make due on their own as they encounter an object like nothing they’ve ever seen before.
