Mission Summary

While exploring a section of the Volan Expanse, the Defiant discovers a strange anomaly they believe to be a wormhole. Heading there to investigate, they arrive in time to witness the emergence of a massive, but badly damaged, ship.

The vessel is an Ark built by the Volan people, the once great race from which the Expanse gets its name. Having lost their empire and eventually their homeworld, the Volan escaped aboard the large craft, headed for a planet they call Selona.

Unfortunately, the Defiant crew soon discovered that Selona was an inhabited world, with a thriving pre-warp population. The crew attempted to negotiate a different option, but those talks were interrupted when a group of young Volan men took attack ships to assault Selona.

The Defiant pursued them and managed to disable the ships, only for the Selonans to launch a nuclear tipped rocket at what they likely perceived as a threat, causing one of the Volan ships to crashland on the planet. The crew managed to rescue the crashed Volan ship and destryo the evidence. The Defiant then returned to the Ark to hammer out the final agreement.

The Volans are now settled on one of the outer moons of the Selonan system, under the watchful eye of Starfleet.
