Task Force 56 -- The Northern Frontier
Seven days ago, while on patrol near the Federation-Tholian border, the Defiant-class starship, USS Crucible, detected a spatial anomaly near the 329 Aurigae star system. Long-range scans by the Crucible detected immense gravitational distortions near the anomaly. With no known spatial phenomena of this type previously discovered in this region of space, and due to the limited scientific capabilities of the Crucible, the USS Cardinal is ordered to investigate.
As the Cardassian Neutral zone heats up once again Starfleet is scrambling to refit and repurpose its bases in the area, which for the last ten to fifteen years have been sorely neglected while the universe gazed towards the Romulans and the Delta Quadrant. Starbase 243 has been ordered to begin modifications to provide emergency repairs to starships in an effort to reduce ship losses in the event of a war.
The ship is to go to Yamus V, and rendezvous with the the USS Horatio who was the closest ship when the Yamans called for help. It was the Horatio who contacted Starfleet for help. The Comfort\'s goal, to discover, locate, and cure the Yamans of this plague. Will they succeed? Will they have to leave the Yamans to their fate? Tune in and find out.
The Dreadnought is sent on an embarrassing supply run following the chaotic and highly disruptive mission to rescue one of its own. It\'s destination is an otherwise unremarkable planet, the supplies are mostly medical and science in origin but when they arrive things turn sour and the Dreadnought and her crew are pressed against the wall when they stumble onto something they shouldn\'t have.
Having just finished its refit, USS Omaha is sent to a Federation colony to do a routine survey of a recently uncovered archaeological find. It\\\'s supposed to be a milk run to test out the new systems. Instead, the crew arrives to find escalating tension between the colonists and visiting archaeologists, along with a mysterious Preserver artifact that hides a dangerous secret.
After an impressive refit the USS Ranger and her new crew are sent on their first mission. A mission that let's the ship designed for exploration do exactly that. The crew have been tasked with exploring uncharted space near the borders of the Cardassian Union and Talarian Republic, with the agreement to share their findings with the Cardassian Union. When Vice Admiral Syndulla gave Commander Arlidd orders he made it very clear that the Ranger would be weeks if not longer from assistance if
