Stardate 49427.7 The Year is 2371 and the Federation faces a new and very dangerous threat from the Gamma Quadrant. Much is still unknown about our aggressors: the Jem’Hadar. During our last excursion through the wormhole in 2370 to recover Commander Sisko from Jem’Hadar soldiers, the Federation suffered the loss of the Galaxy-Class vessel, U.S.S. Odyssey. That it was the result of a suicide run by a Jem’Hadar Attack Ship only confirms the Dominion’s resolve. We still have interests in the Gamma Quadrant and must work to avoid further direct confrontation with the Dominion, while we prepare to face this threat.
