In 2380, the Alpha Quadrant is still reeling from the recent Dominion War. Although the victory was won, the stability of the Federation has been pushed to its breaking-point. The road to reconstruction will take ingenuity, strength of will, and most of all: time.
Design note: When I decided to attempt a (third!) Star Trek homebrew, I pitched three ‘eras’ to a friend of mine: (1) Kirk’s time, (2) sometime between Archer and Kirk (apparently this is the period the new show will cover?), and (3) post-Deep Space Nine. Basically, I wanted to avoid The Next Generation completely. Which is weird, because that’s my favourite series.
I’ll probably talk more about this topic in a future blog. For now, enjoy the introduction to what I think is a cool concept for a Star Trek setting.
