Location: Earth, Starfleet Headquarters

After being coerced by the commanders of Kreanus Colony to infiltrate the Klingon Neutral Zone in order to deliver a disgraced Klingon general to the High Council, the surviving crew of USS Galileo is ferried back to Federation space to be held accountable for its actions. The subsequent journey back to Earth via Starbase 234 is long, and upon their arrival, the crew is subjected to an intense series of formal inquiries. With no official starship or captain remaining, the crew is disbanded and given extended shore leave to allow them to grieve and reunite with their companions.

Location: IKS DuJa'Q, Beta Quadrant

Stranded on Kreanus Colony for the past sixteen days, the surviving crew of USS Galileo is approached by colony administrators with a call for assistance. Due to increasing Klingon incursions into the Paulson Nebula, the sovereignty of Kreanus is now at stake and the former Federation crew must act to protect the colony's interests. Without a starship of their own, the Galileo survivors are given an old K't'inga-class battlecruiser and instructions to proceed to Qo'noS under cloak in order to negotiate with the High Council.

Location: Kreanus I, Paulson Nebula

Held captive within the newly-discovered world of Kreanus, the survivors of USS Galileo find themselves stranded inside a remote subterranean colony with little hope of contacting the Federation. Both Kreanus' fleet commander and colony administrator have made an unorthodox request for aid from the Galileo crew which would take them to the heart of the Klingon Empire to conduct treaty negotiations. The Starfleet survivors must use the next fourteen days to mourn, consolidate, and determine their next course of action. The fate of future KDF and Starfleet relations lays in the balance.

Stardate: 67958.0
Location: Paulson Nebula

While en route to Starbase 234 for stores replenishment following her recent mission on Celes III, USS Galileo receives a low-band distress call from the nearby Paulson Nebula. The transmission is heavily degraded due to nebulous interference, however the transponder appears to be from the SS Recluse -- an Antares-class dilithium freighter presumed destroyed over 40 years ago. With no other starships in the immediate vicinity, Galileo investigates the source of the signal in an attempt to locate the stranded starship and its crew...if they are still alive.

Episode 11 - Divinum Mundi

Post Count: 508

Stardate: 67837.5
Location: Celes System

USS Galileo is currently finishing the last of her repair and resupply operations at Jupiter Station when she and her crew are summoned to assist in the settling and development of a new Federation colony at Celes III. A unique planet within a trinary star system, Celes III's elliptical orbit drags the world outside of the solar system's habitable zone for several months of the year making colonization efforts extremely difficult due to the variable ecosystem.

Dr. Sable Iroh, a prominent robotics and computer expert within Starfleet's Applied Sciences Division, has recently developed a new humanoid artificial intelligence prototype which shows much promise. SFASD and Starfleet Operations have both authorized Dr. Iroh to begin practical test trials, and the colony at Celes III provides an optimal test bed for the new android. Galileo's mission is to escort the colony ship, the doctor, and her prototype to Celes III, then assist with colonial establishment and observation before reporting their findings back to Starfleet.

Stardate: 67576.5
Location: Jupiter Station

USS Galileo returns from the Mirror Universe almost two weeks after mysteriously disappearing during Starfleet's annual NIMBUS training exercise. Initially presumed destroyed with all hands lost, the starship is quickly rescued and towed to the nearest port where some of the crew reunite with their families and receive medical treatment. Galileo is then promptly dispatched to Jupiter Station to undergo further repairs and to fully debrief Starfleet Command's senior staff, and several members of the crew are invited to the Federation's premier annual science symposium to share their most current adventures and discoveries with the rest of the scientific community.

Stardate: 67552.3
Location: Nimbus Asteroid Belt

Following the completion of the NIMBUS joint-venture war games, USS Galileo has experienced a technical malfunction in its prototype secondary deflector array. As a result of being unable to correctly discharge excess power stored in the capacitors, the unstable deflector generated a graviton beam of sufficient strength and modulation to pierce the veil between realities, and pull the Nova-class starship into the Mirror Universe.

Finding themselves in an asteroid field -- the remains of the planet Nimbus -- surrounded by nothing other than empty space, and with damaged warp engines, Galileo is unable to leave her immediate surroundings. In order to survive, the crew must work together to repair the ship, keep themselves alive, and most importantly, get home.

Location: Chi'Dan Sector

Well-rested and fresh off a 30-day shore leave, the crew of USS Galileo assembles back at Starbase 84 for their upcoming deployment. NIMBUS -- the annual joint Starfleet-KDF military training exercises -- is scheduled to commence in five days in the neighboring Chi'Dan sector, and Galileo has been detached from Task Force 72.2 and reassigned as the flagship of Task Force 21. The Nova-class will be joined by four other starships to represent the Federation in the pending war games. Starfleet Intelligence reports the possibility of the KDF debuting a new Bird-of-Prey design and a new battle cloak, and Starfleet's Corps of Engineers has installed a new prototype secondary deflector array with improved electronic warfare capabilities aboard Galileo in an attempt to counter. With Starfleet's top military brass closely eying the NIMBUS exercises, newly-appointed Rear-Admiral Saalm leads her task group into simulated combat against the Klingon Defense Force's most competent captains.

Forced to use Project Sienna to avoid destruction by the Klingon Empire, Galileo and her crew are transported through space-time using the experimental device. They arrive back in the Alpha Quadrant but off-course and damaged from her previous engagements. With her power systems crippled from using the prototype, the ship is rescued by a passing freighter and towed to the safety of Vega Colony. The crew contacts Starfleet, and Task Group 72-C arrives in orbit to retrieve and deliver the experiment to Starbase 001, Starfleet's primary research and development facility located in the nearby Sol system. Meanwhile, engineering and resupply teams are shuttled down to Vega Colony, and the crew enjoys a brief 10-day shore leave while Galileo undergoes repairs and is restored to operational status.

Note: USS Galileo is on the surface of Vega IX while she is repaired, resupplied and re-crewed.

Stardate: 66230.1
Location: Beta Quadrant

Project Sienna, an experimental propulsion technology, has been arousing the suspicion of the Klingon Empire. Though the experiment is located inside of Federation territory, Starfleet sensor nets have reported increased Klingon activity along the nearby Neutral Zone. USS Galileo has just been commissioned and is sent to safely retrieve the technology and its development personnel. Due to a hasty departure, the ship must deploy from Earth without an official shakedown cruise and manned by only a skeleton crew. Once in the Beta Quadrant, Galileo will dock briefly at Starbase 234 to resupply and take on new crew before heading into Klingon space. Once inside the Klingon Neutral Zone, Galileo will be escorted across Klingon territory until she reaches Federation space and then proceed to Starbase 152, the secret location of the experiment. Project Sienna must be recovered safely at all costs.
