Truth, Justice, and the Federation Way
Group Post Count: 409
The Arcadia rescues the USS Themyscira and her crew, refugees from a dystopian future, where the once proud Federation had succumbed to fourteen years of devastating war. Captain Nami Ishikawa, commanding officer of the Themyscira and a woman whose past is inseparably intertwined with Oliver's future, details the dark days that are to befall the Federation, but there is something even darker that she hides. Will the crew of the Arcadia find out her true mission before it is too late? Is there a price too high for justice? Is there a price too high for saving the Federation?
25 years in the future, in the year 2416, the 2nd Dominion War has dragged on for more than 10 years. Fighting alone, the Federation is slowly, but steadily, losing the war.
When Marine General Ardon Bolanus, a highly decorated and respected career officer, seizes power on Earth in a coup d'etat, promising an end to government corruption and a path to final victory, the former crew of the USS Bunker Hill, who have long since gone their separate ways, suddenly find themselves on opposing sides of a bloody civil war.
As the Dominions continue to advance, as the Federation inches toward collapse, some ask: "To save the Federation, is there a price too high?"
"No. And Temporal Prime Directive be damned."
As the USS Bunker Hill undergoes extensive refit, some of its crew, including Captain Oliver A. Lee, are reassigned to the newly commissioned USS Arcadia, the second ship of the Elysium class and a crown jewel of Starfleet. As the crew gets to know their new ship and their new shipmates, an admiral with a grudge against the Arcadia's new commanding officer comes aboard for a snap inspection. What could possibly go wrong?
