"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." - Anonymous
Over two decades have passed since the onslaught that was the Dominion War but families still cry and soldiers still mourn. Federation citizens would be living in the utmost fear if it wasn't for one force... one entity... one power, that has kept them safeguarded from evil for hundreds of years - Starfleet.
The spirit of this force used to be represented in the workhorse ships of days gone by, the classic Miranda class or resilient Excelsior class. Now it lives on in the newest ships of the line... the sleekest, most technologically advanced starships - it is these ships that are the pillar of the Federation and represent unalterable and undeterrable integrity, vigilance and principle. Starbase Vanguard played its part for many years and stood strong during the Dominion War - now it wants to carry on it's original mission... it's original charter... the pursuit of peace and prosperity, and the never-ending journey to seek out new life and new civilizations. But it is ever-ready to use itself in defence of those principles which it holds so dear, once again, if needs be.
