Space: the final frontier.
These are the voyages of the cruiser IKV Sompek. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and conquer them for the glory of the Empire.
The Four Years War is over, the Treaty of Axanar signed some 6 months ago. The Empire has taken it's measure of the Federation.
Destroying an Empire to win a war is no victory. And ending a battle to save an Empire is no defeat.
With the Empire rebuilding, exploration missions are dispatched, to seek worlds and races to bring into the Empire and strengthen it for the future. The IKS Sompek is an experiment, a crew that is far more mixed than KDF vessels tend to be. The ship itself is a prototype, an upgraded and upscaled D7, about on par with the later K'tinga class.
Gorn: Bordering the Empire, the Gorn Hegemony consists of a number of clans spread across a score of worlds. The world of Axelot II seceeded from the Hegemony and joined the Klingon Empire some 3 generations ago. The large size and great strength of Gorn makes them a valued part of Klingon ground forces.
Orions: The Orion Syndicate can be found across most of the worlds of the Alpha Quadrant, and those of the Empire are no exception. Orions are noted for their abilities where .. less than honourable ... activities are necessary. This makes them occasionally useful to have around. While not present in great numbers, some have made themselves useful in the KDF.
Ferasans: Ferasans are a genetically augmented felinoid species from Ferasa that split off of the Caitian race 800 years ago. Unlike Caitians, Ferasans are saber-toothed and some have telepathic abilities. They are bipedal, have tails that assist their balance, extended maxillary canine teeth and large eyes with excellent night vision. Their skin is covered with a soft fur coat, and their felinoid ears can pick up frequencies that most humanoids are unable to detect. Some Ferasans have telepathic abilities.
Letheans: A telepathic species, Letheans are feared and respected as mercenaries throughout the Alpha Quadrant. Letheans are bald, with a vertical bone ridge that runs across their face and heads. They have small bone protrusions that can grow along this ridge and on their cheeks, and their skin is mottled and has multiple cartilage folds. Their eyes have a reddish tint. Letheans are descended from reptiles and prefer the dark. Command crew roles:
