I haven't decided whether to start this up here or on RPOL, but I'd prefer to host it here. Take a gander at the intro below, and lemme know if you'd be interested in joining. It's a freeform game.
Star Trek: Dark Galaxy
The year is 2370. A terrible occurred over Wolf 359 in which more than 40 starships were destroyed by a single borg vessel. The cube then went on to earth, where the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-D, captained by Jean Luc Picard battled the cube for more than a day in a running battle that kept the borg from directly attacking Earth. In the end, however, the superior might of the invaders led to the destruction of the flagship of the Federation Starfleet, crippling it. For unknown reasons, the borg departed, leaving earth defenseless.
Taking advantage of the momentary weakness the Romulans invaded Federation space, intent on reclaiming territory lost over the past several centuries. Their sudden, vicious assault left the remains of Starfleet devastated. By 2368 Starfleet had been whittled to a quarter its previous strength, and the Federation was losing on all fronts. Late in that year the Klingons and Cardassians signed a military alliance against the Federation, vowing to see it destroyed.
On New Year’s Day, 2369, Romulan, Klingon and Cardassian bombs fell from orbit, shattering the defenseless cities of Earth, killing millions. Hearing this news, the surviving starships dispersed to the four corners of the galaxy, hoping to save some small vestige of humanity from the ravages of the enemy. One by one the Romulans, Klingons and Cardassians have hunted down and eliminated the survivors.
Only one Galaxy-class starship remains, the USS Federation, the largest Galaxy-class vessel ever created – and the last to leave Utopia Planetia Shipyards before its destruction at the hands of the Triumvirate. In her, alone, lies the hope for the future of humankind.
