• The decision is made to move the conference to the USS Vendetta for security reasons because of suspicious warp signatures in the area.

• The Federation looses four systems in the course of a month as the Cardasians march forward virtually unhindered. In response the Federation reinforces its patrols doubling the number of federation vessels on the boarder, how ever the Cardassian’s continue to hunt down individual ships, picking off Federation vessels one by one.
2408 • The Federation discovers the Cardassians are massing a fleet in the Tibrus system in preparation for an attack against a federation supply depot in the Argonas system in orbit of Aron IV. In response Starfleet immediately dispatched a fleet of their own ships into the region.

In response to the Reagan crisis, a meeting of some of the top brass of the Federation was called in order to discuss the incident and what the Federation’s response should be. It was concluded that releasing information related to the Obsidian would only lead to wide spread panic.
• The Gorn homogony sign a joint defense agreement with the new cardassian government, proving the Cardassians with access to thier experimental Co-Axial Warp technology. A fleet of Cardassian ships quickly move into Gorn space to help defend their new ally.

• The USS Vendetta is dispatched to the Centaur Nebula to deploy a highly advanced sensor probe that will observe the creation of a star system over the next hundred years.

• The Tiger Claw is discovered to be under the control of the secretive section 31 and is identified as the vessel which had raided the romulan craft. The ship is destroyed by a fire in its ordinance bay.
2409 • determined to further investigate the situation the Vendetta heads towards Romulus, and discovers the Romulan fleet which left the Federation in 2403. The Romulans implement a plan to eliminate the section 31 threat, by capturing the head of section 31. The operation how ever breaks down, and the section 31 leader is killed.
• The Federation leads a series of investigations into the very nature of Section 31. In these inquiries, known as the Section 31 hearings, a large number of admirals and captains are charged with illegal activities carried out in the name of the Federation. In coordination with the Romulan Tal’shiar and Federation Internal Security, the Federation makes over 300 arrests, court-marshalling 80 people including two admirals, stripping 90 officers of rank, in addition to a variety of other punishments.
• Planning begins for another offensive into the Occupied Territories consisting of a smaller task force landing troops on Nev’talc as well as a diversionary attack on the Da’har shipyards.
• The USS Relentless Leads a task force of 10 vessels into the Occupied territories to conduct raids on Cardassian infrastructure. The Relentless cripples the Cardassian’s ability to re-supply their lines near Nev’talc
• The initial operation was disastrous, nearly a third of the invasion fleet was lost, and Federation forces were pushed back out of the Occupied Territories. The attack at Da’har yielded far better results. 92% of ship building facilities in the region were destroyed.

• All Cardassian forces go into full retreat in an apparent withdrawal from a large section of the Occupied Territories. The reason for this withdrawl came under great scrutiny from
• There is a split amongst the admiralty on how to deal with this new situation. Many support a full push into Cardassian space, in an attempt to reclaim vast sections of the Occupied Territories. Others support a massive campaign to completely rebuild the Federation fleet before launching any offensive back into the Occupied Territories. A third moderate group wants to determine exactly what the Cardassians were planning. The Federation in turn dispatches several ships into the Occupied territories to conduct reconnaissance missions.
• A massive sub-space anomaly appears near Gamma Tauri. Prior to the event, a number of the colonies in the surrounding area had been evacuated by a secretive group named Kimira Industries. Initial fears of a Cardassian super weapon were quickly put to rest when a brief message originating from the anomaly called for the assistance of the USS Vendetta, revealing a massive incident on a secretive research complex.
• The Relentless discovers that the Cardassians are disassembling many of their forward bases and facilities. On the eighth day of her mission the Relentless encounters a massive Cardassian base in the Rakai system. Quickly returning to the Federation to report her findings.
• The intelligence reports collected by the Relentless were immediately called into question after listening Satellites detected several suspicious transmissions. It appeared that the Cardassians had fed the Relentless false intelligence.
• The USS Vendetta discovers that the Anomaly near Gamma Tauri is in fact a man made sub space super weapon designed by Kimira Industries to be used against the Cardassian people, with the intention of wiping out the Cardassian race. Unwilling to stand complacent in the face of genocide, the crew devised a plan to disable the Kimira weapon.
• Kimira Forces use their weapon to destroy a small contingent of Cardassian and klingon ships which had been in orbit of their facility. The facility is subsequently disabled, and Cardassians secure the device. Captain Rick Biessman is thrown onto the device and assumed to be lost.
• The Federation begins a massive campaign to locate the remaining devices to prevent them from falling into Cardassian hands.
