IC: Federation Council Deliberates New Vulcan

November 3, 2427 - The Federation Council announced plans to colonize the forth planet of the Trimble System in the Beta Quadrant as New Vulcan for the Confederacy of Surak.

A Class-M planet with an expansive ring system, the planet is very similar to Vulcan itself and features an expansive desert that spans almost the entire world. While the temperature is still higher than average for most Class-M planets, the temperature averages 15 degrees lower than Vulcan's Forge. Another impressive feature is an expansive mountain range in the northern hemisphere where snow storms are common year round.

With Reunification and the recent destruction of Vulcanis Lunar Colony, the last colony of Vulcans loyal to the Federation, morale throughout the Federation is at an all time low. Many are excited about the prospect of a new home for the Vulcans in the Federation; however, several members of the Federation Council have expressed opposition to the plan. Ambassador Caxl of Benzar is a leading opponent to the plan and has expressed concern that the Klingon Empire would be a dangerous threat to the safety and security of the new colony should the Khitomer Accords break down.

Daeren Iril, President Gruzy's recently appointed Secretary of Defense, has been dispatched with representatives of the Federation Bureau of Colonization, representatives of the Confederacy of Surak, and the crew of the Starfleet vessel Jerrado to investigate the planet and its safety needs. Starfleet has already announced its intention to build a Station in orbit.

The Federation News Service will continue to monitor and report on any developments related to the colonization of New Vulcan.
