Premise

Stardate the 25th Century…

The ravages of time have taken their toll upon the Milky Way Galaxy. After almost a decade of peace the historic Federation Alliance has become broken and shattered. Brutal infighting and bitter racial divides from eras past have reared their ugly heads once again threatening the fragile system. In silence the hard won peace has given way to a deafening destruction as the powerless have grown stronger and once great civilizations have been led to the brink of devastation.

The United Federation of Planets is not immune and is facing one of its greatest struggles since its founding. With the unprecedented growth of the Core Worlds those on the frontier continue to face only hardship and pain. More and more traditional values and individual freedoms are being infringed in the name of safety as more and more power is given to Starfleet and its forces. Former friends have become bitter enemies as the Klingons and the Romulans have joined forces intent on expanding their powerbase in the Beta Quadrant, while the Federation family itself starts to crack under the weight of its own history.

With dangers lurking all around an idea was born to return to the ideals of the past to secure the Federation's future. Under the orders of President Gruzy and the Federation Council, Starfleet Headquarters has revived the concept of the Starfleet Expeditionary Group. These groups of ships have been launched with one purpose: to seek out new life and new civilizations as they explore the galaxy. The most famous group of which is Battle Group Omega. Led by a dedicated team of explorers and diplomats from the decks of the infamous Starship Enterprise, these intrepid heroes will ensure that the Federation continues to go boldly where none have gone before as they embrace the values of the Federation's past…

Season 16

Crisis

Following the devastating announcement of the renewed Klingon/Romulan Alliance the United Federation of Planets has restored Starfleet Battle Group Omega to serve as a front line diplomatic, exploration, and – when needed – military response unit. Their missions are to ensure that the Federation never forgets their heritage as they boldly go where none have gone before…

… but their first mission may be their last.

The Son’a, long time nomadic adversaries of the Federation, have become the center of the latest conflict between the Federation and the Klingon/Romulan Alliance. The Klingons have reached out to the Son’a about membership in their Empire, which would become a dangerous threat to the Federation if accomplished. A diplomatic team led by the President of the Federation himself has been sent to negotiate with the Son’a while Battle Group Omega is tasked with providing security. But when a fleet of Klingon ships approaches intent on taking the Son’a bases as their own the threat of war grows ever closer.

Atlantia

Ordering a full investigation of the planet, the ships of Battle Group Omega are amazed to learn of only one difference between the worlds: the presence of a large island inhabited by Humans claiming to citizens of the lost continent of Atlantis. However, not all is as it seems on the idyllic world and the crew of the Battle Group may pay the price for unlocking the pages of history.
