Following the horrific death of President Lesia Enaren during the destuction of the Vulcanis Lunar Colony, Ambassador Gruzy of the Xindi has been elected President of the United Federation of Planets following one of the most bitter elections in modern history. It is a time of rebuilding as many have lost trust in the Federation Council and its leadership in recent years as more and more rights have been infringed in the name of progress. As darkness has grown throughout the galaxy, the growing specter of corruption has become evident within the Federation itself. The Core Worlds have continued to grow in peace and prosperity while for the worlds on the Frontier every day is a struggle to survive. Meanwhile, old friends and enemies have joined together to strike a new claim on the galaxy, intent upon leaving the Federation broken in their wake.

With the shadow of Vulcanis looming over them, the fallout of the Romulan/Vulcan reunification still fresh, not to mention the risk of war with the Klingons, the first duty of the Gruzy Administration is to restore faith in the Federation and its values. Then there are the more internal threats previously unimagined: a Federation Council that is unsupportive of the new President and has an agenda of its own. Theirs is a story different than any other in the final frontier as they navigate the scandals, threats and political scuffles that the Federation faces every day. Every decision that's made, every action taken by this intrepid men and women will affect countless lives throughout the galaxy both now and beyond…

Story arc

Season 1

Inaugural

It is a time of great uncertainty for the United Federation of Planets. Following the surprise Reunification between the Confederacy of Vulcan and the Romulan Star Empire, President Lesia Enaren has called for a ceremony honoring the Vulcanis Lunar Colony remaining within the Federation. Shortly before the rally was scheduled to start, tragedy struck as a dangerous, weaponized strain of the deadly Sha'Moy Virus was released among the populace, infecting the entire colony and leading to a disaster.

In an instant hundreds of people were fighting amidst the ruins of the once prosperous colony in a deadly struggle to survive as the dead begin to rise and feast upon the living. A desperate band of survivors led by enigmatic Xindi Ambassador Gruzy sought shelter amidst the remains of the colony's shuttle hangar, intent to survive no matter the cost. Meanwhile, in the stars above the planet, a dangerous game of cat and mouse has begun between the crew of Starfleet One and the Romulan Flagship, each intent to quarantine the situation no matter the cost.

Statecraft

President Lesia Enaren is dead, a casualty of the horrific Sha'Moy Virus that affected the Vulcanis Lunar Colony during an errand of peace. In her absence a power vacuum has emerged as the leaders of the Federation Council have begun to jockey for her vacated seat. As Ambassador Gruzy settles into his position as President Pro Tempore and prepares his own unlikely candidacy a new opponent emerges on the field, intent on furthering his people's goals on the galactic stage.

Meanwhile, at Starfleet Headquarters Admiral William Teagarden steps into the role as Commander of Starfleet following the death of Admiral Alin Mon. As he puts into play his first acts as leader of Starfleet's forces, a secret from the past puts the Admiral's entire future at risk as old loyalties emerge from the shadows.

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.

This was a joint mission with Battle Group Omega.

Organia

The diplomatic situation in the Klingon Empire is growing perilous with each passing moment. Chancellor Krenek has been killed by Mistress Akero of the villainous House of Duras. Now she is challenging the High Council for control over the Klingon Empire itself. Meanwhile, the Gorn, a race conquered by the Klingons in the late 24th Century, are in open rebellion against the Empire making this far more dangerous than any have anticipated.

The leader of the Gorn has requested a meeting with the Federation, urgently requesting to speak with the Federation and Starfleet’s Commanders at Deep Space Station K-7. His reasons are unknown for now, but things are sure to heat up when a Klingon Fleet – led by Mistress Akero herself – requests to speak with the Federation as well.

As civil war threatens to erupt in the Klingon Empire a voice from the past issues a dangerous warning for the future…

This was a joint mission with Battle Group Omega.

Redux - Season Finale - Current Mission

The worlds of the United Federation of Planets are celebrating the completion of the New Vulcan Colony in the Fontana System, a memorial to the men, women, and children who lost their lives during the Vulcanis Lunar Colony Disaster. President Gruzy, a survivor of the Vulcanis Disaster, is excited to christen this next chapter for the Vulcan citizens within the Federation, but all that is put at risk when a shadow from the past threatens the future.

Real World

Starfleet One is the spinoff of the long running Continuing Voyages roleplaying game. Unlike traditional Star Trek PBEM games, Starfleet One is unique in that it explores the Administration of a Federation President and his staff as they try to keep the final frontier afloat amidst a galaxy of change. This is a strongly character focused game where players are encouraged to explore their own stories, their own agendas, as they also play in the stories of others. Focused on all players having fun, Starfleet One is a game designed for those interested in complex stories that may not always be about journeying through the final frontier.
