Nothing lasts forever. The Golden Age, a peaceful co-existence of the Federation, Klingons, and Romulans over the 40 years following the Dominion War, is over. Whether due to politics, competition over territory or resources, or age-old distrust, it matters little now. Battle lines once again are drawn.
Yet, if you ask me, something is strange about it all, something I cannot quite put my finger on. The situation changed quickly, as if the fabric of the galaxy, and our lives, was suddenly and irrevocably altered. Was this meant to be? Or was it caused by an undetected temporal incursion changing our timeline?
Since the voyage of the Enterprise NX-01, Starfleet has known about the Temporal Cold War, an attempt of beings capable of time travel to change the past to create a future in favor of themselves. We thought it had ended, but the Borg invasion of 2368 was a reminder that the temporal threat remains.
Despite directives to avoid time travel, Starfleet Operations has secretly monitored all known or potential temporal events and has taken measures to preserve the Federation timeline. Some even claim that a shadowy organization known as 'Section 31' takes these matters into their own hands...
With renewed tensions between the Federation and competing empires, we are again mobilized for war. Our orders are to rendezvous with the Aurora Fleet at Station Epsilon Ceti, taking up a defensive position near what was the Romulan Neutral Zone. There we will stand watch and our mission will begin.
That is not all. Aurora Fleet is said to be special expeditionary unit of Starfleet., capable of the most daring of spatial and temporal operations. Its orders are to preserve the Federation and its timeline at all cost. Starfleet Intelligence denies any involvement with Section 31, but we should be on watch.
Where, or when, the fleet's missions will take us not even Starfleet Command knows. All that can be said is that a great darkness looms upon us, one that will engulf the Federation if something is not done. It is up to Aurora Fleet, the finest fleet of the Federation, to place herself in darkness' way.
Aurora. A light amidst darkness. So shall Aurora Fleet be.
