The year is 2386…

13 years ago the last great conflict of the Alpha Quadrant came to a close with the liberation of Cardassia. The armadas of the two greatest alliances in history of either the Alpha or Delta Quadrant clashed and left more death and destruction either alliance had seen.

In the wake of Victory many things changed. The Klingon Empire renewed the Khitomer Accords with the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire. The Federation creates and negotiates several new treaties with both. Surprisingly the Romulan Star Empire opens it borders and openly begins to negotiate and travel beyond its self imposed iron curtain. The energy and open trust created a new era of peace and diplomacy one which sees an expansion in all areas of culture for all

It isn't long before Federation Engineer Franz Wilson submits a new starbase design to Starfleet high command. The Harmony station as he calls it, a symbol of peaces between the three great fractions. The station will be built around the three major design ideal of each faction of the Alpha Alliance. Wilson worked closely with Engineers from both other fractions during the Domain war, coming to an understanding of their Technology and Engineer principles.

The design is passed back forth between admirals, generals, politicians and clandestine forces. Eventually a new design was created the offical Harmony Station Class. Requiring each of the race to deploy, develop and build on third of the three sectional starbase. A point where the three forces of the alliance meet was chosen and construction was began in 2377.

In the three years of its construction was completed in three years. The Harmony Station was built to be a was called by Counselor Martok a "Pa'Roj" a Fortress of Peace. A security force of the great powers of the Alpha Alliance were to staff the station to have it serve as a point of meeting between all planets and all peoples of the Alpha Quadrant.

However ten years have changed much of the Galaxy, passions of cooled, a generation raised in the shadow of the war struggle with future. Rebuilding Cardassia has become a nightmare of resources. The Ferengi Alliance is in upheaval after Grand Nagus Nox imposed new soico-economic laws. The Federation is still trying to heal the scars left by the Dominion. The Klingon are restless after a decade of peace. The Romulan Empire is still struggling with its Xenophobic pass while overture from outside forces are seen as sensuous actions. all while the Dominion continues to promise a better way for many systems then any of the Alpha Allaince.

And now the dream of Harmony Station is falling apart as the quardents tears itself appart, or can harmony be the last best hope for Alpha Alliance.

A Fortress of Peace
