Star Trek: Federation Legacy, abbreviated Federation Legacy, is a fan fiction story by CaptFredricks, created on 11 June 2013. The story is comprised of 23 chapters (and two special chapters) and is ongoing.
Federation Legacy is based on the Federation missions in Star Trek Online, but it makes use of numerous original characters and events as well. This is increasingly the case in later chapters, as the writing has improved over time.
This is the first of CaptFredricks' stories to be published on FanFiction.net. The original first two chapters were given complete rewrites in early 2014 both because CaptFredricks believed they were outdated and because the STO missions on which they were based had been removed from the game at that point.
After a failed away mission leads to the deaths of several crewmen, Jason Fredricks begins having qualms about serving in Starfleet. The crew attempts to adjust to Jason's replacement, Commander Jarek Davis.
Following a lead given by the Orion defector Marta, the USS Leviathan is sent to the Briar Patch to find a hidden Klingon base there. After suffering through the trauma brought on by the death of Jhael Onika, Phil Schrader considers stepping down from the position of chief engineer.

The crew of the USS Leviathan deals with the aftermath of their two engineers' deaths during an assignment to the Federation-Klingon border. While there, they uncover a secret Klingon plot to use genetic engineering for an unknown purpose.
Star Trek: Federation Legacy was first conceived by CaptFredricks in 2012, some months after he joined Star Trek Online on 2 May 2012. The idea for the story sprung from his first character, Jason Fredricks, and Jason's bridge officers (which later became the command crew of the USS Leviathan in the story). He began writing a rough draft late in 2012 which became "Khitomer Crisis". Its story covered the first half of STO's tutorial missions.
