Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The crew of the USS Pioneer (NCC-1084), commanded by Captain Benjamin Kelsoe, begin the exploration of a region of space that has yet to be surveyed by the United Federation of Planets. Beyond Deep Space Five lays the Oralian sector, a region of space once dominated by the warlike So'ja, whom have since come to be on friendly terms with the Federation. However, not all of the So'ja are pleased with their government's close ties to the Federation. Kelsoe and his crew are about to find themselves in hostile territory. On their journey they'll meet new friends, and new enemies... some of which are more powerful than they could ever have imagined.

Story arcs[edit | edit source]

All series have overarching story arcs, but in many cases various smaller or larger story arcs form. Some are simple and some are complicated. Some are finished and some are left unfinished.

This was the first arc that was created. It begins with "The So'ja Incident" (1.01) and ends with the "The Removal" Part 2 (2.11).
