Later, when her father has gone to sleep, she informs her mother of her desire to run away from home and begs her mother to join her. Arwa declines to leave, fearing reprisal from Zaddo, but gives her daughter her blessing.

Natale stows away onboard a cargo freighter bound for Earth, the Rhapsody Rabbit Gavilán. Shortly after takeoff she is discovered and made to work in exchange for her passage. The captain of the ship, Tabatha Chase, takes the teen under her wing and promises no harm will come to her when she hears why the young Orion ran away, even going so far as to offer her a permanent place on the crew. Natale politely declines, citing a desire to enter Starfleet Academy.

The young woman spends a lot of time around the San Francisco campus of Starfleet Academy trying to get up the courage to approach one of the officers there to ask for help in gaining sponsorship.

The mission is successful due in no small part to the assistance of a large number of Klingon warships appearing in time to turn the tide of battle to the Allies' favor.

The U.S.S. Ireland, as part of the Fifth Fleet, takes part in Operation Return.

** The Excelsior-class U.S.S. Sherwood is one of nearly three dozen vessels lost at the First Battle of Chin'toka. Only about one tenth of the crew survives the battle—Cmdr. Dominic Deluca, Lt. Arkhet djan Zabrak, and Ens. Zachary Hillstrand are among the 75. DeLuca's life and ability to walk are saved by Dr. Calista Nir'ahn on the Virginia Apgar, the ship that picked up the Sherwood survivors. He and Nir'ahn strike up a friendship, and he sticks her with the moniker "Blue Angel".

The Messenger is one of the few ships to survive the First Battle of Chin'toka intact, though not without extensive damage and personnel losses. Captain Devonshire is killed in the battle; her first officer and chief engineer are badly wounded.

The Georgetown takes part in the First Battle of Chin'toka. Her first officer is killed and the captain incapacitated by an injury, leaving second officer Synnove Natale in charge. She is promoted to Captain by Starfleet and left in command of the ship.

They assist with destroying three Jem'Hadar attack ships; in the battle, the Messenger's pilot is badly wounded and the helm rendered inoperable. Charlaine Tucker declares she can fly the ship from the science console and is successful. Captain DeLuca rewards her with a field commission to ensign. When it is determined that the pilot will not soon recover, he names her as conn officer.

Dominic DeLuca learns that the commander of the Klingon ship is his father, whom he has not seen since his birth. 

February
Alok becomes a civilian contract operative for Starfleet Intelligence. His "brother" Alex is granted an officer's commission in Starfleet and is assigned to the U.S.S. Wolfsong.

The teams approach the facility from opposite sides and find themselves walking into an ambush. When Marine Special Operations Command orders a retreat, Peck's team is able to withdraw but Nivik's is not. Word later reaches MARSOC that all four members of the captured team were executed.

September

Felicity Bowman is assigned to Triumph for her field study.

December
Columbia takes part in the Battle of Cardassia, the final engagement of the Dominion War. 

2376
January
All of Starfleet's remaining personnel, officers and enlisted alike, are awarded the Dominion War Campaign Ribbon in recognition of their endurance.

Vice Admiral Elliot Haywood of Starfleet's Special Projects Division is tasked by Admiral Necheyev with formulating a plan for peaceful relations with the Cardassians. He proposes turning Empok Nor into a functioning starbase, that it might become a center for trade as did Deep Space Nine. 

Although met with some resistance due to the involvement of Starfleet, the new Detapa Council approves the Federation's proposal, even going so far as to give Starfleet command of the station and the authority to change the station's name if they so desire. 

Reformation of the 11th Fleet (to be assigned as the Starfleet presence in Cardassian space) intensifies, although with resources already spread so thin, Vice Admiral Tattok—who is assigned as Fleet Commander—is forced to rely on a number of older vessels with modern refits for the first phase of the project.

The Maquis who were conscripted into service during the war are cut loose. Roijiana petitions Starfleet for re-instatement. Her initial request is summarily rejected.


Thousands of third- and fourth-year academy cadets are graduated ahead of schedule to make up for the fleet's staff shortages. All cadets who receive early commissions are informed that they must complete their academic course work via correspondence. Anyone not making the grade will be made to return to the academy in the fall. 

February
Synnove Natale meets with Vice Admiral Tattok, who informs her that the Federation Council has reached an agreement with the new provisional government on Cardassia for Starfleet to aid in the refurbishing of Empok Nor as a functioning starbase. He then tells her she has been selected to be its first commanding officer.

Captain Lindze Regan learns her ship, the U.S.S. Columbia, has been reassigned to the 11th Fleet.

Ryan Bennington is promoted to captain. 

Captain Regan is informed that the Marine platoon will not be immediately reassigned, as they will provide additional security while in Cardassian space.

Darien Serri's position as acting chief engineer is made permanent. Lieutenant Narok, a Saurian, becomes Assistant Chief Engineer.


Admiral Ross once again personally selects Jordan Kelley for an assignment; this time, he is to be the Tactical Defense Officer on Empok Nor.

When word reaches him that Starfleet has been invited by the new Cardassian government to assist in restoring Empok Nor into a functioning starbase, Grafydd sends a request to Admiral Tattok that he be assigned to the project. He is the only member of the Starfleet contingent not reporting to Cardassian space because ordered to do so. Tattok mentions the request to Synnove Natale, and she takes him on as Chief Engineer.


The Federation Council releases a territory-wide press release imploring civilians with medical, mechanical, and technological training to sign up for temporary tours-of-duty with Starfleet, to last for a period no less than one year and no more than four. Dr. Maggie Garcia—after discussing the matter with her husbandcommits to what she sees as a patriotic duty and signs up for one year. She is sent to Starfleet Medical Headquarters in San Francisco on Earth for an advanced training regimen with dozens of other doctors and medical personnel.


The Messenger picks up a distress signal from the U.S.S. Andromeda and attempts to make contact. Though warned away by the ship's captain, DeLuca chooses to investigate. Once at the Andromeda's location, the away team finds that their sister ship picked up the remnants of a Dominion science experiment, which has taken over both the ship and crew. A solution to free the Andromeda crew is devised, but in order to prevent the enemy from achieving their goal, Messenger and a number of other Starfleet ships are forced to destroy the Andromeda.

March
The Columbia, along with an escort by the U.S.S. Triumph, ferries Captain Natale and nearly a hundred engineers and security officers to the Trivas System, where Empok Nor is located. A casual remark by Natale leads to the station being redesignated Sanctuary. Seven hours after arriving at the station, Natale learns that one tenth of the crew will be comprised of Cardassians. 

Eton Kirek is selected by the New Detapa Council to be First Officer of Sanctuary.

Gilora Rejal, a Cardassian subspace specialist, is named Senior Science Officer.

Within days of their arrival, the repairs and upgrades to Sanctuary's systems begin breaking down, even after just being worked on. The crew is forced to conclude that there is a saboteur among them.

Due to overwhelming reports of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affecting surviving Border Patrol, Marine, and Starfleet personnel, the Federation Council draws up a motion that comes to be known as the Mental Health Act of 2376. The motion states that all military vessels and facilities must have on staff at least one certified counselor, who can either be specifically trained or an officer in another position with the credentials and ability to perform double duty.

April
Maggie Garcia learns she is to be sent to Sanctuary with the provisional rank of Lieutenant as Sanctuary's Chief Medical Officer. Miguel demands she request a less dangerous assignment and she complies, but the request fails to be granted. She moves into guest quarters on the U.S.S. Trident in preparation for the trip to Cardassian space.

The Trident launches from dry-dock; however, the new upgrades prove to be too great a strain on the ship's existing computer core. Following a complete systems failure, the ship is towed back into dock. It is decided to replace a third of the existing isolinear circuitry with bio-neural gel packs—a procedure expected to take three months. 


The final complement of security and engineering personnel arrive at Sanctuary.

Having taken her case all the way to Federation Supreme Court, Roijiana's petition for re-instatement is granted on the basis of a desperate need for trained officers to make up for staff shortages. The successful campaign to return to duty is not without it's drawbacks, however: Roijiana must accept a demotion in rank to Lieutenant, as well as being ineligible for promotion for a minimum period of five years. 

In what she sees as a form of punishment for her defection, Roijiana is assigned to Sanctuary as Senior Counselor.

May
Saavedra is promoted to senior medical technician.

Thackery Josen is promoted to lieutenant.

June
Trident successfully launches from spacedock two months ahead of their projected launch date and begins the journey to Sanctuary with the station's compliment of science and medical staff.

Upon arrival at Sanctuary, Dr. Garcia is immediately inundated with patients, most of them Starfleet officers who refused to be treated by the station's Cardassian doctor, Nariska Messar.

Admiral Tattok arrives at Sanctuary via his personal runabout with his chief of staff, Rkasi Cen. An explosion as they are walking through the airlock nearly kills them both, though it is later discovered that Cen is a Maquis operative and that he is the one responsible for the attempt on the admiral's life. 

The U.S.S. Pericles gets into trouble confronting two Cardassian Galor-class ships. The U.S.S. Veritas and the Trident intervene, saving the Pericles and the civilian freighter Sally Mae, and in the process learn that the Cardassian purist group True Way is still active.

Alok is assigned to Sanctuary as their intelligence officer.

A mysterious stranger helps Rkasi Cen escape as he is about to be transported to a penal facility on Garon II. The Triumph takes damage during the escape, and Lt. Commander Kelley determines that a human helped Cen escape, leading to the conclusion that it was a Maquis operation.

The Columbia intercepts the Denobulan freighter Cen escaped on, and a brief battle ensues. The Maquis operatives—including Cen—are transported aboard, but during a search one of the men overpowers the guards and frees his comrades. They make it to the main shuttlebay and escape in a runabout, but the small vessel is sabotaged by an undercover agent of the Federation Security Bureau. 

Columbia
 retrieves the runabout and the prisoners and transports them to Garon II while Commander Silmar, Captain Bennington, and FSB agent Tahir fly the freighter and its contents back to Sanctuary.

Anjali is promoted to Commander.

Master Chief Dilik Zram is confronted with evidence of misconduct and Captain Natale orders him into counseling to deal with his anger issues. The saboteur is caught at last when he makes his biggest mistake—threatening harm to the only child of Eton Kirek.

Ambassador Ohton Sanbo visits Sanctuary. Eton Kirek confronts the Selkie politcian about fears he has kept secret regarding whether or not the Federation is planning to occupy the Cardassian Union.

Felicity Bowman transfers to Sanctuary and is named Chief of Operations.

July
Civilians begin arriving at the station, mainly shopkeepers and other merchants, as well as the crew's family members. 

Nadia Lawton, a chef famous throughout the Federation, leases the tri-level bar; she and the crew she has hired turn the place into a posh restaurant, which she names Nigella's in honor of one of her ancestors. The restaurant is open by the middle of the month.

Brim, a Ferengi well known in several star systems for being the owner of a number of hair salons, opens another such business on Sanctuary.


Hyasieth Zael'Izani is promoted to commander.


Jordan Kelley is promoted to commander.

August
Sylari is given leave to attend the wedding of her academy roommate on Deep Space Nine. During her return trip, she encounters a rogue meteor shower and the shuttle she is piloting is heavily damaged. Sylari crash-lands on a planetoid several parsecs from Bajor. 

Alok and a medic are dispatched from Sanctuary to search for Sylari. When they find her she is discovered to be suffering from retrograde amnesia. After several medical exams, it is determined that Sylari will mind meld with her father to unblock her memories.

Following the mind meld with Silmar, Sylari regains her memories. She and Alok, who have fallen in love, decide to become bondmates. Sylari then requests a transfer to Sanctuary so that she and Alok can remain together.


Admiral Tattok is forced to accept that he is not entirely himself, and leaves the running of the 11th Fleet in the hands of Valerie Markham, the commodore that commands the 11th's flagship. The admiral's indefinite leave of absence takes him to Bajor in search of balance and peace.


Grafydd is promoted to Commander.


Eshiia Ja-Nareth is promoted to lieutenant.


October

Catherine Ross puts in her request for a starship billet.

November

3  Synnove Natale convinces Brian Wallace to join her for dinner at Nigella's. The pair try a new drink the restaurant introduced the night before, a d'quir. Jordan Kelley also tries the new beverage, as does Darrien Serri and Maiandra Tyrel of the Columbia and a few dozen others. 

4  Natale awakens to find Wallace in her bed. They are naked, but she does not remember anything beyond her second drink. After Wallace wakens, they argue about the state of their relationship and he storms out. 


Jordan Kelley wakes to find a woman in his bed, which horrifies him because he is attracted to men and trying to start a relationship with Rogan Enek. Rogan shows up at his quarters for their breakfast date while the woman, a Betazoid named Tiessi, is still there. An angry Rogan punches Kelley when he realizes what happened and storms off. 


Serri wakes to find Maiandra in his bed. He is pleased, but fearful of her reaction, and that of her over-protective brother. When she wakes, the two confess they have liked the other for a while but each had reservations regarding her brother. They decide to pursue a relationship anyway. Around midday, Serri visits Maiandra in Club Ten and is witnessed kissing her by Rokha Tyrel. Serri, though intimidated, stands up to Tyrel and declares he must accept that his sister is grown and will pursue relationships, that he and Maiandra are going to be together. Tyrel grudgingly accepts, though threatens to break his neck if he breaks his sister's heart.


Dr. Garcia informs Captain Natale that there has been an increase of nearly 300% for emergency contraceptives. The captain inquires about the activities of the recipients and is told they had all visited Nigella's and consumed the new drink. Natale orders it confiscated and examined, and Garcia discovers a potent aphrodisiac—Axanar triglobulin—is one of the ingredients. Natale learns just prior to the doctor's discovery that she and Kelley had a similar morning; now they both have an explanation for their out-of-character behavior.


Columbia is sent off in pursuit of the Ferengi merchant who sold the d'quir to Nadia. When he is captured, they transport him to DS9 for trial.


Kelley records a message of apology to Rogan, explaining about the triglobulin. Rogan's reply states that he believes him, but knowing what he does makes it difficult for him to continue their relationship. 


— Though she had convinced herself she wouldn't need an emergency contraceptive, anxiety drives Natale to conduct a tricorder scan of herself to confirm her belief. Instead, she finds that she has conceived. Her anxiety goes into overdrive as she begins to fear what will happen when her father finds out.


10 — Natale is confronted by Kelley about her avoidance of social activity. As they had confided in each other days before, she confesses her condition. He implores her to work things out with Captain Wallace and also assures her that her friends will support and protect her from Zaddo Natale. She later makes her confession again to Grafydd, who aids her in reconciling with Wallace by being the one to show him the video from her father, which she had kept as a reminder.


Wallace transports into Natale's quarters on the station. They have an emotional reconciliation, wherein he forgives her for pushing him away and they confess a deep love for one another. He manages to convince her that they can have a relationship out in the open as well as keeping their new family safe.


December

Messenger's CMO, Maureen Killian, informs Captain DeLuca that a former professor of hers from the medical academy is retiring and has specifically requested she take his place. Because she has always wanted to teach, she intends to accept, thereby opening up her position. Killian learns before he does who Command chooses to take her place, and arranges to surprise him with his "blue angel".

23  Thackery Josen and his fiancee, Inara Kirin, are attacked on the street during a visit to Risa—Josen is severely wounded and Inara is killed. Doctors are barely able to save the Kirin symbiont.


24  Jacen Faris joins with Inara's symbiont and becomes known as Jacen Kirin per Trill tradition.


31  Synnove Natale and Brian Wallace are married in an intimate private ceremony at Nigella's. They are to honeymoon for a week on Bajor.

2377
January
 Natale returns from her honeymoon just in time to learn that she and most of the Starfleet officers aboard the station are being reassigned; the Cardassians will be taking command of Sanctuary. Due to their experience in operating a starbase, Natale and crew are being moved to an actual Starfleet base that is near ready to go operational. Her fear of a few months before returns when she learns where Starfleet Command wants to send her: to the edge of the Borderlands, only a sector away from where her father operates his criminal empire. 

Grafydd is surprised to be asked by newly promoted Gul Kirek to remain at Sanctuary as chief engineer. Having developed a fondness for the Cardassian architecture, the Terellian agrees.


10 — After delivering Dr. Killian to Earth for her new position, Captain DeLuca finally learns who will be taking her place. He is delighted by the revelation that it is the Andorian beauty who saved his life after Chin'toka. Dr. Nir'ahn is equally as excited to be working with him. A promotion to lieutenant commander is granted on her acceptance of the transfer.


15  Thackery Josen's older brother, Teris Nade, takes him on a hike in the mountains near their home on Trill. A rockslide mortally injures Teris; Thackery is torn between staying with his brother and going for help. Teris begs Thackery to take his symbiont before he dies, before Nade dies and centuries of knowledge is lost. Thackery is resistant to the idea, because in order to save the symbiont he would have to do the surgery there on the mountainside with a basic medkit. Eventually he relents and performs the dangerous operation, saving the Nade symbiont, but he misses the passing of his brother soon after, being overwhelmed by the personalities of the previous hosts. He begins to wander around, thinking he has lost his mind.


20  A semi-delirious Thackery is discovered by hikers and taken to the nearest hospital; his parents are relieved he is alive, as Teris' body was discovered a day after the accident. He is sedated and evaluated, and when he wakes he learns that it is too late to remove the symbiont without risk to his life. He takes his doctors' suggestion to attend classes designed to help emergency hosts learn to deal with being joined.


February

Admiral Tattok returns to command of the 11th Fleet, though within a week he learns the fleet may be disbanded and he is being reassigned. Eventually he takes a position as interim assistant director of Starfleet's Operations division. 

Starfleet and Border Patrol command officers, in conjunction with the Federation Council, ultimately decide not to disband any fleets, but to redistribute vessels in both organizations for more even coverage of Federation space. They also elect to return as many spaceworthy training and museum vessels to active duty as possible so as to bolster fleet numbers. Further, they decide to re-establish an old program called Accelerated Occupational Placement, in which cadets in their 3rd and 4th years are assigned to starships and bases not just to learn but to be active members of the crew. Upon successful completion of the program, they will be rewarded with immediate elevation to lieutenant, junior grade rank.


The 11th Fleet is reassigned to operate in the Beta Quadrant based out of Starbase Echo, with the 9th taking over Starfleet operations in Cardassian space. The Ireland is made flagship of the fleet due to being the most tactically superior vessel. The Border Patrol's 7th Cutter Squadron will also call Echo their home base.


Naoki Sulu is promoted to captain and assigned command of the U.S.S. Republic, the oldest active-duty vessel in the Federation. She takes charge immediately and oversees systems overhauls that will ensure more efficient operation and defensive capabilities. She also learns that her son, Takeshi, has been selected for the AOP program. He is initially assigned to the Republic, but the academy's liaison on Starbase Echo moves him to the Messenger to eliminate any potential for nepotism.


March
The majority of Sanctuary's command staff take the same positions at Starbase Echo. An exception is Roijiana; she is no longer the station counselor, but is one position below the post. Another exception is Sylari, who although still serving as a pilot, is now a member of the starfighter squadron. The young Vulcan is promoted to lieutenant, junior grade. Her husband, Alok, requests a transfer to the station to remain near her.

Anjali from the Columbia is promoted to commander and assigned as station counselor due to her higher rank and the number of staff the station will have. Silmar is assigned as the station's Starfleet Intelligence liaison, and learns he will be the coordinator for SI operatives in the Borderlands. Jacen Kirin is also pulled from the Columbia; he expresses some pleasure in returning to his old starfighter squadron, especially as it is accompanied by a promotion to lieutenant.

Hyasieth Zael'Izani is assigned as executive officer of Echo due to her intimate knowledge of the station's structure. She recommends Simba D'Puma for chief engineer.


Thackery Nade is assigned to Echo as the station's chief medical officer. He is promoted to lieutenant commander. He and Jacen Kirin do their best to stay clear of each other after their first few encounters end with heated words being exchanged.


Against her wishes, Admiral Ross uses his influence to get his daughter Catherine assigned to Starbase Echo as senior science officer. He hopes that her promotion to lieutenant commander, also managed by him, will appease her anger at his interference.


Anwen Rhydderch unexpectedly returns to Starfleet after only a year with the Border Patrol to take the position of wing commander of the Wild Angels Starfighter Squadron, a post granted because of her Level 5 flight certification. She also receives a promotion to full commander.


Keel McMurty is personally recommended by Vice Admiral Montgomery Scott to take the position of Yardmaster, placing him in charge of Echo's 12 repair docks.


Luke Mason is offered a position with the Wild Angels. He is happy to accept, as it means he will still be close to Fairuza Lahn, the Trill scientist he has been crushing on for the last year; she has been transferred from the Blackfin as well to work on Starbase Echo. 


Eshiia Ja-Nareth requests a transfer to Starbase Echo, citing a need for skilled diplomats in such a volatile area of space—not to mention the likelihood of needing mediators to settle the inevitable disputes between Starfleet and the Border Patrol. She is made diplomatic liaison due to her forethought on both fronts.


July
Kratul is promoted to lieutenant.

December

22 — Columbia and San Francisco are two of 27 starships mobilized to fight an imminent Borg incursion in the Sol System. A Borg sphere emerges from an aperture in sector 001, less than a lightyear from Earth, but explodes moments after the task force opens fire. From the midst of the explosion appears the U.S.S. VoyagerColumbiaSan Francisco, and the other 25 ships serve as an honor guard, escorting their lost sister home.

2378

May
15  The Nova-class U.S.S. Journey, NCC-2063, launches from Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards under the command of Captain Oliver Harris. 

25 — On course for Rentara Prime, Journey encounters a powerful electromagnetic storm that causes massive damage to the ship, including the explosion of their port nacelle. Numerous crew members are injured while Captain Harris and Chief Engineer John Pool are killed in action.


Lieutenants Tanis and Praeger take one of Journey's shuttlecraft ahead to Rentara Prime in order to aprise their assigned ship's counselor, Dr. Gillon Marcan, of the vessel's status.


26 — Commander Serutian Hale, first officer of the U.S.S. San Francisco, is placed in command of Journey by Admiral Elliott Haywood of Starfleet's Special Projects Division; she receives a brevet promotion to the rank of captain. Hale asks T'Rae, the San Francisco's chief engineer, to fill the open position of Chief Engineer on her new command.
