Welcome to the USS Minerva!

2292, The Federation is entering its golden age. Exploration and peaceful contact with other races are the order of the day. Starfleet, however, knows that there is a storm gathering on the horizon. In the wake of the events surrounding Project Genesis, tensions with the Klingons are still high. The incursions into Federation space by Klingon commanders Kruge and Klaa, though unauthorized by the Klingon High Council, are on the increase, pointing to a possible instability in the ruling government. The Romulans are being... enigmatic.

The Miranda-class is a proven design for exploration and defence, with missions ranging from the exciting to the mundane. The burden of safeguarding and extending the growing Federation often falls to these vessels without the glamorous rewards.

Minerva is one such 'workhorse', a sturdy ship with an experienced crew. Named after the ancient goddess of knowledge and wisdom, they are about to discover that 'routine' is only the start of the adventure, join us on our first steps into the Undiscovered Country...

ON, OFF, SAFE, NOT SAFE
ON, OFF, SAFE, NOT SAFE
ON, OFF, SAFE, NOT SAFE

How rude! Not very friendly at all.

But wait!…
