Welcome to the USS Minerva

We lost the war.

After six blood-soaked years, the surviving shreds of the United Federation of Planets surrendered to the Dominion. In a show of their "mercy," we were offered one chance to gather whoever we could in whatever ships we had and leave.

Never to return.

Humanity and its allies make a ragged caravan now. The Dominion swarms most of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, with orders to 'let us pass' seemingly a flexible directive.

This is the story of the USS Minerva.

Jasen stood looking outside the window as the stars streaked by, but his mind was elsewhere. The main lounge on Deck 5 was quiet, with few officers and crew members about. Most knew better than to engage the gunnery sergeant when he had THAT look on his face.

A look…

La Forge was at the flight control console of her Runabout, as the Security Officer called the Chief Engineer. She was still pouring over all of her internal databases and cross referring with the databases on the Runabout. She was trying to figure out what this Errant Program was. They…

Jasen barely dodged a group of children running rambunctious through the corridor of Deck Five. A few seconds slower and he would have been stampeded.

"Children," he shouted and the lot of them, mostly eight and nine from an assortment of races, turned and looked at him. "Don't run in…

One year, 12 days before the exodus ...

Jasen heard a loud thump, swearing and the screech of a console. The gunnery sergeant turned around to see a corporal obviously having problems with a small arms calibration station. The young human corporal was already raising his fist ...
