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.

It had taken approximately seventy-five minutes to approach the planet of Golyat. The USS Minerva dropped out of warp at nearly 1430 hours to find a planet that looked kind of like Earth but with more brown visible from the sky.
