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.
