“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long-range risks of comfortable inaction.”
– John F. Kennedy
Welcome aboard the Federation starship USS Kennedy. The Kennedy is assigned to the Fourth Fleet’s Task Force 72 with responsibility for the border between Federation and Cardassian space.
Tensions are high in the southwestern Alpha Quadrant. Infighting and factions run rampant within the fractured Cardassian Union. Starfleet Command has taken notice, and ordered a bolstering of Task Force 72 to ensure their ability to defend Federation allies and assets along the border. With conflict seemingly imminent and tactical units being deployed en masse, Fourth Fleet Command advised a diversified approach.
Commander Andrew Callaghan has been assigned to command the Task Force’s support and negotiation vessel: the USS Kennedy. An unimposing yet capable Norway-class starship, the Kennedy’s advanced scientific capabilities and enlarged diplomatic suite make her well-suited to the task of gathering intelligence and serving as a hub for dignitaries and the important conciliatory talks that are to come.
The Kennedy is in need of Starfleet’s top diplomatic, intelligence, and science officers to successfully complete the Kennedy’s task, along with a talented crew to support and protect them.
