Welcome to Project Delta: USS Pioneer
Welcome to CAPT Cronin Keys, CO of the USS Pioneer and Project Delta!
USS Pioneer is assigned to the Delta quadrant, at the beginning of Starfleet’s exploration initiative for the quadrant by a Task Force of 10 starships. Their base of operations will be the asteroid colony of the Talaxians that USS Voyager encountered prior to getting home. The Pioneer’s first mission is to assist with their move to a new world.
The Federation Council is interested in learning about the state of affairs going on in Delta since Voyager’s return to the Federation 20 years ago. The Council wants to form diplomatic ties including trading pacts with those races Voyager had successful First Contact with. The second primary reason the Council authorised this mission is to fix all the issues Voyager’s crew caused and maybe investigate the Borg Collective’s current status and activities since Voyager’s report of destroying the unacomplex that housed the Queen and one of six Transwarp hubs on their way back to Earth.
Along with the Federation Expeditionary Task Force, a small Merchant Marine and Colonial convoy would initiate all the trading side of things while Starfleet will be supervising and working towards diplomatic relations while the rest of the explorer purposed starships in the group survey the unknown and re-evaluate the known space Voyager passed through.
