|The Path to 2409: Volume 10, Chapter 1||Infighting continued among the leaders of the Romulan colony worlds. While basic needs were being met and Starfleet was delivering supplies and replicators to every world that would accept their help, the Romulans lacked a stable government and the chain of command of the military was chaotic.
Throughout the course of 2389, five Romulans tried to size the emperor's throne, more than two dozen people declared themselves praetor, and at least a dozen more claimed the role of supreme commander of the Romulan fleet. Most of these erstwhile leaders fell prey to quick assassinations. A fortunate few were simply ignored.
Federation analysts agreed that the Romulan Star Empire would remain in turmoil until there was a leader who was able to command the allegiance of the majority of the colony worlds. Federation diplomatic teams attempted to organize a conference where representatives from each of the colony worlds could take the first steps to establishing a new government and choosing leaders, but the Romulans could not even agree on where the meeting should be held and the plan collapsed.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 10, Chapter 2||The Klingon Empire took advantage of the confusion with lightning strikes into Romulan space. The empire took control of the Tranome Sar and Nequencia systems in a matter of days, and was poised to strike deeper into Romulan territory.
The Klingons temporarily halted their advance when Starfleet sent a fleet to protect the Romulan/Klingon border, but tensions remained high and there were reports of minor skirmishes between Federation and Klingon starships.
The campaign to conquer Romulan space was not the only military conflict the Klingon Empire was engaged in during 2389. Their conflict with the Gorn, which had quieted after the battle for Gila IV, erupted again when the two powers struggled for control of the Gamma Orionis system.
The Gorn took the advantage when King Slathis negotiated with the Nausicaans, who agreed to contribute ships and weapons to the Gorn war efforts in exchange for rights to several asteroid belts and a substantial payment. The Klingons refused to give up the fight for Gamma Orionis, winning several battles even when outnumbered, and Starfleet Intelligence reported that there were no signs that the conflict would end anytime soon.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 10, Chapter 3||In addition, internal strife divided the Klingon noble houses. On Stardate 66091.53, Aakan of the House of Mo'kai slew K'das, son of B'vat. The death reignited a century-long blood feud between the two houses, and B'vat threw all his efforts into hunting down every member of the House of Mo'kai.
Allies of both of the noble families entered into the fight, but in the end, Aakan was the last of his house. After Aakan flees Qo'noS, he was run to ground by agents of the House of B'vat, who cornered him on H'atoria on Stardate 66306.71. Two days later, B'vat defeated Aakan in ritual combat, and Chancellor Martok formally dissolved the House of Mo'kai.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 10, Chapter 4||The Cardassians took a major step towards self-sufficiency when they voted to replace the Reconstruction Committee with democratically-elected leaders. In the weeks leading up to the election, two groups dominated the debate: a civilian coalition with Elim Garak as a prominent member, and a hardliner group calling for the Cardassians to withdraw from the Federation-Cardassian Treaty of 2386 and re-establish the military.
Garak's coalition won a narrow victory, and in its first act reformed the Detapa Council. The council faced its first controversy when it voted to send six ships to assist the Federation's recovery efforts in Romulan space; even though polls showed that most Cardassians felt that they should reserve their resources. The Federation Council's decision to cut funding for Cardassian reconstruction by 30 percent made aid to the Romulans even less popular, and support for the council plummeted.
Speaking to reporters from the shattered remains of the University of Culat, Elim Garak defended the council's actions. "We've seen what suspicion and backroom deals have brought us," Garak said. "We know what happens when we turn our backs on the rest of the galaxy and just worry about what happens on our own street, in our own city, on our own planet. Maybe it's time to try something different."
One of the first industries to be restarted in Cardassian space was mining. A former member of the military, Gul Madred, aquired the rights to several-mineral rich [sic] planetoids and began building a large mining operation in the Septimus system.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 10, Chapter 5||Federation President Nanietta Bacco focused on smoothing relations between Vulcan and other worlds of the Federation. She and Ambassador Jean-Luc Picard did much to soothe the wounds caused by the revelation that the Vulcans may have known about the threat of the Hobus supernova.
On Stardate 66839.72, the Federation Council announced the results into an investigation of the Hobus supernova and the Vulcan Science Academy's research into red matter manipulation. The council decided that the Vulcans may not have realized the full extent of the threat of the Hobus supernova, as the explosion was greater and more violent than any supernova previously recorded. In addition, the chain reaction of the detonation could not have been predicted, and the council recommended that the event be studied further.
However, the council criticized the Vulcan Science Academy for creating red matter without consulting or informing Federation authorities. In a speech before the Federation Council, Councilor T'Los of Vulcan expressed regret if any of the actions or inactions of her people caused harm to the Federation.
She announced that all of the academy's red matter was on board the Jellyfish when it disappeared, and that the Vulcan Science Academy pledged to do no further red matter manipulation research without the full knowledge and cooperation of the Federation Science Council.
To the Romulans, she directed a single statement: "We grieve with thee."
At the end of her address, T'Los said that was only logical to change who speaks for Vulcan, as the past year made it clear that she was inadequate to the task. She resigned from the Federation Council and returned home.
|Der Weg bis 2409: Buch 10, Kapitel 6||Bei Gericht machte der Fall um die photonische Lebensform, bekannt als "Der Doktor", kleine Fortschritte, nachdem er mehrere Jahre durch die unzähligen Anhörungen und Berufungen ins Stocken geraten war.
Bei Sternzeit 88954.79 entschied ein Richter der Föderation, dass die Klage auf eine Sammelklage durch alle empfindungsfähigen künstlichen Lebensformen in der Föderation ausgeweitet wird. "Hierbei geht es um mehr als nur ein Wesen und einen mobilen Emitter" sagte Alyssa Cogley-Shar, eine Anwältin der Soong-Stiftung. "Hier geht es um grundlegende Rechte."
Cogley-Shaw sagte, dass, obwohl die Erweiterung der Klage ein iahrelanges Gerichtsverfahren zur Folge haben könnte. das endgültige Urteil der Zwangsdienstbarkeit von mehr als sechshundert EMH Mark l Hologrammen ein Ende bereiten könnte.
Und wenn die Sternenflotte noch mehr ihrer Raumschiffe mit Holoprojektoren besetzt, um vermehrt photonische "Tools" wie Notfallkommandos und medizinische Notfallhologramme einzusetzen, könnten diese Lebensformen eines Tages als Offiziere der Sternenflotte mit allen Rechten und Privilegien ihres Ranges anerkannt werden.

|The Path to 2409: Volume 16, Chapter 1||Tragedy struck for Starfleet on Stardate 72487.91, when the U.S.S. Kelso was lost with all hands.
The Kelso was supposed to be on a routine mission to study the long-term effects of the Hobus supernova on star systems in the Devron Sector when it was destroyed. Initial reports indicated that the Kelso could have come under attack. However, when the remains of the vessel were recovered by the U.S.S. April, it was found that a coolant leak caused by an experimental cloaking device onboard the Kelso caused plasma to vent from the ship. The plasma reacted with ionizing radiation present in the area, causing the explosion which destroyed the Kelso.
After careful consideration, Captain Barax Wenn of the April revealed the cause of the Kelso's destruction to the captains of the Romulan ships assisting in the search for the vessel. In response, Praetor Taris lodged an immediate complaint with the Federation Council, and, as a "gesture of good faith," informed the Klingon Empire of the details of the Kelso's destruction as well.
Starfleet Security admitted that the U.S.S. Kelso was testing a Federation cloaking device. The Romulans then ejected all Federation diplomats and ships from their space in protest, and Chancellor J'mpok recalled the Klingon ambassador to the Federation back to Qo'noS for "strategic discussions."
|The Path to 2409: Volume 16, Chapter 2||After the revelation that Starfleet was testing a cloaking device, tensions between the Federation, Romulans and Klingons were at their highest point since the destruction of the Romulan homeworld in 2387. After a full inquiry, six members of Starfleet Security were court-martialed.
It took three months for Federation President Aennik Okeg to convince the Romulans and the Klingons to send representatives to a summit to discuss the situation. When the meeting finally began, Okeg made the Federation's position clear. He apologized for the experiments into cloaking technology, and said that he had signed an executive order banning all research into or creation of Federation cloaking technology.
"The narrow legal view may be that the Treaty of Algeron ended when Romulus was destroyed," Okeg said. "The Romulan Star Empire we knew is gone, and you are a new people. What has not changed is the Federation's commitment to peace."
|The Path to 2409: Volume 16, Chapter 3||Happier news for Starfleet was the successful conclusion of the dispute over the mobile emitter now in the possession of the photonic lifeform known as The Doctor.
He agreed to accept a commission as a lieutenant commander in Starfleet and took the post of chief medical officer at the research facility on Galor IV. Because the mobile emitter would be with him at Galor IV, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers would have the opportunity to study the device.
"It was never that I didn't want to let Starfleet learn more about the mobile emitter," said The Doctor in an interview with the Federation News Service. "I respect Starfleet a great deal, and I have the utmost amount of admiration for Admiral Janeway and the fine men and women in the service. I needed Starfleet to respect me."
|The Path to 2409: Volume 16, Chapter 4||On Stardate 72858.96, the Vulcans honored the 225th anniversary of the completion of work on the monastery at P'Jem. The original monastery was constructed more than 3,000 years ago, but it was destroyed by Andorian orbital bombardment in 2151.
After the founding of the United Federation of Planets was founded in 2161 [sic], a coalition of Andorian, Vulcan and Human craftsmen rebuilt the monastery using hand tools and ancient Vulcan techniques.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 16, Chapter 5||A strange incident was reported on the Klingon world of Rha'darus. While on shore leave from his duties on the I.K.S. Kang, Ja'rod, son of Torg, was ambushed by three Klingon warriors. He managed to kill two of them and brought the third back to his ship.
Expecting the attack to be from an enemy of the House of Duras, Ja'rod was shocked to discover that his attackers weren't Klingon at all! Application of a painstik forced the captive to change and its shape morphed from a Klingon to that of a strange tripedal alien.
Under questioning by Ja'rod and members of the Kang's crew, the alien revealed that it was a member of a species known by its Borg designation of Species 8472. The alien called itself an Undine, and revealed that not only was its party specifically sent to Rha'darus to capture Ja'rod and replace him, this was not the first time the Undine have done so.
There were Undine infiltrators in every major political entity of the Alpha and Beta quadrants.
Volume 17[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]
|The Path to 2409: Volume 17, Chapter 1||A medical crisis put a strain on the rebuilding of the Romulan Star Empire. An outbreak of Bloodfire ravaged the Kevratas system, ultimately spreading to multiple colony worlds.
The disease is lethal to several species, including Romulans, but is curable if treated promptly with a drug developed by Beverly Crusher. Praetor Taris seemed uninterested in treating the disease, however, preferring to stop its spread with a quarantine of the Kevratas system.
The quarantine was enforced by a blockade of Romulan ships, and stopped all food and medical shipments to the planet during its coldest season. Thousands died from disease and starvation.
"It seems like Taris is letting these people die like it's some sort of experiment to her," said Admiral Zelle, an expert on Romulan politics. "If she ever saw someone die from Bloodfire, she'd have more compassion."
|The Path to 2409: Volume 17, Chapter 2||On Cardassia Prime, Detapa Council staffers completed a three-year audit of post-Dominion War assets. The audit found that the rebuilding of cities devastated by the Dominion bombardment was proceeding ahead of schedule, and that work crews could move to Lakarian City by the end of the year.
An ominous counterpoint to the successful rebuilding of the homeworld, however, was the fact that at least 75 warships and an undetermined amount of weapons known to have survived the war were missing.
"These aren't shuttlecraft, they're Galor-class warships!" said Bajoran activist Crom Neret. "Do you know what someone could do with firepower like this? That's enough to launch another invasion!"
Starfleet hastened to assure the Bajorans and Cardassians that they are safe. "We're here. We will protect you," said Starfleet Command spokesperson Marie Durant. "We will honor our treaties with the Detapa Council, and we will assist the Cardassian Defense Force in any way we can. These ships will be accounted for."
|The Path to 2409: Volume 17, Chapter 3||Nausicaan forces working for the Gorn Hegemony destroyed three Klingon outposts with a coordinated surprise attack. J'mpok waved off accusations of being unprepared by remarking that "there are always casualties in war," and then retaliated by sending General D'ald and the Klingon Defense Force's Seventh Fleet to the Orelious [sic] system.
The fleet obliterated a hidden Nausicaan base in the Orelious IX asteroid belt, and then proceeded to hunt down and destroy every Nausicaan ship that escaped before the base was destroyed.
One ship is missing from the Seventh Fleet's attack. When Captain Klor of the I.K.S. Kang refused to fully investigate the claims of the Undine captured in the Rha'darus system, Ja'rod, the second officer, led an uprising of the crew. Klor and his first officer were executed, and the crew proclaimed Ja'rod to be the new captain.
After transmitting a coded message to Qo'noS, the Kang cloaked. Its whereabouts were unknown.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 17, Chapter 4||After the I.K.S. Kang disappeared from sensors, General D'ald ordered the ship to return to its patrol, but there was no response. At that point, J'mpok stepped in and ordered D'ald to stop attempting to locate Captain Ja'rod.
Observers of Klingon Empire politics speculated that J'mpok could be attempting to curry favor with the Houses of Torg and Duras by giving Ja'rod a free rein. Both of those Houses were among the oldest in the Empire, with ties that stretched back to the Imperial bloodline.
While their losses in the Klingon civil war of 2368 and subsequent defeats had dimmed the house of Duras' luster, there are many houses that still owed favors or outright allegiance to Duras. Also, these observers say, Captain Klor was a member of a house loyal to the House of Martok, so his death was no great loss for the Chancellor.
"Trying to understand the intricacies of the Great Houses is like trying to play anbo-jyutsu with bat'leths," said Tag Morkek of the Tellar News Service. "Everyoone is going to be bloody when it's over. There are oaths of honor and feuds that stretch back for hundreds of years, and you never know when someone's going to call in a debt taken on by your great-great-great grandfather."
|The Path to 2409: Volume 17, Chapter 5||Starfleet observation posts saw an increase in ship traffic going to the far reaches of the Beta Quadrant. Reports indicated that the Dopterians were funneling ships and supplies to Romulan exile Sela and her followers in exchange for decalithium. Ships similar to those found in reports from the U.S.S. Voyager also were sighted in the region.
Since Sela was well out of Federation space, Starfleet had no grounds on which to stop the trade. However, Starfleet Intelligence kept a close eye on the situation, and they were formulating a plan in case Sela became a threat to the Federation. Also, since decalithium is a highly restricted substance, any ore that the Dopterians brought into Federation space was subject to seizure.
|The Path to 2409: Volume 17, Chapter 6||Alexander Rozhenko returned to Earth with his son D'Vak. Rozhenko took a post teaching political science at the the Saint Petersburg State University and told friends that he was considering writing a book about his experiences on Boreth. He had no plans to return to the Klingon Empire.
And on Stardate 73963.51, Captain T'Vix of the U.S.S. Cochrane was removed from duty along with her first officer and chief of security. The Cochrane was assigned to monitor the Neutral Zone, but was recalled to Earth Spacedock days later for personnel reassignment, and the remaining crew was dispersed among more than a dozen other posts.
Starfleet gave no reason for the change in orders, and all records of what happened on the final days of the Cochrane's missions were sealed by Starfleet Intelligence.
It is believed that the Cochrane will return to duty after a refit with a new crew, but one anonymous report stated that the ship was sent to a Starfleet Intelligence starbase for analysis.

|Die Geschichte von Neu Romulus: Volume 1, Chapter 1||Two hundred thousand years ago, Dewa III was one of the primary colony worlds for the Iconians. Millions of Iconians lived on the lush, temperate planet, tended by their Dewan servants. A network of gateways connected Dewa III to the rest of the empire.
It was a paradise - if you were Iconian.
The Iconians used their advanced technology to hold their empire in an iron grip. They used "lesser" races as slaves and shock troops, plundered planets for natural resources and destroyed cities on a whim. There was no place safe from the Iconians, because their gateways enabled them to appear anywhere in an instant.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 1, Chapter 2||In an empire divided by technology, it was inevitable that there would be dissension. While the Iconians controlled their gateways and the massive city ships, they were far outnumbered by the other species, who ultimately banded together to destroy their oppressors.
Dewa was the first target for orbital bombardment. The barrage of weapons and mass drivers destroyed the geothermal taps that provided power to everything on the planet - including the gateways. Seeing their means to escape being destroyed, thousands of Iconians fled through the gateways as the bombs fell. They left most of their Dewan servants behind to die.
The assault was so great that it shifted the planet's orbit, scorching a land mass that was once home to more [sic] three million Dewans and Iconians.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 1, Chapter 3||The survivors of the Dewan bombardment were cut off from their homeworld without any of the technology they had once relied upon.
High radiation counts made large swaths of the planet of the planet uninhabitable. The ruins of the cities were toxic nightmares. The Iconians' archives and wondrous devices were lost or destroyed, so the Dewans did their best to scratch out a post-apocalyptic existence in areas that were still safe for habitation. Even then, mutations, cancer clusters and crop failures were common. Most Dewans in this era died young, which meant that knowledge of the Iconians slowly slipped away.

|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 1||Today starts the fifth year of life on the ships. It's also my fourteenth birthday. Mother gave me this recording device and said that I should keep a record of our travels, so that my children would know what life was like on the ships.
It's terrible here. We keep the ships cold to conserve power, there's never enough to eat and the environmental scrubbers can't keep up with the strain, so the air always smells.
Worst of all, there's nothing to do. Mother teaches us our lessons, and Father tells us stories about our clan and its great heroes. But they both work all the time, so mostly it's just me and Thel.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 2||Mother says Vulcan will always be home in our hearts, even though we can't live there anymore. But Thel was a baby when we left - he doesn't remember it at all. Does that mean he doesn't have a home?
Today I told him stories about Vulcan. I told him about the sky, and about walking in the Forge for days without ever seeing a building or a tree. He didn't believe me when I said there was snow at the peak of Mount Seleya, and he laughed when I told him about the time our uncle Vorth tried to tame a le-matya.
Thel will never meet Vorth, or Grandmother, or any of our family. They all stayed on Vulcan. I wonder if they tell stories about us.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 3||Every night when I go to sleep, I close my eyes and dream of Vulcan. I remember our house, and my sehlat cub I-Chek. I remember Grandmother's soft voice and when Vorth taught me how to play kal-toh.
I remember the crowds in the markets, and the spicy incense in the temples that tickled my nose. I remember playing with my friends by the city walls. But most of all, I try to remember the sunlight on my face.
I'm starting to forget what sunlight feels like.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 4||Father said we left Vulcan so we could be free. He says Surak's philosophy is a prison for the mind, and that one day we'll find a new home where we can do and act as we wish.
That didn't make sense to me. How can you imprison a mind?
He told me that Surak taught his followers that they had to suppress all of their emotions, not just the ones that cause harm. Father said that we shouldn't let anger or hate control us, but we have the right to feel them, just as we have the right to love or be happy.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 5||HISTORY TEXT GOES HERE[sic]||5|
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 6||Mother is a botanist in the hydrophonic labs. Father is an engineer. He says I can be an engineer too when I'm older, but I don't want to work with the engines. They're loud and dirty and always breaking down.
Maybe I'll be a teacher or work in a nursery. There are always new babies, and all of the adults on the ships work such long shifts that they don't spend much time with their families. Father only comes back to our quarters to sleep.
Every day is the same here.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 4, Chapter 7||Mother made us stay inside our quarters today. Yesterday too. She says it's because there is an outbreak of Arethian flu on the lower decks, but that's not the real reason.
I heard the men fighting in the food ration lines. I saw the blood, green and slick on the deck. Mother told us not to look, but later I heard her and Father talkin in low voices.She sounded worried.
We're cooped up here day after day, and it's been so long since we found a Minshara class world. People are starting to lose[sic] hope.

|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 1||When I look over these entries, it is like reading the letters of a long-dead friend. I do not entirely recognize the person I once was.
Saken is still in my heart, even thogh his katra is gone. I treasure his life. It is better than dwelling on his death.
Most of my time is spent focusing on the future of my people. I'm putting my teaching training to use as part of a group that is creating a new culture. We're even working on a new language. It uses an archaic form of Vulcan as the base, but there is little else left to tie it to our past.
It has been more than twenty years since the ships left Vulcan. If we truly want to be our own people, we cannot cling to the ways of the past. No more rituals, no more religion, no more koon-ut-kal-if-fee. Our biologists are even working on a way to purge us of the blood fever.
Our future is somewhere in the stars.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 2||We have found a new world! Sensors indicate a Minshara class planet just three light years off our current course.
With every planet we discover, hope lives. Even if this is not the one we have been searching for, at the very least it will be a chance to rest and resupply our ships.
If we stay longer than a few days, the leaders will start letting people off the ships. I dream of a chance to walk on solid ground and see sky over my head instead of metal. To feel sunlight. To have a breeze caress my face.
We cannot survive as people if we cannot leave the ships. Violence is commonplace now - two decades of close quarters have made that inevitable. I fear what will happen if we start separating ourselves into factions.
I will not lose faith. If this planet is not the right one, the next one will be.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 3||I've joined a team exploring some ruins near our landing site. They share elements with ancient settlement remains we've seen on other worlds, but we've never been able to identify their origin.
What we've found suggests that the original inhabitants of this place were very advanced technologically. Quantum dating puts the ruins at more than 150.000 years old, yet we've found signs of a power grid, devices that could be used as sensors, even the remains of an anti-gravitational device.
Who once walked in these forests amd used these tools? We've found no signs of crypts or burial sites, but someone had to have made these things. Where did they go?
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 4||Some people claiming this is a paradise. If it is, then paradise is full of dangers.
We have to wear tags to track our radiation exposure if we spend to long in the wild. Mother says she has to be very careful to sterilize any plant samples she brings aboard the ship. It's all manageable for now, but we will need to manage our stores of anti-radiation drugs very carefully.
Also we've detected pockets of geothermal instability. A plan to use geothermal power for the housing pods had to be scrapped because it could have caused a major seismic event.
The science team thinks whis was the site of a cataclysmic event or events that destabilized the entire planet. The native flora and fauna adapted long ago. We are the intruders here now.
If we stay here, we will have to adapt as well.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 5||We've been on this planet, which the leaders have named Vastam, for six months. We've conquered many of the problems we first encountered here - scorpions, storms, finding potable water. We have safe zones where we don't have to worry about the radiation. Teams are delving deeper into the caversn and trying to tame the beasts near the river for domestic use.
There are some who think that's good enough. We can continue to make improvements here, be we can't guarantee that there is a habitable planet that fits our requirements somewhere else. I think many of these people just can't face getting back on the ships and a return to the cold of space. <br.[sic] I agree with the Science Council. There is too much we would need to change about this world to live here. In adapting it to our needs we could do irreparable damage to the ecosystem. <br>[sic]
It is time to try again. We will be sending out scout vessels, but I fear unless a more suitable candidate for colonization is found soon, it will be difficult to persuade people to continue the search.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 6||The leaders announced that they would hold an open debate on the fate of Vastam. Everyone would have the chance to speak.
I admire the attempt at democracy, as misguided as it was. But too many people already had their minds made up. People started shouting, and then a man pushed the captain of the Surani. Her guards knocked the man to the ground and there were shots fired. After that, it was chaos.
I wanted to get away, take our parents someplace safe, but Thel is so impulsive. He saw two men beating old Veka, who has been outspoken about her desire to stay on Vastam. Thel plunged into the crowd toward them. That was the last I saw of him until now.
He's been badly injured. Thank the Elements that someone brought him to a healer. He's still unconscious, but the healer thinks he will survive. Others weren't so fortunate. There are more than a hundred dead, and the fighting hasn't stopped.
|The History of New Romulus: Volume 6, Chapter 7||We are leaving Vastam. As soon as the ships are resupplied we will depart forever.
Two hundred and forty seven people died in the fighting. The Sword of the Raptor Star, one of the great weapons created by S'harien before the Sundering, is gone. It was last seen in the hands of the captain of the Surani. Her body was found, but the blade is missing.
After the battles burned themselves out and the funerals were done, the leaders announced that anyone who wanted to stay on Vastam could do so, but the fleet would move on. As far as I know, no one is staying.
I have no doubt that there is still bad blood between people who survived the fighting. But no one wants a return to the wars we fought on Vulcan. No one wants to admit that is who we are.
Now people smile at one another while concealing knives.
