The year is 3029.
You are a member of the affectionately nicknamed Starblaster (really the ST47-BARRA), a state-of-the-art Alliance starship-cruiser outfitted and manned by the six different council races in a show of good faith after a hundred years of normalised diplomatic relations following the First Contact wars. The crew is a veteran crew, some members having rotated out on different missions in the past, and often you will run into familiar faces time and again.
Currently, you are on a five-year mission to scout a particular patch of dark space in the Antares system in the Orion Spur, some 550,000 light years away, where solar flares have been distorting long-distance signalling beacons, revealing the existence of a new and possibly habitable planet and a potential distress signal. The crew of the Barra has been tasked to repair the beacon, unscramble the signals, and investigate the viability of this new planet.
However, two years into your voyage, an unexpected situation arises…
