STO Corner: The Path To 2409-2384- And more Screens!

Path To 2409: 2384
Posted by Awen
Federation analysts say that a shakeup in the Romulan power structure has left the empire vulnerable to attack from within and without. Starfleet is dispatching additional ships to the border of the Neutral Zone and considers the Romulan situation one of the main threats to Federation safety and security.
After Tomalak’s defeat by Donatra and her fleet, Praetor Tal’aura removes him as proconsul, choosing Sela as her right hand and fleet commander. Sela, a human-Romulan hybrid with extensive experience in the military and intelligence fields, has been a part of several major Romulan operations, including a failed attempt to invade Vulcan and coordinating support for the House of Duras’ attempt to take over the Klingon High Council in 2367.
As a gift to Tomalak for his decades of loyal service to the Romulan Star Empire, Tal’aura allows him to “retire” to his rural estates on Romulus.
The Romulan defeat at Xantila has made open war with Empress Donatra unfeasible. Praetor Tal’aura reluctantly agrees to negotiate with the Imperial Romulan State to determine the new borders and the establishment of a neutral zone, but rejects the Federation’s offer to mediate the talks. Donatra says she would welcome the Federation’s input, but that she will defer to Tal’aura’s decision in this matter, and sends Admiral Taris to the Romulan capitol as her representative.
On Stardate 61602.00, Tal’aura is found dead in her private chambers. Tal Shiar investigators report that the praetor appears to have been attacked in her sleep.
The Romulan capitol erupts in a firestorm of rumors and accusations. Groups accused of responsibility for the assassination include a coalition of the noble houses, the Tal Shiar or agents working for Empress Donatra and the Imperial Romulan State.
Donatra denies having anything to do with the murder. “I face my enemies on the field of battle with honor,” the empress announces in an address to her citizens, “not with a knife in the dark.” She recalls Taris from Romulus and orders her to prepare to defend Imperial holdings.
At Tal’aura’s funeral in Ki Baratan, Sela publically blames the Remans and the Unification movement for the attack. “They claim to desire peace,” Sela says, “but ally with the murderers and usurpers who terrorized our planet and led us to the brink of destruction. The blood of one praetor was not enough for the Remans. Tal’aura was the victim of their thirst for destruction.”
But the upheaval in Romulan space is not the only potential war that Starfleet is monitoring. On Stardate 61829.83, the IKS Quv is attacked by a Gorn ship and 207 Klingons die in the battle. Representatives of King Xrathis of the Gorn claim that the commander of their warship was acting without orders, but refuse to surrender the surviving crew of the Quv to the Klingon Empire. In response, Chancellor Martok expels the Gorn’s diplomats from the empire and orders ships to the Klingons’ border with the Gorn Hegemony.
Representatives of the Federation Council are pleased to accept Bajor’s renewed application for Federation membership, and pledge to fast-track the planet’s admission. The increased traffic and commerce that could arrive with Federation membership prompts the Ferengi to open an expansive embassy and gift shop near Quark’s on Deep Space Nine.
Odo, acting as the Great Link’s ambassador to the solids, meets with his fellow changeling Laas on Koralis III. Odo invites Laas to return with him to the Gamma Quadrant. Laas refuses, choosing instead to continue to search for other changelings in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.
And Starfleet decides to transfer the Soong-type android B-4 to the custody of the Soong Foundation. The prototype android was deactivated after its discovery by the Enterprise-E in 2379, but foundation representatives say they hope to restore his full positronic functioning.

Fan Film Friday: Spotlight On Dark Armada, Victory

Here's this week's fan films picks

1. Star Trek: Dark Armada, a Netherlands based fan film Is going to release their new 10 minute shorts early this year. I had the opportunity to interview the executive producer, Robin Hiert. Enjoy!

So, how did you come up with Dark Armada?
I started writing a short story titled Dark Armada, that I published on the internet. It was just a story until I saw a fan series called Hidden Frontier. There wasn’t anything like that going on here in the Netherlands so I started to ask around, trying to find the people and the means to make a series such as Hidden Frontier. When we started to make a fan series we kept the name and pieces of that storyline. I can’t really explain the what the title means as I think that would spoil some episodes. You’ll just have to watch the show!

Why did you choose the Nova class, and what is your ship name?
I think the Nova class is a very nice looking ship, it was seen in the episode “Equinox” from Star Trek Voyager. We named our ship the Batavia, after a 17th century Dutch ship travelling to the city Batavia. Unfortunately this ship never reached her destination, let’s hope the new one has a bit more luck, huh.

The Nova class was originally a scout ship, but the Batavia has been refitted in 2382 and she is now part of a taskforce assigned to a region called the Dark Hinterlands.

So, you write your scripts. What is your target when writing them ( style, ETC)?
I’m responsible for everything related to the pre production of the episodes. That is everything you do before you start filming.

Before I write a script I first think about what I want to give to the audience. A message like that can be as simple as “Be nice to your parents”, but of course you try to think of something currently happening somewhere in the world.

When I have that message I start working on a story around it, using the characters and environment of the show. Then I usually ask someone else to give it a read, to see if it makes sense. And then of course it’s time to work out all the details in a script.

What is the main enemy?Well, you’ll just have to wait and find out in our upcoming episodes.
When is it being released?
We’re currently working on the post production of a short episode. I don’t do that myself, we have some wonderful people gluing everything together and I can tell you it’s a lot of work! This short titled “Worst Nightmare” will be released somewhere around February/March, we don’t have an exact date yet. Keep an eye on our website for the latest updates!

We’re also working on the pre production for another 2 shorts, which will be a two-parter titled “Choices”.

Who is your cast?
Go to our website and look for “cast” in the menu, there you will find the cast including their

I’ve seen your test episode, could you tell us the changes that will happen between that one and the new episode? And maybe give us a link?
All I can say is that the upcoming episode will be much better in quality than the test episode. That’s exactly why we did a test episode, to see what could be improved. It can be watched in our download section on the website.

Thank you For your time! Make sure to visit for the latest on Star Trek: Dark Armada. And make sure to watch their ten minute short coming in February/March!

Thanks To Robin Hiert!
