Gamma Exploration Command

Over a decade after the most devastating attack on Federation soil since the Dominion War, Starfleet has changed. Gone are the carefree days of scientific exploration and diplomatic overtures. Instead, the Federation has sealed its borders and limits contact with those beyond them, its mighty fleet aggressively protects vast swathes of territory from threats both internal and external. With a focus on developing Starfleet into a stronger military presence, technological advancements have significantly enhanced the operational capacity of vessels that are long past their usual hull life.

But there is a longing inside every Starfleet officer; a yearning to be out among the stars and exploring the cosmos. For the first time since 2385, a petition to open a new front of exploration is considered by the Federation Council. Endorsed by Vice Admiral Noah Ramsey of Starfleet Command, and supported by Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy herself, the petition sought permission to divert a small task group of Starfleet vessels to the Gamma Quadrant for the first time since the armistice that was agreed at the end of the Dominion War. The task group would begin initial exploration efforts around the mouth of the wormhole in the Idran system of the quadrant, and would ensure the terms of the treaty were being respected. An area of the galaxy neglected after the war, the Federation Council granted the petition and authorised the creation Gamma Exploration Command, initially to operate out of Deep Space Nine until such a time as a location for a headquarters could be identified in the Gamma Quadrant itself.

Gamma Exploration Command was officially activated on stardate 76414.72 (June 1st, 2399) under the command of Vice Admiral Ramsey himself.

Hello there,

I would like to first introduce myself. My name is Christopher Kuna and I am the recently elected chairperson for the Gamma Exploration Command. A little about me:

- Started RPing live since 1998
- Proud Member of the former UIP.ORG
- Started in Star Trek themed MUSHs about 1999
- Introduced to early Nova in 2006
- Proud former member of Bravo Fleet
- Proud former member of BandOfBrothers
- Founder of New Destiny Fleet that ran for four years
- Founder of KunaSims.Org

My experience is quite diverse but very heavily Star Trek-related. As Chairperson of the GEC, I hope that through cooperation and through activity, we can create beautiful stories with the overlaying theme set before us. But I am in need of YOUR help. To create these stories that are just sitting here, we need beautiful people such as yourself to inspire others and enjoy the experience as not only players/writers but as a writing family of sorts.

If you are up to the challenge, we are waiting for you as we transition into this vast new era of storytelling. Find us at https://discord.gg/8dpc4zQRXw or click Discord in the upper right-hand portion of this page.

I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you as you join the GEC.

Cheers,
CK
