Astrofori One was a space station in the Menthar Corridor. Opened in 2392, Astrofori One was located in the Gamma Camelopardalis system, orbiting the main star. It was known by several other names depending upon which species you asked, but its name in Federation Standard was derived from an extinct Earth language translated roughly as "a place to talk among the stars." Astrofori One's mission was to bring together the major and minor powers in the Menthar Corridor under the banner of peaceful cooperation and collaboration. However, in 2395, after its resources and defenses were severely depleted following the withdrawal of Romulan and Breen support, the station was suddenly attacked and destroyed by the Tholian Assembly, which viewed the station as an illegal provocation and threat to its territory. Fortunately, the station's occupants were able to evacuate before its destruction thanks to the sacrifice of the USS Minerva and USS Stalwart, which allowed numerous other vessels to take thousands of fleeing residents to safety.
Astrofori One formerly contained diplomatic missions, military or civilian detachments, scientific teams, or other representatives from the governments and powers listed below. The list is not exhaustive, though it should be relatively accurate with respect to the major powers listed.
Diplomatic Missions Aboard DSX
|UNITED FEDERATION OF PLANETS|
An alliance of nearly 200 worlds, including Earth, Vulcan, Andoria, Tellar, and many others.
|ROMULAN STAR EMPIRE|
A recovering polity that has recently lost its homeworld but none of its fervor.
|BREEN CONFEDERACY |
A postwar amalgamation of federated worlds, all populated by a xenophobic species rarely seen outside of their encounter suits.
A powerful, expanding, parliamentary state.
A recovering, smaller alliance headlined by the species that once allied with the Dominion. The formerly independent Myr Luuk are a part of the Union.
Though not fully supportive of the station's mission, the aggressive Klingon Empire has sent a small diplomatic contingent to observe.
A harsh and isolationist species that begins to realize its part of the galaxy is becoming rather full. The diplomatic mission is filled by a minor political party with no real power on the homeworld.
A former power, backbone of a great alliance of species ten thousand years before, found lost in time and struggling to understand the machinations of a new millennium.
A friendly if isolated race, eager for allies and to trade technologies.
A combative, confrontational species, strongly interested in cyborg modification.
A minor power, formerly in a stalemated war with the Myr Luuk, looking to larger powers for guidance.
A poorly understood, nomadic species.
A newly discovered, friendly species interested in Astrofori One's work.
