The third largest colony by population, Antor II is still recovering from a series of earthquakes that decimated its infrastructure. Although proclaimed as the capital of the Coalition, Antor II actually has very little sway over the affairs of the other colonies, and the Coalition itself is more of a united voice for the colonies dealings with the larger Federation or other foreign powers than it is a true governing body for its members.
The USS Veritas arrives at Antor II in 2394 to assist with recovery efforts following a series of ground quakes. An explosion caused by terrorists in possession of a Starfleet tricobolt device destroys the Jade's Dragon Casino in New Macau, and a secondary explosion results in the numerous deaths of first responders. Veritas staff are then dispatched to assist in rescue and recovery as engineers work to assess the damage done to the weakened city dome. A third explosion collapses an entrance to a series of mines being scouted by Veritas crew, closing a possible evacuation location for civilians. The Kos'karii led by Klingon pirate Jilor claim responsibility for the attack.
Governor Blackhurst arrives on Veritas to deliver a speech to the people of Antor the Colonial Coalition regarding the events, cut before the speech could begin, Veritas is targeted by a coordinated internal and external attack. Internally, several of the injured colonists Veritas had been treating turned out to be plants, who had been in the process of sabotaging the ship. Externally, three small ships decloak and target the ship's torpedo magazine. Fortunately, the sabotage was detected in time to prevent catastrophic damage, and the attackers were subdued.
Rajel Tutoatasi gives a public address about his challenge for the position of Governor of Antor II in hopes to reaffirm the planet's position as capital of the Colonial Coalition, claiming that the political situation of the Shoals is not of benefit to the colony worlds. Representatives of both Meridian and Karakka were claimed to share Tutoastasi's view.
When reports of pirate attacks emerge along the Widowmaker Trail with no Starfleet vessel available to assist, Tutoatasi gives another public address condeming the lack of suitable Starfleet precense, and contacts the Klingon Empire for better security. Tutoatasi calls for the unification of the Shoals, and for the seven colonies to seek independence from the Federation.
Antor II possesses an oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere like most M class planets, but its atmosphere is thin, equivalent to Earth in some of its highest mountain ranges. Most humanoids who are not acclimatized to thin atmospheres will experience altitude sickness quickly without supplemental oxygen, and find physical activity difficult and intensely draining.
