The Avalon Sector has long been considered as insignificant even though it is on the border with the Romulan Star Empire. The near by presence of the Klingon Empire ensured that any attention that might have been directed toward it was instead directed towards the more vital and strategically important Trinity Sector and Serellan Sector.
In 2270 the USS Enterprise under the command of Captain James T. Kirk visited this sector just prior to the shifting of the Neutral Zone as negotiated by the Federation with the Romulan governments. They visited the Arachne system which was still on the Federation side of the border and beamed 1st officer Spock along with Cmdr. Katalya Tremain down to Arachne IV to determine if the native species of ant like creatures was sentient. They determined that they were not just prior to the shifting of the neutral zone and the Arachne system ended up on the Romulan side of the neutral zone.
Over the nest 50 years there were sporadic patrols by various Starfleet ships, assigned to basically show the flag and maintain some semblance of official presence. It was only after the discovery of the Saurian Empire in 2319 by the USS Midway that focus was shifted back towards this area. Over the next 20 years it became obvious that the Romulans were also becoming more active in this region. As a result the Federation authorized the construction of Deep Space 285.
It was completed in 2336 and a single vessel the USS Serbia was assigned to this region of space on a semi-permanent basis. Even then this sector seemed to continue to be something of a backwater, being mostly ignored by both the Federation and the Romulan Empire. It was not until the after the destruction of Genura in 2385, that the Federation began to devote more diplomatic and scientific resources to the region. This included the permanent assignment of the USS Taiwan. They were nearly all recalled after the destruction of Romulus and Remus in 2387, and what little was left was further reduced after other interstellar crises like the Vaadwaur Invasion of 2387 and the Klingon Invasion of 2389.
After the Gurab Crisis in 2389, Starfleet withdrew the last of its resources from this sector. The DS285 station became a backwater assignment, no longer the seat of a Sector Command or a branch of the admiralty. No Starfleet ships were assigned to the region until late 2391, when the USS Constitution-B returned to the region. The assignment of a Galaxy-Class starship is perhaps a sign of Starfleet's renewed commitment to the region as a new frontier to be explored, or perhaps, something else entirely. In early 2392, the USS Constitution B was reassigned to the Talos Sector and the USS Doyle-A, a newer Luna class ship was assigned to explore the sector.
Currently the Avalon Sector sits on the border of what could be considered a new and unexplored frontier. This occurred following the destruction of the Romulan home system and resulted in the creation of the new Romulan Republic. Added to this was the creation of numerous other splinter factions and groups with in what had been the Romulan Star Empire. Also the Saurian Empire has become more active, taking on a more aggressive expansionist attitude. As a result Starfleet Command and the Federation are very interested in keeping tabs on all new developments with in this region.

Onash is about 40% land, 60% water, with most of the land mass grouped into three continents -- two in the southern hemisphere and one in the northern. With a 30% axis, seasons tend to be more severe than Earth norm.
Sociologically speaking, Onash has had planetary government for a little less than a century, making the planetary government relatively unstable. Only the executive power is in the hands of the planet-wide government, headed by Governor Tarken.
Legislative and other powers still are in the hands of the continental governments, although there is a planetary senate with veto power over the Governor, as well as power to depose the ruling planetary Governor.
In 2378, a recent trend was increased paranoia about alien species, countering what used to be a people fairly open to the possibility of First Contact
As of 2378, Onash has been engaged in solid-fuel and nuclear powered space exploration for a couple of centuries now, with three semi-permanent space stations currently in orbit around the planet. In the year 2378, the crew of the USS Constituion-B was sent to observe a warp flight
