The Setting

The Alpha Isles

From the perspective of someone looking over the galactic landscape, the upper left hand corner of the Alpha Quadrant is home to a myriad of species, cosmic phenomena, and potential. It is difficult to find a more diverse - or tenuous - sector of space. A twisted mess of politics and tempers under normal circumstances, the newly-expansionist Sheliak Corporate have upended the balance of power in the region, sending refugees and prior residents in the area scrambling for safety.

The Alpha Isles are sandwiched between The Breen Confederacy and the edge of The Ferengi Alliance, in the upper left sector of the Alpha Quadrant.


The politics and active groups in the region make up the principle danger of the Alpha Isles. Over a half dozen powers have borders on or claims in the Alpha Isles, with constantly shifting alliances and uncertain goals making conflict all but inevitable.

Major Powers

  • The United Federation of Planets ordered the USS Arrow into the Alpha Isles to bring peace and stability into the region. With the recent expansionist tactics of the Sheliak, the small Sabre class has its work cut out for it.
  • The Sheliak Corporate have begun an expansionist move into the region, without care for the lesser carbon-based lifeforms that are in the way. They view humanoids as lower life forms, and have no compunction about eradicating those that are not specifically protected under the terms of treaties, which are famously long, detailed, and intricate.
  • The powerful Breen Confederacy, secretive former enemies of the Federation, borders many of the major powers in the region.

Minor Powers:

  • The Ferengi Alliance shares a small border with the Isle's between Federation space and the borders of the Breen Confederacy. Until now, the Ferengi have left this section of space alone. But now that there's activity in the area, some Ferengi prospectors have moved in to try and secure some profit.
  • The Chalnoth, anarchic warriors of impressive prowess, pillage amongst themselves, weeding out weakness at every encounter. Rumours of in-fighting and pack-wars threaten to weaken the already anarchistic race.
  • The Caldonians, led by scholars and diplomats, devote themselves to refined, knowledgeable pursuits. They've been comparatively friendly and helpful to the Federation, and the USS Arrow in particular. However, their scientific aims and lack of Federation membership have led to some points of friction between the two powers.
