- Main Article: Gorn Hegemony
On July 2, 2388, the Gorn Hegemony launched a surprise invasion of the Cestus and Canterra systems. Simultaneously, unknown assailants hit Federation facilities throughout the sector. At Xavier Fleet Yards, in an attack likened to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II, they caught Task Force 86 and the Fifth Fleet unaware, significantly damaging their tactical capabilities and command structure before a response could be mounted. In disarray, the Gorn dug in and secured their new holdings before a counter-assault was possible. In the aftermath, Starfleet organized a joint incident command under Task Force 93 that came to include elements of the Third, Fourth and Fifth Fleets, the 93rd Marine Expeditionary Unit, the Grey Mist intelligence outfit, and others.
Romulan Star Empire
In the events following the Hobus Supernova that eradicated Romulus and Remus, Ambassador Robert Chadwick, representing the United Federation of Planets, travelled to Nelvana in an attempt to stave off all-out war. After a week of negotiations, he signed the Treaty of Nelvana with his Romulan counterpart, Admiral P'alas. In the treaty, Starfleet acknowledged the Empire’s sovereign right to dictate border transit rights, closing off Federation access to the Romulan Empire and re-affirming the 3 LY-wide Neutral Zone. However, given that the Hobus Incident had destabilized the portal to the Raeyan Sector, the Romulan Empire also made a concession. They ceded a 5 LY-wide region of space along the Klingon border over to the Federation indefinitely, creating the Raeyan Transit Corridor. This corridor allowed the Federation to still reach the Raeyan Sector, although it came at the cost of having to administer a buffer between the Romulan and Klingon empires. Logistically, as several Romulan worlds lay within this region, the Empire was granted a five-year easement to relocate its colonies within the region.
Raeyan Transit Corridor & Raeya Sector
Between the two remote regions, it struggled with the Raeyan Transit Corridor, where Romulan colonists being forced to relocate as part of the Treaty of Nelvana had become resistant, and with the Triangle and Klingon borderlands, where pirates and rogue factions tested the Federation's resolve. The wide range of operations eventually prompted the Task Force to relocate its headquarters to Providence Fleet Yards. At the other side of the RTC, you will find the Raeya Sector Block, filled with various independent planets and colonies, such as Raeya III, Faltan III, Union III and more. In the west the Romulan Star Empire, in the south the Klingon Empire, in the west the Krazzle Republic and the Trigati Republic and in the north the C'hakilian Empire with the dangerous Meridian Cloud.
The Klingon Empire clashed into conflict with their own people making it easier for the rogue houses to move forward and finally attack starbase Sut HabmoHwI' mupwI' in the Narendra System that was under control of the great House of Darg. The new proclaimed House of Si'tac that serves the Sovereignty of Kahless, there is still little to know about this new force. The Federation Council, however, wishes to monitor the situation closely and push them back into their borders after they attacked and kidnapped crew and captains of the Federation. Negotiations are still being ignored, but the Diplomatic Corps has still hope.

Task Force History
- Main Article: Task Force 93 Timeline
For roughly half a year, Task Force 93 operated within Romulan territory at the behest of the new provisional government, charged with providing aid to the Romulan people and supporting the Romulan Star Navy. This opportunity offered Starfleet an inside look at the Romulan Empire and the prospect of building a greater bridge of friendship with the Empire.
Task Force 93 rushed to pull its assets out of Imperial territories, staging them along the Neutral Zone as rhetoric from the Empire grew increasingly hostile. Ambassador Robert Chadwick, representing the United Federation of Planets, travelled to Nelvana in an attempt to stave off all-out war. After a week of negotiations, he signed the Treaty of Nelvana with his Romulan counterpart, Admiral P'alas.
In the Gavarian sector, it conducted several operations to stave off all out war between the Cardassians and the Romulans, and in the Raeyan sector, it struggled with a number of territorial disputes. Between the two remote regions, it struggled with the Raeyan Transit Corridor, where Romulan colonists being forced to relocate as part of the Treaty of Nelvana had become resistant, and with the Triangle and Klingon borderlands, where pirates and rogue factions tested the Federation's resolve.
The Gorn Hegemony launched a surprise invasion of the Cestus and Canterra systems. Simultaneously, unknown assailants hit Federation facilities throughout the sector. At Xavier Fleet Yards, in an attack likened to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II, they caught Task Force 86 and the Fifth Fleet unaware, significantly damaging their tactical capabilities and command structure before a response could be mounted.
While the Klingon Empire faced their own problems that put heavy tension on the Federation-Klingon borders and the Khitomer Accords. The Empire collapse under its own weight and civil war rose from it. The Sovereignty of Kahless rose up to power and took large amount of control North-East of the Empire reign of control. The Federation is on heavy alert as 5 vessels have been attacked and some of its personal captured as war prizes.
