Gold Fleet Places of Interest


Galactic directions

Coreward - towards the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. "North" on most conventional Federation star charts.

Rimward - towards the outer edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. "South" on most conventional Federation star charts.

Spinward - towards the direction of spin for of the Milky Way Galaxy. "West" on most conventional Federation star charts.

Trailing - opposite the direction of spin for the Milky Way Galaxy. "East" on most conventional Federation star charts.


A, B, C

Alderson Disk

An artificial megastructure located at the terminus of one of the Goliath wormholes. First discovered by USS NOVA in 2417.


Argaya II

Formed by exiles from Lyshan A-IV, the world has a long history of hostility with the Lyshan system.

Beta Iotia V

The home of DS13, barely 20 light-years from the border of the Gorn Hegemony.

D, E, F

Daru Zhaiur Sector

This region is five days away from PGS at standard warp.

Although effectively surrounded by Federation members, Daru Zhaiur Sector contains no Federation worlds, colonies or research stations. No Federation ship has been permitted to penetrate beyond the sector's outer star systems. In consequence, there are many mysteries concerning this region of space.

The sector is dominated by the Oessa, the only local species to develop the technology necessary for interstellar travel. The Oessa control trade and religion in the sector, but do not have an empire in the traditional sense. Any planetary population that accepted the Oessan faith was allowed to control its internal affairs without significant interference.

In 2412, the Oessa suddenly withdrew from their border worlds and did something unprecedented, by requesting Federation assistance. This resulted in the USS Indefatigable traveling to Illeshon, one of the border worlds the Oessa had recently abandoned. Some light was shed on the mysteries surrounding this species; it seemed that the Oessa’s ships were all powered by the lifeforce or will of the deity they worshipped, and that possibly this deity was no longer as powerful as it had once been.

After the Indefatigable's mission, the Oessa returned to their traditional isolationism.


David and Goliath Nebulas

David is the smaller of the twin nebulae to the "south-west" of DS13. Goliath is the larger nebuia and center of a wormhole nexus.


Deep Space 12

A joint venture between the Romulan Star Empire and the United Federation of Planets, this base is building a bridge of understanding between the naval officers of both powers. The base is administered, from the Star Fleet side, by Blue Fleet. It is located in the Romulan Neutral Zone near the Herod wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant. The current commander is Romulan.

Deep Space 13

The second station to bear this designation is a REDOUBT-class starbase. Like its predecessor, it is the center of Krima Expeditionary Force operations.

G, H, I

Gideon Cluster, The

Viewed from the perspective of Earth, these stars form a narrow isosceles triangle, with the star Asurras (aka Point Gideon) at the point of the triangle.

The Cluster is nominally in Blue Fleet territory, though it is actually on the border of Blue Fleet and Gold Fleet. It is Patrolled by the Blue-Gold Joint Task Force.

J, K, L

Lyshan A-IV

The fourth planet of the primary star of a trinary system. Locally, it is known as Klomak. It was colonized by Vulcan immigrants before the rise of Surak's philosophy of non-violent logic. It has a history of hostilities with Argaya II.

M, N, O

Narrows, The

Located just coreward and trailing of the Daru Zhaiur Sector, it is actually one of many "triangles" referred to in space terms. An area of unclaimed space between the Gorn Hegemony, Romulan Star Empire, and United Federation of Planets. Its Federation border is patrolled by Task Force Orestes.


Neutral Zone Outpost 1

The most trailing of the small monitoring outposts along the neutral zone is the only one of these bases to fall under Gold Fleet administration. It falls within the patrol zone of the Blue-Gold Joint Task Force.

Orestes Station

Appriximately 50 light-years south of DS13, this base is the center of the Orestes Sector. At present it is primarily a planetary station with limited orbital facilities. It is located on the one habitable planet of the Orestes system, Orestes Prime. This station was destroyed over a year ago by a joint Woren/Romulan effort, but it has since been reconstructed and re-opened as a military outpost.

To effectively cut off access to this wormhole, Admiral Brooks has ordered a warning buoy be placed of the Sag DEG side of the wormhole and the Beta Quadrant terminus surrounded by a large minefield.

P, Q, R

Point Gideon Station

PGS is in geosynchronous orbit around Rijenna (aka Asurras III), located near the conjunction of Romulan, Federation, and Gorn space.

Construction on this starbase began in 2411. Although only half-completed, it was operating as Blue Six headquarters by the beginning of the following year. For most of 2412, the lower decks were noticeably incomplete.

The station was completed in April 2413.


Rijenna

Rijenna is a world of approximately Earth's size, with an atmosphere easily breathable by humans. It is a very green world: green seas, and landmasses that, for the most part, are covered in forests and jungle.

Once, there had been a civilization there. However, the Rijennans (orange-skinned, sharp-featured humanoids) had long ago become extinct, for reasons that remain a mystery.

From 2408 to early 2413, only survey teams and archaeologists were permitted to visit Rijenna.

In May 2413, the first colony was set up, on the island of Murri.

In 2414, the planet was opened up to large-scale colonization. The colonists, of course, almost invariably passed through Point Gideon Station.

S, T, U

Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy

First reached by a wormhole in the Goliath Nebula, it is also connected to the Milky Way by a wormhole near Orestes Prime.


Starbase 11

The most trailing of the Starbases that serve the ships patrolling the Romulan-Federation Border, this base is home to the Blue-Gold Joint Task Force.


Starbase Foothold (Deep Space Station 301)

The base was established in 2417 in response to a Romulan/Woren collaboration that threatens Beta Quadrant stability. This is technically in Woren claimed space. Admiral Brooks and Admiral Veld -- and the rest of the Federation, for that matter -- don't seem to care. They have claimed the unoccupied system into which the stable wormhole opens. Since the Woren cannot create a 50k km wormhole since losing the destruction of their large wormhole generating station by the Lehrrens, they can't get to the Milky Way without going through Starbase Foothold -- something that they have yet to attempt. DS301 itself is a Star Core build facility, much like the original DS13. But it is not alone. There is a network of static defense fortresses that Admiral Brooks insisted accompany the base through the wormhole as an added deterrent.


Tybiiran Complex

The Tybiiran Complex is the general name given to the asteroid field and its surrounding area. This asteroid field is located right along the borders of the Gorn Hegemony approximately 18 light years due 'east' of Deep Space 13. As a result of its location, its ownership has been disputed from time to time, most recently in 2412, resulting in what has colloquially become known as "The Battle of the Belt," or The Tybiiran Campaign.

The field itself is a truly huge and unique conglomerate of protoplanets and micrometeors product of the collision of two nebular clusters, most asteroids condensed due to the gravitational waves created by the stellar phenomenon. Both Cluster NFC-101C and the Voira Tundra are byproducts of that collision, like the Tybiiran Complex. It is some six light years wide, three lightyears corewards and almost 1 light year in height, although most bodies are concentrated in a relatively dense band of a few light hours. Some regions show unusual weather, probably due to the very special composition of some of those rocks.



V, W, X

Voira Tundra

The Voira Tundra is essentially a celestial "no-man's land," containing almost no stellar phenomena whatsoever. It is, essentially, a barren wasteland in the middle of the starfield. It is located along the border with the Gorn Hegemony.
