Welcome to the 23rd century
The 23rd century, defined in the calendar of Earth as being from 2201 until 2300, was a period of expansion for the Federation, with humans and other founding species, such as Vulcans, at the forefront of exploration. The long-running conflict with the Klingons, begun in the 22nd century, was a major topic of this century's history, as was the rekindling of tensions with the Romulans. Of particular note are the voyages of the starship Enterprise and the careers of its long-serving command staff under James T. Kirk.
- The Klingon Empire relinquishes its claim to the Archanis sector. (DS9: "Broken Link")
- The tribble species is eradicated by the Klingons. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")
- Cloaking devices are installed aboard Klingon starships such as the IKS Klothos. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")
- An alternate approach to the transporter, the Elway Theorem, is first tested in this century. Instead of utilizing subspace as the medium for which matter and energy are transported from one location to another, this form of transporting uses dimensions of space. In the end, this approach is rejected as fatal for the subject and being not as nearly as accurate as the transporter. (TNG: "The High Ground")
Outpost 17- Space Station Hideki
Welcoming the newest outpost to join the United Federation of Planets, Hideki Station. This outpost will ensure easier means of crossing the vast distances between quadrants allowing races and people to safely relax and gather supplies for those long treks across the stars.
Formally civilian run until 2267 when Jonathon Munster, former Captain of the USS Vesuvius, was stationed as the UFP's chief liaison, and has since guaranteed that the same visitor satisfaction would be available to all guests who come here and to the owners of the shops which have drawn guests here for nearly a century.
Why worry yourself over the hostilities between the Klingons and the Romulans when you could have a drink at our wonderful Promenade Bar which looks out over our docking supports giving a beautiful view of orbiting ships. All races and culture are welcome under the standard non-hostilities clause of the United Federation of Planets Peace Treaty.
Come, meet interesting new people, new cultures, and possibly become a part of the ever growing history of Star Fleet at Outpost 17!
