Stone Trek for the USS Saturn

"Over the last few missions, we have been working to introduce a recurring enemy into the Saturn's story universe. For the current mission we decided to explore some of the early history of this recurring enemy, and actually took the whole crew back to mankind's first contact with them.

Destruction of Romulus

In 2009, the movie Star Trek established the destruction of Vulcan early in 2387. Sixth Fleet simulations in their majority decided to remain with the original Trek timeline and therefore with the destruction of Romulus in the wake of the Hobus supernova event.

A tentative date originally set in March 2387 may be moved to June instead once the Fleet's newly-created Committee for Creative Resources (regrouping the former Corps and Bureaus under one heading as of this month) c ...
