On the bridge of a starship.
The 24th century has brought new technologies and an unprecedented well-being to the humanity. Anyone can pursue their dreams in a safe environment. Space technology has advanced, and the galaxy opened by warp drive technology appears to be inhabited by many aliens.
Earth Alliance has sent a group of battlecruisers capable of independent exploration to the unknown reaches of space. United Space Administration (USA) has equiped these ships with the newest sensors, weapons and engines that can go as fastt as warp speed 9. Our story concentrates on the crew of the flagship USA Valiant.
An Admiral has ordered the ship near the Azimech system. However, Earth Allience, consisting of humans and other nearby lifeforms, is not alone in space. The imperialistic Union of Alzir tries to maintain a cold war by guarding its borders meticulously. They have military interest in Azimech, and because of this, have warned Earh Alliance on the matter.
When USA Valiant finally reaches its destination, a strange probe begins approaching, not responding to hails. There is an inhabited planet nearby, but those inhabitants have not yet mastered the art of space travel. Junior mate Volkov complains his headache and he is released from duty. Slight variations are detected in the warp field. There's something going on. Can the peaceful Earth Alliance and the crew of its flagship survive the situation according to protocol.
