STAR TREK and related marks and logos are trademarks of CBS Studios Inc. All Rights Reserved.   Starbase 64 Narendra Station   The United Federation of Planets  is seeking to expand its exploration efforts beyond current territorial boundaries into regions which until now have only been mapped by automated survey probes. Very little is known about the area of the galaxy beyond the far borders of space claimed by the Klingon and Romulan Empires. Starfleet has made only a handful of visits to this largely uncharted sector, christened by some nameless stellar cartographer “ the Shackleton Expanse ” in honor of the famed twentieth-century Earth explorer, Ernest Shackleton. Though Starfleet has established a token presence in the area with starbases to serve as outposts along this unfamiliar frontier, Narendra Station  has been designated as the waypoint for this increased exploration initiative. Formally designated Starbase 364 , Narendra Station has been operational since 2353. Named in tribute to the Klingon colonists who were massacred during a Romulan sneak attack against the outpost on Narendra III  in 2344, the starbase also serves as a reminder of the pivotal shift in Klingon-Federation relations which occurred in the aftermath of the assault. During the attack, the Starfleet vessel U.S.S. Enterprise  NCC-1701-C  commanded by Captain Rachel Garrett answered the colony’s distress call, managing to repel the attacking Romulan ships and saving the outpost from total annihilation. The action came at the cost of the Enterprise -C and its crew, a gesture of bravery and sacrifice which was not lost on the Klingon Empire’s High Council. Out of tragedy was forged a new era of Federation-Empire alliance. For now, both Federation and Klingon officials have worked to broaden and fortify this alliance, expanding beyond mere military alliances to other common interests such as territorial expansion as well as locating planets rich in needed resources. Though the Klingons have largely done away with the practice of subjugating other worlds and civilizations to imperial interests, this does not mean the High Council and Federation leadership always see eye to eye. Narendra Station serves as one more method of enhancing the existing Federation-Empire partnership. Both Starfleet and Klingon personnel live and work here, pursuing missions and goals relevant to their individual government as well as joint tasks that serve to further support continuing collaborative efforts. Given its location and relative isolation from more populated areas of Federation space, the station’s command staff   is granted a broad authority to dispatch the vessels in its charge on missions of exploration as well as diplomacy. The starbase also serves as a first line of defense against threats to Federation and Klingon security, whether introduced by a known adversary such as the Romulans, or anyone or anything previously unidentified that might emerge from the unexplored depths of the Shackleton Expanse or points beyond.    ™ & ©2016 CBS Studios Inc.

All Rights Reserved.   The Shackleton Expanse Located well away from the heart of Federation space and beyond the far borders of both the Klingon and Romulan Empires, the Shackleton Expanse  is an area shrouded in mystery and even legend. It is largely uncharted, save for the efforts of automated survey probes. Many of those drones have recorded onboard system issues when traversing the region, srcinally explained by various stellar phenomena that emit peculiar forms of electromagnetic and gravimetric distortions that have been deemed hazardous to navigation. For this reason in particular, Starfleet’s efforts to push into the area have been limited, though many stories have been passed around thanks to decades of independent merchants and prospectors skirting the region. However, recent months have seen increases in the level of interference, and Narendra Station’s science officer has requested additional resources be devoted toward enabling further study of the Expanse. To that end, experimental improvements in sensors and deflector shield technology have been installed aboard three of the vessels assigned to the starbase: U.S.S. Venture    –  NCC-71854  –   Galaxy   Class U.S.S. Bellerophon    –  NCC-74705  –   Intrepid   Class U.S.S. Thunderchild     –  NCC-63549  –    Akira  Class
