Astraios: A fledgling colony in the Gamma Quadrant set up by United Federation Starfleet after an accidental trip through an Iconian Gateway in 100215. Also the name of the planet and sector in which SS Astraios is located.
On Stardate 100215 Colonel Guy Maloy and his expeditionary team stepped out of an Iconian Gateway on an unknown planet soon to be identified as being deep inside the Gamma Quadrant. First contact was made with the Astraionians who eventually welcomed a Starfleet presence on their planet. UFS obliged and work began on a small colony, with Commander Marie Lawson given command of the sector on stardate 100520.
The humanoid population is primarily settled on the northern continent, where fresh water is easily available for crop growth and consumption. They progressed to warp capability a century ago. Despite this the Astraionians have kept mostly to themselves, with a few traders travel to the neighbouring system for supplies.
However, the political situation in the region is tense as the legacy of age-old hostilities between the indigenous Astraiosians and their neighbours from Treman continues to play a huge part in everyday life. The conflict continued until late 2378 when a fragile peace treaty was finally negotiated.
Starfleet’s role here as always, is primarily scientific as its archaeologists study reported remains of the Hur’q race and connections with the Rajans and Astraiosians. In addition scientists are interested in learning about the rare and volatile Takaar Gas that that is found in the large nebula that is present in this sector.
High hopes for the colony were soon to be deflated when hostilities between the Astraiosians and the Tremanites commenced once again. Starfleet’s non-interference policy meant retreat was their only option although they remained in a diplomatic role trying desperately to find a solution to the hostilities. A fragile peace treaty between the warring factions was finally negotiated with an agreement for Starfleet to return to Astraios.
On stardate 110111 newly appointed Sector Commander BenjaminBastian Hermans, with a small crew of officers, returned to the colony. Rebuilding is in progress. There is not only a great deal of work, but many problems. The planet seems to have a power, some even say a consciousness. Things move of their own accord, systems turn on and off on their own, items placed, disappear and power fluctuations are rampant. Poison Toocool took command 110321, her team continues to investigate these inexplicable malfunctions and mysterious changes.
Construction and Initial Assignment
SS Astraios consists of one main section and two wings, all constructed at Federation shipyards in Pinastri. The infrastructure for the station was transported via cargo vessel, escorted by Federation warships over the long weeks it took to travel from HQ in the Delta Quadrant to the Astraios System. Once arrived (stardate 110111), the lower main hull was placed in orbit and its shuttle bays and cargo transporters became the central point for work to commence on assembling the station. The station went fully operational on 110211 ((A Future's Past)).
Space Station Astraios is one of only three existing Helenic Class space stations that exist throughout the UFS. This huge and powerful station does not only house the Sector Headquarters along with Sector Command and Sector Chiefs stationed here, it is also home of thousands of officers, enlisted, businessmen and civilians. As homebase of the Task Force 4 the station is also the the headquarters of all UFS operations in the Gamma Quadrant. State of the art Science and Medical facilities aboard the station allow work on major scientific and medical projects as well as modern treatment of any injuries and diseases arising. The station is also homebase for a number of ships in the UFS task force.
