Summary: Past Featured Story

Part Two of Star Trek: Tesseract

In 2378, the crew of the USS Voyager delivered a devastating blow to the Borg Collective when they destroyed a key transwarp hub to the Alpha Quadrant, and the Borg unicomplex.  They hoped it would be the end of the Borg threat.  They were wrong.

Nearly eight years later, the crew of the USS Tesseract -- the first official Starfleet mission of exploration to the Delta Quadrant – has found a quadrant in ruins, torn apart by the Collective and a new, more terrifying kind of Borg -- the Borg Resistance.  They are free of the Collective, free of established protocols, without cohesion or unity, and operating under cloak.  Their new superweapon could put an end to warp society as the galaxy has known it – but it’s also the only thing standing between the Borg Collective and its ultimate goal of assimilating or destroying the entire United Federation of Planets.

Now, while the Federation and its tenuous allies prepare for a full-scale Borg invasion, the Tesseract crew -- alone in the Delta Quadrant -- must find a way to finish what Voyager started, and one young ex-Borg Starfleet officer must decide whether to embrace his destiny ... or boldly defy it.

Survival Play by kes7    Rated: K    Liked  Reviews (83
Summary:

Academy StoriesThere are three tests every cadet dreads: The Kobayashi Maru, the "face your fears" psych test, and the survival test.  The first one demoralizes you, the second one scares you, and the third one tries to kill you.  Make it through all three, and interstellar exploration seems tame in comparison.

When Maren O'Connor takes her survival test, she's determined to last until the bitter, icy end. Still high on her Daystrom win, she's confident that with a bit of engineering magic, she can survive just about anything -- even the frozen hellscape of Earth's North Pole.  

Little does she know, she's not just working against the elements -- she's working against a Starfleet Command-sanctioned conspiracy ...

... little does Starfleet Command know, they're not the only ones good at conspiring.

As the Federation returns to the Delta Quadrant eight years after the the USS Voyager destroyed the Borg unicomplex and a key transwarp hub, the crew of the USS Tesseract -- the fleet's largest and most advanced ship -- has no idea what they'll find there.

Just as they launch their seven-year mission, they stumble across a mystery that will soon unfold into an opportunity -- or a nightmare of epic proportions.
