Running The Gauntlet Campaign
The 35th Ferengi Rule of Acquisition is that peace is good for business. But peace seldom lasts forever.
Hostility, discord, pain and suffering. The Dominion War was a conflict that shattered the peace of the Alpha Quadrant and nearly brought several great empires to their knees. In the intervening years since the wars conclusion, all those involved have fought to bring peace and prosperity back to the quadrant and their once great organisations. It hasn’t been easy and there have been many skirmishes along the way, but an uneasy peace descended and has been upheld for over a decade.
The Cardassian Union is standing on its own again, the Klingon Empire has been restored to its former glories and the Romulan Star Empire is healing its wounds after the Hobus Incident but does so with the help of their Federation allies. Starfleet Command has re-organised and redistributed the twelve fleets of the Federation.
The winds of change are howling, the drums of war beat from the heart of the Klingon Empire following the sudden death of Chancellor Martok, the Romulan Empire is in disarray and a renewed terrorist threat operates on the Cardassian Border.
A new ship, a new area of operations and a new focus provides the crew of the Solaria with a welcome change of pace and an opportunity for some to forget the horrors of the past. But what fresh horrors await them as they "Run The Gauntlet" ?
Mission 1: Dramatis Personae
In Solaria's first mission, Captain Colby Drayton must lead a crew of replacements on a mission into the Northern Expanse of Federation space and deal with the lingering threat of the Rihansu Resistance. But, is everything as it seems?
Mission 2: Whispers In The Dark
For the crew of the Solaria, their second mission sees them come face to face with the apparent leaders of the Rihansu Resistance for the first time, deep into unknown territory far beyond the Northern Expanse. Whispers in the darkness promise to spell danger for the crew of the Starfleet ship...
Mission 3: Blood of the Empire
Peace and prosperity reigns along the Klingon-Federation border as the alliance goes from strength to strength. In celebration of the completion of Unity One, the first collaboratively constructed starbase between the two galactic powers, a host of diplomats and dignitaries arrive at the station to christen the new station. Among those present, Chancellor Martok himself. As the brain child behind the epic venture, the Chancellor has taken great interest in the project and vows to be at the opening ceremony.
But evil forces in the darkness threaten to destabilize everything the alliance has worked for...
Mission 4: Paradise Lost
Three days on from the assassination of Chancellor Martok aboard Unity One, the vessels of Task Force 11 begin to receive worrying reports of retaliatory strikes that could threaten the fragile peace. When sensor relay stations detect a massive build up of cloaked vessels near to the border, Starfleet's worst fears appear to be confirmed until the ships change course, destined for a surprise heading...
Captain Drayton and the Solaria lead the group into "The Gauntlet" to defend Federation interests and soon come up against some Klingon's who are baying for blood...
Mission 5: In Purgatory's Shadow
The Gauntlet, a corridor of space several light-years wide, has never been so aptly named. With the Klingon's firmly of the belief that the Romulans are responsible for the assassination of their Chancellor, the leaders of their most noble Houses launch strikes deep into Romulan space - the corridor has become hostile territory, despite it being Federation controlled space. Tactical Group 21 are tasked with protecting Federation ships and citizens within the corridor whilst the Diplomatic Corps works overtime to try and resolve the current situation.
But rumours of a massive Romulan counter-strike threaten the fragile alliance further. The Solaria must run the gauntlet and travel to the Zeta Pictoris system to try and get to the bottom of the developing situation, but what awaits them threatens to blow the Klingon investigation wide open...
Mission 6: By Inferno's Light
After receiving the devastating news that evidence points to Klingon conspirators in the assassination of Chancellor Martok, the leaders of the Empire's most noble Houses rally to appoint a new Chancellor. Starfleet Command remains hopeful that a new Chancellor will help to restore peace in the Quadrant, but peace seldom lasts forever, the winds of change are howling and the drums of war beat from the heart of the Klingon Empire.
A new leader is soon elected; Kureth, of the House of K'Mpar, is the chosen leader of the Empire. Starfleet hopes and dreams are shattered as Kureth recalls his ambassadors, orders all Klingon citizens out of Federation space and, perhaps most distressingly, once again dissolves the Khitomer Accords. With no choice but to fear the worst, Starfleet recalls the Solaria and Task Force 11 in order to defend Unity One, but is the order too late?
Rihansu Resistance Campaign
Mission 7: Captive Pursuit

Mission 8: Destiny
Mission 9: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges
With conflict on the horizon between the Romulan Republic, the Rihansu Resistance and the Federation, the crew of the Solaria throw caution to the wind and risk everything to prevent war, remembering the age old adage; "In times of war, the law falls silent."
