  1. SAN FRANCISCO, EARTH – Earlier today, Starfleet Security issued a retraction of their previous alert, bringing the Sol system’s defence status officially back to ‘green.’ (Editor’s note Green = ~ 560–520 nm ~ 540–580 THz). Apologizing for the public disruption caused by the false alarm, Commodore Raoul Oterboro was quick to spin the situation positively. “Our alert was sent after we received credible holo footage of numerous individuals on the Starfleet Academy campus seemingly changing shape, size and appearance at will. By the time we realized the Academy’s Halloween Gala had been reschedu
  2. SAN FRANCISCO, EARTH – Every year, bright-faced and happy-go-lucky Cadets enter Starfleet with nothing but a dream and a wish in their hearts, eager for learning and to one day step aboard a Starship as a fresh-faced Ensign, and perhaps one day… a Captain. And, like clockwork, every year rumours arise about The Haunting. “Look,” said Cadet Arisa, a second-year medical cadet. “I’m not saying I believe in spirits or whatever, but sometimes at night… Sometimes, like, you hear things.” Cadet Linn, a third-year Bolian science cadet, offered her own explanation for these strange occurrences. “It’

  4. SOL III – The Federated States of Micronesia claimed their third successive Soccer World Cup victory this weekend, smashing records for historical finals with a flourishing spectacle. On a night to remember in Montevideo, two powerhouses of Association Football faced each other in what will surely go down as one of the most dramatic World Cup finals in history. In the sweltering South American heat, hosts Uruguay took on everyone’s pre-tournament pick to lift the trophy – the Federated States of Micronesia. Though, the FSM did not have it all their own way. Uruguay took the lead early in th
  5. FNS HQ, MARS — Captain Frederick Thompson, of the civilian transport vessel SS Torquay, has discovered the USS Ahwahnee (NCC-2048) a Constitution-class vessel, floating near the Klingon Federation border. Reported missing, believed destroyed, now due to be recovered. Initial investigations point to the ship encountering an as yet unknown subspace anomaly that killed all hands on board. Other than the tragic loss of life, the Ahwahnee is in near perfect condition and is due to be towed to Earth. “The vessel is in superb condition, considering it’s been floating in space for years,” commented
  6. ALPHA QUADRANT — A missing transfer scow carrying highly valuable Trellium-D has thrown local sector markets and larger trading into flux. The independent haulier, The Fair Winds, was due in port nearly a week ago. Trellium-D, a key component in the insulation of starships, is a challenging mineral to process and rare to find in the raw ore state. As word of the missing Trellium reached miners, ship-builders, unions, mineral dealers, and various other markets playing tradesfolk throughout the Quadrant, Galactic Markets reacted in kind. Prices for still available Trellium-D, and the market pr
  7. ANDORIA — A large avalanche in the northern reaches of the Andorian Highlands has trapped a team of four scientists, all now missing in the snowdrift. Search and Rescue party launches. The team, led by Dr. Talak of the Andoria Imperial Academy, a renown geophysicist, was surprised by an immense avalanche that at its peak brought forth winds of little over 110 km/h. The four men, of which two Andorians, a Tellarite, and a Human remain buried beneath the sizeable amount of snow that came from the avalanche. Investigation is ongoing, with the aid of a Starfleet search team. The captain of the

Consistent with other accounts, Chief Engineer Agarton explained that the warp nacelles had suffered extensive damage from the encounter with the Orions. Under siege from boarders, who
  10. BAJOR — As Bajor enters national mourning for Heerma Eza, the FNS celebrates the life of the Occupation refugee with a look back at one of the most venerated holonovels of our time, Symbols of the Ships. The Dominion War of 2375 left an unmistakable scar on the people of Bajor, none less so on Bajoran conflict veteran Heerma Eze. Surviving both her parents and children, Eze has never forgotten the deep grooves that came with the occupation, and funnelled those energies into a harrowing holonovel reverenced in literary circles. While there are few unaware of the holonovels existence — Academ
  11. CICIGAR, MARAVEL — After his reign of 54 years ended two weeks ago, Emperor Yongkiyaha’s death has inspired an outpouring of grief and tributes for the late departed Emperor on Maravel itself and across the Federation as people remember a man famous for his conspicuous dedication to public service and his inscrutable personality. Standing on her street corner, Seta Tsuru, who just celebrated her 97th birthday, making her the same age as the Emperor, held a straight-backed, but reverent pose as she waited for the funeral procession to pass, holding her black umbrella aloft only to spare her gr
  12. FNS reporter Dresdon P. Mitchell explores the modern issues concerning rituals and rites of Vulcans. In a previous special report, I discussed how the modern youth of Vulcan are focusing more on their career advances, rather than partaking in their seven-year mating ritual, pon farr and how they’re combating the neurochemical imbalances associated with the ritual. However, is it just medicine that’s allowing them to fight these urges? Because of the environment and temperature slowly falling after the atomic war, a Vulcan meteorologist has been studying with a Human pharmacist in d

  15. SKRAL RIVER, QO’NOS — Celebrated for their bloodwine and chech’tluth, a new beverage is taking the Klingon market by storm and filtering into Federation bars. Blended and single malt whiskeys derived at the craft distillery in Skral River are highly sought already. Consumers are cautioned, however, that like most Klingon brewed beverages, qul bIQ, as it has been dubbed by the distillers, is much stronger that whiskey distilled on Earth and elsewhere because of the more hardy Klingon grains and hops that grow in the Skral River Valley on the Klingon homeworld, which gives it a deeper hue than
  16. TAU CETI PRIME — Federation scientists are keen to begin their explorations of a newly discovered geological and anthropological hotspot beneath the expansive glacier ice caps of Tai Centi Prime n collaboration with the Kaferians. Beneath the thousands of glaciers covering the landscape of the planet’s mountain regions lies a geological and anthropological mystery Federation scientists have pondered for decades, and Kaferians for as long as their written records extend into history. The Kaferians – an insectoid species and Federation member for many years inhabiting the sister planet Tau Ceti
  17. ANDOR — A Horta citizen of the United Federation of Planets is suing the Andorian government after being refused clearance to make planetfall on the Andorian surface. Hurrurrn, the plaintiff in question, contends that on Stardate 239602.01, while undertaking a tour of the Federation as part of a vacation, he attempted to transport to Andor for a guided tour. The tour itself, and all relevant permissions, received authorisation well in advance, but during final clearance, Andorian Municipal Transporter Control ordered the transport halted, preventing Hurrurrn from beaming down to the moon. “N

  20. KESPRYTT III — Following an inability to reach a cohesive stance regarding planetary unity, the mutually hostile nation-states on Kesprytt III have been denied entrance into the Federation for the second time. A month of tough negotiation yielded little progress, and a breakdown in talks accompanied by threats of military action from the Kes, the larger nation-state, towards the Prytt. “If civil war is our future, then we will fight the Prytt until none of them remains. We have control of seventy-five per cent of the planet,” Lauric, a Kes government official said when questioned about th
  21. AAVARO WILDS, STARBASE 821 — Recent sudden transfers to and from the Federation flagship of the Aavaro Wilds has Starfleet officials on edge this week as drifting wreckage found.

The USS Arrow, once assi
  22. BERSALLIS III – The Bersallis III outpost has reported that the most recent firestorm activity is the strongest ever recorded since the outpost was founded.

  24. ANDORIA – Andorian Aces and Kindred of Kahless meet on the ice in an epic battle for the title of Champion in first Galactic Ice Hockey tournament held on Andoria. Ice Hockey, a popular sport from Earth, has taken off amongst the many races of the federation, and several of her neighbours too. As is stated in the name, this particular sport is played on a field of ice. It should come as no surprise then, that the Andorians, who inhabit the frozen moon Andoria, would naturally gravitate toward this sport. Ice Hockey has always had a reputation as an aggressive sport, and unsurprisingly this
  25. DIALRAN SYSTEM, AAVARO WILDS — Sources inside Lightside Station Security say the recent discovery of a pair of Nivean Rings, and the debris field that surrounds their space, have led to a brand new black market to emerge. Mere weeks after the contact of Federation starship USS Eagle (NCC-74659) and the Nivean Rings, a rapidly booming junk and antiquities racket has sprouted in the aftermath. Using a seemingly vast network of independently contracted trawlers and salvage operations, supported by a large word-of-mouth marketing system, dealers have started to flood into the Lightside Station ma
