StarBase 118, Trinity Sector (Stardate 238810.21) – Delegates from the Romulan and Klingon Empires are arriving aboard Starbase 118 for negotiations regarding a planet in the neutral zone discovered to be rich in Pergium. Both sides are vying for control of the planet and the subsequent mining operations; a situation that could escalate into an all out war.
Pergium is a radioactive element that is often used in power generation. It is also one of the rarer of such elements in existence. Considered a scarce commodity, the discovery has caused heightened tensions along the border. As the Romulans are still working on rebuilding their Empire, officials are increasingly concerned by the growing desperation that may lead to violent hostilities that would not only put the world and the native people there in danger, but would inevitably put Starbase 118 directly in middle of a war zone.
In an attempt to keep the peace, the USS Victory has been dispatched to serve as a buffer between representative ships from both sides, which are said to be already in orbit of the planet in question.
Thracia 2 is the second planet in the Thracia system, which consists of three planets and an asteroid belt. Thracia 2 is the only planet in the system capable of sustaining life, but due to the fact that they are still a primitive civilization, nothing has drawn any visitors to the planet before.
The border Nequencia colony can be found within the closest system to Thracia 2, however, no attempts to visit the planet have been made to date.
