Plot Outline

The USS Dauntless, launched in 2401 was the testbed for the Federations Quantum Slipstream drive. With computing power finally reaching the level
required for the complex quantum field calculations, the Dauntless was build with the latest in Federations technology. Dauntless, together with
a select few other ships, was assigned to explore the Delta Quadrant. There, they met many wonders, species both friendly and hostile,
spacial phenomenon and re-discovered a few of the places the USS Voyager had been to.

In 2406, the Dauntless encountered the Terrans, the humans from the mirror universe, due to a slipstream accident. Data on this incident
however allowed the Terrans to develop a technology to send entire ships to our own universe, and they did.

The Terrans managed to tear a rift to our universe and they send a wave of ships trough, beforestarfleet forces in the Delta Quadrant
where able to seal the rift. The current status of the Terrans is unknown. The place where the rift was, a weak spot in subspace,
is now guarded by the USS Zac Johnson, the sister ship to the USS Dauntless. The Dauntless was heavily damaged and decommissioned after
thier last encounter with the Terrans.

February 7th, 2407. It has been six months since Dauntless’ decommission and its crew has settled into their new jobs. The USS Discovery-A, the ship assigned
to the Delta Quadrant Starbase, Starbase Ariel, is on a small recon mission in the Delta Quadrant. They are mapping a local nebula.
After a few days, they discover a ship, badly damaged, hiding in the nebula. They find the ship’s captain still alive, but all its crew dead.
The captain of the ship is treated in sickbay whilst the crew of the Discovery finds out the ship is a Mitosian patrol ship. The only contact
with the Mitosians was made by the Dauntless in 2402 and they havn't been heard from ever since...

Season 1 2407

In Season 1, Dauntless went agaisnt the Terran threat in the Delta quadrant. Starting with a search for the Mitosian ship,
the crew of the Dauntless discovered the Terrans had been there first and where ambushed. They managed to escape the ship
just before it was destroyed. They found one clue however, the location of the Mitosian homeworld. When they arrived there,
They found an empty planet, as if the Mitosians just up and left. With that trail leading to a dead end, the Dauntless
continued its mission of exploration, when they recieve a distress call from the USS Discovery. Arriving at the scene, they
find the Discovery heavily damaged, with most of its crew dead. The cause: a lost and damaged Borg Cube, now inhabited
by a small bunch of Kazons. The Kazons, who boarded the cube when it entered thier territory, where abducted by the borg
when the vessel went into transwarp again. With all borg on the cube dead however, they got trapped, not knowing how to
steer the ship and return home. Admiral Turton agrees to help them by merging the Dauntless' sliptream field with teh Cube's
deflector array, effectively towing the cube trough slipstream from within. All went well untill they entered former Borg space.
The cube's systems got reactivated, killing the Kazon and trying to assimilate Dauntless. The USS Zac Johnson managed
to catch up to the Dauntless in slipstream and destroy the cube, almost killing Admiral Turton the process, who was still
on board the cube trying to disable it.

While the Admiral was recovering, the Dauntless continus its mission of exploration under Captain Thompsons command.
A few weeks later, when docked at Starbase Ariel, they pick up a spacial anomaly on sensors and head out to check up on it.
Once the Dauntless arrives, the anomaly has faded, but they find a strange looking shuttlecraft with a starfleet energy
signature on board. They discover it to be the spare holo-matrix from the original USS Voyager's EMH. Apparantly, his
shuttlecraft (as mentioned in VOY "Living Witness") encountered a spacial anomaly and was thrown back in time.
The "backup-doctor" tells the Dauntless crew that in the future, he heard that a race called the Terrans invaded
the Delta Quadrant and wiped out the Federation. Armed with this knowledge, the Dauntless, together with the
Delta Science Initiative prepare for the worst.

To prevent future events, the DSI start planning a first strike. They have developed a Multidimensional Transporter,
the same device the mirror universe O'brien used to cross between univers, applied on a shipwide scale. Thanks to
technology recovered from the Mitosian homeworld, the device is integrated with the new Mark 3 slipstream core
and fitted on the Dauntless. The plan is to first test the device, before crossing over to the mirror universe.
However, during the test, something terrible goes wrong as the multidimentional transporter is activated
and sending Dauntless into the mirror universe when they drop out of slipstream. First everything seems normal,
but soon the crew start to realise what happened. During the confusing, Captain Thompson was injured and brought
to sickbay. However, Ambassador J'Tal Vento notices something odd about him. He is revealed as a
species 8472 intruder! When he tries to escape, the Dauntless crew is forced to kill him, and his
last words spoken are: "You don't know what is going on... admiral.....The threat cometh!"

Now, the Dauntless is lost in a alternate reality and most of her systems Crippled. There seems to be no hope left for the
Dauntless or her Crew. With the ISS Defiant about to begin firing on them, and the Admiral traumatised by the
fact that she has just murdered a member of species 8472 that took the form of her Closest Friend,
Is this the end for the Dauntless and her crew?
