Vanguard: Precipice (Star Trek Seekers)
The series began in with Harbinger and ended in with Storming Heaven. Star Trek: Vanguard provides a greatly expanded look at the geopolitical and cultural context to the events of the Star Trek: The Original Series. Set on a starbase in the Taurus Reach , a region outside Federation space and tucked between Klingon and Tholian space, the series, in setting itself upon a centralized space station with ambassadorial, legal, and colonizing purposes, purposefully avoids traditional depictions of Starfleet and the Federation to examine the bigger picture of the events of the TOS era.
The series follows the life of Vanguard , under command of a flag officer, Commodore Diego Reyes. The setting of Vanguard during the events of The Original Series and between Klingon and Tholian space also ensures that the series concentrates on examining these two states during the s.
The earlier careers of important figures such as Gorkon and Chang are examined, the vying statues of "ridged" and "smooth"-headed Klingons, and the events leading to and surrounding the brief Federation-Klingon War of ended by the Organian Peace Treaty. The Tholians are depicted in great detail, proving a history to the events of TOS episode : " The Tholian Web ", which is placed within the context of Vanguard' s operations.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The emergence of the Romulan Star Empire from its century of isolation is explored, as well as how the Klingon-Romulan alliance of the s occurred. As the hub of a massive colonization effort, Vanguard Station is populated by a number of civilian inhabitants and ships. One person is a colorful trader and smuggler, Cervantes Quinn , in the same vein of Cyrano Jones. At the beginning of the series, he is beholden to another civilian resident of the station, the Orion merchant-prince Ganz.
The relationship of these two to the intelligence and espionage apparatus of Starfleet and the Klingon Empire proves central to the series's narrative. Characters are revealed to be, like Arne Darvin in " The Trouble With Tribbles ," surgically-altered Klingon spies, and the ruthless efforts taken both by the more militaristic Starfleet of the TOS-era and the other interstellar powers add further realpolitik to the series.
The central mystery of the series, and the secret reason for the Federation push into the Taurus Reach, is a massive genetic mystery, the Shedai Meta-genome. As the series continues, its connection to a powerful and violent ancient threat becomes clearer, as well as this threat's relationship to the origins and emergence of the Tholian species.
