To stand on a new world and look beyond it to the next one.
Since Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon, this has been our goal, as explorers. We endeavor to know more, to seek out, to discover. We honor the past fallen explorers. The crew of Apollo who gave their lives in the quest for exploration, The Challenger Astronauts who gave their lives leading us into our future, The Columbia Astronauts who gave their lives in the name of progress. For the last 347 years we have expanded from our own solar system, to distant stars, distant worlds. We have grasped the reality that we were not alone. We have extended the hands of humanity to greet species from other worlds, working side by side as we endeavor to answer a common question.... "what's out there?
These are the continuing voyages of the U.S.S. Guardian. The new Odyssey Class Heavy Cruiser (NCC-82001) has taken station in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants to provide a deterrant against any incursion into Federation space, protect the worlds of these sectors, and the Federation, and will endeavor to uphold the history, and the standards set by Starships and their crews from the NX-01, to current day.
Come along for the ride... it's going to be exciting.......

Good Day Captain.
Your mission and summary are as follows.
The Romulan Republic leader, D'Tan, has requested that we assist them with some internal matters, that could have the potential to effect the affairs of the Romulan people on Dewa III (New Romulas). In this regard he has appointed Ambassador Tre'Val as our liason to him, and the Romulan people and requested she work with us directly to seek out, investigate, and assist with any issues that may come to light.
You will grant her not only full diplomatic immunity and latitude, but also allow her all privileges and honors due that of a dignitary, within reason Captain, you are inevitably in Command of your ship, and it's mission.
Our primary concern for the moment is as follows. As you are aware, The Romulans use a forced quantum singularity to power most of their key planetary facilities, as well as their Starships. A by-product of this process is a compound called Terranidium. This compound is similar to antimatter in that it's reaction to matter would cause an event similar to that of a matter-antimatter discharge. It is removed at regular intervals from the Forced Singularity plants containment equipment as a matter of safety and in it's innate state, it is harmless under proper controls. However, when combined with antimatter it exponentially increases the volatile nature of the antimatter. Experiments have shown that it can severely destabilize the ability to control and contain the antimatter. With respect to weapons, it is dangerous in that it can be used to significantly increase the yield of a warhead, while still lacking the necessary safety features required. Transportation and disposal of this compound is carefully guarded.
The location, route, and frequency of these transports are not only protected by the highest measures of security, the schedules and locations of the disposal procedures are transmitted to Starfleet Intelligence as a result of the Treaty secured between the Federation and the Romulan Republic.
We believe this process and these safeguards have been compromised.
Future contact and discussion as well as additional orders concerning this mission and subject will be restricted to this command, level Bravo Four clearance and above, only.
That is all,
