Stardate 236803.05: a Starfleet explorer ship finishes mapping a solar system and they labelled it UXSys 2355874. All that was known about the system was it contained fifteen planets and a binary star both suns were the same composition as Sol, but one was larger than the other. Passing through they managed to locate at least six habitable worlds, three marginal three uninhabitable and three Gas Giants. When they got back they reported that they were chased out of the system by as of yet an unknown species, who did not show their faces. They seemed to be as advanced as Starfleet was at that time; it was only due to the fact that the explorer ship was that and lightly armed that the Starfleet ship was allowed to leave unharmed with a cryptic message do not return till after ten and two of your years.
Stardate 238009.15: Twelve years later an Intrepid class ship returns to UXSys 2355874 and moves through the system unhindered on an outermost planet a Class M world but smaller than the earth they find trace energy readings and compared it with the energy signature taken of the ship twelve years previously and found a 99.95% match. The planet was a wasteland, but there was a familiar circle cut out of the ground around what must have been a high tech complex, there was other energy signatures too and they were Borg, but they were old as there was no other high tech in the system the Borg had not returned. Around the larger sun fourth planet out was a vibrant class M world same size as earth, but it had a pre-industrial civilization just about to reach a technological status. With this updated report the ship sent the information back to earth for further study.
Stardate 239010.23: This time a Vesta class was sent out and the same planet had advanced to early space flight era, this meant that the planet had communication satellites which meant that the Vesta class could only do long range scans, but the Prime Directive was put fully in place at this time and the system still had no name to it but a stealth probe got clear images of the species that inhabited the planet. The species average height was six foot but they had people of different sizes and height also, they had dark blue hair and skin and golden coloured iris’s, not much more could be gained only some language based recordings, with the latest information the ship returned to earth with this data and the linguistics team got to work on working out a translation matrix for the language. Also the Borg residual signatures had totally dissipated but that did not mean they would not return at some point.
Stardate 239205.01: Captain Jasmine Somers is called to the Admiral’s office on Starbase 39 Sierra and is briefed as the Tomcat’s science package was being updated and expanded for their next mission.
