 You know that I've made it pretty clear that if I ever come up with a crew and ship, especially for this era, they would be a part of Starfleet.

 That said, upon finding out that some of the colonies were "given" to the Kzinti as part of a peace settlement, the attitude would probably be "they come within one AU of any of those inhabited worlds, and they become fair game"!

 There will always be military hardliners who don't appreciate incursions, especially from cannibals, even in Starfleet.

Well, it was all hush-hush. The "polit episode" of the Polaris is Metlesits and the crew finding out the secret and racing against time (and S31) to bring it to light.

 You know, this feels a little bit similar to what happened about 90 odd years later with the Cardassians!

Has Captain Metlesits been correctly read in?

Captain Augustus Willbourne: Peace agreement my ass. *Drinks Rum* We suffer three consecutive wars with these mangy cats and Starfleet finally gets off it ass only to make peace, some of these Admiral's need to be shot.

Captain Harrison Jacobson: While I may not agree with this order myself, I think the Welly needs a serious and real repair then all of the patch jobs we did during the war. You are damned lucky the Polaris never turned into the damage sponge that the Welly did, I doubt there's enough of the Welly's original hull plating to make a shuttlecraft.

Captain Nicholas Harding (to Augustus Willbourne): While i may not agree with how starfleet's doing things with Section 31... theres no point in pointing fingers at anyone.

Captain Nicholas Harding (to Harrison Jacobson): I guess i can count the Highwind lucky she joined in near the end of this war

Cpt. Augustus Willbourne (Cpt. Nicholas Harding): Starfleet has gone soft! *waves around a nearly empty bottle of Rum* In the past, we didn't take shit like this, we fought back! Look what happened when the Xindi attacked Earth or when we fought the Romulans! *finishes off the bottle of rum* They are more concerned about their precious peacetime lives and their appearance to the masses! *smashes the bottle on the ground, then opens a newer bottle* Starfleet should have blasted those mangy cats back to the stone age and be done with it.

Thank you.

I actually based this whole thing around Roddenberry's original Star trek pitch in which a similar in-universe document about "Captain Robert M. April" is featured. Also the similar document which comes with the Anovos TOS Captain's uniform replica.

Yeah, if I remember rightly, David doesn't think to highly of Starfleet.

Relco Wainsworth: being a full on Captain seems better than Acting Captain, Captain Metlesits.

It's a long story. The Polaris was originally a United Earth First Fleet ship under command of Captain Tomislav Tvrtko. David was his XO. During the third Man-Kzin War, Tvrtko returned to Earth to raise awareness of the Kzinti winning the war. David was left behind as Acting Captain.
Section 31 negotiated a peace using its Starfleet connections. It meant the UEFF losing the war and some colonies were given over to the Kzinti. Most surviving Pallada class starships, the First Fleet's best and strongest ships, were also transferred to Starfleet, with crew and all.

so in the TL:DR.

Tvrtko returned to earth.
David was left as captain.
All surviving Pallada Classes were transfered to the UFP.

and now we are here.

thanks for telling me about it :)
