Welcome to Starbase Wake Island
In the Gamma Quadrant, there is only one way home. The Bajoran Wormhole.
Task Force 9 are the Guardians of the Wormhole. The Starbase Wake Island is Task Force 9's emergency response team. When the tough explorers and hardy individuals of the Task Force need a little back up, they call on the Wake Island.
This is not some backwater star base, just floating in space or guarding a merchant lane. This is Starfleet's most forward installation of ships and Marines. Not content to sit back and be just a garrison, the Marines of the base go anywhere and do anything to protect the settlers, colonies and territories of the Federation as it gains a foothole on the far side of the Bajoran wormhole.
There are stories to be told, adventures to plan and epics to be involved in. Do you have it in you?
