USS Talon by Erin Moriarty
[ - ]
Summary: The year is 2408. Starfleet's most recently commissioned Sovereign-class vessel, the USS Talon, NCC 75861, had been sent into the Gamma Quadrant to carry out Starfleet's most exciting orders: to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no-one has gone before. However, that all changed after a startling revelation. With the Cardassian and Klingon Empires in turmoil, the Talon’s original mission has been scrapped, and now the Talon’s crew endeavors to gain a foothold in the Gamma Quadrant for colonization, all the while watching for trouble from their foes. rnrnThe Talon is based out of Starbase Gamma Etimon, a state-of-the-art station orbiting the idyllic Federation member world, Etimon. Standing as the Federation’s most remote outpost, Starbase Gamma Etimon is tasked with defending Federation space and values, and aiding the people of Etimon as they work to recover from war.

Summary: The Beauty of Gray Bajoran Lieutenant JG Kayden Rychel and Cardassian Lieutenant Helik Dakbar had not gotten off to a good start. On the one hand, it seemed perfectly obvious. Even in 2408, there were tensions between Cardassians and Bajorans, and there were some who believed that the Federation would be at war with the Empire before the decade was done. Still, they were both Starfleet officers, fighting the good fight, or so it appeared, until a “harmless” comment from Rychel provoked an unexpected reaction from Dakbar. What followed was a love story that spanned life, death, espionage, questionable loyalties, blood ties, and much, much more.

Still, if love was easy, everyone would do it.
