Delta Quadrant

Starfleet History in the Delta Quadrant

After the return of the USS Voyager, a large number of research projects were started based off of the new technologies Voyager and her crew come across in the Delta Quadrant. Of those Projects was the development of the Graviton Catapult.

During the Development of the Graviton Catapult, Starfleet Engineers quickly realized that they were unable to recreate the power requirements needed. The Catapult Voyager came across and that Starfleet was reverse engineering, was powered by tetryon reactors, created by the Caretakers.

Undiscouraged Starfleet Engineers realized that they could use the power of a Star to power the Catapult. But due to the unique properties and power requirements only O-type stars, the rarest at 0.00003% of stars, could provide the right conditions.

Finding a suitable star near the Cygnet system and SB11 construction began in 2382. In 2385 the Catapult was fully built after some major design setbacks. For the next 3 years, the Catapult was tested again and again. Taking it’s time to ensure that calculations were correct Starfleet began to send manned test flights in 2388.

With no Major loss of life or property, the technology and catapult were starting to seem sound and reliable. In 2389 the question then raised by Starfleet was what do we do with this technology.
