The Bevrudl have long been devoted separatists, but now that they're in the middle of a potential cross-fire situation with the Federation and the Elyshans, they're keen to seek some form of protection. As Captain Krace of the Iapetus is sent to negotiate a deal with the local government, the situation becomes more complicated than the crew were first led to believe, leading up to a most shocking turn of events...
The debut mission of the USS Iapetus in Bravo Fleet's Task Force 38, Captain Krace and his crew will have three months to prepare themselves for the Delta Quadrant as they make their journey to the Union Gateway. However, their long road trip will not be quite as uneventful as they all originally thought...
The USS Iapetus has been reassigned to Bravo Fleet and after leaving Earth, finds herself passing close to the Regula system. The vessel is hailed by the Nova class science vessel USS Marconi which has been assigned to conduct further research on the Genesis project, for furthering the effectiveness of more conventional terraforming projects. It has been many decades since station Regula 1 was scuttled and disassembled, but research into what Dr. Marcus and her team were working on have continued on-and-off ever since, albeit on a smaller scale.
Upon rendezvousing with the Marconi, Captain Kaldor informs the Iapetus that they have detected a few anomalous readings in the sector which appear to have nothing to do with their research. Early reports from the Marconi suggest that it could be a vessel of some sort and Kaldor asks Krace to help them investigate. It is at that moment that an explosion rips through the hull of the Marconi, causing the hull to breach in a number of vital areas. The Marconi is lost and the crew of the Iapetus are forced to listen helplessly as the comm channel remains open. Just as the final explosion rips through the hull of the science vessel, Lt. Commander Valera detects a slight fluctuation in subspace, beginning a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.

Heart of an Explorer
