USS Juneau

The USS Juneau has been assigned to a region of space known as the Aavaro Wilds - a region of space experiencing a power vacuum after withdrawal by Cardassian forces. Previously annexed by the Cardassian Union the Wilds were never fully integrated into the Union and were always a source of consternation for the Central Command. Now that the newly formed Democratic forces of Cardassia find themselves forced to consolidate and shore up their borders the Wilds have been deemed 'more trouble than they are worth.'

The Wilds has many areas unexplored, offering havens for Pirates, Outlaws, and peaceful civilizations alike and rather than allow the region to fall vacuum Starfleet has agreed to maintain a presence in the area, starting with the USS Eagle and followed up with the USS Juneau under the command of Oddas Aria.
