However, it does not directly appear in Star Trek Online and may be part of the game's backstory or is referenced in-game. As the Star Trek Online Wiki is dedicated to in-game content, broader Star Trek lore can be looked up on Memory Alpha and Memory Beta.

In-Universe Blogs are blog entries on the official Star Trek Online website which are written from an in-universe perspective. They often serve to provide backstory for upcoming content. In addition to the individual blog entries summarized here, there have also been two series of short stories, Tales of the War and Post War Era, published through the web site.

Season 5 Dev Blog #6[edit | edit source]

Captured Jem'Hadar Attack Ships
  • Captain Va'Kel Shon of the U.S.S. Belfast records a log entry. His crew have discovered an abandoned Jem'Hadar Attack Ship in the Enocha System; the ship appears to be several decades out of date, and may in fact be a relic of the Dominion War. An away team sent to the vessel reports that it appears to be in excellent condition, and there is no indication of why it would have been abandoned. Musing that Tress would have appreciated this mission, Shon reports that his orders are to tow the vessel to Starbase 375.
  • In a separate log entry, Admiral Mirren Sola of Starbase 375 indicates that there are now three abandoned Jem'Hadar vessels at the station, and that the U.S.S. Kirk has discovered another in the Pi Canis Sector Block. There are reports that the Klingons have found similar ships, but Sola thinks it unwise to contact D'Vak about the matter. Messages sent to the Dominion have gone unanswered.

Season 5 Dev Blog #22[edit | edit source]

Prelude to The 2800: Second Wave
  • Lieutenant C'thal of Starbase 375 and his team have completed their analysis of the recovered Jem'Hadar vessels. They have been able to confirm that the ship was constructed during the time of the Dominion War, and that all of the now-dozens of recovered vessels were from the same fleet. Further, neutrinos detected in all of the ships indicate that they originated in the Bajoran wormhole. He is unable to explain how the ship got from the wormhole to the Enocha System without being detected, or why the wormhole would suddenly be ejecting so many derelict ships. Assuming that the ships constitute a temporal anomaly, C'thal speculates that the derelict vessels may be from the Dominon fleet that went missing during Operation Return in 2374. He decides to consult the "Old Man" in hopes of verifying this theory.

Reports from the Nukara System
  • A series of log entries by the Second Officer of the S.S. Mauss details the vessel's monitoring of the relatively primitive Nukaran culture inhabiting Nukara IV. As time passes, the crew of the Mauss discover that there are interphasic rifts on Nukara Prime. Eventually, Tholian ships are detected; anticipating being discovered and destroyed, the Second Officer encodes the data collected thus far. The wreckage of the Mauss is later discovered by the U.S.S. Alliance, which recovers the encrypted data.

While Drij does not believe the Seven Families to be directly involved in the New Khitomer attack, she hypothesizes that Vosk is receiving financial support from them. She further suggests that elements of the Na'kuhl and Krenim are working together out of mutual interest, though their alliance seems unstable. Drij reports a rumor that Vosk's forces operate from a well-hidden space station - possibly one which exists outside the timeline.

Ensign Black is attacked and possessed by the entity, which then kills its Na'kuhl "handler." Black is captured and returned to the Pastak, but cannot be separated from Redjac.

With the assistance of Elim Garak, Drij is able to pick Borucki's pocket during a staged interrogation, retrieving a bomb Borucki was unwittingly carrying for Arne Darvin, which would have destroyed all of the Bajoran Orbs, with the exception of the Orb of Time, which was in Darvin's possession. After the pair return to New Khitomer, Garak, who recognized Nereda from a years-earlier encounter, takes the opportunity afforded by the encounter to steal Nereda's mission recorder, and begins to download its contents.

Taanu confirms that the Lukari have determined that the Tzenkethi are using Protomatter weaponry, and have detonated several devices along the Alpha Quadrant frontier. Taanu speculates that the Tzenkethi may be testing their weapon in advance of deploying it against the Alliance. Taanu states that the Lukari will be sending their new flagship to investigate the protomatter activity, though he is displeased with the design compromises made as a result of Captain Kuumaarke's advocacy of scientific capabilities. Rodek assures Taanu that he will personally lead a Klingon force to accompany the Lukari ship on its mission.

All Our Crusades[edit | edit source]

  • Aboard the Tzenkethi vessel Steadfast, Lieutenant Hulrun informs Captain Yur Tzen-Crinnu that he has discovered another planet which must be destroyed with protomatter weaponry, in accordance with Autarchical Dictate 1219. Tzen-Crinnu orders the ship to divert to the planet, and retires to his quarters. Later, Hulrun visits Tzen-Crinnu in his quarters to log an official protest; he believes that the Autarchical Dictate is counter to the Tzenkethi way. Tzen-Crinnu agrees, stating that it had been foolish of the Tzenkethi to attack the Federation and the Empire years earlier, and that their people were still on the Path of Madness, as the Autarch's son was committed to vengeance. Tzen-Crinnu states that he has a counter-proposal to Hulrun's protest. When they arrive at the target world, Tzen-Crinnu turns the Steadfast's weapons on the bomb site, destroying it without detonating the protomatter weapon. He informs his crew that to follow these orders would be madness, and orders them to set course for the nearest Federation system.

  1. Walker refers to now knowing 'how the Entity got off Earth in 1888'. This statement is inconsistant with information from TOS: 'Wolf in the Fold' which depicts Redjac as remaining on Earth until at least 1974.
