Battle Group Omega
Assembled jointly by the Federation and the Klingon Empire to counter the Borg threat, Battle Group Omega (also known Task Force Omega) is a fleet stationed in the Noro Sector. The fleet is home to Omega Force. It serves as a deep space staging ground for incursions into Borg space and is also a faction in the personal Reputation System. A nearby asteroid belt provides raw materials and supplies for the fleet, while a nearby rogue moon emits low-level delta radiation, which hides the fleet's energy signature from the Borg.

History[edit | edit source]
- A fleet known as "Battle Group Omega" was formed in 2379 in response to the threat by the I.R.W. Scimitar. At the time, it consisted of just eight Federation starships - U.S.S. Enterprise-E, U.S.S. Intrepid, U.S.S. Valiant, U.S.S. Galaxy, U.S.S. Aries, U.S.S. Nova, U.S.S. Hood, and U.S.S. Archer.
- Facing a renewed invasion by the Borg in 2409, the situation has drastically changed. In order to combat the Borg, the Klingon Empire and Federation allowed Admiral D'Vak to form Omega Force, a military force operating outside the structure of the Klingon Defense Force and Starfleet; therefore, captains of both factions are serviced by the Omega fleet. In early 2410, Task Force Omega and other cooperations between both factions led to the signing of a general cease-fire to face the common Iconian threat.
Ships[edit | edit source]
At Battle Group Omega, ships from each faction provide services to the player. The player must be within 3 km of a starship to utilize its services.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Originally located in the since-removed Gamma Orionis Sector Block, the in-game system description still refers to this area of space, rather than the battle group's new location in the Beta Quadrant.
- The original U.S.S. Victory, a Jupiter-class dreadnought, can still be seen in Sector Space. On the actual Battle Group Omega map, the Victory is a Galaxy-X class.
