  • Following the death of Praetor Shinzon at the Battle of Bassen Rift, the Romulan government fell into disarray. Tal'aura, one of the few remaining members of the Romulan Senate and a former ally of Shinzon, declared herself the new Praetor, supported by Fleet Commander Tomalak as the new leader of the Imperial Defense Force. However, Tal'aura's leadership was opposed by Commander Donatra, who with the support of Commander Suran and former Admiral Braeg retained control of the majority of the Fifth and Third fleets. Any hope of a reconciliation between the two sides ended after the execution of Braeg, and Donatra vowed never to accept Tal'aura's rule. Donatra's rebellion was not Tal'aura's only concern. The Remans, led by General Xiomek of the Reman Kapeszuk Battalion, demanded control of either a continent on Romulus or a planet with sufficient natural resources to maintain self-sufficient settlements as reparations for hundreds of years of slavery and exploitation. In response, Tal'aura cut shipments of food and needed supplies to Remus and commanded Tomalak to blockade the planet.[1]

  • Two trials are of note during this time. On Stardate 56867.84, the Founder known as the Female Changeling was sentenced for crimes committed against sentient beings during the Dominion War and committed to the Federation maximum security facility at Ananke Alpha. And on Stardate 58370.4, Ro Laren surrendered to Starfleet custody. A former member of Starfleet who defected to the Maquis in 2370, Ro pleaded guilty to charges of desertion and was ordered to report to a penal facility on Earth for rehabilitation.[1]
  • The deepening economic crisis on Cardassia Prime was a concern to both the Federation and the Klingon Empire in 2380. The Cardassians were devastated by Dominion bombardment in the final days of the Dominion War, suffering more than 800 million casualties. Large portions of Cardassia Prime were in ruins and the Cardassian government did not have the resources to recover. Nevertheless, they rejected most Federation aid. A notable exception to this stance is the Andak project, a Federation-funded program intended to restore Cardassia Prime's agricultural base. Led by Keiko O'Brien, the Andak project initially faced stiff reistance from xenophobic groups such as the True Way, as well as Gul Macet's conservative bloc of the government. Only the influence of Cardassian governmental adviser Elim Garak, a supporter of the fledgling democracy movement, allowed the Andak project to proceed, and the team was permitted to continue its work to make the barran desert climate of Cardassia Prime support sufficient crops to feed its population. Experts at the Daystrom Institute predicted that without more successful projects like the Andak initiative, the Cardassian Union could fall in as little as three years.[1]
