Star Trek Adventures (Modiphius)
Despite continuing tensions with the Romulans, and now with the recently encountered Dominion, Starfleet remains focused on its mission of exploration. A key area in achieving that end is a massive swath of unexplored territory at the edges of known space within the Beta Quadrant. Informally known as the Shackleton Expanse — after the renowned ancient Earth explorer Ernest Shackleton — this remote region spans dozens of sectors containing hundreds of uncharted systems.
Until recently, little was known about the Expanse save for what little data long-range sensor probes had collected and the stories and legends that were culled from independent traders who claimed to travel in and near the Expanse.
