The Sixth Fleet 1 -- Preludes

The following stories are written about the captains and crews of the U.S.S. Enterprise, NCC-1701-B, as well as the U.S.S. Excelsior, NCC-2000; the U.S.S. Chosin, NCC-2950; the U.S.S. Hyperion, NCC-10100; as well as other ships in the Sixth Fleet. Commanding this expeditionary force into the Beta Quadrant is none other than Fleet Captain Chekov, much to the delight of Captains Uhura and Kelsey, and much to the chagrin of Captain Sulu. The Beta Quadrant is an untamed sector of space, more of a frontier than anything else. Aliens of all sorts present new and unique challenges to the crews of these fine starships.
