News Briefs - Episode 17
The Klingon EmpireThe Orion Syndicate signed a non-aggression and mutual defense pact with Klingon Chancellor J’mpok, allying the Orion Syndicate and the Klingon Empire. The Syndicate will receive ships, weapons and a planet in Klingon space that they can rule as a vassal state, while the Klingon Empire gains the Syndicate’s allegiance, access to their intelligence network, and technology.
This comes as a stunning blow to the Federation who has announced that this treaty marks the end of Federation/Klingon relations. Starfleet has amped up its presence in the old neutral zone and the Klingon Empire has reactivated most of its old neutral zone bases.
According to an inside source, Chancellor J’mpok was sent a gift of 1,500 female slaves taken from Federation planets. Chancellor Hanzu Khan has sent an envoy to negotiate the release of these prisoners.
