The Finnean Convergence Zone was discovered in 2371 by the USS Vasco de Gama.

Background

Following Starfleet's agreement to construct Deep Space 15 in orbit of Finnea Prime, various starships began to explore the sector, focusing particularly on the Moray Nebula. The USS Vasco de Gama was the first to detect the Convergence Zone and catalog it.

Noting the anomaly featured many characteristics as the fabled Delphic Expanse from the 2150s, the Vasco de Gama did not attempt to enter. In fact, shortly after arrival, an starship emerged from the expanse which quickly sounded a distress beacon. The Vasco de Gama attempted to come to the ship's aid, only to find that every evidence of biological material melted as if touched by warp plasma coolant. Nothing aboard the ship survived.

The Vasco de Gama continued to study the anomaly, even to the point of making first contact with the Chabanlons, living on a planet residing just outside the Convergence Zone. Under guidance from the Chabanlons, who had several times attempted to study the anomaly themselves, the Vasco de Gama planted warning beacons around the anomaly, warning any starship coming through the area not to enter.

Every couple of years, a ship will attempt to exit the zone. All but one of these attempts were met with failure, the only success was at the hands of the Aketi. Other ships, including the arrogant Rakhari have tried to enter. Those attempts have always ended tragically. Still, the Vasco de Gama has carefully collected information about each attempt in the event Starfleet needs to enter.

Behavior & Features

The Vasco de Gama has fired probe after probe into the Convergence Zone, each time telemetry not lasting for more than a thousand Astronomical Units. Although the telemetry was always received in fragmented fashion, the Vasco de Gama has been able to determine that multiple spatial phenomena reside inside the zone including:

  • White Holes
  • Black Holes
  • Occasional detection of Chroniton Particles.
  • Evidence of lifeforms
  • Evidence of planets
  • Subspace eddies and fissures

Without complete data, it is nearly impossible to determine exactly what is happening inside the zone.
