Part 1 – Prelude
2360 Earth, Starfleet headquarters San Francisco, Federation research council meeting room ten.
Professor Maximilian Davros is before Federation research council for working on unauthorised genetic engineering against federation law. The panel of fellow scientist are here to decide what action would be taken against Professor Davros.
At twenty-five years old Professor Maximilian Davros is the youngest scientist in the Federation and a former child genius, sitting quietly in a chair across from his fellow scientist awaiting their decision.
But Professor Davros has other ideas, clearing his throat he says that the experiments that he did were wrong and states that he will be leaving Earth for a colony along the Federation/Cardassian boarder and will go into self-imposed exile and he hopes that his fellow scientists will respect his decision.
The head of the panel, the eight-nine year old Professor Margaret Thomas disagrees with Professor Davros and states that Professor Davros decision is too harsh and that they were planning on only suspending him for twenty-four months, but Professor Davros states that he has made up his mind and will leave as soon as his ship has been prepared.
Over the next few hours all the members of the panel try to talk Professor Davros out of his decision, but none of them are successful in doing so. So they agree to Professor Davros own punishment and that he may leave when his ship is ready, they do make on caveat in that after twenty-four months is free to return to Earth and former position (as long as he does not continue his work that got him into in to this trouble in the first place).
One month later Professor Davros long-range shuttlecraft departs with the back filled with creates of research work (including electronic copies of his genetic research work) and four prototype Daleks with a primitive positronic brains with no organic enhancements as yet.
Arrival and Setting up
In mid 2360 Professor Davros long-range shuttlecraft arrives at the Federation colony of Olack seven on an island that he purchased for his seclusion (and to complete his research in private). The planet of Olack seven has a total Federation population of 18,000 people in several small villages scattered over the planet.
The island is roughly twenty kilometres long by fifteen wide, once Professor Davros has landed in the centre of the island he activates the four prototype Daleks (something the Federation research council did not know that even existed) and they begin to offload the contents of the shuttlecraft, which includes components of an industrial level replicator for constructing a combination laboratory/research/construction facility.
This facility will take the four prototype Daleks six months to construct. While this is being constructed Professor Davros will live inside the shuttlecraft. Once the construction facility part has been completed additional positronic Daleks will be built to speed up construction of the remaining facility.
To be continued.
Next – Part 2 – Research (2361 – 2370)
Part 2 – Research (2361 – 2370)
By the end of 2360, the positronic prototype Daleks, have finished construction of the combination laboratory/research/construction facility and Professor Davros has moved in. The positronic prototype Daleks now number fifty strong and have been upgraded with an energy weapon (that is more powerful than a Federation phaser rifle) of Professor Davros own design for defence just in case the Federation should find out what he is up to, but Professor Davros is relying on concealment rather than force.
During the first twelve months Professor Davros works on making an organic brain for the Daleks that can be fused with the positronic brain so that the Dalek will have the best of organic and artificial intelligence.
The positronic Daleks continue to be upgraded and enhanced during this time, with improved equipment and system upgrades, several of these upgrades and designed by the Daleks themselves. As each new generation of Daleks is created the previous generation is recycled for their raw materials.
The Daleks have their own command structure with a Black supreme Dalek as commander of all Daleks, and then is an immobile red coloured coordinator Dalek that is plugged into the various computer systems and then there are the gold coloured Soldier Daleks, white coloured research Daleks and the blue coloured engineer Daleks.
The total number of Daleks that have been produced by the end of 2361 is just over 1,200 units of all types now that the production facilities have been expanded and upgraded more Daleks can be produced as needed.
The colonists of Olack seven during these first eighteen months (up to the end of 2361) have very little contact with Professor Davros, and do not know what Professor Davros is working on and don’t really care. The colonists tend to keep to themselves, so as Professor Davros seems to want privacy the colonists leave him alone on the island where he is working.
Throughout all of 2362 Professor Davros and his team of research Daleks continue to have failure after failure in growing a brain that is genetically capable of linking to a positronic brain. On the positive side the positronic brain of the Daleks continues to be improved and updated with new capabilities.
The facility is expanded underground as an expansion on the surface of the island would draw too much attention. The underground expansion goes down and also spreads outwards so that like an iceberg only the tip shows. The underground facilities are screened by sensor baffles to conceal the facilities from any kind of sensor scans, all the research laboratories are moved into the new underground facilities, including the Dalek production facilities.
Leaving only Professor Davros “agricultural research” cover facilities and home in the “old” buildings on the surface of the island.
This proves to be very useful when the Nebula class starship USS Farragut makes a routine visit to the colony to check on the colonist’s welfare. The crew of the Farragut do not find anything suspicious in Professor Davros, so after routine medical test, they leave Professor Davros to his “agricultural research”.
2363 – 2366
For the next few years Professor Davros would continue to have failure after failure in researching an organic brain. The underground facilities would eventually reach out under the island by just over 1.5 kilometres in a large circle the underground facilities have their own reactors to power the various pieces of scientific equipment.
By 2366 the tension between the Cardassian and Federation colonist have reached boiling point even though bother the Cardassian’s and Federation do not want any conflict the Cardassian and Federation colonist are determined to not be ruled by either the Cardassian or the Federation, that have given their homes away to their enemy, in 2366 a Federation-Cardassian Treaty is signed making these systems in the treaty area a demilitarised zone (this does not stop the out breaks of fighting).
Fortunately the colony of Olack seven is still within Federation space, but Professor Davros orders his Daleks to convert the 1.5 kilometres research facility into a spacecraft just in case they need to move to a new location.
In addition the above ground facility is to be protected by force field generators to defect any orbital bombardment, these emitters and to be concealed as part of the conversion of the underground research facility into a spacecraft.
The total number of Daleks now stands as 3,275 units with just over half being the military version also 1,000 of the military version are put into storage until they are needed.
The research work will continue but at a slower pace.
2367 – 2370
Between 2367 and 2370 the situation between the Federation and the Cardassian colonists was getting worse with an increase in the number of attacks by both sides. The conflict was now spiralling out of control of both the Federation and Cardassian governments.
This did have one advantage for Professor Davros in that the regular visits by Federation starships where now becoming more and more infrequent and when a starship did visit it was only for the briefest of checks as most Federation starships are needed along the DMZ.
In 2369, the Cardassians decided to withdraw from Bajor after sixty years of occupation. Unable to move the station across interstellar distances, they were forced to leave the outpost in its high orbit. Before departing, however, Cardassian soldiers rampaged across the station removing or destroying a large portion of the station's equipment and killing several shop owners.
In 2370 two events happened one the discovery of a stable wormhole from the Bajoran system in the Alpha quadrant to the Idran System in the Gamma quadrant, the second was a new treaty between the Federation and Cardassian governments to try and stop the violence between the citizens on the DMZ (this would only make things worse and case quite a number of Starfleet officers to desert to the Maquis).
But the wormhole would bring a new enemy the Dominion this would change everything for Professor Davros in the long term and the Dominion would provide the missing information for Professor Davros work.
To be continued.
Next – Part 3 – Dominion

Part 3 – Dominion
At the end of 2370, the Dominion took Captain Sisko and Quark hostage in the Gamma quadrant, the Galaxy class USS Odyssey along with several of DS9’s runabouts is sent to rescue them and in the ensuing battle a Jem’Hadar fighter rams the Odyssey in a suicide attack destroying the Odyssey.
On hearing this news Professor Davros orders that all research is to cease for the time being and all Daleks are to concentrate on converting the underground facilities in to a 1.5 kilometre across saucer shaped spacecraft. The coordinator Dalek informs Professor Davros that this work will take until at least early 2374.
In early 2371 on a mission to try and negotiate peaceful terms with the Dominion Captain Sisko discover that the founders of the leaders of the Dominion called the Founders are Odo’s race of changelings.
After receiving the report on the changelings being the founders, Professor Davros writes a scanning protocol that should be able to detect a changeling disguised as anything this protocol is uploaded into all Daleks, as the Daleks have their own in built sensors they should be able to detect if their is a changeling near them, also using the sensors on the ship that is under construction the Daleks also be able to detect changelings anywhere on the island.
The military programming of the Daleks is also continually being updates with new and improved battle and combat tactics. The white coloured research Daleks and the blue coloured engineer Daleks receive additional programming as starship pilots.
Between 2371 and 2373 the situation between the Dominion and the Federation gets much worse with paranoia about possible changeling infiltrators within the Federation. The overthrow of the Cardassian by the civilian Detapa Council leads the Klingon Empire into thinking that the Dominion has infiltrated the Cardassian government.
The leads to the Klingon Empire invading Cardassian space in 2372, the Klingon’s are able to seize several Cardassian systems, but information received via Deep Space 9 allows the Cardassian military to mount a strong defence leading to the Klingon-Cardassian War
The war devastated Cardassian infrastructure and crippled a large portion of their fleets. The Detapa Council, with the help of Gul Dukat and the Federation, was able to obtain asylum aboard Deep Space 9. After the Klingons were successfully driven away the war became a stalemate, with Klingon ships able to roam freely throughout Cardassian territory.
The second effect leads the Klingon Empire to withdraw from the Khitomer Accords, ending the Federation-Klingon alliance. This withdrawal did not start a war between the Klingons and the Federation, but it did come very close. This leads the Klingons to keep well clear of Federation colonies such as Olack seven as the Klingons do not want to fight a war on two fronts.
In 2373, the Dominion suddenly invaded the Alpha Quadrant with dozens of ships coming through the Bajoran wormhole. The Federation was preparing for the worst assuming the fleet was going to begin an interstellar war by attacking Deep Space 9. Shortly thereafter, Dukat reveals that he had secretly negotiated an alliance with the Dominion over the past few months and made Cardassia an official member, only weeks prior to the Dominion's entry of the Alpha Quadrant.
The Detapa Council became completely powerless with Cardassia formerly annexed and Dukat as the designated leader of the Cardassian people.
Dukat later "justified" his actions, by saying the alliance with the Dominion would restore Cardassia to its former glory and promising to push every Klingon ship from Cardassian territory and wipe out every Maquis colony in the DMZ.
Dukat made well on his promise, for within three days every Maquis colony was destroyed with only a few members able to evade capture or death, and the entire Klingon invasion force was in full retreat.
With the Cardassian Union's borders returned to there pre-war state Dukat had successfully raised the Union to be a first-rate power in the Alpha Quadrant.
However, Dukat's personal ambitions, combined with the Founders desire to bring order to the galaxy, mean that an interstellar war is inevitable. Requiring constant reinforcements of ships, supplies, troops and Ketracel-white from the Gamma Quadrant to be able to conquer the entire Alpha Quadrant, the Federation decided to mine the entrance of the wormhole to prevent the strength of the Dominion from growing.
This move was the provocation the Dominion needed to start a full-scale war against the Federation without coming across as the aggressors. The Dominion then sent a fleet of ships to capture Deep Space Nine and prevent the minefield from completion, which results in Dukat retaking the station.
Thus, the Dominion War has begun.
In the early stages of the war the combined Dominion/Cardassian fleet begin an invasion of the Federation starting with the colonies along the natural zone.
A Dominion/Cardassian task force of twenty warships is ordered to take the Federation colony of Olack seven. The task force consists of two Dominion troop transports fifteen Jem'Hadar attack fighters and three Cardassian Keldon class heavy cruisers.
The red coordinator Dalek deep within the nearly complete ship detects the incoming Dominion/Cardassian task force and sounds the alert and begins to activate the stored Daleks and the ships defence systems.
The Dominion/Cardassian are about to find out the hard way that attacking the Daleks is a very bad idea.
To be continued.

July 30th, 2007, 04:39 PM
Part 4 – Invasion
The red coordinator deep with the centre of the buried Dalek ship has raised the shields (providing a “umbrella” shield covering the buried Dalek ship) and has also began to power up the ships weapon systems, with Professor Davros leaving the running of the defences to the supreme and coordinator Daleks and only making comments when necessary (after all that’s what Davros created them to do!).
The Dominion/Cardassian task force detects a shield protecting and area of one of the islands on the planets surface, initially the joint commands a Vorta and Cardassian agree that the other settlements need to be dealt with first and then they will deal with this problem last.
Over the next few hours Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops occupy most of the other settlements on Olack seven and during this process about half the population is killed. The nearest settlement to Professor Davros ship has fled from their homes and the people from the settlement ask for protection from Professor Davros. Professor Davros initially does not want to help these people but then changes his mind and agrees to protect them.
The 628 men, women and children are very surprised that they find a buried spaceship under Professor Davros research facility. But they are so grateful they don’t really care as long as they will be safe from the Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops.
The Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops begin to move towards the island to prepare for a ground assault against the unknown facility that is protected by a force field. The initial attack by just 1,500 troops is wiped out by the defending Daleks with ease, this leads the joint Vorta and Cardassian commanders agree to send in all remaining troops to assault this facility. They also order all the remaining population to be killed for apparently lying to the Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops occupying the settlements about have no defences on this world.
With all soldier Daleks now forming a defensive circle on the surface within the shield, the Daleks have a very strong defensive position. The Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops launch a frontal attack against the entire parameter of facility, when this happens Professor Davros orders that the ships jammers are to be switched on at maximum and a detachment of seventy-five Daleks are to attack the landing zones and capture the Dominion and Cardassian shuttlecraft.
The attack by the Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops does not go well, as the soldier Daleks are equipped with their own personnel shields and as they have no threat from the rear the soldier Daleks can concentrate their shield power to the front ark.
As the main battle goes on the detachment of seventy-five Daleks makes a lighting strike against the Dominion and Cardassian shuttlecraft landing area and manage to capture the shuttlecraft without any of the shuttlecraft managing to escape.
At the same time onboard the Dominion command ship the Vorta and Cardassian commanders find that their communications and sensors are being jammed, the Vorta orders the Jem'Hadar fighters to close and find out what is happening and report back.
Once the Jem'Hadar fighters close to within the weapons range of Davros buried ship, the ships main energy weapons open fire and destroy the Jem’Hadar fighters with ease. This is also the cue for the Daleks that have captured the Dominion and Cardassian shuttlecraft to launch and return to the Dominion and Cardassian warships in orbit.
The Vorta and Cardassian commanders do not suspect that the approaching shuttlecraft has been captured by the enemy and allow them to dock (because of the jamming). Once the Daleks are inside the Dominion and Cardassian warship they set about killing the crews, the last to be killed is the Vorta and the Vorta to tries to surrender the Dalek replies “Request denied, Exterminate” and then kills the Vorta.
The ground battle is now almost over as the majority of the Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops have been wiped out with only twenty Daleks destroyed and thirty damaged these losses can easily be replaced, the Jem'Hadar do not surrender and fight to the last, the Cardassian troops who try to surrender are killed.
In the aftermath of the battle all the bodies of the Jem'Hadar and Cardassian troops are vaporise as not to leave and clues as to what has caused this loss of Dominion and Cardassian military forces.
The reason Professor Davros wanted to capture the Dominion and Cardassian warships is twofold, one for the supply of anti matted to fuel his ships warp drive, and two so that the resources of the Dominion and Cardassian warships will be use to build a Dalek heavy cruiser class of warship.
After the battle is over Professor Davros buried ship on the surface of the island, now transfers’ is power from its weapon and shield systems to its sub light drive systems to enable the ship to break free of the planets gravitational field. This process takes several hours for the ship power up and to break free of the planets gravitational field and once in a stable orbit the fuelling (with anti matter) of the now renamed Dalek Mother Ship One (DMS1) can be completed.
Professor Davros informs the Olack seven colonist that are onboard DMS1 that they have achieved orbit and are going to head for and asteroid field to take stock and finish fitting out the ship, the leader of the Olack sevens 628 men, women and children is very grateful and thanks Professor Davros for saving them and offers any support needed, and also is very angry at the Federation for not protecting them and is quite happy to stay with Professor Davros and his Daleks for protection.
Discovery and Expansion.
While on route to the asteroid field the memory banks of the Dominion and Cardassian warships are drained of all their knowledge and information for annalists. One of the first finds is information of how the Jem'Hadar are “manufactured” this provides the key clue to produce to the organic brain element for the Daleks, once testing has been completed the organic brain element can simply be inserted into the existing Daleks to upgrade them. Thus the Dalek race is born.
The other useful information in the Dominion and Cardassian warships is about the Dominions weapons systems, which will allow all Dalek types and DMS1 shields to be modified to resist these types of weapons.
Once at the asteroid field the two Dominion troop transports and three Cardassian Keldon class heavy cruisers are to be dismantled to build the new heavy cruiser class of Dalek warship, the resources in the asteroid field will also help build more Dalek Heavy Cruisers (DHC). These heavy cruiser warships are smaller versions of the 1.5 kilometre long DMS1 and are only 750 meter long, but are more heavily equipped for space combat and planetary assault.
The Olack seven colonist quarters on DMS1 are made more comfortable and a section of DMS1 is put aside for the colonist to use, this also keeps the colonist minds occupied for the next few months as they settle into their new “home”.
Over the next few months construction of fifty Dalek heavy cruisers is completed and are crewed with the new upgraded Daleks with organic brains that have been grown in modified Jem'Hadar breeding chambers onboard DMS1. Once the construction is completed, the Dalek fleet now consists of one Mother Ship (DMS1) and fifty heavy cruisers and a total of 500,000 Dalek Soldiers.
The next question for Professor Davros is how to expand the Dalek production faculties and find a world to set-up a colony, not only for him and his Daleks, but also the colonists that he has saved?

Part 5 – Observation and Conquest
Over the next few months (as the new Daleks warships are being constructed) Professor Davros observes the Federation being defeated time and time again by the combined Dominion and Cardassian forces. Even though his theories where rejected by the Federation Science Council, Professor Davros feels that he should help the Federation in some way, but not by informing them that he has continued his experiments (Davros feels that the Federation would not understand his experiments).
Professor Davros decides to help the Federation indirectly by attacking a Cardassian system on the edge of the old pre war boarder. With a total of one DMS and fifty heavy cruisers and 500,000 Dalek troops this is no small force, but the question is where to attack the Dominion and Cardassian forces?
After looking at possible targets Professor Davros chooses the Chin'toka system, this is a Cardassian star system located near the old Federation/ Cardassian border, containing four planets and several moons, two of the four planets are habitable. Both planets only have a few million inhabitants and the system defences are minimal with a few squadrons of Cardassian Hideki class and Jem’Hadar fighters to protect the system.
A new defence system that is being installed that will not be operational for several weeks yet, using orbital weapon platforms are a type of powerful, automated planetary defence system developed by the Cardassian military. They are protected by regenerative shields also each orbital weapon platform is equipped with three heavy disruptors and 1,000 plasma torpedoes.
If the Dalek fleet can get there before the orbital weapon platforms are brought online and capture them, they can use the orbital weapon platforms to defend the system against any counter attack by the Cardassian or Dominion fleets and will then have an entire system for their own use. Professor Davros informs the colonists that he intends to take the Chin'toka system away from the Cardassians and keep it for his use and the colonists so that they can set-up and new colony in this system the colonists fully support this move.
Near the end of 2374 the Dalek fleet sets course for the Chin'toka system at maximum warp. The fleet will arrive eight days before the orbital weapon platforms are due to come online.
On arriving in the Chin'toka system some of the Dalek heavy cruisers rapidly dispose of the Cardassian Hideki class and Jem’Hadar fighters and then proceed to capture the control base on a large asteroid moon orbiting Chin'toka II, once this is done engineer Daleks begin to reprogram the system defences to protect the Daleks warships and to fire on anything else.
While this is going on the remaining Dalek heavy cruisers along with DMS1 go into orbit Chin'toka II and III (both M-class, and have a shared orbit) and begin an assault on the two Cardassian worlds to eradicate any resistance.
The total Cardassian population of both Chin'toka II and III is twenty-seven million people and a Jem’Hadar military force of 15,000 troops in a support role to the Cardassian military force of 100,000 troops.
Professor Davros orders the total extermination of the Cardassian and Dominion forces on both Chin'toka II and III so that there is no chance of any resistance groups forming.
The Cardassian and Dominion military forces put up a fierce resistance against the attacking Daleks, but the military forces on both Chin'toka II and III have been stripped of all the strongest military resources and sent to the front lines for the battles against the Federation.
It takes six weeks to totally eradicate the populations of both Chin'toka II and III, but even as the extermination of the population is going on, Dalek Engineer units are reconstructing the Cardassian industrial level replecators for large scale production of additional Daleks and in orbit the ship yards are being modified and expanded to build additional Dalek heavy cruisers and Dalek Mother Ships.
On Chin'toka II an area of land is being prepared for the 628 men, women and children as their new home to replace the one that was attacked and taken by the Cardassian/Dominion forces.
Several hundred soldier Daleks with orders to protect the colonists and will heavily guard this area of Chin’toka II. The leader of the colonist is very grateful to Professor Davros and for setting them up on this new colony (none of the colonist has any problems with the Daleks wiping out the Cardassian population, especially after the Cardassian/Dominion forces wiped out the population of Olack seven). The colonists will start a fresh on this new world protected by Professor Davros and his Daleks they will also receive weapons to defend themselves with (though they don’t really need them with the Daleks guarding them).
On DS9 the capture of the Chin'toka system has not gone unnoticed by Dukat or Weyoun but they both think that this is some sort of Federation trick to draw of their forces protecting the front line near DS9, as they are close to bringing down the minefield guarding the wormhole entrance.
Operation Return is the code name for the combined Starfleet and Klingon assault against Dominion and Cardassian forces in the Bajor sector, launched in late-2374. The objective of the mission was the recapture of starbase Deep Space 9, which had been captured in the opening battle of the war approximately five months previously.
Five days away from the planned launch of the offensive, alarming news arrived at Starbase 375 the Cardassians have finally devised a practical method of destroying the minefield. Based on information smuggled away from DS9 by resistance fighters Kira Nerys, Jake Sisko, and Quark operating aboard the station, and relayed by independent trader Morn, the allies discovered that an advanced antigraviton emitter was in the process of deactivating each mine individually. The process would be complete within three days, at which point Jem'Hadar reinforcements would be free to pass through the wormhole.
As the Starfleet force approached the Bajor System, some 627 starships strong, they are confronted by a massive formation of 1,254 enemy vessels, outnumbering the Federation fleet 2-1.
After a long a bloody battle the combined Federation and newly arrived Klingon forces managed to start to break through the Dominion and Cardassian warships lines and head towards DS9. But by the time the lead Federation ship (USS Defiant) has arrived, the minefield has been deactivated and the Dominion reinforcements are starting to come though the wormhole.
All the USS Defiant can do is beam of the resistance fighters of the now disabled DS9 and heads back to the now combined Federation/Klingon fleet at maximum warp speed.
By early 2375 the total numbers of Dalek forces are as follows:–
Dalek Warship types
Dalek Mother Ships (DMS), there are three Dalek Mother Ships currently operational (DMS 1 to 3), with another seven at various stages of construction and a further ten planned.
Dalek Heavy Cruisers (DHC), there are one hundred fifty Dalek heavy cruisers (DHC) operational, with another three hundred fifty under construction and a further five hundred planned.
Both the DMS and DHC are very heavily armed and shielded/armoured and they are very fast with a maximum continuous warp speed of warp 9.9 which they can maintain until fuel exhaustion, making these ships extremely formidable in combat. Most Dalek warships do not have their life support system switched on, as the Daleks do not need a life support system.
Both types of Dalek warships are fitted with two anti matter power cores along with a large number of back-up reactors giving a DHC four times the power output of a Federation Sovereign class heavy cruiser.
Only when Professor Davros (or one of the colonists) is onboard a Dalek warship is the life support system switched on. The power that would normally go to the life support systems is diverted to either the drive systems and/or combat systems giving the warship a much larger energy reserve than any other type of ship. Both of these types of Dalek warships can enter a planets atmosphere and can even land on a planets surface if needed.
There is one other class of “warship”, these are the orbital weapon platforms, these are being modified by replacing the three heavy disruptors with three heavy Dalek energy weapons these heavy Dalek energy weapons are much more powerful than the three heavy disruptors that are currently mounted on the orbital weapon platforms, they will also be fitted with their own power core rather that receiving power remotely (this is a weakness in the design). There are many thousands of these orbital weapon platforms surrounding Chin'toka II and III.
Supreme Daleks (Black), there are a total of twenty Supreme Daleks constructed so far, these Daleks primary function is as military commanders for large Dalek forces, all commands are usually placed through a Coordinator Dalek.
Commander Daleks (Black dome, with the rest gold), There are a total of two hundred of this class of Dalek, these Commander Daleks are use primarily to command the Dalek heavy cruisers, but can also be used to command ground forces for planetary assault in coordination with the Supreme Daleks via the Coordinator Daleks.
Coordinator Dalek (Red), there are a total of seven coordinator Daleks, one for each operational DMS, and two each for the two habitable worlds in the Chin'toka system. These immobile coordinator Daleks are plugged into the various computer and communication systems and coordinate all other Daleks under the orders of either Professor Davros or a Black Dalek, but is also capable of issuing its own orders if necessary.
Soldier Daleks (Gold), there are a total of five million soldier Daleks with more being constructed. The Soldier Daleks are the main ground forces and are used in either the security role or assault role, but they can if necessary do other roles.
Research Daleks (White), the numbers of research Daleks currently stand a fifty thousand. The Research Daleks primary role is assisting Professor Davros in his experiments with a secondary role of producing more powerful offensive and defensive systems for all classes of Daleks and Dalek warships. This model of Dalek is usually unarmed.
Engineer Daleks (Blue), there are a total of 750,000 Engineer Daleks and the numbers are growing. Engineer Daleks are responsible for maintaining all Dalek machinery and are in charge of building new Daleks and Dalek warships. The Engineer Daleks are also used to pilot the Dalek warships. This model of Dalek is also usually unarmed.
This formidable force is growing as the days, weeks and months go by, Professor Davros and his Daleks now have a secure base of operations and a growing production centre along with all the resources needed to rapidly expand.
To be continued.

Part 6 – Counterattack
After the arrival of the Dominion reinforcements from the Gamma quadrant both Dukat and Weyoun both agree (for once) that the Chin'toka system needs to be retaken before any further attacks can be launched against the Federation. Both Dukat and Weyoun still think that it is the Federation and the Klingons that has captured the Chin'toka system and they are both in for a big surprise.
A force of 700 mainly Dominion warships (made up from the recently arrived reinforcements from the Gamma quadrant) is sent to retake the Chin'toka system. On arriving at the edge of the Chin'toka system the Vorta in charge of the Dominion force is surprised to see no Federation warships on long-range sensors in the Chin'toka system and reports his finding back to Dominion headquarters.
Both Dukat and Weyoun on receiving the news that the Federation and the Klingons are not the ones who have captured the Chin'toka system are both surprised at this news, but still order the Dominion force to attack and retake the Chin'toka system.
On DMS1 the supreme Dalek orders that all Dalek warships to full alert and also orders the activation of the orbital weapons platforms. This action forms two lines of defence, the first line is the orbital weapons platforms, and the second line will be made up of Dalek warships (assuming any Dominion warships can get past the orbital weapons platforms that is!).
The first three waves of Dominion warships are either destroyed or badly damage by the orbital weapons platforms, the forth wave is a much larger force and uses weight of numbers to overwhelm the orbital weapons platforms by giving the platforms too many targets to engage at once. This forth wave makes is through the gauntlet of the first line of fire of the orbital weapons platforms, only to be engaged by the Daleks second line of defence the DHC’s, the firepower from the DHC’s is much more powerful than the orbital weapons platforms and the Dominion warships in the forth wave are all destroyed by the DHC’s.
With half of the original force of 700 warships either destroyed or badly damaged the Vorta in charge reports back the extent of the casualties taken by the Dominion force so far. Dukat and Weyoun then start arguing about what to do next, Dukat wants that attack to continue with all 350 remaining warships attacking at once, Weyoun wants to order additional reinforcements into the Chin'toka system before any attack recommences.
The female founder ends the argument by ordering the 350 remaining warships attacking at once, but also that additional reinforcement’s to the Chin'toka system just in case the 350 Dominion warships attack fails. The planned counterattack against the Federation is postponed until the Chin'toka system recaptured.
The 350 Dominion warships attacks at one point, the number of Dominion warships concentrate their fire against each orbital weapons platform, taking them out one at a time, but this strategy cost the attacking force nearly 100 warships. The remaining 250 Dominion warships then concentrate their attack on the DHC’s and a pitched battle follows.
Over the next hour or so the heavier shielding and firepower of the DHC over the Dominion warships begins to show as the Dominion warship numbers are whittled down, eighteen DHC are damaged to various degrees by Dominion warships making suicide runs against DHC, but the damaged DHC’s are able to avoid being destroyed by using their superior speed and manoeuvrability.
Most of the 350 Dominion warships that attacked have been destroyed and only 23 have survived and along with the remaining 32 Dominion warships from the previous attacks withdraw from the Chin'toka system. The Dominion fleet have been soundly defeated by the Dalek warships in their first major engagement. This first major space battle has taught the Daleks a lot about space combat tactics.
Further attacks against the Chin'toka system are postponed until additional reinforcements can be brought from the Gamma quadrant and this new enemy can be analysed from the Dominion warships that survived the battle of the Chin'toka system.
Near to the Chin'toka system there are several Cardassian outposts and space stations along what used to be the old Federation/Cardassian boarder, several detachments of DHC are sent along the boarder area to destroy these outposts and space stations as they could provide the Cardassian/Dominion early warning of any ship movements out of the Chin'toka system towards the surrounding Cardassian systems.
Over the next few weeks as more Dalek warships become available they are sent to the nearby Cardassian systems to conquer these systems and to expand the Daleks production capability. The Dalek fleets are usually made up of two DMS and 100 DHC, once this force has captured a system, this force than become the system defence force, then this force begins to secure the system and starts by building orbital weapons platforms, followed by planet based production facilities and last of all orbital shipyards.
Once this is done the Dalek fleet of the two DMS and 100 DHC becomes that systems defence fleet, while constructing additional Dalek fleets to conquer additional Cardassian systems. Some systems are simply sterilised of all life, as these systems are not deemed of any strategic value or on occasion a small force of DHC assigned to patrol certain systems that do not warrant a permanent Dalek presence. Using a system of leapfrogging from one system to another the Daleks soon have control of twenty-five percent of Cardassian space by the end of 2376 and are expanding rapidly as more production facilities come online.
In every major engagement between the Dalek forces and the Cardassian/Dominion forces the Cardassian/Dominion forces have been defeated. This has leads Dukat to order the orderly evacuation of several lightly populated systems near the frontline.
All attempts at communication by the Cardassians and Dominion towards this unknown enemy have been ignored, the Cardassians and Dominion later find out via spies in the Federation that this race is called Daleks and that the Federation knows as little about this race as the Cardassians and Dominion do and the only really useful information is that the Daleks a returning all Federation prisoners held in Cardassian prisons.
The Daleks have freed former Maquis and Federation prisoners from Cardassian and Dominion prisons and detention camps. Most of these freed prisoners have been returned to the Federation, the former Maquis prisoners have formed their own colony on Chin'toka II, these former Maquis prisoners do not yet know that the Daleks where crated by a former Federation scientist and assume that the Daleks are a new race, the same assumption is come to by the former Federation prisoners returning to Federation space.
The Federation on finding out that they have the same enemy as the Daleks try to make peaceful contact with the Dalek “race”. But all initial attempts at communication are rebuffed with the exception of informing the Federation that all captured Cardassian space now belongs to the Daleks and informing the Federation to keep out.
In early 2377 the Cardassian civilian population is now being evacuated through the wormhole to Dominion space as what was the Cardassian Union is being consumed by the Daleks, even Cardassia Prime has fallen to the Daleks (after a massive orbital bombardment) by mid 2377 and it is estimated by the end of 2377 all of the Cardassian Union will have fallen.
The now joint Federation, Klingon and Romulan fleet have spent the past few months launching a series of their own offensives against the Dominion/Cardassian front lines and have managed to recapture all their lost territory (all Federation) from the Dominion and Cardassian forces. On several worlds that they have recaptured they find that the Dominion and Cardassian occupation forces have used the most brutal methods to keep the local population in line.
By the end of January 2378 the Daleks have finished conquering the Cardassian Union. Through a massive logistics effort Dukat has managed to evacuate eighty percent of the civilian population (the rest have had to be abandoned to their fate “extermination”) through the wormhole and the remaining Cardassian and Dominion warships remaining in the Alpha quadrant are forming up near DS9 to try and make final stand against the Dalek fleet and a gathering Federation, Klingon and Romulan fleet.
The final battle of the Dominion war would take place around DS9.
To be continued.
Next – Part 7 – Wars End!

Part 7 – Wars End!
The final battle of the Dominion war will take place around the entrance to the wormhole and DS9. The forces that are assembled are as follows, Dominion and Cardassian warships totalling 5,223 (mostly Dominion warships), the joint Federation, Klingon and Romulan fleet consists of 1,972 warships (with more warships on their way) and the Dalek fleet consisting of 21 DMS and 2,500 DHC.
The joint Federation, Klingon and Romulan fleet will attack from Federation space towards DS9 and try to capture DS9, the Dalek fleet will drive from what was Cardassian space and try to capture the entrance of the wormhole and also may try to like up with the joint Federation, Klingon and Romulan fleet. Both the Federation and their allies will attack without any coordination with the Dalek fleet and likewise the Dalek fleet will attack with out coordinating with the joint Federation/Klingon/Romulan fleet.
The Dominion and Cardassian do slightly outnumber the Federation, Klingon and Romulan and Dalek fleets, but in firepower terms the presence of such a large Dalek fleet will eventually swing the battle in favour of the Federation and the Daleks. The Founders are determined to keep the fleet fighting as long as possible as the Domonion is trying to assemble a larger fleet on the other side of the wormhole to destroy any ships coming through the wormhole with concentrated fire from thousands of Dominion warships.
The battle starts with skirmishes by all sides trying to probe for weaknesses each the opposing side’s warship lines. This level of skirmishing lasts for several days and does not really achieve very much. The Federation, Klingon and Romulan is the first to try a large-scale assault of the Dominion and Cardassian warships facing them.
Both Dukat and Weyoun thought that the main attack would come from the Daleks and had positioned their most powerful warships on that front, and their weakest warships such as Cardassian Hideki class and Jem’Hadar fighters with very few larger warships available to support these ships, the only main asset is DS9 that can provide support to the Cardassian Hideki class and Jem’Hadar fighters engaging the Federation (and their allies) warships.
The Federation, Klingon and Romulan attack would take several hours to start to push the Dominion and Cardassian warships back towards DS9. When this starts to happen, the DHC started to move as one solid wall of ships leaving behind the DMS at the start point.
The DHC while maintaining formation, approach the Dominiona and Cardassian warships lines, as soon as the DHC are within weapons range the DHC at the front of the “wall of ships” open fire as if they are one ship with a deadly hail of weapons fire, as more DHC’s approach within weapons range they too open fire and the space between the two fleet is ablaze with weapons fire.
The DHC’s continue to approach the Dominion and Cardassian warships lines at a slow but steady pace and are soon at point blank range, the DHC’s start to pass between the Dominion and Cardassian warships allowing the DHC’s to catch many of the Dominion and Cardassian in a withering crossfire.
Many of the Dominion and Cardassian warships manage to manoeuvre out of the way of this attack, but several hundred Dominion and Cardassian warships are destroyed by the Dalek attack and no Dalek warships are destroyed by Dominion and Cardassian weapons fire, but several DHC receive various level of battle damage. This also has the effect in breaking up the Dominion and Cardassian warships and splitting their fire and combat formations.
The Founder onboard the Dominion flagship order all Dominion/Cardassian warships to retreat as fast as possible a reform a new line just outside of weapons range, once this is done all warships should concentrate their firepower on the closest Dalek warship this should buy some more time for the fleet, this tactic proves correct and several of the lead DNC’s are badly damaged and are forced to withdraw to the DMS position for repairs.
This has brought the Dominion and Cardassian leadership some time but not much, the Founder now orders that all Dominion and Cardassian warships facing the Federation, Klingon and Romulan combined fleet to disengage and are not to fire on these ships unless fired upon first.
Then the Founder orders a peace proposal to be sent to the Federation, Klingon and Romulan combined fleet for discussion for peace terms with the Dominion, the Federation agrees to the cease fire and to discuss terms for a peace treaty with the Dominion.
This will leave the Daleks alone in their fight against the remaining Dominion and Cardassian warships, to Dukat’s surprise (and Weyoun but he won’t admit this) the Founder also sends an almost similar message to the Dalek fleet informing the Daleks of the cease fire with the Federation and their allies and the Daleks will now face the Dominion alone and also offers a cease fire to the Daleks (though the Founder thinks that the Daleks will not accept this).
Once the message is sent the Dalek attacks stop almost immediately and the Dominion flagship is hailed by one of the DMS and a Black Supreme Dalek agrees to a ceasefire, the Founder is momentary taken aback by the appearance of the Supreme Dalek and the agreement, but quickly recovers and agrees to the cease fire proposal.
After some discussion it is agreed to hold the negations on DS9 as this is the nearest facility available for these talks. Though damaged during the battle DS9 still has fully functional life support system.
Once onboard DS9 the terms of the peace deal are quickly arrive at, the Cardassians will be the biggest losers in this deal, as the Cardassians don’t have much choice in the matter.
All parties will cease combat operations against each other, all territory formerly controlled by the Cardassian Union as defined by pre war boarder is ceded to the Dalek Empire.
A summary of the highlights of the treaty is as follows-
No ship from the Alpha quadrant will pass through the wormhole without permission from the Dominion first, and no ship from the Gamma quadrant will pass through the wormhole without permission from one of the Alpha quadrant powers (the exception being the Dominion and Cardassian Ambassadors vessels)
Ambassadors from all sides will have consulates on DS9 to maintain diplomatic relations. DS9 will by under the control of Bajoran government but operated by the Federation (Starfleet command) on their behalf.
On 31 March 2378 the treaty is signed by all powers and the Dominion war was now over.
This did have a very big benefit for Professor Davros and the Daleks it recognised them as a legitimate government and that the former Cardassian Union territories now belonging to the (newly formed) Dalek Empire.
The other reason why Professor Davros agreed to a peace deal is that not all of the former Cardassian Union space is secure, and the production of new Daleks and Dalek warships are still under construction and the fleet that was deployed against the Dominion and Cardassian fleet had to be taken from various system defence fleets.
All these negations are handled by one of the Black Supreme Daleks so no one still knows that the Daleks where created by Professor Davros. The other powers do know that there is a living creature inside the Dalek machine but due to jamming by each Dalek no more information can be gained, by using such races as Betazoids.
On 31 March 2378 the Dalek Empire is born.
In early 2379 the Daleks would encounter a new race, the Borg this would lead to some changes and upgrades within the Dalek Empire!
To be continued.
Next – Part 8 – Consolidation

Part 8 – Consolidation
Over the next eighteen months Professor Davros would concentrate his Daleks efforts into securing the Dalek Empires boarders. The number of Dalek production facilities under construction would finally come one line and Dalek warship numbers would increase dramatically allowing the Dalek Empire’s boarders to be finally secured. Along with upgrades to the Daleks and Dalek warships that have come from lessons learned in combat against the Dominion and Cardassian forces.
The Chin'toka II human colonists (former Maquis and the former Olack seven colonists) are both thriving. The former Olack seven colonists are more involved in helping Professor Davros secure the Dalek Empire than the former members of the Maquis, as the Olack seven people are trusted more by Professor Davros than the Maquis are at this time.
The former Olack seven colonists also travel on Dalek warships from system to system in helping and advising with the construction of the Dalek Empire (even though this is not really necessary Professor Davros allows this to happen). The former Olack seven colonists are also allowed to carry weapons, something the former Maquis are not allowed.
The Maquis see it as the former Olack seven colonists have done something special to earn this level of trust from the Daleks and they are also trying very hard to earn the same level of trust from the Daleks, but so far no luck, but they won’t give up on earning the Daleks trust.
On DS9 everything is going well and the Black Supreme Dalek assigned to DS9 has managed to get several non-aggression packs with several races including the Gorn, Tholoians and the Breen to name but a few, and is making headway with several other races. All attempts by several races to negotiate any sort of trade or cultural deals with the Daleks have met with failure.
The Daleks even have an ambassador on Earth, which Professor Davros finds very amusing. The Black Supreme Dalek ambassador to Earth is even allowed to attend Federation council meetings as an observer. The Black Supreme Dalek ambassador has a DMS in Earth orbit.
In early 2379 a single Borg cube was detected be one of Starfleet commands long range probes heading into the Alpha quadrant on a course straight for Earth. A task force under Admiral Hayes is being assembled to intercept the Borg cube and try to destroy it.
Once Admiral Hayes task force intercepts and engages the Borg cube in a series of running battles to Earth. The USS Enterprise under the command of Captain Picard listens to the battle and then decides to disobey orders and more the Enterprise to the battle area near the edge of Earth solar system.
Just as the Enterprise arrives, the Borg cube destroys Admiral Hayes flagship, Captain Picard assumes command of the remains of Admiral Hayes task force and continues the attack on the Borg cube.
While the is going on the DMS in Earths orbit has been monitoring the situation and on orders from Professor Davros, the Black Supreme Dalek ambassador to Earth offers to engage the Borg with his warship if the Federation council agrees. The Federation council has been trying to think of a way to ask for Dalek assistance, but now that the Daleks have offered, this problem has been solved. The Federation council aggress to the Daleks offer of assistance.
The Black Supreme Dalek ambassador travels back to his DMS and powers up the ships shields and weapon systems. The DMS breaks Earth orbit and moves to intercept the Borg cube, the Black Supreme Dalek orders that the Borg cube be hailed and warned that the Borg cube must withdraw or be destroyed. The Borg responds with the following message "We are the Borg, lower your shields and surrender you ship. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile."
The Black Supreme Dalek responds saying “Borg, you are now the enemy of the Daleks, you will be exterminated”
While this is going on Captain Picard orders the remaining Starfleet vessels to concentrate their fire on one point on the Borg cube, Data informs the captain that the target does not appear to be a vital system, but Picard assures the android that he knows what he is doing.
Captain Picard stands in front of the view screen and watches as the battle rages on, then orders weapons to "Fire." Orange beams of phaser fire and powerful photon torpedoes slice into the Borg cube, targeting a single location. Instantly green fire explodes from within the cube and the entire vessel is engulfed in a sickly fireball. As the ship breaks apart, a circular airlock opens and a small, spherical vessel emerges, escaping the destruction of the mother ship.
This Borg spherical vessel is heading straight towards the DMS at maximum sub light speed, the DMS opens fire with all its weapons that the DMS can bring to bare on the Borg Sphere, Dalek energy beam and torpedoes rip into the Borg Sphere, the Borg Sphere is able to withstand the DMS fire for only a few seconds before being destroyed by the DMS fire.
The Borg attack on the Federation has been defeated with help from the Daleks.
One on the main reasons the Professor Davros ordered the attack on the Borg was to gain technological knowledge from the Borg vessels debris. One of the main discoveries is badly damaged transwarp coil from the Borg cube, though this transwarp coil is non-functional it does give the Engineers and Research Daleks along with Professor Davros ideas and technological information gained from both the Dominion and Cardassian Unions data bases (information that is not available to the Federation).
It is estimated by the Engineer and Research Daleks reporting to Professor Davros and several Supreme Daleks that they could produce their own version of a transwarp drive systems within ten years, Professor Davros orders that this work be give top priority.
The other reason is to get hold of Borg nanoprobes, to use this Borg technology to better improve each Daleks ability to defend themselves against any form of biological attack (that might get through the Dalek machine “skin”) and even defend themselves against Borg assimilation nanoprobes using their own nanoprobes to defeat the Borg nanoprobes.
To further keep the Federation at arms length Professor Davros orders the Supreme Dalek ambassador arrange an exchange, in that a Commander Dalek along with several different types of Daleks to server onboard a Federation starship the Enterprise to “learn” about the Federation.
The Federation council agrees to this and Captain Picard is informed that a contingent of Daleks will be serving onboard the Enterprise for several years. Captain Picard always the ambassador is happy to help in improving relations between the to Alpha quadrant powers.
The next few years will prove to be very interesting for the USS Enterprise and her crew.
To be continued.
Next – Part 9 – Observation
August 3rd, 2007, 04:52 PM
Part 9 – Observation
The Dalek contingent consists of one Commander Dalek, ten Soldier Daleks, ten Engineers and Research Daleks that will be “serving” onboard the Enterprise. Withi the Enterprises main shuttle bay will house two Dalek shuttlecraft, as the Daleks onboard the Enterprise will not be using the Enterprises transporters, as the transporters will do a bio scan each time anyone is transported (that is not allowed).
The first few weeks are spent with both the Federation and Dalek crews getting used to each other, the ability of the Daleks to directly interface with the Enterprise computers is slightly worrying for Captain Picard, but with several security safeguards in place this is not considered a major threat.
The Daleks crew quarters have no furniture of any kind, and the Daleks to not need sleep the Daleks have no real need for quarters, but are assigned quarters as a courtesy. The Commander Dalek is placed as fourth officer behind Lieutenant Commander Data and “commands” the newly established fourth watch on the Enterprise.
By mid 2379, the mixed crew of the Enterprise has settled into a routine and the Daleks have fully integrated into the Enterprises crew and are proving to be very useful part of the Enterprises crew.
Romulan Empire, Romulus
The Romulan Senate is hearing a proposal from Commander Suran. He is proposing that the Senate ally with the Remans, saying that Shinzon of Remus has offered a unique proposal and that it would be madness to oppose it. Suran believes with the Reman forces working with them, that the Federation would not be able to stand in their way.
Unfortunately their proposal falls on deaf ears, as the Praetor silences him, telling him that the military does not dictate policy on Romulus and that Shinzon and his followers will be met with force and sent back to "that black rock they came from!" Seeing that the Praetor has made himself clear, Suran and his aide leave.
Then Senator Tal'aura stand and excuses herself, telling the Praetor she is to meet with the Tholian ambassador and the Praetor gives her permission to leave. Just before the Senate can begin discussions about trade relations with Celes II, but before the Praetor can get deeply into the subject, a small container opens, spreading greenish particles throughout the room. The Praetor calls for security and for Tal'aura to return, but it is too late the senators start decaying and they all fall to the ground and break apart like clumps of dirt, leaving dust behind...
While patrolling the Neutral Zone, Lieutenant Commander Worf has detected a signal coming from the Kolarus system, a positronic signature. La Forge narrows it down to the third planet in the system. Data speculates that as this signature has only been transmitted so far by androids created by Dr. Noonien Soong, Data's creator, Picard decides to set course for the planet. Riker orders the ship to the Kolaran system and La Forge wonders if Data is about to discover a long-lost relative.
The Enterprise enters orbit of Kolarus IV orbit, there are six separate pieces being detected. La Forge recommends that they not use the transporter as there is an ion storm nearby and there's always a chance that it could come their way. With that in mind, Picard tells Worf and Data to go with him. Riker tries to tell Picard that it's his job to go down and not Picard's, but Picard invokes Captain's prerogative, especially as Picard has wanted to try out the Argo.
Once the shuttle leaves the Enterprise, the Commander Dalek suggests that a second shuttle should be sent to follow the Captains shuttle as backup and also points out that the Captain had not ordered that no one follow him. Riker looks at the Commander Dalek and says “take a shuttle and provide back-up to the Captain as you see fit” the Commander Dalek replies “I obey”. Within a few minutes one of the Dalek shuttlecraft departs the Enterprises main shuttle bay.
The landing party takes the buggy out and Picard drives it quickly around the local area and the team find pieces of an android lying about, although the android is completely disassembled, its various pieces, including the head are still active as an arm reaches out an grabs Worf by the foot, startling him and the head speaks to Data. However just as they find the final piece they come under attack from Kolaran natives in vehicles of their own and so Picard races the Argo back to the shuttle while Worf mans the phaser cannon to return fire at the Kolarans.
As the Argo nears the shuttlecraft they notice that the Kolaran natives are approaching the shuttlecraft in an attempt to cut of their escape route. As data is about to activate the shuttlecrafts remote control the Dalek shuttlecraft roars overhead, taking fire from the Kolaran natives vehicle mounted weapons, the Dalek shuttlecrafts shields easily absorb the fire and returns fire clearing a path for the Argo to make it back to the shuttlecraft and return to the Enterprise, leaving behind a scene of devastation.
Enterprise, Kolarus IV orbit
Crusher looks at the new android's head and decides that Data has nicer eyes even though, as Data does point out, their eyes are identical. La Forge's scans reveal that the android is likely a prototype built by Dr. Soong as the android has the same physical makeup as Data but not nearly as much development in neural pathways. Data asks the head what its name is and the head refers to himself as B-4.
Picard notes that Soong's penchant for whimsical names continues. Data asks if B-4 knows how he got to the planet or knows anything about his life prior to that, but B-4 knows nothing. Picard tells La Forge to reassemble him. Data asks if B-4 knows him and the B-4 tells Data "You are me." Data corrects him and tells B-4 that his name is Data and that he is B-4's brother.
The following is an excerpt of a conversation between one of the one of the Research Daleks and B-4.
B4: “Why are you shaped like that?”
RD: “I am a Dalek”
B4: “What is a Dalek?”
RD: “That is our race name”
RD: “All races have race names”
B4: “What is my race name?”
RD: “Android, you are the same race as Lieutenant Commander Data your “brother””
Data, interrupts and says, “That is enough B4”
Data: “Because I asked you to be silent”
With that Data switch’s B4 off for the time being.
In his ready room, Picard receives a message from Starfleet Command and when the signal comes through, he's pleased to see Vice-Admiral Janeway on the screen. Janeway asks Picard if he'd like a trip to Romulus, and Picard has to ask if he'll be going with or without the rest of the fleet, but Janeway assures him this is a diplomatic mission and believe it or not, they were invited.
The new Praetor, a man called Shinzon, wants to discuss peace with a Federation envoy. Janeway informs him that the new Praetor is Reman, which startles Picard and Janeway tells him they don't understand it either. Since Enterprise is the closest ship, Janeway wants Picard to go and see what's happening because an unstable Romulan Empire could cause trouble for the entire quadrant. Janeway also tells Picard they're sending all their intelligence but there's not much to go on and she tells Picard to be careful.
On arriving in orbit over Romulus the Enterprise is made to wait seventeen hours, just then a ship de-cloaks in front of them, loaded with weapons, clearly a predator. Then the warship hails them. A Reman comes on the screen and identifies their ship as the Reman Warbird Scimitar. Picard, thinking this is Shinzon, begins to address him, but the Reman tells them he is not Shinzon, but that his is Shinzon's Viceroy, and he relays transport coordinates to the Enterprise and cuts off communications. The senior staff head for the transporter room to beam over to Scimitar, with the exception of the Commander Dalek who will remain on the bridge.
They beam over to Scimitar and find themselves in a darkened room. The man, Shinzon, finally walks into view although his face is still hidden by the darkness offering peace between the Romulan Empire and the Federation and the dismantling of the Neutral Zone.
When Picard confirms it, Shinzon raises the light level in the room, which causes the Viceroy to step back into the shadows. No one but Picard recognizes who Shinzon appears to be. Shinzon looks just as Picard did in his early 20's. They are of the same flesh the same blood the same person. He pulls out a knife, cuts his hand, and gives the blood stained blade to Data, knowing they'll want to scan it. He bids them farewell, returns the light back to the previous levels and he and the Viceroy leave the room and the away team beams back up to Enterprise.
In sickbay, Beverly examines the bloodstain in the computer and tells Picard that right down to his aggressive strain of Shalaft's Syndrome, Shinzon is a clone of Picard. Riker wonders why the Romulans would clone Picard and he tells Riker that he intends to find out. The Commander Dalek does not like the idea of another Picard and states that this could be a deception by the Romulans. To gain information about the Federation and recommends that a Solider Dalek be assigned as bodyguard to Captain Picard, Captain Picard rejects this idea.
Later, onboard the Enterprise, Worf reports an unauthorized access of the ship's computer and La Forge is working on locating the source. But what he finds strange is that no restricted material was accessed just basic stellar cartography and colony tracking station uplinks. Picard says that they must still find the source of the break-in.
On the bridge of Scimitar, Shinzon orders B-4 beamed aboard and the Remans tap into him and begin a download of the files that he accessed from Enterprise, meanwhile Shinzon orders a cup of hot tea.
Picard is beamed away before Riker can order the shields up. Just then, the Scimitar cloaks and moves away from Enterprise. On Scimitar B-4 enters and tells the Reman guard that Shinzon wants the prisoner. As the guard releases Picard, B-4, actually Data posing as B-4, gives the Reman a Vulcan nerve pinch to incapacitate him. Both Picard and Data manage to escape from the Scimitar and the Enterprise heads back to Federation space at maximum warp.
Looking at the Commander Dalek Picard says that the Dalek was right and he was wrong and apologises, the Commander Dalek says that an apology is not necessary and a Solider Dalek will be assigned as bodyguard until the Enterprise is back in Federation space.
Later, aboard the Enterprise, Beverly explains that Shinzon is dying from genetic degeneration because he was created with a temporal RNA sequence, which would allow him to skip thirty years of his life in order to reach Picard's actual age more quickly. But since that wasn't activated, his body is beginning to break down and the only thing that will save him is a complete blood transfusion from Picard, which would kill him. Beverly doesn't know how long it will take for Shinzon to die, but that the effect is accelerating. With this information at hand, Picard realizes that Shinzon will come for him and orders the Enterprise from Red Alert to Battle Stations.
As the Enterprise begins passing through the rift, their connection to Starfleet Cartography is interrupted and Data explains that all long-range communication will be affected and as he does, both he and Picard realize that is what Shinzon has been waiting for. Picard orders Riker to take evasive manoeuvres, but it is too late as Shinzon has begun firing at them. Shinzon orders his gunner to only target weapons and shields and that he doesn't want Enterprise destroyed.
With warp drive disabled and communications cut the Enterprise is alone against the Scimitar for the time being.
To be continued.

Part 10 – Battle Zone and Extermination
The battle between the Scimitar and the Enterprise is initially a one sided affare until the arrival of two Romulan warbirds, who are here to help the Enterprise fight the Scimitar (much to Captain Picard’s amazement). The three warships now start to engage the Scimitar and coordinate their fire to improve their chances of disabling or even destroying the Scimitar.
During the course of the battle both Romulan warbirds are disabled by the Scimitar, Troi is using the same trick the Viceroy did earlier to get Shinzon in her mind. She is locating the Viceroy through her mind and at the same time, guiding Worf's hand to precisely locate the Scimitar. After a few moments, she locks onto the Viceroy, tells him to "Remember me!" And at that point, she tells Worf "now!" and Worf fires all the Enterprises stock of quantum torpedoes toward the Scimitar in rapid succession, disabling the cloak and then Enterprise makes a strafing run over and continues to fire phasers.
While all this is happening, at the rendezvoused point the Starfleet task force is joined by three DHC’s as part of and assistance package sent by Professor Davros. The lead Commander Dalek asks the Admiral in charge of the Starfleet task force why the Enterprise has not arrive yet, the Admiral in charge states that he does not know, the Commander Dalek replies that the DHC are going to enter Romulan space and investigate the rift much to the announce of the Starfleet Admiral.
The three DHC’s head towards the rift at maximum warp, they should arrive within an hour or so, with shields raised and weapons charged for battle.
At this point Shinzon orders the Viceroy to prepare a boarding party and to go get Picard. Shinzon orders full disruptors on one specific point on the shields and it is enough to temporally disable the Enterprise's shields and the Reman boarding party beams onto the Enterprise. Riker and Worf lead a team to confront the intruders.
With Riker leading the team to confront the boarders, Data becomes first officer and the Commander Dalek becomes second officer on the Enterprises’ bridge.
The Reman boarding party runs into two soldier Daleks on patrol and try to shoot their way past the Daleks only to loose half their numbers and are forced to retreat with the Daleks in pursuit, unfortunately the Reman’s retreat leads them into Riker and Worf lead their security team that is hunting for the Reman’s and the Reman’s get cut to pieces in the cross fire between the to forces.
Just then the Scimitar fires hitting the bridge, destroying the view screen and blowing the helmsman is sucked out into space. Before anyone else can be sucked out, the emergency force fields are put in place. Picard calls for medical teams as Troi races down to take the helm position. Data reports that they have exhausted their torpedo complement and phasers are down to four percent.
Picard considers targeting all phasers in one spot, but with Scimitar's shields still at seventy percent, La Forge tells him it would make no difference. Scimitar pulls into position so they can see it right through the hole in the bridge where the view screen used to be. Troi wonders what Shinzon is doing. Picard realizes that Shinzon is trying to look him in the eye and thinking he knows what Picard will do, makes Picard realize they have a chance to get him. Picard tells La Forge to divert all power to engines and has Troi standing by.
Picard types an order to Troi to prepare to engage the engines at full impulse on his command he tells Troi to "engage" and orders all hands to brace for impact. Troi takes Enterprise to maximum impulse on a direct collision course with Scimitar. Shinzon notices what Picard is doing and orders evasive action, but unfortunately it's not in time and the Enterprise collides with Scimitar, which throws everyone about and destroys the Scimitar's hangar deck and several other decks as well.
On Scimitar Shinzon orders full reverse on the engine that separates the ships and destroys several decks, leaving part of Enterprise's saucer section in the Scimitar. With both ships separated and all options gone at that point, Picard orders autodestruct sequence omega. Unfortunately, the autodestruct is off-line. On the Scimitar Shinzon is told their disruptors are off-line and so Shinzon orders the weapon deployed and then afterward they are to set course for Earth and complete their mission. As the thalaron matrix begins to activate, Shinzon says that there are some ideals worth dying for.
The activation is noticed on Enterprise. When Picard asks how long they have, La Forge says the sequence should take about seven minutes and then the thalaron radiation will be relayed to the firing points and no one on Enterprise will survive. Picard picks up a phaser rifle and orders La Forge to prepare for a site-to-site transport, at this point the Commander Dalek suddenly says, “Alert, Alert Dalek communications signals have been detected in the rift.”
La Forge confirms that there are three DHC’s approaching their position, the Commander Dalek says “Establishing communications with lead Dalek warship” and out of nowhere a display appears were the Enterprises main view screen once was, La Forge thinks that it is some sort of holo display, but without any visible projections from the Commander Dalek.
The Commander Dalek in charge of the three DHC’s is informed of the situation and orders that the Scimitar be destroyed before the Scimitar’s weapon can fire. All three DHC’s open fire with very weapon that can be brought to bear and after a short but deadly barrage the Scimitar is destroyed, much to the relief of the Enterprises crew.
The three DHC’s tractor the Enterprise and the two Romulan warbirds clear of the rift so that they can communicate with their respective governments. The Romulan government is grateful that the Reman threat has been eliminated and informs the Dalek and Federation governments that the Reman’s throughout the Romulan Empire are being collected up and sent back to Remus.
The Daleks have been gathering additional warships along the Romulan boarder. They now number three hundred DHC’s and twelve DMS’s in one large formation. These Dalek warships move into Romulan space with only one transmission to the newly formed provisional Romulan government “keep out of our way, or be exterminated”. Much to the annoyance of the Romulan fleet commanders the provisional Romulan government orders the Romulan fleet to keep out of the way of the Dalek fleet, as the provisional Romulan government seems to have an idea of what the Daleks are up to.
The Dalek fleet arrives in orbit around Remus, half of the three hundred DHC enter the Remus atmosphere and disembark one hundred fifty thousand Soldier Daleks, while still above the surface of Remus the Soldier Daleks begin to exterminate any Reman on the surface, while avoiding killing any Romulans.
Once all the surface targets are eliminated the soldier Daleks precede to the Reman underground facilities (work camps) and begin to eliminate the Reman race in their underground work areas and homes. The extermination of the Reman population will take several months with extra Daleks being dispatch from the orbiting warships as needed. The Romulan government is grateful that the Remans are being eliminated and that they do not have to get there hands dirty doing the job themselves.
The Federation on hearing about this massacre (genocide) sends formal objections to both the Dalek and Romulan governments, but both governments ignore these protests. This leads the Dalek and Romulan governments to form a mutual defence and non-aggression packs with each other for mutual defence and the exchange of ambassadors.
The Federation does little else but protest a lot about this act of genocide but stops short of any direct action against either the Dalek or Romulan governments (the Federation does not want another war!). The greatest advocate to allow the Dalek or Romulan governments to deal with their own affairs comes from Captain Picard this action surprises many of the Federation council members.
Captain Picard’s action and his “support” of the Dalek actions and simply turning a blind eye, wins a lot of support from the Klingon Empire and within the Romulan Empire and even within certain parts of Starfleet Command. Even though this behaviour goes against Captain Picard’s “normal” behaviour, the attempt by the Reman’s to wipe out the population of Earth has temporally changed Captain Picard’s view in this matter and that of the Federation.
Even if the Federation wanted to do something there is not much that the Federation could do as the prime directive would apply, as this is an internal matter within the Romulan Empire and the Dalek Empire and as neither governments are members of the Federation. The only “action” that the Federation could take is to declare war and no one in the Federation wants another war.
The Daleks onboard the Enterprise will remain at Captain Picard’s suggestion so that the crew exchange can continue. Soon there will be Starfleet officers serving onboard a Dalek warship, but this will be interrupted by problems within the Federation.
To be continued.

Part 11 – The Dalek Empire (or everything you wanted to know about Daleks but where afraid to ask!)
Professor Davros is nominally the “leader” of the Dalek Empire as all Daleks are programmed to obey Professor Davros, but Professor Davros does not involve himself in the day to day running of the Empire and prefers to leave the running to the Daleks. Professor Davros prefers to concentrate on his research and not in the running of an Empire.
The Daleks maintain the boarders of the Empire and all diplomatic relations with the other races/powers in the Alpha and part of the Beta quadrants.
By 2380 the numbers of Dalek forces and capabilities are as follows:–
Dalek Warship types
Both types of Dalek warships are produced in a form of modular type of construction, this makes the warships very quick to produce and also make then structurally strong and very easy to modify and upgrade.
Dalek Mother Ships (DMS), there are currently over two hundred Dalek Mother Ships operational, with other DMS’s being constructed as needed. The DMS is a cross between a command ship and a mobile research laboratory, and also has a role as a mobile battle station in essence the DMS is a very multi role warship. Like all Dalek ships the DMS can enter a planets atmosphere and can even land on a planets surface if needed.
One DMS is permanently assigning to Professor Davros as his flagship and is quipped with a laboratory and whatever else is required along with a strong escort group of DHC’s.
Dalek Heavy Cruisers (DHC), there are currently eight thousand Dalek heavy cruisers (DHC) operational, with more under construction. These warships provide that backbone of the Dalek fleet and are used in many roles and are adopted as needed for any kind of specialist roles.
Both the DMS and DHC are very heavily armed and shielded/armoured and they are very fast with a maximum continuous warp speed of warp 9.9 which they can maintain until fuel exhaustion, making these ships extremely formidable in combat. Most Dalek warships do not have their life support system switched on, as the Daleks do not need a life support system.
All Dalek ships are equipped with transporter systems that can beam Daleks over twice the distance of Federation transporters. Individual Daleks are fitted with signal boosters to help their transporter system get a solid lock on to them.
Both types of Dalek warships are fitted with two anti matter power cores along with a large number of back-up reactors giving a DHC four times the power output of a Federation Sovereign class heavy cruiser.
Only when Professor Davros or one or more of the Olack seven colonists is onboard a Dalek warship is the life support system switched on. The power that would normally go to the life support systems is diverted to either the drive systems and/or combat systems giving the warship a much larger energy reserve than any other type of warship.
The Dalek warships are also continually being updated with improved systems.
Orbital Weapons Platforms
There is one other class of “warship” this is the orbital weapon platforms, these are fitted with three heavy Dalek energy weapons and carry one thousand plasma torpedoes and have regenerative shields, they are also fitted with their own power core. There are tens of thousands of these orbital weapon platforms surrounding all occupied Dalek planets and systems with in the Dalek Empire.
General design and layout of a Dalek
Externally, Daleks resemble human-sized salt or pepper shakers around five to six feet (152 to 183 cm) tall (depending on type of Dalek), with a single mechanical eyestalk mounted on a rotating dome, a gunstalk containing a Dalek energy weapon (this weapon is equivalent to a Federation type four phaser cannon at maximum output, this is a hybrid weapon of Federation, Dominion and Cardassian weapons technology), and a telescopic manipulator arm.
In most cases, the manipulator resembles a sink plunger, but Daleks can be equipped with arms that end in a tray, a mechanical claw, or other specialised equipment like flamethrowers and cutting devices etc. Daleks have used their plunger-like manipulator arms to interface with technology crush a man's skull measure the intelligence of a subject and extract the brainwaves from a man's head.
A Daleks outer casing is made of a bonded polycarbide type of armour this is a type of armour similar to Federation ablative armour, but can achieve much better defensive capabilities with much thinner armour shell than the Federation would need to use, along with their own personnel regenerative shields, giving each Dalek considerable protection against attack. Several regenerative power cells power the Dalek.
The lower half of a Dalek's shell is covered with protrusions "Dalek bumps" which are hemispherical on each side, these are sense globes that give the Dalek a 360 degree continues sensor reading and does not allow anyone to sneak up on a Dalek.
The genetically engineered Dalek creature is connected to the positronic brain of the Dalek machine by means of grafting the tissue directly onto the positronic brain. Each Dalek has built in communications capability, but rather than being the short range communicator of the type that other races posses, these communicators have the range to communicate within a system.
Supreme Daleks (Black), these Daleks primary function is as military commanders for large Dalek forces, all commands are usually placed through a Coordinator Dalek. The Supreme Daleks also have a role as ambassadors to various governments. When the Supreme Daleks are in their ambassador role they always travel in a fully equipped DMS.
Coordinator Dalek (Red), there is one for each operational DMS, and two based on each world that is under Dalek control (though there are no sentient life forms on these worlds just Dalek production facilities). These immobile coordinator Daleks are plugged into the various computer and communication systems and coordinate all other Daleks under the orders of either Professor Davros or a Black Dalek, but is also capable of issuing its own orders independently if necessary. This type of Dalek cannot be armed and there are always several Soldier Daleks assigned as bodyguards.
Commander Daleks (Black dome, with the rest gold coloured), these Commander Daleks are use primarily to command the Dalek heavy cruisers, but can also be used to command and coordinate ground forces for planetary assault. If a large force is involved then the Commander Daleks would carry out the attack in coordination with the Supreme Daleks via the Coordinator Daleks.
Soldier Daleks (Gold), the Soldier Daleks are the main ground forces and are used in either the security role or assault role, but they can if necessary do other roles. This class of Dalek is the most numerous within the Dalek Empire. The soldier Daleks number in the tens of millions and their numbers are still growing, but at much slower pace at the moment.
Research Daleks (White), The Research Daleks primary role is assisting Professor Davros in his experiments with a secondary role of producing more powerful system for all classes of Daleks and Dalek warships. This model of Dalek is usually unarmed, but can be armed if necessary (all Research Daleks onboard the either Dalek warships or the Enterprise are armed).
Engineer Daleks (Blue), Engineer Daleks are responsible for maintaining all Dalek machinery and are in charge of building new Daleks and Dalek warships. The Engineer Daleks are also used to pilot the Dalek warships and shuttlecraft. This model of Dalek is also usually unarmed, but can be armed if necessary (all Engineer Daleks onboard the either Dalek warships or the Enterprise are armed).
Both the Engineer and Research Daleks number in the millions these two classes of Daleks are the second most numerous of all the Dalek types.
Special Weapons Dalek (SWD)
There is one type of Dalek that is currently not in active service or production, this is the Special Weapons Dalek (SWD) sometimes referred to as the Heavy Weapons Dalek (HWD). Unlike a conventional Dalek, the SWD has no manipulator arm or eyestalk. Instead, it has an enormous energy cannon mounted on the front of the armoured and shielded casing in place of the usual small gunstalk and several sensor squares around the dome in place of the usual eyestalk. A SWD’s do have massive firepower this is up to twenty-five times more powerful than a blast from a regular Dalek weapon at its maximum setting.
Dalek Systems and Worlds
There is only one system that is currently populated by non-Daleks, this is the Chin'toka system with the planet Chin'toka II being inhabited by the former colonists of Olack seven, they have their own colony on one of the continents of Chin'toka II and on another continent there are the former members of the Maquis.
The Olack seven colonists now number 712 their colony is growing at a steady rate. The Olack seven colonists are they only people to know the true origins of the Daleks and are keeping Professor Davros secrete. The Olack seven colonists are also the only non-Daleks allowed to carry weapons on Chin'toka II (or anywhere else within the Dalek Empire), though they very rarely do carry weapons.
The former Maquis now number 6,221 and their colony is also growing at a steady rate. The former Maquis have built themselves (with Dalek help) a very solid colony and the colonists can ask the Daleks for anything except weapons. The Maquis colonists are trying very hard to earn the trust of the Daleks, but so far they don’t seem to be making any headway or gaining weapons.
The Maquis colonists have tried to find out from the “Olack seven” colonists on the other continent why they are allowed to carry weapons, but the only answer they get is to ask the Daleks and the Daleks won’t answer that question. The former Maquis are free to leave Chin'toka II anytime they wish, but none of the Maquis has exercised that right.
Both sets of colonists have the finest housing, healthcare etc of even the most advanced Federation colonies would be had pressed to provide and the Federation could not provide the standards of support that the former Olack seven colonists and Maquis have.
What the former Maquis do not know is that Professor Davros has ordered the Daleks not to give the former Maquis access to weapons or reveal that the Daleks where created by Professor Davros to maintain the illusion as long as possible.
All the other systems that are occupied by the Daleks are used as manufacturing and research bases to produce more Daleks and Dalek warships as well as Orbital Weapons Platforms.
At the moment the Dalek production facilities are just ticking over and are nowhere near full production capacity. Production can be brought up to full capacity within a few days at the most.
Soon though Professor Davros will reveal all, and then all hell will break loose within the Federation.

Part 12 – Revelations/Opportunities
In the aftermath of the Reman incident there are a few changes within Starfleet command these include Captain Picard being promoted to Commodore while still retaining command of the Enterprise, Commander Riker is promoted to Captain and given command of the Sovereign class USS Titan, Lieutenant-Commander Data is promoted to Commander and made the Enterprises first officer and finally Lieutenant-Commander La Forge is promoted to Commander. The Commander Dalek is moved from fourth officer to third in command behind Commander Data.
Earth, six months after the Reman incident, the Supreme Dalek ambassador to the Federation under orders from Professor Davros informs the Federation council that the leader of the Dalek Empire will be making a visit to Earth. This announcement catches the President of the Federation by surprise as it had been assumed that the Supreme Daleks ruled the Dalek Empire.
The leader of the Dalek Empire will arrive within thirty days.
Chin'toka II, at the same time that the Supreme Dalek ambassador to the Federation is making the announcement about the impending visit of the leader of the Dalek Empire to Earth. Professor Davros is informing the former Maquis of the true origins of the Daleks and why they have been kept “out of the loop” the leader of the Maquis colonists a certain Tom Riker is stunned by this announcement, but recovers quickly and while not fully agreeing with Professor Davros’s reasons of keeping this information secret does understand why this needed to be done.
The Maquis colonists are also informed that the Olack seven colonists knew about this and that was the reason why the Maquis colonists are allowed to carry weapons. But now that the Maquis know the, Maquis will be allowed to carry weapons as well.
Thirty days later, Earth, 27th February 2380, Starfleet headquarters, San Francisco. The President of the United Federation of Planets is waiting on the arrival of the leader of Dalek Empire. In Earth orbit DMS1 (along with twelve DHC as escort) with Professor Davros onboard along with the leader of the former Olack seven colonists Mark Jenson and the leader of the former Maquis Tom Riker, onboard a Dalek shuttlecraft for the journey to Starfleet headquarters, all three of them are trying very hard not to laugh at the situation.
Professor Davros shuttlecraft departs DMS1 along with four other Dalek shuttlecraft each containing thirty Soldier Daleks as bodyguards (just in-case things turn nasty). These four escort shuttlecraft unload their Soldier Daleks first as a “guard of honour”, then Professor Davros’s shuttlecraft lands and the shuttlecrafts door opens and out steps Professor Davros (with a very large smile on his face) flanked by Tom Riker and Mark Jenson at this point you could of heard a pin drop.
For what seemed like a long time before the President of the United Federation of Planets eventually recovers and greets the leader of the Dalek Empire and then the formal ceremonies would begin, these would last several hours, before the parties would adjourn to the Federation council chambers for a more formal meeting and then the shouting would begin!
The first words out of the President of the United Federation of Planets are that the Daleks should be dismantled and that Professor Davros will be placed under arrest, but no sooner had the President finished saying this than the Black Supreme Dalek behind Professor Davros says, “This is not allowed, any attempt to dismantle the Daleks and you will be exterminated”. This comment, by the Supreme Dalek, takes the Federation President aback a bit but continues to push Professor Davros to order his Daleks to stand down, without replying directly to the Supreme Dalek.
Professor Davros leans forward towards the Federation President and points out that the Federation President should have answered the Supreme Dalek by directing his question directly to the Supreme Dalek and not by asking Professor Davros. Also Professor Davros says that is the one order he cannot give to his Daleks and even if he could give that order he would not and the Federation is going to have to accept the fact that the Daleks are a new civilization or become the enemy of the Daleks and we all know what happens to the enemies of the Daleks, extermination.
The President of the United Federation of Planets goes very pale (after verbally digging himself into a hole), on hearing Professor Davros threat. The President says that it will be up to the Federation council to decide, to which Professor Davros points out that the Federation council has already recognised the Dalek Empire as a legitimate government and has formal diplomatic relations and even a non-aggression pact and according to the Federation charter this would require a two thirds majority of the Federation council to change this decision and Professor Davros doubts that the President would be able to get the numbers required.
This would also mean war with not only the Dalek Empire but also the Romulan Empire and the Federation council defiantly would not go for that idea so soon after the Dominion war. So trapped the President of the United Federation of Planets does put the idea to the vote but losses and the President of the United Federation of Planets is unable to get more that fifty percent of the Federation council members to support him.
Thus with his position secure Professor Davros and that of the Dalek Empire, Professor Davros can continue to expand the Dalek Empire with the Federation unable to agree on anything to do with the Dalek Empire. The Federation council is split firmly down the middle the half that supports Professor Davros and his Daleks also has the support of the majority of Starfleet command behind them with the other half of the Federation council wanting to dismantle the Daleks and place Professor Davros under arrest.
The first meeting between the Federation President and Professor Davros breaks up with no agreement on anything with the exception that the crew exchange will continue, as the Federation President is trying to get Starfleet command on his side and by doing this he thinks (wrongly) that this will show Starfleet command the error of their ways, this will have the opposite effect and draw Starfleet command closer to the Dalek Empire, as this will show what the Daleks are capable of doing and the level of firepower that they can bring to bear on an enemy.
With the political confusion Starfleet command will have a relatively free hand in such matters such as the crew exchange program between the Dakek Empire and Starfleet command, as Starfleet command already has the Federation council’s approval for such crew exchanges.
On the Enterprise the news that the Daleks where created and did not evolve is meat by surprise and a certain amount of shock, but Commodore Picard’s only says that the Daleks have a civilization now and they are a sentient life form and should be treated as such and the Daleks on the Enterprise will continue with their duties and will be respected by the Enterprises crew as if nothing has changed.
With the Federation council neutralised over the short and possibly medium term the next target for the Daleks is the Tzenkethi.
Twelve months after the meeting between Professor Davros and the Federation President preparations are complete to invade Tzenkethi space while the Federation council is still divided.
The Tzenkethi are a space faring civilization native to the planet Tzenketh. A ruler called the autarch leads them. Their space borders that of the Dalek Empire and they have caused a lot of problems for the Daleks with their aggressive boarder patrols and attempted raids into Dalek space.
The Tzenkethi leaders are not liked by most of the major powers in the Alpha quadrant also the Tzenkethi people have been repressed by the autarch for a very long time and they would accept anyone else as their leader as they could not do any worse than the autarch.
On the boarder between Tzenkethi space and Dalek space, the Daleks have been building up a large fleet of warships that now number ten DMS and 500 DHC, the DHC include the one with the Starfleet officers onboard as part of the exchange program and this will show Starfleet what the Daleks are capable of doing.
The initial invasion targets the Tzenkethi fleet to disable or destroy their warships any Tzenkethi warships that surrender the crews are treated decently. It takes just eleven days to disable or destroy the Tzenkethi fleet then the invasion of the Tzenkethi and all the other colonized worlds in Tzenkethi space can begin simultaneously now that the Tzenkethi fleet has been neutralised.
The invasion of the colonized worlds in Tzenkethi space is quite similarly to the attack on Remus, that is only military installations are targeted and eliminated. The civilian population is left untouched by the Daleks. Some of the smaller Tzenkethi colonies only take a few hours for the Daleks to pacify, but more heavily populated Tzenkethi worlds take longer and the Tzenkethi takes over a month until the last strongpoint is destroyed and the autarch is killed.
Once the autarch is confirmed dead the Tzenkethi people rise up in celebration and embrace the Daleks (not literally) as their new protectors. The Tzenkethi will become a Dalek Empire protectorate, the Tzenkethi people will have their own elected government, but all matters such as defence (no Tzenkethi is allowed to carry a energy weapon) and foreign policy will fall under the Daleks control other that that the Tzenkethi people are free to do as they please.
The Daleks quickly set about rebuilding the Tzenkethi civilization into a new a semi democratic race within the Dalek Empire. The split Federation council does not take any action against the Dalek Empire, the Romulans and the Klingons and several other Alpha quadrant powers support the Dalek Empires elimination of the autarch and the autarch was considered more trouble that he was worth.
The Starfleet personnel onboard DHC-2275 as part of the crew exchange program, witness first hand the firepower that the Daleks posses and the combat capability of the Daleks and their warships on there own without Professor Davros’s input. The Daleks have proved that they are not just mere puppets of Professor Davros but capable of independent action.
The report by Starfleet personnel onboard DHC-2275 is read with interest by senior Starfleet personnel including Commodore Picard and leads to Starfleet command approving of the Daleks actions against the autarch and supporting the freeing of the Tzenkethi people, even though the Tzenkethi people are now a Dalek protectorate. This action by Starfleet command is done with out the approval of the Federation council that is still split down the middle.
To be continued.

Part 13 – Neighbours and Technology
All of races bordering the Dalek Empire have signed non-aggression packs with the Dalek Empire, after seeing what the Daleks did to the Tzenkethi and how quickly the Daleks conquered the Tzenkethi. Races such as the Federation, Breen and the Ferengi already have non-aggression packs along with races that do not boarder the Dalek Empire like the Gorn, Tholian Assembly and the Klingon Empire.
The only race to have a mutual defence pact with the Dalek Empire is the Romulan Empire. All the major powers now have embassies on Chin'toka II, though they do not interact very much with the human colonists on Chin'toka II and the Daleks guarding the colonists are providing very strong security for the colonists that keep the ambassadors at bay.
All the embassies are based on a smaller third continent so the ambassadors need to get permission from the Daleks to travel to either the Olack seven or Maquis colonies and this has only been granted on one or two occasions. Most of the time the ambassadors and their staff time is spent keeping an eye on the other embassies making sure that they are not trying to out do the other governments, this action keeps the ambassadors busy and out of the way of Professor Davros who they keep trying to see to gain influence with the Daleks, but are not achieving any progress. A considerable game between the major and minor powers that have embassies on Chin'toka II is continually being played out to see who can gain the most from the Daleks or Professor Davros. At the moment only the Romulan Empire is in a better position than the other powers.
The Daleks do expand into those systems along their boarders that have not been claimed by any power and that have useful supplies of raw materials that the Daleks can use. This also gives the Daleks a buffer zone along their boarder just in case one of the Alpha quadrant powers tries anything (this is unlikely though).
With no Federation prime directive to slow down the Professor Davros research or the Daleks and no moral qualms about genetic research or any other kind of research, this will allow the human population of Chin'toka II to receive the benefits of genetic engineering that will include accelerated critical neural pathway formation.
Accelerated critical neural pathway formation is a medical procedure, a type of genetic engineering, designed to enhance the formation of cognitive pathways in the Human brain. Specifically, the procedure manipulates a person's genetic structure to accelerate the growth of neuronal networks in their cerebral cortex. This can result in tremendously increased intelligence in areas such as analysis, deduction, induction, and theoretical exposition.
This level of genetic engineering can also eliminate childhood diseases and other deformities to help the colonists on Chin'toka II advance in their lives and provide a better quality of life. The other benefit of the genetic engineering will be to extend their lifespans to over two hundreds years and even longer if further improvements can be made during the next two hundred years.
All of these improvements are done on a voluntary basis to the population of Chin'toka II no one is forced to have these genetic improvements. These improvements are not offered to the Tzenkethi or any other race out side of the Dalek Empire.
The other major improvement is the introduction of transwarp drive into the DMS and DHC in early 2381 giving the Daleks and even greater tactical edge over the other powers in the Alpha quadrant though it will take time to refit all the Dalek warships with this new drive system. The Daleks, rather than making a network of conduits (like the Borg use), equips each Dalek warship with a transwarp engine. This special technology allows them to travel at transwarp without the need for a network also adding more flexibility to their warships.
The Dalek also have produced their own version of Borg nanoprobes, these nanoprobes are designed to repair the Dalek from light damage, but the nanoprobes also have a secondary capability to attack and destroy any Borg nanoprobes that try to assimilate a Dalek. If the Dalek nanoprobes fail, then the Dalek will innate a self-destruct mechanism by overloading its Daleks power cells.
The Starfleet personnel only learn that the Daleks have transwarp drive when DHC-2275 goes to the Chin'toka to begin refitting with transwarp drive and to offload the Starfleet personnel while the refit is taking place on Chin'toka II. This news comes as a shock to the Federation council and to Starfleet command and strengthens the hand of those on the Federation council who want closer ties with the Dalek Empire.
In early 2382, thirty-five Borg cubes attack the Dalek Empire in an attempt to assimilate the Daleks into the Borg collective this attack is defeated by the Dalek warships and Orbital Weapons Platforms with relative ease. The Dalek warships weapons slicing through the Borg shields and armour with ease while the Dalek warships shields and armour are easily able to resist the Borg’s weapons fire.
The battle between the Borg fleet and Dalek fleet lasts only a few hours, during that time no Dalek warship is destroyed and the Dalek warships receive only minor battle damage from the Borg ships weapons fire. The Borg has not been unable to assimilate any Daleks during their attack, so the Borg is unable to adapt effectively to the Daleks weapons and technology.
In mid 2382 Professor Davros decides that the Borg needs to be “persuaded” that assimilating the Daleks is not a good idea. Therefore Professor Davros orders that a large fleet of Dalek warship be prepared to conquer the Borg collective until the Borg are willing to leave the Daleks alone or until the Borg are exterminated. Professor Davros will leave the war to the Supreme Daleks while he gets on with his research.
The Daleks begin construction of a large fleet of DMS and DHC warships with the new transwarp drive system. Dalek production goes from tick over to full production within a few weeks of Professor Davros giving the order.
The initial point of attack will be a Borg system at the edge of Borg space, this system will be captured and all Borg in this system will be exterminated. The system will then be used as a base of operations in Borg space, and production facilities will be set-up in this system rather than transporting Dalek warships from the Alpha quadrant. This system will have a large number of Orbital Weapons Platforms constructed, turning the system into a fortress. This system is designated System One by the lead Supreme Dalek.
By early 2382 the first wave of Dalek warships is ready to depart for Borg space, the (this is considered easier than trying to name individual systems) invasion of Borg space is about to begin.
To be continued.
Next – Part 14 – The Dalek/Borg War
August 5th, 2007, 12:30 PM
Part 14 – The Dalek/Borg War
Early Stages, months one to six
The first system to be invaded by the Daleks is designated System One, this first wave of Dalek warships consists of 25 DMS and 1,250 DHC with several million Soldier Daleks. With several other waves of Dalek warships to follow after the first Borg system has been conquered. Also the first six months are going to be critical for the Daleks as it will take this long to set-up their defences and to set-up production facilities.
It will take the Daleks six months to secure System One with Orbital Weapons Platforms and to begin to start construction on orbital shipyards and on the surface of the planet Dalek factories to produce not only Daleks but the component parts for additional Dalek warships.
During the first six months the Borg attack System One no less than twenty-seven times each time the Borg attack they are defeated more soundly by the defending Dalek warships and the Orbital Weapons Platforms. During this first six months the Daleks have to bring in additional Orbital Weapons Platforms from the Alpha quadrant to supplement those being built in System One as the production facilities are not yet ready to begin mass production.
The space battles between the Borg cubes and Dalek warships during the first six months are spectacular as both sides are not willing to give up this system to the other, its is during this time that the Daleks take their first and last warship losses of the Borg Dalek war.
Mass production of additional Orbital Weapons Platforms starts in month seven along with additional Daleks and Dalek warships to begin capturing more Borg systems and continue the expansion in the Delta quadrant. During the first few days of month seven there are no Borg attacks against System One this gives the Daleks time to complete the defences and bring the production facilities online and also finish cleaning the system of the remains of destroyed Borg cubes and Dalek warships.
Expansions months seven to fourteen
The next target for the Daleks is the next closest system designated System Two the attack force will be the same size and strength as the Dalek force that captured System One, 25 DMS and 1,250 DHC. This force will use the same tactics as before with little modification, as there in no need to modify the tactics until the Borg have adapted to them.
After several weeks of exterminating the Borg population of System Two the Daleks begin to secure this system with Orbital Weapons Platforms even while the fighting on the surface is still going on so that the Borg will not be able to receive reinforcements from outside the system.
Once the Borg population have been exterminated the same process as System One now comes into play, that is construction of Dalek and Dalek warship production facilities. This construction phase takes less time that it took for System One as resources can be shipped in from System One to help with the securing of System Two.
The next system, designated System Three by the Daleks, is captured and secured even quicker than Systems One and Two as there are now more production facilities coming on line in the Delta quadrant Systems One and Two to assist in the securing of System Three.
By the end of month fourteen the Daleks have secured four systems and the Daleks have increased their production capability so that only ten percent of the resources and supplies that are needed are coming from the Alpha quadrant.
Months fifteen to thirty
During the next fifteen months the Daleks are able to secure six additional systems under their control, but each system is becoming harder to capture that the previous one, as the Borg are adapting their tactics by removing all non-essential Borg drones from nearby systems and only deploying Borg Tactical Cubes in system defence.
The construction by the Borg of additional Borg Tactical Cubes has increased this leads the lead Black Supreme Dalek to request assistance from Professor Davros to help speed up the processes of exterminating the Borg threat. Even the use of the Special Weapons Daleks has only helped a little even their heavy firepower has not speeded up the process by much, as the Special Weapons Daleks fire is only useful against large groups of Borg drones.
Though progress in conquering Borg systems has slowed, this process has not been stopped. The Daleks in the Delta quadrant have adapted their tactics on several occasions but each time within a few weeks the Borg have adapted to these new tactics. The Daleks need to be able to jump several steps ahead of the Borg to speed up the processes of conquest.
During the conquest of the seventh Borg system Professor Davros comes up with the idea of combining several types of Dalek into advanced Dalek to act as a sort of new form of advanced Supreme Dalek to assist the Daleks in the conquest of Borg space.
Moving to a new level
The four new Advanced Supreme Daleks are created for the following purpose to think as their enemies think and find new ways of killing the Borg and to make weapons and shields that the Borg cannot adapt to so quickly or even at all. These new Daleks are a combination of the Supreme, Research and Engineer Daleks rolled into one, these types of Daleks are more difficult to produce because of the more complex programming and construction techniques that are required.
The four new Advanced Supreme Daleks have been given names to make them stand apart from the other Supreme Daleks they are called, Dalek Sec, Dalek Thay, Dalek Jast and Dalek Caan.
The four new Advanced Supreme Daleks are now equipped with cutting edge technology such as Internal transporter capability, multi-spatial personal force field (an advanced form of regenerative shields) and up-rated armour along with and improved sensor system and weapon.
These four new Advanced Supreme Daleks had to be manufactured as the replicators can not yet cope with such advanced technology and also the cloning chambers that produced the organic brain part of these Daleks takes longer to produce these advanced Dalek organic brains. It will be at least two decades before all Daleks can start to be upgraded to this improved standard, until then these four Supreme Daleks will be the only advanced type Daleks available (though more could be produced, but this is considered unnecessary and a waist of resources by Professor Davros).
These four new Advanced Supreme Daleks will take charge of operations against the Borg along with some input from Professor Davros as needed. Their command ship will be DMS2 and will be specially adapted to provide better command and control capability as well as a larger than normal number of Research and Engineer Daleks.
The Dalek causalities have been very light, for each system the Daleks capture, the Daleks only take a few thousand causalities, while the Borg population in each system is exterminated. The Daleks have no use for Borg prisoners of war only Borg technology and the Daleks can retrieve Borg technology of a dead Borg much more easily than a live one. Borg causalities so far are estimated to be about eleven billion Borg exterminated and rising rapidly.
Months thirty-one to fifty
Between months thirty-one to fifty the four new Advanced Supreme Daleks prove their worth, as the next series of attacks against Borg controlled systems are much more successful. During this time period another twenty Borg systems are captured and secured and the rate at which new Borg systems are being captured have gone from one system captured every six months to captured one system every three months.
The four new Advanced Supreme Daleks have also led the development along with Professor Davros help into the development of a jamming system for use against the Borg subspace transceivers. This enables Dalek warships to cut of communications between individual Borg cubes and even Borg Planets and the rest of the collective, when a cube or Planet is isolated from the rest of the collective it become less efficient at defending itself against attack.
Though the Borg Cubes and Planets are cut off from the collective communications system, the Borg drones in either the Borg Cubes or Planets are still linked making them into a smaller and less deadly enemy. But even these small collectives are dangerous especially on the planetary level. The use of the Special Weapons Daleks against the cut off Borg world is more effective as the Borg drones have to maintain close proximity to maintain their subspace transceiver link.
The war against the Borg is now firmly going the Dalek way.

Part 15 – Deep Strike
In April 2387 the four Advanced Supreme Daleks decide to conduct a deep strike against the main Borg command and control facility known as Unimatrix 01. Though not vital to the Borg collective as another Unimatrix can immediately take over the functions of Unimatrix 01, this strike will prove to the Borg that the Daleks can attack the Borg at will.
The four Advanced Supreme Daleks gather a large fleet of Dalek warships that include 100 DMS and 5,000 DHC for the attack on Unimatrix 01, as it is anticipated that the Borg will heavily guard Unimatrix 01. This will also have a secondary objective, to show that Borg that the Daleks can gather a large fleet of Daleks warships to attack Unimatrix 01 or any other Borg target without affecting the defence Dalek systems or ongoing Dalek operations in the Delta quadrant or even the Alpha quadrant.
The attack on Unimatrix 01 will come from four sides at once, with each side having twenty-five percent of the Dalek fleet (25 DMS, 1,250 DHC) this will force the Borg to split their defensive forces and allow the Dalek fleet to pick of the Borg cubes with relative ease.
The attack on Unimatrix 01 begins on the 2nd June 2387 will the Daleks attacking from four sides at once, the Borg divide their defence fleet to counter the four attacking Dalek fleets. The initial attack goes better than expected and the Borg Tactical cubes defending Unimatrix 01 are split between four attacking Dalek forces on four fronts and the Borg do not have enough cubes to defend all four fronts.
This leads to the annihilation of all Borg cubes defending Unimatrix 01 after twenty days of continues space combat. The Dalek loses are two DMS and thirty-five DHC destroyed and six DMS and one hundred two DHC damaged. The next phase of the attack is to destroy Unimatrix 01 itself this process takes only two days and there are no Dalek causalities.
Once Unimatrix 01 is destroyed the Daleks withdraw back to their own front line taking all the wreckage of the destroyed Dalek warships with them and several damaged Borg components for analysis.
The attack of Unimatrix 01 is considered a success by the four Advanced Supreme Daleks and leads these Daleks to come up with a new attack plan that will reduce Dalek casualties to zero and force the Borg to come to terms with the Dalek Empire or face complete extermination.
The Next Step
After the destruction of Unimatrix 01, the Borg are still unwilling to admit defeat so the four Advanced Supreme Daleks decide to use another weapon that they have available to them. This weapon is based on a Cardassian weapon call an ATR-4107 and was designed to destroy a small moon.
The Cardassian ATR-4107 was an automated Cardassian weapon capable of unleashing massive destruction. Although officially referred to as a missile, it can also be considered a completely autonomous warship in its own right. It was a warp-capable vessel carrying 1,000 kilograms of matter and 1,000 kilograms of antimatter enough to destroy a small moon. The missile also carried a large cache of conventional weaponry, including disruptors, prototype quantum torpedoes, a thoron shock emitter and a plasma spread. On board was a sophisticated computer system that could predict and counter hostile actions.
The Daleks have built several hundred of these ATR-4107, now call Total Annihilation Devices (TAD’s), these “new” weapons differ from the Cardassian design as these weapons have been upgraded with Dalek technology making then far more deadlier that the Cardassian design.
The Daleks pick the four closest systems and launch ten TAD’s at each world occupied by the Borg. The four Borg systems have a total of six planets that have Borg on them.
The TAD’s make their way to each system and manage to penetrate the Borg defences and detonate the only way to describe the destruction is nothing less than planet shattering. Each planets population could have been destroyed by four TAD’s but as a demonstration to the Borg of Dalek firepower. This has the effect of breaking up the six planets in question and crating several new asteroid fields in the target systems.
With the total destruction of six Borg worlds, the Borg get the message and send a message to the Daleks asking what terms for a peace deal the Daleks would need to stop the annihilation of the Borg race.
The four Advanced Supreme Daleks inform Professor Davros of the development and Professor Davros replies that the basic terms would be that the Borg will not attack any race that has a peace treaty with the Dalek Empire or the Dalek Empire itself, all other race are not the Dalek Empires concern. Also all territory captured by the Daleks during the Dalek Borg war will become part of the Dalek Empire and will not be handed back to the Borg.
Within twenty-four hours the reply from the Borg collective, the Borg collective agree to these terms (though they really don’t have much choice in the matter). With the agreement between the two powers (no document is signed, this is considered unnecessary) this brings to end the Borg Dalek war.
Alpha Quadrant – 2382 to 2388
During this time the Daleks onboard the Enterprise continue to do their duties and have not yet informed the Federation of the war between the Daleks and the Borg. On one occasion in 2386 one of the research Daleks working in the Enterprises sick bay as a “medical officer” is helping in conducting physical examinations of all crewmembers on the Enterprise (except Daleks of course).
On the examination of Commodore Picard the research Daleks discovers that Commodore Picard is suffering from Irumodic Syndrome is a degenerative neurological disorder that causes deterioration of the synaptic pathways.
The condition causes confusion, delusions, and eventually death; similar to Alzheimer's disease. It can take several years to develop and several more before it proves deadly. The treatment of choice in 2386 is peridaxon, though this only relieved the symptoms.
The following is an extract between Dr Crusher (DC), Research Dalek (RD) and Commodore Picard (CP) in the Enterprises sick bay.
RD – “Dr Crusher, I have discovered that Commodore Picard is suffering from Irumodic Syndrome”
DC – “ I know, there is no cure in the Federation for this disease, but it can be held at bay with a treatment of the drug peridaxon”
CP – “I am well aware of this condition and it does not affect my command decisions.”
RD – “That is not what I am saying, I can cure this disease with a series of injections and within a month Commodore Picard will be cured.
DC – “That is amazing”
RD – “Negative, that is science! Shall I start Commodore Picard on the series of injections?”
DC – “Yes, please do. How did you come up with a cure so fast?”
RD – “The Daleks have cures for many disease, these have been made possible by the use of genetic engineering something the Federation has banned. The cure is not a form of genetic engineering so no Federation laws will be broken.”
CP – “Once you have cured me is it possible that the Daleks can cure other suffers of this disease?”
RD – “Yes, all you have to do is ask!”
Dr Crusher pales slightly at what the Research Dalek says and then goes back to the physical examinations of the other Enterprise crewmembers. Later Dr Crusher would inform Starfleet medical about the “discovery” that the Daleks had cures for various diseases.
This leads the head of Starfleet medical to ask the Supreme Dalek Ambassador so the Federation what diseases the Daleks have cures for, the Supreme Dalek Ambassador reply goes down is history “Give me a list of all diseases and I will let you know the ones the Daleks can cure”. The outcome of this conversation leads to several diseases within the Federation being eliminated by 2388.
This also has the effect of fixing the problems with the four genetically engineered (and eccentric) humans known as Jack, Patrick, Sarina and Lauren by fixing their genetic problems that made them eccentric. This allows these four individuals to lead normal lives without losing their former genetic enhancements. Once these four are given the all clear they leave the Federation for the Dalek Empire and settle on Chin'toka II with the other colonists.
This leads the Federation to question it own genetic laws, but not reverse them. The only change is to allow and Federation citizen to gain genetic treatment or treatments from a non-federation governments to cure their illness. The two factions within the Federation are now more divided than ever before, though the anti Dalek faction does not have the support of Starfleet command that the pro Dalek faction has.
Informing the other powers – 2388
While the Dalek Empire is attacking the Borg, the major powers in the Alpha quadrant (and the Dominion) have not been informed of the Dalek Borg war, until the war is over and the Dalek Empires victory. This causes quite a stare within the Alpha quadrant powers, but is considerably muted by the fact that the Borg will not assimilate all races that have non-aggression treaty with the Dalek Empire or mutual defence treaty as well.
The reactions from the various powers varies but the strongest is verbal any nothing more than that, even then there is no real opposition to what Professor Davros and Daleks have done to the Borg, just that the other races where not informed.
To be continued.

Part 16 – Alliances
The Klingon Empire is quite upset that the Daleks have not invited them to participate in the war against the Borg (the Klingon always enjoy a good war), but even without the Klingon Empire being involved the Klingons fully support the Dalek actions against the Borg collective (after the Daleks have won).
The Klingon Empire does not want a war with a power like the Dalek Empire that can destroy the Klingon Empire completely, it will be much better for the Klingon Empire to sign a treaty with the Dalek Empire and fight beside the Daleks rather than against them (and much more fun for the Klingon Empire!).
The Romulan Empire is the only government to have both a mutual defence and non-aggression packs each other for mutual defence and the exchange of ambassadors with the Dalek Empire. No power in the Alpha quadrant is willing to attack the Romulan Empire for fear of bring the Daleks wrath upon them.
The Romulan Empire has used this fear of the Daleks to expand its own empire into the Beta quadrant at a very fast pace without encountering much opposition. By conquering races that do not have non-aggression packs with the Dalek Empire. The Dalek Empire has said nothing about this level of conquest.
United Federation of Planets
The United Federation of Planets would remain divided about the Dalek Empire with the Federation Council still split 50/50, but with Starfleet command supporting the 50 percent that are in favour of closer ties with the Dalek Empire, but to do this they would need a two-thirds majority (which they don’t have at the moment).
Until the two-thirds majority was achieved all the Federation had at the moment was a non-aggression pack with the Dalek Empire and not much else. The Federation ambassador to the Dalek Empire could not negotiate and treaties with the Dalek Empire without the two-thirds majority of the Federation Council.
The Dalek Empire has not expanded much beyond the boarders of the old Cardassian, with the exception of capturing the Tzenkethi and taking over several unclaimed systems along their boarder to enhance their own boarder security.
In the Delta quadrant the Daleks control fifty-seven former Borg systems and are in the processes of improving the system defences now that the war between the Daleks and the Borg is over.
There are Daleks stationed on Deep Space Nine as part of a joint agreement between the Federation, Romulan Empire, Klingon Empire and the Dalek Empire to ensure the security of the wormhole entrance to make sure that the Dominion does not try to attack them again.
The Daleks have come a long way it a short space of time and have become the dominant power in the Milky Way Galaxy and will remain the dominant power in the very long term as their technological and industrial base grows.
Other Alpha Quadrant races
Most of the other races in the Alpha Quadrant have non-aggression packs with the Dalek Empire protecting these races from attack by the Daleks. Also these non-aggression packs have also brought peace between races that would normally be at conflict with each other, as these races fear the Daleks more than they fear each other and these races to not wish to be exterminated by the Daleks.
These races do not attack their enemies for fear of a Dalek response, thus ensuring an unusual form of peace within the Alpha Quadrant. Even though these races only have non-aggression packs with the Daleks, this means is they did attack each other the Daleks would not intervene, but these races have misinterpreted the non-aggression packs.
Dominion and the Cardassian Union
In the Gamma Quadrant the Cardassian Union has been reformed and rebuilt under the protection of the Dominion, this has allowed the Dominion to expand within the Gamma Quadrant, increasing in size by twenty percent. The new Cardassian Union worlds are still being set-up and this with take several more decades until the Cardassian Union is fully running as a fully functional government within the Dominion.
The size of the Dominion and the “new” Cardassian Union covers roughly thirty-five percent of the Gamma Quadrant under direct Dominion rule, but also a further twenty percent that come under the status as “protectorates” of the Dominion. These “protectorates” have their own limited military forces (under Dominion command) also if the Dominion was attacked these “protectorates” military forces and industrial capabilities would come under direct Dominion control.
The Dominion and the Cardassian Union maintains strong patrols near the entrance to the wormhole, the Dominion and the Cardassian Union is now fully aware that the Daleks have beaten the race known as the Borg and have managed to establish a non-aggression pack with the Borg.
The Dominions industrial might within the Gamma Quadrant far exceeds the production capacity of all the major powers with the Alpha Quadrant, but the Dominion is unable to bring its industrial might to bare on the races in the Alpha Quadrant as all these resources would have to come though the wormhole making any renewal of hostiles pointless.
With the peace between the Borg and the Dalek Empire the Borg are rapidly assimilating any race that does not have either a non-aggression pack or any kind of treaty with the Dalek Empire, to make up for the Borg’s losses during the Borg Dalek war.
The Borg have learned very little about the Dalek Empire so they are unable to adapt to the Daleks technology, they think by assimilating additional races the Borg will be able to finds a way of defeating the Daleks (though this will not work). The Borg will spend the next few centuries trying this idea out but not getting anywhere.
This race has remained within its own fluidic space. Species 8472 have been observing the war between the Daleks and the Borg and have seen that the Borg are not all powerful race within the Milky Way Galaxy that Species 8472 had been lead to believe. Species 8472 had been warned by Captain Janeway that if they returned that the modified Borg nanoprobes would be used to destroy Species 8472.
Species 8472 has no intention of returning to be wiped out, Species 8472 will remain in their own realm and simply observe these races and no more.
Thus indirectly the Dalek Empire has brought a sort of peace within the Alpha Quadrant and to some parts of the Milky Way Galaxy but not all parts.
To be continued.

Part 17 – Unfinished Business
In early 2389 Vice Admiral Janeway in a rare meeting with Professor Davros and the Advanced Supreme Daleks Sec, Thay, Jast and Caan about the possibility of using one of the Dalek warships to transport Starfleet personnel to the Delta Quadrant to make contact again with those races that Voyager encountered during its voyage home.
As Professor Davros and the Daleks will not give the transwarp drive technology to the Federation or anyone else Vice Admiral Janeway thought the Daleks might give some Starfleet personnel a lift to various places within the Delta Quadrant.
After a short discussion between Professor Davros and the four Advanced Supreme Daleks, they agree to Vice Admiral Janeways proposal and they also state that the four Advanced Supreme Daleks will use their own flagship and escort group to transport the Starfleet personnel a lift to various places within the Delta Quadrant. Vice Admiral Janeway say that it is not really necessary that Daleks Sec, Thay, Jast and Caan come and that any Dalek warship would be ok, but Professor Davros insists and Vice Admiral Janeway gives in (not much else she could really do but agree).
Starfleet command will be sending Vice Admiral Janeway as leader of the Starfleet personal on this expedition, with Captain Tom Paris, Commander B'Elanna Torres and several other Starfleet personnel.
The Starfleet personnel will travel to the Chin'toka system on USS Voyager (Vice Admiral Janeway old ship) now under the command of Captain Tuvok and from there embark to the Dalek warship for their mission to the Delta Quadrant.
The trip from Earth to the boarder is uneventful, on arrival at the Daleks Empires boarder Voyager comes out of warp and proceeds at impulse while transmitting a request to the Daleks requesting permission to enter Dalek space. To continue into Dalek space without permission would prove fatal, once clearance is granted Voyager proceeds straight for the Chin'toka system.
On arrival in the Chin'toka system Voyager crew sees the defences and the large number of Dalek warships within the Chin'toka system and are amazed at the amount of firepower that is in the Chin'toka system.
Voyager is ordered into a geo stationary orbit on the far side of Chin'toka II, after coming around the planet Voyager sees a massive 2.5 kilometre long space craft and it appears to be the Dalek warship that the Starfleet personnel will be travelling on to the Delta Quadrant.
On docking with the 2.5 kilometre long space craft (later learning that it is one of two new Dalek Command Ships (DCS), one for the Advanced Supreme Daleks Sec, Thay, Jast and Caan and one for Professor Davros) and then the transfer of Starfleet personnel and equipment can begin. The transfer of equipment and personnel takes 24 hours, once this is complete the DCS and its escort group of fifteen DHC head for the first set of coordinates.
The first port of call for the Dalek warships is where Voyager left Neelix and a Talaxian settlement in an asteroid field. On their arrival Vice Admiral Janeway hail the Talaxian settlement rather than the Daleks, as the Daleks warships can be very imposing.
Neelix is pleasantly surprised to see Vice Admiral Janeway and even more surprised to see the Daleks (he has heard rumours about a race called Daleks but nothing more) and welcomes them to the Talaxian settlement. The Talaxian settlement is still protected be the shields that where left behind when Voyager left. The Oxilon miners have kept clear of the Talaxian settlement since the installation of the shields.
The meeting between the Talaxian settlers and the Starfleet/Daleks goes very well and more formal arrangements are made. The Daleks agree to send one of the DHC’s every four months to check on the Talaxian settlers to make sure they are not being bothered and also to ship Starfleet personnel to the Talaxian settlement to use the Talaxian settlement as a base of operations in the part of the agreement.
After several days the Dalek warships depart to continue their mission with the Starfleet personnel.
Over the next few months the Daleks retrace Voyagers journey though the Delta Quadrant encountering many of the races that Voyager encounter in its journey back to Earth.
Three races that they encounter are worth mentioning.
The Voth, the Voth are a saurian species, native to the planet Earth, but residing in the Delta Quadrant are a significantly advanced race, the Voth are cold-blooded creatures, have a superior sense of smell, and skin pigmentation which alters according to moods.
When Voyager encounter the Voth the Voth threatened to imprison them and dismantle Voyager to make sure that the Distant Origin Theory did not come out and that the Doctrine, their guiding principles, which specifies that the Voth were the first life forms in the quadrant, and that they originated in that area of space. In addition, another clause declares that non-indigenous beings have no rights.
When the Voth are encountered again, the Voth attempt to capture the Daleks (bad move). The Daleks are able to defeat the Voth attack with ease and also transmit the truth about the Distant Origin Theory and the false Doctrine Theory. This courses a short civil war and the overthrows the Ministry of Elders, to be replaced by the Ministry of Science as leaders of the Voth people.
The last two races that the Daleks and the Starfleet personnel encounter are the Ocampa and the Kazon over the Ocampa home world that the Kazon have been laying siege to for the past few years in the hope of capturing the Caretakers technology for themselves.
The Kazon first response to the Dalek task force is to attack the Dalek warships (bad move). The Daleks response is to use one of the fifteen DHC to defeat all the attacking Kazon warships and to move the remaining Dalek warships into a defensive position around the Ocampa home world, so that the Dalek warship can begin landing soldier Daleks to remove the Kazon on the surface of the Ocampa home world.
The extermination of the Kazon takes several weeks as the Kazon are spread all over the Ocampa home world in various strongholds. Once the extermination of the Kazon strongholds, Vice Admiral Janeway travelled down to the planets surface and then underground to start formal negotiations with the Ocampa people.
While this was going on, the four Supreme Daleks Sec, Thay, Jast and Caan decided that the Kazon needed to be taught a lesson that attacking the Daleks was not a good idea and dissuade the Kazon from doing this again. Using the information sifted from the wreckage of the Kazon attack ships the Daleks are able to determine the location of several Kazon colony worlds.
It is decided to attack the five closest Kazon colonies and not to exterminate the entire population but only to exterminate fifty percent of the population on the five Kazon colonies as a warning. Each Kazon colony will be attacked by only one DHC to show the Kazon that the Daleks are far more powerful than the Federation and are not to be messed around with.
The Starfleet personnel are not informed of the mission of the five DHC’s until after the mission is complete and all the Kazon sects had agreed to leave the Ocampa people alone and if they did not the Kazon as species would cease to exist, but not by extermination but by assimilation by the Borg as the Daleks will inform the Borg that the Borg can assimilate the Kazon race without interference from the Daleks, a fate worse than death, assimilation!
This threat (promise) that does the trick with the Kazon and the Kazon will never again be any trouble to the Ocampa people or even enter the Ocampa system. Though the Kazon does not have any formal treaties with the Dalek Empire or even the Federation to they are still vulnerable to Borg assimilation.
When Vice Admiral Janeway is informed of what the Daleks have done, she is initially horrified by this, but has to admit that the Daleks have managed to deal with the Kazon, but not in a way that the Federation or even Starfleet command would use. Beyond that there is nothing that Vice Admiral Janeway could do about the Kazon even if she wanted to help them.
Over the next twelve months both the Daleks and the Federation/Starfleet create a network of alliances within the Delta Quadrant that is mutually beneficial to both the Dalek Empire and the Federation. This cooperation between the Dalek Empire and the Federation will continue for the foreseeable future and the new working relationship has given those within the Federation council more of a say than those members of the Federation council who oppose the Daleks and Professor Davros.
Thus the Dalek Empire will now take it place as the Milky Way Galaxy’s main superpower along side the other “superpowers” Federation, Klingon Empire, The Dominion, The Romulan Empire and the Borg to name but a few.
