400 years ago the Borg violently attacked the Aurian(Flame of Heaven) star system in the Delta Quadrant in force. 100 cubes swept through the system not on a mission of assimilation but on a mission of annihilation. El Auria 3 was the home world of the El Aurian’s and for 200 years they had been playing a cat-and-mouse game with the Borg. They were masters of advanced technologies and powerful cosmic energies able to completely render their planet invisible and immaterial by putting it in a pocket universe outside of normal spacetime. El Arians have a special affinity with the space-time continuum able to perceive changes in realities between the different dimensions. They proved to the Borg that resistance was not futile. In fury, the Borg decided to use a Trilithium device to make the Auria go supernova and then collapse into a black hole. El Auria-3 reappeared later and inevitably would fall into a black hole. Without the power of their (Flame of Heaven), they could not maintain the pocket universe indefinitely. There were survivors and the species did survive but they were scattered throughout the Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta quadrants. Their advanced technology was lost to posterity seemingly forever.
47 refugees were just some who made it to the Alpha Quadrant and arrived on the Human vessels SS Lakul and SS Robert Fox in the late 23rd century. Most of those tried to get into the energy ribbon which was considered the closest thing to Galactic serenity as one could get however their plans were interrupted by the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B, which rescued the 47 survivors of the SS Lakul and SS Robert Fox. Ironically didn’t want to be rescued. After the rescue, it was discovered that the El Aurian’s were a race of listeners, who had a special affinity with the space-time continuum.
After the battle of Wolf 359 several hundred El Aurian scientists came forward and helped the Federation develop weapons and upgrade Federation Technology with Borg busting weapons and other advanced technology. The Federation with starfleets aid built an advanced weapons research base in the Mutara nebula called Mutauria base, staffed with mostly El Aurian scientists and researchers. The El Aurian’s helped create/develop quantum weapons, Transphasic weapons, and greatly advanced Federation weapons, Transwarp, and Quantum slipstream propulsion technology. The scientists at the base are researching various ways to extract energy from other subspace and trans-dimensional realms. Starfleet received a distress call from the research station asking for help. Their research into Meta special domains has yielded results that are effective against the Borg however they are damaging to the subspace domain. Another El Aurian specialist has volunteered to investigate the issue the eminent Dr. Anduin Tolon from the Vulcan Science directorate. Who is currently stationed on Betazed. The Starship Leto, fresh off of Shore leave is ordered to pick up Dr.Tolon and escort him to Mutaurian Base. Full diplomatic courtesies are to be extended, then the Leto will assist in determining what the problem is and if possible aid in its correction.
