The battle of Kathra was a battle which was fought in the Kathra system between the Federation Starfleet and the Klingon Empire. (ST video game: Legacy)

History

Prelude

During the mission to Kathra, Captain Kirk, commanding a captured B'rel-class Klingon bird-of-prey, confirmed Starfleet Intelligence that a weapons platform had been constructed by the Klingons in the Kathra system. In addition, he found the Seleya, a rogue Vulcan science vessel commanded by T'Uerell, who was working with the Klingons. Consulting the logs of Captain Jonathan Archer, Kirk concluded that T'Uerell must be apprehended or killed, suspecting that she was responsible for the weapon's creation. In response to this development, Commodore Robert April ordered Kirk to commit his Starfleet forces into the Kathra system. (ST video game: Legacy)

The Battle

An initial thrust into the Kathra system resulted in the heavy loss of Federation starships, a matter that weighed heavily on Kirk. After analysing the sensor reports on the preceeding missions, Starfleet found that the Klingons were using their shipyards to keep their vessels in the fight, an advantage which they saw to neutralize. Arriving in the system, Kirk's task force found that other Starfleet vessels in the initial wave were being bogged down at Kathra's Klingon mining facility, including two Akula-class, an Apollo-class, and a Miranda-class vessel. This attack group of ten vessels was reduced to one, the Proxima-class USS Roosevelt.

Destruction of the weapons platform.

It was at this point that a task force led by the Enterprise entered the Kathra system and secured the Klingon mining facility. Despite sustaining substantial damage, the Roosevelt joined Kirk's task force, which proceeded to destroy the Klingon shipyards, preventing the Klingons from maintaining the vessels in the system. Finally, the task force arrived in range of the weapons platform, where they detected the Seleya, only to lose it as it immediately went to warp out of the system before they could intercept. Ultimately, however, Starfleet was successful in destroying the weapons platform. (ST video game: Legacy)

Aftermath

Immediately after the destruction of the weapons platform, the Enterprise set course for Starbase 63, where Kirk anticipated a debriefing from Commodore April. Whilst there, Kirk intended to inform him of T'Uerell's reappearance and involvement with the Klingons.

T'Uerell, however, disappeared without a trace following this incident, in spite of attempts by Starfleet to track her down. Ultimately, she returned three years later, commandeering Dr. Kettaract's research station in the Lantaru sector. This resulted in Kirk, now an Admiral, leading a mission to Lantaru on Stardate 7489.6. (ST video game: Legacy)

Appendices

Background

This event functions as the eighth mission of the stock campaign in the video game Star Trek: Legacy. As the experience varies according to gameplay, certain details of the event may remain unclear. First and foremost, depending both on personal choice and command points achieved, a player may select anywhere from 0 to 3 additional Starfleet vessels, potentially even choosing to retain vessels from previous eras, to join the "hero" ship, in this case the Enterprise.
