History[edit | edit source]
Following the USS Lovell's mission to Outpost 5 in 2264, Lieutenant Commander Montgomery Scott noted that the work of the Corps of Engineers was rarely featured on the Federation News Network, but that they did deserve greater recognition. (SCE eBook: Foundations, Book One)
In 2388 (on stardate 65776.64), the Federation News Network reported that the Vulcan Science Academy knew of the threat posed by the Hobus supernova to Romulus, but refused to assist the Romulans in preventing their planet's destruction. This resulted in the widespread condemnation of Vulcan, with numerous planets recalling their ambassadors to Vulcan. Two days later, the Federation Council voted to open an investigation into Vulcan's inaction, and the Academy's work with red matter. (ST website: The Path to 2409)
In 2399, retired Admiral Jean-Luc Picard agreed to a interview at Chateau Picard with Richter who agreed not discuss the Admiral's departure from Starfleet. Richter pushed for questions about the Romulan supernova and the synthetic attack on mars.(PIC episode: "Remembrance")
