Rumors and semi-official statements eminate from the Rihannsu Star Empire, where information is virtue unrivaled by others. It is said that two Klingon prisoners were allowed to escape captivity in a carefully staged break-out and chase. The names of the two are unindentified at the moment, and many wonder if Kahless himself is one of the pair.

Tensions in the galaxy rise again, most likely aided by this development. The Cardassian Union and the Federation are already at war, with the Klingon Empire being hostile to the former, and the Romulans still very ambiguous in their stance. The Cardassian and Romulan ships have been seen together on many occasions lately, making speculations to some form of cooperation rather apparent... a fact that may influence the shape of things to come.
