Their fates all depend on an alien artifact — and on whether Doctor Carol Marcus can unlock its deadly secrets in time. As the hub of a massive colonization effort, Vanguard Station is populated by a number of civilian inhabitants and ships.
One person is a colorful trader and smuggler, Cervantes Quinn , in the same vein of Cyrano Jones. At the beginning of the series, he is beholden to another civilian resident of the station, the Orion merchant-prince Ganz. The relationship of these two to the intelligence and espionage apparatus of Starfleet and the Klingon Empire proves central to the series's narrative.

Characters are revealed to be, like Arne Darvin in " The Trouble With Tribbles ," surgically-altered Klingon spies, and the ruthless efforts taken both by the more militaristic Starfleet of the TOS-era and the other interstellar powers add further realpolitik to the series. The central mystery of the series, and the secret reason for the Federation push into the Taurus Reach, is a massive genetic mystery, the Shedai Meta-genome.
As the series continues, its connection to a powerful and violent ancient threat becomes clearer, as well as this threat's relationship to the origins and emergence of the Tholian species. The scientific successes and failures of the Genesis Device are given foundation in the exploration of the meta-genome in the series, with the s Carol Marcus explored, a civilian scientist imposed by the Federation Council to limit militaristic excesses.
The events of Vanguard commence in when the USS Constellation discovers on a scan of the Taurus Reach a complex and unknown genetic marker. Unable to spare the resources to study the finding, Commodore Matthew Decker sends the information to Starfleet Command.
Two years later, after the return of the USS Enterprise from the galactic barrier and the transformation of Gary Mitchell and Elizabeth Dehner into superbeings, the damaged ship expects to take several months to reach Federation space. Instead, it finds in the Taurus Reach a fully operating starbase , numbered 47 and called Vanguard. For a complete list of characters, see characters in Star Trek: Vanguard.
