Once the members of Starfleet/Deneb settled down for the long haul, they began surveying the region around them and found many empty class-M planets. They colonized the richest and best of these and added several important mining worlds as well. Half a dozen new research outposts were also built, including one in the Planet-Maker system and another one orbiting Bradley's World. Trading outposts were also extended across several alien worlds, boosting contact with the unique aliens found in the Deneb region. Over time, Starfleet/Deneb personnel came into conflict with several local alien races but none seriously threatened the Federation forces. Scientific collaboration with the uber-tech Ians was creating some powerful technology for the Second Federation. Below is a list of planets and their first 10 years of colonization.


This planet was located around 50 light years from the giant star Deneb and became the capital of the Second Federation and headquarters for Starfleet/Deneb. A rich world with benign lifeforms, the population of humans grew quickly and UFP government buildings were constructed for the newly joining aliens to meet in. Major scientific research is done here, especially extremely classified materials relating to the Planet-Maker, Ian medical nanotech, and weapons development. The planet became a major location of colonization once the UFP found the Second Federation (in
2394 AD).


This planet is as safe as it is beautiful, with abundant large continents and perfect global weather for growing crops. It became a multi-racial colony early on and produces a great deal of metals for Second Federation, especially in the platinum group. Orbital facilities here are small and spartan, however. This star system is located within 100 light years from Akwaterra.


This planet has a rich, organic soil that is far more productive than any other normal planet. Second Federation colonists landed here and began building cities, but it later became a major Bolian population center once contact was re-established with the original Federation. This star system is located within 100 light years from Akwaterra.


This world is a rich and benign, with Second Federation colonists landing just a few years after Akwaterra was colonized. It is located 88 light years from the Second Federation capital and produces enormous amounts of foodstuffs. Eventually it became a major Denobulan colony once contact was restored with the UFP.


This beautiful world is nearly three times the size of Earth, but has the same level of gravity since it has very little metals at its core. Founded by Second Federation crew who later resigned from Starfleet/Deneb, it became the location of significant Benzar, Betazed, and Trill populations once ties with the UFP were renewed. This planet is located over 80 light years from Akwaterra and also has an extensive planetary defense grid.


This rich world was clearly terraformed, most likely by the Planet-Maker and is habitable to nearly all humanoids. It was colonized by Second Federation crews and became a major Deltan colony a dozen years later, and Bynars and Bajorans have also flocked to this world. Dasin II produces an enormous amount of trade goods and is an excellent market world. It is located a little over 100 light years from Akwaterra.


This planet is a mining world that was annexed by the Second Federation because of its easily accessed mineral resources, and the lucky happenstance that its ecosphere had badly deteriorated as the planet aged, instead of forcing the Federation to gut a nice habitable world in its place. Located just 60 light years from Akwaterra, it has become a major colony-world of the Tellarites once the Second Federation merged with the old UFP.


This is a mining planet with deep mineral reserves that was annexed by the Second Federation early when it was forming. Located just 25 light years from Akwaterra, it was the only sources for several types of vital crystals. Since its atmosphere and land is similar to their homeworld, this planet became a significant Vulcan colony as well.



This is a mining world that was annexed by the Second Federation for its rich underground resources. Estimates are that these mineral deposits will last at least a thousand years of heavy use. Located just 30 light years from Akwaterra, its also a top secret research station for newly discovered biotech.



This is a mining world with huge underground reserves of petroleum, coal, natural gas, and dilithium crystals. The planet was annexed early on by the Second Federation and large orbital tankers can be seen here often. Otoni III is a mere 15 light years from Akwaterra and is also a Weapons Testing Range for Starfleet/Deneb.


This planet is an exact duplicate of Earth, a mirror-world with the same continents, plants and animals, and even weather patterns. Researchers from Starfleet Deneb were stunned when they first discovered this world and its human Steampunk inhabitants. Their technology levels were as high as the UFP and they were brought fairly quickly into the Second Federation. It has become a important world in the growing region around Deneb.


This planet is a mirror-world like Earth, Akwaterra, Miri's World, and Magna Roma. However, it is only partly finished; its missing all higher lifeforms and only a hardy type of moss keeps the continents from eroding away. Eventually Starfleet/Deneb finished the terraforming process by moving the Planet-Maker into orbit of this world, a process that took just a few years. Uelterra would eventually become a major UFP colony world by 2501 AD.

The Deneb Arm

After discovering the remnants of Task Force 12 near the star Deneb (in 2394 AD), the United Federation of Planets began a colonization campaign to connect the Second Federation to itself. War-weary colonists flooded the new colonization zone and the area around Deneb itself, growing the population on Akwaterra a hundred times what it initially was. Luckily, the Deneb Arm of the Federation did not coincide with any other interstellar power, nor was any discovered as the Federation grew the Arm. After 100 years of continual growth the entire area became a rich, stable part of the Federation and eventually the original Second Federation area became a populous and expanding 300 light year colonization zone, centered on the star Deneb.

The Tri-System and the Planet-Maker

When Task Force 12 first arrived in the area of the giant but distant star Deneb, it found several major technofossils, including the Originator Planet-Maker. This stupendous device was much larger than Earth and at the time was inert. With the help of the local high-tech Ian race, Starfleet/Deneb was able to understand how to operate the device. While making a planet from scratch took over 100 years, terraforming a world to human standards could be done in as short a time as 10 years. With Ian guidance, Starfleet/Deneb crews moved the Planet-Maker to a system devoid of life but having much potential. Three worlds in this lifeless system were in the "goldilocks zone" of the star and the Second Federation invest a great deal of time, resources, and effort to convert all three planets into Earth-like worlds, all within 50 years. Renamed the Tri-System, these planets became major colonization worlds for the old UFP, with humans, Bynars and Bajorans also flocking to these worlds. The Planet-Maker was then sent to Uelterra to finish the work it had begun centuries earlier. Later, over the next 500 years, it was used to begin a substantial program of local terraforming in and around Deneb that the galaxy has never seen before.

Lastly, the Preserver (Originator) Planet-Maker finally nullified the "Hodgkin's Law of Parallel Planetary Development" concept; there was an actual machine that was making these worlds, they weren't developing like this naturally like Hodgkin had postulated.
