Tempus Fugit is the first story in the The Star Eagle Adventures series and is set in the year 2372, exactly one year after the ship has been commissioned under the command of Captain Michael Owens.
The story begins with a look back at Owens’ first significant command assignment, six years prior. Together with his trusted friend and confidant DeMara Deen, Owens is tasked with supervising a highly significant scientific experiment led by his own brother.
Back in 2372 Owens and Eagle celebrate the anniversary of the ship’s first completed year in service only to be interrupted by a call from Amdiral Owens, Michael's father. Eagle receives new orders which will take its captain onto a journey into the most dangerous corners of the galaxy and bring him face to face with the demons of his past.
In the meantime So’Dan Leva, Eagle’s conflicted half-Romulan tactical officer has to come to terms with his own problems when he finds himself stuck in the middle of a relationship triangle with implications which run far deeper than he could have ever expected.
Eternal Flame is the second story in the The Star Eagle Adventures series and is set in 2373, a few months after the events of Tempus Fugit.
While on a routine exploratory mission Eagle makes a most valuable find. A well preserved city built by a now extinct but immensely powerful space-faring civilization over five hundred thousand years ago.
A sizable science team is dispatched to the surface to attempt to uncover the secrets left behind by the Hyterians but Owens’ own enthusiasm over the new discovery is severely dampened after he becomes victim of an unexplained accident while visiting the city.
While the captain struggles with the strange after effects of the accident, his crew are quickly discovering that they are not the only ones interested in uncovering the secrets left behind by the former super-civilization.
Prelude to War is a series of seven short stories and vignettes focusing on the senior officers of Eagle at various stages in their lives. They include among others:
All The Time In The World: Set in May 2356 and during the last days of Michael Owens’ days at Starfleet Academy, the young man and soon to be Starfleet officer must make a decision which will define the person he will become.
Love’s Battleground: Set in May 2373 and a few weeks after the events of Eternal Flame, Nora Laas suddenly realizes that she is facing her most difficult challenge to date. Coming to terms with her budding feelings for the ship’s first officer Eugene Edison.
The Romulan Affair: Set in May 2369 while So’Dan Leva is the security chief onboard the space station Deep Space 2, the conflicted half-Romulan Leva finds himself thrust in the middle of a murder investigation involving Klingons, Romulans and prejudiced humans.
Morale is low on Eagle as its crew has been decimated by emergency reassignments and war casualties alike and finds itself on constant battle duty. Together with Amaya Donners’ USS Agamemnon they have been tasked to patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone and stop the enemy from using it to launch attacks against vulnerable Federation targets.
However new orders from Starfleet Command has Eagle abandon those duties in order to carry out what appears to be a routine cargo mission far removed from the frontlines. But Owens and his crew are soon to find out that very little about their new mission is routine.
To make matters worse, crew conflicts are on a rise with So’Dan Leva’s growing animosity towards the Klingon exchange officer who has joined the crew and Owens being reunited with the first woman he has ever loved.
Eagle and its crew are set on a course of self-destruction in the face of their greatest challenge yet.
The fourth installment in The Star Eagle Adventures is set a few months after Cry Havoc and during the Dominion War.
Eagle and the border cutter USS Bluefin (Star Trek: Tales of the USS Bluefin) have been dispatched to a world in a remote pocket of space near the Cardassian border. Recently promoted Admiral Melvin Schwarzkopf believes that Tiaita and its resource-rich system will provide the key to winning the war against the Dominion.
Meanwhile, Commander Tazla Star, a disgraced former starship captain is in a battle of her own as she tries to find a path leading her to redemption. But her journey is destined to turn her against Schwarzkopf as well as the crews of Eagle and Bluefin.
Crossing Over is the second series of vignettes which focus on Eagle's senior officers at different points in their lives. Additionally each vignette includes an encounter between an Eagle character and a person from another United Trek series. Crossing Over is comprised of ten short stories. They include among others:
The Enemy of my Enemy (Is My Lover): So'Dan Leva is sent on a diplomatic mission to Romulus along with mentor Ousanas Dar and fellow Romulan Starfleet officer Xeris in order to attempt to convince the Romulans to join the allied war effort.
And a Star to Steer Her By: Amaya Donners is the first officer of Deep Space 5 and adjunct to Starfleet admiral Samson Glover.
