- In a devestating terrorist blow, the USS Agammemnon and the USS Hiroshima are completely destroyed as they enter a mined asteroid field with an automatic distress signal rigged in it by the terrorists. The terrorist group that released its claim of responsibility over subspace wanted to be known as the League for Freedom.
- An official from the Federation stumbles upon the knowledge that the Cardassians have, in fact, conspired again with Dominion Founders, and that they have replaced key officials in the UGAP project. When that knowledge leaks across subspace, the Cardassians panic and their Dominion spies in the networks of the 4 governments suddenly shift, attempting to kill as many of the people around them as they can before being terminated. Several key leaders in each of the governments are killed. After careful investigation of the areas where the Cardassians were staying, a direct link was found from them to the League for Freedom, proving they were responsible for its creation and actions.
- Stepping up the security in the chambers where the UGAP project was to be discussed, the Cardassians were forcibly expelled from all Romulan, Federation, and Klingon worlds, and they returned to Cardassia to cope with the Dominion's disappointment. The remaining goverments step up plans on the UGAP project, hoping to enact it before 2395 and develop a new slogan for the project - "Never again will we be destroyed from within."
- Fleet Admiral Mark Miller, Chief of Starfleet Operations broadcasts the historic subspace message regarding the birth of the newly-renamed United Confederation of Interstellar Planets
"Greetings. As you all know, the UGAP project has been underway for quite a while now. The final stages are complete, and now the four governments: Starfleet, Romulan, Cardassian, and Klingon, have all allied ourselves into one cohesive union, which is, from this point on, to be known as the United Confederation of Interstellar Planets. The UCIP is a dream, a dream that many, many people have died to complete, but now, and forever, may this symbol of peace between our peoples stand solid, help us destroy foes from without, and from within, and enrich and enlighten each other's races with knowledge."
Fleet Admiral Miller subsequently brings together the UCIP Interplanetary Council, the civilian body of individuals overseeing the non-military affairs of those planets within UCIP , and the Council votes Vice Admiral Daniel Brown into the role Commander in Chief of the UCIP Fleet Command, now overseeing the operation of the Klingon Defense Fleet, the Romulan Imperial Fleet and of Starfleet
