BACKGROUND

The Khitomer Alliance is a coalition between the major factions of the four Quadrants. The United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Republic established the Alliance following the signing of ceasefire between the Federation and the Klingon Empire in 2413 on Qo'noS. The Alliance was later expanded to other powers including The Dominion, Cardassian Union, Deferi, Lukari Concordium, and Kentari Union.

Early in its creation, the coalition was sometimes referred to as the "Delta Alliance", as it also includes several Delta Quadrant races who allied with the forces of Alpha and Beta Quadrants during the conflict with the Vaadwaur.

NEW ROMULUS PEACE TREATY

Following the Iconian War, in 2415; Federation President Aennik Okeg, Klingon Chancellor J'mpok and Romulan Proconsul D'Tan met for a summit on New Romulus to establish a formal peace agreement. The agreement was open ended with few restrictions, it was based heavily on the original Khitomer Accords and mostly reaffirmed borders and territories.

Of note however, the new treaty praised the efforts of the temporary joint command fleets and taskforces since the discovery of the Jouret Iconian Gateway and Solanae Dyson Sphere beyond. The treaty lays out a potential groundwork for a permanent task force to present a unified response against any future threat, using the basis provided by Omega Force which was formed in response to the Borg threat.

Quote from: Excerpt from the Peace Treaty
The Parties to this Treaty reaffirm their faith in the purposes and principles of their desire to live in peace with all species and all governments.
They are determined to safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilisation of their peoples, founded on the principles of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law. They seek to promote stability and well-being in the Milky Way galaxy.
They are resolved to unite their efforts for collective defence and for the preservation of peace and security.

After a failed assassination attempt on both the President of the United Federation of Planets and Chancellor of the Klingon Empire by an unknown assailant the treaty was placed on hold until later in the year, where all dignitaries once again met, this time on Khitomer leading to the treaty being successfully signed on the 15th of November, 2415.

THE HUR'Q CONFLICT
In early 2417 the galaxy was once more consumed in conflict as Tzenkethi vessels throughout the Alpha quadrant attacked planets with protomatter weaponry. The members of the Khitomer Alliance responded by denouncing the Tzenkethi and moving vessels to intercept the Tzenkethi fleets. During an investigation by the Lukari, it was discovered that some planets that were attacked did not support life, indeed would never have supported life. revealed that the Tzenkethi had not been targeting the planets or species, instead their attacks were to quell a Hur'q invasion force.

During the Tzenkethi's purge, the dormant Hur'q awoke throughout the galaxy. The gamma quadrant was particularly hit hard and a contingent of Dominion vessels, dubbed the Vanguard fleet entered Federation space seeking assistance. Led by Founder Odo, the remnants of the Dominion fleet worked with Alliance members to combat the Hur'q, leading to an all-out attack upon the Founder homeworld.

During the battle, Alliance scientists were able to produce an enzyme based on Ketracel White that was able to pacify the attacking Hur'q. Following the battle, the Alliance welcomed the Dominion to join as Alliance members, with a requirement for Jem'Hadar to be given the choice to be freed of their Ketracel White addiction.

Additionally, a new Neutral Zone was established in the Gamma Quadrant between the Dominion and Hur'q borders with a joint Alliance force assisting the rebuilding of Havas-Kul, the Hur'q homeworld. Additionally there have been an establishment of peace talks between the Dominion and the Karemma.

JOINT EFFORTS
Over the course of the years following, members of the alliance worked cooperatively on numerous projects throughout the galaxy, be that recovery and reconstruction following the devastating conflict with the Iconians and Hur'q or combining ship building efforts to create enhancements to planned new classes of starships utilizing the best design and ingenuity of all member civilisations.

The Allied Cooperative Starship Development Board (ACSDB) was created to oversee the final stages of many new vessels, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of comparative designs between treaty members and making late stage amendments to these designs. This led to a number of shared technologies and systems being used in various vessels, such as the Narendra and Voríral class starships.

Quote from: Vice Admiral S.J. Hemphill, Presiding Officer of the ACSDB
The events of the past few years have shown all of us that the only way forward is one in which we all are determined to identify that which makes us different from one another and to learn from it, to understand it, and to appreciate it. We must see these differences as a source of strength, for that is truly what they are.

I am privileged to welcome my colleagues from the Republic Navy and Vanguard Fleet onto the ACSDB, and am resolute in my commitment to bring the technological expertise of all of its members to bear. We must use this expertise to address the challenges that we face as a common interest. Together we can leverage our unique perspectives and build the tools, systems, and ships that we need to continue forward into the final frontier.

Perhaps the most famous of these early cooperative class designs were the Edison, Chargh, Kholhr and Dominion Vanguard warships. However it wasn't until late 2418 that a fully realised fruit of the Alliance was born with the commissioning of the AFS Khitomer and release of the new line of starships in the Khitomer-class Battlecruisers that the first Alliance fleet was formed.
The Khitomer class boasts an impressive array of both stopping and staying power, featuring prominently the design influences of Starfleet and Klingon Defence Force however digging a little deeper reveals technologies from the Romulan Republic Militia; in the form of power transfer conduits that dynamically regulate weapon power with excess shielding to deliver greater firepower with less risk of damaged components in prolonged engagements, and Dominion Vanguard contributions adapted from their polaronic emitters allowing a comprehensive anti-proton weapons package as well.
