Dark Territory is a Star Trek-based fan fiction series that takes place in the late 24th century created by Darkush. Dark Territory encompasses a large cast of characters and many settings for its adventures, but chief among the Dark Territory characters are Captain Terrence Glover and the crew of the Prometheus-class starship, USS Aegis. So far, the primary focus of the series has been the immediate post-Dominion War period. Dark Territory is a hard PG-13 series that often delves into adult subject matter. (Babylon 5, Space Above and Beyond, and new Battlestar Galactica are also heavy influences.)
