Operation Slingshot was a Starfleet plan proposed in 2370 using a soliton wave to propel seven starships deep into the Beta Quadrant in order to set up a planetary colony on Camris and a joint Starfleet/United Federation Marine Corps base in which to explore space leading back to the United Federation of Planets' border.
The USS Iroquois was slated for the mission prior to its cancellation.
Two months after arriving the Truman began the long journey back to Federation space, exploring as it went.
While exploration, defense, and construction of the colony's facilities were the main goals, several other missions were to be accomplished. Among them, an Argus Array Mark IV facility, drydock, and dilithium mine were to be constructed.
