The USS Newton is sent to investigate a spatial anomaly which is spewing forth both energy and entities from uncharted space.

The 'stripes' first appear to be spilling space matter that doesn't match matter to the area that they're in (all space is filled with matter be it matter or dark matter, it fills fields). Space 'manatees' for lack of a better word are the first creatures that come out of the breach. They enjoy playing around the ship and eating residual ship energies.
Over time a larger creature resembling a ray comes out to chase the manatees. Our probes into the void go dead shortly there in. Three probes get to our side and are quick to return into the breach.
A large ship comes through the widening breach. It does not try to contact the Newton or return hails from the Newton. It fires on the Newton with some sort of disabling shot that leaves them dead in the water for a period of time. By the time the Newton gets word out about what happened there are three other stripe sightings. The bad guys are coined the Ven.
