In October of the year 2385, the Cereshta left the Kondaii system eleven days before it was found by the Federation Starfleet starship USS Enterprise-E in the Drazen Nebula. Cereshta was bound for the non-aligned Arcturus system and carried a shipment of erinadium. However, the flight plan had been falsified, and the freighter instead changed course for Doltiri. While underway, the Cereshta serviced two small craft in its cargo hold, one of which was later found by an Enterprise away team.
The ship's crew was lost in the Drazen Nebula before the Enterprise found the freighter. The Cereshta was sabotaged to damage the Enterprise. Fortunately, the away team investigating the derelict was recovered in time. However, the freighter was lost with all hands. (TNG - The Fall novel: Peaceable Kingdoms)
