At some point, Garamet was initiated into Narisia's space program as the equivalent of a test pilot, and she was given an implant near her right temple to control the secrets, similar to all other initiates. In 2370, Garamet was ordered by her Proctor to search the Narisian system and surrounding space for anything the Wise Ones may have left behind. She discovered an abandoned 23rd century B'rel-class Klingon bird-of-prey, but as she went to claim it, another pilot also attempted to take possession. The two ships collided, killing the other pilot, but Garamet only suffered minor injuries, including a blow to the head that apparently disabled her implant.
Without the control imposed by the implant, Garamet began to question the secrecy imposed upon her, and planned on exposing the truth, but was unable to in her disabled craft. Eventually, she gave up on her own ship and boarded the bird-of-prey, repairing its impulse engines and eventually warp drive; however, this length of time to repair the Klingon ship caused the Proctors to become impatient, and they demanded she return to Narisia when they realized her implant had malfunctioned, and when she hesitated, her brother Wahlkon was threatened. Garamet was able to get to Wahlkon first and flee the system, but the couplers blew, and the two abandoned the craft in an Oort cloud and transferred to a Federation shuttlecraft, where they began broadcasting a general distress call.
Retired Starfleet Captain Montgomery Scott aboard the Federation shuttlecraft Goddard picked up the distress call and came to their aid, beaming them off their shuttlecraft after Garamet claimed the Proctors were chasing them, which made Garamet and Wahlkon believe he was one of the Wise Ones, although they eventually suspected he was not. Using their recovered shuttle, Scott was able to draw the Proctor vessel away and double back to locate the bird-of-prey, which Scott silently renamed Bounty 2; Garamet was not upset that Scott claimed the ship for himself, and he convinced Garamet and her brother to not mention it in any report to Starfleet. When Scott offered to take them to the nearest Starbase or back to the Narisian system, Garamet was thrilled to see firsthand what the Federation was like, as Garamet would be dead or reimplanted if she returned to her home system.

- Although Scott agreed to drop Garamet and Wahlkon off at the nearest Starbase, it is unclear if they ended up there or if they ended up on the USS Enterprise-D before it went back in time to stop Scott from changing the timeline.
