In 2409 the Dakota alongside the ISS Liebig and ISS Monterey entered the prime universe after being called upon by Gul Oran, a Cardassian officer serving the True Way and ally of the Terran Empire, using the Orb of Possibilities but Captain Shelly of the Liebig destroyed the Gul's disabled ship, the Praxeth, due to his failure to deliver the orb. The three ships depart, leaving a warning of what is to come. (STO mission: "Tear of the Prophets")
