In July 1947, the Ferengi ship Quark's Treasure carrying Quark, Rom, Nog, and Odo, who had hidden on board the ship to catch Quark in the act of smuggling kemocite, crashed in the desert near Roswell after accidentally being sent back in time from 2372. After the four escaped from the facility and back to the 24th century, the United States government covered up the incident, stating that it was a weather balloon that had crashed. Despite this insistence on the part of the government, rumors persisted for years over what had happened in Roswell. (DS9 episode: "Little Green Men")
