Sometime prior to the planet's colonization, the Romulan Star Empire set up a cloaked minefield very close to the planet. In 2152, the Earth Starfleet vessel Enterprise (NX-01) unknowingly entered the field, suffering heavy damage before being warned to leave. V'Las sent a report to his handlers about the incident. By this time, there was an abandoned outpost on the world. (ENT episode: "Minefield", ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)
- The planet being in vicinity of the minefield was not mentioned in the episode, but was stated in the reference work Federation: The First 150 Years.
