Mullibok claimed that, around the same time in the late 2320s, he escaped Bajor by stowing aboard a survey vessel. The ship was travelling throughout the Bajoran system looking for possible mining sites. Mullibok claimed he overpowered its six-man crew and beamed down to Jeraddo. (DS9 episode: "Progress")
