In the [[23rd century]], [[Federation]] [[sociology|sociologist]] and [[historian]] [[John Gill]] visited Ekos. What Gill found was a planet in the throes of anarchy. Gill chose to violate the [[Prime Directive]] in order to help the native population. Gill tried to institute a modified version of a [[Nazi]] style [[government]] on Ekos—believing that a benign government that did not include the worst excesses of the original party could bring order and efficiency to the Ekosian people without the disastrous consequences the original had to not only the [[German]] people, but to millions of others as well.

What Gill didn't realize was that the structure of governments based on that of Nazi Germany during the [[1930s]] and [[1940s]] inherently invited abuse. Gill was [[drug]]ged by his subordinate [[Melakon]], who then became the real power on Ekos. Once Melakon took over, the worst aspects of Nazi rule came to the forefront on Ekos. The people of {{planet|Zeon}} became the targets of this Nazi government, much like the [[judaism|Jewish]] people had been the targets of the original party.
