In 2267, the Federation Science Council completed Project Atlas. Council leader Lanugu developed biomagnetic recording, a method of digitizing living beings and storing them within data modules. The technology was used to evacuate the planet Styra, which was facing a world-threatening crisis. (TOS comic: "The Hijacked Planet")
In the 2360s, Hekaran scientists presented their claims that warp drive was damaging subspace to the Federation Science Council. The Council dismissed these claims until the Hekarans proved their theory in 2370 by creating a subspace rupture. This led to the Science Council's recommendation to the full Council that a Warp 5 "speed limit" be established. (TNG episode: "Force of Nature")
