History and specifics
In 2268, the starship USS Enterprise orbited Kala to mine replacement dilithium for its warp drive. The shuttle Ellis landed in a mountainous region in hopes of remaining unseen, but the landing party was spotted by Kalans. A weapons blast wounded Spock, who became susceptible and then contracted the plague. During their mining efforts, Montgomery Scott located a large enough antidote source to wipe out the plague. General Gomi agreed to call a cease fire. (TOS - Star Trek: The Manga - Kakan ni Shinkou comic: "Cura Te Ipsum")
