The Malon Cooperative was an interstellar nation-state, a union of the Malon people based on Malon Prime in the galaxy's Delta Quadrant. Thanks to phenomena like the subspace vortex, enclaves of Malon territory were spread over tens of thousands of light-years. (VOY episode: "Night", ST reference: Star Charts)

A model of a compact Malon spaceship was owned by Pelk when he served aboard Fesek's export vessel in 2375. (VOY episode: "Juggernaut")

First contact between the Malon, represented by Waste controller Emck, and the Federation occurred in the same year when Emck's export vessel encountered USS Voyager in the Void, over 50,000 light-years from Sol. The export vessel was lost with all ends when it was destroyed by Voyager and Night Alien ships after Emck refused to stop poisoning the Void with theta radiation waste. (VOY episode: "Night")

Later that year, another Malon export vessel attempted to steal Voyager's multispatial probe. It was destroyed when it pursued the probe into a gas giant. Vrelk, who arrived with his ship at the scene and held Voyager responsible for the loss of the salvager and its crew of nine. Voyager and Vrelk then competed in constructing and launching a ship durable enough to retrieve the probe from the planet's atmosphere. The Delta Flyer outpaced Vrelk's shuttle and salvaged the probe. (VOY episode: "Extreme Risk")

In the same year, 20,000 light-years away, a Vihaar sabotaged Fesek's export vessel. Voyager rescued the survivors and helped steer the ship into the class O star FGC-527609 to prevent its radiation from irradiating the sector. Of the Malon crew, only Fesek survived. (VOY episode: "Juggernaut")

The death of Emck allowed Waste controller Marssi to secure funding to build her own export vessel, the Apsac. In 2376, however, the Apsac was destroyed by the Hirogen "ship of death". During the Iconian gateway crisis, the Apsac was the site of a battle between a Jem'Hadar and the Hirogen. (DS9 - Gateways novel: Demons of Air and Darkness)

In 2380, the supertanker Keta was affected by anomalies created when They contemplated the destruction of the multiverse. The anomalies, and the vessel's destruction, were undone by Jean-Luc Picard of the Federation ship USS Enterprise-E, and Q. (TNG novel: Q & A)

In 2410, the Malon fleet led by Selvk was repelled from the New Talax system, which the Malon Disposal Union was using as a dumping ground, by the Alpha Quadrant Alliance. The system was then colonised by the Talaxians and became part of the Delta Alliance. (STO - The Delta Quadrant mission: "Reunion")

In the Tekara system, Captain Valak of the Malon Clean Energy Facility requested the assistance of the Delta Alliance in protecting the facility from attacking Malon Disposal Union ships. (STO - Taking Care of Enemies mission: "Tekara System Patrol")

The Benthan Guard pursued, and with the Delta Alliance arrested, Zelk in the Argala system. (STO - Friends in Unlikely Places mission: "Argala System Patrol")

Dralck was an energy weapons officer who signed up as duty officer for the Alpha Quadrant Alliance. (STO video game: Delta Rising duty officer pack) Meanwhile, the Lobi Crystal Consortium acquired Malon battlecruisers, which they made available to AQA commanding officers. (STO - Delta Rising mission: "Spin the Wheel")

Alternate timelines[]

In a simulated alternate timeline where Voyager did not revive the Vaadwaur in 2376, the Delta Alliance failed to coalesce, and the Malon continued to use the colonised New Talax system as dumping ground. (STO - The Iconian War mission: "Butterfly")


The territories of the Malon Cooperative covered several hundred light-years. Two known areas lay 30,000 and 50,000 light-years from Sol, respectively. Waste controller Emck access the Void, another 2,500 light-years further rimward, through a spatial vortex.

Its capital world was the lush Malon Prime, located in the Malon Sanctity polity. (VOY episode: "Night", ST reference: Star Charts)
