The Klingons returned to Rigel in stardate 1/1818, this time to commence active trading. In response, many Orion trading [[caj|families]] reduced trade with the Federation, shutting down operations and closing their ports, much to Federation irritation. For the rest, by carefully staggering and timing ship arrivals, they kept the two powers from encountering one another for many more years.

After Orion ports remained closed to even emergency traffic, the Federation threatened to revoke its non-aggression treaties in stardate [[2124 SFC|1/2412]], so the Orions reopened their ports to Federation trade, albeit on a limited basis. Another treaty was signed between the two, promising Orion worlds protection from outside aggression and binding the Orions to refrain "directly" attacking the Federation. In the event of war between the Klingon Empire and the Federation, the treaties enabled the Orions to potentially trade with both sides.<ref name="FASAKlingons"/>

The situation worsened on stardate 1/2701.14 when Human and Andorian settlers on [[Beta VI]] ordered the removal of a pre-existing Orion Colony, accusing them of "chronic criminal activity and corruption". The BPC insisted on the appointment of a [[Federation High Commission]], which supported the Federation colonists and advocated the Orion relocation. The Orions left without paying their bills, amounting to 21.32 million credits lost to Beta VI, plus the costs of moving the Orions in the first place. On one positive note, the Orion Colony of [[Bensonia|Votannis]] was sold to the Federation-based [[Benson Development Corporation]] in stardate 1/2706 with no conflicts.<ref name="FASAOrions1"/>
