In 2380, Captain Elias Vaughn used the Prentares Ribbon to breach a force field that Ohalavaru lead by Rejias Norvan had activated in an area of Endalla. Captain Vaughn tried to reason with Rejias, but the Ohalavaru leader was adamant his people would not leave Endalla. To underscore his defiance, he fired a mining instrument at the side of the Prentares Ribbon just before it took off to return to the Kirk. (DS9 novel: Original Sin)
