History[edit | edit source]
The civilization on Quarra was warp-capable. Because the Quarren were deficient in technological automation, they attacked starships using radioactive mines, capturing and brainwashing their crews and employing them as workforce. In 2377, the Quarren abducted the crew of USS Voyager and indoctrinated them. Their efforts failed, however, and the Voyager crew broke out and made the Quarren machinations public.

By 2409, the Iconians held a Level 6 surveillance in place. The planet was under constant surveillance by the Solanae servitor species. Life data feeds were transmitted to Storage Facility Z98 in subspace. The Iconians considered the Quarren method of capturing aliens to add to their workforce interesting but inefficient. The Iconians considered to cooperate with them, alleviating their manpower problems in return for detailed information about their indoctrination techniques. Quarra was considered a potential servitor planet in a revived Iconian Empire.
