The SS Boreal was a Federation colony ship.

In 2371, it was transporting the Third Submission Colony group (428 people) from Errigal to 1440 Ophiuchi B V, when it was attacked a group of Lalairu ships.

As 1440 Ophiuchi B V was actually just an appearance of the intellivore designed to bait intelligent races and cultures into starting a colony, when the ship arrived, the colonists' mental energies were absorbed by it. (TNG novel: Intellivore)
