In 2375, USS Enterprise-E brought Federation Ambassador Kuhlan to a meeting with the Palami to discuss an end to the quarantine. Kuhlan considered the drones obsolete but had potential to be upgraded. The Enterprise passed through dense fields of these drones before approaching a fleet of Palami starships. (TNG comic: "Forgiveness")
- The drones' capabilities were not specified in the story. However, Kuhlan did compare them to Dominion orbital weapon platforms, suggesting that the drones were armed and more complex than mines.
