In 2376, an Iconian Gateway appeared on Tavela Minor just outside a local village. Curious, a group of three families apparently on a picnic discovered the portal and walked through it, reappearing on Armus IX. An infectious microbe on them was fatal to Armusians, and their presence triggered a major medical emergency there. (TNG - Gateways novel: Doors Into Chaos)
