Tigan was visited by the USS Enterprise-D on stardate 41590.8, at which point Enterprise personal uncovered a global conspiracy which had been repeatedly rewriting Tigan history using the Tigan's interface technology. (TNG - The Space Between comic: "History Lesson")
- In the original references in "History Lesson" the planet was only ever referred to as Tigan. However in the blurb released for the issue prior to publication it was referred to as Tigan-7, the addition of the numeral was confirmed in-universe when the planet was referenced in "Space Seeds".
