In mid-2373, the Malinche was assigned to patrol the Demilitarized Zone near the Gamma 7 Outpost. When Maquis leader Michael Eddington disabled the USS Defiant with a cascade virus, the Malinche towed that ship back to Deep Space 9, and assumed their mission to stop Eddington at Veloz Prime. However, they responded to a distress call en route, only to discover a Maquis booby trap. The disabled Malinche was then rescued by the Defiant, which eventually succeeded in apprehending Eddington.
