2371, Federation delegation
An Excelsior-class vessel arrived carrying part of a delegation of Federation diplomats and dignitaries gathered on Deep Space 9 in 2371 to greet Grand Gul Ekhart for a peace summit. The invitation was a ruse, however, resulting from complicity from Ekhart and a terrorist, Gul Shyak, who planned to destroy Bajor and all vistors to the Bajor system with an asteroid containing a protomatter bomb and metagenic weapon seed.
The assembled starships were able apprehend Shyak and Ekhart after a pirate vessel (unnamed pirate transport) piloted by Miles O'Brien and Odo recovered Kira Nerys and Skrain Dukat from the asteroid and detonated the weapon in the Seyom system. (DS9 comic: "Turn of the Tide")
