In the 2370s, the USS Equinox visited this planet. The inhabitants provided the Starfleet crew with a meal, a few supplies, and dilithium crystals. Ankari performed a sacred ritual giving blessing to the journey the crew were on as they headed home for the Alpha Quadrant. In an exchange of technology, the crew traded an energy converter for a ritualistic device, which was used for summoning nucleogenic lifeforms. (VOY: "Equinox")
