In 2266, Eve McHuron, Ruth Bonaventure, and Magda Kovacs all had the same story. They came from places where the selection of available men were limited. Looking for men, they were recruited by Harcourt Fenton Mudd to be the wives of settlers on frontier planets. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")
In approximately 3074, the Museum of Kyrian Heritage displayed The Voyager Encounter, a holographic program detailing the events of the warship Voyager, based on the USS Voyager from roughly 700 years before. With the recovery of a data storage device beneath the ruins of Kesef, Quarren speculated that in the next few days they could be hearing Voyager's version of the events which led to the Kyrian-Vaskan Great War. After a Vaskan visitor asked what if the words of the device told a different story than what the museum showed, Quarren responded that they would change their views accordingly.
