- July 4th: The USS Expedition (NCC-76277) makes contact with the Malon cooperative. Captain Vanessa Ann Yates is instrumental in helping the Malon to work out a recycling program, with help from the Federation. However, the Malon soon go back on their word.
- July 7th: The USS Expedition answers a distress call from a distant asteroid belt from Dexa. She informs the Expedition that several Malon ships are dumping massive amounts of radioactive waste in the belt, and weakening their defensive shields. It is learned that the Malon involved in this illegal dumping were hired by Nocono in an attempt to force the Talaxians out of New Talaxia. Neelix being an ambassador makes a formal request of Captain Yates for Federation assistance. After a conference with Starfleet Command it was decided that the colony would be redesignated Deep Space 10, and a space station be constructed to make a more pronounced Federation presence.
