In the mid-24th century, Angosia III was embroiled in the Tarsian War. The planet was able to recover remarkably quickly after the war's end, though the Angosian veterans of the war had difficulty reintegrating into civilian life and were exiled to a penal colony on Lunar V.
In 2366, the Angosian government petitioned for membership in the Federation, and the USS Enterprise-D was dispatched to conduct a follow-up visit. During the visit, Roga Danar led his fellow veterans from Lunar V in an armed uprising, causing the petition to be postponed. (TNG: "The Hunted")
