In 2370, a Federation deep space probe went off course and crash landed on the planet, causing some Barkonians to suffer the effects of radiation poisoning after exposure to probe fragments. The Barkonians also had their first contact with alien life, when Lieutenant Commander Data was dispatched to retrieve and salvage the probe's components before they could contiminate the planet's biosphere. Damaged by the probe, Data suffered from memory loss, and spent several weeks living among the Barkonians. (TNG: "Thine Own Self")
