The homeworld of Gosis' species was the inhabited planet for a pre-warp civilization of humanoids. In the 2150s, there was international tension on this planet when the Enterprise visited its system. One side had a government headed by Chancellor Kultarey, and a military headed by General Gosis. Their Eastern Perimeter included a large city upon which the other side, the Alliance, had ancestral claims. At a rally 30 km away, Kultarey made a speech which led Malcolm Reed to feel that war was brewing, and even reminded him of the pre-Second World War oratory of Winston Churchill.
