Matalas was a planet where Doctor Phlox was once nearly overwhelmed by fifty patients in a refugee camp.

In 2151, Phlox recalled this event to Dr. Jeremy Lucas in a correspondence, while relaying the incident in which Enterprise NX-01 encountered a pair of astronauts from Valakis. (ENT: "Dear Doctor")

This planet was named after executive producer Brannon Braga's assistant and Star Trek: Enterprise writer, Terry Matalas. (Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 26))
The event might be set in the unidentified war in which Phlox served.
