For seven years, from 2261 to 2268, Cyrano Jones used the Spacematic for asteroid prospecting and trading. Less than four months prior to stardate 4523, the Spacematic was in the Klingon sphere of influence. The ship's logs were later accessed by Arne Darvin as part of an effort to divert attention from himself and painting Jones as a Klingon spy. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")
