Did the Federation ever return to mine dilithium? -- Redge 17:24, 3 Aug 2004 (CEST)

Not as far as I know. I think that would not be possible because of the prime directive. If anything went wrong at one of the other planets while mining dilithium the effects of that mishap could end up at Drema IV. As far as I can remember I never heard the name Drema in any of the other TNG episodes

of course, wesley's dilithium discovery was a plot point. but there's no mention of them ever doing so, so it wouldn't be fit for an article body. perhaps a footnote for this speculation. -- Captain Mike K. Bartel 06:29, 4 Aug 2004 (CEST)

In the Star Trek SCE book Progress, it explains that the Federation becomes a protectorate of Drema IV and inturn gets dilithium
