moved from "Forum:First Minefield?"Edit

Does anyone know which Star Trek series and episode first featured (or refered to) a minefield in space? The earliest I can find is DS9, searching for mine field doesn't return relavent results. Detapa

TNG: "Ethics" referred to mines being deployed in space during the Federation-Cardassian War. That might be the earliest reference of a minefield, but I'm not positive. (Chronologically, the first is ENT: "Minefield".) --From Andoria with Love 00:33, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
I personally find the aceton assimilators to be a form of minefield, and they date to the 13th century. --OuroborosCobra talk 01:32, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
