2177
 [2] A civil war begins on the planet Gallonik III. The war was caused because the first treaty of global alliance contained a single misstatement, in the articles dealing with territorial sovereignty. This contained conflicting geographical coordinates in a section which established the borders between two rival sentient species. Historians would later judge that this was a simple transcription error. Seven hundred and thirty eight million Gallonikans were killed in the subsequent war. In 2265, Ambassador Jetanien would call the mistake one of the most picayune clerical blunders in recorded history. [2]

In the aftermath of the attack, the USS Enterprise investigates the site of the battle and recovers conclusive evidence of Tholian involvement.
