In 2285, Khan Noonien Singh, aboard the hijacked USS Reliant detonated the Genesis Device within the Mutara Nebula, creating the Genesis Planet. As a result of the incident, travel in and out of the sector was restricted by Starfleet. Additional permits were required, making commercial and non-military travel more difficult and more expensive. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)
