In 2371, Henrik Delaney installed their folded space drive prototype aboard the USS Rutherford and accompanied the crew on testing the device. Initial tests were successful until 2372, when the device malfunctioned, and the Rutherford jumped from the Alpha Quadrant to the Gamma Quadrant.
The Jem'Hadar attacked as the Rutherford crew attempted to recharge the device. As the Jem'Hadar boarded, Henrik Delaney and a security detail detached the folded space drive prototype, making a run for it in a shuttlecraft.
The Jem'Hadar pursued, so Delaney ordered the shuttlecraft to land on New Bajor. The tactic failed and the Jem'Hadar tracked them down. In a last ditch effort to prevent the device from falling into Dominion hands, Henrik Delaney rigged the device up to the shuttlecraft and activated it.
