|Ekoria, a Teplan female with terminal stage Teplan blight|
During the 22nd century the Teplan fought against the Dominion, including attempting to crash a commandeered Jem'Hadar attack ship into the Karemma homeworld, and lost. As punishment for their resistance the Dominion infected the population with the incurable Blight. The Dominion abandoned the planet to its fate by 2192. (DS9: "The Quickening"; The War of the Masters: "A Good Compromise")
In 2372, Doctor Julian Bashir created an antigen that when given to pregnant mothers resulted in their children been born free of the blight giving future generations the chance to be free of the disease. (DS9: "The Quickening")
By 2411 the Teplans' population had begun to expand again. Those still infected with the blight were now referred to as the Afflicted. The Teplans had returned to space, constructing light freighters to trade arts and crafts in systems such as Stakoron, which attracted the Dominion's attention once more. Lord Protector Julyeen contacted the Federation in hopes of gaining their protection, which was granted and enforced by a Starfleet squadron under Captain Tyria Sark. Starfleet medical personnel discovered that the blight had mutated in some of the Afflicted and could now transmit itself despite the vaccine, but Lieutenant Hantra Faz of USS McCoy believed she could re-adapt the vaccine. After this, a Jem'Hadar attack ship squadron raided the system, but Captain Sark was able to work out a deal with the Vorta Kilana to secure Teplan independence from the Dominion.
