The Federation Eelstock Convention was a social gathering of Starfleet officers in the late 2200s. In some cases, it had been used as a political forum; most notably, one to discuss the situation with the Klingons (at a time when the Federation was at war with the Klingons). (Star Trek: Phoenix-X)
Rivera Gotens met up with old friend, Admiral Daniel, at one of these conventions. But years later, after the two would meet again, only Gotens would retain memory of his old Trill host meeting Daniel. ("The Tiloniam System", "The Tilonian System")
- There has been no backstory given to the origin of the name "Eelstock" and how such a gathering could have possibly evolved into a political gathering within the Federation.
