In 2375, while on a "Duck Blind" survey mission of the Ba'ku homeworld, Admiral Matthew Doughtery used one of these mobile, holographic simulators.

Doughtery planned to "relocate" all 600 Ba'ku to the holoship, as he and his Son'a cohorts harvested the planet's metaphasic properties. The holoship housed a virtual re-creation of the Ba'ku villiage.

Once discovered by Captain Picard and Data, the holoship was later used to trick the Son'a commander, Ru'afo, into believing that his metaphasic collector was fully operational, in orbit of the Ba'ku planet.
