Technologically advanced civilization from the Delta Quadrant.  The Malon economy employed an antimatter power generation system that yielded large quantities of toxic waste, which was jettisoned into a region of space informally known as the Void, through a spatial vortex.  It was not generally realized that the Void was home to a sentient species of night beings who were being poisoned by theta radiation from the six billion isotons of toxic antimatter being dumped there every day.  The practice ceased in 2374, when the Federation starship Voyager sealed the vortex, forcing the Malons to seek alternative energy technologies for their society (Night -VGR).
