Prime Timeline
(The root of all realities)

Herm Gossett was a lithium miner on Rigel XII. On Stardate 1329.1, Benton and his partners—Ben Childress and Benton—struck a deal with Harry Mudd for control of a supply of their lithium crystals in exchange for the three wiving settlers in his company—Eve McHuron, Magda Kovas and Ruth Bonaventure—shutting out Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk, who needed the crystals to repair his ship, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701. Mudd's deception—the women were using an illegal Venus drug—was not discovered until after the deal had been completed, and Benton and Gossett had been married over subspace radio to Kovas and Bonaventure. Kirk assured them that the marriages could be annulled if they so chose.[1]
