2218 on Memory Alpha:
According to a speech given by John Gill, the Zeon colony on Ekos was established shortly after this year. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

According to the Star Trek Chronology and other reference works, 2218 was the year in which the Federation made first contact with the Klingon Empire, supposedly based on a line spoken by Dr. McCoy in the TOS episode "Day of the Dove". Not only have events in the ENT pilot "Broken Bow" proven this false, but it appears that line of dialog never actually made it to the finished episode.
2218 on Memory Beta:
The USS Sentry becomes the first Federation Starfleet vessel to encounter a warship from the Klingon Empire, the IKV Devisor, near Gamma Demetrius. [1]TOS novel: The Final Reflection

The USS Ranger is destroyed by Klingons during a disastrous first contact with Agbar IV. [2] Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual

Births and Deaths
Ngoj, head of the noble House of Ngoj, is killed fighting Romulans on Nequencia.[3] TOS novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire

Qagh the Albino born to the House of Ngoj on Qo'noS. His mother orders the deformed infant slain, but he is simply left to the elements, and before dying acquired by Orion pirates.[3] TOS novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire

Mirror Universe
Imperial Starfleet carries out General Order 24, exterminating all life on Qo'noS, the Klingon homeworld. The planet is then claimed by the growing Terran Empire. [4] Decipher RPG module: Through a Glass, Darkly

References and Notes
The destruction of the Ranger may have been the last, fatal encounter between the Klingon Empire and Starfleet-described as having been 50 years before the year McCoy makes the statement; in ST reference: Star Trek Chronology. The scene was deleted from the final cut of TOS episode: "Day of the Dove", but would have supported Spock's comment about it having been over, "70 years," of hostility, in TOS movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The canon ENT episode: "Broken Bow" possibly makes Agbar Four first contact with QuchHa' Klingons, in the 23rd century. The IKS Amar transmission (from TOS movie: Star Trek: The Motion Picture) would therefore be the "re-introductuon" of HemQuch Klingons, after the 22nd century; as "outsider" aliens (DS9 episode: "Trials and Tribble-ations") theoretically wouldn't identify them. Most individuals who already know and seen this ethnic group, by the 2270s, are already dead (ENT episode: "In a Mirror, Darkly").
