|Location:||78 light years from Earth|
The Akaali homeworld was an inhabited planet in an unnamed star system. This Minshara class planet, located seventy-eight light years from Earth, was the homeworld of the Akaali, a pre-warp humanoid species.
Prior to first contact with Humans in 2151, the Akaali homeworld had an abundant variety of flora and fauna. This pre-industrial planet had a population of about five hundred million. There were dozens of cities on each continent. The outskirts of these cities had smaller populations with farms. There were dozens of languages.
A section of the eastern continent was divided into provinces. In one of these provinces, there was a city where everyone was required to carry identification papers. The apothecary Riaan owned a map of the city, which she kept in her lab.
In early 2150, a Malurian named Garos began secretly mining Veridium ore on the planet. This world had yet to officially encounter an alien species, unaware they were already being visited by an alien species. Foreign chemicals in the drills began seeping into the water supply, poisoning to death thousands of Akaali. Riann began suspecting the newcomer Garos, and investigated his actions.
In July of 2151, Enterprise NX-01 visited the planet. Upon entering orbit, Enterprise noted that there were no artificial satellites or ships in the area. Captain Jonathan Archer decided to send an away team to visit the eastern continent, after detecting an alien antimatter reactor there. Following further investigation, they forced Garos and his cohorts to leave the planet. Captain Archer then removed the mining equipment, had Dr. Phlox synthesize an antidote for those afflicted, and spoke with the Vulcans, who agreed to check on the planet from time to time to make sure the Malurians were no longer taking advantage of the Akaali.

Background information Edit
In the script of ENT: "Civilization", the Akaali homeworld is described as having "deep blue oceans." When T'Pol is informing Archer about a farm on the planet, dialogue that was scripted but unused for the episode had T'Pol telling Archer that a dry ravine is a few kilometers north of the farm, which they agree is "a good spot to set down a shuttlepod" without being seen.
In a scene that was scripted for the end of ENT: "Home" (and included in the ENT Season 4 Blu-ray) but never filmed, the Akaali homeworld is briefly mentioned, as one of several small rocks which Archer leaves at his father's grave was taken by the captain from the Akaali homeworld.
- Akaali: Akaali was the third planet in the Akaali (Omega Sagittarii) planetary system. Akaali was classified as a M class world that wasn't unified under a uniglobal government. Instead, the world was divided between several nation-states. The world was non-aligned, and wasn't warp-capable. The estimated population of this non-aligned world in 2370 was 200 million Akaalans. The society was nearly equivalent to late 20th century Earth. (pg. 54)
- Akaali (Omega Sagittarii) system: This system was a single star system. Akaali was a G class star with a magnitude of +5, which was the same brightness as Sol.
