Arakis Prime was the prime planet in its star system. This system was located in the Delta Quadrant. The planet's surface was covered by magnesite dust and the atmosphere was composed of magnesium vapor, and crystalline glaciers could be found here.

The planet was visited by the USS Voyager in 2373, and was the site of one of The Doctor's earliest away missions. He fondly told Seven of Nine about the 'sheer beauty' of Arakis Prime in 2376. (VOY: "One Small Step")

This planet was only mentioned in dialogue.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 86), the Arakis system was a binary star system of two F-class stars. The system was visited by the Voyager between the stardates 50425 and 50500.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 37) postulates that the name was a tip of the hat to Frank Herbert's Dune novels.
