Avenal VII was the seventh planet in its star system. This system was located deep within Cardassian space.

In 2375, Chancellor Gowron ordered General Martok to launch an ill-advised attack on this planet. The attack was a disaster, as the Klingons were outnumbered six to one: seven Klingon warships were destroyed, and five more severely damaged, with General Martok himself in the sickbay of the IKS Rotarran in critical condition. The attack was nothing short of a waste of ships, manpower and war materials for the allies. (DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind")

This planet was only mentioned in dialogue.
"AV-in-ell" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide. [1]
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 46) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", pp. 18-19; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Avenal system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. This was a binary system with a pair of B-class stars. According to a map of the Cardassian Union – prepared by an anonymous astrography clerk, from the Cardassian Central Archives, in 2364 – Avenal was identified as a Cardassian system.
