Berengaria VII (or Berengaria) was the inhabited seventh planet of the Berengarius system. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Classified as M Class, this Federation planet was the homeworld for a species of dragons.
Prior to stardate 3417, this planet was colonized by the Federation. The planet was a valuable Federation world that was on a par with Vulcan, Andor, and perhaps even Earth. The planet's location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (TOS: "This Side of Paradise"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art; DS9: "In the Cards"; ENT: "Bound")
Over fifty years before 2154, a Vulcan science vessel surveyed Berengaria VII. In the files from the mission, this planet was described as a Class M planet with a flourishing ecosystem devoid of intelligent life. However, the files did mentioned that a species of flying reptiles, over two hundred meters in length, breathed fire.
In December 2154, prior to the founding of the Federation, Berengaria VII was to be scouted by the Starfleet ship Enterprise NX-01 as the site of one of a proposed chain of Earth starbases. However, an incident with the Orions postponed or canceled this mission. (ENT: "Bound")
"The Explored Galaxy"
"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Berengaria VII was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both locations were identified in DS9: "The Search, Part II", "Call to Arms" as being located in this quadrant. The chart was also seen in several Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes set in the 24th century, from the year 2364 to 2370. These were TNG: "Conspiracy", "The Measure Of A Man", "The Emissary", "The Mind's Eye", "The Game", and DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians".
The Pocket ENT novel Beneath the Raptor's Wing has this planet as the site of a starbase and it was fought over twice by the Coalition of Planets and the Romulans during the first year of the Earth-Romulan War.
Elias Vaughn was born on Berengaria VII and lived there as a child.
