Alpha Quadrant

Daran V was an inhabited planet. This was the homeworld for a native species. It was the fifth planet in the Daran planetary system. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant.


Prior to stardate 5476, there were counted 3.724 billion people living on this planet.

In 2268, the crew of the USS Enterprise discovered the 10,000 year-old Fabrini asteroid vessel, the Yonada, 396 days away from Daran V. The vessel had veered off course and was about to impact Daran V, killing all of the planet's population. Fortunately, the Yonada's course was altered away from Daran V by the actions of the crew of the Enterprise. (TOS: "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky")

The planet's location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a large Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art) Daran V appeared in the starchart Data and Picard were studying in Stellar Cartography in 2371. (Star Trek Generations, display graphic) The location of the planet was also depicted in the star charts on USS Voyager in the astrometrics lab in 2376. (VOY: "Child's Play", display graphic)

The star chart seen in "Generations" depicted the location of planets, stars, and star systems in the Alpha Quadrant. Based on the dimensions of the circles used to mark locations on the star chart seen in "Generations", this planet was located relatively near to the USS Enterprise-D.
"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Daran V 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. This star 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".
