Draylon II was the inhabited second planet in its star system. This system was located in the Bajor sector, in the Alpha Quadrant. This class M planet was uninhabited by 2370, with definite possibilities for colonization. It had a stable orbit, temperate climate, and very low surface radiation. In addition, this world had good soil for farming, a long growing season and mild winters. It was near Sefalla Prime.
When the Skrreea came through the Bajoran wormhole and believed Bajor to be Kentanna, their mythical sanctuary, the Bajoran Provisional Government was forced to turn them away because Bajor was struggling to provide for its own people, let alone an additional three million Skrreea. Commander Benjamin Sisko of Starfleet and Major Kira Nerys of the Bajoran Militia suggested Draylon II as an alternative, but the Skrreea initially refused. However, after one of them, Tumak, was killed while attempting to land on Bajor forcefully, they reluctantly accepted the offer to settle on Draylon II. (DS9: "Sanctuary")
